Fallen Angel Reviews: Lola Bordenaux is a strong survivor determined to have a better future and to conquer the demons of her past. She is working her way through college as a stripper, but knows how to hide her incredible beauty away from the club. Who knew you could find love while being tackled by a former college professor? (duh! that’s the book)

Rolling Stone : At a rehearsal, drummer Al Jackson Jr. switched to a double-time beat on the second verse, propelling the song to a high-energy climax. “We didn’t know [Al] was gonna do that,” said bassist Duck Dunn. “It was just amazing.”

Museum of Broadcast Communications : Although he will be remembered most for his physically rigid portrayal of the morally rigid cop Joe Friday on Dragnet, Jack Webb had one of the most varied and far-reaching careers in television history.

Joao Gilberto : At 10 o’clock I arrived to the theater. At 10.30 the lights went down. Caetano Veloso, dressed with a grey suit came on the stage where there were just two chairs. The theater was full. I looked to the faces of the crowd and it seemed there were more caetanists than gilbertists.

Brian Hyland : Vocally and artistically Brian has been called “chameleonesque” for all his musical changes, having produced Hits for five different labels and successfully recorded everything from Novelty to Pop Ballads; to Folk Rock and Country Rock; to Pop Rock and Pop Soul, over more than a decade from 1960 through 1971.

MySpace : Collectively, Crosby and his musicians represent the finest exponents of this unique musical fusion known as skazz, a fusion loved and appreciated by everyone, of all ages and colours around the globe.

Lisa Ono : Born in São Paulo of Japanese descent, Lisa has been living in Japan since age 10. Even having lived in Brazil for such a short time, she was turned into a type of MPB (Brazil Popular Music) ambassador in Japan, influenced by her father, who owned a club while living in Brazil, and was also Baden Powell’s agent.

Wikipedia : Art Todd, who sang “Chanson D’amour” with his wife, Dotty, died October 10, 2007 of congestive heart failure in Honolulu, where he lived. He was 93.
