The Last Blues Preacher by Zach Mills Summary

Born in 1925 into a life of sharecropping in Brownsville, Tennessee, Clay Evans was desperate to escape life working for the descendants of plantation owners. At night, he listened to jazz musicians like Cab Calloway and Guy Lombardo on the radio and imagined one day singing on a secular stage. But a greater calling drew Evans into ministry, and he soon stood upon a unique stage as one of America's most famous gospel singers, civil rights heroes, and the godfather of Chicago's black preachers. From this stage Clay sought to rescue his family from poverty and inspire a city and a nation to see, hear, and witness the dignity and value of black lives. Zach Mills's lively and powerful biography, The Last Blues Preacher, brings the life and work of Reverend Evans into our time and examines how current national conversations on race, religion, politics, and popular culture can and should inform contemporary activism.

Give My Poor Heart Ease by William Ferris Summary

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, folklorist William Ferris toured his home state of Mississippi, documenting the voices of African Americans as they spoke about and performed the diverse musical traditions that form the authentic roots of the blues. Now, Give My Poor Heart Ease puts front and center a searing selection of the artistically and emotionally rich voices from this invaluable documentary record. Illustrated with Ferris's photographs of the musicians and their communities and including a CD of original music, the book features more than twenty interviews relating frank, dramatic, and engaging narratives about black life and blues music in the heart of the American South. Here are the stories of artists who have long memories and speak eloquently about their lives, blues musicians who represent a wide range of musical traditions--from one-strand instruments, bottle-blowing, and banjo to spirituals, hymns, and prison work chants. Celebrities such as B. B. King and Willie Dixon, along with performers known best in their neighborhoods, express the full range of human and artistic experience--joyful and gritty, raw and painful. In an autobiographical introduction, Ferris reflects on how he fell in love with the vibrant musical culture that was all around him but was considered off limits to a white Mississippian during a troubled era. This magnificent volume illuminates blues music, the broader African American experience, and indeed the history and culture of America itself.

Great God A'Mighty! The Dixie Hummingbirds by Jerry Zolten Summary

From the Jim Crow world of 1920s Greenville, South Carolina, to Greenwich Village's Caf? Society in the '40s, to their 1974 Grammy-winning collaboration on "Loves Me Like a Rock," the Dixie Hummingbirds have been one of gospel's most durable and inspiring groups. Now, Jerry Zolten tells the Hummingbirds' fascinating story and with it the story of a changing music industry and a changing nation. When James Davis and his high-school friends starting singing together in a rural South Carolina church they could not have foreseen the road that was about to unfold before them. They began a ten-year jaunt of "wildcatting," traveling from town to town, working local radio stations, schools, and churches, struggling to make a name for themselves. By 1939 the a cappella singers were recording their four-part harmony spirituals on the prestigious Decca label. By 1942 they had moved north to Philadelphia and then New York where, backed by Lester Young's band, they regularly brought the house down at the city's first integrated nightclub, Caf? Society. From there the group rode a wave of popularity that would propel them to nation-wide tours, major record contracts, collaborations with Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon, and a career still vibrant today as they approach their seventy-fifth anniversary. Drawing generously on interviews with Hank Ballard, Otis Williams, and other artists who worked with the Hummingbirds, as well as with members James Davis, Ira Tucker, Howard Carroll, and many others, The Dixie Hummingbirds brings vividly to life the growth of a gospel group and of gospel music itself.

Mick Jagger by Philip NORMAN Summary

De ses débuts à aujourd'hui, l'odyssée de Sir Mick Jagger, la plus légendaire figure de rockstar de tous les temps. Qu'y-a-t-il derrière le produit Mick Jagger ? Qui est véritablement cet homme de soixante-dix ans qui, aujourd'hui encore, s'agite le nombril à l'air avec la même souplesse et la même conviction qu'à ses tout débuts, lorsqu'il chantait : " I Can't Get No Satisfaction " ? Tout le monde connaît les premiers pas des Rolling Stones et les grandes étapes, dont la rencontre originelle avec Keith Richards en 1961, puis avec Brian Jones et les autres membres du groupe, puis encore l'irrésistible ascension, les tubes et les délirantes tournées américaines, les provocations sexuelles et les scandales à répétition – la consommation de drogues, le séjour en 1967 à la prison de Brixton, les trois morts du festival d'Altamont, l'exil fiscal, les mariages, les aventures et les divorces, etc. Lorsque la mythologie s'en mêle, il devient toutefois difficile de percer à jour le mystère Jagger. Mystère qui confine au paradoxe : comment expliquer qu'un personnage aussi brillant demeure, interview après interview, incapable de se livrer a minima ? D'échapper, malgré son aura rebelle, à une étonnante neutralité ? Comment se fait-il qu'après avoir passé toute sa vie sur scène, à fasciner des centaines de milliers de personnes, il dise n'avoir gardé aucun souvenir pour écrire l'autobiographie qui lui fut commandée en 1983 et dont le manuscrit se révéla, à la lecture, " mortellement ennuyeux " ? Autant de questions auxquelles Philip Norman apporte des éléments de réponse dans une véritable enquête, passionnante, grâce aux témoignages de tous ceux qui, compagnons de route ou compagnes de vie, ont approché au plus près le chanteur des Stones. Selon lui, le secret de Jagger, et le secret de sa longévité à toute épreuve, c'est son égoïsme sans nostalgie qui le pousse, en toute circonstance, à évaluer ce qui est bon pour lui – et pour sa carrière. Un instinct hors du commun. Et, retraçant pas à pas le parcours de ce jeune garçon devenu pour toujours l'incarnation de la rockstar, il nous fait revisiter cinquante ans de rock, de révolte, de conquête, de mode, de rythme et de passion.

Les Cris du Mississippi by Ace Atkins Summary

Quinn Colson, ranger vétéran d’Irak et d’Afghanistan, est le nouveau shérif du comté de Tibbehah, dans le nord du Mississippi. Il est chargé d’enquêter sur un cas de maltraitance d’enfant. Quand il arrive sur la propriété de Janet et Ramón Torres, les tuteurs, il découvre une scène qui dépasse l’entendement : une horde de chiens galeux attachés dans des cages souillées, treize couffins vides, des tas de détritus qui jonchent le sol de la maison décrépie, et surtout une boîte en carton pleine de dollars. Il est sûr que les Torres vont revenir pour récupérer leur trésor. Pendant ce temps-là, la sœur de Colson est rentrée au bercail, sobre et clean – d’après elle. Quant à son meilleur ami, Boom, le vétéran qui a laissé un bras à Fallujah, il s’abîme dans l’alcool et les bagarres pour oublier la guerre. Mais Quinn a d’autres chats à fouetter. Son second, Lillie Virgil, et lui-même subodorent que le couple Torres a un goût particulier pour les trafics en tout genre : armes, drogues, enfants. Il semble qu’il y ait un lien entre eux et un cartel de la drogue qui contrôle le plus gros de la frontière texane. Traduit de l'anglais (Etats-Unis) par Jean Esch

La colline du mauvais conseil by Amos Oz Summary

1947. La Palestine est encore sous mandat britannique. Sur la colline du Mauvais-Conseil, à Jérusalem, se dresse comme une menace le palais du haut-commissaire anglais. Et sur cette terre enfin atteinte, les Juifs du Retour attendent toujours, dans la révolte ou l’espérance, que viennent la joie, la lumière et la liberté. Trois récits intimement liés expriment, à travers les expériences de plusieurs personnages qui sont autant de facettes d’un même destin, la difficulté d’être permanente d’un peuple. Il y a le candide vétérinaire Kipnis, dont la femme choisit de fuir vers une existence facile avec un lord ; le tout jeune Uri, qui ne rêve que de bouter l’Anglais hors d’Israël, mais verra – sans doute – son désir concrétisé par un mystérieux visiteur aperçu chez ses parents ; il y a enfin le docteur Nissembaum qu’un mal incurable ronge et qui revoit avec nostalgie sa vie et ses amours tandis qu’il est le témoin des luttes de son quartier contre « l’occupant ». Spectateurs ou acteurs de ces événements, ce sont des enfants – dont l’avenir se joue alors – qui donnent à ces trois textes leur unité et leur sens profond. Dans une magnifique langue poétique et musicale, Amos Oz se fait, une fois encore, le porte-parole de la contestation et de l’espoir en Israël.
