In the CLEVELAND area?
Don't forget to stop by the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Woodmere's Eton Square on Chagrin Blvd., tomorrow December 1st and join me for a fun time of browsing, shopping, kibitzing and hearing poetry . . A great group of poets reading between 1:00pm and 5:00pm (see flyer). Can't come by? There is info on the flyer for electronic purchase. Buy something with vouchers (PRINT pic two) and Heights Writes gets a percentage of your purchase. Heights Writes supports the Poet Laureate of Cleveland Heights which is a two year post and other artistic educational endeavors. My term ends in June. It is also Educators' Day at Barnes & Nobles and educators get discounts. NEED MORE INFO? CALL B&N ((216) 765-7520) There are very nice restaurants and shops in Eton Square and in the area from moderate to expensive, I here tell some folks will be smoking cigars across the street at Cousins afterward... could be just a rumor ;-)

The 17-year-old Sissle enrolled in Central High School where he played on the baseball and football teams, sang in the school glee club, and became one of Cleveland's first civil rights activists."

Excerpt from the film "That's The Spirit" with the Noble Sissle band, including Buster Bailey (clarinet), Wilbur de Paris (trombone), Edward Coles (tuba) and Jack Carter (drums and vocal) playing "St. Louis Blues"Jack Carter (drums and vocal) playing "St. Louis Blues"

Pussy Riot's jailing: the full story | Dummy » Features

Pussy Riot's jailing: the full story | Dummy » Features | Jazz, other music, spoken word | Scoop.it

As three members of the Russian anti-Putin feminist punk band are sentenced to jail. In English and American music-writing circles, there has been a good deal of hand-wringing over the apparent death of music as an overt political force, and the demise of the transgressive pop band. Here, then, is a reminder that musicians are more than capable of acting as thorns in the side of power. And that, as long as dull, sad regimes are intent on martyring their people, thank God some can make a damn loud racket.

Good morning Cav,

Who are the musicians in America today who are the moral/political equivalent of Woody Guthrie and his teachers and peers who infuse their music with an overt political message?

Do all you can to make today a good day,

Jeff

In Cleveland's 'second downtown,' jazz once filled the air

In Cleveland's 'second downtown,' jazz once filled the air | Jazz, other music, spoken word | Scoop.it

By Evelyn Theiss, The Plain Dealer

 

"Cleveland was an epicenter of jazz from the 1920s through the first part of the 1960s, and it was all happening in Doan's Corners, known as Cleveland's "second downtown." Today we call the area University Circle."
