HARD BOP, a jazz music subgenre

The album features a bunch of covers of standards, which IMHO don’t exactly fit with the Impulse “New Thing” image – so allow me to take the “!” Away from this review. COOL STUFF.

How to Listen to Music: A Vintage Guide to the 7 Essential Skills

Music has a powerful grip on our emotional brain. It can breathe new life into seemingly lifeless minds. But if there is indeed no music instinct, music — not just its creation, but also its consumption — must be an acquired skill. How, then, do we “learn” music beyond merely understanding how it works? From the wonderful vintage book Music: Ways of Listening, originally published in 1982, comes this outline of the seven essential skills of perceptive listening, which author and composer Elliott Schwartz argues have been “dulled by our built-in twentieth-century habit of tuning out” and thus need to be actively developed.

Harmony Explained: Progress Towards A Scientific Theory of Music

Abstract and Introduction. Love of musical harmony is not nature but nurture. Associate Professor Neil McLachlan from the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences said previous theories about how we appreciate music were based on the physical properties of sound, the ear itself and an innate ability to hear harmony.

Love of musical harmony is not nature but nurture

“Our study shows that musical harmony can be learnt and it is a matter of training the brain to hear the sounds,” Associate Professor McLachlan said. “So if you thought that the music of some exotic culture (or Jazz) sounded like the wailing of cats, it’s simply because you haven’t learnt to listen by their rules.” The researchers used 66 volunteers with a range of musical training and tested their ability to hear combinations of notes to determine if they found the combinations familiar or pleasing.

Leonardo Da Vinci's wacky piano is heard for the first time, after 500 years

Photo: Tomasz Wiech/AFP A bizarre instrument combining a piano and cello has finally been played to an audience more than 500 years after it was dreamt up Leonardo da Vinci. Da Vinci, the Italian Renaissance genius who painted the Mona Lisa, invented the ‘‘viola organista’’ - which looks like a baby grand piano – but never built it, experts say. The viola organista has now come to life, thanks to a Polish concert pianist with a flair for instrument-making and the patience and passion to interpret da Vinci’s plans.

Oregon Encyclopedia - Oregon History and Culture. As a founding member of the pioneering chamber jazz group, Oregon, Glen Moore helped redefine jazz in the late twentieth century. His love for the European symphonic tradition began as a child in Milwaukie, Oregon, where he was trained on both bass and piano. He performed around the state in his teens as a member of The Young Oregonians (which also included saxophonist Jim Pepper). Moore met guitarist, pianist, and composer Ralph Towner—a native of Bend—at the University of Oregon in 1959.

After earning a bachelor’s degree in history and studying bass for a year in Copenhagen, he joined Towner in New York in 1967. Assad Brothers: Sergio and Odair Assad. Sérgio and Odair Assad.
