Return to Forever is the eighteenth studio album by German rock band Scorpions. It was released on February 20, 2015 in Europe and on February 23 in North America. As the opposite usually happens, the brand-new SCORPIONS studio album "Return To Forever" has appeared later in Japan - just three days ago - however worth the wait as it's manufactured on the superior Blu-Spec CD2 format, and apart of including the European deluxe edition 4 bonus, adds 2 exclusive to this release. This "Return To Forever Japanese Blu-Spec CD2" worth the extra pennies. The Digipak is velvet-textured, and you have two exclusive bonus tracks: the kickin' hard rocker "One And One Is Three" very much in the '84 Scorpions vibe (and a crime that it is not included in the regular CD), plus the hooky "Crazy Ride", a melodic rocker in the pure Schenker tradition.

The sixth album released by Three Blind Mice turned the spotlight on Hideto Kanai a veteran bassist who had been pursuing a very progressive, unique and uncompromising kind of jazz since the early 1960s. With his passion for educating young musicians and adventurous nature, Kanai has drawn some comparisons to another great leader, Charles Mingus, whom he respected.

There could be no better introduction to the sound of the Boston Symphony, in the repertoire in which it became most famous, than this French collection with Charles Munch. Sometimes wild and unpredictable in concert performances, Munch's conducting here is both visceral yet elegant, full of mystery when called for and unbridled in its passion at other times. 1962 Recordings.
