article: Porgy and Bess (Summertime with Miles Davis Porgy and Bess 1958)


Porgy and Bess

The folk opera Porgy and Bess is American composer George Gershwin’s most ambitious work. Controversial since its release in 1935 for its depiction of African Americans, it tells the story of Porgy, a crippled black man living in the slums of Charleston, South Carolina, and his attempts to rescue Bess from Crown, her pimp, and Sportin’ Life, a drug dealer. Which song from the show is one of the most popular cover songs ever, with an estimated 30,000 different versions recorded? More… Discuss

PARIS – François Hollande a prévenu vendredi que “la France n’en a pas terminé avec les menaces dont elle est la cible”, lors d’une allocution télévisée après le dénouement des deux prises d’otages.

La France, même si elle consciente d’avoir fait face, même si elle sait qu’elle peut disposer, avec les forces de sécurité, d’hommes et de femmes capables de courage et de bravoure, n’en a pas terminé avec les menaces dont elle est la cible. Je veux vous appeler à la vigilance, à l’unité et à la mobilisation”, a déclaré le président de la République.
