Piscina Molitor - La vida swing de Boris Vian
Ed. Impedimenta, 2013 | Spanish | CBR | 75 páginas | 42.9 MB
Autores: Christian Cailleaux y Hervé Bourhis

Boris Vian sufrió durante toda su vida de una severa dolencia cardiaca y consideraba que bucear era bueno para su corazón. Sin embargo, el 23 de junio de 1959 Boris Vian muere de un ataque al corazón mientras asiste de incógnito al pase de la adaptación a la pantalla de su novela Escupiré sobre vuestra tumba. Por la mañana había estado nadando en la Piscina Molitor como solía hacer cada día. Hervé Bourhis y Christian Cailleaux narran los últimos momentos de este creador polifacético, sumergiéndose en las profundidades de su vida más allá de sus pasiones, sus amores y sus alegrías. Una vida por la que desfilan personajes secundarios como Jacques Prevert, Yehudi Menuhin, Raymond Queneau, Jean-Paul Sartre, Juliette Greco o Simone de Beauvoir. Details

Miles Davis con Quincy Troupe - Miles. L'autobiografia
Italian | Minimum fax | 2010 | ISBN: 8875216207 | 579 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Dall’epoca d’oro del bebop alla rivoluzione della fusion, la musica di Miles Davis ha attraversato e segnato l’intera storia del jazz. In questo straordinario libro autobiografico Davis racconta l’evoluzione del suo stile, i suoi gruppi, gli album e i concerti, ma anche gli amici, le donne, la famiglia, gli anni bui dell’eroina, i conflitti con i bianchi del mondo della stampa e del potere costituito. Dalla sua voce di volta in volta commossa, indispettita, orgogliosa, nasce un grandioso film corale in cui fanno da co-protagonisti Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, Jimi Hendrix e Prince, e in ruoli cameo troviamo Juliette Greco, Jean-Paul Sartre e addirittura Ronald Reagan. Fitto di aneddoti e informazioni come una grande enciclopedia del jazz, ma animato dal calore di una personalità battagliera, questo libro è una testimonianza fondamentale per la storia della musica, ma insieme un romanzo appassionante e un ritratto «militante» di mezzo secolo di cultura nera americana.

Genre: Drama

This is a rarely seen, moody, melancholy and seriously done time-piece of early sixties' Gay Pur-ee starring wonderful early girlie icon NICO of latter VELVET UNDERGROUND fame. Good b/w cinematography also shows a surprisingly lot of Nico's (and the other strippers) body -for early sixties' standards. If you're a Nico addict, this etherial mélo is a must-see. Watch out for famous chansonniere Juliette Gréco.
