Hit Me, Fred

With Hit Me, Fred, sensational sideman Fred Wesley Jr. moves front and center to tell his life story. A legendary funk, soul, and jazz musician, Wesley is best known for his work in the late sixties and early seventies with James Brown and as the leader of Brown’s band, Fred Wesley and the JB’s. Having been the band’s music director, arranger, trombone player, and frequent composer, Wesley is one of the original architects of funk music. He describes what it was like working for the Godfather of Soul, revealing the struggle and sometimes stringent discipline behind Brown’s tight, raucous tunes. After leaving Brown and the JB’s, Wesley arranged the horn sections for Parliament, Funk...

The Life & Times of Fred Wesley Wentworth

Fred Wesley Wentworth and the Wentworth era span from the 1890s to the 1940s. Starting out as a local architect designing homes, commercial buildings and institutions for leading citizens in Paterson, New Jersey, his career quickly transformed by way of a Jewish entrepreneur, Jacob Fabian, into the archetect of grand movie palaces throughout New Jersey and the movie palace prototype nationwide. In addition, he was well know of his designs of institituions of Jewish life. These buildings shaped generations of immigrants and their chidlren and created a place that offered a sophisticated urban life.

I Slept with the Choir

My name is Franklin Charmer. I am a musician by trade. I play the organ and have played for two of the biggest churches in the city. I have been in the church all my life and consider myself a good Christian. I have been a Minister of Music since I was twelve. The past two years I have attended Faith Mission Tabernacle on the Rock Missionary Church of the Baptist God in Christ after having a disagreement with the last choir director and pastor. I am now in a small ministry with approximately sixty-five members but am still in the position of music director. I am in charge of the choir. The choir is made up of four women, the Character sisters, Melissa and Mona, Mrs. Pamela Forge, who is a relative of the founder of the church, Ms. Cinnamon Washington who is a former stripper with the voice of an angel, and our choir director Mr. Derek Potter. These are the members of my choir. And I slept with them all.

Contactor Control by Adaptive Pattern Recognition Techniques

The purpose of the research described herein is to explore the possibility of utilizing patternrecognition techniques in the design of controllers for complex dynamic processes. In this design reverse-time trajectories are used to generate patterns that indicate the position of the minimum-time optimal switching surface. Adaptive pattern-recognition techniques are used to find a readily implemented switching function that closely approximates the optimal switching surface. An adaptive threshold logic element-a trainable, linear, pattern-recognition device- is used in conjunction with other equipment to realize a trainable, nonlinear, patternrecognition device. The controller-design procedure has been simplified by the ability of the trainable function generator to generalize, i.e., to learn the switching function for all regions of the state space after being trained on patterns from only a part of the space. Conditions have been developed, which, if satisfied by the optimal switching surface, will assure that generalization will occur. (Author).
