While its title and cover certainly suggest a record firmly in the bachelor pad/lounge music camp, Cool and Sparkling: The Liquid Sounds of Paul Smith nevertheless boasts a melodic ingenuity and technical emphasis that reward deeper listening. What keyboardist Smith dubs "liquid sound" is in fact a space-age pop precursor to soul-jazz, with an energy and groove all its own. Aided by clarinetist Abe Most, guitarist Tony Rizzi, and bassist Sam Cheifitz, Smith is too good a player and too clever a composer to settle for mere background music – structure is as important here as sound, and while Cool and Sparkling blends effortlessly with its surroundings, it never sacrifices substance for style.

Absolute Zero Cool is the latest novel from Declan Burke, one of Ireland’s most innovative crime fiction writers. ‘A genuinely original take on noir, inventive and funny.’ JOHN BANVILLE Absolute Zero Cool is a post-modern take on the crime thriller genre. Adrift in the half-life limbo of an unpublished novel, hospital porter Billy needs to up the stakes. Euthanasia simply isn’t shocking anymore; would blowing up his hospital be enough to see Billy published, or be damned? What follows is a gripping tale that subverts the crime genre’s grand tradition of liberal sadism, a novel that both excites and disturbs in equal measure…

Chicago Blues, Harmonica Blues

Rice Miller (or Alec or Aleck Miller – everything about this blues great is somewhat of a mystery) probably didn't need to take the name of the original Sonny Boy Williamson (John Lee Williamson) to get noticed, since in many ways he was the better musician, but Miller seemed to revel in confusion, at least when it came to biographical facts, so for whatever reason, blues history has two Sonny Boy Williamsons. Like the first Williamson, Miller was a harmonica player, but he really sounded nothing like his adopted namesake, favoring a light, soaring, almost horn-like sound on the instrument…
