Trombone master Don Drummond was among the seminal figures behind the evolution of ska – a founding member of the legendary Skatalites, he was the genre's most prolific composer, with well over 300 songs to his name before his brief career ended in tragedy. Even prior to the birth of ska, Drummond was already regarded as something of a Jamaican legend for his jazz prowess; as a teacher at West Kingston's Alpha Boys School, he also mentored up-and-comers including Tommy McCook, Rico Rodriguez, Vernon Muller, Joe Harriott, and Vincent Gordon. Beginning his studio career in 1956, he primarily cut specials, recordings originally designed strictly for sound system play; in 1959, however, these specials began receiving proper commercial release in both Jamaica and England. As a result, Drummond's star ascended even higher, and under the direction of producer Coxsone Dodd, he composed and arranged hundreds of classic ska recordings for both Studio One and Treasure Isle.

For 20 years, Joe Nichols has made a career out of writing sweet and simple country songs that tug at your heartstrings. And he’s right, they just don’t get old. That’s because Nichols never runs out of poignant ways to serenade his lady—on this album, he compares her to a perfect melody, a summer night, and heaven on Earth—in a way that makes him sound like a humble, helpless romantic. Case in point: “If I was a Beatle, I’d sing about yesterday/If I was James Taylor I’d sing about fire and rain/If I was Elvis, I’d sing about by my shoes/But since I’m just me, I’ll sing about you.”

Joseph Carl Firrantello, known as Joe Farrell, was an American jazz saxophonist and flautist. He is best known for a series of albums under his own name on the CTI record label and for playing in the initial incarnation of Chick Corea's "Return to Forever". "Upon This Rock" is his album, released in 1974.

Recorded in 1972 and released in 1973 with Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clarke, and Jack DeJohnette, Joe Farrell's Moon Germs was a foray into the electric side of jazz. On the opener, "Great George," Farrell leads off with the hint of a melody before careening into legato streams of thought along striated intervallic paths. DeJohnette is like a machine gun, quadruple-timing the band as Clarke moves against the grain in a series of fours and eights, and Hancock's attempts to keep the entire thing anchored are almost for naught. On the title track there is more of a funk backdrop, but the complex, angular runs and insane harmonic reaches Farrell attempts on his soprano, crack, falter, and ultimately turn into something else; the sheer busy-ness of the track is dazzling.

The track that gives this album its deceptively ominous titl comes at its very end, after nearly an hour filled with sound and fury, light and darkness, joy and foreboding, controlled chaos and serendipitous serenity - all those qualities (and the many more) that Ivo Perelman and his cohorts have learned to coax from their instruments. But rather than strain the leash or burst the seams, the piece titled 'Breaking Point' serves as an inward-looking finale - a concluding meditation rather than a celebratory scherzo.

Joe Brown is a one off, no doubt about it. From the days of music hall and growing up in an East End pub through the skiffle era of Lonnie Donegan then jumping, almost overnight, into rock'n'roll, Joe's seen it all. He's lauded by his peers, loved by his audiences and had his achievements honoured with both Mojo Award and MBE. Recently he's been hailed as the champion of the ukulele, the instrument he played to such stunning effect at The Concert For George, and his 'Ukulele Album' continues to sell strongly world-wide.

Whoever claims to be a musician in the 21st century wants to make a name for himself, must first of all be adaptive, always deliver something different, new - at the cutting edge of time - and, as in the financial sector and the economy, a certain flair, have an anticipation for future trends. The one who succeeds in doing so does not write his songs by any means, and basically has little freedom of decision, no possibility of individuality.
