One of The Telegraph's Best Music Books 2011 Alex Ross's award-winning international bestseller, The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century, has become a contemporary classic, establishing Ross as one of our most popular and acclaimed cultural historians. Listen to This, which takes its title from a beloved 2004 essay in which Ross describes his late-blooming discovery of pop music, showcases the best of his writing from more than a decade at The New Yorker. These pieces, dedicated to classical and popular artists alike, are at once erudite and lively. In a previously unpublished essay, Ross brilliantly retells hundreds of years of music history—from Renaissance dances to Led Zeppelin—through a few iconic bass lines of celebration and lament. He vibrantly sketches canonical composers such as Schubert, Verdi, and Brahms; gives us in-depth interviews with modern pop masters such as Björk and Radiohead; and introduces us to music students at a Newark high school and indie-rock hipsters in Beijing. Whether his subject is Mozart or Bob Dylan, Ross shows how music expresses the full complexity of the human condition. Witty, passionate, and brimming with insight, Listen to This teaches us how to listen more closely.

Listen to This stands out as the first book exclusively dedicated to Davis’s watershed 1969 album, Bitches Brew. Victor Svorinich traces its incarnations and inspirations for ten-plus years before its release. The album arrived as the jazz scene waned beneath the rise of rock and roll and as Davis (1926–1991) faced large changes in social conditions affecting the African-American consciousness. This new climate served as a catalyst for an experiment that many considered a major departure. Davis’s new music projected rock and roll sensibilities, the experimental essence of 1960s’ counterculture, yet also harsh dissonances of African-American reality. Many listeners embraced it, while others misunderstood and rejected the concoction. Listen to This is not just the story of Bitches Brew. It reveals much of the legend of Miles Davis—his attitude and will, his grace under pressure, his bands, his relationship to the masses, his business and personal etiquette, and his response to extraordinary social conditions seemingly aligned to bring him down. Svorinich revisits the mystery and skepticism surrounding the album, and places it into both a historical and musical context using new interviews, original analysis, recently found recordings, unearthed session data sheets, memoranda, letters, musical transcriptions, scores, and a wealth of other material. Additionally, Listen to This encompasses a thorough examination of producer Teo Macero’s archives and Bitches Brew’s original session reels in order to provide the only complete day-to-day account of the sessions.

Introduced by Douglas Gifford.This collection of the best of Iain Crichton Smiths short fiction brings together not one but many voices, both public and private. Ranging from inner promptings towards self-discovery, through the unconscious comedy of everyday speech, to the rantings of near madness, these stories display the peaks of Smiths wry, surrealistic humour, and his confessional mode in re-telling the past.The longer stories, illustrative of Smiths novels, are represented by Murdo and the seminal The Black and the Red. There are also outstanding short pieces such as Listen to the Voice and the poignant vignette, The Dying.These sensitive stories focus on the ambiguities of the inner voice, whose promptings can lead to self-discovery or repression and madness. Each juxtaposes the minutiae of everyday life with moments of searing emotion. Independent on SundayHe has a dry pungent humour, a gift for comic invention and a welcome ability to laugh at himself and his background while making a serious point and taking us to conclusions that are anything but obvious.

`What a gem. This book introduces a whole-school approach to an area that has previously been addressed by the speech and language specialists working with small groups. This approach helps to develop language processing skills by improving the auditory and visual attention skills used The resources on the CD-Rom will be invaluable for reminding pupils if the skills they should be using to learn to listen. This interactive and fun approach explains the difference between the skills of social listening and listening skills necessary for processing information in learning' - TES Extra, Special Needs `This book is well designed. It utilizes many strategies speech-therapists use in their clinical work. It is a simple resource that is easy to follow and has had good rates of success when delivered by teachers' - Communication Matters `The programme should lead to improvements in social skills, learning and classroom behaviour, and it is easy to implement with two teaching sessions and a follow-up booster session. There are comprehensive facilitator instructions and all the resources are provided for these fun and interactive sessions that will engage all pupils' - Learning to Learn Newsletter This book provides a completely new approach to the teaching of listening. Whilst educators are familiar with assessing comprehension, little has been done to ensure that the input process is efficient. By improving auditory and visual attention during a listening activity the authors demonstrate how the process can be enhanced. The programme should lead to improvements in social skills, learning and classroom behaviour, and it is easy to implement with two teaching sessions and a follow-up booster session. There are comprehensive facilitator instructions and all the resources are provided for these fun and interactive sessions that will engage all pupils. The difference between social listening for interaction and accurate listening in a classroom setting is explained. As well as the usual topics: eye contact, body language, acknowledgements etc there is a fascinating section on the neurological evidence for the importance of efficient sitting positions. We expect young people to acquire effective listening skills but it is a complex activity, which benefits direct teaching.
