The English violinist transcribed with this first album the spirit of gypsy nights he runs every Wednesday evening "Aux Petits Players", the Parisian venue has become a benchmark in the gypsy jazz. At the first notes of "Urban Gypsy" the spirit of Stephane Grappelli and Django flat, but never stifle creativity of the musician. From the second title (sung), it is clear that we are not there in "imitation." Flirting with bossa nova, blues and folk, original compositions on the album (and "Minor Swing," the only cover) offer a personal vision of gypsy jazz, a nomadic jazz chooses to drink to multiple sources. A disc that refreshes the genre and artist to discover.
A photograph album full of treasured memories - David Roth's third album with Stockfisch-Records "Will You Come Home". Singer/songwriter Roth transports the listener on a magical journey through highlights in his life. David Roth is a musical portrait artist who conveys a wealth of stories, anecdotes and remembered scenes with a physically felt intensity. This album is reminiscent, too, of an much-loved anthology of poetry, like one of those marvellous books which one can simply open at any page. That extraordinary feeling of warmth and familiarity that takes us by surprise when listening to this music comes from the sheer magic of the melodies…
A spicy mix of rarities, alternates and previously unissued R&B goodies from South Louisiana and S.E. Texas, where you are never too far from a bayou and some good rockin’ music. This 15th compilation in the “By The Bayou” series takes us back to the R&B sounds you would have heard belting out of a Louisiana juke joint on a steamy night in the 1950s or early 1960s. All of the tracks included were recorded in that party state, although some of the artists were based in Texas, crossing the state line to make music in studios based in Crowley and Lake Charles.
2016 three CD collection. 10cc's witty and satiric brand of tongue-in-cheek art pop sustained their reputation for being poignant songwriters for the entirety of their existence. They have notched up over 15 million album sales in the UK and frontman Graham Gouldman has been the recipient of three Ivor Novello Awards for achievements in songwriting. This collection features two #1 hits and a selection of prime cuts taken from across a very strong back catalog and features rare live versions of some of the band's most well-known tracks.
This recording chronicles the live performances of Bruford Levin Upper Extremities from 1998. The disc showcases the band's unique blend of jazzy modes with Crimson-esque textures and, occasionally, just plain weirdness. Many of the tracks become looser jams in the live performance. For those who saw this tour, the disc will be a great memento. For those who didn't, it will serve as a shining example of what they missed, and encouragement to be more careful not to pass up subsequent tours. The band is Tony Levin, Bill Bruford, Chris Botti, and David Torn.
