Released by Virgin/EMI, she began as a pop artist showing hints of soul and rap before moving more into jazz and acid jazz later in the 1990's and 21st century. One of the songs also features DJ Krush and Muro helping her out in her one rap song.

There's a good reason why the Move's eponymous 1968 debut album sounds like the work of two or three different bands – actually, befitting a band with multiple lead singers, there's more than one reason. First, there's that lead singer conundrum. Carl Wayne was the group's frontman, but Roy Wood wrote the band's original tunes and sometimes took the lead, and when the group covered a rock & roll class, they could have rhythm guitarist Trevor Burton sing (as they did on Eddie Cochran's "Weekend") or drummer Bev Bevan (as they did on the Coasters' "Zing Went the Strings of My Heart")…

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Those only familiar with Frank Rosolino’s trombone work may be surprised to find out that he also dabbled in vocals as well. Rosolino was highly regarded as a trombonist, especially on the West Coast scene, but seldom recorded as a leader; Free For All on the Specialty label is probably his best known work. Turn Me Loose features Rosolino doing double duty as soloist and vocalist, a la Chet Baker, and one could judge solely by the cover that this is an entertaining record by a man who is marching to the beat of a different drummer.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Really beautiful work from the team of Red Rodney and Ira Sullivan – hardly the sort of stuff we might have heard from the players a decade or two before – and a sophisticated batch of tunes that has them stretching out in rich musical directions! There's little of the boppish roots of either player here – and instead, the album mostly features inspiring jazz compositions from Garry Dial – the pianist in the group, and a real genius with color, tone, and timing. Dial's tunes dominate most of the record, and they really set the group on a great footing – horn trading between Rodney's trumpet and Sullivan's soprano, flute, and flugelhorn – supported with complicated changes from the core rhythm trio.

Not much is known about Renegade, apart from the fact that they are Swedish, and they were formed in Jonkoping during 1988. They were from an era where Swedish bands were quite popular. When you hear the material on this their debut album 'Time To Choose', you can tell that some of their countrymen have been influencial. Get this and you won't be disappointed. Essential for anyone who appreciate fine vocals and some catchy traditional melodic rock: DA VINCI, FATE, BAD HABIT, ALIEN, TREAT, TNT.

American actor, singer and producer played the role of rock singer Danny Romalotti, on the American daytime soap opera, The Young and The Restless, on the CBS-TV network. The best album that Michael Damian ever recorded in his career. “Rock On” was the #1 single on the Billboard charts in June 1989. Michael also released the follow-up single, “Was It Nothing At All” which won a BMI songwriting award. The album move to danceable pop songs and artists like Rick Astley and Paul Young in the 80s so if you are familiar with that style maybe not like it but still worth your attention.

Genre: Jazz, Fusion, Post-Bop

Kazumi Watanabe has for the past 40 years been one of the top guitarists in fusion, a rock-oriented player whose furious power does not mask a creative imagination. Watanabe studied guitar at Tokyo's Yamaha Music School and he was a recording artist while still a teenager. In 1979, he formed the group Kylyn and, in 1983, he put together the Mobo band. Several of his recordings have been made available by Gramavision and they show that he ranks up with Al DiMeola (when he is electrified) and Scott Henderson among the pacesetters in the idiom.

Reissue with latest 2014 DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. One of the key turning points of Louis Armstrong's career occurred at the Town Hall concert fully documented on this two-CD set, a reissue of the earlier two-LP release. Armstrong, who had been leading a big band for 18 years, was showcased with some musical friends who were all very complementary players (including trombonist Jack Teagarden, clarinetist Peanuts Hucko and cornetist Bobby Hackett), and the results were so exciting that Armstrong soon broke up his orchestra to form a similar all-star sextet.
