New Release- The Wonder of Jazz: Music That Changed The World by Sammy Stein

WOJcover ISBN 9781800688728a

Title:  The Wonder of Jazz:  

Subtitle:   Music That Changed The World

Author:   Sammy Stein

Genre: Non-Fiction/Music/Jazz

Format: Paperback

164 Pages

Publisher:  Independent Publishing Network

Publication Date:  May 22, 2022

Synopsis:  This book not only shares the history, influences, and impact of jazz music. The Wonder of Jazz is like being in a room with some of jazz’s coolest people and spending a couple of hours soaking up their passion and knowledge.

Starting with the origins of jazz, this award-winning author, columnist and reviewer shares her knowledge generously and with an authority that makes this new publication a defining work on the subject.

This compendium is as compelling and informative to jazz novices and the music makers of the future as it is to those familiar with jazz’s complex harmonies, intricate rhythms, and creative arrangements.
With input from over 100 musicians the book discusses what exactly is jazz, and how do you know you are listening to it? Do we truly know when and how jazz first originated? Who was the first jazz musician? How does jazz link to other genres? What about women in jazz? And writers and journalists? Do reviews make any difference? Is the story of jazz more complex than the accepted chain of events?

This book is a deep dive into jazz’s history, impact, and future. It discusses the social, cultural, and political influence of jazz and reveals areas where jazz has had an impact we may not even realise. Its influences on hip hop, the connection to third stream, classical, and other art forms are all discussed as well as the future, the impact of young people and how they are changing established canons from within.

The journey this book takes the reader on is one of discovery and revelation.

Some of the information comes from research by the author but much comes from those in the music, those who teach, witness the reactions of an audience, and understand how relevant jazz is right now.
The book looks at jazz’s game changers – the people after whom the music was never the same, civil rights, gender, jazz dynasties, and how jazz musicians have lent their power to deliver political messages in subtle and not so subtle ways.

A book about jazz music’s vitality, energy, dynamism and its people, the ordinary people making extraordinary music.

Jazzwise magazine said of Sammy’s work, “It’s all here, beautifully written, eloquently argued, clear-eyed in its intentions and open in its invitation” and Jazz Matters said, “The sheer volume and status of the people who have given up their time to help Sammy, both women, and men, is a testament to the respect Sammy has earned across the industry and the trust people have in her to relay their stories faithfully.” Jazz Views say, “Ms. Stein writes in a commanding and authoritative style that ensures that the reader’s attention is grasped from the outset, and sets out her statements and opinions clearly and concisely before backing them up with solid facts and opinions.

Abandonment, physical abuse, and psychological torture swallowed his youth. Depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and agoraphobia were the result of suffering. But through surviving cancer, a new self-discipline was born; that of iron will and perseverance. Craig transformed himself from the broken pieces to find powerful courage to soar through fear, then above it.

In From Shattered To Soaring, he shares his extraordinary life story and reveals the powerful techniques as a practical guide he used to transform fear, anxiety, and panic, to reach his full potential. His story uncovers a path that anyone can follow with actionable exercises to shatter fear, drive through pain, and uncover their greatness.

This book was written for those suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia, and depression. After enduring a lifelong struggle with these debilitating disorders, Craig discovered a way though the fear, and no longer suffers.

• If you are paralyzed by fear
• Stuck in the grip of anxiety
• Frozen in place by panic attacks
• Enclosed by overwhelming agoraphobia
• Or buried in a deep well of depression

This book was written just for you.

Craig Evans has been where you are now, and knows what it feels like to try your best and to fail. Once stuck in the seemingly never ending cycle of fear, anxiety, panic, then self-preservation, he managed to shatter those glass ceilings, and soar to heights once thought impossible.

He has found the keys that will help you pass through the door of panic and fear so that they no longer control you. What may seem impossible now will become your past achievements. You can become the key maker to unlock any door you previously thought impossible. Apply what Craig share’s, and you will become your own superhero.

Subtitle:  Follows The Letters & Sounds Structure

Author:    Catherine Fisher

Genre: NonFiction/ Language Reference

Format: Paperback 

Pages:   75 pages

Publisher: Independent 

Publication Date: August ,2021

Synopsis:  This phonics workbook shows children how to sound out, blend and read words ~ developing key reading skills.

This phonics workbook follows the order suggested in the letters and sounds phonics system. The sounds/letters covered in this book are: s a t p i n m d.

For the large letters ask your child to trace the letter with their finger saying the sound as they do it. They can also write the letter in the air. Then progress to writing the sounds with a pencil. Each letter is introduced with large letters followed by smaller letters.

Ask your child to ‘sound out’ the 3 letter words then say the sounds faster to blend into a word eg: m – a – p, m a p, m a p, map.

Make sure the sounds are short, for instance, ‘a’ rather than ‘aaaah’.

The book then helps your child to read, copy and write words.

The last few pages are for handwriting practice. Pencils are preferable as they offer a greater sensory feedback than a pen.

Perfect for home schooling, extra practice, tutoring and reinforcement.
