Guitarist Larry Coryell, Godfather Of Fusion, Dies At 73

Guitarist Larry Coryell, Godfather Of Fusion, Dies At 73

Larry Coryell, the jazz guitarist known as the "Godfather of Fusion," died Sunday night at a hotel in New York City, according to his publicist. He was 73.

Coryell was still performing more than 50 years after his first recordings. He played at New York jazz club Iridium on Friday and Saturday night, and had plans for a summer tour with his fusion group The Eleventh House.

Coryell's recordings in the late 1960s, first with his band the Free Spirits, then with the Gary Burton Quartet and finally as a bandleader, predicted the rise of jazz-rock fusion and contributed to the sonic evolution the genre. It's no wonder that snippets of his work were sampled by renowned producers, including J Dilla and DJ Shadow.

On the NPR program Billy Taylor's Jazz, Dr. Taylor described Coryell as such: " plays all the styles, Latin, jazz-rock, straight ahead jazz, European classical music. You name it, he's a master of it."

"The President favors one-way conversations, ideally composed at 140 characters."

Current Parliament member speaking, predicting mass protests if Trump visits, saying that if they could take him out for a "non-alcoholic pint or a curry and send him away a better man," he'd be all for it, but Trump doesn't favor two-way conversations.

FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF PARLIAMENT that the words "grab them by the pussy" were spoken

Parliament member now speaking, a teacher who teaches her students tolerance, but how do you tolerate Trump saying "grab them by the pussy?"

MANY of the members have condemned him, but she came straight out of the gate and hung him out to dry. She's reading letters of protest regarding his visit now. "A Pandora's box of hate has been opened."

WATCH LIVE: UK Parliament debates whether to invite President Trump for official visit

http://www.rawstory.com/2017/02/watch-live-uk-parliament-debates-whether-to-invite-president-trump-for-official-visit/

The United Kingdom’s Parliament is debating right now on whether to formally invite President Donald Trump to the country for an official state visit.

On one side, anti-Trump MPs argue that Trump’s past statements slamming the free press, his own intelligence agencies, and the NATO alliance — not to mention his past racist and misogynistic remarks — mean that the U.K. should not invite him for an official visit.

Pro-Trump MPs, meanwhile, have argued that the U.S.-U.K. alliance is too important to allow for personal distaste of Trump to jeopardize it.

Watch a live stream of the debate below.

Pence says that when the media plays "fast and loose" with facts, there WILL be consequences

Pence: Trump supports free press but will call out false reports. USA! #MAGA!



U.S. President Donald Trump believes in a free and independent press but he will not hesitate to point out flawed reporting, the U.S Vice President Mike Pence said on Monday.

"Rest assured the president and I both strongly support a free and independent press but you can anticipate that the president and all of us will continue to call out the media when they play fast and loose with the facts," Pence told a news conference at the NATO headquarters in Brussels.

"When the media gets it wrong, President Trump will take his case straight to the American people to set the record straight," he added.
