Perfectly suited for the task of providing attractive and accessible music for public consumption, jazz pianist Eddie Heywood, Jr. occupies a comfortable stylistic plateau somewhere between the flashy Herman Chittison and the painterly Erroll Garner. Famous as an accompanist for Billie Holiday and leader of a widely acclaimed small group that recorded for the Commodore label during the early and mid-'40s, Heywood was forced by failing health to take a three-year hiatus from professional activity beginning in 1947. This fourth installment of his complete works in chronological order presents Heywood's comeback recordings, starting with four unaccompanied solos from 1950 and four 1951 piano studies with unidentified large-band accompaniment.

Sam & Dave Very Best of Compilation 12-track CD. These 12 tracks highlight the aptly nicknamed “Double Dynamite,” soul duo, Sam & Dave. Signed by Atlantic Records in 1965, the NY label promptly sent them down to Memphis and Stax, where they paired with songwriter/producers David Porter & Isaac Hayes to create a cavalcade of memorable R&B chart hits including “Hold On! I’m A Comin’,” You Got Me Hummin’,”You Don’t Know Like I Know,” “When Something Is Wrong With My Baby” and “I Thank You” featured on this Stax Classics release. And there is no chance of forgetting the iconic single that forever marked the dynamic duo as the soul men – their signature anthem, and 1967 #1 R&B/#2 pop smash, “Soul Man.”

Still the Same… Great Rock Classics of Our Time is an album by Rod Stewart, released on 10 October 2006. After four years singing pop standards from the Great American Songbook with great success, this album continues the notion of singing old material, but now in his classic musical genre – rock. The album is produced by Clive Davis and John Shanks (the former also produced the American Songbook albums) and includes rock milestones from the last four decades, including "It's a Heartache", "Day After Day" and Creedence Clearwater Revival's classic "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?", which was picked as the first single from the album. The album debuted #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, making it his fifth Top 5 and second #1 debut in three years. Stewart said he was "extremely happy" with the accomplishment.

This is the third and final volume in the complete recordings of Lil Green in chronological order as reissued by the Classics Blues & Rhythm Series. By 1947 Lil Green was beginning to sound more than a little like Ida Cox, even when handling songs from Tin Pan Alley rather than straight up out of the tried and true traditional blues repertoire. Comparisons could also be drawn between Lil Green and Nellie Lutcher or Julia Lee. While her "crossover" performances are worthwhile, there's nothing quite like hearing this woman savor the flavor of Bessie Smith hits like "Aggravatin' Papa," "Outside of That," and "You've Been a Good Old Wagon (But You Done Broke Down)." Green's own "Lonely Woman" has a powerful undercurrent running through it – there is even a remote possibility that Ornette Coleman was inspired by this record when conceiving his own composition of the same title in 1959. Even if the link is purely coincidental, these melodies have something wonderful in common. Green's final recordings for the Victor label are strengthened by the presence of tenor saxophonists Budd Johnson, Lem Johnson, and David Young.

Among the many genres Beethoven used to build on his reputation upon his arrival in Vienna, the violin sonatas allowed him not only to demonstrate his own prowess on the keyboard, but also played to the increasing popularity of chamber works that might be attempted by sophisticated amateurs. Following Mozart's trend of liberating the violin from a mere secondary role, Beethoven continued to bring about the equality of both instruments in all of his duo sonatas. Performing these 10 sonatas is the splendid duo of violinist Renaud Capuçon and pianist Frank Braley. The recordings take place in la Chaux de Fonds concert hall in Switzerland, a venue that offers listeners an exceptionally wonderful, intimate sound quality even on a CD.

“Emil Gilels stands out as giant among giants,” wrote Gramophone when the Odessa-born pianist died in 1985. “In terms of virtuosity he was second to none, yet his leonine power was tempered by a delicacy and poetry that few have matched and none has surpassed.” Beethoven was at the heart of Gilels’ repertoire and in 1968 he recorded this complete cycle of the composer’s piano concerto with the Cleveland Orchestra and its long-standing maestro, another musical titan of the era, George Szell.
