Ferdinando Carulli: Complete Works for Guitar & Fortepiano [BOX SET]
Classical | APE | Covers + Booklet | 8CDs | 261+213+248+241+214+262+203+234MB

Composer: Ferdinando Carulli (1770-1841)
Performer: Leopoldo Saracino (guitar), Massimo Palumbo (fortepiano)
Audio CD (January 24, 2006)
Number of Discs: 8
Format: Box set, Import
Label: Brilliant Classics

On this eight CD boxed set release from Brilliant Classics of the complete works of Carulli for guitar and fortepiano the two soloists have chosen to use authentic instruments, for which the music would have been intended. Furthermore I am thankful to guitarist Leopoldo Saracino and pianist Massimo Palumbo for following period performance practice and recreating that original Carulli sound. But be warned, as it may take some time for the ear to become accustomed to the timbre of the authentic instruments. The sound of the guitar and the fortepiano sometimes overlapped and sounded so similar at times that I could not easily tell which instrument was which. To have used a modern concert-grand piano and a Spanish guitar, their present-day counterparts, would have sounded so very different.

The performances of both Saracino and Palumbo are commendable throughout showing consistent sensitivity and delightfully engaging playing. On CD 1 the Gran Duos op. 70 and op. 86 must surely rank amongst the most difficult and also the most appealing of Carulli's works and the soloists display the requisite blend of virtuosity and imagination. In homage to the composer, Carulli transcribed several works from the operas of Gioacchino Rossini (1792-1868) including the popular Mélange on Rossini's themes op.236 (CD 2), the Deux Duos sur des thèmes de Rossini op.233 (CD 4) and the substantial Choix de douze ouvertures de Rossini, which at around 103 minutes long in total, is divided into two parts, completely filling both CD 5 and CD 6. Transcriptions of large orchestral and operatic works were extremely popular in Carulli's day as they allowed the public to encounter music they wouldn't normally be able to hear. The three Duos of op. 189 (CD 7) were most likely composed for the use of amateur players. These undemanding pieces are most endearing and are delightfully performed by our two soloists. In these Carulli transcriptions Saracino and Palumbo profitably play in keeping with the spirit and letter of Rossini's unhurried, solemn, thoughtful and playful tunes and melodies. I was also impressed with the eminently persuasive and precise playing in the noble and significant four movement Gran Duo op.63 (CD 8).

Nico - Chelsea Girl
Pop | 1967 | MP3 | 192 kbps | 62 mb

In 1966, The Velvet Underground recorded their first studio album, Velvet Underground And Nico. Although most of the tracks on that album featured Lou Reed singing, a few of them featured Nico. When the band enlisted Andy Warhol's management, Nico (who Warhol obviously quite liked) joined the band. However, after releasing the first album in 1967, the band dropped Warhol's management, and along with him Nico left the band. Fortunately, this wasn't going to be the end of Nico's musical career. Following her departure from the Velvets, she recorded her first solo album, Chelsea Girl. It was released in 1967, less than a year after the Velvet Underground album she sang a few tracks on. Read on for my review of Nico's first solo effort.
If you liked the Nico tracks that appeared on the Velvet Underground album, chances are you'll like this album. Her voice can be a little tough to get used to at first, but chances are you'll grow to love it deeply. I should warn you, though - this album, while good, does quite differ from the Velvet Underground album that she sang on. While the Velvets were an artsy rock group that heavily emphasized the typical instruments you'd expect from a pop-rock band (guitars, drums, etc.), this Nico album is a bit more heavy on orchestral arrangements. While this transition can be a little tricky to make, once you make it, you should agree that this is an excellent album. Interestingly, most of the songs on here are NOT Nico originals - they were mostly co-written by other famous rockers of the day (Jackson Brown and Bob Dylan to name a few), and Nico's former Velvet Underground cohorts (including Lou Reed.) On every song on the album, Nico sings excellently. Even though there aren't a whole lot of her originals on here (she only wrote one of the songs, and even then, she only CO-wrote it), you probably won't care.
Sadly, it seems that (as of July 9, 2004) this album is out of print in America, or only available in limited distribution (I had to hunt long and hard to find me a copy.) This means that you're either going to have to hunt long and hard for one yourself, or order one from an internet retailer. It's a shame the album isn't more readily available, because it IS quite good.
In the end, Nico's solo debut is an excellent album. However, like my review title states, this stuff is NOT for everybody. This is ONLY for the open-minded. But if you can get used to Nico's sound, you'll agree that it's an excellent one indeed. It's sad that Nico is so underrated, because very few female musicans have a voice this good. (

The Simpsons - Testify OST 2007
MP3 | 163kbps VBR | 85MB | RS.COM

Los Angeles, CA A soundtrack so highly anticipated that even Homer would get off the couch to celebrate its arrival, THE SIMPSONS: TESTIFY is finally here! Set for release on September 18, 2007 from Shout! Factory, THE SIMPSONS: TESTIFY music CD spotlights material culled from award-winning composer Alf Clausen and features the unmistakable voices of Americas most beloved TV family: Homer (Dan Castellaneta), Marge (Julie Kavner), Bart (Nancy Cartwright), Lisa (Yeardley Smith), and Springfields various townsfolk (Hank Azaria and Harry 7 Shearer). The soundtrack kicks off with Danny Elfman's
unforgettable main title theme, and continues with a collection of the best songs from the last nine seasons of the longest running primetime comedy on TV today. The album arrives just in time to accompany the premiere of Season 19 of THE SIMPSONS on FOX.

Only on THE SIMPSONS: TESTIFY can you find a range of
great talents from Jackson Browne to Weird Al Yankovic,
both willing to engage in self-parody that reflects the
shows uncanny irreverence. And then there is David Byrne,
who while hearing a list of his vast musical
accomplishments, adds with pride And I used to wrestle2
under the name El Diablo! It is Byrne who helps Homer
realize the full odious potential of Everybody Hates Ned
Flanders, even contributing an extended salsa remix, No
Me Gusta Flanders. Were also treated to the lyrical 11
styling of the endearingly homicidal Sideshow Bob (as
voiced by Kelsey Grammar) as he reexamines his
overwhelming loathing of Bart Simpson on The Very Reason
That I Live.

THE SIMPSONS: TESTIFY puts the music front and center, as
the songs featured were mixed specifically for this new
album. For the first time, the brilliant re-imagining of
Broadway hits Evita, My Fair Lady, and The Sound Of Music
can be fully appreciated for all of their satirical
nuance. In My Fair Laddy, Groundskeeper Willie plays
Eliza Doolittle to Lisas Henry Higgins, as Willie learns
both elocution and manners to the refrain of What flows
from the nose, does not go on my clothes. And in Yokel
Chords, Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel and his hillbilly
brood take the place of the von Trapp family, with Lisa
again playing the role of teacher. In this memorable
parody from the most recent season, the Sound Of Music
line I am sixteen going on seventeen becomes I have
eight teeth, going on seven teeth. Of course.

Any SIMPSONS fan will no doubt remember Ricky Gervais
memorable appearance as the Marge-obsessed Charles
Heathbar, who serenades Marge with Lady, which spends ,
more time explaining its lyrics (in song) than actually
saying anything romantic, with the possible exception of
the closing exhortation, dont die.

For those of us with a love of musical theater and the
American popular songs, THE SIMPSONS has certainly carved
out an iconic place in musical history by communicating in
song at the highest level. Never in recent memory has a
television series made such effective use of both songs
and underscore to advance plot points, support the
characters emotions and put a lasting smile on the
viewers face.

Now entering its nineteenth season, THE SIMPSONS, a modern
cult classic created by Matt Groening, remains one of TVs
most popular programs in all demographics. The show
premiered on FOX as a half-hour comedy series January 14,
1990, and received numerous EmmyZ awards for Outstanding
Animated Program. Nearly all of the music for this weekly
animated half-hour series is composed or arranged by
composer Alf Clausen, who has received 2 EmmyZ awards and
20 EmmyZ nominations for his Simpsons music.

THE SIMPSONS is a Gracie Films Production in association
with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt
Groening, and Al Jean are the executive producers. Film
Roman is the animation house.

Genre: New Age | Neoclassical

"On grand piano with deft touches of his keyboard genius, Mars offers a stunning musical portrait evoking whispers of a time when elegance and grace could coax the heart to open with delight. An invitation to a place where Love and Beauty dance the night. Come, take pleasure in an interlude of Sapphire Dreams...
Gentle andethereal throughout, Lasar mixes solo piano with synth - all played by himself. Despite the dreamy theme and feel to most of the album, this is far from a fluff piece. The pieces are beautifully developed and, while very accessible, hold up to many listenings. Classical roots are obvious, but this album is very much in the present, mixing the wonders of the grand piano with the technology of synthesized sounds..;

Bond: Born [Asian Edition]
Label: Decca | Release Date: 2001 | MP3 320 kbps: 113 MB | APE & CUE: 418 MB
Genre: Classical Crossover

Born, the debut album by four conservatory-trained young women, has little to do with classical music. It's a gimmick, fusing a string quartet of frivolous femmes, spicy girls who all want to be "Posh," with dance beats, a big production mixing their violins, viola, and cello with polished electronics. Taking themselves less than seriously--they played the James Bond theme at their Royal Albert Hall debut--pop "Victory" looks assured. This single bounces along with a dash of Rossini's Barber of Seville and a real sense of pop melodrama, in spirit little different from what guitarist John Williams did with his rather less photogenic band Sky in the late 1970s. What may surprise is that tracks such as the frenetic world-dance "Quixote" are penned by the film composer Magnus Fiennes, brother of the more famous Ralph and Joseph. "Winter" adds Jean Michel Jarre-style synth and voice-over to the ghost of Vivaldi and the infectious beat goes on, and on, and on. Sex sells, and Bond's success seems assured. This is a state-of-the-art product, but with a bonus remix of "Victory" by Mike Batt of Wombles fame, just don't expect it to be art.

Rabih Abou-Khalil - Songs For Sad Women (2007)
MP3 | 192Kbps | | 83mb | Covers
Genre: Jazz / World Fusion
After twenty-five years and eighteen albums, it is unlikely that Rabih Abou-Khalil is going to spring any great surprises; long ago he found a distinctive individual style and has stuck to it since - with sufficient variations to keep it fresh and interesting. One need only hear this music for a few seconds to identify its creator. Aficionados will find everything that keeps them coming back for more; the characteristic blend of jazz-inflected Arabic melody with subtle rhythms combines into a hypnotic whole, as ever with Abou-Khalil's fluent oud playing in a central role.

On this album, the variation that stops the music becoming formulaic is the inclusion of guest artist Gevorg Dabaghyan, who plays duduk, a Georgian instrument similar to an oboe. In Dabaghyan's hands, it has a haunting, mournful sound that dominates the album. The opening track, "Mourir Pour Ton Décolleté" is a prolonged showcase for Dabaghyan, and one of the album's highlights.

Newcomers to Abou-Khalil can start here with confidence. Although the instrumentation of oud, serpent, duduk and drums may look exotic, the sound is easy on the ear. The serpent, an ancient blown instrument vaguely like a tuba or euphonium - played here by Michel Godard - largely fulfils the role of bass, but there is a fascinating serpent solo midway through "Para O Teu Bumbum" which reveals the instrument's versatility and hidden depths. For a prime example of the group sound, listen to "Le Train Bleu", with its half-familiar melodic line, the kind you can sing along to on the second listen. It's just one of the wonders of this album...
Abou-Khalil's new album "Songs For Sad Women" radiates with charming, elegiac beauty. Consisting of four players -- on oud (Arab lute), on duduk (Armenian shawm), on serpent (a mysterious brass instrument from the Middle Ages) and drums --, the band's rather singular instrumental mixture makes for an extraordinary sound experience. This is Abou-Khalil's most emotional music to date, heart- gripping, relaxed and haunting. The album's guest star is Gevorg Dabaghyan, one of the most famous players of the duduk, Armenia's traditional oboe and national symbol. Born in 1965 in Yerevan, Dabaghyan graduated from State Conservatory in 1989 and was the first to present Armenian mediaeval spiritual music on the duduk. He became famous for his cross-cultural collaborations with such as Jan Garbarek, Gidon Kremer and Yo-Yo Ma and his Silk Road Project. In Dabaghyan's hand, the duduk becomes an autumn breeze, fresh and bright. Like a rainbow in the sky, like an eternal voice coming from the mountains and rivers of Armenia, the sound of the duduk touches the listener's heart and soul.

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.

One Toke Over the Line

Brewer & Shipley were a folk rock duo of the 1970s, comprised of singer-songwriters Mike Brewer and Tom Shipley. They were known for their intricate guitar work, stunning harmonies, and socially-conscious lyrics which reflected the concerns of their generation -- especially the Vietnam War, and the struggles for personal and political freedom. Their biggest hit was the song "One Toke Over the Line," from the album, Tarkio (1970). They also had two other singles which made the Billboard charts: "Tarkio Road" (1970) and "Shake Off the Demon"

The City of Angels

The two Midwestern natives crossed paths numerous times at various coffeehouse gigs before settling in Los Angeles to write music together, producing their first two albums Down in L.A. and Weeds. Even though mutual friends in bands such as The Association and Buffalo Springfield also lived in Los Angeles, Michael Brewer and Tom Shipley decided to return to their home, the Midwest.

Home sweet home

They left California in 1969, returning to the Midwest, this time to Kansas City, where they would make a meager living through playing in nearby college towns for crowds of small to moderate size. They derived the name of their next album, Tarkio, from a regular gig they played in Tarkio, Missouri. This was their most commercially successful work, featuring their most major hit "One Toke Over the Line" (though many more avid fans would argue that it was by no means their best song), which they wrote as a joke while preparing backstage for a performance. They would go on to play the song at the end of the show and receive a standing ovation from the audience.

Following airplay of the single, President Richard Nixon labeled Brewer & Shipley public miscreants. In retaliation, they referred to Nixon by name in their song, "Oh Mommy," (from Tarkio) in words more or less telling him off and commanding him to let them do what they wanted.

Brewer & Shipley have performed onstage with many other notable acts, including Stephen Stills (of Crosby, Stills & Nash), Bruce Springsteen, Black Sabbath, and Jerry Garcia (of Grateful Dead fame, and who played steel guitar for various tracks on Tarkio).

Regrouping, touring, and present-day status

In 1989 they performed a one-off gig and a short time later began writing together again, producing two albums in the 1990s, SHANGHAI (1993) and Heartland (1997). They have continued to tour together, part time, since the '90s. At present, Michael Brewer lives outside of Branson, Missouri. Tom Shipley makes his home in Rolla, Missouri, where he is on the staff of the University of Missouri - Rolla campus (a/k/a Missouri University of Science & Technolgy as of 1/1/08). He is manager of their distance learning, video, audio, and other special video productions for the university.
