In 1989, Steps Ahead consisted of Mike Mainieri on MIDI vibraharp, synclavier and acoustic piano, the young saxophonist Bendik doubling on keyboards, guitarist Steve Kahn, Tony Levin on electric bass and Chapman stick, and drummer Steve Smith. The powerful band did not have a great deal of subtlety by this era, but it helped to keep the much-maligned genre of fusion alive, mixing the sound of rock with jazz improvising.
Historian Ben Woolley discusses the attitudes to science, experimentation and even death that 18th century painting so perfectly captured in Joseph Wright of Derby's An Experiment on a Bird In The Air Pump. Ben Woolley tells the story of a neglected masterpiece: Joseph Wright of Derby's An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump. Until recently, Wright was dismissed by many art critics as a minor provincial but Wright was in fact a virtuoso painter whose scientific paintings give a unique insight into the Enlightenment in Britain. Ben Woolley's deconstruction of this epic painting takes him from Wright's birthplace in Derby to East Germany, where he witnesses a reconstruction of the famous Magdeburg hemispheres experiment. He visits London's Royal Society and uncovers the strange history of animal experimentation in the 18th century.
Intuition is the fourth studio album by the Norwegian glam metal band TNT. The sound of the album was more commercial than on their previous albums – less fiery, less edgy, and as a result there is something essential sacrificed in the band’s obvious bid for MTV viewers’ hearts and the rest of the hairsprayed/stonewashed denim universe of 1989. Recommended for hard rock fans that like melodic rock.
