We The Numbers Band give the people our best. Our effort goes into being creative, unique and original. We define our own sound. There are no rules because we don't play the game. We are not in it for the game, we're in it for the music. The majority of the recordings were financed by friends. Hundreds of photographs taken of the band in different stages of it's existence by different amazing people tell a story of intense performances, long nights, and the passing of time.
Band members have come and gone, and returned again. Robert sees music as much more than an emotional release or a performance. The title of the band has always aroused curiosity from fans. The fans called them The Numbers because it was easier than trying to get the figures right. Numbers had not been used in a name before, and the political climate in was quite Orwell-ian. In the chapter "The Jinx Is On Me", Oliver describes the Numbers Racket popular in Harlem in the s and how dreams were analyzed as number sequences and used for placing bets.
The band's music theory specialist, Terry Hynde, also discovered that 15 divided 15 is 1, 60 divided by 15 is 4, and 75 divided by 15 is 5. In a musician's world, "1, 4, 5," is referred to as the "universal progression".
The band resides in northeast Ohio. They have several recordings under their belt and more music than they can afford to release.
From Toulouse, France! French pianist Philippe LeJeune is a perfect example of the mixture of jazz and blues which was especially an important strain in the jazz tradition. The young pianist attended a concert in Reims, France, by master boogie-woogie and blues pianist Memphis Slim, and immediately put an end to his classical efforts and began teaching himself the blues, scouring local record shops for LP's by boogie woogie greats.
A frenchman who loves and plays classic American jazz is not entirely unusual, but what sets Philippe apart from his contemporaries is his soulfoul feel for the music.
His repertoire ranges from classic barrelhouse boogie woogie piano to Duke Ellington and Horace Silver tunes as well those of Milt Jackson and George Gershwin. Philippe LeJeune has found a role not only as an interpreter of contemporary numbers, but as traditionalist bringing back to today's audiences important music from a variety of older sources and melting it all together into a highly personal style and repertoire.
The frenchman's natural instinct for blues, jazz and boogie is food for the soul. On October 17, , The Beatles entered Abbey Road Studios to record their sixth album, just in time, for a Christmas release, as usual. But there was nothing usual about the outcome.
First, and there were many firsts, they did not have songs to record so over the next month and just eleven recording sessions they wrote and recorded 14 of their most creative works.
And instead of writing songs of teen love, and inspired by American folk and soul music, they wrote songs about their lives what they felt inside. Being recording veterans, The Beatles asserted themselves and, for the first time, had complete creative control which resulted in, Rubber Soul, an album that certainly changed things.
The change continued with their next effort, Revolver. Again, the universes of pop writing, music, arranging and recording was expanded. The Beatles wanted everything to sound different, so they experimented with levels, mic placement, tape loops, twin guitar leads, Leslie-phased vocals, Indian instruments artificial double-tracking ADT and a variety of new effects, most of which were invented on the spot. Both albums, not only, changed the course of The Beatles but, as many have said, changed the direction of pop music.

But it wasn't until , when Phil's band Glass Harp with childhood friend John Sferra on drums, and Dan Pecchio on bass recorded their self-titled first album that people really began to take notice of this incredibly gifted guitar player. By , Phil saw his life going in a different direction, and made the tough decision to leave Glass Harp and pursue a solo career.

As the album's title suggests, Gentle Is My Love is a collection of romantic ballads that Wilson addresses with her characteristic emotionalism and precision. The arrangements are full of lush string parts, and the tempos are taken deliberately.
It is striking that Wilson sings a number of then-recent standards, starting with "Who Can I Turn To When Nobody Needs Me " from the musical The Roar of the Greasepaint -- The Smell of the Crowd, that had been performed by others especially men as soaring, heroic anthems, and instead takes them down to more intimate, reflective ballads.
