BWW Reviews: With His Smooth, Swinging Style, MARCUS GOLDHABER Is a Resonant Delight at 54 BelowBWW Reviews: With His Smooth, Swinging Style, MARCUS GOLDHABER Is a Resonant Delight at 54 Below
by Alix Cohen - Jul 27, 2015

Marcus Goldhaber wears his mantle lightly. Emulating such as Chet Baker, Hoagy Carmichael, and Fred Astaire—those artists who most often sounded nonchalant, yet polished-- the vocalist offers pared down (not simplistic) interpretations of American Songbook/jazz numbers with emotional translucence, as well as authoring his own fine contributions to the oeuvre. I dare you to distinguish those from songs originating in the 1940s and 1950s. With Free and Easy: Livin' on Swing Street at 54 Below (July 25), Goldhaber takes us on a personal walking tour of musical influence. Material is varied yet sustains a distinct style. The vocalist is unhurried (even when up-tempo), mindful of lyrics, and elegantly restrained. He seems comfortable on stage and refreshingly sincere. (more...)

Prize Winning Journalist Ron Argo Promotes 1960's Era Civil Rights Historical ThrillerPrize Winning Journalist Ron Argo Promotes 1960's Era Civil Rights Historical Thriller
by BWW News Desk - Jul 10, 2015

The author returns to his childhood in this fictional account and takes readers into the heart of an Alabama town held captive by the blind hatred of the KKK. 'A profound and heartbreakingly real' [Kirkus] novel. The teenage narrator breathes life into that violent setting and pays homage to the tragedies and hardships of both black and white Southerners trying to thrive in a wicked, segregationist town. Young Sonny Poe is trapped in a dead-end life of poverty and prejudice. Horrified after witnessing a lynching in the midnight woods, Sonny turns shy of anyone he suspects is a Klansman; soon he meets and befriends a progressive doctor with a troubled past and a crusading spirit who's trying to help end abuse against the local community of Negroes. The headstrong teenager commits himself to 'Doctor Joe' and his cause even as both suffer betrayals, beatings, arrest and finally exile in a story that can only end in tragedyand hope. This is a story of immense tension that pulsates with violence, love, betrayal and humor as it rushes through the forebodingness of one of America's most pressing historical moments toward a shocking climax. The Civil Rights Movement forms the backbone of 'The Sum of His Worth,' but its strength comes from the voice of its young narrator and its strongest theme lies in the caveats of moral reckoning in a 'free' society. Praise for 'The Sum of His Worth': 'Argo successfully creates a profound, multilayered tapestry that's full of nuance. [His] first-person perspective creates a fragile aura around the unfolding events, and makes them wholly unpredictable ... The authentic dialogue is especially effective; each restrained syllable conveys as much as a five-page soliloquy ... In a style that's evocative of S.E. Hinton's classic works, with a dash of Daniel Woodrell's Southern grit, [Argo's] novel is an engrossing, heartbreakingly real novel of the South' - Kirkus Reviews 'The Sum of His Worth is a work of serious literary fiction, a coming-of-age story set in a time of national upheaval ... rich in ambiance, descriptive detail, and incident ... My interest never flagged in this convincing, meaningful, and deeply immersive tale.' Ron Terpening, author of Nine Days in October and Tropic of Fear. 'Argo's fiction rings chillingly true.' The San Diego Union 'Ron Argo's depiction of Alabama in the late 50s and early 60s is as unrelenting as a shutter click, the image clear and unforgiving. From grits and okra to the horror show of white robes and burning crosses, the images are spot on perfect. So are the characters ... No reader will fail to come out of it unchanged.' Sharon Skains, author of Waltzing with the Devil 'Jim Crow was interwoven with growing up in small-town Southern life. Argo has captured this nuance ... Here, courage is not a single act, but an ongoing commitment that can separate one from everything that is deeply loved.' Colonel Michael Moran, USMC (Ret) The Sum of His Worth is available in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: The Sum of His Worth By Ron Argo Publisher: Cliff Edge Publishing Published: May 2014 ISBN: 978-0989403573 ASIN: B00A3K3A3G Pages: 376 Genre: Historical Fiction For review copies, author interviews, or more information please contact: Ron Argo Email: argostein (at) cox.net Website: http://www.ronargo.com Ttwitter: https://twitter.com/wordpecker Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ron.argo.3 (more...)

That's right, a real community, one that boasts a bevy of exceedingly real and likeable characters. Miranda also created a varied score with ballads & traditional pop melodies and salsa meshed together with rap.
