This final installment of a 1975 concert in Amsterdam finds tenor saxophonist Clifford Jordan in fine form, joined by Cedar Walton, Sam Jones, and Billy Higgins. The set includes an extended workout of Jones' "Seven Minds," Sonny Rollins' calypso favorite "St. Thomas" (which is marred somewhat by problems with the master tape), and two enjoyable works by Walton. Like the previous two volumes, this one is also recommended.

The second of three volumes recorded in 1975 featuring tenorist Clifford Jordan with Cedar Walton, Sam Jones, and Billy Higgins finds the quartet in top form. Walton's "Midnight Waltz" is the first of three extended performances, the upbeat midtempo waltz featuring a rollicking solo by its composer, while Jordan's suave playing is buoyed by Higgins' driving rhythm. Walton's "Bleecker Street Theme" sounds more like a set closer due to its barely one-minute length; then the focus turns to standards, including a spacious treatment of "I Should Care" that has Jordan taking quite a few liberties with the melody from the very beginning, followed by a glistening interpretation of "Stella by Starlight." The CD reissue adds Higgins' tribute "Alias Buster Williams," which opens with a drum solo and then transforms into an uptempo post-bop setting with a Latin undercurrent as the band is added.

The abandoned castles of Europe are magnificent markers of the continent's tempestuous history. But where they once hosted royalty, these empty, hulking structures are now overtaken by the wildlife and rich natural environments flourishing around them. From peregrine falcons ruling the bell towers of Germany's Heidelberg Castle, to exotic amphibians thriving in the spring-fed fountains of Spain's iconic Alhambra, explore the curious history of these imposing European structures and the creatures that call them home.

Fresh off her Twin Peaks cameo, singer-songwriter Lissie is back with her first release since 2016’s My Wild West. This time around the Illinois native strips the bluesy guitars at times, giving more space to expose her syrupy vocal melodies over simple piano (“Castles” and “Blood & Muscle”). One thing this album has in spades is its ability to be featured in just about any film/TV slot with its divine montage-esque delivery. What it’s lacking is a musical explosion to accompany that belting voice at this point something Lissie seems to intentionally avoid.

This vocal group was denied critical acclaim unlike many vocal groups of the seventies and may have been considered just another Temptations wanna be group ( there were several ), however, this group was brimming with talent and while you can hear some Temptation influences, the Philly sound is quite evident as well. The lineup of the Futures consisted of Kenny Crew, James and John King, Harry McGilberry, and Richard Wright, who was replaced by Frank Washington. You may remember that Harry McGilberry did a stint with the Temptations from 1995 to 2003 as a replacement for Ray Davies who replaced Melvin Franklin.
