The suit was filed in Us Central District Court in Los Angeles by the law firms King, Holmes, Paterno & Soriano; McPherson Llp; and Susman Godfrey Llp. Plaintiffs include the estates of Tom Petty and Tupac Shakur, the bands Hole and Soundgarden, and singer-songwriter Steve Earle.
The 2008 fire affected hundreds of thousands of master recordings and unreleased music and other materials. Umg downplayed the effects, but an investigation by the New York Times discovered the actual damages. Umg is the world’s largest recording company and had works ranging back to Louis Armstrong as well as more modern materials.
The lawsuit declared that Umg breached its contract with the affected musicians by failing to archive materials properly. Instead, the works were kept “in an inadequate,
The suit accuses Universal Music of negligence in not doing enough to prevent the fire, as well as concealing the extent of the destruction from artists while simultaneously pursuing litigation and insurance claims to recoup losses. The suit claims that Universal took in settlement proceeds and insurance claims valued at $150 million,
In an internal memo circulated to employees (and obtained by the La Times), Grainge said, “Let me be clear: we owe our artists transparency. We owe them answers. I will ensure that the senior management of this company, starting with me, owns this.”
Grainge also outlined proper protocol should an artist get in touch about the status of their recordings.
Nevertheless an engaging thumbnail overview of the record label’s heyday, its key players, and the descendants and disciples committed to carrying on its name and vision, “Beyond the Notes” succeeds better as an introduction to Blue Note and jazz in general than as an expert or in-depth examination of the musical genre or one of its most iconic distributors.
Part of the challenge is deciding where to start: With the musicians who pioneered the genre, or the earliest fans-turned visionaries who helped get them heard? Huber begins with Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff,
The fire was widely reported in 2008, but according to the Times,
New Orleans musician Mac Rebennack conjured the best mojo in Dr. John the Night Tripper.
"They call me Dr. John, The Night Tripper," New Orleans voodoo pianist Mac Rebennack sang on the 1969 song "Gris-Gris Gumbo Ya Ya." With his sizzling Gris-Gris his hand, he lived and breathed New Orleans. The last of the best, Dr. John the Night Tripper, died of a heart attack "toward the break of day" on Thursday, June 6, according to the New York Times. Like Leon Redbone, who died last week, there is some dispute over Dr. John's age, various reports have him listed as 77 or 78.
"The family thanks all whom have shared his unique musical journey, and requests privacy at this time," a statement from the musician's family said. They did not say where he died, though he reportedly was resting at his Lake Pontchartrain area home, not too far from New Orleans.
Genn’s musical career began in his teens when schoolfriend Jarvis Cocker asked him, “Do you fancy playing bass in our band?” “I don’t know how to play bass,” Genn replied. “Don’t worry about that, none of us can really play.” As is shown by this
“When we talk about people psychologically and having issues we say, ‘Oh, they’ve got baggage,’” notes Geoff Dyer, author of a book on Winogrand. “That’s one of the things that’s so manifested in Winogrand. Yeah, we see the baggage these people are carrying.”
Dyer makes that observation in the documentary Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable, a film in which director Sasha Waters Freyer unpacks the complicated life and remarkable work of a man some consider the greatest American street photographer.
“He was really interested in these public spaces where a certain kind of theater of the street might unfold,” Waters Freyer tells Deadline. “He took this style associated with photojournalism and brought it into the world of the fine arts.
For more than 60 years, Nashville’s Music Row has been the bustling center of the city’s recording and music-publishing industries,

The trumpeter had entered only about 30 seconds before, walking into a small conference room at the New York offices of Jazz at Lincoln Center. Impeccably dressed in a gray suit, he leaned in for a quick hug by way of a greeting. If Marsalis seemed a tad impatient, he had a point: The document he’d prepped did in fact speak for itself.
Having said that, “The Apollo” doesn’t work overtime to ask the most probing questions. It’s hard not to watch the movie without considering the issues it glosses over that might have given this absorbing chronicle more of an investigative flair. The non-fiction medium has a reigning king in this department: Documentary maestro Frederick Wiseman, whose cinematic deep-dives include the New York Library portrait “Ex Libris,
Set to Louis Armstrong's It's a Wonderful World, the minute-plus trailer shows a variety of Pokemon interacting with our planet. Squirtle pops out of some water. Pancham plays in bamboo. Psyduck talks and does something else. And so on.
The trailer ends with a real tear-jerker moment where Pikachu (Reynolds) tells Justice Smith's character what his missing dad would do if he were there. It most definitely is a Pikachu World.
The second video is of the behind-the-scenes variety and shows some first glimpses of Reynolds working on the set of Detective Pikachu as well as interview bits with the core cast. It doesn't have nearly as much new footage as the
The trailer, appropriately titled "What a Pikachu World," is in stark contrast to what has come before. Where the others have focused on the comedy, fun and action, this one is all heart and Pokemon. We see Justice Smith's character making his way through a world absolutely jam-packed with these creatures. Given the tune that it's set to, it's already likely going to make some people a little weepy.
There’s no battles here, but there’s certainly a lot of heart. Scored to the Louis Armstrong classic “What a Wonderful World,” we see not only skies of blue in the latest “Detective Pikachu” trailer but also Charmander and Bulbasaur frolicking in the woods as star Justice Smith gets a taste of a world he hardly knew existed.
“Listen kid, if your dad was here, he would hug you so hard, your bones would pop,” a teary-eyed Pikachu (as voiced by Reynolds) says to Smith.
