What seemed to have been fanciful exaggeration has since been transformed into spectacular reality. Diahann Carroll has made the entertainment world her personal province. A highly combustible diversification of her talent is deceptively packaged in this slim, dark-eyed, stunning young woman. Since her notable debut, at 19, in the Harold Arlen - Truman Capote musical "House Of Flowers", this regal young lady has become not only a singer of refreshing originality, but at the same time she has matured into a persuasive stage personality and a convincing motion picture actress. Here, in Nobody Sees Me Cry, she makes her record album debut.

The connection between Michael Jackson and jazz seems tentative to non-existent until it's factored in he reached his greatest heights as an artist when collaborating with producer/arranger extraordinaire Quincy Jones. The unlikely pairing of Jackson and Jones brought out a degree of professionalism, maturity and poise in the late King of Pop that did not fully emerge when he was the precocious young boy performing with his brothers in the Jackson Five. Had the Jackson Five worked with Jones, Jackson might never have gone mushy with ballads such as "Ben," where he lovingly crooned to a rat.

Barbara Carroll is an elegant jazz pianist, composer and vocalist, long recognized as one of the premier players of swinging jazz piano and expressive vocals. Her inventive piano playing and totally unique vocal sound leads her into transforming any composition into her own art with her trade-mark emotional directness and respect for the tune, its lyrics and its many possibilities. According to Stephen Holder of the New York Times, "Ms. Carroll plays with an impeccable technique in which harmonies burst into flower. In recent decades she has embraced singing in a parlando style that is witty, literate, discreetly sexy and at times heartbreakingly honest".

Al centro del romanzo troviamo Milo, un’anima davvero antica: ha già vissuto 9.995 volte e non ha nessuna intenzione di smettere. Anziché cercare di raggiungere la perfezione, il nirvana, che gli sembra una cosa piuttosto noiosa, egli preferisce infatti continuare a vivere una vita dopo l’altra rimanendo nel ciclo della reincarnazione, così da poter continuare la sua relazione con la Morte (o “Suzie”, come preferisce essere chiamata). Ciò che ancora Milo non sa è che le anime non sono eterne: si sta rapidamente avvicinando il momento in cui il suo ciclo si esaurirà e lui sarà cancellato per sempre se non raggiungerà la perfezione. Avrà solo altre cinque vite per provarci, e gli serviranno tutte per riuscire a salvare se stesso e, forse, l’intero genere umano…

What the world needs more of is intelligently planned, stupendously played, and brilliantly recorded collections like this one. These two discs contain all the piano works of Michael Tippett, works that come from every period of the composer's very long life except his very last. It includes the youthful, tuneful Piano Sonata No. 1 written between 1936 and 1938 and revised in 1941, the massive Fantasia on a Theme of Handel from 1941, the exuberant Piano Concerto from 1955, the experimental Piano Sonata No. 2, the gnomic almost Beethovenian Piano Sonata No. 3 from 1973, and the gnarly post-Beethovenian Piano Sonata No. 4. It features a bravura performance by pianist Steven Osborne that makes the best case for all the music, no matter how outré or recherché its harmonic proclivities or rhythmic audacities. Osborne has the emotional enthusiasm, intellectual clarity, physical strength, and sheer willpower to make listeners believe that Tippett is a major English composer and make them wonder why they ever doubted it. With the superlative accompaniment of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Martyn Brabbins in the Concerto and the Fantasia and the sparkling recording by Andrew Keener for Hyperion, this disc marks a major step forward in the Tippett discography.
