In what was a giant undertaking (even for producer Norman Granz), pianist Oscar Peterson recorded ten Songbook albums during 1952-1954 and when his trio changed, nine more in 1959. Both of his George Gershwin projects (one from 1952 and the other from 1959) have been reissued in full on this single CD. The earlier date matches the brilliant Peterson with guitarist Barney Kessel and bassist Ray Brown, while the 1959 session has Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen. The Songbook series found Peterson playing concise (around three-minute) versions of tunes, and he always kept the melody in the forefront. The results are not innovative or unique, but they are tasteful and reasonably enjoyable. Since five of the songs are played by both groups, a comparison between the two units is interesting.

In musical terms, 1959 was the year rock'n'roll lost its first great singer-songwriter. Buddy Holly perished when the single-engined Beechcraft light aircraft in which he was travelling fell to earth in a snowstorm near Mason City, Iowa. He was accompanied by fellow stars the Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens; we feature 'Donna', the last hit released in Valens' lifetime. The pop world they left behind was one that represented every kind of music, both pre-rock and beyond. In 1959, the British Invasion was still a handful of years on the horizon, as were such earthshaking events as the Cuban missile crisis and the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Enjoy the soundtrack to 12 rock 'n' rolling months.

Two decades after its original negatives were burned in a fire, Satyajit Ray’s breathtaking milestone of world cinema rises from the ashes in a meticulously reconstructed new restoration. The Apu Trilogy brought India into the golden age of international art-house film, following one indelible character, a free-spirited child in rural Bengal who matures into an adolescent urban student and finally a sensitive man of the world. These delicate masterworks—Pather Panchali (Song of the Little Road), Aparajito (The Unvanquished), and Apur Sansar (The World of Apu)—based on two books by Bibhutibhusan Banerjee, were shot over the course of five years, and each stands on its own as a tender, visually radiant journey. They are among the most achingly beautiful, richly humane movies ever made—essential works for any film lover.
