Ce n’est pas parce que cette fanfare issue du monde alternatif exhibe fièrement une faute d’accord dans son patronyme qu’ils sont coutumiers des fautes de goût ou des fausses notes. C’est davantage le sens de l’audace et l’irrespect pour les conventions qui animent ces canassons du son, dont certains membres forment la section cuivre du gang du contrebassiste Fantazio. Champions de la course d’obstacles, ils sautent avec aisance d’une compo sous influence afrobeat ou éthio-Jazz à un morceau de be-bop, rendent hommage au P-Funk de George Clinton avec leurs invités Push Up, Sandra Nkake et Allonymous, ou font sonner leurs conques pour défricher des terres inconnues, seuls ou en compagnie de la chanteuse italienne Bianca Iannuzzi. Joyeux et débridé, ce Colis Suspect finit bel et bien par nous sauter à la figure, mais on ne regrette pas de l’avoir ouvert.

Mehr als fünfzehn lange Jahre hat es gedauert, bis Jazz-Ikone Lisa Ekdahl nun endlich auch eine ihrer unnachahmlichen Liveperformances verewigen liess. Auf "At The Olympia Paris" präsentiert sie der Hörerin das ausverkaufte Abschlusskonzert ihrer fulminanten Europatournee aus 2009/2010 und interpretiert, neben einigen eigenen Songs, vor allem zeitlose Jazz-Standards wie "April in Paris", "Nature Boy" oder "Tea for Two" - natürlich in gewohnt Ekdahl`scher Manier.

“Celestial Circle” is the recording debut of the band of the same name. First assembled for Marilyn Mazur’s season as artist-in-residence at Norway’s Molde Jazz Festival in 2008, the group has since become a popular institution on the concert circuit, and the present disc, recorded in Oslo’s Rainbow Studio in 2010 is issued on the eve of a European tour. It’s a band of diverse strengths and changing moods, song-oriented but also instrumentally expressive.

The music in Bailador is abundant, torrential, brilliant and sophisticated. Everything in Portal is here: rigour and fun, knowledge and generosity, dazzling technique, pleasure in profusion, precision, and jeté… You can hear him everywhere: a playful hedonist enamoured of sharing and, at the same, a cerebral, cutting-edge musician.

For this recent release, I couldn't find any reviews by the "professionals," so I'll give it a go myself:
After listening to the record a couple of times, I still don't know what to make of it. Whereas previous Tigran Hamasyan albums seemed to be organized around a central theme, his latest effort seems to be a mixed bag without obvious connection between the individual songs. Of course, Tigran remains Tigran - a brilliant pianist who knows how to give every tune his own personal seal.

Being familiar with some of his work (basically the hit songs) I had no idea of the legacy this brilliant man has left behind. To my complete surprise this (ridiculously low priced) box set opened a new musical world before my ears and from the very first listening I have felt madly and hopelessly in love with Serge Gainsbourg's music. The quality of these recordings is matched by the quality of sound. The remastering is top notch and superior to most digital transfers heard today. I only wish this incredible set had been released on vinyl as well.

Pop, Dance-Pop, R’n’B | Label: Virgin | # 5099908324924 | Time: 00:39:14

As far as budget-line compilations are considered, 10 Great Songs is as straightforward as it gets. The disc contains Paula Abdul's first ten charting singles, from “Knocked Out” through “Vibeology.” That means that each one of her six consecutive number one singles – “Straight Up,” “Forever Your Girl,” “Cold Hearted,” “Opposites Attract,” “Rush, Rush,” and “The Promise of a New Day” – is included. “It’s Just the Way That You Love Me” and “Blowing Kisses in the Wind,” both of which reached the Top Ten, are here as well. This is all that most casual Abdul fans could possibly need.
