Blind Boys of Alabama performs at Preservation Hall in NO
They may be from Alabama but they've been spending time in the Crescent City. Four-time Grammy winners The Blind Boys of Alabama's new album 'Down In New Orleans,' their first in three years, will be released January 29, 2008 on the Time Life Music label. Recording for the first time in New Orleans, The Blind Boys are backed here by a trio of world-class New Orleans musicians: David Torkanowsky (piano), Roland Guerin (bass) and Shannon Powell (drums). Other guests include legendary pianist/producer and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Allen Toussaint, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and the horn-heavy Hot 8 Brass Band, one of the city's most vital young acts. But the band's deeply soulful and natural voices remain in the spotlight on 'Down In Orleans.' After performing together for over six decades, The Blind Boys of Alabama have enjoyed one of the more striking comebacks in recent memory. Their last several albums have earned these hipster septuagenarians the best reviews and record sales of their career, four Grammy Awards in a four year span, and a completely new, contemporary audience.
How the NBA’s Cleveland Cavs Changed the Game for Their Autistic Fans
The squeak of sneakers, the pounding of the ball on the hardwood floor, flashing lights, videos and messages on the scoreboard, dancers, PA Announcements, the roar of the crowd…. A professional basketball game is frantic, loud, and a lot to take in all at once for anyone. But it can also be overwhelming, especially if you have the sensory issues associated with autism.
Amy and Jeff Belles thought long and hard about whether it would be a good idea to take their son Carson, who is autistic, to a Cleveland Cavaliers basketball game at Quicken Loans Arena. Then the “Q Center” offered an Autism Awareness Night, and they thought that this would be the perfect opportunity for him to see a game.
Much to their dismay, the experience was not a good one. Carson was mistreated by Q Center Staff, taking a personal item from him as he tried to make his way through security. Amy and Jeff were told to “get their son under control,” and were stunned by the lack of sensitivity. The experience was so traumatic that Amy and Jeff decided to take to Twitter to explain the mistreatment they received. When hearing their story, senior vice president of facility operations, Antony Bonovita, knew something had to be done. He reached out to Amy and Jeff who urged him to train his staff on what it means to be inclusive to people with autism.
Anthony, having a son of his own with autism, took their feedback to heart. “It was not enough just to say we will train people,” he explained. “We could institute a sensory program, we could build a sensory room. We can do more because it’s the right thing to do.” He engaged with Kulture City, a nonprofit based in Birmingham, Alabama, that had already developed sensory inclusion training and brought it into the “Q”. He also included Jeff and Amy to help create the program and take it to another level.
See how Sensory Rooms and other materials now available at The Q have made it possible for those with autism, PTSD, and other sensory conditions to enjoy an experience in their facility. “Who doesn’t want to be in a room with Bubble Walls and art you can squeeze?” Antony raves. “It’s a great place to come and chill out! My son, your child, gets to come to a game now. I get to go home and smile about that.”

James Brown Live at The Apollo '68
Subscribe to James Brown:
This was one of a series of concerts James Brown gave at the Apollo in Harlem in March 1968. This performance was broadcast on television as James Brown: Man To Man.
In addition to 16 vintage color performances from the concert, this special also includes film of James Brown walking the streets of Harlem and Watts as he speaks to the state of Black America and describes the political and socioeconomic advances that need to be accomplished:
“My flight is for Black American to become American.”—James Brown
This concert is much a 1968 James Brown time capsule as it is a timeless representation of how music can change the world.

Jean Goldkette - Proud Of A Baby Like You, 1927
Jean Goldkette & His Orch., Vocal refrain Keller Sisters and Lynch - Proud Of A Baby Like You, Victor 1927
NOTE: Jean GOLDKETTE (1893-1962) led one of the most successful jazz orchestras of the late 1920s. Born in Patras, Greece to a family of traveling performers, Goldkette spent his early years in Greece and Russia before immigrating to the United States around 1910. Though a talented and classically trained pianist he was first and foremost a businessman. In 1924 Goldkette decided to put together a top-notch jazz outfit that could rival the popularity of Paul Whiteman's orchestra. Famous names featured at various times in Goldkette's banner group included Eddie Lang, Joe Venuti, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey. The band came to fame in 1926 when trumpeter Bix Beiderbecke and saxophonist Frankie Trumbauer joined. Vocalists included the Keller Sisters and Lynch - excellent vocal group consisted of Annie Catherine Nan Keller (1900-1975), Kathryne Ann Taddy Keller (1909-1962) and Frank Lynch (1902-1992). They were actually all siblings born with the family name Lynch. They recorded many significant sides for Victor. Goldkette himself did not perform in any group which bore his name. In 1928, one of his contract groups, the Orange Blossoms, broke from him to become the Casa Loma Orchestra. Financial problems caused by high musician salaries forced Goldkette to disband his all-star orchestra, though he continued to record under its moniker with a new line-up until 1929. Most of his former stars ended up joining Whiteman. Goldkette continued to work as a booking agent into the 1930s but had given up all his bands by 1930, deciding to pursue a career in classical music instead. Jean Goldkette passed away in 1962.

Howlin’ Bones - Hanna Aldridge
Americana is the perfect concoction of American roots music that comprises our musical ethos as we know it today. It is something so engrained in our history, folklore, tradition, and mythology that it is not as simple as just becoming Americana, but rather, it is something that you are born into. It's that old cast-iron Coca-Cola sign that's been in your neighbor's shed for 50 years, a banjo and a Fender telecaster playing together, a 1955 Chevy with a modern stereo.
There are few artists that can truly encapsulate the essence and true range of Americana like Muscle Shoals artist Hannah Aldridge, whose musical pedigree precedes her and speaks for itself.
Hannah Aldridge is the daughter of Alabama Music Hall of Famer Walt Aldridge, who is one of the most prolific songwriters of the modern musical era. Twice named by Billboard magazine as one of the Top Country Songwriters of the year, ASCAP Songwriter of the Year, and countless Number One and Top Ten hits recorded by the likes of Lou Reed, Reba McEntire, Travis Tritt, Earl Thomas Conley, Ricky Van Shelton, Ronnie Milsap, and Conway Twitty.
With sounds ranging from blues in the Mississippi Delta to the dusty, Dixieland jazz sounds from New Orleans, the musical styling’s of Muscle Shoals on up to the primitive roots of American Country music, Hannah Aldridge leaves no inspiration or influence untapped.
I think people have forgotten what real drums and real voices sound like. We have been so overexposed to these pre-packaged #1 hits that when there is anything that has any glimpse of truth or rawness to it, it is like a fresh breath of air. Americana music really is lyrically driven and is meant to make people think, which is the total opposite of most of the stuff out there on the radio, so I think that naturally people are being drawn towards it. says Aldridge.
Besides being a seasoned staff songwriter for BAR Music with song placements in television shows like Hart of Dixie(CW) and recognition from American Songwriter as well as Relix Magazine, her vocal talents rarely go unrecognized, something that lends itself to being true to the Americana methodology of not using excessive talent-enhancing techniques in the studio or live. Both her natural and cultivated talent help her to emote with both listeners and musicians alike on a truly organic level.
Seasoned by both life events and musical events since the release of her first EP, Wanderer in 2011, Hannah's upcoming release Razor Wire shows a stark difference of growth in musical sensibility, writing, and maturity.
Hannah has toured all across the United States and Europe gaining a grassroots movement of fans that wait in silent adoration of the return of their Americana Heir Apparent Princess of Muscle Shoals.
Neil Leslie Diamond (born January 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter with a career that began in the 1960s.

Neil Diamond was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1984 and into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. Additionally, he received the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000 and in 2011 was an honoree at Kennedy Center. On the Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary charts, he has had ten No.1 singles: Cracklin' Rosie, Song Sung Blue, Longfellow Serenade, I've Been This Way Before, If You Know What I Mean, Desiree, You Don't Bring Me Flowers, America, Yesterday's Songs, Heartlight and I'm a Believer. He continues to record and release new material and maintains an extensive touring schedule as well.

Talking About Dan Dierdorf
President Barack Obama spoke about the economy at a rally in Austin Thursday. After some hecklers bo
Austin, Texas - July 10, 2014
1. SOUNDBITE (English) President Barack Obama:
So as a whole the country is doing better. The problem is that so much of the improved productivity and profits have gone to the folks at the very top and the average person, their wages and incomes haven't really gone up at all.
++SOUNDBITES SEPARATEDD BY SECOND OF BLACK++
2. SOUNDBITE (English) President Barack Obama:
We're fighting for an opportunity agenda that makes sure your hard work pays off with higher wages and equal pay for equal work and work place flexibility and overtime pay that you've earned. We're fighting for opportunity for all and the idea that no matter who you are, and what you look like, where you come from, and who you love. If you work hard in America, if you work hard in Austin, if you work hard in Texas, you can make it here. You can make it.
++SOUNDBITES SEPARATEDD BY SECOND OF BLACK++
3. SOUNDBITE (English) President Barack Obama:
I.. on immigration issues we've got.. And to their credit there are Republicans in the senate who actually worked with Democrats, passed a bill which strengthened the borders, which would you know help make the system more fair and more just. But the house republicans they haven't even called the bill, they won't even take a vote on the bill. They don't have enough energy or organization or I don't know what to just even vote no on the bill and then they're mad at me for trying to do some things to make the immigration system work better so it doesn't make sense. So I'm sorry what're you yelling about now. They.. Sit down guys I'm almost done.. come on.. cit down.. I'll talk to you afterwards I promise alright. I'll bring you back. I'm wrapping things up there, I understand so see these.. Everybody is going to start sit down guys.. I'm on your side man.. Sit down we'll talk about it later, I promise alright. So look here's what we could do, we could do so much more. No you don't have to escort them out. They'll sit down I promise I'll talk to you afterwards. We could do so much more if Republicans and Congress would focus less on stacking the deck for those on the top and focus more on creating opportunity for everybody and I want to work with them. I don't expect them to agree with me on everything but at least agree with me on the things you use to say you were for before I was for them.
