The Very Best of Nina Simone (2006)

Nina Simone was born Eunice Kathleen Waymon in Tryon, North Carolina, one of eight children. Like a number of other African-American singers, she was inspired as a child by Marian Anderson and began singing at her local church, also showing prodigious talent as a pianist. Her public debut, a piano recital, was made at the age of ten. Her parents, who had taken seats in the front row, were forced to move to the back of the hall to make way for some white people.

Simone's mother, Mary Kate Waymon (who lived into her late 90s) was a strict Methodist minister; her father, John Divine Waymon, was a handyman and sometime barber who suffered bouts of ill-health. Mrs. Waymon worked as a maid and her employer, hearing of Nina's talent, provided funds for piano lessons for the little girl. Subsequently, a local fund was set up to assist in Eunice's continued education.

At seventeen, Simone moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she taught piano and accompanied singers. She was able to begin studying piano at New York City's prestigious Juilliard School of Music but lack of funds meant that she was unable to fulfill her dream of becoming America's first Black classical pianist. She later had an interview to study piano at the Curtis Institute, but was rejected. Simone believed this rejection, which fuelled her hatred of racism, was because she was black. Read more ...

Steal This Film II

The League of Noble Peers are delighted, after more than a year, to release Part II of STEAL THIS FILM. In this film, we have tried to go beyond the current discussions around file-sharing to look at what kinds of social change are precipitated by massive changes in our capacity to communicate. We think the changes wrought by networked, peer distribution are historical on the scale of the printing press and here we try to explain why.

For many of you these argument will be familiar. These are strange times, in which to many of us the battle already seems to have been won. And yet we have to accept that all the time harsh laws are being enacted, lawsuits levied against innocent people, arrests made - all intended to destroy or delay what is an inevitable change in how we look at creative work. We hope STEAL THIS FILM II can be useful in bringing new people into the legions of those prepared to think creatively about the future of distribution, production and creativity.

It has been an exciting and demanding year for us and we really hope you will enjoy the work we have done. It would not have been possible without the the thousands of donations you have given us.

Thank you.

Paolo Conte - The Best Of (1998)

L'avvocato col vizio del jazz

Paolo Conte (born 6 January 1937) is a craggy-voiced italian singer, pianist and composer. He both writes and performs his own material and his grainy, resonant voice redolent of Francophone singers like Jacques Brel adds a certain charm to his wistful, sometimes melancholic lyrics. His performing career began as a vibraphone player in local and touring bands. He began songwriting with his brother Giorgio Conte early on and eventually began writing songs of his own. read more ...

Youp van 't Hek - Oeuvre

Youp van 't Hek wordt op 28 februari 1954 in Naarden geboren als Joep (Joseph Jacobus Maria) van 't Hek. Hij is het zevende en daarmee het op een na jongste kind van zijn Amsterdamse ouders. Er is thuis veel aandacht voor muziek. Vader, directeur van een beleggingsmaatschappij, is een groot operaliefhebber, maar ook het vaderlandse cabaret is rijk vertegenwoordigd in zijn platencollectie. Met jongere broertje Tommie, die later bekend zal worden als hockey-international en hockey-coach en die inmiddels een bekend sportverslaggever is, draait Joep deze platen grijs. Zoals zijn broertje ervan droomt hoe een vol voetbalstadion hem onthaalt, zo hoort Joep het applaus voor Wim Sonneveld, Wim Kan en Toon Hermans en hij ziet zichzelf in een volle schouwburg opkomen. Hij schrijft schriften vol met zijn eerste liedjes en conferences, maar als hij van de lagere school af komt, heeft hij een ander toekomstplan: hij wil priester worden.
