Group Description

Forties Femme - Team Leader

"The history of China is told in traditional historical records that refer as far back as the Three sovereigns and five emperors about 5,000 years ago, supplemented by archaeological records dating to the 16th century BC. China is one of the world's oldest continuous civilizations. Turtle shells with markings reminiscent of ancient Chinese writing from the Shang Dynasty have been carbon dated to around 1500 BC."

"The modest Dallas condominium she left behind at 2525 Turtle Creek was more than a little mysterious. Not that the multilevel garden complex is unpleasant; it is helpful to know, given Simpson’s history, that it was constructed to evoke the world renowned Las Brisas resort in Acapulco. But her place was low ceilinged and dim, and her furnishings—the formal dining room table, the upholstery-matching draperies, the Baccarat candelabras, and the very large, very striking portraits of Simpson herself—suggested a big life compressed at the end into a very small space."

"Live at the Fillmore is the latest recorded evidence of how age and experience--along with smoking, drinking, and God knows what else--can eviscerate the larynx while deepening the soul. Billie Holiday's 1958 Lady in Satin remains the ur-text of cathartic vocal disintegration. Joni Mitchell's Travelogue, George Harrison's Brainwashed, Bob Dylan's Time Out of Mind and Love and Theft, and Johnny Cash's American Recordings IV (with its devastating, moribund cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt") also reveal how debilitated vocal chords can actually enhance the listener's experience. To vocal students everywhere."
