Sidney Bechet

Sidney Bechet (1897-1959)

Bechet's style of playing clarinet and soprano sax dominated many of the bands that he was in.
He played lead parts that were usually reserved for trumpets and was a master of improvisation.
Bechet summered many years in Juan-les-Pins on the French Riviera. A statue there, presented by the city of New Orleans, commemorates his life.

Jazz on the Riviera started in the 1920's and really became popular in the 1950's.

When Sydney Bechet was married in 1950 in Juan-les-Pins, most of the jazz greats journeyed to the Riviera for the wedding.

We are working on our list of Golf Hotels and Resorts

Some of these are well known because of PGA Tour events held there. Pinehurst; The Greenbrier; and Pebble Beach certainly belong in this catagory. Others are located in towns with even more than golf as an attraction. In this Category is The Otesaga in Cooperstown, New York; Basin Harbor Club on Lake Champlain.

Jazz on the Riviera

American GIs went to France in World War 1 and brought the new music with them. New French words appeared almost as rapidly: rag-time became "le temps de chiffon", while "swinguer" and "le big band" entered French dictionaries.

Between the wars, more Americans followed with their jazz. During this time, the Riviera stopped being a sedate Winter resort and turned into a cool Summer resort. Many African-American jazz musicians came too because of the warm and friendly reception of the French people.

Because the Riviera is an "outdoors" place, the "jazz festival" was born. In France, there are over 250 jazz festivals: most in July and August, and most in the French Riviera.

Jazz-à-Juan at Juan-les-Pins is in a setting of 100-year-old pine trees and with the moonlit Mediterranean in the background. When this event began in 1963, the mayor was so astonished by the "hippie" audience, that he bussed them out of town; but they walked back.

The Roman arena in Nice has been an "entertainment center" for 2,000 years, but never anything as big as the 8-day jazz festival. About 50,000 people watch 75 concerts by 500 artists.

Hyères celebrates the fact that the reeds produced from local canes – Rico - are prized by the world’s finest musicians. Therefore, it's festivcal is called "Festival de l’Anche" (reed)

Here's a list of some of the jazz festivals on the French Riviera:

Barcelonette Beaulieu La Ciotat Draguignan (in the "back country") Juan-les-Pins Menton Nice Porquerolles (It's on an island!) "a beautiful "perched village" near St Tropez St.-Raphaël La Seyne Toulon

Also pioneer TV station WRGB (named for Walter R G Baker, the General Electric executive who started it and pioneer FM station WGFM. WGY is a "Clear Channel" 50,000 watt station from 1922 that once broadcast around the World at 500,000 watts (but "fried" too many cows near the transmitter and then FCC regulated).

Been a long time since Arlo Guthrie and Pete Seeger played concerts together.

Pete has been involved with saving the Hudson River and the new walkway on the old bridge. Alices's Restaurant (the local story anyway) is still around. See what somebody did to one of Arlo's songs!

The Fantasticks
The Fantasticks


There were no opening night jitters at the Sullivan Street Playhouse in Greenwich Village, where the cast of The Fantasticks prepared to celebrate the show's 41st birthday on Wednesday, May 3, 2001. On that day, the Fantasticks, the longest running show of any kind in the United States, and the longest running musical in the world, presented its 16,875th performance. The show finally closed January 13, 2002, after 17,162 performances.

Before the mud of Woodstock there were the love songs of The Fantasticks. Before Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon, before Elizabeth Taylor received an Academy Award for Butterfield 8, and before Wilt Chamberlain completed the first of his seven consecutive years as basketball's top scorer, "Try To Remember" and "Soon It's Gonna Rain" from The Fantasticks, were part of our national culture. The Fantasticks has charmed audiences at the Sullivan Street Playhouse in Greenwich Village ever since Dwight Eisenhower was president. Each generation from bobby-soxers to flower children to babyboomers, to cyberkids have embraced the universality of the show.

Eight times a week, the story unfolded, radiating a timeless sweet and sunniness: the starry-eyed boy and girl next door fall in love, yearn for the dangerous attractions of the world outside, then opt instead for fulfillment in each other's arms and in hearth and home.

Casablanca Casablanca is a 1942 film set during World War II in the Vichy-controlled Moroccan city of Casablanca. The film was directed by Michael Curtiz, and stars Humphrey Bogart as Rick and Ingrid Bergman as Ilsa. It focuses on Rick's conflict between, in the words of one character, love and virtue: he must choose between his love for Ilsa and his need to do the right thing by helping her husband, Resistance hero Victor Laszlo, escape from Casablanca and continue his fight against the Nazis.

The film was an immediate hit, and it has remained consistently popular ever since. Critics have praised the charismatic performances of Bogart and Bergman, the chemistry between the two leads, the depth of characterisation, the taut direction, the witty screenplay and the emotional impact of the work as a whole.

liz claiborne Liz Claiborne

Elizabeth (Liz) Claiborne was from a New Orleans family, but since her father worked in Belgium, she was born in 1929 in Brussels. She studied at the Fine Arts School and Painter's Studio, in Belgium. She also studied at the Nice Academy in France and later on in the USA.

In 1949, she won a HARPERS BAZAAR Jacques Heim design contest, which entitled her to travel and sketch in Europe. On her return to New York, she joined Tina Leser where she worked for two years. Later she worked at Omar Kiam where she was design assistant to Ben Reig.
Liz married Ben Schultz in 1950 but that marriage ended in divorce. She had a son named Alexander. She married Arthur Ortenberg in 1957.
In 1954 Liz started up as a New York free-lance designer.
In 1960 she began to design for the Youth Guild Inc, a division of Jonathan Logan. She worked here for 16 years.
During the 1960;s she was one of the many designers who helped promote the idea of removing the strict classifications of clothes for specific occasions, by designing a complete wardrobe of mix-and-match separates.
In 1976, Claiborne started up her own company, along with her husband Art Ortenberg, and their friends Leonard Boxer and Jerome Chaze. This went public in 1981 and now employs around 8,000 people. The Net sales in 2000 were over $ 3 billion. For nearly 30 years the Liz Claiborne company has produced predominantly youthful, fashion-conscious clothes. Her forte has been casual, separates-based working wardrobes, sold in a medium-price range.
In 1980 her innovative designs were so successful that she became the first woman in the US fashion industry to be named "Entrepreneur of the Year". Merrill Lynch described her company as a "case history of success".
Liz was awarded the CFDA designer of the year award in 1985.
In 1989, when she reached 60, Liz personally retired from active work in the company although she still keeps an eye on the house that bears her name. The house is still a billion dollar concern going into the 21st century.
The Liz Claiborne Corporation controls an estimated one-third of the $ 10 billion US market for womens sportswear, and sells through 3500 retailers in the US. It has acquired several other designer houses, mostly those started by women, such as Sigrid Olsen and Dana Buchman.

ec-bp.com The Forum for Supply Chain Integration

ec-bp was established in 2005 as the advocate for lowering the barriers to the adoption of EDI, and our email newsletter has been published every month since that time. Our focus has expanded beyond EDI to encompas the full gamut of supply chain practices and technologies. In addition, our readership has grown to become the largest of any similarly focused publication, and has expanded to include more than 90,000 professionals involved in nearly every aspect of the supply chain.

Today’s supply chain is more than simple transport of EDI documents. The complexity of maintaining compliance with trading partners, managing the ever increasing amount of data, and analyzing that data to drive constant improvement in processes and service take supply chain professionals far beyond the basics of mapping EDI documents.
