THE SUNDAY CONCERT: JAZZ AT THE PHILARMONIC 1957 OSCAR PETERSON TRIO + ELLA FITZGERALD

Today´s concert is one of World of Jazz (on You Tube) great collection.

A great testament to a  golden time. The full concert of The Oscar Peterson Trio with Ella Fitzgerald, from the ‘Jazz at the Philharmonic’ tour 1957 (this recording is from May 5, 1957) in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, in the Netherlands.

The concert is introduced by Norman Granz himself. First he introduces the Oscar Peterson Trio with Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar and Ray Brown on bass. Later they are joined by Joe Jones on drums and Roy Eldridge on trumpet. Half way the concert Stuff Smith joins on violin. Finally, Ella Fitzgerald joins in, with Don Abney on piano.

Enjoy!

Until next time!

2021 CLASSIC OLD MOVIES IN ENGLISH jazz POP CORN FRIDAYS previous works by the same artist Promoting your Art The Sunday Concert (Jazz) Videos Visual Jazz

POPCORN FRIDAYS: STEINBECK´S THE MOON IS DOWN

WHY POPCORN FRIDAYS

I believe that in times like the present, where the pressures of the pandemic, plus our general economic hardships, added to the lockdowns that still exist around the world, there is nothing better than making a bit of popcorn on a Friday night and watching an old… a very old movie.

It can be in black and white or color, although, I love black and white and mono sound movies. They bring your brain down to a level of simplicity in terms of “processing power”, that is hard to beat.

For a start, the monochrome picture is asking a lot less to decipher from your brain. A full blast color 7 channel surround movie will exacerbate your brain functions so as to deal with all that complex, multi-layered information. A B&W mono sound movie just floats in, and relaxes you, while still being entertaining. On top of that, the stories are from a reality that is not our own in this day and age, so as we watch, it will feel a lot more like one of those stories mom or dad used to read to us before we went to bed.

The end result, is utter satisfaction, relaxation, and the discovery that these stories turn out to have a lot more in common with our lives that we expected, albeit far from the technological wizardry, and imbued in certain innocence that seems so distant from of our contemporary daily lives.

So, I hope you enjoy these popcorn Fridays.

TODAY´S MOVIES

This time is a war time drama. A play by John Steinbeck which became a movie in 1943.

THE MOON IS DOWN by John Steinbeck is a wartime novella about a how occupying German soldiers in Norway learn that peaceful townspeople do not like being told what to do. Taken by surprise, a small coastal town is overrun by an invading army with little resistance. The town is important because it is a port that serves a large coal mine.

It Stars:  Cedric HardwickeHenry TraversLee J. Cobb. The movie was directed by Irvin Pichel. 

Enjoy!

Until next time!

PEERING INTO THE NATURE OF OUR MATHEMATICAL AND GEOMETRICAL UNIVERSE

Mandelbrot is popularly known for two things in particular. Fractals, a description created by him to explain the nature of the sets he had discovered, and the Mandelbrot set. A simple iterated equation based on only sums and multiplications which, with the use of computers given its complexity, we were able to find that it created ever repeating and closely related patterns that could be larger than the whole universe within their own restrictions.

A simple explanation would be that all numbers that exist outside the set are there, but the set within its own boundaries can grow to infinity. I know it is difficult to rap one’s mind around it, but once you see it graphically it all makes sense. Some people have ventured that since there is such a mathematical bases for everything in the Universe, maybe “God’s equation” of creation may look something like the Mandelbrot set.

Leaving aside metaphysical considerations, and for those who have not heard of the set and fractals before, I will try to give you a simple and tasty explanation that may make some basic sense, before we delve into the documentary.

I use this example in class very often to show that things are not necessarily following what we call “obvious patterns”, or “common sense” explanations. It is also a very simple visual tool to show the nature of fractals. Basically it attempts to explain how from a finite object, and without changing most of its basic characteristics or those around it, we can derive into an infinite set.

Basically I take any pound square cake (the use of a cake allows everybody to have a piece at the end! 🙂 ). It weighs a pound, and its length, lets say for argument´s sake, is of 30 cm. We half it and we put one half on top of each the other (we add height but we do not change the total length nor the weight). We half again and put it on top, and so we go on and on. The idea is to graphically show how I could build an infinite cake -in height at least- from a finite one in length (which added will always remain the same if no crumbs were lost) and weight. If I had the right tools, instead of a simple knife, we could go into slices in microns, and even further, as we keep dividing and piling up ad infinitum. That is how we get infinite height from a finite and well defined object.

The documentary I have found, which is a remix someone has made from several documentaries that are available online, will explain in very simple terms the nature of the Mandelbrot Set and fractals. For artists like myself, it is of great interest as it reveals patterns from nature and the Universe that can be replicated as artistic creations, but the set -obviously- goes way beyond such a menial use. In fact it may give us a glimpse of how the universe may be structured.

I hope you see it and enjoy “The Mandelbrot Set”.

Until next time

YOUR NIGHT SKY MAY BE FOR SALE

FIRST PUBLISHED ON PULSE BY LINKEDIN

Since it first visibly emerged on the market, I thought Tesla was a company to watch. And the sporty lotus-based electric car that first appeared at the end of the Bush presidency, really made me pay attention. Until then, a fast and long charge battery operated electric car was almost a dream.

It hit a lot of us in the right spots. And then it’s owner, Elon Musk, got a lot of support from the Obama Administration to help him shake up the automotive industry.

That seems now eons ago, as Musk’s companies are now going into space, and into high speed transport, as well as not only electric cars, but also boats and airplanes.

But amongst this child like love of adventure and new technology that Mr. Musk transmits everywhere, there is also a little feeling, maybe a nagging one, about the fact that he doesn’t seem to be all that interested in some of the byproducts of his adventures. Egos are wonderful things, and success is built on them and, more often than not, it feeds enormous ones.

It is quite clear that battery operated electric cars are the most ecologically friendly solution we have found as yet, in terms of everyday transport, so both he and Tesla are to be thanked for being very helpful to the general planetary environment in that regards. And his batteries and solar panels are definitely great.

But I find extremely annoying, as well as visually polluting, the fact that his 1300 little Starlink satellites that he’s sending into our lower atmosphere to provide wi-fi everywhere (again a great idea) seem to keep popping up more and more into our daily night skies. 

It is true that there is enough junk out there – a major problem in terms of space pollution- to make this 1300 Wi-Fi providing satellites just a spec in a sea of space debris. Now, unlike Starlink, all that debris cannot be seen by the naked eye.

These orbiters are quite the opposite. Furthermore, they are supposed to be seen, partially allowing us to marvel at the technology, but also as a marketing exercise, leaving us wondering why we have to be forced to see how a commercial enterprise changes our view of the Earth’s sky forever.

These satellites are plainly visible, and as they grow into bigger and bigger sets, they will be crisscrossing our night sky more and more. In fact, it is plainly obvious that sooner or later, other companies will start doing the same, thus changing our night views, and our nights, forever.

That is why I believe that it may be a good idea to start raising our voices if we feel that this is not acceptable to us. I understand that the sky seems to be nobody´s, but it’s actually everybody’s.

Furthermore, it may be time for some internationally sponsored regulations on the subject -sooner rather than later- on a worldwide scale. That is if we wish to avoid the unchecked pollution of our planetary orbits, and the making of our night sky into just another branding exercise for those who can afford it. And as long as we are there, we may revisit the need to start cleaning up what we can´t see from here, but which is so dense already that it presents a problem -for example- for a future Mars Mission, since it will have to go so much debris that is may damage a spaceship.

So, what do you think? Do we need to start doing something about it? I would love to hear your thoughts about this. Go ahead, make your comments known.

Until next time.

IA
