No one had any use for it. Genre Jazz. Styles Dixieland Early Jazz. Recording Date September 13, - September 14, Track Listing. Georgia on My Mind. The name of the song comes from the situation in which it was recorded.
The story was that Coltrane wrote and recorded this song in a matter of an hour. Despite the lack of ease of playing up-tempo jazz pieces on trombone, Curtis Fuller covers the entire range of his horn and shows that the trombone is just as versatile and can groove just as hard as any other horn. Morgan's trumpet is also dominant again and Jones always keeps perfect time like a metronome while adding tasteful phrases to add color to the songs.
Chambers also shows his soloing skills with a bowed bass solo. Kenny Drew's piano isn't shabby either. This fast-paced tune is what Coltrane plays best on, starting out with the sometimes or beat per minute bebop compositions of Dizzy Gillespie.
His solo on this song is a slower, more melodic version of his earth-shattering song "Countdown" from "Giant Steps". Everyone shines on this track. This ballad was composed by Jerome Kern and Johnny Mercer, but Coltrane proves that he can play beautifully on ballads such as this and make it his own just as much as any fast bebop tune.
This one starts out with the piano. Morgan and Fuller are wonderful on their solos in this song. The responses from the entire band are reminiscent of "Moment's Notice".
The curious story of the laugh track starts with one man who created the laugh track as a homemade piece of technology that took over the sound of television and then fell out of fashion with the rise of a more modern sense of humor. Apr 25, The Gander Airport in Newfoundland was once the easternmost airfield in North America, so when transatlantic air travel was new and difficult through the midth century, Gander played a critical role in getting people back and forth from Europe to America.
This made the tiny town of Gander an unlikely international hub, hosting the likes of Fidel Castro, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, and the Queen of England in the beautiful, mid-century modern lounge. Gander International Airport. Apr 18, The system categorizes natural hair types, and it's often referred to simply as "the hair chart. The chart spans straight, wavy, curly, and kinky hair. For Walker, the chart was all about selling his products.
People could use it to identify their hair type and then buy a complementary product. But the chart has gone way beyond his own hair care line and become a way some African-American people talk and think about hair. Not everyone thinks the categories are helpful, and some of the criticism has its roots far back in American history.
Apr 11, To this day, architects tend to turn their noses up at Las Vegas, or simply dismiss it as irrelevant to serious design theory. But as Denise Scott Brown discovered in the mids, there is so much to learn from Las Vegas about how to make architecture that speaks to people and not just to architects.
Lessons from Las Vegas. Apr 4, The battlefield has always been at the mercy of the climate, but there was a time in U. We tried to create it. Making it Rain. Mar 28, They are hulking, but graceful -- human-made whales that float in the air. For over a century, lighter-than-air vehicles have captured the public imagination, playing a recurring role in our dreams of alternate realities and futures that might have been.
In these visions, cargo and passengers traverse the globe in smoothly gliding aircraft, then dock elegantly at the mooring towers on top of Art Deco skyscrapers. Today, blimps are mostly just PR gimmicks, but for years, lighter-than-air crafts were seriously considered as the perfect design solution for all kinds of problems, at least in theory.
Airships and the Fut…. Mar 21, The way we draw our political districts has a huge effect on U. Drawing districts may be the most important design problem of representative democracy and this week FiveThirtyEight will guide us through the ways different states have tackled this problem. Mar 14, All around the country, there stands a figure so much a part of historical architecture and urban landscapes that she is rarely noticed.
In and beyond her time, she has represented many things, including truth, memory, seasons, the stars, and even the universe itself. Immortalized in iron, marble and gold, Audrey remains perched on high, quietly watching over cities from coast to coast.
Miss Manhattan. Mar 7, In the late s, the Ford Motor Company bought up millions of acres of land in Brazil. They loaded boats with machinery and supplies, and shipped them deep into the Amazon rainforest. Workers cut down trees and cleared the land and then they built a rubber plantation in the middle of one of the wildest places on earth.
He envisioned an industrial utopia. He paid his Brazilian workers good wages, at least for the region. Feb 28, The Bijlmermeer or Bijlmer, for short was built just outside of Amsterdam in the s. It was designed by modernist architects to be a "city of the future" with its functions separated into distinct zones.
To Modernists, it represented a vision of the city as a well-oiled machine Upon completion, it was a massive expanse of 31 concrete towers. There were 13, apartments, many of them unoccupied. Just sitting there, totally empty. Listen to Part 1 of this story here. Feb 21, It was called the Bijlmermeer, and it tested the lofty ideas of the International Congress of Modern Architecture on a grand scale. When it was over, no one would ever try it again.
Bijlmer City of the Future, Part 1. Feb 14, At the time, few American corporations used abstract symbols for their identification. Its graphic designer, Tom Geismar, has been a driving force in the field of design and graphic identity for over 60 years.
The influence of the firm he co-founded can be felt in logos you see every day. Feb 7, Then, in part two of the show, Avery Trufelman takes a closer look at eight current designs that have been turned into prototypes near the border in California. Border Wall Learn more about Radio Diaries.
Jan 31, In the s it looked like the beloved, year-old Cape Hatteras lighthouse was in danger. The sea was getting closer and threatening to swallow it up. And people were torn over what to do about it - they could move the lighthouse, or leave it in place and try to defend it against the forces of nature. For the next 30 years, the locals fought an intense political battle over this decision. Managed Retreat.
Jan 24, Cartoonist and theorist Scott McCloud has been making and thinking about comics for decades. This classic volume explores formal aspects of comics, the historical development of the medium, its fundamental vocabulary, and various ways in which these elements have been used. Scott McCloud breaks down some of the universals in comics and guides us through some of the comic books that pushed the art form forward.
Then we use that lens to look at graphic communication in the world at large. Jan 17, When air conditioning was invented in , it was designed to take out the humidity in the air so printers could run four color magazines, without the colors becoming offset due to the paper warping from moisture. A young engineer named Willis Carrier developed a system that pumps air over metal coils cooled with ammonia to pull moisture from the air, but it had a side effect -- it also made the air cooler.
Very quickly Carrier began to think about how it could be used beyond printing. Ultimately, air conditioning would dramatically change where people in the United States lived and the design of homes and other buildings. Thermal Delight.

Dec 13, In the early morning of August 5, , artist Richard Ankrom and a group of friends assembled on the 4th Street bridge over the freeway in Los Angeles. They had gathered to commit a crime. Years before, when Ankrom was driving through downtown Los Angeles, he was going to merge onto the I-5 North. But he missed the exit and got lost. It was clear to Ankrom that the California Department of Transportation had made a mistake.

Car companies, safety advocates, and regulators comb through this data constantly, looking for patterns that help them understand how and why people die in car wrecks.
In turn, this information helps designers and engineers create safer vehicles and roadways. The data informs all kinds of design decisions around car safety — everything from speed limits to mandatory seat belts.
But this culture of heavily regulated, data-driven, auto-safe….

Hero Props. Back in the s, St. Louis was segregated and The Ville was one of the only African-American neighborhoods in the city. The community was prosperous. Black-owned businesses thrived and the neighborhood was filled with the lovely, ornate brick homes the city has become famous for.
But driving around The Ville today, the neighborhood looks very different. Some buildings are simply rundown or abandoned, but others are missing large chunks entirely. Walls have disappeared.
The bricks are gone. Dollhouses of St. Louis Support Radiotopia. Nov 1, New York was built at the mouth of the Hudson River, and that fertile estuary environment was filled with all kinds of marine life. But one creature in particular shaped the landscape: the oyster. It is estimated that trillions of oysters once surrounded New York City, filtering bacteria and acting as a natural buffer against storm surges. Over time, pollution and other environmental changes killed off that oyster population.
But a group of landscape architects are designing artificial oyster reefs to help protect the city and foster a better relationship between the natural and built environment along this coastal edge. Oyster-tecture Support Radiotopia.

With so many industries and people crossing borders with so much fluidity, why has the U. The answer is complicated. Half Measures. Oct 11, It spans roughly 50 blocks, which is about a fifth of the entire downtown area of Los Angeles. The sidewalks are mostly occupied by makeshift homes. A dizzying array of tarps and tents stretch out for blocks, improvised living structures sitting side by side.
The Containment Plan. Oct 4, Among the most important advances in sports technology, few can compete with the invention of the sports bra. But their breasts presented an obstacle. Bouncing breasts hurt, as women getting in on the jogging craze found out.
Then some friends in Vermont had an idea to stitch a couple jock straps together to build a contraption to keep things in place.
The Athletic Brassiere. Ponte City Tower, the brutalist cylindrical high-rise that towers over Johannesburg, has gone from a symbol of white opulence to something far more complicated.

It has the public and the media wondering: how will recipients react to getting this unconditional source of income.
The Finnish Experiment. Sep 13, Coal miner stickers started out as little advertisements that the manufacturers of mining equipment handed out. Even before the late s, when mining safety laws started requiring reflective materials underground, miners used those stickers to stay visible to each other in the dark mines.
As time passed, the stickers evolved. And the mine companies themselves started printing stickers for their workers. Stickers went from simple ads to signifying an identity. And as their role changed, stickers also came to serve as a kind of currency among miners. Coal Hogs Work Safe. Sep 6, Computer algorithms now shape our world in profound and mostly invisible ways. They filter what we see on social media, sort through resumes, and evaluate job performance.
They inform prison sentences and monitor our health. Most of these algorithms have been created with good intentions. The goal is to replace subjective judgments with objective measurements. She has studied number theory, worked as a data scientist at start-ups, and built predictive algorithms for various private enterprises.
The outer bouts, upper and lower, have both been cut, so the precise original shape has been lost, but the central area is pristine and very beautiful.
