For the follow-up to Moment of Forever, his first set of new original songs in years, Kris Kristofferson decided to record a set of stripped-down new versions of his classic songs. This project, released on Atlantic Records and entitled The Austin Sessions, was a star-studded affair, featuring harmony vocals from Jackson Browne, Steve Earle, Matraca Berg, Vince Gill, Marc Cohn, Alison Krauss, Catie Curtis, and Mark Knopfler.
5 disc box set includes the albums: Me And Bobby McGee (aka Kristofferson), Jesus Was a Capricorn (out-of-print in the US), Spooky Lady's Sideshow, Shake Hands With the Devil and The Silver Tongued Devil and I. The albums are packaged in mini-LP sleeves.

24-year-old pianist Kris Bowers, winner of the 2011 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition, is releasing his debut Concord Jazz recording. Inspiration for the songs are the highly accelerated technological advancements of today, and the resulting power for those that use them. The talented sextet reflects this with playing rooted in jazz, but also reflective of an eclectic musical age (think Robert Glasper and José James). Guest vocalists include Julia Easterlin, José James & Chris Turner.
Ingeborg is a small-town piano teacher who raises her foster daughter, Nelly, into young adulthood. When Nelly is eighteen, she is shocked by the arrival of Jenny, her mother, whom she calls 'Auntie.' Jenny wants to take her to the big city and teach her to be a beautician in her salon. This is devastating news for Ingeborg, who is ill and does not expect to live long. Ulf, the stolid 30ish man in love with Nelly, begs her to stay; but she is not in love with him, considering him much too old. Instead, she is attracted to Jack, a new arrival in town. She doesn't guess that this strange young man with the striped suit and dashing mustache is her mother's lover as well.
