A virtual tour of Tokyo by helicopter. Very beautiful and very professional photography twilight and night Tokyo from the air. The film can be seen as a documentary, species, or use for relaxation. Have a nice trip!
Coming Up For Air is a studio album by Dutch progressive rock band Kayak, released in 2008. This is the first 'normal' album after two concept albums (Merlin and Nostradamus). Most songs are sensible and quite sad, like the fine Broken White. There are some pretty heavy ones as well, like the starter and the finisher Alienation and title song Coming up for Air (which are both great songs). Not as good as their masterpiece Merlin - Bard of the Unseen, but this disk will be a good introduction for everyone who wants to get acquainted with Kayak and hasn't done so yet.
There are the fortunate few who really encountered Chris Whitley's music during his brief lifetime (he passed away from cancer in November of 2005); for everyone else, recordings like this are gifts. Whitley's last official offering was Reiter In, recorded as he was dying – he was a pauper, an imperfect businessman who had been deeply exploited by unscrupulous labels and "handlers." The record was a way to leave something for his daughter, Trixie, a brilliant singer, pianist, and songwriter in her own right, and was the last we thought we'd get from him. On Air was recorded on September 8, 2003 at Radio Bremen. It showcases the artist many of us remember best: a guy with a beat vintage National Steel guitar with a stompbox for his foot, playing his songs with all the revelatory passion and pathos he'd written them with.
In a year notable by the too-high incidence of jazz losses, Charles Earland quietly left this planet on Saturday, December 11, 1999. Known as the Mighty Burner for the intense way he commanded the Hammond B-3, the always working, too-heavy 58-year-old Earland made his departure via heart failure following one last performance in Kansas City.
The popular and critically admired Chandos recordings of John Field’s expressive cycle of Piano Concertos are brought together for the first time as a limited edition 4-CD set and released at the price of only 2 CDs. A major forerunner of the Romantic school of pianism that culminated in Chopin, Dublin-born pianist and composer John Field had scarcely received his due until Chandos released the performances of the Piano Concertos by fellow countryman, Miceal O’Rourke.
Well, this is the third GAMMA RAY DVD release that comes 14 years after the Lust For Live one. Actually, this DVD with the longest title ever took some time to reach the stores…
