Linda Ronstadt's voice is a treasure whether it be in song, spoken or written word. From a teenage fan in love fast forwarded 45 years she has been with me in my dreams, consoled me in my sorrows, made me laugh out loud with her wit and charmed me with her warmth and natural beauty. Selfishly, I hope she continues with this new found talent and takes this fan along to the end of my days. I couldn't imagine a world without Linda in it and wish to thank her for all the wonderful moments that add up to a lifetime. ronstadtfanaz
I can't wait to read the rest. Not only a personal story, but the background of life in the Old Pueblo decades ago is fascinating.
Thank you so much for this excerpt from Ms Ronstadt's book! Great reading.
Saw the 9/8 evening performance. Press-Coffman was reciting her lines; the acting was not effective. Didion's writing, which is terrific, carried the performance but barely. I was very disappointed. What's the point of memorizing such a beautiful script if you can't emote except, as Dorothy Parker might say, to run the gamut from A to B?
Scarpia, I hope you've discovered our new online music listings at http://tucsonweekly.getn2.it/. You'll find advance coverage of each classical music event complete with bios of featured artists and streaming music or online video clips as they are available. It's all music in our view, and now we're able to give classical artists the same kind of advance coverage we've only been able to give rock acts in the recent past. In fact, http://tucsonweekly.getn2.it/ has even broadened our rock, jazz, blues and folk coverage substantially. Watch for your favorite live classical music announced at http://tucsonweekly.getn2.it/ as the season unfolds. For example, check out this announcement of the first Arizona Friends of Chamber Music concert this year: The Jerusalem Quartet on Wednesday, Oct. 16.
And, not incidentally, check out the Krueger Brothers concert announcement right here on http://tucsonweekly.getn2.it/ (Be sure to click the tab for the opening act, the Dreadnutts, too!)
Thanks for reading Tucson Weekly!
I hear you. While not a classical event per se, the Kruger Brothers' repertoire spans classical music. Here's is a good example of that (snippets from Appalachian Concerto composed by Jens Kruger):
Continuing coverage of "classical" events would be nice.
Very nice article. Many of the artist at our live work spaces where excited to see so many of our friends listed in your article. It is so very exciting to be a part of Tucson Art Scene. Looking forward to the 'season'.
Thank you for a lovely piece of journalism.
Not quite "everything artistic happening in Tucson". The Kruger Brothers will be performing with the Bob Meighan and the Dreadnutts opening the show at the Vail Theatre of the Arts on September 12. This beautiful, state-of-the-art theatre gets its name from the Vail School District which owns and operates it, but it is inside the Tucson City Limits! Details, directions, videos, tickets, and more are at www.vtota.org.
As excited as I am to read Son of Gun, I was dismayed to see the memoir called a novel right below the headline.
Tim thanks for this story about A World Separated by Borders...
Read Casey Tefertillers "Wyatt Earp : The Life Behind the Legend" alongside this if you want to see the man, not just the criminal.
Fantastic. Otherwise mundane scapes come alive. You really have to see these prints in person. The power of old film is the print. And the printer. I hope she did them all on her own.
Let's just divert the remaining puddles of the Colorado River to Southern Arizona --- let a thousand trees grow and flowers bloom --- fly fishing in the Santa Cruz river -- tubing --- fantasies ...
wow, this looks like a great book. I often wonder how we can sustain this life as it gets hotter and drier every year.
Will we ever learn? Why in the world would we let the San Pedro River be pumped dry? Why would we listen to the ridiculous claims that by pumping enough groundwater for an additional 7,000 homes nears it's banks there will be no impact on the flow of the river. Do they (the developers) think we are that stupid? Or do they think we are that greedy and short sighted?
This looks awesome. The loss of riparian habitat in SE AZ due to groundwater pumping is heartbreaking. And yes, I'm fully aware that by living here I am part of the problem.
Excellent review, Christine! Certainly piqued my interest! Thank you!
Margaret, I really like your approach with this review: identifying and summarizing a common theme with much of the artwork (i.e. birds), and then then sorting it all out with an ad hoc "awards ceremony". You should take it a step further, and create a "Regan" award for each of those categories. "And the winner of the Regan for 'Best Vacation' goes to....!" And then email the winner a little jpg file of the award graphic. ;)
