Poetry. Music. When Thomas Hardy listens to Louis Armstrong, music reaches out to poetry across centuries and oceans. Here, a "dreamer at a loss" passes notes to a classmate, "cards of absolute equivocation" that "run through all the scales in all the keys," from "a man of many hats" to Osip Mandelstam's tambourine, from the dream of a monk to a broken traffic light.

Bill Coleman was one of the most important jazz trumpeters of the swing era. Born in France in 1909, he moved to New York in 1927. Over the next few years he made his name playing with many of the top bandleaders, including Luis Russell, Benny Carter and Fats Waller. In 1935 he returned to France and performed with Lucky Millinder. He spent the war years in New York, playing with, among others, Andy Kirk, Mary Lou Williams, Sy Oliver and Billy Kyle, before returning to Paris in 1941 to lead his own band. Bill Coleman toured widely and the book contains fascinating anecdotes about his trips to India, Egypt, the Philippines and Japan. He died in 1981 and Trumpet Story was published in French in that year.

Die Cellospielerin

Roman

Eines Tages steht eine junge Frau vor der Tür eines Münchner Komponisten, Judit aus Budapest. Sie möchte ihrem Cellospiel den letzten Schliff geben und glaubt an die hohen Ideale der Kunst. Der Komponist dagegen verdient sein Geld mit Erkennungsmelodien für Fernsehserien und plagt sich nebenher mit dem Projekt einer Mandelstam-Oper ab. Aber Judits irrlichterndes Wesen macht ein geregeltes Arbeiten zusehends unmöglich; und ihre gar nicht so kleine Familie, die ihr bald nachfolgt, bringt den Komponisten an den Rand eines Nervenzusammenbruchs. Ihn, der im Leben die Kunst sucht und in der Kunst das Leben nicht findet, wissen auch die Frauen nicht zu erlösen, die ihn umgeben. Am Schluß ist die Oper noch immer nicht geschrieben; nur die Fernsehmelodien werden jetzt auch in den Ländern des Ostens ausgestrahlt.
