Hammock go massive as they meditate on grand themes of death and loss, their music ever larger, more expansive. Every song a mountaintop vista with a clear view to the horizon, unencumbered by clouds, in all directions. Departure Songs demands that it be played loudly so that the details in each track can breathe, whether it is the androgynous, falsetto vocals of Marc Byrd or the angelic voice of Christine Glass Byrd or just a little bit of guitar in the background, this record is nuanced in a most compelling fashion. The arrangements beg to be picked apart - soaring guitars, propulsive bass, and hypnotic strings. The vocals work wonderfully as an instrument, but when the words finally become understandable, they cause shivers.

In her eclectic fourth album, Bett Butler mixes originals with beloved holiday standards in multiple languages, many with her own English translations. Her bouncy bossa nova “Are You Alone for Christmas Day” recalls Astrid Gilberto and Stan Getz, with an elegant sax solo by Rene Saenz; and in “No Place Like Home for Christmas,” also featuring Saenz, Coltrane meets Clooney (Rosemary, not George). “Pat-a-Pan” veers firmly into Klezmer territory, and Butler’s four-octave range becomes a boys’ choir on “Gesu Bambino.” “O Holy Night” and “Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella” blend classical and jazz in intimate, lively chamber ensembles.

This CD presents the brief but remarkable output of songs by Duparc during his artistic period that was cut short by a nervous affliction. These works are beautifully performed by mezzo-soprano Sarah Walker and baritone Thomas Allen, with sensitive piano accompaniment by Roger Vignoles. The collection opens with Duparc's best known melody, L'invitation au voyage, which is a setting of a text from Baudelaire's Les fleurs du mal. The lovely rolling impressionist piano harmonies are played with exquisite fluidity, as they underscore Walker's velvety and intimate vocals. The Sérénade florentine is an impressionist lullaby to a loved one, delivered with touching emotion by Thomas Allen. Extase, Elégie and Testament show the influence of Wagner, and the Chanson triste is one of Duparc's early, Gounod-style songs. Au pays oú se fait la guerre (1869) is also an early work, but is particularly entrancing with simple modal harmonies and easily perceived song construction. By sensitive use of passing tones in the piano, the harmonies are subtly redefined and the music is extended dramatically toward the end by expressive on-rushes.

Label: NoMadMusic | Release Year: 2016

What is more legitimate than the fourth centenary of Shakespeare's death in 1616, is an album of melodies whose texts or subjects are taken from the inexhaustible treasure chest that is the work of the Stratford bard: Of legend - Ophelia, Desdemona, Shylock -, famous tirades, without forgetting his unforgettable sonnets, for four centuries that composers seize them with eagerness. The mezzo Isabelle Druet and her pianist Anne Le Bozec have chosen a few great hits (Schubert, Fauré, Schumann, Brahms, Sibelius), but also several works by musicians less often tackled such as Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Korngold or Gurney whose production Is far, far from being negligible. Druet plays with her magnificent vocal range ranging from murmuring to explosion, from joy to despair, all in several languages of which she seems to master the pronunciations with great agility.

For his first album for the Concord jazz imprint, vibraphonist Gary Burton goes back: back to some of the most enduring compositions in the jazz lexicon, constructing the program on Departure completely from jazz standards, except for "Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs" (the theme from the television show Frasier). Along with guitarist John Scofield, drummer Peter Erskine, pianist Fred Hersch, and bassist John Patitucci, Burton also returns here to the quicksilver, porcelain sound of the George Shearing quintet, Burton's first job after graduating from the Berklee College of Music…

Longtime fans of Abakus have been tapping their feet and twiddling their thumbs waiting for popular culture to catch up to them. Trends like vaporwave (and the even more ridiculous Simponswave) along with the explosive popularity of the Stranger Things soundtrack have brought a renewed interest to the retro sounds of synths and fascination with its early progenitors. Again, Abakus fans are like "What took you so long?" Russ Davies has been playing around with synths since the 80's, and in that fallow ground between its dusty relegation to back bins and its newfound renaissance, perfected the anachronistic sound and pleased his niché fan base. Which brings us to the release of Departure, a towering 11-track monolith of delicate synthwork and fun dance hits. While a bulk of the album trucks in this reverb-soaked, earth tone and rugby shirt aesthetic, there are also a number of kickin' house and techno tunes in the mix.
