John Hammond's latest album marks a major departure in one respect – for the first time in anyone's memory, he sings, but plays nothing on one of his records, while Little Charlie & the Nightcats, led by guitarist Charlie Baty, handle the guitars and everything else. The difference is very subtle, the playing maybe a little less flashy than Hammond's already restrained work – think of how good Muddy Waters sounded on the early-'60s records where he sang and didn't play. And that comparison is an apt one – even more than 35 years after he started, Hammond inevitably ends up sounding like its 1961 and he's working at Chess studios in Chicago, cutting songs between Muddy Waters sessions. Harpist Rick Estrin also contributes a smooth and eminently enjoyable original amid a brace of covers of blues standards. There is not a weak number here, and this band is a kick to listen to, sounding more naturally authentic than anybody in the 1990's has a right to (Baty's quiet pyrotechnics on "Lookin' for Trouble" would make this record worth owning, even if Hammond's singing and the rest of the songs weren't as good as they are).

A bit of a throwaway/curio I guess, but a nice find also – John Hammond recorded live in San Francisco in 1966 – and though a lot of the band stuff choogles along with a basic bar-room boogie that is neither intoxicating nor insulting it’s the wee moments that stick out and make it; showing, I guess, the making of the man still – early in his career, despite hitting the ground running in the early 1960s and with a famous helping hand behind him. Here he’s still in cutting teeth mode as he tears through a chugging Who Do You Love and basic blues shuffles and ballads (You Got Me Walkin & Talkin, Gambler’s Blues). There’s pure grit to the voice and when the acoustic and the harmonic come to the fore – highlights – as on Evil we get the first real glimpses of the John Hammond that’s been a hardworking fixture ever since.

Legendary singer-songwriter Albert Hammond will release the 14-track In Symphony, a collection of his best-known tracks - plus a couple of surprises - re-recorded over five days at Abbey Road Studio. With over 30 chart-topping hits and sales of 360 million records for himself as well as artists such as Leo Sayer, Diana Ross, The Hollies, Whitney Houston and Starship, it would be tempting for Albert to hang up the guitar and take it easy. But he's still writing and gigging, and after one especially energetic televised live solo show in Berlin last year, label execs wanted to hear more from the London-born, Gibraltar-raised performer. "This is a record that's not supposed to happen," he laughs, "The BMG people came to see me after the show and said, 'We want to do something. ' I said 'Well, I don't, unless I do my hits symphonically… '"

Andrzej Panufnik once wrote ‘Music gets its eternal beauty from an ideal balance of emotion and intellect’. Although Panufnik is primarily known as a composer of symphonies and large-scale orchestral pieces, his three original works for solo piano perfectly illustrate this motto. They are all highly crafted, demonstrating the composer’s fascination with mirror forms and symmetrical patterns.

While organist Johnny "Hammond" Smith never attained the status of Jimmy Smith, he nonetheless fronted first-rate bands and accumulated a fine discography. Recorded in 1961, Opus de Funk brings together two Smith albums in one package, Stimulation and Opus de Funk. Since the same band – vibraphonist Freddie McCoy, guitarist Eddie McFadden, bassist Wendell Marshall, and drummer Leo Stevens – played on both sets, and since both albums aren't very long by contemporary standards, the pair fit snuggly on the same CD. The really unusual element here is the presence of McCoy, because one doesn't usually associate vibes with jazz organ combos.
