“Trombone Shorty” is a 2016 Caldacott Honor book and a champion of the Coretta Scott King award. In this auto-biography, the author, Troy Andrews, tells his story of how he came to be the popular Trombone Shorty. This book truly belongs in the hands of all kids as it is a attractive story of how a young boy who comes from meager means, discovers not only his love of melody but also a trombone that would change his life. The huge idea of this story is to present that when you keep on to what you love at all costs, amazing things can happen. This story is steeped in rich Fresh Orleans culture as Troy Andrews begins his story with a traditional Fresh Orleans, ‘hello’ by saying ‘where Y’at?’ on the first page and throughout the entire story. He credits his town and his older brother with igniting his passion for music. In the beginning of the story, Andrews says that he and his mates would watch his older brother’s jazz band and they would pretend to play along. One day, at only six years of age, Troy found a trombone in severe disrepair, but he that did not stop him from trying to fix it and play it. The trombone was bigger than he was which is how he got the nickname Trombone Shorty. One day his mother brought him to the Jazz Festival to see the popular jazz musician, Bo Diddley. Troy brought his trombone to play along to the music. As Bo Diddley was playing on stage, he stopped the present to ask who was playing in the crowd. Small Troy Andrews was passed across the crowd to the scene where he played along with the band. This proved to be only the first of many, a lot of concerts and a lifelong career in music. Bryan Collier, who also illustrated Uptown and I, Too, Am America, has a very special illustration style which pairs well with the uniqueness of the story. He uses a surprising combination of watercolor and collage and begins every project by having his mates and family act out scenes of the story to inspire him. The collage pictures seem to hold the story grounded in reality which adds an interesting complexity to the feel of the autobiography. I especially enjoyed the pictures of Troy Andrews as a young kid playing the trombone where Collier shows the melody spiraling out of the trombone making the melody appear as if it is its own hero in the book. This book is filled with info from cover to cover. Even the jacket is loaded with info on Trombone Shorty and Bryan Collier. The only drawback is that occasionally the text is set too close to the gutter and as a effect becomes difficult to read. The author’s main goal is to present the reader that it is not how you begin but how you finish. He encourages kids to pursue their dreams and he captures the tradition and flavor of Fresh Orleans perfectly. I believe the author does a amazing job encouraging kids to work hard to achieve their goals. I especially like how the story is about a young black boy but, it does not mention civil rights or slavery. It is simply a amazing story with a young black boy as the main character. As a result, I believe more young African American kids will be able to identify with this story and it may have a greater result on them. This book is geared toward kids in grades one through four however, kids of all ages will have fun it. I would certainly recommend this book to a lot of various grade levels, especially those interested in music. I plan to use this story as writing prompt for my fifth graders. After reading this story to them, I will have them reflect on and write about something that they love to do, or wish to do in the future, and the obstacles they have had or anticipate having to overcome.
I had a student pick this book out to share with me during a tutoring session. I was floored. The student told me that the librarian in his school had read it to him and he wanted to read it to he started to read, I immediately noticed that he didn't understand what tone and intonation by the text that was written. Some words were in this amazing bold black font. Other words were highlighted with quotation marks and exclamation marks. As we continued to read this awesome real story, I was able to support my student learn about why authors write the method they do and why they choose certain text. The illustrations have such an honest realism to match the story and I got the opportunity to talk to my student about various cultures found in parts of cities, in the cities themselves, and states in our country.I was so enthusiastic about the book, I immediately bought a copy for my dad who loves the culture of Treme and Fresh Orleans. I didn't tell him what I was sending but when he got it, not only did who know who Trombone Shorty was but owned one of his is story resonated with an 8 year old Filipino boy and 68 year old Caucasian man. How awesome is that? The theme and morale are awesome.I found this book for a reason and it hit my soul. Melody is the universal language.
If you're a trombonist, you've heard of that crazy song, Blue Bells of Scotland, and you may have noticed the name of the composer, Arthur Pryor. You may not know that he was a trombonist himself(!) and played in the John Philip Sousa band for a lot of years, and then had his own band afterwards. Pryor was a popular name in the trombone world, and he wrote a lot of pieces featuring a solo trombone; most of them are featured here.If you wish to this album to hear unbelievable trombone playing so quick it'll blow your socks off or so beautiful in a ballad you fall right to sleep, this is not the album for you. It is a recording produced from an OLD master (you may recall the Sousa band was at the turn of the 20th century), and with trombone playing that is not the style thought of as 'pretty' by today's ear. If this describes you, look for some of these same songs (blue bells, thoughts of love, fantasic polka), recorded by some of today's trombone virtuosos - Christian Lindberg, Tag Lawrence, Joe Alessi, etc. to search a more modern sound.If, however, you wish authentic period music, this is about as authentic as you can get. The trombone style is choppy when fast, and not as connected for slow tunes also, and the band accompaniment is the same way; that was the famous style of the time. It is nice to hear these pieces and realize how the composer intended them to be played (because he's the one playing them).So, amazing for novelty purposes, poor for high quality recording of highest quality trombone playing
i am a 6th grader going to 7th and i play trombone in my school band and i hot this when i dont have my instrument and that i had a concert Thursday (yesterday may 19th) and was amazing and that i practiced my songs before i went its worth the trombone players
Its OK. You can't create combos unless the buildings touch each other with no zone in between and that is a glitch that any self respecting developer should have realized was there and corrected. The android game is only half as much fun because of this. It's a shame I like old computer style android games and I was satisfied to search kariosoft until I realized they have no standards of quality what so ever.
Payed for the android game and it wasnt what i had expectd, i love dream house days and i was hopeing for something related but after playing for a while i found it just wansnt what i wanted. Then i tryed the lite verson of your cloths retail type android game and i love it but i cant afford to it too. If you could me for this game, i would definitely use that towards another android game of yours
Defective Application The android game is beautiful good, related to Oh Edo Towns. Unfortunately the android game is defective. You can only play it once. When I test to do a second playthrough, the android game runs slow and looks somewhat blurry. It's slow enough to create it unplayable. If you are familiar with kairosoft android games you know part of the gaming experience contains having some of your android game data transfer over to your subsequent playthroughs. Giving it 2 stars until there is a fix.
Android game is nice. Bought the game, had it authorized though the net onces. Even played it. But some time android game will not let playing of the android game due to no Internet for authorisation, double authorisation? WHY?! Edit: Third time requiring net to authorize an purchased product.
Marijuana Venture is a various kind of marijuana publication. It’s definitely not a stoner/lifestyle magazine, and the emphasis is placed on writers and contributors who have a solid background in things like law, accounting, plant sciences, and retail. if you’re looking for information about the recent marijuana strains and their effects, or how to create pot cookies, go with High Times. If you’re looking for valuable info on the growing legal marijuana marketplace, this is the excellent choice.
Check for What the hell kairosoft? Why do I have to be online to validate the application every single time I begin it?? Why can't I play when I don't have Internet?? Why the hell did I so expensive when I can't even play it offline?? As for the game, it's addictive as usual with Kairosoft android games but I just cleared the first map and boy it was hard. You could barely spend on much things because each cost a lot. Maybe if you play more, it'll obtain easier.
I love the informative articles. It's not a "catalogue" with content that is clearly a thinly veiled ad like other magazines are. Purely business info - no "who is smoking with Snoop and Willie" stuff. Amazing info if you wish to obtain in the cannabis industry - and stay in business!
Been a longtime fan running this under ios, however have run into several problems running on mu Samsung infuse 4g. Had different problems with registration and saying it was perused. Performance also suffered, even with my superior proccesor I ran into lag and slowdowns.
Very well done trombone app! Slide your finger all around the screen to play various notes. The touch interface is very sensitive and you can really easily adjust the pitch and sound just like a true trombone. The really fun part is playing along with the songs in the songbook. It is kind of like Guitar Character where it shows you where to tap so you can play the song. Application runs excellent on my one year old sony ericsson xperia device. Highly recommended!
Arthur pryor's trombone playing in this exellent assortment of pieces recorded in the late 1800's gives both beginner and expert players fastastic insight on how to improve their playing. Arthur pryor will undoubtedly go down as one of the world's greatest trombonists of all time....and to actually hear him play is an amazing experience.
This CD is a compilation of only a very few of the literally thousands of recordings Arthur Pryor created as a trombonist during a span of about 20 years. Since they date to the earliest days of recording technology--all of the works here are from 1901-1911--the sound quality is not good compared to our modern recordings. Although all sorts of manipulations were used to improve the sound, including the combining of two various copies of the same recording, there is still a significant amount of hiss, crackle, and pop--it's more like a bowl of Rice Crispies than a newly recorded CD. If you can think of it like listening to an old Victorola it has a certain amount of charm, but surely some listeners will be immediately place off by the distortion, which admittedly lessens in the later works. Add to this the logistical issues of recording at the turn of the latest century--only a limited amount of players could gather around the equipment--and it becomes clear that we aren't really hearing what an audience member at the time would have heard during a live performance of Sousa's Band. In fact, the band comes off quite poorly here--in The Blue Bells of Scotland they can barely hold up with Arthur Pryor, and their ensemble playing is not good in a lot of locations to an extent that's hardly credible for what was widely believed to be the best band in the world.But of course one doesn't a CD like this to hear the accompaniment, or to listen to the sound quality. The only reason is to hear Arthur Pryor, surely the first amazing trombone soloist, in what is a unbelievable piece of turn-of-the-century Americana. Pryor was the son of a bandmaster and learned to play all sorts of instruments (violin, cornet, alto horn, string bass, and valve trombone!) at an early age and was given his first slide trombone some time after his 11th birthday. He became a trombone virtuoso in the face of overwhelming difficulties--not only did a kick from a mule effect in partial paralysis of his face, but also the trombone he'd been given was damaged and could only use the first two positions. In overcoming these seeming adversities through an astonishing work ethic he developed a lot of of the features which created his performance so special: his characteristic constant shimmery vibrato made by "waving" his jaw; and an awesome embouchure (lip muscle strength) which allowed him to play every chromatic pitch using only those two positions (normal trombone technique employs 7!). Pryor revolutionized trombone technique and set a fresh standard, not only at home in America, but also abroad during his a lot of European tours with the Sousa band and his own ensemble. One of his trombones, covered in engraving and with the characteristic unusually little bore he favored, can still be seen on display at the Interlochen School of the Arts outside of Traverse City, Michigan.Featured on the CD are 26 Pryor performances, a few with piano, 10 with the Sousa Band, and 12 with Pryor's own ensembles. The melody ranges from Italian opera arias (Verdi's Celeste Aida) to American famous songs of the day (Foster's My Old Kentucky Home) and includes a amazing portion of Pryor's own compositions and arrangements. Among my favorites are Pryor's The Patriot-Polka and Polka Fantastic, both clever pieces with awesome trombone performances. A true oddity is We Won't Go Home Until Morning (known to me as The Bear Went Over the Mountain) "played in four octaves"--it's exactly what it says it is. After a short piano introduction, Pryor plays the music unaccompanied and unadorned in a high octave, then an octave lower, another octave lower, and finally in pedal tones. The whole thing has a true carny atmosphere, as if P. T. Barnum were hiding just around the corner. Van Alstyne's Navajo also captures this air of a time long gone, when Americans were wide-eyed and innocent and the globe was never far from a Saturday afternoon near the bandstand.Of unique note are the unusually thorough notes in the programme booklet. Daniel E. Frizane supplies terrific biographical notes, from which I gleaned much of the info above; articles about the recordings and the Arthur Pryor performances are supplied, as well as an engineer's note describing the equipment and techniques used to restore the recordings. It's clearly a labor of love from all concerned.
Slow and laggy I love Kairosoft games. They are all so amazing in their own way. Unfortunately, I'm giving a few of them a single star (this one included) because of one thing; it's really Slow and Laggy. I have no idea why this happened since during the first time I play each game, everything works fine, movements are normal and the like. When I play a fresh one though and no matter how a lot of times I delete each saved game(s), it had become really laggy which of course kills all the fun. Anyone else suffering from this?
Dope I don't usually android games from Google play but when i do its usually Kairosoft games. I've now built up an entire collection of them because of the addicting video test that keeps you busy for hours and never gets boring. Check this one out if you got some change to spare. Its beautiful good.
Amazing. Not laggy. Awesome android game and lots to say positive. But more importantly, to all those that are having problems and claiming graphics or laggy play the second time. All you have to do is change your settings for graphics to performance mode and it solves it all. Don't be so fast to write a negative review if you haven't even tried to solve the problem. It works perfectly. You should and play this game, it will consume your life in the best way.
I like using this application for finding alternate positions&lines as well as for visualizing a line in a various way. I noticed the delay Ian mentions too. I can't use it to really play a tune just to work it out. Another thing that would be helpful is having more partials above the C. The next F up should be a minimum.
Really nice application overall. Am currently having some problems with the more songs feature, but the dev is super responsive and is working on it. Screen orientation is opposite of most apps because of mic positioning for blow mode and camera position for reality mode.
