Cirrus Bay's "Whimsical Weather" refines the "Genesis-influenced neo-prog with a Renaissance-influenced vocalist" formula which Cirrus Bay had nailed down reasonably effectively on A Step Into Elsewhere (2009).
"Whimsical Weather" is the 3rd Cirrus Bay CD, and is a bit more lush, layered and complex than previous CDs. The feel of the outdoors is notable in the music, helped by the layered mix of acoustic and electric guitars, mellotron, organ, synths, and occasional mandolin.

The 2013 box set The Complete Remastered Recordings on Black Saint & Soul Note includes three of trumpeter Dave Douglas' albums with his String Group, as well as three albums by other artists on which he was featured. Included is 1993's Parallel Worlds, 1996's Five, and 1999's Convergence, as well as Rova's 1995 album John Coltrane's Ascension, bassist John Lindberg's 1998 release Bounce, and bassist Mark Dresser's 1994 album Force Green. With over six hours of music, this anthology compiles much of the genre-crossing, exploratory modern creative jazz that brought Douglas to the attention of the greater jazz community. With beautifully remastered sound, this Black Saint and Soul Note collection is a must-have for Douglas fans who have yet to discover this period of the prolific artist's career.

This is an exciting performance. Gabriele Lavia’s steampunk production is stylish and plays up the violence and tension that underpin the opera. Nicola Luisotti’s conducting does likewise, as he is sharp and authoritative but also allows the music to breath naturally. The cast is excellent.(Opera Now)

Je me souviens avoir été submergé de bonheur quand, le 14 mai 2007, Emmanuelle Mignon et Claude Guéant, les deux plus proches collaborateurs de Nicolas Sarkozy, m’ont proposé un poste de conseiller au cabinet du président de la République fraîchement élu. J’allais enfin entrer au cœur du pouvoir – sans savoir que ce cœur-là était surtout celui d’un volcan ! …

Genre: Heavy Progressive Rock/Doom Metal | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Black Widow Records (BWRCD 138-2)

French band Northwinds was formed back in 1990, initially calling themselves R.I.P. but altering to their current moniker in the mid 90's. Since then five full length albums have seen the light of day, of which "Winter" from 2012 is the fourth. As has been the case for all their productions, this CD was released through the Italian label Black Widow Records. If you're the kind of person that have Antonius Rex and Black Sabbath side by side in your music collection, enjoy the occasional Black Widow (the band) album or have a general affection for productions released by Black Widow (the label), Northwinds is a band you probably should investigate. And their latest production "Winter" appears to be a good choice in getting to know this band better.
