Power / Progressive Metal | Country: Italy | Label: Walls of Babylon

Un debutto imminente, quello del 13 aprile, col nuovo lavoro degli Walls Of Babylon, “A Portrait Of Memories”, in uscita per l’italianissima Revalve Records, giusto giusto a tre anni di distanza da “The Dark Embrace” totalmente autoprodotto, che ci ha fatto conoscere per la prima volta questa band marchigiana metal power-prog del 2013 (anno di fondazione con la line-up attuale al completo). Stavolta viene proposto un lavoro di 10 tracce dall’evidente impronta di power italiano, come si coglie nelle sonorità simili a quelle dei Secret Sphere e per certi aspetti alla voce in stile Michele Luppi.

This CD reissue is one of the most rewarding Bud Powell recordings to come from his period in France. Powell (along with bassist Pierre Michelot and drummer Kenny Clarke) explores four of Thelonious Monk's tunes, Earl Bostic's "No Name Blues" and the standard "There Will Never Be Another You" but it is the final two numbers ("I Ain't Foolin'" and "Squatty") which really find the bop master at his most spirited and swinging. This very rewarding CD releases for the first time the alternate take (a faster rendition without a clear melody) of "Squatty," a song that (based on its original version) deserves to be revived. One oddity: the applause heard throughout this release was added on later because this was actually a studio album.

Doris Kearns Goodwin's classic life of Lyndon Johnson, who presided over the Great Society, the Vietnam War, and other defining moments in the tumultuous 1960s, is a monument in political biography. From the moment the author, then a young woman from Harvard, first encountered President Johnson at a White House dance in the spring of 1967, she became fascinated by the man - his character, his enormous energy and drive, and his manner of wielding these gifts in an endless pursuit of power.
