Malheur River

The Malheur River is a 190-mile-long tributary of the Snake River in eastern Oregon in the United States. It drains the Blue Mountains and the Snake. Despite the similarity of name, the river does not flow into nearby Malheur Lake, located in the enclosed Harney Basin southwest of the watershed of the river; when water levels were higher, Malheur Lake would drain into the Malheur River. The Malheur River rises in the southern Blue Mountains of southern Grant County, south of Strawberry Mountain in the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness, it flows south through Malheur National Forest southeast past Drewsey and through Warm Springs Reservoir. At Riverside in western Malheur County it receives the South Fork Malheur River from the south turns back northward to Juntura, where it receives the North Fork Malheur River from the north. From Juntura it flows east past Vale, joining the Snake from the west two miles north of Ontario, Oregon; the mouth of the Malheur River is at Snake river mile 370 or river kilometer 600.

The name of the river is derived from the French for "misfortune." The name was attached to the river by French Canadian voyageur trappers working for the North West Company on the Snake County Expeditions of Donald Mackenzie as early as 1818 for the unfortunate circumstance that some beaver furs they had cached there were snatched by Indians. The name first appears in the record in 1826 when Peter Skene Ogden, a fur trapper with the Hudson's Bay Company, referred to it as "River au Malheur" and thereafter as "Unfortunate River." The river lived up to its name a second time in 1845, when mountain man Stephen Meek, seeking a faster route along the Oregon Trail, led a migrant party up the river valley into the high desert along a route that has since become known as the Meek Cutoff. After leaving the river valley the party was unable to find a water supply and lost 23 people by the time they reached The Dalles on the Columbia River. In 1853, 1854 and 1859 the river was used more as the route of the Elliott Cutoff.

The emigrants followed the ruts of Stephen Meek. From here they sought more direct routes to the Deschutes River, where they turned south until reaching the Free Emigrant Road; the road was built over the Cascades through Willamette Pass and brought emigrants into Central Oregon. The lower Malheur River is used for irrigation in the agricultural potato-growing in the Snake River Plain along the Idaho-Oregon border. There are 370 miles of irrigation-related canals and ditches in the lower basin of the Malheur River and its tributary Willow Creek; the streamflow of the Malheur and its tributaries is influenced by a complex system of irrigation diversions and canals, which begin near Malheur river mile 65, near Namorf and Harper, Oregon. This irrigation system extends downstream to the mouth of the Malheur at Oregon. Irrigation is used on about 132,000 acres within the Malheur River basin; the irrigation system is part of the Bureau of Reclamation's Vale Project, which includes a number of water impoundments, the largest of which are Warm Springs Reservoir on the mainstem Malheur River, Beulah Reservoir on the North Fork Malheur, Bully Creek Reservoir on Bully Creek, Malheur Reservoir on Willow Creek.

The project is maintained by the Vale-Oregon Irrigation District. Agricultural runoff has resulted in a phosphorus pollution problem in its lower reaches; the Malheur River watershed was once a major spawning ground for anadromous fish such as salmon. In the early 20th century a number of dams on the Snake River blocked fish migration. A 13.7-mile segment of the Malheur River from Bosenberg Creek to the Malheur National Forest boundary became protected as wild and scenic in 1988 as part of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. The protected area includes 3,758 acres of land along the river.

The album features two of the band's biggest and best-known hits, "And We Danced" and "Day by Day", as well as the minor hit, "All You Zombies", a rerecorded version of a single that had first been released in 1982. In the summer of 1983, guitarist Eric Bazilian and keyboard player Rob Hyman were invited by their old college friend and bandmate from Baby Grand, Rick Chertoff, to work on the debut album for a newly signed singer to Columbia Records named Cyndi Lauper; this resulted in The Hooters reforming after having broken up several months earlier. Executives at Columbia Records, who were impressed by the over 100,000 copies that the band's independent album Amore had sold, as well as the local Philadelphia fan support decided on July 26, 1984 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia, to sign The Hooters to a multi-album contract to the company.

On July 13, 1985, The Hooters opened the Philadelphia segment of Live Aid, a concert event to raise funds to benefit Africa. This internationally televised event introduced the band to a global audience that subsequently translated to major commercial success, their first major overseas tour came that year when they played throughout Australia. Different versions of three songs on Nervous Night — "All You Zombies", "Hanging on a Heartbeat" and "Blood from a Stone" — were released on The Hooters' independent album release Amore in 1983. "Blood From a Stone" had been covered by Red Rockers and released as a single. Eric Bazilian told Songfacts that "Day by Day" "was a song that started as an experiment with Rick Chertoff." He added that it took them "2 years whipping it into shape." An award-winning film starring The Hooters and directed by John Jopson, Nervous Night, was produced by Bell One Productions. Nervous Night was shot on 35mm film and intercuts two separate elements: a concert filmed at the Tower Theater in Philadelphia, a series of short films, each one starring a different band member.

Music of New Orleans

The music of New Orleans assumes various styles of music which have borrowed from earlier traditions. New Orleans, Louisiana, is known for its strong association with jazz music, universally considered to be the birthplace of the genre; the earliest form was dixieland, which has sometimes been called traditional jazz,'New Orleans', and'New Orleans jazz'. However, the tradition of jazz in New Orleans has taken on various forms that have either branched out from original dixieland or taken different paths altogether. New Orleans has been a prominent center of funk, home to some of the earliest funk bands such as The Meters; the African influence on New Orleans music can trace its roots at least back to Congo Square in New Orleans in 1835, when slaves would congregate there to play music and dance on Sundays. African music was played as well as local music, including that of local white composers, such as Louis Moreau Gottschalk. Along with European musical forms that were popular in the city, including the brass band traditions, the cultural mix laid the groundwork for the New Orleans musical art forms to come.

By 1838, the local paper—the daily Picayune—ran a scathing article complaining about the emergence of brass bands in the city, which it stated could be found on every corner. The term "jazz" did not become popular until the mid and late 1910s, when New Orleans musicians first rose to prominence in other parts of the USA and the New Orleans style needed a new name to differentiate it from the nationally popular ragtime. Before the New Orleans style was simply called "ragtime", along with such local terms as "hot music" and "ratty music"; the local New Orleans dance music style was distinctive in the 19th century. When this style became what was known as "jazz" remains a matter of debate and definition, although most New Orleans music historians believe what became known as New Orleans style jazz was the product of a series of developments reaching its famous form no earlier than the 1890s and no than the mid 1910s. By the 1890s a man by the name of Poree hired a band led by cornetist Buddy Bolden, many of whose contemporaries as well as many jazz historians consider to be the first prominent jazz musician.

The music was not called jazz at this time, consisting of marching band music with brass instruments and dancing. If anything, Bolden could be said to have been a blues player; the actual term "jazz" was first "jass", the etymology of, still not clear. The connotation is sexual in nature, as many of the early performers played in rough working class venues. Despite colorful stories of mid-20th century writers, the prostitution district known as Storyville was no more important in the development of the music than the city's other neighborhoods, but did play a role in exposing some out of town visitors to the style. Many instruments used were acquired second-hand at pawn shops, including used military band instruments; the Creole people of New Orleans contributed to the evolution of the artform, though their own music became influenced by the pioneering work of Bolden. New Orleans-born musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet and Jelly Roll Morton all recalled the influence Bolden had on the direction of the music of New Orleans and jazz itself.

New Orleans had experienced a large wave of migration from the Italian region of Sicily between the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Sicilian capital of Palermo had long held cotton and citrus fruit trade with New Orleans; this resulted in the establishment of a direct shipping line between the two port cities which enabled a vast number of Sicilians to migrant to New Orleans, as well as other American cities. As a result of this migration, much of New Orleans jazz was modeled from the music of Sicily; this was shown in the New Orleans group the Original Dixieland Jass Band. Bandleader Nick LaRocca and drummer Tony Sbarbaro were both born to parents who were Sicilian migrants; the band's "Livery Stable Blues" became the first jazz record issued. African American music began incorporating Afro-Cuban musical motifs in the nineteenth century, when the habanera gained international popularity; the habanera was the first written music to be rhythmically based on an African motif. From the perspective of African American music, the habanera rhythm can be thought of as a combination of tresillo and the backbeat.

Musicians from Havana and New Orleans would take the twice-daily ferry between both cities to perform and not the habanera took root in the musically fertile Crescent City. John Storm Roberts states that the musical genre habanera, "reached the U. S. 20 years before the first rag was published". The symphonic work La nuit des tropiques by New Orleans native Louis Moreau Gottschalk, was influenced by the composer's studies in Cuba. Gottschalk used the tresillo variant cinquillo extensively. With Gottschalk, we see the beginning of serious treatment of Afro-Caribbean rhythmic elements in New World art music. For the more than quarter-century in which the cakewalk and proto-jazz were forming and developing, the habanera was a consistent part of African American popular music. Whether tresillo was directly transplanted from Cuba, or if the habanera reinforced tresillo-like "rhythmic tendencies" present in New Orleans music is impossible to determine, it is reasonable to assume that tresillo-based rhythms were performed in Congo Square by Caribbean slave
