Jazz, of course, had its origins in Africa and we often tend to think of the music’s journey as a one-way trip. It wasn’t, and isn’t now—for all of the inspiration Americans have drawn from African culture, musicians on the African continent have long found plenty from this side to push their own creative instincts in different directions. Nigerian drummer Tony Allen is best known as a key member of Fela Kuti’s ensembles during the ‘60s and ‘70s.
Bob Dylan: Trouble No More: The Bootleg Series Vol. 13/1979-1981Bob Dylan has courted controversy since the beginning of his career, whether walking off the set of The Ed Sullivan Show rather than sing a more user-friendly song or, of course, going electric at Newport and ruffling many a folkie feather. But to many of his most ardent supporters, the so-called Christian period of 1979–81 was the most baffling and misunderstood.
Cover of Brian Landrus Orchestra album Generations Although the previous small-group recordings by the multi-instrumentalist and composer Brian Landrus all bore a marked sophistication, there was nary a hint that he desired to expand into something as ambitious and formidable as what now comprises this orchestral production.
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".
