Extractions: ~ David Evans, Memphis State University music professor "... a forceful singer, popular recording artist, and the first truly virtuosic blues harmonica player, whose richly imagative solo flights resulted in completely re-shaping the playing approach and the role of his humble instrument in the blues." ~ Pete Welding "Easily the most important harmonica player of the pre-war era, John Lee Williamson almost single-handedly made the humble mouth organ a worthy lead instrument for blues bands leading the way for the amazing innovations of Little Walter and a platoon of others to follow. If not for his tragic murder in 1948 while on his way home from a Chicago gin mill, Williamson would doubtless have been right there alongside them, exploring new and exciting directions. Williamson commenced his sensational recording career with a resounding bang. His first vocal offering on Bluebird was the seminal "Good Morning School Girl," covered countless times across the decades. That same auspicious date also produced "Sugar Mama Blues" and "Blue Bird Blues," both of them every bit as classic in their own right.

Extractions: J. R. Briggs Elementary School Briggs At Large Newsletter The Voice of John R. Briggs Elementary School February 2, 2001 A Message from Mr. Pretti The JR Briggs School was built in 1968 and at the time was considered a state of the art educational facility intended to house a total of 19 classrooms and approximately 380 children. Since that time two portable classrooms were added about 15 years ago. As enrollment continued to grow, an addition was completed in 1991. This increased our classrooms by four, one of which is now dedicated to special education classroom use. Our portables still remain, being used as fifth grade classrooms and we are so desperate that we may transfer a very used portable from Oakmont to the Briggs School Site. Special Education Resource Room Currently the school houses over 500 students during the day and space is truly a major problem particularly in the area of program related space. Seven special education professionals currently share a 15 by 18 foot space in which student service delivery takes place in speech, reading and is also used for testing. Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy takes place in the corridors and at an exit way. OT/PT Area In the Exit Way The assistant principals office is in an area that contains the schools server, two copy machines and paper storage. There is no privacy in the school for phone calls as well, other than the principals office.

Extractions: ESTP ESFP Extraverted Idealists: ENFP ENFJ Extraverted Conceptualists: ENTP ENTJ HOME What Do The Letters Mean? ... Mating General ISFPs are the first to hear the different drummer. Many eagerly plunge into new fashions, avant garde experiences, 'hip' trendssome even setting the trends. More in touch with the reality of their senses than their INFP counterparts, ISFPs live in the here and now. Their impulses yearn to be free, and are often loosed when others least expect it. The ISFP who continually represses these impulses feels 'dead inside' and may eventually cut and run. ISFPs may be quite charming and ingratiating on first acquaintance, flowing with compliments which may (or may not) be deserved. On other occasions, the same individual may be aloof and detached. Some ISFP males are fiercely competitive, especially in sport or table games, and may have great difficulty losing. This competitive nature, also seen in other SP types, sometimes fosters 'lucky,' 'gut' feelings and a willingness to take risks. Organized education is difficult for the majority of ISFPs, and many drop out before finishing secondary education. Their interest can be held better through experiential learning, at which many excel. ISFPs will practice playing an instrument or honing a favored skill for hours on end, not so much as practice as for the joy of the experience.

Extractions: JAKOB LUDWIG FELIX MENDELSSOHN-BARTHOLDY rd February 1809 - 4 th November 1849 Mendelssohn, Felix (1809 - 49), German composer, born Hamburg, grandson of Moses M. (q.v.). He was baptized and educated as a Christian, his father adding the surname Bartholdy to the family name. His youth was spent in the refined surroundings of a family of very considerable wealth, culture and brilliant social connection. He benefited by the tuition and advice of Berger, Zelter, Weber, Cherubini and Moscheles, and by the time he was 20 had already produced his famous Octet, 3 piano quartets, 2 sonatas, 2 symphonies and the Midsummer Night's Dream overture, besides a host of songs, an opera and many short pieces. The next few years were passed in visiting London, Munich, Vienna and Rome, and in incidental tours in Scotland, Italy and Switzerland (1829-31), he achieved a wide fame as pianist, composer and conductor. The first of his 10 visits to England took place in 1829. The Hebrides (fingal's Cave) overture was composed in 1830 (revised 1832). In 1835 he became conductor of the celebrated Leipzig Gewandhaus orchestra, and 2 years later married Cecile Jeanrenaud at Frankfurt. He conducted his oratorio St Paul at Dusseldorf in 1836 and Elijah at Birmingham in 1846. Persistent overwork and an excess of activities undermined his health: he died in Leipzig. His reputation, extravagantly high in his lifetime, is now sustained mainly by his violin Concerto, 1844, the incidental music to A Midsummer Night's Dream (particularly the overture), the Scottish and Italian symphonies and the Hebrides overture. Elijah is still popular with choral societies, but the chamber music and piano works (examples of impeccable craftsmanship, like all Mendelssohn's music) appeal to a more limited circle.

Extractions: J. R. Briggs Elementary School Briggs At Large Newsletter The Voice of John R. Briggs Elementary School January 26, 2001 A Message from Mr. Pretti The school department faces the very same challenges hoping to at least maintain programs and teachers. The promises of our politicians whether from state government or up to the presidency (in the hope of fixing or saving education) seems both hollow and ironic. How many education presidents and governors will we have before the average town benefits? Every year we face overrides. Every year we are unable to purchase the new program, or hire the position(s) that will make a true impact on education in the school district. Ashburnham and Westminster are certainly not alone. We are unable to fix these problems by ourselves. Municipalities in Massachusetts all face these very same funding issues yet promises of state aid increases are realistically just promises. It will take significant state increases in funding for education and municipalities to ease the pain of increasing local tax bill. In the interim the reality is that schools can only hope and perhaps pray (away from school!) that taxpayers will understand the bind that municipalities face. In a time in which we are hoping to improve on our MCAS scores, we are strapped with the reality of our limitations for true change and for improvements for our children. Our schools will have to continue to be creative and hope that fuel, health care, and uncontrolled costs wont reduce us to the level of the most dangerous of losses in education our teachers

Extractions: VIC BRIGGS England was a grim place in the years following the Second World War and Vic, like many of his contemporaries, was always listening to the radio as a way to escape some of the gloom that surrounded peoples' lives in the early '50's. When he was ten years old Vic heard Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley and the Comets . It was thrillingly unlike anything he had ever heard before and he began to collect records by Bill Haley, Elvis Presley and Little Richard , the wild abandon of the music of the latter quickly made him Vics favorite rock n roll artist. At 12 years, Vic began to attend Hampton Grammar School . In spite of its very staid middle class traditions and rigid attitudes, and the fact that the headmaster and teaching staff were vehemently opposed to rock music and the culture that surrounded it, pupils from that school had a huge influence on the rock music scene in years to come. Amongst Vics contemporaries at Hampton Grammar were Paul Samwell- Smith and Jim McCarty ( The Yardbirds Murray Head (movie actor and singer One Night in Bangkok) and Brian May Queen The skiffle craze was in full swing and for Christmas 1957, Vics mother gave him a guitar. He quickly mastered a few chords and within months was playing with semipro bands. By the time he was sixteen he was playing two or three nights a week with a band called the Cruisers Rock Combo. One night in February of 1961

Extractions: Adams' Dark Wind was written for Marty Walker and this CD in 2001. Although it is a process-driven piece involving polyrhythms and ever-widening intervals, its rolled percussion and piano parts and quietly expressive clarinet lines lend it the feeling of a freely composed, almost impressionistic work. The Fink, Cox, and Fox quintets were written for Marty Walker in 1990, and given their premieres by him that same year at the Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (L.A.C.E.) gallery. These pieces were released in 1992 in a limited pressing on the short-lived Raptoria Caam label, a company run by composer/performer Maria Newman. Fink's Thread of Summer is a continuous melody filtered through the various timbres of the quintet's instrumental combinations. Cox's When April May floats a lyric line over a repeating harmonic structure. Fox's Between the Wheels is a series of quiet bass clarinet statements, accompanied by violin harmonics, heard against a cycling tapestry of string tremolos.

Ellington played the piano, but his orchestra was his true instrument. In the late 1920s he perfected an exotic style that was later termed jungle music. During the 1930s Ellington developed a lush approach to orchestration that introduced new complexity to the simplistic conventions of swing-era jazz. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s he struggled against the limitations of the three-minute 78 R.P.M. recording and the general adherence to 12- and 32-bar song forms, in the process vastly extending the scope of jazz. Personally and politically, Ellington preferred to avoid direct confrontation; yet he was active as far back as the early 1940s in the cause of racial equality. Ellington took what had begun as a vernacular dance music and created larger and more artistically challenging musical forms, exemplified in his three-movement composition Black, Brown, and Beige (1943). Due to the fame of Ellington-the-bandleader, Ellington-the-pianist is often overlooked. Yet particularly during the 1960s some of his most creative playing took place in small groups and demonstrated his willingness to engage such younger musicians as tenor saxophonist John Coltrane.

Everything that Pierre Cochereau improvised at Notre-Dame from 1969 until his death was recorded by Francois Carbou, Cochereau's greatest confidant, and owner of Disques du Solstice.
