KATIE THIROUX Singer, bassist, and composer Thiroux has been approved by no less an authority than Quincy Jones (at whose jazz club in Dubai she spent her summer). Her second disc, “Off Beat” (out Sept. 12), finds her singing with appealing directness (those words mean something) and playing with an inventive swing on a variety of less-familiar standards, including Ellington’s “Happy Reunion,” Frank Loesser’s “Brotherhood of Man,” and the title track, a June Christy favorite.
NEWPORT, R.I. — Jazz is history. Not in the sense of “over,” but in the sense of a living tradition — the music is always paying that history homage, consciously or not. Saturday, the middle day of the weekend-long Newport Jazz Festival, had history in abundance. Most explicitly, it had Benny Golson, now 88, one of the living legends of the music, author of some of its indelible classics, playing a few of them and talking about them just as much. No matter, it was great talk, and great playing.
Maybe it was the tattooed mom with her teenage daughter. Or maybe it was the woman with the “I Do It for the Dirty Looks” T-shirt. But there was definitely a feminist vibe at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion Sunday night. Then again, it probably had something to do with the headliners — Garbage (b. circa 1993) and Blondie (b. circa 1974), both with charismatic frontwomen and both bands, by evidence of this show, built to last.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
