For this writer, the quintessential moment of the 2018 Newport Jazz Festival came in transit. A quick stroll on Saturday afternoon took me from the main stage, where Laurie Anderson was wrapping up a set of luminous, exploratory string-trio free improv, to one of the smaller tents, where octogenarian Memphis piano master Harold Mabern, saxophonist Eric Alexander & Co. were busy muscling through a set of exquisite old-school hardbop. The transition was disorienting in the best way possible — an illustration of just how broad this legendary fest’s concept of jazz still is. Thanks to its upscale beach-town setting, the Rhode Island festival might still have an air of old-money gentility.

Jes Staley, the chief executive of Barclays, could be forgiven if tonight he reaches for a more expensive wine than usual for a Friday evening. A major thorn in his - and the bank's - side has just been removed. Edward Bramson, the British-born but US-based activist investor, today called time on his three-year campaign to get Barclays to shrink its corporate and investment banking business and reinvest the capital saved in other areas. Sherborne Investors, his investment vehicle, said it had offloaded its entire 6.01% shareholding in the bank. The news will come as a huge boost to Mr Staley. Sherborne had been a huge distraction to him as he sought to navigate the bank through the recession sparked by COVID-19 . Advertisement The Sherborne fund that had held the stake in Barclays included some of the City's best-known investors, including Schroders, Aviva, Fidelity International, Jupiter, Janus Henderson, Invesco and Colombia Threadneedle, among its … [Read more...] about Barclays boss Staley emerges victorious after activist investor battle

How scary is Resident Evil Village? If you're easily afraid, that's probably a question you've been secretly hoping would be answered before the entire game gets spoiled by social media… just in case you do want to play it. Resident Evil Village is perhaps the most technically proficient and visually impressive PS5 and Xbox Series X game available right now. It should be experienced first hand if you have the stomach for its high-octane action and debilitating scares. Of course, not all of us do have that tolerance for tension – and I should know, because I'm one of them! Before we get any further, I just want to take a second to outline my horror bona fides – because I think I'm perfectly placed to help you gauge whether Resident Evil Village is too scary for you. I fit this weird little crosssection where I've played 28 of the Resident Evil games, but have routinely struggled to push through the rising tide of first-person horror games released in the shadow of Amnesia. … [Read more...] about How scary is Resident Evil Village?
