"Songs for Rainy Day Lovers" is an album by American keyboardist/composer-arranger Clare Fischer, recorded in August 1966 and released in September 1967 by Columbia Records. It have been reissued in 1978 on the Discovery label as "America the Beautiful". Having provided his distinctive string backgrounds for albums by several artists over the previous decade, including Donald Byrd, Cal Tjader, and the Hi-Lo's, the 37-year-old Fischer finally had an opportunity to provide the same service for himself, as a string orchestra and rhythm section combine to support the leader as featured piano soloist.

"Delicately" is an aptly-titled recording that captures the artful acoustic stylings of the legendary guitar master Charlie Byrd, one of the greatest jazz guitarists who was a major influence, alongside Stan Getz and others, on the introduction of the "Bossa Nova" craze to the USA. This performance includes Charlie on 5 richly-voiced solo guitar tracks and 6 tracks by a trio which includes Mario Darpino on flute and Charlie's talented brother Joe Byrd on double bass violin.

When Leopold of Anhalt-Cöthen died in 1728, his former Kapellmeister had not forgotten the five brilliant years he had spent in the prince’s service. He dedicated to his memory a mourning cantata almost entirely based on the music of two major works of the mid-1720s, the Trauer-Ode and the St. Matthew Passion. Although the score is lost, the wordbook and other sources of information have now made it possible to reconstruct the work. In his first recording for harmonia mundi, Raphaël Pichon invites us on an exciting musical treasure hunt.

Miles Davis had publicly called him a madman. Leonard Bernstein found him, for his part, completely awesome. Few were those that didn’t have a definitive opinion on Ornette Coleman. Some kind of outlaw who preferred playing his own compositions rather than jazz classics, the American saxophonist also developed harmolodics, a theory uniting harmonics and melody. This box of ten discs compiles one of the most important era in the career of his author. Between 1959 and 1961, he released six studio albums for the Atlantic label. Six albums that are present here and spiced up with alternative takes and various bonuses, all of this of course impeccably remastered by John Webber. Albums included: The Shape Of Jazz To Come (1959), Change Of The Century (1959), This Is Our Music (1960), Free Jazz: A Collective Improvisation (1960), Ornette! (1961) and Ornette On Tenor (1961), and the compilations The Art Of Improvisers (1970), Twins (1971), To Whom Who Keeps A Record (1975) and The Ornette Coleman Legacy (1993).

On this critically acclaimed album, pianist Jan Lundgren displays his deep understanding of both tradition and modernism together with his preternatural instinct for bringing the two together. Entirely composed by Lundgren save for one track, Potsdamer Platz provides ample evidence of the compatibility of the musicians and their growth together as the band moves forward with a clear and strong common purpose.

A beautiful later Blue Note album from vibist Bobby Hutcherson – a set recorded after his famous association with Harold Land, but with a groove that's wonderfully soulful in a whole different way! Bobby plays marimbas instead of vibes this time around, and he's working with his own arrangements for a slightly larger group – one that has some sweet fusion overtones, and these wonderful mellow funk inflections – so that even the mellow cuts have this warmly glowing, ultra-soulful sound that's mighty nice – a bit like some of the work from Gene Harris around the same time.

"Blue Bell Knoll" from Cocteau Twins gets the reissue treatment, remastered some 26 years after its initial release. Strikingly beautiful at points, it features standouts such as 'Athol-Brose' and the title track 'Blue Bell Knoll', but it's a slow burner of an album that features them retreading their best path while venturing into unknown territory. 'Carolyn's Fingers' - perhaps the album's highest point - features Elisabeth Fraser intoning hip-hop rhythms and delightful guitar melodies as played by Robin Guthrie. While not their best work, it's a must for collectors and newcomers alike.
