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)

Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 57:52 min | 219 MB
Label: Mirare | Tracks: 06 | Rls.date: 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.

Nos ancêtres utilisaient la puissance curative des plantes aromatiques et des fines herbes.

Aujourd'hui, elles font partie de notre table et de nos habitudes culinaires : basilic, menthe, anis, coriandre, ciboulette, persil, ail, estragon, quels que soient nos choix alimentaires et diététiques, les aromates rendent notre cuisine appétissante, savoureuse, agréable et attrayante. …

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.

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.

Claude Mossé, "La Fin de la démocratie athénienne"
PUF | 1962 | ISBN: N/A | French | PDF | 496 pages | 27 MB

Dans cet ouvrage issu de sa thèse, Claude Mossé montre déjà en quoi l'étude d'une période relève la fois de l’histoire politique et de l’histoire sociale. Grâce à une lecture scrupuleuse de tous les textes qui, comme documents historiques, lui permettaient de "faire l’histoire" des conditions de la production et des échanges en Attique au IVe siècle, de l’évolution des rapports sociaux, du fonctionnement de la démocratie et de la politique extérieure d’Athènes, elle nous permet de reconstituer une époque sans jamais cesser de l'interroger dans sa réalité. …

André Campra's "Tancrède" is something of a "missing link", connecting the 17th century stage works of Jean-Baptiste Lully and his frustrated rival Marc-Antoine Charpentier with the late baroque works of Jean-Philippe Rameau. "Tancrède" was given its premiere in 1702 and was repeated again and again on the Paris stage. Even in the 1760's, when Rameau's "Les Boréades" had to be abandoned because of the death of the composer, it was Campra's "Tancrède" that the directors of the Paris Opéra chose to put back on stage because of its popularity.
