Juventino Rosas

José Juventino Policarpo Rosas Cadenas was a Mexican composer and violinist. Rosas was born in Santa Cruz, Guanajuato renamed Santa Cruz de Galeana and still into Santa Cruz de Juventino Rosas. Rosas began his musical career as a street musician. In 1884-85 and 1888 he enrolled into the conservatory, both times leaving it without taking any examination. Most of Rosas's compositions—among them "Sobre las Olas" —were issued by Wagner y Levien and Nagel Sucesores in Mexico City. In the late 1880s, Rosas is reported to be a member of a military band, in 1891 he worked in Michoacán. In 1892–93 Rosas lived near Monterrey before joining an orchestra in 1893 for a tour through the USA. During this tour, the group performed at the World Columbian Exposition World's Fair in Chicago, Illinois. In 1894, Rosas went for a several-month tour to Cuba with an Italian-Mexican ensemble, where he came down with major health problems, having to stay behind in Surgidero de Batabanó; as a result of spinal myelitis, he died there at the age of 26.

Fifteen years in 1909, his remains were brought back to Mexico. Rosas is one of the best known Mexican composers of salon music, as well as the one with the highest number of editions abroad and of sound recordings, the first of them released in 1898. Rosas's best known work is "Sobre las Olas" or "Over the Waves", it was first published in Mexico in 1888. It remains popular as a classic waltz, has found its way into New Orleans Jazz, Bluegrass Music and Western music and Tejano music. In the United States "Sobre las Olas" has a cultural association with funfairs, ice skating and trapeze artists, as it was one of the tunes available for Wurlitzer's popular line of fairground organs; the music was used for the tune "The Loveliest Night of the Year", sung by Ann Blyth in MGM's film The Great Caruso. It remains still popular with country and old-time fiddlers in the United States; the 1950 film Over the Waves was based on his life.

Civitanova Marche

Civitanova Marche is a comune in the Province of Macerata in the Italian region Marche, located about 40 kilometres southeast of Ancona and about 25 km east of Macerata. Civitanova Marche borders the municipalities: Montecosaro, Porto Sant'Elpidio, Potenza Picena and Sant'Elpidio a Mare, it counts the hamlets of Civitanova Alta, Maranello, San Marone and Santa Maria Apparente. The territory is heterogeneous. In the southern Risorgimento and Santa Maria Apparente districts, the city lays on the Chienti river floodplain, formed in the Holocene. Along the coast, the Centro and San Gabriele districts lay on coastal plain sediments; the area is 46,07 km². The altitude ranges from 3 to 223 meters above sea level; the typical "a pettine" shape that distinguishes Marche hills is recognizable. According to the climatic averages between 1971-2000, the average temperatures of the coldest month, January, is 5.3 °C, while in the hottest month, August, it is 22,6 °C. The annual average precipitation is about 740 mm, with a relative minimum in spring and a maximum in fall.

Annual average relative humidity is 76%, with a minimum of 71% in July and a maximum of 82% in November. Prehistorical settlements discovered by archaeologists show us that people used to live in Civitanova since Palaeolithic. Civitanova was founded around the 8th century BC as Cluana by the Piceni Italic tribe, at the mouth of the Chienti river; the Romans captured it in 268 BC, and, in 50 AD, founded a new settlement, Cluentis Vicus on a hill near the sea. During the Migration Period, old Cluana was destroyed by the Visigoths and much of the population took refuge in the Vicus. Cluentis Vicus is mentioned in 1009 as Civitas Nova, Civitatem Novam e Nova Civitas. People go live near the coast, on the San Marone hill, where there is a memorial dedicated to the martyr San Marone protector of Civitanova. With the arrival of the Franks, Cluentis Vicus became a feudal town. In 1075, the Aldonesi family, together with the bishop of Fermo Pietro I, guaranteed the defense of the city; the it was under the da Varano, Malatesta and Visconti.

In 1440, under Francesco Sforza, a new line of walls was built, while a fortress was built to protect the port. The city, attacked by Turk pirates, riven by internal feuds and by the plague, started to decay from the 16th century. In 1551 pope Julius III named Cesarini a Duke. In 1674 the family took the name Cesarini–Sforza, following the marriage between Livia Cesarini and Federico Sforza of Santa Fiora; this event began a period of renewal: a new wall for the "Città Alta" was built, as well as new roads and palaces. During the 17th and the 18th centuries, the "Città Alta" was renovated, the main square was expanded and the church of San Paolo was built, while the civic tower was substituted by the clock tower; the port was expanded. In 1782 Civitanova had 6057 inhabitants, of whom 5717 lived in Città Alta, 65 in San Marone and 275 at the port. On 12 December 1828, pope Leo XII conceded the title of City to the two towns, Civitanova Alta and Civitanova Porto. In 1833 the city had 8,400 inhabitants.

In 1841 construction began on the port's first church, Saint Paul, completed in 1853. In 1913 the Civitanova Porto district was established as an independent municipality and in 1938 Civitanova Porto e Civitanova Alta were united under the name of Civitanova Marche. Following nearby industrial development, Civitanova Porto became a popular location for summer resorts lived by the noble families of the hinterland. Count Pieralberto Conti built a racecourse and, in 1910, a house in Liberty style; the city developed into a popular vacation centre. The Ducal Palace Cesarini Sforza was built circa 1550 atop the base of a pre-existing building. Construction started about a year prior to the cession of Civitanova by Pope Julius III to the Roman noble Giuliano Cesarini in payment for a debt contracted by the Apostolic Camera; the interior conserves some 16th-century frescoes by Pellegrino Tibaldi. In 1674, the palace acquired the Sforza label, when Livia Cesarini married Federico Sforza of Santa Fiora.

The palace was refurbished in the 19th century. It is situated in Piazza della Libertà of Civitanova Alta. Palazzo Cesarini-Sforza was built in 1862 upon the remains of a 15th-century fortress; the Palace overlooks "Piazza XX Settembre" gardens which conserve the fountain that once decorated the centre of the square. Built in 1867 according to the project of engineer Guglielmo Prosperi and realized by the Basile brothers, it has three floors oriented towards the square of Civitanova Alta; the ground floor, characterized by a loggia with the ingress at the centre, hosts the Roman gravestone where ancient Civitanova name Cluentensis Vicus is carved. Wide stairs lead to the board room frescoed with Aeneid depictions dedicated to the poet Annibal Caro as well as portraits of noble citizens. Over the gardens of Piazza XX Settembre there are the elegant liberty buildings of Lido Cluana, reworked during the fascist period with the add of fascist flagpoles that can be observed today. Villa Conti is a liberty villa built in 1910 destroyed during World War II and rebuilt.

Located between Civitanova Alta and Civitanova Porto, characterized by a park with an Italian garden. Next to the villa there is a neo-gothic church, the reproduction of Cappuccini Nuovi of Macerata. In the crypt of San Micheal Arch Angel Church there are the tombs of counts Conti as well as the tomb of th

Prince McCoy

Prince Albert McCoy was an American string band musician who played violin and had a pivotal but, until unacknowledged role in the development of blues and popular music. No recordings by him exist. Born in St Joseph, Louisiana, McCoy moved to Mississippi as a child. By the early 1900s, he led a band who performed at dances and civic events in the Mississippi Delta. Around 1903, when W. C. Handy and his band were playing at a dance in Cleveland, Mississippi, he encountered McCoy, although in his autobiography, Father of the Blues, as published in 1941, Handy did not refer to McCoy by name. Handy wrote that, at the request of the dancers, he gave up the stage to a group "led by a long-legged chocolate boy... consist of just three pieces, a battered guitar, a mandolin and a worn-out bass." He described their music as "one of those over-and-over strains that seem to have no clear beginning and no ending at all. The strumming attained a disturbing monotony, but on and on it went, a kind of stuff associated with cane rows and levee camps.

Thump-thump-thump went their feet on the floor. Their eyes rolled, their shoulders swayed. And through it all that little agonizing strain persisted." Though Handy considered the music to be "haunting", he doubted whether it would be popular, but changed his opinion when he noted:"A rain of silver dollars began to fall around the outlandish, stomping feet. The dancers went wild... There before the boys lay more money than my nine musicians were being paid for the entire engagement. I saw the beauty of primitive music, they had the stuff. It touched the spot, their music wanted polishing. Folks would pay money for it..". The occasion led Handy to change his "idea of what constitutes music", to start developing his influential career in popularizing blues music; the identity of the musicians he saw was unknown until 2009, when research by Elliott Hurwitt for Handy’s Mississippi Blues Trail marker uncovered earlier manuscript drafts of his autobiography, in which he named Prince McCoy as the "long-legged chocolate boy" who led the three-piece band – though Hurwitt himself has questioned the identification, noting that McCoy was leader of a respectable band rather than the "ragged" figure described by Handy.

Other manuscripts by Handy name McCoy as playing "I’m A Winding Ball And I Don’t Deny My Name", recorded and copyrighted some 35 years by Jelly Roll Morton as "Winin' Boy Blues". In 1909, the Vicksburg Herald reported that McCoy's band was "of Delta-wide fame", local newspaper reports indicate that he led a band of up to eight musicians who played dances in and around Cleveland and Vicksburg through the 1910s and into the early 1920s, he performed solo and duets on violin. McCoy moved from Mississippi to Winston-Salem, North Carolina before 1927, played in the Maxey Medicine Shows until at least 1937, he worked in Winston-Salem as a laborer and janitor at the Bowman Gray School of Medicine. His earlier career as a musician was unknown at the time of his death in 1968, aged 85. In 2017, a Mississippi Blues Trail marker to commemorate Prince McCoy was unveiled in Greenville
