While he was still in his twenties, Horace Tapscott gave up a successful career in Lionel Hampton’s band and returned to his home in Los Angeles to found the Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra, a community arts group that focused on providing affordable, community-oriented jazz and jazz training. Over the course of almost forty years, the Arkestra, together with the related Union of God’s Musicians and Artists Ascension (UGMAA) Foundation, were at the forefront of the vital community-based arts movements in black Los Angeles.

Un corps a été retrouvé dans une canalisation du barrage de Mulholland à Los Angeles. Pour les policiers sur place, pas de doute, il s’agit d’un camé, mort par overdose. Mais l’inspecteur Harry Bosch du LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) n’est pas d’accord. Meadows, il l’a connu, vingt plus tôt, au Vietnam, quand ils faisaient l’un et l’autre partie de la compagnie chargée de « nettoyer » les tunnels creusés par l’armée vietcong. Des « rats de tunnel », qui s’enfonçaient dans les ténèbres, la peur au ventre, couteau et lampe à la main, pour tuer des soldats ennemis qui avaient leur âge. Premier roman publié par Michael Connelly, Les Egouts de Los Angeles est un coup de maître. C’est aussi l’acte de naissance de Hieronymus (Harry) Bosch, fils d’une prostituée assassinée, policier au sale caractère, alcoolique, en butte à sa hiérarchie et en guerre contre la débauche de la métropole californienne.

Making Music in Los Angeles: Transforming the Popular
Publisher: University of California Press | ISBN: 0520251393 | edition 2007 | PDF | 392 pages | 1,32 mb

In this fascinating social history of music in Los Angeles from the 1880s to 1940, Catherine Parsons Smith ventures into an often neglected period to discover that during America's Progressive Era, Los Angeles was a center for making music long before it became a major metropolis. She describes the thriving music scene over some sixty years, including opera, concert giving and promotion, and the struggles of individuals who pursued music as an ideal, a career, a trade, a business–or all those things at once. Smith demonstrates that music making was closely tied to broader Progressive Era issues, including political and economic developments, the new roles played by women, and issues of race, ethnicity, and class…

Los Angeles Houses

Cristina Montes "Los Angeles Houses"
Te Neues Publishing Company | 2002-11 | ISBN: 3823855948 | 400 pages | PDF | 13.0 MB

Architecture is perhaps not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Los Angeles, but there’s no doubt that the city has its own unique style. Large in scale, its rolling, densely lit nightscape suggests the pockets of heavy population that spread out from downtown. In fact, most people from LA don’t actually live there, but in a suburb.

The result of all this suburban living is a hugely diverse residential area with spectacular houses in the hills and canyons, surrounded by trees and stunning views of the city. This book examines some of the highlights of domestic living around Los Angeles, and points out some of the major influences: Art Deco, Spanish, and contemporary architecture; spacious, light-filled rooms; and plenty of wood, steel and concrete. It examines how the city’s flamboyant past has shaped the landscape, as well as how cutting-edge architects and interior designers continue to create exciting new styles and structures. Acclaimed architects such as Richard Meier are featured here along with firms such as Bobrow Thomas & Associates, Legorreta and Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates. Filled with photographs, floor plans, sketches, and informative text, this collection of stunning houses proves that the City of Angels is making its mark in the world of home design.
