Review by Scott Yanow

Tenors Al Cohn and Zoot Sims led a regular two-tenor quintet for a few years in the late '50s and then had an occasional musical partnership during the next couple of decades. Accompanied by pianist Mose Allison (who was then unknown), bassist Teddy Kotick and drummer Nick Stabulas, the two very complementary tenors play five of Cohn's swinging originals (including "Halley's Comet," named after John Haley "Zoot" Sims!) plus five standards. The mid- to late '50s were a period of intense recording activity and this album is one of the underrated gems that was somewhat overlooked at the time.
Originally released in 1957, Al and Zoot was reissued on CD in 1997.

Hamza el Din - Music of Nubia (1965)
Instrumental And Vocal Music Of Nubia
MP3 | 160Kbps | | 50mb
Genre: World / Ethnic / Arabic / Nubian

Hamza's debut recording swept the music world off its feet, and it's still clear why: his distinctive oud style was unlike anything else that came before, the songs are works of astonishing beauty, and the spirituality that pervades his music is evident from the first note of the oud.

Hamza El Din, the celebrated Nubian musician whose rich fusion of Arabic and Nubian sounds entranced audiences worldwide and inspired colleagues like the Grateful Dead and Kronos Quartet, died Monday, May 22nd, at a Berkeley hospital from a gallbladder infection. He was 76. A longtime Oakland resident, Mr. El Din was a subtle master of the oud, the Arabic precursor of the lute, and the tar, the single-skinned drum that originated in Nubia, the ancient upper Nile land that was largely submerged after the Aswan Dam was built in the 1960s. Mr. El Din sought to preserve his native culture, singing Nubian songs and stories in a warm, reedy voice that merged with his instrumental overtones to create music of quiet intensity and beauty.

"It was mesmerizing. Hypnotic and trancelike,'' said Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart. "Hamza taught me about the romancing of the drum. His music was very subtle and multilayered.

"He was a deep listener,'' added Hart, who practiced daily for six years to master the tar Mr. El Din gave him. Sometimes the music they played together was so soft "we could hardly hear ourselves. He'd just suck you into this vortex, and all of a sudden what was quiet seemed loud in its intensity. He suspended time."

Almost 4 decades have elapsed since Hamza El Din started his sacred mission of promoting, developing and presenting the Nubian Culture to the world. He was one of the many thousands suffering in the Nubian Diaspora resulting from the loss of hometowns and villages after inundation by the waters of the Aswan High Dam. His sentiments are deeply expressed through his songs, in which his longing is expressed by calling Nubia, the daughter of mother earth. His name remains synonymous with Nubia, Nubian Music and culture. His long and cumbersome journey was accompanied by his oud (lute) and tar (the traditional Nubian instrument). His style is simple and majestically powerful. With a charismatic voice, and only a few taps on the tar along with tender play on the oud he can make all Nubians hear themselves.

Rabih Abou Khalil - Arabian Waltz (1996)
MP3 | 320Kbps | | 80mb + 57mb | Full Covers
Genre: Jazz / World Fusion

Arabian Waltz is the pinnacle of Rabih Abou-Khalil's achievement as a composer and arranger. It is a sublime fusion of jazz, Middle Eastern traditional music, and Western classical. In addition to Abou -Khalil on oud (the Arabic lute), Michel Godard on the tuba and the serpent (the tuba's antique kinsman), and Nabil Khaiat on frame drums, the album also features the Balanescu String Quartet instead of the usual trumpet or sax. The presence of the Balanescu might seem to pose a dilemma for the composer: traditional Middle Eastern music uses no harmony but a string quartet is all about harmony. Abou-Khalil achieves a compromise by generally writing the string parts in unison (or in octaves), in effect using the quartet as a single voice, but also letting the quartet split up to play parts in unison with the other instruments or to provide ornamentation. Without surrendering jazziness at all, the presence of the strings makes possible a wondrous atmosphere, almost as if one is listening to the soundtrack of a classy movie set in Beirut or Damascus during the '40s. This feeling is greatest on "Dreams of a Dying City" with its brooding tuba and cello motifs and grave, repeated rhythms. "The Pain After" starts with an impressive tuba solo that turns into a long interlude for tuba and string quartet; sad, slow music that sounds like one of Beethoven's late quartets. Then Abou-Khalil finally enters on oud, bringing a sustained note of wistfulness. Fortunately, beside the darker numbers lie the propulsive drama of "Arabian Waltz" and the bobbing and weaving quirkiness of "Ornette Never Sleeps." Abou-Khalil is known for experimenting with the possibilities his guest musicians bring to his style. In this case, the guests have inspired the host to reach a new height and maybe even a new style. This recording suits every fan of world music, jazz, classical, or just good music. ~ Kurt Keefner, All Music Guide

Rabih Abou-Khalil - Il Sospiro (2002)
MP3 | 192Kbps | | 96mb
Genre: Jazz / World Fusion

With more than half a million records sold, Rabih Abou-Khalil is among the top artists on the European jazz market. His name has long been associated with a musical style quite his own that is rooted in Arab tradition, American jazz and European classical music alike but goes far beyond all these. Raised in the cosmopolitan climate of Beirut (Lebanon), Abou-Khalil studied the oud, the Arab short-neck lute, from an early age. Forced by civil war to leave his home country in 1978, he went to Munich (Germany) to study classical flute at the conservatory. From the European perspective, he re- discovered Arab music in a new way and developed possibilities for himself to work simultaneously in two basically different musical systems. A new genre was born.

Abou-Khalil's complex compositions, often based on odd and changing metres, using Arab scales and integrating improvised statements, tend to meander charmingly like oriental tales. In a dozen recordings Abou-Khalil has proved his musical concept to work in different settings: with Arab musicians like Selim Kusur (nay) or Nabil Khaiat (percussion), with great jazz soloists like Charlie Mariano (sax) or Kenny Wheeler (trumpet), with world music protagonists like Michel Godard (tuba) and Milton Cardona (percussion) and even with classical ensembles like Balanescu Quartet and Kronos Quartet.

On his first recording as an unaccompanied oud player, Rabih Abou-Khalil steps forward to new ground. "Il Sospiro" came to life as some kind of musical diary over a period of two years. Whenever the artist felt the inner need to document new musical ideas, he called up his collaborator and sound engineer Walter Quintus for studio time. With great spontaneity and extraordinary sound quality guaranteed, the listener will feel as if sitting in the same room with the musician. "Il Sospiro" shows an intimate, fresh and emotional way of playing the oud that neither aims at virtuosity nor nostalgia. Rich of melody, rhythm, dynamics and creative form, "Il Sospiro" presents something very rare: a personal statement of unpretentious, natural beauty.

Hamza el Din - Al Oud (1965)
Instrumental And Vocal Music Of Nubia
MP3 | 192Kbps | | 65mb
Genre: World / Ethnic / Arabic / Nubian

Performing on the oud (the Arabian short-necked lute) and the tar (the ancient single-skinned frame drum of the upper Nile), along with his gentle voice and original compositions, Hamza combines the subtleties of Arabic music with the indigenous music of his native Nubia. He has single-handedly forged a new music, essentially a Nubian/ Arabic fusion but one in line with both traditions and informed by Western conservatory training. His music has captured the interest of listeners worldwide.

First discovered by Western audiences through his performance at the Newport Folk Festival, the U.N. Human Rights Day and Vanguard recordings in 1964, his 1971 Nonesuch recording, Escalay: The Water Wheel is legendary among musicians and connoisseurs. The Escalay album, 1971 Nonesuch recording, was re-released in 1998. His best known recording in the U.S. is Eclipse, produced and engineered by Grateful Dead percussionist Mickey Hart. Hamza's music has also appeared in movies soundtracks including the Black Stallion, You Are What You Eat and, The Passion in the Desert. Hamza has appeared regularly with the Kronos Quartet, which included Escalay: the Water Wheel on their chart-topping Pieces of Africa album (Elektra/ Nonesuch, 1992). From 1995 to 1997, Hamza toured most of the world. Hamza's 1996 album, Available Sound: Darius debuted from Lotus Records (Salzburg, Austria) and was nominated for the European equivalent of the Grammy, the Preis der Deutschen Schallplatten Kritik. A new CD, A Wish, by Sounds True was released in May 1999. Hamza's compositions were performed by many ballet companies such as Maurice Bejart Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Molissa Fenley Dance Company and Lines Contemporary Ballet in San Francisco.
This is the second of Hamza's groundbreaking Vanguard discs, every bit as forceful today as they were when they were released. Al Oud is perhaps Hamza's most aggressive recording, playing with a fervor that ignites love in even the hardest of hearts. reviewer:
Al Oud plays from the start like a well scripted concert. Each song takes hold of the ear, guiding us to the next. The transition from each track glides without seams. Hamza gives the listener a perfect balance between his simple and beautiful oud playing and a voice so gently harmonious. Hamza El Din is a technical master of oud and voice. This is why he can give us his true expression. What he wants to pour into the listener, is as easy to him as drinking water. This is a true gift.

Wikipedia biography:
Hamza El Din (b. Toshka, Egypt, July 10, 1929; d. Berkeley, California, May 22, 2006), was a Nubian oud player, tar player, and vocalist. Born in the village of Toshka, near Wadi Halfa in southern Egypt, he is considered by some to have been the father of modern Nubian music. Originally trained to be an electrical engineer and after working in Cairo for the Egyptian national railroad, El Din changed direction and began to study music at the Cairo University, continuing his studies at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome; he also studied in Ibrahim Shafiq's Institute of Music and the King Fouad Institute for Middle Eastern Music, and traveled in Egypt on a government grant collecting folksongs. His performances attracted the attention of the Grateful Dead, Joan Baez, and Bob Dylan in the 1960s, which led to a recording contract and to his eventual emigration to the United States. Like much of Egyptian Nubia, his home village of Toshka was flooded due to the construction of the Aswan High Dam in the 1960s, creating in El Din a drive to preserve and promote his culture.

In 1964 and 1965, he recorded two albums for Vanguard Records; his 1968 recording Escalay: The Water Wheel is recognized as one of the first world music recordings to gain wide release in the West, and was claimed as an influence by some American minimalist composers, such as Steve Reich and Terry Riley. In this period, he mentored a number of musicians, including Sandy Bull. Later, he released albums for Lotus Records and Sounds True. His album Eclipse was produced by Mickey Hart. He performed with the Kronos Quartet on an arrangement of Escalay in 1992. His pieces were often used in ballet performances and plays.

El Din held a number of teaching positions on ethnomusicology in the United States during the 1980s and 1990s (in Ohio University, University of Washington, and the University of Texas), eventually settling in the San Francisco Bay Area after studying the biwa in Tokyo Japan during the 1980s. In 1999, he released his last album, "A Wish".

He died on Monday, May 22, 2006, at the age of 76, after complications following surgery for a gallbladder infection at a hospital in Berkeley, California. He is survived by his wife, Nabra.

Tangerine Dream - White Eagle
1982 | Genre : Electronic | FLAC - Lossless | 217 Mb | RS | Covers & Label incl

"Tangerine Dream experiments with an ever-widening lexicon of sound on White Eagle, though the arrangements tend to suffer for it. The album's principle work is "Mojave Plan," a four-movement, 20-minute song that represents some of the darkest music they've recorded in a while. Perhaps it was Edgar Froese's fear of nuclear annihilation that fueled this bleak view of the future, but the piece's effectiveness is undermined by the decision to continually dabble with different sounds. Where earlier extended pieces tended to move the listener from point A to point B, "Mojave Plan" doesn't flow so much as fuse disjointed sections together. The remaining songs are more cohesive, though Christopher Franke's sequencer patterns, while initially intoxicating, remain static here. That's not a problem on the brief "Midnight in Tula"; four minutes of contagious dance music that turns corners as tight as a Polyrock tune is a welcome respite at this point in the album. "Convention of the 24" clocks in at under ten minutes, and is arguably the closest in effect to Tangram et al. The album closes on a pleasant note with "White Eagle," a mesmerizing song that spins on a slightly off-kilter axis while delivering a lovely little melody in the bargain, in some ways suggesting a meeting of Tangerine Dream's sequencer-led journeys and Cluster's playful side. While it's ultimately an uneven work, White Eagle is clearly the sum of its parts, and readily identifiable as the work of Tangerine Dream. Perhaps Froese had relinquished too much of the music to Johannes Schmoelling, whose curiosity for new sounds often comes across as restlessness. Most likely, though, TD wanted to move its music into the modern age. People weren't as likely to sit in a lotus position for 40 minutes as they were in the '70s -- a point that Exit acknowledged. Conceptually, the band members fall back on familiar ways with White Eagle, but musically their minds are operating on a more contemporary level. It's not an ideal amalgam, suggesting the band was at a stylistic crossroads.

Louis Bertignac - Bertignac Live [double Double Album Live]
Original Release Date: 1998 | MP3 | VBR~220Kb/s | 198MB
Genre: Blues/Rock

Biographie de Louis Bertignac Quand on parlait de Louis Bertignac avant 2002, c'était toujours pour faire allusion à certain groupe de rock hexagonal ultra célèbre où Louis campait le rôle du guitariste génial. En effet, depuis la séparation du groupe en 1986, Bertignac n'a jamais réussi à se faire un nom sans qu'il soit associé à celui de Telephone, ni retrouvé le succès d'antan, que ce soit avec « Les Visiteurs » ou en solo, contrairement à son ex-complice Jean-Louis Aubert. Et puis en 2002 paraît « Quelqu'un m'a dit », le premier album de Carla Bruni que réalise et produit Bertignac. Dès lors, on ne voit plus seulement le musicien comme un guitariste d'exception mais aussi comme un excellent compositeur et arrangeur. Deux ans plus tard Carla renvoie l'ascenseur à celui qui fut un amour, un ami, un mentor en lui écrivant des textes sur mesure qui permettent enfin à Louis de montrer au public une facette plus sensible de son âme de chanteur enfin révélée sous un jour meilleur.

Le 23 février 1954, Louis Bertignac voit le jour pour la première fois à Oran. La guerre d'Algérie pour son indépendance bouleverse le pays, et la famille de Louis finit par quitter Oran pour Paris en 1957. Pendant qu'il passe une enfance paisible dans la capitale, Louis se met à la guitare, mais préfère apprendre en autodidacte plutôt que de suivre des cours rébarbatifs.

Bertignac fait ensuite de brillantes études secondaires au lycée Carnot (mais on ne sait pas s'il y fusillait les tables au blanco.) et s'entiche à la fois du football comme du rock anglo-saxon. C'est dans les années 1970 qu'il fait la connaissance de Corine Marienneau, de Richard Kolinka puis quelques temps après de Jean-Louis Aubert.

Mais avant d'écrire avec Corine, Richard et Jean-Louis la légende de Telephone, Louis passe son bac d'abord et se perfectionne à la guitare à un point tel qu'il finit par maîtriser l'instrument de bout en bout. Puis, quand Louis rencontre Valérie Lagrange et qu'il en tombe éperdument amoureux, il tombe au même moment dans le grand bain musical, Valérie lui présentant Higelin père qui l'engage alors comme guitariste sur sa tournée et sur les sessions d'enregistrement de l'album « Irradié ».

Une fois ses classes faites chez Higelin, Bertignac fonde son propre groupe, Shakin'Street avec Corinne Marienneau et Eric Levy. Mais l'aventure est éphémère, et les choses sérieuses commenceront vraiment pour Louis en 1976, lorsque le guitariste se retrouve avec les autres musiciens de Telephone sur la scène du Centre Américain de Paris. Dès lors, le groupe enchaîne les albums à succès, les tubes, les concerts à guichets fermés et marquera pour toujours l'histoire du rock français à l'époque encore en pleine découverte de sa propre existence : « je » suis un autre que le rock anglo-saxon.malgré les influences claires des guitares anglaises et américaines sur le jeu de Bertignac.

Mais voilà, un groupe de rock, c'est comme n'importe quelle structure : avec les collègues dès fois ça peut sérieusement coincer, même si par ailleurs le travail est super chouette et qu'en prime il rapporte gros. Car à l'image de la société, ou d'une société, le groupe de rock peut être composé d'ego démesuré, de types trop ambitieux, où le système démocratique au niveau décisionnel et artistique ne fait pas toujours bon ménage avec les désirs profonds de chacun. Il faut rajouter aussi les potentielles histoires de cours et du reste qui peuvent créer des tensions supplémentaires. A propos de Téléphone, on a parlé de tout cela, mais finalement, on ne sait pas trop si c'est pour des histoires de love ou d'ego que le groupe a splitté. En tout cas une chose est sûre, Téléphone en 1986, disparaît de la circulation.

Tandis qu'Aubert s'embarque dans une carrière solo avec Kolinka à son bord, Bertignac et Marienneau se retrouvent une fois de plus pour fonder un groupe, qui s'appellera cette fois les Visiteurs (non, ils ne sont pas fans de Reno et Clavier, le groupe de Bertignac datant de 1987, c'est-à-dire 6 ans avant la sortie du film), et où Bertignac est chanteur à 100% pour la première fois. Dès 1987, les Visiteurs publient un premier album où Bertignac balance des textes énervés et hargneux, montrant qu'il n'a pas encore complètement digéré tous les fils du Téléphone. Trois ans plus tard, les Visiteurs remettent le couvert en sortant « Rocks » qui ne marche pas très bien.

Il est temps à présent pour Bertignac de tenter le solo, mais pas de guitare cette fois, et en 1993, paraît son premier album en solitaire, « Elle et louis » qui ne fait pas vraiment d'émules malgré la participation d'artistes reconnus comme Manu Katché ou Vanessa Paradis. En effet, côté paroles, ça pêche un peu, Bertignac n'étant pas une plume née, et son parolier n'étant pas non plus au top. Lorsque Bertignac se met à la composition de nouvelles chansons, son label lui présente alors Etienne Roda-Gil, auteur fameux qui a écrit notamment pour Julien Clerc, Catherine Lara, Claude François. « 96 », le second opus de Louis voit le jour.en 1996 justement tiens, et propose des chansons rock bien rôdées. Deux après, on peut découvrir Louis en live dans les bacs.

Louis se lance ensuite dans la production et la réalisation, donnant un coup de main à deux de ses ex, Corine Marienneau et Carla Bruni, dont les albums paraissent tous deux en 2002. Le disque de Carla Bruni cartonne à grande échelle et Bertignac redevient brusquement tendance. C'est le moment alors de se retenter l'expérience solo, et cette fois, c'est au tour de Carla d'apporter son aide au musicien.

Après de gros soucis de santé, et quand même une bonne nouvelle, puisque sa fille Lola naît en 2004, Bertignac fait son grand retour avec un look très Patrick Eudeline et un album de rock tout en finesse enfin célébré par la critique comme par le public.Ouf, cela faisait « Longtemps » que l'on attendait ça.

THE SHADOWS - Platinum Collection
MP3 | | 320 kbs | 2005 | Rock and Roll | 317 mb

The Shadows are an English instrumental and vocal rock and roll group active from the 1950s to the 2000s. Formed initially as a backing band for Cliff Richard, they took the name The Drifters until finding out that there was already a thriving American band with that name. The original members were founder Ken Pavey (born 1932), Terry Smart on drums (born 1942), Norman Mitham on guitar (born 1941), Ian Samwell on guitar and Harry Webb (before he became Cliff) on guitar and vocals...

Yet another best-of compilation from perennial pop-rockers,who stepped out of Cliff Richard's shadow and shot to fame in the early 60s. Their unique brand of crisp, polished, instrumental rock, built around frontman Hank Marvin's fluid lead guitar melodies, went on to influence countless generations of rock musicians. This set features all their best-knowntunes.

The String Quartet Tribute to The Beatles
Instrumental | MP3 | 132~160 VBR | 64 MB | RS

String Quartet Tribute to the Beatles features wonderfully elegant renderings of several Beatles classics, and while it should come as no surprise that there are some gorgeous melodies on display here, the seemingly effortless construction of songs like "Come Together," "Hello Goodbye," and "All You Need Is Love" reveal hidden nuances in the melodies. There is also good deal of John Lennon's post-Beatles solo work represented (as well as one of Paul McCartney's post-Beatles songs), which is curious, given the high quality of proper Beatles' material that wasn't used, but that is at worst a mere quibble, since the renditions here are really quite beautiful, making this the perfect selection for the Beatles fanatic who has virtually everything else under the sun associated with the group.

Joe Bonamassa - Live At Rockpalast, June 28, 2005
Original Release Date: 2006 | MP3 | 256Kbps | 161 MB
Genre: Blues/Rock

If you chose to read this review, then you probably already know that Joe Bonamassa is one of the premier blues-rock guitarists of his generation - the twenty-something generation. Like his young contemporaries, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Jonny Lang, Bonamassa was already playing professionally when he was barely out of diapers, and at the ripe old age of 28, he is already a weathered, blues-guitar veteran.

When I consider some of the best blues-rock concert videos in my collection, Stevie Ray Vaughan's Live At The El Mocambo, Gary Moore's Live At Montreux, and Robben Ford's New Morning immediately come to mind. Bonamassa's new Live At Rockpalast DVD makes a strong case for being added to that prestigious list.

Back in 2002, I stumbled upon Bonamassa's A New Day Yesterday Live DVD, which was included as a bonus with his So, It's Like That CD. If you haven't seen that one yet, run out and do so immediately, if you can still find it. Although it was a low budget affair, it brilliantly captured one of the most incendiary blues-rock guitar performances I have ever witnessed. That is what originally cemented my status in the Joe Bonamassa fan club.

With this new Live At Rockpalast release, Bonamassa is again captured in an intimate setting, backed by the same killer rhythm section of Eric Czar on bass, and Kenny Kramme on the drums, but this time you get a powerhouse DTS surround audio track, and some crystal clear video production. The performance was recorded at the Burg Satzvey in Merchernich, Germany for the legendary German television show Rockpalast. The Satzvey is actually a magnificent 14th-century castle which presents one of the most unique concert settings you will ever witness.

The setlist for this show was rather short, only nine full songs along with a short jam, which surprisingly featured a couple of Yes classics. When I first saw "Heart Of The Sunrise" and "Starship Trooper" listed on the DVD case, I was quite intrigued. As much as I am a blues-rock fan, I am even more of a prog-rock fan, and Yes are the granddaddies of that genre. Now what in the hell did Bonamassa have in mind for this stuff? Well, during the middle of the encore set, while still strapped with a Gibson Les Paul, he proceeded to tear right into the frenetic intro section of "Heart Of The Sunrise", and after a couple of minutes segued into the ending section of "Starship Trooper". With that fat Gibson tone, and an extra touch of vibrato and sustain behind each note, Bonamassa fiercely transformed these two pieces into his very own blues-prog hybrids.

Four of the other nine songs were from Bonamassa's 2003 album, Blues Deluxe, an album that featured mostly older blues covers. The song "Blues Deluxe" originally appeared on Jeff Beck's seminal debut solo album, Truth, which featured a young Rod Stewart on lead vocals. You also get covers of B.B. King's "You Upset Me Baby", and John Lee Hooker's "Burning Hell" which are not quite on par with some of Bonamassa's best work. The one original composition that he played from Blues Deluxe, "I Don't Live Anywhere", was actually the best of the bunch."The River", another original composition, from 2004's Had To Cry Today, begins as a slow blues burner that showcases Bonamassa's incredible slide work, and then transforms into a ferocious blues-rock anthem.

The other thing that separates Bonamassa from the rest of the pack are his remarkably mature-sounding vocals. If you didn't know any better you'd swear you were listening to some legendary Chicago-blues veteran who has already lived the life he sings about. I think he is the best singer of all the bluesmen that I've already mentioned on this page.

As mesmerizing as Bonamassa can be to watch, the guy standing to his left, five-string bassist Eric Czar, can be a downright show stealer. A master of every bass trick in the book, he effortlessly switches between funky slapping, thunderous low-end riffs, and delicate interludes, but when he is needed to anchor the groove, he knows exactly what to do. As much as he enjoys showing off, he plays for the song. Drummer Kenny Kramme also lays down some incredible stuff, and I was amazed at how effortless he makes it look. This was one hell of a tight power trio and its a damn shame they are no longer in tact.

The audio tracks on this DVD sound outstanding. Along with the standard Dolby Digital stereo track, you also get a powerhouse DTS surround mix, that not only showcases Bonamassa's phenomenal guitarmanship, but also gives due justice to his equally incredible rhythm section. The bass thundered from my subwoofer, and the drum kit sounded like it was sitting in my living room. The video was clear and sharp, but the camera work suffered from the dreaded quick angle change syndrome. Too much of the show was shot with close-ups, instead of showing the entire stage, or maybe medium shots of Bonamassa and Czar riffing off each other. The close-ups did provide some excellent views of all the brilliant fretwork going down, but it took away from the overall atmosphere of the show.

Disappointingly, there was not a single special feature, or even a measly little booklet included inside the case. You'd think that when your gig is inside of a frigging 14th-century German castle that you might consider throwing in a little behind the scenes footage for the fans! How about an interview as well? A New Day Yesterday Live was just a low budget teaser, but this package could have been so much better. Thankfully, the most important elements were all in place, great sound, great video, and a killer performance, so who the hell am I to complain. Don't miss this one!

Tangerine Dream - Hyperborea
1983 | Genre : Electronic | [EAC-LOG] FLAC - Lossless | 238 Mb | RS | Covers & Label incl

"Hyperborea for me is one of the last albums that show me a part of the perspective that Tangerine Dream had built in the 1970-1980(1981) period(i'll include the 1985 album "Le Parc").Until 1997,when "Mars Polaris" explores again in a wonderfull manner the electronic space music, many of the studio can be easely confused with the light- soundtrack material and are very commercial."Hyperborea" starts very good in my opinion and taste with "No Man's Land",which is energic,deep composed,with not so many distinctive themes and togheter with "Sphinx Lighning" draws the TD lines and melodicity. The other two parts are not anymore reflecting that.The overvolumed percussion really starts to bug me at one point,and the light-themes used in other albums of the 80's (Le Parc;Underwater Sunlight) are clearly noticed.3 stars,although it oscilattes during the tracks between 2 1/2 and 3 1/2.

1995 Down Beat Critics & Readers Poll Album of the Year, Grammy Nominee Best Large Ensemble

"This is one of the most exciting jazz releases of 1995. Joe Lovano is showcased on four songs backed by a string section, is accompanied by a stringless big band filled with woodwinds and brass during four other pieces, performs Ornette Coleman's "Kathline Gray" with a chamber group, takes two songs as duets with his wife Judi Silvano (who contributes wordless vocals), plays his own "Wildcat" as an overdubbed feature for his tenor and drums, and does a straightforward version of "Chelsea Bridge" unaccompanied.

"Gunther Schuller's arrangements for the larger pieces (which include three of his own colorful originals: "Rush Hour on 23rd Street," "Lament for M," and "Headin' Out, Movin' In") expertly blend together Gil Evans-type orchestrations with aspects of modern classical music and freer forms of jazz, while allowing the music to swing. Silvano's voice is also an asset on three of the orchestra performances, and trumpeter Jack Walrath briefly makes his presence felt.

"However, this very well-conceived release would not have succeeded were it not for the talent, versatility and risk-taking of Joe Lovano. His improvisations (mostly on tenor) push the boundaries of this already adventurous music and his sound (which occasionally hints a little at Clifford Jordan) is quite original; on the basis of this date alone, Lovano must rank as one of the top tenors of the 1990s."

Review by Amy Hanson

As controlled as their self-titled debut was loose, War's sophomore effort, All Day Music, appearing a little over six months later in November 1971, was packed with subtly understated grooves. A hit with the fans, the LP peaked in the Top Ten, ultimately spending a massive 39 weeks on the charts. Side one is a gorgeous slab of mellow grooves and jazzed funk highlighted by both the title track and "Get Down," while "That's What Love Can Do" is an outstanding, textured, sleepy love affair revolving around the band's superior vocal harmonies and a tenor sax solo. The light, spare rhythm is like a warm treacle binding. With just three songs picking up the second half, War steps up the pace across the Latin-influenced jam "Nappy Head," the funky, bass-laden "Slipping Into the Darkness," and the all-out electric blues jam that rips through the prototype "Baby Brother." The latter was recorded live on June 30, 1971, at California's Hollywood Bowl and would, in revised and seriously edited form, be reborn as the monster "Me and Baby Brother" on War's Deliver the Word opus. Not nearly as fiery (with the exception of "Baby Brother," of course) as either their live performances or later albums, All Day Music is still one of this band's best-ever efforts. At times mellow enough to border on horizontal, the songs are filled with such texture and such rich intent that even in the band's quietest breath there is a funky resonance that fulfills Lee Oskar's vision fully.
