For nearly thirty years Nichelle Nichols has been part of the Star Trek mythos.As Lieutenant Uhura,communications officer of the Starship Enterprise, she was the first African-American woman to have a major continuing role on television.Her candid and insightful autobiography takes readers on her life's voyage of personal discovery and professional triumph - beyond Uhura. Granddaughter of the rebellious son of a slave owner, Nichols grew up in a socially progressive family.By the age of sixteen the young singer-dancer had already been praised by Josephine Baker and had worked with Duke Ellington.With tenacity and talent, she established herself as a first-rate performer in nightclubs, onstage and eventually in film. From the beginning of her Hollywood career, some would say, she had two strikes against her:she was Black and she was a woman.In the face of racism, a brush with the mob, andan attempted rape, she fought courageously against the injustices that stood between her and her dreams.Through an early job on television - years before Star Trek - Nichols met Gene Rodenberry.Describing her pivotal role in the Star Trek universe, she takes readers where no book has gone before;into the heart and mind of this man, the series' creator, for a time her lover and afterward her friend.She also reveals the true story behind the scenes with the Star Trek family, and details the evolution of the Trekker phenomenon with humour, affection and respect.A symbol of hope and promise for millions of viewers, Nichols continues to work toward the same goals Lieutenant Uhura and, indeed, all of Star Trek embody.Whether spearheading a national recruitment drive to bring minorities and women into the NASA astronaut corps, or producing space-oriented educational films and programs for young people, Nichols remains devoted to inspiring a sense of wonder and promise for human-kind's real-life future among the stars.Her autobiography is a moving testament to the indomitability of the human spirit.

Paperback. New. Paperback. 184 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 5.9in. x 0.6in.As a cultural critic, biographer, essayist, and novelist, Albert Murray has had a wide-ranging and profound influence on American art in the decades since the Second World War. Artists as diverse as Walker Percy, Romare Bearden, and Wynton Marsalis have drawn from Murray and his ideas on jazz and the blues, modern consciousness, and the role of race in the American identity. His own works include The Hero and the Blues, Train Whistle Guitar, Good Morning Blues: The Autobiography of Count Basie as Told to Albert Murray, The Spyglass Tree, The Blue Devils of Nada, and The Seven League Boots. Yet this is the first book devoted to Murray himself, and fittingly it is based on the kind of conversations that have proven indispensable to his friends in the arts. It brings together twenty interviews with Murray conducted over the last twenty-four years, beginning with an interview that took place shortly after his second book, South to a Very Old Place, was published, and ending with a previously unpublished interview with the editor. In these conversations Murray discusses those who influenced him - Thomas Mann, Ernest Hemingway, Louis Armstrong, and Duke Ellington - and tells how they helped him develop a philosophy of art based on the blues as well as a new archetype of the American hero, the blues hero. The collection reveals a man who enjoys a good time and a good conversation and whose intellectual improvisations move over such subjects as his reminiscences about the South he grew up in, his insights about regional culture, and commentaries about the contemporary American scene. He is quick to laugh, to conspire, to correct misperceptions, to mimic the sounds a great jazz musician makes, or to recite lines from favorite poems or novels. Taken together, these interviews reveal Murray to be the composite American he describes in his first book, The Omni-Americans, which, when published in 1970, announced a new and important literary voice.

"The autobiography of jazz genius, John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie, a man known internationally as an ambassador of American Entertainment, a trumpet player whose style changed for good that instrument's capabilities, and a musician whose contribution to the music called "Bebop" makes him a founding father of modern jazz. It is an autobiography that blends Dizzy's own story with the words of those who have known him through the years - from his childhood in South Carolina, to the Big Band days, to the ferment of Bebop, to the Afro-Cuban synthesis, to the present [at time of publication]. Al Fraser has interviewed many of those who made music with Dizzy - Miles Davis; Billy Eckstine; Cab Calloway; Mary Lou Williams; and Kenny Clarke are just a few. An, in return, Dizzy has discussed his relationship with many of the musical personalities of that time - Louis Armstrong; Duke Ellington; Stan Kenton; and the legendary Charlie Parker. What enfolds is a self-portrait by a man with a single-minded devotion to music, undiminished optimism about the future of the planet, and an irreverent sense of fun. The statement of a musical pioneer, TO BE OR NOT TO BOP is also an oral history of black American music during one of its greatest periods of fire and fun." RARE/SCARCE TITLE. STATED FIRST EDITION. Will ship from United States., Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1979, Oxford University Press. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 352 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.4in. x 1.2in.Duke Ellington is considered to be one of the great genius of jazz--its major composer and leader of probably the most significant of all jazz bands. Yet, other than his own not-very-revealing autobiography and a collection of reminiscences of his band members, there has never been an indepth biography of this preeminent figure in twentieth century music and entertainment. Here at last is the definitive critical biography of both the man and his music. James Lincoln Collier, author of the highly acclaimed Louis Armstrong: An American Genius, has produced a fascinating work which tells the full story of Edward Kennedy Ellington, from his childhood as the pampered and adored only son of a middle-class Washington black family to his death in 1974, hailed as Americas greatest composer (according to the New York Times obituary) and mourned at his funeral by more than 10, 000 people. Collier describes Ellingtons charisma--his sense of being special even from childhood, when he would announce to his cousins I am the grand, noble, Duke; crowds will be running to me, . . . the formation of his band, including some of the greatest names in jazz history, among them, Barney Bigard, Johnny Hodges, Cootie Williams, Lawrence Brown, and Paul Gonzavles. . . his arrival at the legendary Cotton Club in Harlem in the 1920s. . . his involvement with his manager Irving Mills, who manipulated and cheated him and even put his name on some of Ellingtons songs, but who made him famous. . . his relationship with his family, including his troubled relationship with his son, his marriage and many affairs (including involvements with some of his own musicians women). But most of all, the book is about the creation of the music, from classic songs like Sophisticated Lady to the sacred concerts of Ellingtons last years. Collier maintains that it is not necessary to see Ellington as a composer in the narrow sense of the word but as something just as important: an improvising jazz musician. His instrument was a whole band. This is a controversial book--not all will agree with Colliers assessments--but it will enthrall jazz buffs as well as anyone interested in a fascinating life and times.

The current work on instrumentalists is divided into several parts. The main section is an alphabetized list of individual artists with their birth and death dates and related bibliographic citations. There is also an index and four appendixes that provide handy cross-references to all sections, and there are two lists of books about performers. Cowdens selected virtuosi include players of the basic woodwinds and brasses, strings, organ, percussion, piano, and less common instruments such as harmonica and JeWs harp. . . . A useful addition to almost any library. ChoiceWith Instrumental Virtuosi, Robert Cowden has completed his comprehensive three volume bibliography of musical performers.

Title:

Instrumental Virtuosi: A Bibliography of Biographical Materials

ISBN:

9780313260759

?With this volume Cowden has completed his project of three bibliographies about performers. His previous books, also published by Greenwood, are Concert and Opera Singers and Concert and Opera Conductors. The current work on instrumentalists is divided into several parts. The main section is an alphabetized list of individual artists with their birth and death dates and related bibliographic citations. There is also an index and four appendixes that provide handy cross-references to all sections, and there are two lists of books about performers. Cowden's selected virtuosi include players of the basic woodwinds and brasses, strings, organ, percussion, piano, and less common instruments such as harmonica and Jew's harp. The title, however, does not indicate the full scope of the contents, and some potential users may be surprised to discover that pop and jazz musicians constitute a hefty portion of the instrumentalists . . . a useful addition to almost any library.?-Choice
