Skydog's "Thunder Express" compiles six songs recorded for French TV at Castle Herouville, France, in March 1972, with both sides of the AMG "I Can Only Give You Everything"/"I Just Don't Know" single. This release - highly recommended; indeed, despite having been recorded when the band were on their last legs, with an English musician replacing bassist Michael Davis, "Thunder Express" might just be the best MC5 rekkid your money can buy...the "KOTJ" songs sound great sans feedback, with all the instruments clearly audible The extended version of "Rama Lama Fa Fa Fa" sounds like the missing link between "Cold Sweat"-era James Brown and "Funhouse"-era Stooges, the title track (a Berryesque car tune) rivals "Sister Anne" as the Five's finest pure rock'n'roll moment, and there's a neat version of Detroit garage band staple, the Stones' "Empty Heart".

Shahmirza & Reza Moradi - The Music of Lorestan, Iran
1994 | ASIN: B00000E0C5 | MP3 320kbps | scans 300 dpi | ~186 MB

Lorestân is in south-west Iran. Until quite recently, it was divided naturally into two parts: the Pish-Kouh (literally, the front of the mountain) and the Posht-Kouh (literally, the back of the mountain). Today, only the Pish-Kouh forms the province of Lorestân, the centre of which is the town of Khorramâbâd; the Posht-Kouh now forms the province of Ilâm.

No document about the birth and development of Lorestân music exists. The original instruments used (the sornâ, the dohol and the kemenche) are amongst the oldest in Persia. Reliefs sculpted on stone representing musicians playing the sornâ have been found in Lorestân and the surrounding area. Other clues point to the historically rich past of this music and the central place it holds in the life of the Lor people. For example, the repeated use of Mâhour, one of the oldest modes of traditional Iranian music, or the practice of singing the verses of the poet Nezâmi (12th century).

Shahmirza Morâdi was born in 1924 and lives in the town of Doroud in Lorestân. In this country, a musician's craft is usually passed down through the family. Morâdi very quickly took his place amongst the best sornâ players and acquired great renown throughout Lorestân. In 1971, he began radio work; he then performed at the major cultural festivals in Iran, including those in Shiraz and Tehran. Thanks to the efforts of the Lor musician Ali Akbar Shekârchi, his first recordings were distributed in 1981; they enyojed great success throughout Iran. In 1991, Morâdi performed at the Avignon festival and in the autumn of the same year, his two succcessive concerts in the Châtelet Auditorium in Paris stunned the public and the press, who described him as the "Master of Breath".

His son, Rezâ Morâdi has accompanied him on the dohol for approximately fifteen years. Rezâ is also an excellent kemenche player, an instrument he learnt from his father.


"1. Sangin Se-pâ (10:12) (literally, three slow steps), also known as sangin samâ (literally, song with the slow rhythm): this is a three-time "adagio" rhythm which suits a calm series of notes and accompanies the movements of the dancers' hands. Due to its slow pace, this dance is appreciated by older dancers.

2. Se-pâ (11:40) (literally, three steps): also three-time, this dance is performed by taking three steps forward and one back.

3. Do-pâ (11:49) (literally, two steps) is performed to a faster time than "Sangin Se-pâ"; the name of this dance comes from the fact that each foot plays an equally important role. This dance is often performed by those in middle age.

4. 'Ashâyeri (19:40) (literally, nomadic). The movement of the arms is vital in this dance, which resembles a Kurdish dance. The two-time rhythm is executed by taking one step forward then one step back.

5. Shâne-Shaki (10:25) (literally, shoulder shake). The rhythm of this dance resembles a "se-pâ", but is much faster. The exceptional beauty of the trembling of the dancers' shoulders is a typical feature.

6. Savâr-Bâzi (13:56 (literally, the knight's game): this dance, described earlier, is usually played by two instruments: the sornâ and the dohol, or the kemenche and the tombak.

His first album (1968) was an instant success in France. It made him a star! Almost 40 years later he is still as good, as original, as charming and intense. This album has it all: The first songs (La Cavalerie/Ivanovitch/La Californie), the 'romantic' Julien ( Ma preference/This Melody/Fais moi une place), Passinate (Jaloux), Outradged (L'assassin). It's impossible not to feel energetic listening to "Macumba/Quand je joue/Si on chantait". Julien writes most of the music, Roda-Gil wrote the lyrics for 13 songs. Listen with attention to Dadabie's lyrics: That man knows a lot about love! Great compulation album, great as all Julien Clerc albums. Take French lessons if you have to! It's worth it! (amazon.com)

Iran - Ostad Elahi - The Celestial Music Of Ostad Elahi (2003)
MP3 | 192kbps | RS.com | 86mb
Genre: World music / Iran / Traditional / Sacred

Tremendous series of archival CDs by this late, rarely documented Iranian master of the tanbur lute, Ostad Elahi (1895-1974). This first volume features recordings from Tehran, 1964-72. For music of transcendational quality via stringed instruments, these are some of the most important releases of recent vintage. "Ostad Elahi is a fascinating figure, a unique 20th century musical giant. His whole adult life he worked as a magistrate in Iran, yet he was acclaimed as a musician embedded in a tradition of Islamic mysticism stretching back to the tenth century. Even after retiring aged 62, in order to devote himself full time to music and spiritual research, he never performed a concert either in public or for the radio. Elahi's instrument of choice was the humble Kurdish tanbour, a long-necked lute associated more with the epic ballads of central Asian nomads than the sophisticated delights of Persian classical music. In fact, Elahi doesn't play Persian classical in the strict sense, though that is one of the many traditions he studied. He is a prime example of a musician stepping out of the tradition, drawing on Persian, Azeri, pre-Islamic musics, even Kurdish popular tunes, stretching all forms to his own visionary purpose. Between 1964 and 1972. when Elahi was in his early 70s, someone finally got a microphone in front of him. These are no-nonsense, no-effects, mono recordings, and occasionally they sound like the teapot spilt on the tapes. But Elahi's earthy mysticism comes shining through, a relentless quest for the divine via the physical propulsion of playing, and then more playing.

As music was above all a means of reflection and prayer for Ostad, he always played alone or in small gatherings of relatives and friends. However, in 1960 Musa Marufi, a master of classical Persian music, discovered Ostad and in a long article detailed how he had been overwhelmed by Ostad's music. Marufi's account aroused the curiosity of musicologists, and from that day forward great artists and musicians such as Maurice Béjart and the late Yehudi Menuhin sought to visit Ostad and hear him play. Some of these musicians would later provide testimonials regarding the profound impact of Ostad's music on the listener. Combining extraordinary technique and spiritual inspiration, certain pieces of Ostad's music are so complex that attempts by Ruhollâh Khâleqi, Director of the National Academy of Music, and others to transcribe this music have met with little success. A few recordings of his work remain, which have been gradually digitized and released since 1995.

Ostad Elahi was raised in a special atmosphere permeated with spirituality. The village where he was born, one of Iran's mystical havens, is isolated within the tranquil plains of western Iran and has given rise to many prominent spiritual figures over the centuries. His parents, Haj Ne'mat and Sakineh Khanoum, had married at a young age according to the local custom of the time and had nurtured a deep affection and respect for one another. Haj Ne'mat was a respected notable, highly regarded for his honesty, courage, and knowledge. A man of profound faith, he also played the tanbour, an eastern lute reserved for sacred music.

When Ostad was six, Haj Ne'mat had an overwhelming mystical experience that radically transformed him. Renouncing the world entirely, he transferred the management of his lands to a third party and began dressing in the white robes customarily worn by dervishes. His wife supported him fully in his vocation and renounced all forms of worldly activities. Little by little the reputation of Haj Ne' mat, the mystic, spread and thousands of followers gathered around him. It is in this context that young Ostad began a new life marked by prayer and spiritual gatherings, in which sacred music played a central role.

As a master musician, Ostad's extraordinary skills were equaled only by the humility and depth of his character. Without ever seeking the admiration of his fellow musicians, his technical virtuosity and seemingly endless creativity essentially renewed and transcended the age-old tradition of the tanbour. Though music played an essential part in his life (he would devote several hours to it each day), he never considered music as a means of acquiring fame, but rather as a medium for meditation and a language for prayer.

Rooted in a tradition that has remained secret for several centuries, Ostad Elahi's music is truly remarkable and unique. Eluding classification in any of the conventional categories, this music has historically been reserved for devotional contexts. For Ostad, music was above all a means of contemplation and prayer, and he would therefore only play alone or in small gatherings of family and close friends. The recordings that currently remain of his work were made towards the end of his life under simple and nonprofessional conditions, often without his knowledge. While these recordings (totaling some 40 hours) have mostly been edited and made available after his passing, those who actually had the opportunity to hear him play were profoundly affected by his music, including several renowned artists and musicians.

The Tanbour

The sound of the tanbour and certain instruments is similar to celestial sounds. Where does this sound come from? It comes from the Beloved. If the soul's ear has awakened, one can hear secrets that are hidden from those who are only preoccupied with the material world.

In the East, the term tanbour refers to a category of popular lutes of various sizes, proportions, and tones, with the common characteristic that the necks of these lutes are longer than their bodies. The sober tones of the instrument, ranging from dry to mellow, have something immaterial, abstract, and almost ascetic about them, destining the tanbour to a serious and celestial kind of music.

In Iran, the tanbour was among the instruments played at the Court of the Sassanides in the 5th and 6th centuries. Later, some Kurdish religious groups would adopt this sacred instrument to accompany the chants and dances of their spiritual gatherings.

The Musical Art of Ostad Elahi
Born into a family and environment steeped in mystical tradition, the spiritual gatherings of that time revolved around sacred music, which encompassed invocations, chants, dances, and rhythms that were accompanied by melodies of the tanbour. A child prodigy, Ostad rapidly assimilated this sacred repertoire, as well as those of the surrounding regions. In order to fully develop the potential of the tanbour, he developed a complex and subtle playing technique that included all five fingers of each hand, notably the rolling motion of the right hand. Moreover, he doubled the higher string of the tanbour to increase its expressiveness, enhancing not only its potential for ornamentation, but also its overall range and richness. It would only be a matter of time before these innovations were adopted by the next generation of tanbour players. Today, it is widely acknowledged that his instrumental technique and art of ornamentation mark the pinnacle of middle-eastern lutes of the tanbour family.

"There are two things on which my time was truly well spent: the tanbour and spirituality."

Among Ostad's major contributions to the art of tanbour is an original repertoire of over one hundred pieces. Considering the richness of these compositions and their intricate ornamentation, this repertoire clearly transcends the one that preceded it. Moreover, Ostad used this repertoire as a basis for improvisation, an art form in itself which highlighted Ostad's musical genius and enabled him to play with a freedom never heard before in this type of musical tradition.

Through all these innovations, Ostad not only revived, but also transcended the ancient musical tradition he had inherited as a child. When we consider his significant contributions to the art of tanbour (including the physical modifications he made to the instrument itself), it would not be an exaggeration to state that Ostad Elahi was indeed the true creator of this art. Through his efforts, a popular tradition with a scattered and limited repertoire was transformed into a learned music.

The Role of Music According to Ostad Elahi
Parallel to the practice of music, Ostad Elahi reflected on the role of music and its relation to the soul and the Divine. On the path that must lead it back to its origin, the soul finds nourishment in music, which strengthens its fervor and serves as a means of communication with the Creator.

It was not until 1957 when he retired from the judiciary and settled permanently in Tehran that several people were able to gradually discover him. Ostad fully devoted himself to his writings, teachings, and sacred music. As his reputation as a sage and unparalleled musician slowly spread, people from all over the world began to visit him. Several thousand people were present at his funeral. Today, his memorial is an international site of pilgrimage.

Gil Evans - There Comes A Time (1975)
MP3 | 192Kbps | RS.com | 92mb
Genre: Jazz

This CD reissue of Gil Evans' There Comes a Time differs greatly from the original LP of the same name. Not only are there three previously unreleased performances ("Joy Spring," "So Long," and "Buzzard Variation"), but "The Meaning of the Blues" has been expanded from six minutes to 20, and two numbers, "Little Wing" and "Aftermath the Fourth Movement/Children of the Fire," have been dropped (the former was reissued on Evans' Jimi Hendrix tribute album) and the remaining four tracks were re-edited and remixed under Evans' direction. So in reality, this 1987 CD was really a "new" record when it came out. The remake of "King Porter Stomp," with altoist David Sanborn in Cannonball Adderley's spot, is a classic. The "new" version of "The Meaning of the Blues" is memorable, and overall the music (which also has solos by Billy Harper and George Adams on tenors, along with trumpeter Lew Soloff) is quite rewarding, it's a creative big band fusion that expertly mixes together acoustic and electric instruments. This was one of Gil Evans' last truly great sets.

In 1962, Gil Evans met Anita Cooper. They were married in 1963 and had two sons, Noah (born in 1964), and Miles (born in 1965). For four years, Gil hardly produced any music at all, and concentrated instead on raising his family. He began to record again in 1969, using medium-sized ensembles (usually twelve to fifteen musicians) in which electric instruments now began to play a very important role. The instrumentation also changed, with the number of wind instruments reduced in favor of the rhythm section, which was now augmented by guitars, percussion, and miscellaneous other instruments. A projected collaboration with Jimi Hendrix was cut short by the guitarist's premature death, but an album of jazz arrangements of Hendrix compositions performed by the Gil Evans Orchestra was nonetheless released in 1974. The orchestra began to tour outside the U.S., especially in Europe. In 1975, Gil Evans recorded There Comes A Time, which would turn out to be his last studio album for quite some time. All subsequent recordings by the orchestra were live albums, most notably those made in New York, albums such as Priestess (1977) and Live At The Public Theater (1980), as well as those recorded in London, including Live At The Royal Festival Hall (1978).

In 1980, Gil Evans recorded a series of duets with alto saxophonist Lee Konitz (Heroes and Anti- Heroes), and, beginning in 1984, the orchestra was hired to play every Monday night at Sweet Basil, a New York club. The Monday Night Orchestra, as it became known, played there up until Gil's death, and recorded several albums, including Live At Sweet Basil (1984), and Bud And Bird (1986). In 1985 and 1986, Gil Evans wrote music for several movie soundtracks, most notably Julian Temple's Absolute Beginners and Martin Scorsese's The Color Of Money. The year 1987 was particularly prolific, marked by numerous recordings as well as several European tours, including a concert with pop star Sting. In December of that year, he recorded another duet album, Paris Blues, this time in collaboration with his old accomplice, soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy.

Gil Evans died of pneumonia on March 20, 1988 in Cuernavaca, Mexico, where Charles Mingus before him had also come to die in 1979.

John Coltrane - Like Sonny (1958/1960)
MP3 | 320Kbps | RS.com | 80mb + 45mb
Genre: Jazz

This Roulette CD combines two unrelated sessions. Coltrane is heard in a quintet with the tuba player Ray Draper (their second album together) playing five standards (including "Doxy" and "Oleo") and Draper's "Essii's Dance." The 1960 performances are more significant for they are the earliest recorded collaborations by Coltrane and pianist McCoy Tyner.

Amazon.com reviewer:
The outstanding tracks from this recording are the first four from a 1960 session with McCoy Tyner, Steve Davis and Billy Higgins. This session released on Roulette marks a bridge between Coltrane's Prestige/Blue Note recordings and those on Atlantic. The quartet sounds fresh, relaxed and spontaneous, the session has an effervescent spirituality and transcendence that is more subtle and less weighty than some of his later "religious" recordings, e.g. A Love Supreme. McCoy Tyner sounds light and joyous, and on these four cuts, Coltrane seems to have found whatever he was searching for all those years.

After listening to this album for over 25 years, it's haunting beauty continues to grow on me. It has always between my favourite Coltrane recording and possibly my favourite jazz album of all time. Do not overlook this recording!

Passion, Grace and Fire front

Al Di Meola, Paco de Lucia, John McLaughlin - Passion, Grace & Fire (1983)
Flac (seperate files) - 159 MB | Booklet & Covers (300 dpi) - 15.2 MB included
Genre: Jazz Fusion

Never has an album been so justly deserving of its title. In 1983, the guitar super trio of John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola and Paco De Lucia followed up their phenomenal live acoustic album Friday Night in San Francisco with this masterpiece of a studio recording. The prevailing opinion at the time was that the raw excitement of the original live recording could never be matched in the recording studio. Delightfully, the Trio answered all those who had questioned its potential with Passion Grace and Fire. Its greater dependence upon melodies may even make PG&F the superior release.

Each guitarist contributed two compositions, and all pieces feature the Trio playing written out parts and improvising over a theme. No player dominates, as the format does not provide for contests or duels. And best of all, the acoustic guitars are recorded flawlessly.

"David" is an enchanting John McLaughlin composition where he delivers a haunting and seemingly time-defying lead performance. McLaughlin is the very rare (or perhaps unique) musician who quite literally is able to bend or suspend time in his playing. It is really quite unexplainable.

De Lucia's brilliance is clearly heard in his piece "Chiquito", in which he expands the language of Flamenco into all sorts of open spaces. Di Meola's strongest moments occur during his composition honored as the title piece. Timed in at just a little over 30 brief minutes, Passion Grace and Fire could have included a few more tunes, but it's still a masterpiece.

In the final analysis, the end result is a stand-off, as all three guitarists showcase ferocious, lightning quick riffs and passionate rhythm playing in support of each other. The acoustic guitar summit is a great companion CD to their first recording -- with fiery playing alternating with moments of grace and beauty.

The live tour in support of this album featured a giddy Steve Morse as the opening act. You could sense his joy as he joined his heroes for the encores. ~ Review compiled from All About Jazz & Guitar Nine Records

"''To the immense credit of Chandos, this is the second volume of solo works it has issued, judiciously compiled and lovingly annotated by Bryce Morrison, a further poignant reminder of the tragic waste of talent, nowhere more so than in the life-affirming exuberance of the opening Scarlatti Sonata. I would buy the disc for that and the Haydn C minor Sonata alone.''
BBC Music Magazine

''This is a striing recital in generally good sound (though levels vary) from an artist who ended his life at 22. There are few of a similar age today who offer his potential.''

Genre: classical , Romantic, Historical Recordings

Georges (originally György) Cziffra (November 5, 1921-January 17, 1994) was a Hungarian virtuoso pianist. A son of Hungarian Romas (his father, György Cziffra Sr., was a cimbalom player and played in cabaret halls and restaurants in Paris in the 1910s), born in Budapest, Cziffra became noted at the age of five, improvising on popular tunes in bars and circuses. His teachers at the Franz Liszt Academy included Erno Dohnányi.

Cziffra is most known for his dazzling recordings of Franz Liszt's virtuoso works. He also recorded many of Frédéric Chopin's compositions and those of Robert Schumann (his account of Carnaval de Vienne admired by Alfred Cortot) Cziffra also made a famous transcription of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee, written in interlocking octaves.

Count Basie & The Mills Brothers - The Board Of Directors

Genre: Jazz

This rare version of CD is a High Quality (20bit - K2 Super Coding), Japanese audiophile edition of the Count Basie and Mills Brothers LP, "The Board Of Directors", released back in 1967 on the Dot label (DLP 25838). I thought it was worth it to post it here. Some of you will enjoy it.

Track Listing:

1. Up A Lazy River
2. I May Be Wrong But I Think You' Re Wonderful

6. The Whiffenpoof Song
7. I Dig Rock And Roll Music
8. Tiny Bubbles
9. December
10. Let Me Dream
11. April In Paris

Review by William Ruhlmann

It sounds just like you'd expect it to: the Mills Brothers' smooth vocals punctuated by the Basie band's punchy playing, in arrangements by Dick Hyman.
Most effective are the older songs, familiar to both groups of artists, such as "(Up A) Lazy River" and "April in Paris." Less impressive are some contemporary tunes such as "Release Me" and "I Dig Rock and Roll Music" (!). But the Mills Brothers mesh so well with Basie that it makes you wonder why it took them so long to get together for a recording.

Dmitri Shostakovich
Title: Dmitri Shostakovich
Symphony No.7 In C Major "Leningrad" OP. 60
Artist: Dallas Symphony Orchestra
Genre: Orchestral
Period: 20th Century

Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 7 ("Leningrad") both capitalized on and contributed to the Leningrad myth. Created in 1941 in the immediate aftermath of the brutal Nazi onslaught on the eerie northern metropolis in which the composer spent his youth and formative years, this sprawling, impassioned tribute to its bravery became a rallying cry for the Soviet population. The Seventh Symphony's international impact was no less impressive. Few works of twentieth century music, in fact, have achieved wider recognition or greater emotional significance than this 78 minute monument to a city that had already played such an influential role in modern political history. - Harlow Robinson

Tangerine Dream - Thief OST
1981 | Genre : Electronic OST | FLAC - Lossless | 234 Mb | RS | Covers & Label incl

"Tangerine Dream scored director Michael Mann's film debut, Thief (released as "Violent Streets" outside of the U.S. market), adding their patented pulses, blips and whooshes to the film's highly stylized visual scenes. While TD's electronic music is a natural fit for soundtracks, it doesn't bring out the best in the band; for the most part, this soundtrack contains swatches of a larger canvas, building up a small head of steam in the span of four or five minutes but not raising the musical discussion above the level of mere mechanical chitchat. Most of the songs follow a set pattern, with Chris Franke slurring his sequencers under a thin fog of synthesizers, topped by a piercing and pithy melody. An engaging melody on "Beach Theme" makes it one of the album's better tracks, while "Trap Feeling" has a delicacy that compares favorably to Brian Eno's Music for Films. Fans of Force Majeure will find the second part of "Thru Metamorphic Rocks" reprised on "Igneous," while American audiences were treated to an actual rock song of guitars, bass and drums from the band on "Confrontation," written by Craig Safan (who would go on to score The Last Starfighter). Outside of the U.S., the track was replaced by "Beach Scene," which was issued as a promotional single in the U.K. and can be found on the Dream Sequence compilation. Despite charting well (number 43 in the U.K.), Thief is little more than a perfunctory exercise in electronic music -- a pastiche of leftovers and formulaic compositions that fail to fully engage the listener on their own. Of interest, Tangerine Dream also provided the soundtrack to Mann's next film, The Keep (available only as a
bootleg to date), which in the context of that film was an unqualified success.

Biograph by Ken Dryden

Eddie Costa emerged from an unlikely background into a heralded -- if too brief -- career in jazz. Born in a rural coal mining town, Costa studied piano with his brother Bill and developed a taste for the swing greats; later, exposure to Bud Powell turned him to bop. Self-taught on vibes, Costa became known as an excellent sight reader, which produced a lot of studio work. On piano, his trademark sound was the emphasis of the middle and lower registers while nearly ignoring the top two octaves. In addition to recording as a sideman with Tal Farlow, Woody Herman, Johnny Smith, the Bob Brookmeyer-Clark Terry Quintet, and Bill Evans, Costa led his own trio and quintet dates. Sadly, most of Costa's recorded output remains unavailable on CD, with the notable exception of the VSOP reissue of his Quintet LP. Costa died when his car careened off of a busy New York parkway in 1962.
