Gershwin's compositions spanned both popular and classical genres, and his most popular melodies are widely known. Among his best known works are the orchestral compositions Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris, as well as the opera Porgy and Bess. He’s the richest composer of all time (when you adjust for inflation), so what did he do differently? In The Sunday Times this weekend, you'll find this year's edition of the Rich List - one composer who most certainly would've appeared on it in his day was the great George Gershwin - and this is why: George Gershwin is one of the eternal legends of American music. He was a prolific writer, (some say he wrote up to six songs a day) and his music has been enjoyed by generations of music lovers the world over. His work ethic certainly kept the money flowing in, but it doesn’t quite explain the massive fortune that he accrued in his short life. You see, Gershwin wasn’t just rich, he was filthy rich. He's been ranked in several surveys as the highest grossing composer of all time (adjusted for inflation), streets ahead of Verdi, Rossini, Haydn and even Handel. So what was the magic formula which led to such wealth? Firstly, Gershwin’s music was outrageously popular. In 1919 his first big hit, ‘Swanee’ sold more than 2 million recordings and 1 million copies of sheet music. His folk opera ‘Porgy and Bess’ was also an instant hit, touring non-stop for three years after its initial run.

He put out his first album, Just as I Am, in 1971, which featured the hit "Ain't No Sunshine." More hits soon followed, including "Lean on Me" and "Lovely Day." Withers teamed up with Grover Washington Jr. for the 1981 smash "Just the Two of Us" before retiring from performing later that decade. Early Life and Career Born on July 4, 1938, in Slab Fork, West Virginia, singer-songwriter Bill Withers is known for such hits as "Ain't No Sunshine" and "Lean on Me." He is the youngest of six siblings who grew up in a small coal mining town. As a child, Withers had a terrible stutter, a speech problem that plagued him well into adulthood. Withers lost his father A miner, when he was only 13 years old. Four years later, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served for nine years. Withers moved to Los Angeles, where he started penning songs and making his own demo recordings. He later explained to Billboard that he started writing his own material because "I couldn't find any songs that didn't sound like all the others." To fund his musical efforts, he worked on building toilets for airplanes. His songs eventually attracted the attention of Clarence Avant at Sussex Records, and Withers landed a recording contract with the label... read more [...]
Stevie Wonder Superstition Steelasophical Steel Band Stevie Wonder Superstition Steelasophical Steel Band Stevie Wonder Superstition Steelasophical Steel Band Songs in the Key of Life, like some big Hollywood studio blockbuster, comes to us already weighted down with words, stabbed with exclamation points and wrapped — or is it shrouded? — in great expectations. Two years in the making, the album's imminent release was announced several times, and each time it was withdrawn to be haggled over, reworked, expanded and gossiped about until its release at the end of September. It's nothing if not ambitious: two records plus a four-cut "bonus" EP disc — 21 songs in all — complete with lyric booklet and embarrassingly detailed notes thanking everyone from his mother and father to rack jobbers and stewardesses. The excessive gratitude (including an alphabetical list of over 150 names, from Abdul Jabbar to Frank Zappa) stands in contrast to the production credits, which are typically spare. This is another personal tour de force: Wonder produced, arranged, wrote and composed everything here; he sings all leads and most of the backing tracks as well; and, though a number of stars make cameo appearances, the majority of the cuts list at most four or five other musicians besides Wonder and many list only him. Wonder confronts us virtually single-handedly, grasps our expectations and wrestles them to the ground. I give him four out of five falls gratefully, happily; were it not for his lyrics he might have won them all.

Stevie Wonder AS Steelasophical Steel Band Stevie Wonder AS Steelasophical Steel Band Stevie Wonder AS Steelasophical Steel Band "As" is a song written and performed by Stevie Wonder from his 1976 album, Songs in the Key of Life. It reached #36 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Black Singles chart. The song implies that the love the singer has for his mate will never diminish, as he says that he will love her until the physically impossible becomes true. Stevie Wonder AS Steelasophical Steel Band The impossible feats include: rainbows burning the stars out in the sky, oceans covering the tops of every mountain, dolphins flying, and parrots living at sea, dreaming of life and life becoming a dream, day becoming night and vice versa, trees and the seas flying away, 8×8×8 equaling 4, this day becoming the last day, the Earth turning right to left, the Earth denying itself, Mother Nature saying her work is through, and "until the day that you are me and I am you."

Jaco The Chicken Steelasophical Steel Band Jaco The Chicken Steelasophical Steel Band performed by Gary Trotman SandBanks Hotel Terrace Bar The Chicken is a cool funk tune composed by Pee Wee Ellis, saxophonist and important member of James Brown’s band in the 60s. The song is made famous by Jaco Pastorius, who made it his signature song. Jaco The Chicken Steelasophical Steel Band Jaco The Chicken Steelasophical Steel Band Jaco The Chicken Steelasophical Steel Band Jaco The Chicken Steelasophical Steel Band A 35-year-old performance from the late bass legend Jaco Pastorius is finally receiving its full release on Record Store Day. Jaco Pastorius: Truth, Liberty & Soul was recorded at New York City's Avery Hall in June 1982, and was partially broadcast on NPR, but this is the first time that the full set, featuring Pastorius' Word of Mouth big band and harmonica icon Toots Thielemans, has been made available. "Soul Intro/The Chicken" wouldn't be officially released until the following year on his Invitation album 1987: Jaco’s Final Year Jaco started the year by moving back to Fort Lauderdale with his girlfriend, Teresa. Although he tried to regain stability, the old demons of mental illness reappeared, leading to many strange performances and even short stints in jail. Everything came to its tragic head on in the early morning hours of Sept. 12, 1987, when Jaco went to a bar called the Midnight Bottle Club, where he was ejected for his behaviour. When he tried to kick the door back in, the club’s manager, a third-degree black belt in karate, hit Jaco several times. Jaco’s skull was fractured, and he suffered massive internal bleeding. Jaco never left the hospital. On Sept. 19, he had a brain hemorrhage and went on a respirator. His family decided to remove him from life support on Sept. 21 and he died a little more than three hours later, with Tracy holding his hand. Jaco Pastorius was 35 years old. His assailant pled guilty to manslaughter charges and ultimately only spent four months in prison. Jaco is buried in Our Lady Queen of Heaven Cemetery in North Lauderdale and Jaco Pastorius Park opened in 2008 in Oakland Park. While his legacy lives on there, it’s even more present in the legions of bassists inspired to play the instrument in a new way — or to play it at all — after hearing the work Jaco created during his prolific, but all too short career.

He will be crying, to remember a love that one day he didn't know how to care for. He will be crying, to remember a love that one day he didn't know how to care for. The memory will be with him wherever he goes. The memory will always be there, wherever I go. Dance, sun and sea, and I will keep in mind that love makes one lose and find. I will be dancing the Lambada, to remember a love which for a day, an instant, was king. The memory will be with him wherever he goes. The memory will always be there, wherever I go.

Lambada Steelasophical Steel Band Lambada Steelasophical Steel Band Lambada facts Do you remember the Lambada dance craze of the late 1980s? For those of you too young to recall it, the Lambada is a Brazilian dance for couples, which is generally danced with arched legs, with the steps being from side to side or turning, with a pronounced movement of the hips. At the time when the dance became popular, short skirts for women were in fashion and the dance became associated with the skirts swirling up when the female spins around. The song that launched the Lambada dance craze was this 1989 worldwide hit recorded by the French pop group Kaoma with lead vocals by Paris-based Brazilian Loalwa Braz. It sold over 5 million copies in 1989, reached #1 on eleven [...]

How to Choose Wedding Music for Your Ceremony | Steelasophical How to Choose Wedding Music for Your Ceremony | Steelasophical Do make it ambient Whatever wedding ceremony music you choose, make sure it’s ambient and comfortable for listeners. Consider the volume – you don’t want anything too loud – and make sure the pace is slow and calming. This will help keep your groom relaxed and give you a natural rhythm to match as you walk down the aisle towards him. Prelude Songs The prelude music will play while guests are entering and taking their seats. This music aims to welcome the guests to your wedding, and sets the tone for the rest of the ceremony, so be sure to choose wisely. Whether you prefer classical or more modern music, we recommend choosing tunes that have a romantic and upbeat feel—and yes, you’ll need to choose multiple songs as the prelude will last about 20 to 30 minutes as guests are arriving. A few options to listen to “One Hand, One Heart” by Leonard Bernstein from West Side Story, “Air on a G String”by Bach, and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole.

A few options to listen to “One Hand, One Heart” by Leonard Bernstein from West Side Story, “Air on a G String”by Bach, and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole (this song is particularly nice for an outdoor beach wedding). . Wedding Party Processional Songs This is the music that is played while the wedding party is walking down the aisle. Our rule of thumb here is to choose music that’s neither too fast nor too slow. Select a song that has a rhythm that matches a natural walking pace. A few of our favorites: “Canon in D” by Pachelbel, “A Thousand Years (Instrumental)” by The Piano Guys, and “Ribbon in the Sky” by Stevie Wonder. . Bride’s Processional Songs After the wedding party has taken their places, there is a brief pause before the bride’s entrance. Traditionally, all of the guests stand up and a new song—typically one with a bit more drama—is performed. You can go in a variety of directions with the bridal processional, from something grand and traditional to a song that’s sweet and lively, but just be sure that it matches the magnitude of the moment. A few popular bridal processional songs include: “Air”by Handel, “Here, There, Everywhere” by The Beatles, and “At Last” by Etta James. . Interlude Songs While you don’t have to have interlude music during your ceremony, it may be necessary play music during a particular ritual or [...]
