Mark Knopfler's fine soundtrack to the film Metroland nicely evokes the picture's wistful, nostalgic atmosphere. Rounding out the collection are late-'70s classics from Dire Straits ("Sultans of Swing"), Elvis Costello ("Alison") and the Stranglers ("Peaches"), in addition to left-field inclusions like Françoise Hardy's "Tous Les Garcons et Les Filles" and Django Reinhardt's "Blues Clair."…

Al professore che lo interroga, Christopher Lloyd ama rispondere "J'habite Metroland", adoperando il nome di una fermata della storica Metropolitan Line di Londra, "meglio di Eastwick, più esotico di Middlesex", per indicare la sonnacchiosa periferia urbana in cui vive. "Uno abitava in quella zona perché da li era facile andarsene", osserva Chris, che ad andarsene, insieme all'inseparabile amico Toni Barbarowski, come lui sedicenne, come lui francofilo e arrabbiato, come lui appassionato di arte e ragazze, si prepara con metodo. Nel frattempo i due aspiranti flâneurs, fedeli ai dettami dei loro numi tutelari Baudelaire, Gautier e Nerval, cercano modi casalinghi per "épater la bourgeoisie"…

Although this project may not seem to have much potential at first glance, tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano's tribute to Frank Sinatra is consistently brilliant and inventive. Since Sinatra recorded countless songs, Lovano had plenty to choose from, and he came up with 13 superior standards. Rather than just play the tunes in conventional swing fashion, Lovano is featured in quite a few different settings, caressing and bending the melodies a la Sonny Rollins.

Gilberto Gil's world tour in 1997 was a startling revelation for North American audiences who had not heard from him live in several years, if at all. Quanta Live was recorded in Rio not long before his appearance at the Hollywood Bowl – and unlike the latter concert, which was strongly rooted in the samba, this CD more fully reflects Gil's role as a pioneer of Brazil's cosmopolitan "tropicalismo" music movement.
