Transatlantic Sessions - Sarah Jarosz - " Annabelle Lee " Audrey Hepburn’s Moon River | Performance. An American geisha sings alone on a New York City fire escape in 1961. The actress playing the guitar gave birth just months prior and has a vocal range narrower than the space she sings in (and one that will yield to voice-overs in future roles). The scene itself – a rather unvarnished interlude dropped into one of Hollywood’s most sparkling tales – was almost left on the cutting-room floor. How could it be anything less than magic?

Blake Edwards’ film version of Breakfast at Tiffany’s cemented New York as the American Paris and Audrey Hepburn as a fashion icon. So, take a minute and rediscover what we might have missed: Reverb Soundcheck: Bill Frisell. Reverb Soundcheck: Bill Frisell. When it comes to guitarist Bill Frisell, the word that comes up time and again is “amazing.” His fans use it often, most recently with the boundary-breaking jazz guitarist’s latest album, When You Wish Upon A Star, which was released in late January. This collection of TV and movie music has inspired glowing reviews. “Frisell is meticulous throughout, never playing more than necessary,” said London’s Independent. And, in an interview pegged to the new record, NPR Music dubbed Frisell “one of the world’s most inventive guitarists and composers.” Yet when Frisell repeats “amazing” in his conversation with Reverb, it’s in the most humble sense imaginable.

Eighteen years ago, Aomawa Shields had an undergrad degree in planetary sciences from MIT and had put in a year on a doctorate in astrophysics, but she dropped out to pursue another passion: acting. She was looking for her big break in L.A. and answering phones at Caltech to support herself when, on a whim, she auditioned for a public-television science show. Surprise! Shields was chosen to host. But the big break, in her telling, came in a phone call with, um, a star — an especially luminous one named Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Degrasse Tyson, she says, told her to buckle down and commit to that Ph.D. or else she’d just be another pretty face who wanted to be on TV. Fast-forward a few years, and the 40-year-old Dr. One day, she hopes, these girls will add to the ranks of African-American women with Ph.D.s in physics or astronomy — fewer than 100, by her count.

January 2016 Video: Talking Heads November 1980 ConcertRecorded Live On 11/4/1980 At Capitol Theatre In Passaic, NJ There is no doubt if you loves music in the 1980's you have enjoyed listening to, and perhaps even danced to, Talking Heads music.

This American band was formed in 1975 in New York City during the CBGB days and produced hit after hit until their 1991 separation. The lead singer and guitarist David Byrne was joined by Tina Weymouth on bass, Jerry Harrison on keyboards and guitar, plus Chris Frantz on drums. With the members being friends and active within the 1970s punk scene, they formed a band that brought together art rock, dance, funk and punk to "become a pioneering post-punk and new wave group" according to Wikipedia. Here we have a B&W full concert video featuring a variety of their songs during a 1980's show at the Capitol Theater in New Jersey. Website: www.Talking-Heads.nl. Dr. Wayne W.
