What you hear is how it went down.

GRAMOPHONE Magazine Editor's Choice - February 2016. Critical acclaim for Jonathan Plowright's two previous discs in his series of Brahms’s works for solo piano includes distinctions such as ‘10/10’ on the website Classics Today and top marks in Diapason as well as ‘Instrumental Choice of the Month’ in BBC Music Magazine. On his third disc Plowright presents the listener with two seemingly contradictory aspects of Johannes Brahms: the deeply serious, emotionally charged, but also meticulously constructed late Piano Pieces of Op. 118 and their precursor Op. 76 appear side by side with the unapologetic extroversion and scintillating verve of most (if not all) of the 16 Waltzes Op. 39, and the flamboyant Variations on a Hungarian Melody. Brahms’s fascination with Hungarian gypsy music stemmed from his friendship with the violinist Eduard Reményi, and found an outlet in several works, among which the Hungarian Dances are probably the most famous.

I coniugi Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender e Alicia Vikander) stanno facendo di tutto per avere un figlio, ma senza successo, quando trovano una neonata abbandonata in una barca alla deriva e la allevano in segreto come fosse loro. Ben presto quella creatura vivace e sempre bisognosa d’attenzione diventa la luce della loro vita, finché non scopriranno che la vera madre della piccola (Rachel Weisz) sono anni che la cerca senza riuscire a darsi pace. Tormentati dal dilemma se svelare il segreto perdendo così la figlia che ormai sentono come loro, la coppia inizierà a disgregarsi.

Another terrific thematic collection from those imaginative folks at Omni. Although there have been quite a few albums devoted to country prison songs this is a particularly well chosen collection featuring 28 tracks recorded between 1956 and 1972. It opens strongly with the superb Harlan Howard song The Wall given a powerful performance by Freddie Hart and keeps up the quality with Jaycee Hill's Crash-Out, Marty Robbins is here with one of his most intense performances The Chair - probably inspired by controversial execution of Caryl Chessman whose story is also dealt with in songs by Country Johnny Mathis, Ronnie Hawkins, Hoyle Miller and Jimmy Minor.

Weather Report's ever-changing lineup shifts again, with the somewhat heavier funk-oriented Leon "Ndugu" Chancler dropping into the drummer's chair and Alyrio Lima taking over the percussion table. As a result, Tale Spinnin' has a weightier feel than Mysterious Traveller, while continuing the latter's explorations in Latin-spiced electric jazz/funk. Zawinul's pioneering interest in what we now call world music is more in evidence with the African percussion, wordless vocals, and sandy sound effects of "Badia," and his synthesizer sophistication is growing along with the available technology. Wayne Shorter's work on soprano sax is more animated than on the previous two albums and Alphonso Johnson puts his melodic bass more to the fore. While not quite as inventive as its two predecessors, this remains an absorbing extension of WR's mid-'70s direction.

Many moons ago Primo Pitino, the DJ of San Francisco’s legendary Oldies Night, passed me a copy of his friend Nick Waterhouse’s “Some Place.” Nick was a local vinyl DJ and the kid working at our Shangri-la, Rooky Ricardo’s Records. Though he didn’t have a band at the time, Waterhouse assembled some local musicians to cut a one-off 45 in the vein of the electrifying mid-century modern rhythm and blues he loved. I threw “Some Place” on the Technics during sound check a few cities down the line and was blown away from the howling falsetto all the way to the end! I gave it a whirl every night from Texas to Tennessee and all the way back home to New York. Not only were the dancers’ feet responding, but they were also asking about the track on a nightly basis.

Label: Aparté

Enfin un beau programme musical méditatif autour de Noël ! Tous ces arrangements pour orchestre de chambre, mis en couleur de façon remarquable par l'Orchestre d'Auvergne, s'appuient sur des mélodies écrites ou jouées à l'occasion de Noël. Avec des compositions s'étalant sur près de 10 siècles, nous découvrons comment certaines se sont ancrées au plus profond de notre culture. Inutile de décrire Craig Léon, musicien éclectique et producteur légendaire (Blondie, Les Ramones..), qui signe cet album inspiré, dont l'ambiance moderne et feutrée ravira un public très large. Un véritable disque de Noël Zen et la fameuse prise de Son "Full Dynamic Audio" du Label Aparté.
