This book offers a comprehensive workshop in blues violin and specifically addresses improvisation techniques through exercises and ear training studies that relate to the various licks and scales. Original tunes by the author address various technical challenges, and old blues standards are included to build an authentic blues repertoire. the book next touches on the influence of the blues on swing, bluegrass, Cajun and Gypsy styles while teaching improvisational techniques in each. We next pay tribute to the great Blues violinists of the past and present with bios and some photos. Finally, ways to develop and vary breaks are explored. the text touches on many aspects of violin techniques as it relates to the blues and has an easygoing and at times, humorous appeal. the book begins at a moderate beginning level but quickly moves to intermediate material; toward the end, we get into fairly advanced territory. Both violinists who have been playing a couple of years and serious classical players can benefit from Getting Into Blues Violin.

Mixing It Up

I don't know where August got his blues from. He says he listened to records. You can listen to all the records you wish, but that doesn't guarantee you'll be successful in getting the blues down on paper.

In this latest collection of essays, culled from the pages of the New York Times, Playboy, CounterPunch, and elsewhere, MacArthur fellow Ishmael Reed is at his most probing and fearless. Reed tackles subjects ranging from Oakland, eugenics, and domestic violence to the way gentrification is causing us to lose Black Harlem; and from the media portrayals of Michael Jackson and Kobe Bryant to a profile of legendary jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins. The collection also includes his landmark essay in the Baltimore Sun, in which he was the first writer to label Bill Clinton a ''black'' president. In this important and stunning collection, one of America's most forceful and ever-surprising commentators paints a complex portrait of the media and its place in American culture.

The journey to parenthood is different for everyone, but the struggles of pregnancy, childbirth and the first year of a baby’s life are almost universal. As parents (or future parents), we are constantly fed a myth that being a Mommy or Daddy is a wonderful, amazing and completely fulfilling experience. We are expected to raise our children effortlessly, love every minute of being a parent and post the pictures on social media to prove it. We feel guilty if we do not like a certain aspect of this experience and we are shamed if someone doesn’t agree with our decisions. Parents, it is time to stop the insanity. Creating, growing, birthing and raising a child is really hard! I know this because I am a Mom of two strong-willed children and a pediatrician with over a decade of experience in the medical field. I understand that you are inundated with information from family members, friends, and the media who all tell you what you should do, and what you should not do, for yourself and for your child. This information is often conflicting and confusing. You know what? I Got You, Mama. Take a deep breath and hang with me. This book is a no holds barred approach with information that is real, raw, and sometimes gross! But... I promise it will help you to unapologetically thrive as a parent.

One of the few books of its kind, Acting Up and Getting Down brings together seven African American literary voices that all have a connection to the Lone Star state. Covering Texas themes and universal ones, this collection showcases often-overlooked literary talents to bring to life inspiring facets of black theatre history. Capturing the intensity of racial violence in Texas, from the Battle of San Jacinto to a World War I–era riot at a Houston training ground, Celeste Bedford Walker's Camp Logan and Ted Shine's Ancestors provide fascinating narratives through the lens of history. Thomas Meloncon's Johnny B. Goode and George Hawkins's Br'er Rabbit explore the cultural legacies of blues music and folktales. Three unflinching dramas (Sterling Houston's Driving Wheel, Eugene Lee's Killingsworth, and Elizabeth Brown-Guillory's When the Ancestors Call) examine homosexuality, a death in the family, and child abuse, bringing to light the private tensions of intersections between the individual and the community. Supplemented by a chronology of black literary milestones as well as a playwrights' canon, Acting Up and Getting Down puts the spotlight on creative achievements that have for too long been excluded from Texas letters. The resulting anthology not only provides new insight into a regional experience but also completes the American story as told onstage.
