Kenny Clarke was a jazz drummer and an early innovator of the BeBop style of drumming. As the house drummer at Minton's Playhouse in the early 1940s, he participated in the after hours jams that led to the birth of modern jazz. He is credited with creating the modern role of the ride cymbal as the primary timekeeper. Before, drummers kept time on the snare drum ("digging coal", Clarke called it) with heavy support from the bass drum. With Clarke time was played on the cymbal and the bass and snare were used more for punctuation. For this, "every drummer" Ed Thigpen said, "owes him a debt of gratitude." Clarke was nicknamed "Klook" or "Klook-mop" for the style he innovated.

For more than 25 years, John has been writing, recording and performing only original compositions, along with continuous touring throughout the US, Canada, UK and Europe in support of his music. His songs have been featured in major motion pictures and prime-time TV commercials. Many articles have been written about John in various publications including Guitar One magazine US, Blues in Britain, and a cover story in Back to the Roots magazine in Belgium. His music can be heard on blues radio shows every day around the globe. As a songwriter and musician, Studebaker John has emerged as a major creative force in the world of the blues today. If “Alternative Rock” is a meaningful description of progressive variations of this style of music, then John has laid the foundation for “Alternative Blues”. Ahead of the pack, with vision and foresight, creating a new standard and landscape for this music’s future… with John at the wheel, the future is now.

The companion piece to Conversations (recorded at the same mid-1963 sessions with producer Alan Douglas), Iron Man is every bit as essential and strikes a more consistent ambience than its widely varied twin. It also more clearly anticipates the detailed, abstract sound paintings of Dolphy's masterwork Out to Lunch, in large part because this time around the program is weighted toward Dolphy originals. "Iron Man," "Burning Spear," and the shorter "Mandrake" all have pretty outside themes, full of Dolphy's trademark wide interval leaps and playful sense of dissonance.

Musicien éclectique, le pianiste Clément Simon collectionne les projets dans sa région bordelaise natale avant d’intégrer le CMDL de Paris d’où il sort diplômé avec une mention Très Bien. Aussi à l’aise en sideman qu’en leader, en trio traditionnel ou bien dans un quintette faisant la part belle à ses compositions, on a pu l’apercevoir aux côtés de Didier Lockwood, Pierre Perchaud, Nicolas Moreaux mais aussi Marie-Claude Pietragalla ou Raúl Paz. Pétri d’influences allant du classique aux musiques traditionnelles en passant par le rythm’n blues et la musique de film, il mûrit un jazz unique, fait de lyrisme et de modernité.

Twelve CD box set collection featuring all of Allan Holdsworth's solo albums from 1982-2003. That title is no hyperbole-it was a proclamation that ran on the cover of Guitar Player Magazine in 2008, and is a feeling shared by fans and guitarists all around the world. Still, though, Holdsworth remains largely under-rated; many who admire his most famous work have overlooked dozens of fascinating finds to be made on his decades of recordings. This collection is a treasure trove of such discoveries, as it brings you all 11 of his albums as a solo artist, producer and group leader since 1980 plus the live-in-Tokyo album Then! And a 40-page booklet full of liner notes and archival photos. You also get previously unreleased bonus tracks, and all these albums have been newly remastered from the original tapes: I.O.U. (1982), Road Games (1983), Metal Fatigue (1985), Atavachron (1986), Sand (1987), Secrets (1989), Wardenclyffe Tower (1992), Hard Hat Area (1993), None Too Soon (1996), The Sixteen Men Of Tain (2000), Flat Tire (2001) and Then! (2003).
