Leonard Bernstein's Young People's Concerts: With the New York Philharmonic

Loading...
Leonard Bernstein earned glory as a composer, conductor, and pianist (classical and jazz), but nothing gave him more pleasure than the joy of teaching. He presented the unique blend of spoken words and music. He is an intensely interactive teacher, getting his audience to sing, springing a quiz full of trick questions. He can take the most abstruse subject and present them to a young audience with clarity, without condescension, and with a clear sense of the material's value. His subject-matter is enormously varied.

Kraftwerk and the Electronic Revolution [electronic resource]

As innovative as they are influential, Kraftwerk's contribution to the development of electronic music remains unsurpassed. Having inspired everyone from Bowie to Coldplay and Siouxsie to Radiohead, this collective has also proven partly responsible for the development of entire genres, such as electronica, synthpop, and techno. This film reviews the career and music of Kraftwerk, from their inception in the late 1960s (as the pre-Kraftwerk ensemble Organization), through their most celebrated period in the mid 1970s, and culminating with their resurgence during the 1980s with the popularity of synthpop and techno. The program further explores how Kraftwerk both fitted in and pulled away from the electronic wing of what is often lazily referred to as "Krautrock." Features rarely seen [...]

Barre Phillips [electronic resource]: Live in Vienna

Filmed in early 2005 at Vienna's famous Porgy & Bess jazz club, this concert features Barre Phillips on bass accompanied by John Hollenbeck on piano and drums. Insightful artist interviews are interwoven with the footage. Phillips is part of an exclusive group of well-improvising American musicians who fit comfortably into the free jazz of the 1960s as well as the European free improvising scene. He has performed and recorded with many of the jazz greats, such as Don Ellis, Bobby Hutcherson, Bertram Turetzky, and John Surman - and at the time of this concert was also the president-elect of the International Society of Bassists. This video offers a rare look at his immense talent.

A new generation of players and samplers now gathers at Roy Ayers' corner of the rainbow.

In a format that was typical of the day, dancing acts and singers such as Helen Humes or Kenny "Pancho" Hagood were featured alongside the headlining Gillespie Orchestra - while Dizzy and his men enthusiastically attacking bebop classics such as "Salt Peanuts," "Shaw 'Nuff," and "Things to Come" remains thrilling to watch.
