In concert, jazz drummer T. S. Monk plays his own compositions, but he always makes sure to include a few pieces by the pioneering pianist Thelonious Monk, who happened to be his father. But the younger Monk insisted that nepotism has nothing to do with that choice. “I play his music not because he’s my father,” said T. S. Monk. “I play his music because it’s still so hip. He wrote some of the most intellectually demanding compositions in jazz.
Sometimes a painting is just a painting. But not when it comes to “Art.”In the Tony-winning play by French author Yasmina Reza, a man named Serge proudly spends a huge amount of money buying an absurd piece of modern art: an absolutely white painting. Serge’s one friend, Marc, is appalled. Another friend, Yvan, has conflicted feelings, compounded by his uncertainties about his impending marriage. Tempers flare. Egos are bruised.
Shelby Lynne started recording in the late 1980s. Her younger sister and fellow singer-songwriter Allison Moorer started performing in the mid-1990s. Over the years, the two musicians have periodically appeared on stage together. So why did they wait until 2017 to release a CD of duets, “Not Dark Yet”? And why are they only now touring together? Moorer offered one answer. “I’m a big believer in doing things when they feel right,” she said. “It might have worked out fine if we had done it earlier.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
