At the age of 21, vocalist Dana Lauren has a command of her instrument that many professional singers twice her age would envy. Lauren has a voice that's one part Roberta Gambarini and one part Diana Krall, with a dash of soul thrown in to spice things up, and she puts it good use on this ten song program. Her debut album—Stairway To The Stars (Dana Lauren, 2008)—produced by and featuring trumpeter Arturo Sandoval—covered oft-performed standards like "How High The Moon," "Devil May Care" and "Corcovado" but the follow-up digs a little deeper into the catalogs of Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers and the like. A few heavily covered favorites, like "That Old Black Magic" and "On The Sunny Side Of The Street," make an appearance but they're given facelifts that keep them from coming across as stale.

The prolific Domenico Alberti squeezed a surprising number of works out of a short and eventful life, achieving fame across Western Europe, particularly for the so-called ‘Alberti bass’, an arpeggiated style of left-hand keyboard playing. Yet his presentday reputation does not equal these heights, his fame largely limited today to his Eight Sonatas. This recording puts this to rights, showcasing Alberti as a composer who deserves to be remembered for centuries to come, as a musical poet possessed of remarkable invention and imagination. Alberti’s compositions display the simplicity and sensitivity of Clementi, the vigour of Mozart and, in the briefest of moments, an almost Schubertian or Chopinesque pre-Romanticism. His keyboard compositions are generally individual movements or twopart toccatas or sonatas, the whole full of melodic echoes and intentional reworkings, which form intriguing bridges between the pieces. The three distinct periods in the composer’s output of keyboard music are mirrored here by the use of organ, fortepiano and harpsichord (all of which Alberti would have had to hand in his day) – corresponding also to the period practice of ‘playing on all manner of instruments’, with individual pieces often not tied down to a specific instrument. This combination adds a talented keyboardist and international award-winner Manuel Tomadin who has a particular interest in Renaissance and Baroque music and historical organs. He brings all of his expertise to bear on this superb album. This 4 album set contains the complete keyboard music by Domenico Alberti, a First Recording.

An unfortunate reality for too many musicians—even those who are well-known—is that most of their audiences are aware of but a portion of their true work…their fullest capabilities. Recordings only tell part of the story, since artists often tour with groups that are never documented. And even those tours, for those fortunate enough to experience them, are often limited-run engagements—perhaps a few weeks in Europe here, a short tour of Japan there. Even in North America, given the vast distances that have become increasingly untenable with transportation costs, only those on one coast or the other, for example, might get the chance to catch a particular lineup and repertoire.

È il 2067. Sono passati 3 anni dal Gatecrash, il cataclisma che ha mutato quasi un quarto della popolazione umana. La Magia - conosciuta come Ether - è tornata nel mondo, e i mostri dominano le aree selvagge, arrivando in questo mondo da misteriosi portali che appaiono in vari punti del globo. Un costante segno di questo evento è l'enorme sfera azzurra di energia caotica, che scintilla nelle colline a nordest della ex-Colorado Springs. La città ha cambiato nome in Cerulean Springs a causa di quell'incessante bagliore - una città che ha cambiato nome tanto facilmente quanto il suo aspetto, ora un'imponente metropoli con i suoi lati oscuri. Quando il Gatecrash colpì, all'inizio fu il caos - ma dopo che le immediate rivolte vennero sedate sopratutto grazie alle Corporazioni, dando ad esse ancora più potere sul panorama mondiale, la popolazione si è adattata..
