admin no comments

first_imgBruce Hornsby and his band, The Noisemakers, stopped by the Jimmy Kimmel Live! studios on Wednesday to serve as the late-night show’s featured musical guests. For their appearance on the popular talk show, Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers treated fans in attendance and viewers watching at home to a performance of “Cast-Off”, one of the tunes featured on the pianist’s latest studio album, Absolute Zero.The band’s performance of the calming ballad opened up beautifully with Hornsby on his baby grand piano while accompanied by his small string section. The song quickly took off but never got too far ahead of itself as each of the six members allows the music to glide along with melodic ease and tranquility. Sadly, Hornsby wasn’t joined by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, who appears on the album version of the song, but the band seemed to manage just fine without him. Fans can watch the entire performance from Wednesday’s episode below:Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers – “Cast-Off”[Video: Jimmy Kimmel Live!]Absolute Zero arrived last month via Zappo Productions/Thirty Tigers, and features a mix of guest collaborators and musicians including Vernon, yMusic, Robert Hunter, The Staves, Blake Mills, Jack DeJohnette, Sean Carey, and The Orchestra Of St. Hanks.Hornsby and company had been in southern California this past weekend where they performed at the inaugural BeachLife Festival.

Surveillance conducted in advance of Olympics

He said his reporter and Rinella had two or three conversations, “and that’s the number he (Rinella) was comfortable with.” Earlier this month, Interior Minister Giuseppe Pisanu told parliament the Turin Olympics could be a target for terrorists, but stressed there were no “clear signals” of any imminent attacks being planned. Pisanu cited messages posted on Web sites with links to al-Qaida that have threatened attacks against Italy because it has troops in Iraq. ROME – Italian authorities, fearing a possible terrorist attack on the Winter Olympics in Turin, are conducting surveillance on “numerous” people through telephone wiretaps and other intelligence operations, an Italian security official said Tuesday. Luigi Rinella, the Italian police’s liaison with the U.S. government, said those under surveillance included suspected Islamic militants, but he stressed that anti-globalization protesters and anarchists could also make trouble during the Feb. 10-26 Games. “Clearly at this moment, the sensibility is to groups that we call Islamic terrorist that are connected to al-Qaida,” he told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from Washington. Rinella said the surveillance involved telephone wiretaps and other forms of interceptions. But he noted that such activities were also used in drug-trafficking intelligence-gathering operations, and not just anti-terrorism operations. He said police had devised a broad security plan for the Games, providing for 9,000 police officers, a central control room connected to 21 onsite operational centers, and a central national information room connected to police and intelligence services of numerous countries. Last month, the head of the Interior Ministry’s office running Turin security, Francesco Tagliente, told reporters that foreign security agents would be barred from carrying firearms during the Games – except for agents protecting VIP visitors, which would be decided on a case-by-case basis. Around 2,500 athletes, 1 million spectators and 5,000 officials are expected at the Olympics in Turin. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
