Long DescriptionFred Astaire: one of the great jazz artists of the twentieth century? Astaire is best known for his brilliant dancing in the movie musicals of the 1930s, but in Music Makes Me , Todd Decker argues that Astaire’s work as a dancer and choreographer particularly in the realm of tap dancingmade a significant contribution to the art of jazz. Decker examines the full range of Astaire’s work in filmed and recorded media, from a 1926 recording with George Gershwin to his 1970 blues stylings on television, and analyzes Astaire’s creative relationships with the greats, including George and Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, and Johnny Mercer. He also highlights Astaire’s collaborations with African American musicians and his work with lesser known professionalsarrangers, musicians, dance directors, and performers.

A wind storm took the power out again but only for a few hours.

Yes, we do have backup power to prevent the servers from crashing, but after a short time those battery reserves run out so we always shut everything down as soon as the power goes out. This prevents equipment and data damage. 

The power company had the power back on after only 3 hours. The power was out from about 1pm to 4pm pacific time today.
