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.

Sautet était secret, ses films étaient célèbres. Son amitié pour Michel Boujut a rendu possibles ces Conversations, parues en 1994, ou il se confie sans retenue. Après sa disparition, il était important de rééditer ce livre dans une version complétée et malheureusement définitive. …

Taken from the best Debussy cycle to appear in the CD era, these repackagings gather the items that one-disc-at-a-time buyers tend to miss. Playing combines flair, care, and great musical enjoyment. High points include the superb Anne Queffélec as solo pianist in the Fantaisie and some rare items: the Rapsodie for alto sax, the whimsical orchestration of La plus que lente featuring cimbalom, and piano pieces scored by other hands. The Ulster Hall acoustic is spacious but clear.
Claude Williamson - Claude Williamson (1956/2014) [Official Digital Download 24/96]

Claude Williamson - Claude Williamson (1956/2014)
FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | Time - 37:59 minutes | 433 MB
Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Artwork: Front cover

American jazz pianist Claude Williamson, although born in Vermont, moved to California early in his career and worked with West Coast jazz heavyweights Art Pepper, Max Roach, Bud Shank and Stan Levey. Williamson also spent a portion of his career in television, starting in the late 1960s, including stints with both The Andy Williams Show and Sonny and Cher. On this 1956 release, a mix of Williamson originals and standards, the pianist is backed by bassist Don Prell and drummer Chuck Flores.
Jean Claude Pennetier - Mozart: Piano Concertos No. 21 & No. 24 (2017)

Jean Claude Pennetier - Mozart: Piano Concertos No. 21 & No. 24
Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 57:52 min | 219 MB
Label: Mirare | Tracks: 06 | 2017

With these two piano concertos, Jean-Claude Pennetier establishes the authenticity of Mozart’s gift. The tenderness and fire of No. 21 mirror the anguish and inner intensity of No. 24. The two pieces are close to perfect and prove, as Mauriac put it, that: “As long as men inhabit the earth, just a few bars of Mozart can remind us of the paradise we lost, a paradise that may still exist as long as we can hear the echoes of its laughter and tears in such divine music.

Claude Bolling Sextet - Jazzgang Amadeus Mozart (1965) Reissue 2007

The reissue of keyboardist Claude Bolling's recordings of the 1960s may prompt a positive reevaluation of his contributions. Bolling has been known, at least outside France, mostly for the flute-and-piano works he composed for Jean-Pierre Rampal; his recordings with Rampal hit a certain popular groove and stuck with the formula. They were undeniably appealing in a simple way, but they became fatally overexposed. Bolling's earlier recordings reveal more imagination in his treatment of the relationship between jazz and classical music. Take for example this 1965 album, recorded in Paris. It's one of the few successful jazz treatments of Mozart, who is notoriously resistant to jazz treatment. The difficulty comes as a result of Mozart's reliance on harmonic rhythm, or the speed of the rate of change of the harmonies in the music. This feature seems impossible to capture in jazz, which heavily relies on regular chord changes, but Bolling's solutions here, making use of a classic jazz sextet, are brilliantly imaginative.

Genre: Lounge, Chillout, Downtempo, Deep House, Trip-Hop / Label: Chall'o Music International

Claude Challe is an idiosyncratic figure in France's musical landscape, more a catalyst and some might say visionary, rather than musician. Challe managed to be on the cutting edge of youth fashions across the 1960s and 1970s, reappearing in the late '90s with even greater appeal. His CV boasts that he is an international DJ, fashion and nightlife entrepreneur, and new age guru all of which is, more or less, true. Yet a large part of his reputation comes from his association with celebrities (via his nightclubs) and his reputation as a ladies man non pariel. This and the fact he's long been recognized as Paris's premier club DJ.
