The English, historical-instrument, Baroque ensemble La Serenissima (the term was a nickname for the city of Venice) has specialized in somewhat scholarly recordings that nevertheless retain considerable general appeal, and the group does it again with this release. The program offers some lesser-known composers, and some lesser-known pieces by famous composers like the tiny and fascinating Concerto alla rustica for two oboes, bassoon, strings, and continuo, RV 151. What ties the program together formally is that it covers a range of Italian cities that were becoming cultural centers as they declined in political power: not only Venice (Vivaldi, Albinoni, Caldara), but also Padua (Tartini), Bologna (Torelli), and Rome (Corelli). There are several works by composers known only for one or two big hits, and these are especially rewarding. Sample the opening movement of Tartini's Violin Concerto E major, DS 51, with its unusual phrase construction and daringly chromatic cadenza passage: it has the exotic quality for which Tartini became famous, but it does not rely on sheer virtuosity. That work is played by leader Adrian Chandler himself, but he also chooses pieces for a large variety of other solo instruments: the Italian Baroque was about more than the violin. Each work on the album has something to recommend it, and collectively the performances may make up the best album of 2017 whose booklet includes footnotes.

We capture the spirit of the Grand Tour with music from Venice, Padua, Bologna and Rome. Well-known works such as the jubilant double oboe concerto of Albinoni and the jaunty Concerto Alla Rustica rub shoulders with lesser-known works, some of which have never been performed in modern times.

…The orchestral sound, as always with La Serenissima, achieves bright attractiveness and vivacity without feeling the need to pursue the taut energy of some other groups.

Suite à une rencontre fortuite en 2016, Ian Kelly et le Magneto Trio, composé des musiciens Rick Haworth, Sylvain Clavette et Mario Légaré, se sont retrouvés au studio Sunset Hill, à Morin Heights, pour une simple session musicale d’improvisation. Nous voici à la veille de la sortie en magasin et en ligne de l’album éponyme du groupe M. Chandler, le fruit de cette collaboration inespérée. Puisant dans la mélancolie, les textes signés Kelly abordent l’amour et la famille à travers le quotidien dans toute sa simplicité et touchent par leur vérité. La poignante Silence de glace en témoigne.

Linn's Vivaldi: L'Amore per Elvira, featuring the English group La Serenissima under the direction of Adrian Chandler, has quite a bit to offer the Vivaldi fancier. First are Chandler's excellent reconstructions of two of the fragmentary "Graz" violin sonatas that have not come down with their continuo parts intact. Chandler has filled in the missing music with entirely satisfactory replacements that appear to be seamlessly Vivaldian, rendering these works into a listenable form for the first time.

Gettin' Off/Outlook is a 2-for-1 collection of albums by Bill Mason and Gary Chandler. Both originally released on the Eastbound label in 1972, they remained out of print until Westbound/Ace in the UK released them on one CD. Outlook is the album in full while Gettin' Off features an edit of "Let's Stay Together" as the label claimed they had to sacrifice it due to the CD time limit. The CD had under 19 minutes left to fill but Ace chose to use only half of "Let's Stay Together".

This 20-track CD is the only collection that has all of his most popular recordings, from "Duke of Earl" through his soul hits for Constellation, Vee Jay, Brunswick, Checker, Mercury, and Chi-Sound, spanning 1962 to 1980 (all but three tracks were released before 1968). Some fans might prefer The Duke of Earl, which focuses on his Vee Jay years, but this has a much wider breadth, and includes "Groovy Situation." Curtis Mayfield wrote eight of the songs, although they frankly don't fully measure up to the Chicago soul he was writing for his own group, the Impressions, at the time.
