by Tiffany Martinez As many are probably aware, American pop icon Whitney Houston passed away earlier this month. The singer, pianist and one-time actress was found submerged in bathtub at a Beverly Hills hotel room around 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11. Twitter broke the news of the death almost 30 minutes before the reports were released by mainstream media. Cameras captured fans across America in a sort of hysteria as they each mourned the death of the 48-year-old star in their own unique way. All of this was much anticipated — the social media power house, twitter, bringing news of her death to the world before any other media outlet — fans across the United States feeling as though another celebrity death is “one more sign” that we are closer to the end of our days. Even the way in which the body of Houston was found, as she had admitted on several occasions to having drug problems and suffering from depression, was likely in the event of her death. So what … [Read more...] about Aggie CentralEditorial: Controversy arises over Houston’s Half-staff honoring

Supermodel Twiggy, Python Michael Palin and England manager Gareth Southgate are among more than 1,000 people awarded in the New Year Honours 2019. The list celebrates heroes - from 43 responders to terror attacks, to the divers who stunned the world in the Thai cave rescue. But there are also awards for Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan, Downton Abbey's Jim Carter and authors Philip Pullman and Margaret Atwood. And a cronyism row is set to brew after Theresa May rewarded big business chiefs who just happen to back her Brexit deal.

Linda Oh plays the bass. Acoustic and electric, in trios, quartets, quintets, and sextets led by some of the best musicians in contemporary jazz. She’s 31, was born in Malaysia and raised in Australia, is of Chinese descent, and has lived in New York City, still the epicenter of jazz, for the past twelve years. In that time, through hard work, pluck (sorry), and great skill, her reputation has steadily grown, and she’s quietly become a star in jazz circles. She has sat in on countless recording sessions, gigs all around town at venues small — where they pass around a tin can — and large, and increasingly tours the country and the world. Linda Oh is a sideman, or rather, a sidewoman. She is, you might say, almost famous. Like many sidemen, Oh is also an aspiring bandleader. But if jazz is a notoriously tough sell, bass players are even tougher. Essential as the instrument is to time and rhythm, and as voluptuous its presence on the bandstand, it often fades … [Read more...] about Almost Famous, Almost Broke: How Does a Jazz Musician Make It in New York Now?
