O repertório está lindo de doer!
I’m way past 10 or 20% dips being heart stoppers and have learned to relish them as buying opps if I can. 30% lifts are always coming sometime in the future if you’ve chosen your investment right. As Duke Ellington once wrote in 1931 “it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing” #theduke#dukeellington#cryptobull#cryptocurrency#eos#sonm#0x#bch
Monday July 16th our production company @beyondthestagetv had the pleasure of interviewing Jazz Great, Philanthropist, & Educator @daveyyarborough at Duke Ellington School of the Arts 🎭 *
During his 30 years of working with music students at Duke Ellington, Davey S. Yarborough has been recognized nationally for his contributions to jazz education. This past year, he was the Jazz Education Network’s John LaPorta Jazz Educator of the Year and a quarter-finalist for the Grammy Music Educator of the Year Award. But in reflecting on his students, Mr. Yarborough’s perspective extends far beyond music. “I try to put my students in an environment of success and achievement, while giving them the tools, resources, and nurturing needed to inspire them to dream, act, and attain, and to contribute back to the community that produced them,” he explains. He measures success by his many students who have earned college degrees and become music educators themselves, and by the seniors from his jazz studies program who graduate in the top tiers of their class—including valedictorians and salutatorians. Mr. Yarborough recalls, “The first time that I saw the light in the eyes of a student who made a major breakthrough, I was hooked.” #daveyyarborough#educator#jazzeducation#jazz#dukeellington#beyondthestage#changingthenarrative#presenceoverpresents#dc 📸 @carnegie__ (swipe 👈🏿)
For more than two decades, this location, then at the south end of Second Avenue, was one of Nashville’s entertainment centers. From the late ‘20s into the ‘30s, there was an 8,000-seat baseball park here, where the Nashville Standard Giants/Elite Giants played. Between 1941 and 1952, jazz, blues and R&B giants played the Paradise Ballroom, a large room that also hosted roller skating, basketball and political rallies.
Legends that played the Paradise include Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, the Ink Spots, Fletcher Henderson, Earl “Fatha” Hines, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Lucky Millinder, Lionel Hampton, Jay McShann, Erskine Hawkins, Billy Eckstine, Jimmie Lunceford, Amos Milburn, Louis Jordan, “Bull Moose” Jackson, T-Bone Walker, Roy Brown and Ruth Brown.
