A Hologram for the King: A New by Brand: Vintage
Product Description
A Hologram for the King takes us around the world to show how one man fights to hold himself and his splintering family together in the face of the global economy’s gale-force winds. In a rising Saudi Arabian city, far from weary, recession-scarred America, a struggling businessman pursues a last-ditch attempt to stave off foreclosure, pay his daughter’s college tuition, and finally do something great. This taut, richly layered, and elegiac novel is a powerful evocation of our contemporary moment — and a moving story of how we got here.

Penetrating Old Light
Product Description
Audacious. What else would you call it? The willingness to forgo the expected, to ignore the labels, to play music that is one hundred percent your own...

Drummer Dave King and the music he creates are very much audacious. He continues to laugh off expectations. In doing so, King has developed his own musical language and style. Combine jazz and rock? The avant-garde and country? Why try to box him in? It s much more entertaining to let King roam.

Far from traveling solo, King has always collaborated with like-minded conspirators, including collectives The Bad Plus and Happy Apple, Tim Berne, Craig Taborn, Jeff Beck, and many other individuals and groups that have wryly smeared the palette of American music, creating sounds that are wholly original. King certainly plays with an eclectic bunch, but the groups that evolve are always focused while being entertaining and free-spirited. This brings us to his latest ensemble, The Dave King Trucking Company, and their new record, Good Old Light (Sunnyside, 2011).

The Trucking Company is King s Americana group. More specifically, this is the drummer s take on if the great Nashville bands of the '60s and '70s could improvise and were Coltrane fanatics. The legendary studio bands of Nashville are renowned for their incredible musicianship, tireless work ethic, and ability to play in any style requested. The thought of these roots musicians having a late-night jam session and blowing on Crescent isn t too far-fetched, but King obviously has his own spin on things.

The group originally convened at the Walker Arts Center s Dave King retrospective concert, King for Two Days, in the spring of 2010. In addition to King, the group includes guitarist Erik Fratzke, bass player Adam Linz, and saxophonists Chris Speed and Brandon Wozniak. Fratzke is well-known for his collaboration in two other groups with King, Happy Apple and the Gang Font, and plays in a handful of other rock and jazz outfits. Speed is a veteran of the New York creative music scene, leading his own ensembles, owning his own record label, and playing in groups led by Tim Berne, John Hollenbeck, and Jim Black. Linz and Wozniak are two fabulous Minneapolis-based musicians who prove that excellent jazz performers exist outside of the Big Apple.

The CD begins with a quiet piano rumination played by King called April in Gary, showing the composer s ability to grab a listener regardless of instrument. You Can t Say Poem in Concrete is a bouncy, pop-ish tune featuring the two saxophonists playing against each other and culminating in a rousing solo by Wozniak. The declaratory I Am Looking for Strength has a direct melody reminiscent of gospel, a narrative solo by Speed, and a strong crescendo to glory.

Night Tram is a clattering, off-kilter shaker full of breaks and surprises including a bombastic solo by King. Fratzke s somber guitar leads into Payphones, a mellow lament with a Western swing. Hawk Over Traffic charges in with grinding drums and tense bass as the saxophones and guitar soar overhead. Linz s lovely bass playing is featured on Church Clothes w/ Wallet Chain, a slow introspective ballad. The Road Leads Home saunters in with quiet propulsion then suddenly picks up Speed as the group races to the finish.

The Dave King Trucking Company is a perfect example of King s musical aesthetic of putting it all out there but being mindful of the tune. Good Old Light is about the songs but it is also about letting the musicians be individuals within them.

  • King of Russia

    Emblem Editions. 2012. ISBN: 9781551994154,1551994151. 264 pages.

    A revealing look preferential the Russian Super League by its first Canadian coach. Until now no Canadian had penetrated the coaching ranks of Russian hockey, but the year after the NHL lockout, Dave King became managing director coach of the Metallurg Magnitogorsk. From the beginning, King, Canada’s long-time national coach and former coach of both the Flames and Blue Jackets, realized he was in for an dare. His first meeting with team officials in a Vienna hotel lobby included six fast-talking Russians and the “bag-man” — assistant approximate manager Oleg Kuprianov, who always carried a little black bag full of U.S. one hundred dollar bills. The mission seemed simple enough: remain the old Soviet style combination play on offence, but improve the team’s defensive play — and win a Russian Super League Championship. Yet, as King’s date-book of his time in Russia reveals, coaching an elite Russian team is anything but simple. King of Russia details the world of Russian hockey from the innards everted, intimately acquainting us with the lives of key players, owners, managers, and fans, while granting us a unique perspective on life in an industrial town in the new Russia. And introducing us to Evgeni Malkin, Magnitogorsk’s important and the NHL’s newest phenomenon. From the Hardcover edition.
