Here is a worthwhile re-issue of a classic jazz-fusion release. The title track is just a sublime piece of midtempo magic, the kind of track would play on his much missed Radio 1 show (the music for a candlelight dinner section). gets to sing on this track. Elsewhere we get some jazz-funk instrumentals the best to my mind being the moody, downtempo with ronnie's soprano sax to the fore atop dreamy fendor rhodes. is an attractive ballad with singing again. With sidesmen and women of the calibre of , , and helping out, he can't really go wrong, can he?

This 2005 recording of Han-Na Chang performing Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No. 1 and Cello Sonata is a follow-up to her 2003 recording of Prokofiev's Cello Concerto and Cello Sonata. In both cases, Chang is accompanied by Antonio Pappano either leading the London Symphony Orchestra or playing the piano. As on the earlier disc, Chang is primarily a soloist with a strong arm and a dazzling technique, and her performances sparkle with energy and twinkle with enthusiasm.

The Japanese liner notes call this combo – Harry Allen-Scott Hamilton New York Sextet – the first two-tenor team to be formed in the 21st century. I'm not sure about THE first in the century, but surely it is one of the most notable, and welcome, two-tenor teams in recent memory. Harry Allen and Scott Hamilton add their own contributions to the "two tenor" tradition built by such teams as Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt, Dexter Gordon and Wardell Gray, and Al Cohn and Zoot Sims. Allen and Hamilton's modern day team is one of relaxed, friendly competition and mutual admiration that is perhaps most reminiscent of the Cohn-Sims combo. Their shared style decidedly leans to mainstream, straight-ahead swing, and they are not into showing off their skills or outstaging the partner.

Ray Russell has had quite the glittering career. Setting off at age 15 with the John Berry Seven, the guitarist went on to play with the Graham Bond Organisation and then Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames. Eventually, Russell would lend his talents on-stage and/or in the studio to a plethora of performers, from Tina Turner to Lulu, the Bee Gees to Phil Collins, and branching out in the '70s to compose for the small screen. Amidst this busy career, Russell also put together the odd band, like the Running Man, whose sole, eponymous album was released with little fanfare in 1972. The core trio of Russell on both guitar and bass, vocalist/organist Alan Greed, and vocalist/drummer Alan Rushton was supplemented by Harry Beckett on trumpet and fl├╝gelhorn and the late Gary Windo on tenor sax…

Telluric Chaos is a live album by the reunited Iggy Pop & The Stooges. The album chronicles the closing date of the band's first ever Japanese tour, which took place on March 22, 2004, at the Shibuya AX in Tokyo. The album documents a typical reunited Stooges set, primarily drawn from the band's first two albums (including all of Fun House) with no material from the James Williamson era (Raw Power, Kill City). The album/live set also includes some of the first live performances of three of the four Stooges reunion tracks from Iggy Pop's 2003 solo album Skull Ring plus one brand new song, "My Idea Of Fun" (a finalized version appears on their 2007 studio album The Weirdness).

According to Oscar B. Goodman, mayor of Las Vegas, the city celebrated its 100th birthday on May 15, 2005, reflecting the passage of a century since the day "our first residents purchased 100 acres in a land auction near what is now the heart of downtown Las Vegas." For about the first 45 of those 100 years, the town was, as Goodman admits, a "sleepy railroad stopover," but the 55 years since have seen it "transformed…into the entertainment capital of the world."
