Voz, O Violao, A Musica de Djavan by Djavan was released Feb 02, 2009 on the Som Livre label. Djavan's first recorded LP, released in 1976, originated one year earlier, when he was awarded second place at TV Globo's Festival Abertura for his song "Fato Consumado." The following year came this album, which contained one of his biggest hits, "Flor de Lis," along with his previous award-winning song. The highlights are the wonderful melodies, the musical sonority of his lyrics (it even doesn't matter if you understand them, as his focus is on its musicality), the smart violao of Djavan, and the rich rhythmic interplay between voice and violao. All of the compositions are great, exploring from samba to baiao, and, more importantly, it's mostly an acoustic band album, with cool touches of a Rhodes.
The Radio Legacy is a compilation of the seven part Anthology of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the four box sets devoted to the orchestra s chief conductors Willem Mengelberg, Eduard van Beinum, Bernard Haitink and Riccardo Chailly, and also featuring more recent recordings with Mariss Jansons.
Reissue with latest remastering. Comes with new liner notes. The first of two sets recorded during a weekend in 1961 features the Miles Davis Quintet at a period of time when Hank Mobley was on tenor and the rhythm section was comprised of pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Jimmy Cobb. What is most remarkable is the way Kelly fits into this particular blend of the Miles band. Kelly's interplay with Chambers is especially brilliant, because his sense of blues phrasing inside counterpoint harmony is edgy and large, with left-hand chords in the middle register rather than sharp right-hand runs to accentuate choruses.
