Recorded in front of a sold-out audience in Boulder, CO, and deftly mixed by GRAMMY-winner Trina Shoemaker (Sheryl Crow, Emmylou Harris), Indigo Girls Live With The University of Colorado Symphony Orchestra showcases Indigo Girls at their finest: raw, real, and revelatory. Spanning material from throughout the band’s career, the 22-song set features a mix of reimagined classics, including fan favorites “Galileo” and “Closer to Fine”, unexpected deep cuts, and tracks from Indigo Girls’ latest studio album, One Lost Day. Recorded live with the University of Colorado Symphony Orchestra, the GRAMMY-winning duo managed to find that elusive sonic sweet spot with this project, creating a seamless blend of folk, rock, pop, and classical that elevates their songs to new emotional heights without sacrificing any of the emotional intimacy and honesty that have defined their music for decades. After more than 50 performances with symphonies across America, the experience has finally been captured in all its grandeur on the band’s stunning new album, Indigo Girls Live With The University of Colorado Symphony Orchestra.
Roberto Esposito’s Piano Concerto No. 1, ‘Fantastico’ and his Piano Sonata No. 1 stem from his desire as a pianist and composer to engage with the major musical structures of 19th and 20th-century Classical and Romantic music. While drawing inspiration from the great composers of the past, in these two works he injects classical form with the musical idioms closest to his heart – those of jazz and the folk music of both his native southern Italy and the Mediterranean.

During the LP era, Django Reinhardt's discography seemed substantial and pleasantly challenging; along came digital reproduction with the emergence of uncommon or previously undiscovered works, and now there are enough Reinhardt albums to confuse even the experienced connoisseur. Perhaps the best way to experience his legacy is to map his career with chronological precision, as several reissue labels have successfully done. If you just want to get a really nice taste of what this wonderful musician sounded like during his early maturity, Indigo's Swing 47 might just be the album for you. It consists of 24 selections recorded in Paris between April and November 1947 and originally issued on the Blue Star and Vogue labels.
