Duke Ellington – King of Jazz

Duke Ellington is definitely not one of my favorite musicians, but I have a lot of respect for him. Edward Kennedy Ellington was born April 29, 1899 in D.C. Around when he turned seven or eight he began to take lessons for the piano, but he hated it. He actually preferred sports, particularly baseball, rather than music, particularly the piano.
He got over his stage fright at his first job selling peanuts at baseball games, because he wasn’t used too being around a lot of people. When he was 14, he began to sneak into pool rooms. That’s where he learned to deal with a lot of different people. During one summer, when he was a high school student, he heard about a really great piano player, Harvey Brooks. The next week, he attended one of his shows. When he came home, he had a new urge to play the piano. That’s when his musical career really started.
Three months before graduating from high school, he dropped out of school. Then he started his first group, the Duke’s Serenaders. He then took steps toward independence; he moved out of his mom and dad’s house, bought his own home, became his band’s booking agent, and got married too. On March 11, 1919, his son was born.
In 1923, he moved to NYC. He got on the radio and soon he was pretty famous. In 1928, he found a productions company and they let him publish his music. Then recording companies wanted his business. His band actually became one of the most wanted bands throughout the US, and even the world.
In his lifetime, he had played over 20,000 performances throughout the world. He was given the Legion of Honor by France, and the United States government gave him the presidential medal of freedom. He died in 1974, but during his whole life, he wrote as many as hundreds of musical compositions and why I really like him is that each and every one had a different but strong impact on those who listened to him. Duke Ellington actually inspired a lot of the music that people listen to today.

The Case Of The Missing #2 Album – Chart Watch

For the second week in a row, Jack Johnson’s. Sleep Through The Static and Michael Jackson‘s Thriller 25 are the top two albums in the U.S. Or are they?<They are, if you look at the Top Comprehensive Albums chart compiled by Nielsen/SoundScan. Johnson is #1 for the week with sales of 105,000 copies, trailed by Jackson with 63,000 copies. (The gap between the two is wider than it was last week, when just 14,000 copies separated them.)But Jackson is nowhere to be found on the list of Top Current Albums that is published each week (as The Billboard 200) in Billboard magazine. The top 10 from that chart is reprinted in countless newspapers and websites around the world, including this one. The reason for the omission, as I explained last week, is that Nielsen/SoundScan and Billboard exclude catalog titles-defined as albums that are 18 months old or older-from the main chart. (Continuously running “current” hits are exempted.)The idea is to make more room on the chart for new albums, which need every break they can get. This week, the rule resulted in 31 older albums being removed from Top Current Albums and shifted over to Top Catalog Albums. Just four of these 31 titles would have ranked in the top 100: Thriller 25, which would have ranked #2; Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ Greatest Hits, #63; Guns N’ Roses’ Greatest Hits, #64, and Bob Marley & the Wailers’ Legend, #84.The idea of clearing catalog product out to give new titles a break makes a certain amount of sense. But having a top 10 that forever has to carry an asterisk is a high price to pay. Billboard and Nielsen/SoundScan should consider revising their policy so that the top 10, at least, is presented without any modification. They could even present the top 100 exactly as is. This week, as noted, they’re opening up only four spots in the top 100 by having this policy. Most of the catalog titles–including such perennial best-sellers as Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon, AC/DC’s Back In Black and Metallica’s Metallica–rank in the second hundred.In his Over The Counter column, Billboard’s Geoff Mayfield reports that Thriller 25 is only the second album to be denied a top 10 spot on Top Current Albums by the catalog-exclusion rule since the Comprehensive chart bowed in late 2003. Il Divo’s The Christmas Collection would have placed #10 on the main chart in December 2006 if it had been allowed to compete. Even so, two albums denied a hard-earned spot in the top 10 is two too many.I know that Michael Jackson, a proud and highly competitive man, is never content to finish second. But he should bear in mind that his album, which won the Grammy for Album of the Year 24 years ago, sold more copies in each of the last two weeks than this year’s freshly-minted Album of the Year champ, Herbie Hancock’s River: The Joni Letters. River ranked #5 last week and this week dives to #16.This will be a memorable week for Johnson, who also makes the cover of Rolling Stone for the first time. Johnson was born in 1975, when Jackson was roughly at the midpoint between his initial Jackson 5 smashes and his solo superstardom with Off The Wall.On Hot Digital Tracks, “Low” by Flo Rida featuring T-Pain holds at #1 for a record 13th consecutive week. It is now just 129,000 copies behind “Crank That Soulja Boy” as the most downloaded track of all time. It will probably take two more weeks to top it. The Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em track just keeps adding to its total. It sold 30,000 downloads this week.

Grammy Awards May Be Cancelled, Amy Winehouse Banned?

The show doesn’t always go on. Due to the writer’s strike, next month’s Grammy Awards ceremony is in danger of getting nixed.

According to New York’s Daily News, The Writers Guild of America may demonstrate at Feb. 10’s annual Grammy ceremony in L.A. and if that happens, the strike supporters’ musical allies may pull out of the show.

There are reportedly plans in the works to get Grammy nominees with screen experience to boycott the show. Artists include Beyoncé, Queen Latifah, 50 Cent, Alicia Keys, Fantasi, Fergie, Usher, Justin Timberlake and Prince, among others.

“The writers are especially interested in artists who might perform on the show,” a source said. “If they pull out, the show comes apart.”

But nothing’s set in stone just yet.

“As of now, the Guild has not taken a position on the Grammys,” a WGA spokeswoman said.

Yet if the show does go on Brit soul sensation Amy Winehouse may not be allowed to attend. Amy is nominated in 6 categories including Record of the year for her work on Back to Black.

Her much publicized bout with drugs and alcohol has U.S. officials concerned about letting her in the country.

“Amy’s been told she needs to pass a drug test before she can get a visa,” a source told Britain paper The Sun. “She is doing much better and has cut down her drug use but is still isn’t clean.”

The troubled soul singer who rebuffed rehab in her hit song of the same name has been in and out of trouble with the law, cited for marijuana possession in Norway last October and hauled in for “perverting the course of justice” just this past December.

Winehouse’s mother wrote an open letter to her daughter in a UK newspaper, begging Amy to seek help for her drug addiction.

Now, the singer’s troubles may keep her from getting into one of the biggest music awards shows of the year.

“It is hard to believe there will be a time before going to the U.S. that she could pass the [drug] test,” the source said. “Her team (is) desperate to clean her up as the Grammys is such a big deal. But Amy’s not so bothered.”

Other big name artists nominated at this years ceremony include Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, T-Pain and super producer Timbaland, each with five nods. Kanye West, who is going up against Amy for “Record of the Year” with his third album, Graduation, has earned a total of 8 nominations.

Britney Spears, Old Wedding Dress

britney_spears2_240.jpgRevisiting her wedding look, Britney Spears donned one of two dresses from her Kevin Federline nuptials to go to a car dealership last week with her new paparazzi friend.

Spears, 26, and Adnan Ghalib, 35, arrived at the Keyes Mercedes-Benz dealership in the San Fernando Valley on Friday afternoon, surrounded by the now-familiar pack of photographers that once contained Ghalib.

The twist was the pop singer was wearing the same lacy, short dress from her 2004 wedding to Federline – her second walk down the aisle following her 55-hour marriage to Jason Alexander.

Spears’s own Mercedes was impounded last week after she abandoned it on the road when it blew a tire, but this trip to the dealer was for Ghalib, her constant companion since her meltdown.

“They came in to get an estimate for a new car for him,” a sales associate says. “He drives a rental car now. … He was looking into the different lease and purchase options for sport cars.”

By the time they started talking business, Spears had covered up with a trench coat, the sales person says.

“She didn’t talk at all and it didn’t seem like she was getting the car for him,” the sales associate says.

Britney Spears has appeared in public wearing her old wedding dress; the one that she got married in to her second husband, Kevin Federline. The grand occasion was a visit to a car showroom, with her current boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib.

Britney would not stay in one place for many hours because she feared that her family would send in reinforcements and force her to be committed into a mental institution for treatment. Britney was rumored to have told a friend that she would not allow herself to be committed. She was also firm that she would not lose her sons.

Best Music Albums 2007

It’s the end of the year, and it’s time to cast our beady eye upon what were, in our opinion, the best albums released during the last 12 months.

We argued, we discussed, at times various objects were thrown, but eventually we decided on a Top 20 of 2007.

As ever, there was an eclectic selection of albums nominated, from pop to dance, metal to electronica, shoegaze revivalists to nu-rave disco groovers.

1. LCD Soundsystem – Sound Of Silver
label: DFA/EMI

In which James Murphy’s collective came of age, masterfully mixing funk, disco, rock and those inevitable cowbells into one irresistible, edgy, exhilarating cocktail. From the stately grandeur of All My Friends to the resigned piano tones of New York I Love You, Sound of Silver was the sound of James Murphy at the top of his game.
What we said: “Sound Of Silver is a thrilling, exhilarating ride on a fast machine…You’d be mad to miss out on one of this year’s essential albums” 

2. M.I.A. – Kala
label: XL

The follow-up to the extraordinary Arular saw the Sri Lanka-born rapper burst back into our lives with tribal rhyhms, Clash samples, rapping aboriginal teenagers and the sound of gunshots. The year’s most eclectic album.
What we said: “this is a record as substantive as it is stylish…you can’t help but admire Kala” 

3. Arctic Monkeys – Favourite Worst Nightmare
label: Domino

Alex Turner turned his lyrical eye to the music business, and proved as devastatingly perceptive as he was when catching taxis and going clubbing as a teenager in Sheffield. An album which showed South Yorkshire’s finest maturing and evolving at a frightening pace.
What we said: “The more you listen to it, the more these glorious songs reveal their delights, and soon you won’t be able to live without it” 

4. Radiohead – In Rainbows

So how much did you pay? In all the talk about the revolutionary nature the way the album was released, what was nearly lost was the fact that this was Radiohead’s best album in a decade – lush ballads rubbed shoulders with industrial rockers, and Thom Yorke has never sounded more affecting.
What we said: “Packed but sparse, thrilling, complex, innovative, simple. Without even a dud bar never mind a filler track, In Rainbows is more than any fan could hope for” 

5. !!! – Myth Takes
label: Warp

Three years on from their debut album, the follow up to Louden Up Now saw the Californian band build on their trademark experimental sound and embellish it into a sound like nothing else quite on Earth.
What we said: “It’ll take a few listens to be pulled towards Myth Takes by the force that operates at its core… but step in any closer and you’ll be sucked in, for sure”

6. Arcade Fire – Neon Bible
label: Sonovox

How do you better Funeral? You can’t, but the Canadians come pretty damn close on their second album – uplifting, delicate, deranged and never anything less than utterly compelling.
What we said: “By any standards, excepting those which the band have, through deed, set, it’s a wondrous record”

7. Asobi Seksu – Citrus
label: One Little Indian

In a year where My Bloody Valentine reformed, it was perhaps fitting that the second album from Asobi Seksu took elements of the shoegazing scene and brought it right up to date for 2007.
What we said: “There’s plenty of pop tunes here, but there’s also enough self expression and leftfield rambling to make this an album of real interest”

8. The Good The Bad & The Queen – The Good The Bad & The Queen
label: Parlophone

In which Damon Albarn linked up with an African drumming legend, a former guitarist from The Verve and the bassist from The Clash to provide a record which held a mirror up to the country – battered, bruised, but with a glorious sense of majesty to it.
What we said: “A remarkable achievement and more proof – if any were needed – that Albarn is one of the most innovative and talented songwriters of his generation.”

9. Simian Mobile Disco – Attack Decay Sustain Release
label: Wichita

James Ford may be better known as producer of Klaxons and Arctic Monkeys, but he’s also half of arguably Britain’s most exciting new dance act – more old school house than nu-rave and all the better for it.
What we said: “It’s difficult to detect any flaws in Attack Decay Sustain Release. Simian Mobile Disco have created a seamless electronica album”

10. The White Stripes – Icky Thump
label: XL

Jack and Meg marked their return with a ‘back to basics’ blues-rock squeal of a record – featuring bagpipe samples, 70s country-rock, and an absolutely berserk marachi number, Icky Thump also contained some of Jack White’s best songs yet.
What we said: “Never less than absolutely compelling, which is what makes The White Stripes one of the greatest bands of modern times”

Elvis Birthday – Elvis Presley Birthday

Elvis fans around the world will celebrate Elvis’s birthday on January 8.In Memphis, fans were able to enjoy four days of celebrations with special birthday events, including an Elvis Birthday Pops Concert, Elvis Insiders Reception and Tour, the Elvis Birthday Proclamation on the front lawn of Graceland.

The Elvis Presley Fan Club will continue its tradition of meeting at the gates of the late Elvis Presley’s Graceland mansion for his birthday celebration. His former wife, Priscilla Presley will participate in this ceremony for the first time this year.

At 7 p.m., the NBA Memphis Grizzlies will host the Elvis Birthday Grizzlies game against the Los Angeles Lakers. The game will include Elvis-themed music and performances with a half-time show featuring the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist of 2007, Shawn Klush.

The legendary singer was born January 8th, 1935, and would have been 73 years old this year. Elvis died at Graceland on August 16, 1977.
1945 – The facts concerning Elvis’s first guitar vary. One account claims Elvis bought a $7.75 guitar from the Tupelo Hardware Company because he wanted to accompany himself when he sang. Elvis paid for part of his 10th birthday present from money he had earned doing odd jobs around the neighborhood. The owner of the store claims that Elvis was more interested in buying a rifle, but that his mother Gladys feared he would shoot someone or himself. Another story tell of Elvis wish for a new bicycle but could not afford the $55.00 to price tag. And Gladys was concerned that her precious 10 year old could injury himself, even though Elvis could be seen driving his parent to church meetings in a rusted-out truck by the time he could reach the pedals. Together with a local teacher and his uncle Vester Presley Elvis learned to play the instrument.

How Elvis celebrate his birthdays throughout his lifetime

1951 – Elvis’ 16th Birthday. Girls were frightened of him because his appearance was so unconventional. Some felt he acted as if he had a nervous disorder while most agreed he had the manners of a hog on heat when Elvis was around the opposite sex.
1953 – Vernon and Gladys paid $50 for a 1952 Lincoln Zephyr coupe which they gave to Elvis on his 18th birthday. With wheels like any other teenager Elvis discovered freedom which scared his mother. Gladys did not know how to drive, so she used the excuse to get Elvis to drive her everywhere.

1954 – Elvis, his mother Gladys and his father Vernon celebrated is birthday singing inspirational songs at their home.

1955 – Elvis performed at the Louisiana Hayride concerts, watched by Hank Williams’s son, Jimmy Rodgers Snow who reported back to Col Parker that Elvis was provocative, sexy and appealed to all women. (sssh, we already knew that)

1956 – Elvis’s 21st birthday was spent on the road going to and from Louisiana Hayride appearances.

1957 – Elvis traveled by train to Hollywood on his 22nd birthday. Scotty Moore, Bill Black & DJ Fontana who co-starred in Loving You, shared a birthday cake that Gladys had baked.

1958 – Elvis was in California to record his Christmas album.

1959 – Dick Clark’s American Bandstand dedicated its program to Elvis 24th birthday. It was the first birthday Elvis ever spent without his mother’s well wishes.

1960 – Rumours had it that United Artists wanted Elvis to play the lead role in West Side Story. The Colonel turned it down because the character dies a brutal death.

1961 – Elvis celebrated his 26th birthday with Hope Lang on the set of Wild In The Country. He was in a foul mood because Col Parker insisted he record the title track from the movie which Elvis thought was a non-singing role.
1962 – On his 27th birthday Dick Clark dedicated his broadcast of American Bandstand to Elvis.

1964 – Elvis did not want to celebrate his 29th birthday as he was upset about the way his flagging movie career and became violent at how the critics were panning his movies.
1965 – Elvis celebrated his 30th birthday quietly at home, thought some newspapers printed the news of his 30th birthday like it was the end of an era. However, two months later Elvis declared in an interview: “I can never forget the longing to be someone. I guess if you are poor you always think bigger and want more than those who have everything.” On that day Elvis signed a 3-picture contract with MGM and there was talk of Elvis starring in BABY THE RAIN MUST FALL. However, Steve McQueen got the lead role of Henry Thomas an ex-con who had a band called the Rockabillies. In the film McQueen remarks, “Maybe I’ll be a big movie star like Elvis Presley…”

1967 – Marty Lacker, Charlie Hodge and the other members of the Memphis Mafia got together and present Elvis with “tree-of-life” medallion for his 32nd birthday which Elvis often wore.

1968 – Just months into his marriage and the honeymoon was over. Elvis just wanted things to stay the same (horsing around with the guys) although his was wed and about to become a father.

1970 – Elvis prepared for his next concert tour throughout the States. Elvis was happy to perform before a live audience again. To-date his most successful concert was at New York, Madison Square Garden

1971 – The day after his 36th birthday Jaycees voted Elvis Ten Outstanding Young Men of America. The tribute brought tears of joy and was the only award Elvis accepted in person. As Priscilla watched on

Okka Magadu Songs Download Mp3

Audio of Balakrishna, Anushka, Nisha Kotari, Simran starring Okka Magadu is released today at Cyber Gardens, Silparamam. The event is attended by Who is Who of the film industry. YVS Chowdary directed and produced this film on Bommarillu banner. Turn out was huge and it became an impossible task for the security. The venue could not accomodate the turn out and this disappointed some fans. An estimate of about 3000 fans came from around the state to see the event. Dasari Narayana Rao, Raghavendra Rao presided over the event as chief guests. SS Rajamouli, Boyapati Srinu, Srinu Vaitla, AS Ravikumar Chowdary, Nandamuri Ramakrishna, Krishna prasad, Ramyakrishna, Anushka, Charmi, Sanghavi, R Narayana Murthy, B Gopal, sagar, C Kalyan, Mani Sharma and others attended the event. Mani Sharma composed music for this film and Supreme Audio company is releasing the music into the market.

Talking during the event, SS Rajamouli said, ‘Even though there were hits and super hits in the film industry, there is no film that shook the box office. That is because the lion is resting now. The lion will roar again on 11th of January (release of Okka Magadu). That roar will prove what collections and shaking the box office means. I wanted to be part of the fans in this event but I was pulled on the stage’. Referring to YVS Chowdary, he said, ‘He is the Okka Magadu (only man) who can make such films. This film will surely be a festival for all the fans. It will surely break all the records’.

Boyapati Srinu added to the words of Rajamouli saying that it will be the songs of Okka Magadu through out Andhra from tomorrow and after 11th Jan, every one will talk about the film only. Srinu Vaitla said that YVS is a die hard fan of NTR. ‘His wish of making a film with NTR is fulfilled this way’.

R.Narayana Murthy is the speaker who created an ignition with the fans. He said the fans should mature from saying Jai Balayya Jai Balayya to “raa Balayya.. Rajakiyalloki raa” (come into Politics Balayya). ‘If the fans insist, he will surely come into politics. And he is the prospective Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh’, said Narayana Murthy.

Ramya Krishna said that she is waiting to watch the film.

Dasari Narayana Rao said, ‘Late NTR is one of the most respected artists of India. And coming from that is Balayya. He alone is capable of films like Okka Magadu. Before this event, Balayya told me a dialog from the film. I can tell you one thing. Fans will go crazy in the theaters for that dialog. All those who are looking to break the nation into pieces on basis of caste and those who are trying to enter politics in the name of caste will feel ashamed with this dialog. There are several dialogs in the film that run that way. As a producer, YVS considers every film to be a penance. As a director, he sculpts it. I am sure the box office records will be rewritten with this film coming in this combination’.

YVS Chowdary said, ‘I am a die hard fan of NTR. I came into movies with pure passion. But my desire to make a film with late NTR would have remained unfulfilled for ever. But with Okka Magadu, that desire is fulfuilled. Some scripts can be done by only particular heroes and this script of Okka Magadu is only tailored for Balayya. If he did not agree to do this project, I would never have attempted it with anyone else.’

Balakrishna remembered the words that late NTR said during a function in Vijayawada referring to the turn out; ‘Nela eeninda.. leka akasam bhoomi paiki valindha’. Balayya then thanked all his fans who came to the event from across the state. Talking about the film, Balayya said, ‘I am two different kind of roles in the film. YVS Chowdary moulded it in his own special way. I dont want to reveal anything more. And also the film has plenty of punch dialogs. Pranalatho chelagatamadevari pranalu theestha.. pranalu pose variki naa pranalaina ista is a dialog from the film. There are plenty of them. Mani Sharma gave excellent music for the film. All of them will be super hits. For all my fans this will turn out to be another festival. Wait is just until 11th January’.

Madonna – New ‘Licorice’ Album

Madonna ‘Licorice’

Released next April, the record will be Madonna’s final album on her current record label Warner Brothers.

Earlier this year the pop star signed a first of its kind all encompassing ten-year deal with tour company Live Nation.

According to reports, Madonna previewed ‘Licorice’ – which features Kanye West and Pharrell Williams – to members of Warner staff earlier this week.

Two tracks from the album, ‘Candy Shop’ and ‘The Beat Goes On,’ have already been leaked online, reports Billboard.

Meanwhile, Madonna’s multi-million dollar deal with Artist Nation, a subsidiary of Live Nation, will see the company control the entire Madonna ‘brand’ – from ticket sales to merchandising revenue.
