ORDER LOW END


As a native New Yorker and an American, I am still angered by the cowardly attacks of 9/11. Unless we restore New York City's skyline to its condition prior to September 11th, 2001, the miserable scum who attacked us will have won! Visit www.makeNYNYagain.com and rebuild America!

Enough Said?

 

Never!  Here are two pages culled from the ever-informative Pascual Roch circa 1922.  PLEASE SCHIRMER, reissue these books! 

I believe this is one of the most succinct and accurate discussions one can find.  I love these old Roch books.  They have been unavailable for more than 70 years.  It's about time they were re-released--the information is too valuable!

  LOW END  By Harry George Pellegrin.  The first in the Gary Morrissey series of mysteries.  Dealing with modern subject matter in the classic style of the 1940's Mystery Noire masters--think Raymond Chandler in New York in the 1980's...  LOW END is the story of a drug addict who is murdered after he believes he has found evidence of a major government conspiracy.  Is it only drug-induced paranoia?  Might be, except his paranoia could be considered justified: he was murdered, after all.  Friend Gary Morrissey takes it upon himself to find out just what happened and lands himself in the crosshairs.

Reflecting Pools    Original Music by Harry G. Pellegrin:
Reflecting Pools is a departure for me as it is totally keyboard. Well, the guitar did show up on one track...

"...Reflecting Pools is a notable first album [for Mr. Pellegrin]. A dramatic sense of tonality and mood are propelled by exemplary musicianship and exciting compositional exploits."

Available through www.BATHTUBMUSIC.com...

...And containing nine tracks that are relaxing, inspirational -- sounds like a snooze. Not really, this is great stuff to listen to on a rainy afternoon, while with your significant other (nudge, nudge, know what I mean?) Please visit the Reflecting Pools page on this site or www.bathtubmusic.com.

In That Zone, is now out! Please visit www.bathtubmusic.com for details and to order.

Sheet music download. In Acrobat format (.pdf), Harry Pellegrin's arrangement of "El Noi de la Mare" a traditional Catalan folk melody. Miguel Llobet's setting of this melody was performed by both John Williams as well as Andres Segovia, among others. A popular legend reports that when Segovia passed away, this piece of music was open upon his music stand. Some say this was probably the last piece Segovia played before his death.

Regardless of the veracity of the tale, this is a very beautiful melody, one which evokes a deeply emotional response in the listener--when it is performed correctly. Simple melody notwithstanding, there are some difficult measures in this piece. Either view with Acrobat Reader online or right mouse click 'save target as' and ENJOY! EL NOI

Mr. Pellegrin accepts a wide range of students from beginner to advanced. Please email for information and openings in his schedule. information@pellegrinlowend.com.
