Frank Lloyd Wright - Robert Schumann wright died on 9 April 1959 at age 91 date, June 8, 1810, that German Romantic composerRobert Schumann was to undertake a career as a concert pianist, he lived http://www.ronaldbrucemeyer.com/rants/0608almanac.htm
Extractions: It was on this date, June 8, 1867, that American architect Frank Lloyd Wright was born in Richland Center, Wisconsin, the son of a preacher and a teacher. He was brought up a Unitarian. He studied civil engineering ay the University of Wisconsin and got his first architectural job at a firm in Chicago. Wright started his own firm in 1893 after being fired from another Chicago firm for moonlighting. Between 1893 and 1909 Wright began to develop his "Prairie House" concept of design. He married several times and acquired hundreds of commissions over his long career: the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, Fallingwater, the Price Tower skyscraper, the Guggenheim Museum, the Marin County Civic Center, and his own home in Wisconsin, Taliesen. About religion, Wright said, "I believe in God, only I spell it Nature." Indeed, he stressed, "Nature is my manifestation of God. I go to nature every day for inspiration in the day's work. I follow in building the principles which nature has used in its domain" You could call Wright's belief a sort of Pantheism, for Wright would say, "Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you." God is the great mysterious motivator of what we call nature and it has been said often by philosophers, that nature is the will of God. And, I prefer to say that nature is the only body of God that we shall ever see. If we wish to know the truth concerning anything, we'll find it in the nature of that thing.

Extractions: By Steve Sharp Wright was the drummer on Aaron Moore's debut Delmark Records CD, "Hello World." Moore, himself, called Wright one of the best drummers with whom he had ever played. "I'd rather have Huck than anybody," Moore said. "He had that shuffle, and that's hard to find." Wright was born March 21, 1937, in Greenwood, Miss. He grew up in Memphis and moved to Chicago in 1959. Wright performed with many greats, including Magic Sam, Bo Diddley, Eddie C. Campbell and Brewer Phillips. He can be heard backing Sam at the famous Ann Arbor Blues Festival in the 1960s on Delmark Records. He was Campbell's drummer on the Blind Pig CD "That's When I Know." Wright also recorded on many other sessions. In addition to touring with Campbell and Moore, Wright could be found for much of the 1990s backing South Side soul singer Johnny Laws on Friday and Saturday nights at the Cuddle Inn on South Ashland Avenue. One of Wright's last major gigs was supporting Campbell at the 2000 King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, Ark. "He was the master of the double-shuffle," Campbell said. "He was also my friend, and one of the kindest men who ever lived...There will never be another like him."

Extractions: Last updated April 20, 2002 MIDI Home Links Contact ... Wendyish MIDIs Hear some great Wendy ish treatments of Bach from Gary R. Smicklas by visiting my new Wendyish MIDIs page. Introduction Recently, I purchased a CD burner and began transferring some of my old LPs to CD. Among the first albums I chose to digitize were Wendy Carlos' Switched-On Bach, Switched-On Bach II, The Well-Tempered Synthesizer, and the complete original score for Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange". Though I hadn't listened to these recordings in years, I knew that I would still love them enough to have them on CD. As I was determined to edit out most of the pops, hiss, and rumble of these old records, I had to listen to them more closely than ever before, and in so doing, I developed a more intense appreciation of what Wendy Carlos has done over the years. This page is the expression of my appreciation for her art and what she has given the world of music. First, A Few Words From An Ardent Fan Until the age of about nine, I remember telling my friends and thinking to myself that I didn't care for music. "Music" to me at that time was "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, I've got love in my tummy", "Sugar, oh sugar sugar", etc. Little wonder! Then one day, my music teacher, Mrs. Marshall, played for our class some tracks from Switched-On Bach . I was absolutely hooked... hooked on Bach and hooked on the sound of electronically generated music. Not long after that, I was premiering "weird compositions" that I had made by collecting sounds with my portable reel-to-reel tape recorder. Though I chose a career in science, physics to be exact, I have always dabbled in electronic music and dreamt of composing works of my own. Only recently have I taken my dreams seriously enough and began encoding
Extractions: page: For over seventy years Robert Wright and George Forrest were partners in life and art. Together they wrote music and lyrics for film, stage, and club acts. They specialized in adapting themes from classical music into engaging tunes for movie scores and stage musicals. George Forrest Chichester, Jr., later to be known professionally as Chet Forrest, was born in Brooklyn, New York on July 31, 1915. A musical prodigy, despite scant formal training he was playing the piano masterfully before he even started school. Sponsor Message. In the early 1920s the Chichester family moved to Florida. By the age of thirteen Forrest had launched his musical career, playing in clubs in Miami. He was also a member of the Miami High School glee club, through which he met his future life partner, Robert Wright, who was the club's pianist. Wright, born on September 25, 1914 in Daytona Beach, Florida, had also taken early to music. By the time he met Forrest he was the conductor of a radio show.

Extractions: page: Hollywood honored Edens with three Academy Awards. His first, for Easter Parade , was followed in rapid succession by Oscars for Donen's On the Town (1949) and George Sidney's Annie Get Your Gun Edens played an important part in the career of gay icon Judy Garland. The two met in 1935 when Edens was called in to replace Garland's father, Frank Gumm, an amateur pianist, at Garland's audition at MGM. Edens was quick to appreciate her talent and became not only her musical mentor but also a lifelong friend. Sponsor Message. Edens wrote a song for Garland to sing at Clark Gable's birthday party in 1937. It not only delighted Gable but also favorably impressed the producer of Del Ruth's Broadway Melody of 1938 (1937), who had Garland sing it in the film. After working with Garland on a couple of other projects Edens served as musical director for The Wizard of Oz and also as rehearsal pianist for Garland. Garland's daughter Lorna Luft credits Edens with teaching her mother to have the courage to show her vulnerability in her performances. "Without Roger," she commented, "we might never have had 'Over the Rainbow,' at least not the way we remember it."
LEO WRIGHT - Biography 1 On January 12, 1963 wright performed on the first album clarinet and alto, robertNORTHERN and robert SWISSHELM on formed in fall of 1962 by pianist JOHN LEWIS http://mitglied.lycos.de/condouant/leo.html
Extractions: Alto saxophonist / flutist / clarinetist and outstanding Downbeat award winner Leo Wright is one of the lesser- known voices of jazz, although he certainly gained a high degree of recognition as a sideman, particularly with DIZZY GILLESPIE, JACK McDUFF, OLIVER NELSON, LALO SCHIFRIN, JOHNNY COLES, KENNY BURRELL and at times with the Mingus group. With only rare few albums to his name, Wright was relegated to a secondary tier within the consciousness of jazzdom, and undeservedly so, probably because he worked extensively in Europe. When he was drafted into the Army, it seemed that good saxopho- nists existed there in great number, but as a flutist, he readily found a berth in an Army orchestra overseas. In December 1956 military service took him to Stuttgart and Augsburg (Germany) for 21 months. While serving in the United States Air Force he played with the 7th Army band that included: EDDIE HARRIS, CEDAR WALTON , DON ELLIS, LEX HUMPHRIES, DON MENZA , LANNY MORGAN, HOUSTON PERSON and JOE JONES.

Extractions: Review : An excellent album of hard bos- sa cuts - played by drummer Antonio Da Souza, aka Miltinho, aka Milton Banana, with backing by Oscar Castro Neves. The band is a quartet led by Oscar Castro-Ne- ves - with some nice piano by him, and some excellent alto work by the great Leo Wright. The record's a prime example of the excellent style of Banana, Joao Gilberto's favorite drummer - in that it's extremly lively, and all over the kit, with sort of a melodic drumming component that's perfect for bossa nova. Quite rare too.
Extractions: Some might have a hard time getting the point of going back more than 200 years to celebrate the passage of a millennium. Not Robert Taub. together Indeed, though some of the sonatas are 200 years old, pianists through the ages have time and again reinterpreted the pieces, framing them with elements of personal style and insight. Taub is no exception. Beethoven composed the sonatas between 1795 and 1822. The fact that he became progressively deaf after 1800 complicated the composing process, but also freed Beethoven from some of the restrictions of conventional composition. This, in turn, frees the pianist from a lot of worries as well. Other related sites:

Extractions: Since winning the top prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival, "The Pianist" has been collecting honors including a Best Picture award from The National Society of Film Critics and a Golden Globe nomination. The film stars Brody, the New York born actor, as a Jewish pianist who struggles to stay alive in Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II. "The Pianist" was adapted by English playwright/screenwriter Ronald Harwood from the autobiography of Wladyslaw Szpilman, a Polish Jew who detailed his survival during World War II. Szpilman was a composer and pianist who struggled to stay alive during the German occupation. When the Germans were forced to retreat from Warsaw in January 1945, there were only about 20 Jews left alive in the city. One was Wladyslaw Szpilman, surprisingly helped by a German officer.

Extractions: The good, the bad, and the brilliant by Carol Wright I'm no expert, but I have to look at and scan enough musician photographs to know that most of these attempts DON'T WORK. I can almost guarantee that having your best friend snap off a few shots at your live gig won't give you the results you need to put forth a professional image. And your shaded face may look nice and soft in color, but turns to muddy grey in black and white. To get great concert shots, you'll need fast film, fast lenses, andLONG lenses...or easy access to performers. ( Dan Dion uses these: 300mm/2.8, 85mm/1.2, and 80-200mm 2.8 lenses. Steve Marachi says a zoom lens of 70-200/2.8 is a typical concert photography lens. From my experience buying camera equipment, those are very fast lenses for their length. $$$). If you are attempting a studio shot yourself, you can get better results by improvising with additional lights, careful compostion, and a tripod. Best advice I have is to be honest: Can you tell who the musician is, what instrument he or she is playing? Can you see the body distinct from the background? If shot in color, will the image also work in black and white (it's easy to check using a greyscale conversion in PhotoShop or PaintShopPro). One reader suggests using a "black and white viewing filter," aka "monochrome filter," to preview the scene before shooting. This brownish filter will simulate what the shot will look like in black and white. If the location and lighting isn't right, move to a better location. This filter should be available from

It appears that casting is wrapping up for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy . Robert was up for the role of Zaphrod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed president of the galaxy. Which after reading the book, (or most of it anyway) Robert would have been great in that part. Robert requested script changes which have either delayed casting or sent the directors looking in other directions. We'll see.
