Pain Relief Beyond Belief





From Blakey to Brown, Como to Costa, Eckstine to Eldridge, Galbraith to Garner, Harris to Hines, Horne to Hyman, Jamal to Jefferson, Kelly to Klook; Mancini to Marmarosa, May to Mitchell, Negri to Nestico, Parlan to Ponder, Reed to Ruther, Strayhorn to Sullivan, Turk to Turrentine, Wade to Williams… the forthcoming publication Treasury of Pittsburgh Jazz Connections by Dr. Nelson Harrison and Dr. Ralph Proctor, Jr. will document the legacy of one of the world’s greatest jazz capitals.


Do you want to know who Dizzy Gillespie  idolized? Did you ever wonder who inspired Kenny Clarke and Art Blakey? Who was the pianist that mentored Monk, Bud Powell, Tad Dameron, Elmo Hope, Sarah Vaughan and Mel Torme? Who was Art Tatum’s idol and Nat Cole’s mentor? What musical quartet pioneered the concept adopted later by the Modern Jazz Quartet? Were you ever curious to know who taught saxophone to Stanley Turrentine or who taught piano to Ahmad Jamal? What community music school trained Robert McFerrin, Sr. for his history-making debut with the Metropolitan Opera? What virtually unknown pianist was a significant influence on young John Coltrane, Shirley Scott, McCoy Tyner, Bobby Timmons and Ray Bryant when he moved to Philadelphia from Pittsburgh in the 1940s?  Would you be surprised to know that Erroll Garner attended classes at the Julliard School of Music in New York and was at the top of his class in writing and arranging proficiency?


Some answers  can be gleaned from the postings on the Pittsburgh Jazz Network.


For almost 100 years the Pittsburgh region has been a metacenter of jazz originality that is second to no other in the history of jazz.  One of the best kept secrets in jazz folklore, the Pittsburgh Jazz Legacy has heretofore remained mythical.  We have dubbed it “the greatest story never told” since it has not been represented in writing before now in such a way as to be accessible to anyone seeking to know more about it.  When it was happening, little did we know how priceless the memories would become when the times were gone.


Today jazz is still king in Pittsburgh, with events, performances and activities happening all the time. The Pittsburgh Jazz Network is dedicated to celebrating and showcasing the places, artists and fans that carry on the legacy of Pittsburgh's jazz heritage.

Ameliorate Your Business Through Outsourcing SEO Services

The cutting edge for today is e-commerce. Websites have become the home of online business processes of all kinds; these websites have become important part of companies. Thus, the purpose and scope of websites has increased greatly and many businesses today manage them as the dynamic business applications.

So, in order to become champion in this competitive edge, it is mandatory that one’s business website should appear on the top of search result pages of a search. This task can be accomplished by Search Engine Optimization. However, few companies are large enough or they have sufficient in-house expertise to launch Search Engine Optimization Services for their websites, but not all. Small and medium size companies can find the solution by getting these services from other companies.

Thus, hiring another company to provide an outside support for any service is called outsourcing. Outsourcing SEO Services can save time and money spent on recruiting and hiring in-house SEO professionals. This can also enable an e-business to access experienced SEO specialists who are familiar with the normal practices and current technologies.

It can be divided into three types:

Early Outsourcing: In many cases, companies outsource the initial website design and development to launch their website quickly, so that they can design their website in a search engine friendly manner. The outsourcing team then trains the company’s professionals in search engine optimization techniques so that they can optimize their website later. This is comparatively advanced approach.

Late Outsourcing: Some companies follow the more traditional approach. The company’s professionals do the initial design and development work and launch the website. When this website becomes a stable part of their business, the work of optimizing website is outsourced and the company’s professionals turn their attention and talents towards other areas of business. This is called Late outsourcing.

Partial Outsourcing: This is also called component outsourcing. In this approach, the company identifies specific portions of SEO field that are to be implemented on their website and assigns these specific tasks to another company that specializes in those functions.

Before agreeing to any outsourcing contract, an e-business should thoroughly review several professional candidates of this field to get answers to the following questions:

What services do they provide?

What are their staff capabilities, and what portion of SEO they handle?

Can they provide references and examples of their work?

Who is responsible for updating and maintaining the website?

What happens if updates are not made on timely basis?

Who owns the content of the website?

Before outsourcing one should determine which part of SEO Services is to be outsourced. After that one should think about the budget. The amount of money is a crucial factor in this process. After deciding the overall budget, one can hire a company which is according to one’s need.

So, this was a piece of information I wanted to give. I am sure that by Outsourcing SEO Services one’s business can gain better rapport in corporate world.
