What is one of the most challenging aspects of creating original art? It doesn’t matter if you work with oils, acrylics, watercolor or pastels. Every artist in every medium has at one point struggled with color.
Stanley Clarke stretches his muscles and comes up with a mostly impressive, polystylistic, star-studded double album (now on one CD) that gravitates ever closer to the R&B mainstream. Clarke's writing remains strong and his tastes remain unpredictable, veering into rock, electronic music, acoustic jazz, even reggae in tandem with British rocker Jeff Beck. Clarke's excursion into disco, "Just a Feeling," is surprisingly and infectiously successful, thanks to a good bridge and George Duke's galvanizingly funky work on the Yamaha electric grand piano (his finest moment with Clarke by far). The brief "Blues for Mingus," a wry salute from one master bassist to another (Mingus died about six months before this album's release), is a cool acoustic breather for piano trio, and the eloquent Stan Getz can be detected, though nearly buried under the garish vocals and rock-style mix, on "The Streets of Philadelphia."
Richard Stephen Sinclair is an English progressive rock bassist, guitarist, and vocalist who has been a member of several bands of the Canterbury scene (Caravan, Camel, Hatfield and the North, Camel…). Caravan of Dreams were a British progressive rock band from the Canterbury scene. On their first album, Caravan of Dreams (1992), the band consisted of Richard Sinclair (guitar, vocals, bass on studio tracks), Dave Sinclair (keyboards), Jimmy Hastings (flute, saxophone), Andy Ward (drums), Rick Biddulph (live bass), Michael Heupel (flute) and Alan Clarke (harmonica).
The gang's all here: the in-demand New York session pros that fueled more hit records and seminal fusion cuts that anybody could accurately track down. And who knows how many tracks for TV commercials. Richard Tee came up from North Carolina and added a thick spread of Gospel to the collective sometimes billed as 'Stuff' (and sometimes not billed at all.) Every cut here climbs into a groove and rides.
FRONTLINE presents the extraordinary saga of FBI special agent John O'Neill. As the bureau's top counterterrorism agent, O'Neill–who investigated the bombings of the U.S. embassies in Africa and the attack on the USS Cole–joined then national security counterterrorism co-coordinator Richard Clarke in believing that the United States should kill Osama bin Laden before Al Qaeda launched a devastating attack on America. Richard Clarke, then speaking in his first major interview, talks about O'Neill's battles with the FBI top brass who found O'Neill's James Bond style an anathema. Forced out of the job he loved, O'Neill took a new position in the private sector–as head of security at the World Trade Center, where he was killed on September 11. The story of O'Neill's life and death provides a rare glimpse inside the FBI and helps answer the question: What did the government know?
The subject of the first lesson in this video is flowers in a glass; in it we’ll be using all eight of our colors. Remembering to “Have Some More Fun” we’ll start with a dark background this time and learn about painting flowers. With tips about painting back to front and how to paint glass- It’s easier than you think! Lastly we discover a trick from the “littlest room in the house”. In the second lesson we go the Irelands Balanchine Castle to a beautiful scene of a tree lined country lane and a flower filled meadow. We also learn a short history lesson about the names of the colors we’re using.
