Gene Summers Art Architecture from the Author: Werner Blaser. The first presentation of Gene Summers' architectural and artistic achievements. The teachings of Mies van der Rohe and his respect for the effects of space and material has had a great influence on the American architect and artist Gene Summers. Thanks to the technology of the day and Summers' own creative talents, he was able to help transform Mies' visions into built structures. For 16 years Gene Summers was a close colleague of Mies, heading his office and working with him on many projects including the Seagram Building in New York, Bacardi's office buildings in Cuba and Mexico, and Krupps' offices in Essen. Also working independently. Summers created projects for C.F Murphy Assoc. such as the McCormick Convention Centre and the Malcolm X College in Chicago. Later with Ridgway Ltd. he was responsible for the the acclaimed restoration of the Biltmore Hotels in Los Angeles and the Canada Business Center (Orange Country, Canada). Familiar with bronze as a building material, Summers used this knowledge to design elegant furniture and household objects before devoting himself entirely to this area of art. This volume is the first presentation of Gene Summers' architectural and artistic work, surveying the many areas which include wood and water colours where he was active. Phyllis Lambert, founder and architect of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, and President of the International Confederation of Architectural Museums, provides an enlightening introduction to his work.

Excerpt: "Blue Moon" is a classic popular song. It was written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1934, and has become a standard ballad. The song has been covered as a released single by artists such as Billie Holiday, Mel Torme, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan and Cliff Richard. In popular culture, the song has featured in musical films such as Grease and "Blue Moon" is sung by Crewe Alexandra fans, whilst also being regarded as the anthem of Manchester City Football Club. The lyrics presumably refer to an English idiomatic expression: "once in a blue moon" means "very rarely." (The origin of the expression is unclear; see article "blue moon"). The narrator of the song is relating a stroke of luck so unlikely that it must have taken place under a blue moon. The title relies on a play on words, since blue is also the colour of melancholy, and indeed the narrator is sad and lonely until he finds love. Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart were contracted to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in May 1933. They were soon commissioned to write the songs for Hollywood Party, a film that was to star many of the studio's top artists. Richard Rodgers later recalled, "One of our ideas was to include a scene in which Jean Harlow is shown as an innocent young girl saying-or rather singing-her prayers. How the sequence fitted into the movie I haven't the foggiest notion, but the purpose was to express Harlow's overwhelming ambition to become a movie star ('Oh Lord, if you're not busy up there, /I ask for help with a prayer/So please don't give me the air . . .')." The song was not even recorded and MGM Song #225 "Prayer (Oh Lord, make me a movie star)" dated June 14, 1933, was registered for copyright as an unpublished work on July 10, 1933. Lorenz Hart wrote new lyrics for the tune to create a title song for the 1934 film Manhattan Melodrama: "Act One: /You gulp your coffee and run;/Into the subway you crowd./Don't breathe, it isn't allowed." The song, which was also titled "It's Just That Kind of Play," was cu

Catch That Rockabilly Fever from the Author: Sheree Homer. Rockabilly, a musical designation coined by Billboard magazine in the mid–1950s, is a rambunctious rhythmic style combining the liveliest elements of country, gospel, and rhythm and blues. Popularized by such performers as Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Ricky Nelson, rockabilly has been a major influence on the music of Bob Dylan, the Beatles and Bruce Springsteen (among many others). This book captures the essence of life on the road and in the recording studio through interviews with many of rockabilly’s foremost artists. Among those sharing their experiences are Jerry Allison and Sonny Curtis of the Crickets, Sonny Burgess, Wanda Jackson, Glen Glenn, the Collins Kids, Charlie Gracie and Deke Dickerson. Also included are several rare publicity photos.
