Yo! Check It Out!

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present.


1971: No Início era o Cascais Jazz...

Hoje faz 35 anos que se iniciou o primeiro festival de Jazz em Portugal e logo com um cartaz assustador, com nomes como Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett, Gary Bartz, Don Alias, Ornette Coleman, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden, Dexter Gordon, Thelonious Monk e Dizzy Gillespie. Foi certamente memorável por razões musicais, mas também o foi por outras, tantas vezes ligadas à música, veículo para a expressão de sentimentos e emoções humanas.

Bilder in mir

Joseph Georg Kornhäusel (* 13. November 1782 in Wien; † 31. Oktober 1860 ebenda) war ein österreichischer Architekt. Er gilt als herausragender Architekt der ersten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts und als einer der wichtigsten österreichischen Vertreter des Klassizismus, den er mit lokalen Traditionen verbindet. Sowohl die dem Donaukanal zugewandte Seite der Inneren Stadt von Wien als auch Baden bei Wien sind wesentlich von ihm geprägt.
