Snarky Puppy’s Chris Bullock On Why He Loves Playing In JAZZ Is PHSH

first_imgReimagining the music of Phish is no easy feat, requiring to not only understand the band’s complex music but to reinterpret it within the realms of instrumental jazz. Through careful composition, Jazz Is PHSH takes this challenge head on. Naturally, only the finest musicians have performed with the band, honing their talents in some true jazz fusion.Jazz Is PHSH is set to begin their fall tour tomorrow night, November 26th, with back to back performances at The Cutting Room in New York, NY (more info here). With members of Dave Matthews Band, Rubblebucket, Snarky Puppy and more, these intimate shows are sure to capture the music of Phish in new and exciting ways. In preparation for the upcoming show, we sat down with saxophonist Chris Bullock to talk about what makes his time in Jazz is PHSH so special.L4LM: What attracted you to being a part of Jazz Is PHSH?CB: The prospect of the various musicians involved.L4LM: Were you a Phish fan before this project?CB: I didn’t really listen to their music very much. I had friends when I was younger that were way into them so heard the music indirectly. I did own their album “Hoist” on cassette tape in high school. That album was the extent of my direct listening to their music.L4LM: Has being a part of Jazz Is PHSH changed how you feel about Phish’s music?CB: I wouldn’t say it has changed any feelings I hold. It has allowed me to check out a lot more of it that I have never heard and find some new ways to reinterpret it.L4LM: What should potential fans know about how the music has been rearranged?CB: A good portion of the tunes have been put through our own individual musical filters. We have altered them to fit the instrumentation and styles of the musicians within the band.L4LM: What is your favorite Jazz Is PHSH arrangement? What makes it so good?CB: I enjoy playing the tune “Carini.” We’ve arranged the tune in a way to highlight closely-voiced horns with a driving groove throughout.L4LM: We read that you are featured on woodwinds on the new Phish album, “Big Boat”. What was it like working with Phish?CB: I performed clarinet, bass clarinet, flute, and alto flute on the last track on the album, “Petrichor.” It was a lot of fun and cool opportunity for me. I spent a day in the studio with Trey Anastasio checking out the woodwinds parts he had written and got to collaborate and add to his arrangement. The following day I returned and spent the day with him and the legendary engineer, Elliot Scheiner, to track all of the woodwinds.L4LM: What was the first Phish song you ever heard? Did you like it?CB: Hmm, I honestly can’t remember. It was probably a tune off of “Hoist.”L4LM: What else is on the horizon for Chris Bullock?CB: I’ve got a bit of a break from touring with Snarky Puppy at the moment. I’m focusing most of my free time to writing and have begun recording my first solo record that I plan to release in 2017. The music is a blend of woodwind chamber music paired with electronic beats and synths. I’m augmenting the electronic environment with analog instruments and live musicians as well.I’m also enjoying immersing myself into the NYC music scene after spending a majority of the past two years on tour and away from this vibrant city.L4LM: In case any fans want to buy you a drink at an upcoming show, what is your favorite cocktail?CB: I always enjoy a mezcal negroni.You can be sure to grab a drink for Chris Bullock tomorrow night, November 26th, when he performs with Jazz Is PHSH for back-to-back shows at The Cutting Room in New York.

Clare Crawley, Dale Moss Talk About Having Babies ‘All the Time’

first_imgThe California native and the former football player hit it off quickly after meeting on season 16 of The Bachelorette, which began airing in October. During the Thursday, November 6, episode, Moss got down on one knee and left the reality series early with his soon-to-be wife. Despite facing criticism from those who’ve said they moved too fast, the new couple are ready for whatever comes their way.Clare Crawley Gushes Over Her Hopes for a Future With Dale MossDale Moss and Clare Crawley ABC/Craig Sjodin“As long as we’re together, for me that’s all that matters,” the model said on Friday, adding that he’s looking forward to having “so many babies” with Crawley. “We’re building a life. We’re building a foundation.”From the moment they laid eyes on each other, Crawley and Moss knew they’d found something special. The duo are head over heels in love, but they aren’t afraid to recognize the tough realities that their biracial children might face in the future.- Advertisement – “Our babies are going to be mixed and they’re going to face those kinds of things and they’re going to have those questions,” the hairdresser added. “Hopefully we will have so much progression by the time our little babies are grown up, but it’s like, he just makes it so comfortable that we can talk about this and that it’s not an uncomfortable elephant in the room. … It’s not a negative thing. We’re proud of who we are, what we are.”Listen to Here For the Right Reasons to get inside scoop about the Bachelor franchise and exclusive interviews from contestants “This has come up naturally in our conversation,” Moss explained. “I think the biggest thing is, we know that we can come to each other for anything. There’s no judgment, there’s no worry, and that’s what’s so important about having a relationship and building this. And we both lean on each other for advice and perspective in some of these situations. … There’s things that have come up where Clare has come directly and asked me, ‘What’s the best way that I should approach this? Or what is respectful?’”The South Dakota native grew up in a biracial family and has had to come to terms with being the target of prejudice. “My mom’s side disowned her because she married a Black man. I grew up in an all-white community where I couldn’t stay at my friend’s houses when I was a kid. We had to really fight for respect and to make our place in the community in which I grew up,” Moss said. “This is something that I’ve been around since the time that I was a little kid. We know that we’ll deal with some of these things, but there hasn’t been a worry or anything like that. We just get through everything together just like we would in any setting.”As a white woman, Crawley acknowledged that there are things that her fiancé experiences that she’ll never be able to understand herself. However, she’s “thankful and so happy” for the opportunity to learn from Moss and his perspective.- Advertisement – Throwing out the timeline! Clare Crawley and Dale Moss progressed their relationship at lightning speed while on The Bachelorette — and they’re already thinking about their next step.“What I love about Dale is that nothing scares him,” Crawley, 39, gushed during a joint interview with her fiancé, 32, on the “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast on Friday, November 6. “I talk about babies all the time and he’s like, ‘Yeah, that’s what I want.’ I’ll remind him of things all the time, you know, ‘I’m not getting any younger!’ I’ll say things like that, and he’s like, ‘You think I don’t know this? Yeah, let’s do this.’”- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

ADBP Publishes Paper on Dredging Cost Standards

first_imgImage source: ADBPThe financial costs associated with dredging activity are highly variable, depending on the plant being employed and the type of dredging being undertaken, Anthony D Bates Partnership (ADBP) reports. Since 2005, the Construction Industry Research and Information Association (CIRIA), has published the book ‘Cost standards for dredging equipment’.The guide presents the primary capital values and costs associated with a range of dredging plant, based on their specification. This publication is commonly used throughout the industry for a range of studies including CAPEX estimation, cost allocation between dredging contractors in joint venture and most prominently in disputes, where cost estimation is required to be undertaken.Due to the high capital cost and subsequent value of dredging plant, the accurate calculation of the respective depreciation and interest is fundamental to the build-up of the estimated daily operating plant rates. Ongoing maintenance and repair of the plant also forms a primary cost.The CIRIA publication details these items for a variety of dredging plant. It does not provide detail on other operational costs such as labour, insurance, fuel, wear and tear, overheads and profit/risk.According to the document, these must be derived from further calculations to ascertain the total cost of leasing the dredging plant, commonly known as the daywork rate.The paper was presented by Leigh Holmes at the CEDA Dredging Days conference in Rotterdam on the 7th of November and was well-received – promoting constructive discussion amongst CIRIA Dredging Cost Standard book users across the dredging industry.last_img read more

MPs to protect parents’ rights against ‘gender ideology’ – Italy

first_imgLifeSiteNews 9 April 2014Italian Deputies Eugenia Roccella and Alessandro Pagano have introduced a bill in Parliament that would establish the rights of parents to make decisions about their children’s education, particularly on moral issues.The move comes in response to increasing concerns by some deputies, parent groups, and civil rights organizations that the government is being co-opted by organized activists to push the so-called “gender ideology” in schools and other Italian institutions.The purpose of the bill, Roccella said at a press conference, is to “reaffirm and ensure the fundamental right to educational choice of parents, as set out, inter alia, in the European Convention on Human Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.”Which means in practice, she said, that in all school activities that “relate directly or indirectly to the issues related to relationships, affectivity and sexuality education, and other ethically sensitive issues in general, the parents are informed, who must give their consent in writing to each student.”The schools must also provide alternative activities for those who choose not to take advantage of extra-curricular activities, “without giving rise to any form of discrimination.”Roccella is a former feminist activist and past state secretary for health who has long been a champion of life and family causes in Italy’s Parliament, most recently against the proposed “anti-homophobia” law. She is a deputy with the newly-formed Nuovo Centro Destra party (NCD, “New Centre-Right”).http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/italian-mps-introduce-bill-to-protect-parents-constitutional-rights-againstlast_img read more
