Franchises have become an ever-present feature of American life, both in our landscapes and our economics. Peter M. Birkeland worked for three years in the front-line operations of franchise units for three companies, met with CEOs and executives, and attended countless trade shows, seminars, and expositions. Through this extensive fieldwork Birkeland not only discovered what makes franchisees succeed or fail, he uncovered the difficulties in running a business according to someone else's system and values. Bearing witness to a market flooded with fierce competitors and dependent on the inscrutable whims of consumers, he revealed the numerous challenges that franchisees face in making their businesses succeed.

Winner of the 2004 C. Hugh Holman Award from the Society for the Study of Southern Literature. Seems Like Murder Here offers a revealing new account of the blues tradition. Far from mere laments about lost loves and hard times, the blues emerge in this provocative study as vital responses to spectacle lynchings and the violent realities of African American life in the Jim Crow South. With brilliant interpretations of both classic songs and literary works, from the autobiographies of W. C. Handy, David Honeyboy Edwards, and B. B. King to the poetry of Langston Hughes and the novels of Zora Neale Hurston, Seems Like Murder Here will transform our understanding of the blues and its enduring power.

Journeyman's Road offers a portrait of the New York subculture struggling with the legacy of 9/11 and healing itself with the blues."--BOOK JACKET.

Includes all levels. Here we have a typical minor blues in all 12 keys. Few chord progressions offer the freedom and variety of expression found in the minor blues progression. Great players have all approached this chord progression in a variety of ways. Often, they attack each chord vertically in its pure form or play horizontally across the progression, usually with a blues or minor pentatonic scale. Some take all or part of the changes harmonically "out." Rhythm Section: Rob Schneiderman (p); Rufus Reid (b); Akira Tana (d).
