Time3 (also known as Time Cubed) is a 1992 three-CD box set by the American rock band Journey. The tracks are arranged chronologically and include both studio and live tracks. A booklet documenting the band's history and song details is included. With the box set can be heard the progression of the band from the early days with heavy influences from Gregg Rolie, Aynsley Dunbar, and Neal Schon (1974–1977), to the changes the band made with the addition of Jonathan Cain and Steve Perry (1978–1983), to the differences of the band after 1983, including Neal's Jazz influences and the album Raised on Radio. The box also features several unreleased Journey songs, alternate versions or even demos such as "Velvet Curtain", the very early (incomplete) version of "Feeling That Way" before Perry rebuilt the whole song structure.
Legendary American singer and pianist Leon Russell has entertained the world for five decades, getting his start as an in-demand Wrecking Crew session player and playing on hundreds of hit records before he began releasing his own albums in 1967. Leon Russell's latest studio album, titled Life Journey, will be released on April 1, 2014. This 12-track album features newly-written, original songs and Russell's turns on classics that resonate with the two-time GRAMMY® winner as important to his musical trajectory. The album is produced by Tommy LiPuma and executive produced by Elton John, with whom Russell most recently collaborated for 2010's critically acclaimed album, The Union.
The dilruba is an old rare Indian Classical instrument with a meditative quality and a heartfelt sound that goes well with other instruments, creating a rich tapestry of sounds that touches the heart and relaxes the body-mind. This can be heard in "Mystic Journey", an album that features the dilruba combined with other instruments such as Indian bansuri (bamboo flute), santoor and zither. The album starts slowly with the dilruba and flute spontaneously responding to each other as if in an intimate heart to heart communion. The album ends even more slowly, taking the listener on a relaxing inner journey, step by step, deeper and deeper…
Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Different is right – as this obscure early 60s side shows Chico Hamilton really opening up, moving past the modern chamber style of the late 50s, into the freer modal rhythms that characterized his incredible work of the 60s! The group's the beginning of that sound too – with Charles Lloyd on tenor and flute, Gabor Szabo on guitar, and Albert Stinson on bass – joined by George Bohannon on trombone, who slides around the grooves to expand the bottom of the album's sound nicely!
Two of the most distinctive talents of this new generation get together in the recording studio to give life to what will no doubt be considered one of the best productions of the year. A very fascinating combination intuitively born from CAMJazz and its producer, Ermanno Basso, who had already worked with both musicians with great result, and therefore knew them well. Recorded in the prestigious Bauer Studios in Ludwigsburg (Germany), “Through The Journey” is an album that is atypical, lyrical and enchanting. A meeting of two musicians who seem to have known each other forever: their instruments speak and listen to one another, completely improvising and giving life to moments that don’t seem created impromptu, but instead note after note they are structured and take on shapes that are defined and flowing.
