Jazz on Film: An original blues feminist - "Bessie"

When we first think of the blues the images that first come to mind are either the Mississippi delta men with acoustic guitars like Robert Johnson and Son House or alternately the electrified version advanced by Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and urbanized in the likes of Jr. Wells and Buddy Guy among many others. However, lost in our understanding of history is the fact that in the beginning, the most famous of early blues musicians were women. They sold the most records and commanded the most attention although apart from only a few their names have largely been forgotten.

Voters in Ireland are deciding whether the country will amend its constitution to make same-sex marriage legal.

The vote on Friday follows months of debate in the heavily Catholic country. Opinion polls suggest the referendum will pass and Ireland will become the first country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage in a national vote.

But, as NPR's Ari Shapiro points out, "Polls in this part of the world have been totally wrong in the past.

Heroin, today, is killing more and more people in rural America.

One Mexican cartel has seeded low-cost heroin around rural towns in the Southwest and Midwest, selling it cheap and easy, almost like pizza.

Madison, Neb. — population 2,500 — is just a speck of a town, a two-hour drive from the big-city bustle of Omaha. But it's not far enough away to avoid the growing impact of heroin.

"The world's gotten smaller," says Police Chief Rod Waterbury. "If drugs can make it to Chicago, they can make it here."

During the course of his 29-year tenure, Burnett evolved from intern to head writer to executive producer of the Late Show with David Letterman, a position he held through last night's final show.

On Thursday, bassist John Patitucci settles into Dazzle, 930 Lincoln, for a two-night stand with his Electric Guitar Quartet. Raised in northern California, Patitucci played with musicians such as saxophonists Tom Scott and Ernie Watts and pianist Dave Grusin (who hails from Colorado) and began recording a number of discs for the GRP label. He also gained added wide exposure when he became a member of both Chick Corea’s Elektric and Akoustic bands.

One of the most musical countries on the planet, Brazil is awash in folk-music traditions, as well as a rich history in jazz and bossa nova. It seems as if Brazilian musicians can make beautiful sounds with everything and anything they touch.

The band Apanhador Só demonstrates that point, and then some: In this video, shot during SXSW in Austin this past spring, its members coax rhythms and beats from a trunkload of found items, including a children's bicycle and other playthings. The resulting performance of "Prédio" is the stuff of hip-swaying joy.

Global sensors, earthquake apps and satellite media outlets give us instant awareness of disasters anywhere in the world, anytime, but what happens after the momentary bump in coverage?  Jim Nowak shared the long view with the "First Take" audience, from his office as executive director of the dZi Foundation based in Ridgway, Colo. 

The Yoga Mat

Dr. Desiré Anastasia, a professor at MSU Denver's Sociology and Criminology department, joined First Take with Lando and Chavis to talk about her work bringing the spiritual practice of yoga to underserved populations such as inmates and veterans as part of her work with the Give Back Yoga Foundation

Celebrating the rich history of Denver's "Harlem of the West" was the 12th Annual Five Points Jazz Festival on Saturday May 16th.
