Cecilia Bartoli - Live in Italy

Cecilia Bartoli - Live in Italy / Jean-Yves Thibaudet
Decca | October 20, 1998 | Classical | APE+CUE | 3% Recovery | 306 MB | Covers+Booklet | 76'47"

In the beginning, Cecilia Bartoli seemed to do one thing better than anybody, i.e., Rossini arias, which would not guarantee a long career even for a singer of her ebullience. This live performance from the Teatro Olympico in Vincenza, Italy, shows how much she's expanded, both linguistically and musically. The first five selections reflect her newfound specialty, early opera. The three Caccini selections from the 17th century--accompanied by small string ensemble--are deeply felt and stylistically convincing enough to make one eager for future forays. She's guilty of spinning out Handel's "Lascia la spina" excessively but hits new heights of virtuosity in Vivaldi's "Agitata da due venti." The rest of the disc is for voice and piano, in a program including both some genuine discoveries by French composer Pauline Viardot-Garcia that reveal the singer's increasing emotional depths and less consequential ones by Donizetti and Rossini. Bartoli also sings Spanish songs, most notably Montsalvatge's "Canto negro," proving that the singer doesn't venture into a new language until she can truly feel in it. Remarkably, her voice maintains its strength and body in the deeper, mezzo-ish regions as well as in the high, soprano-range areas. Might she have two voices?

Beirut - Elephant Gun EP (2007)
Alternate Rock | MP3 192 Kbps | 19 MB RS

"If I was young, I'd flee this town
I'd bury my dreams under the ground.
As did I. We drink to die,
we drink tonight

Having released the internationally celebrated Gulag Orkestar in May of 2006, Zach Condon and cohorts came back with this taster, thematically and stylistically, for their second long player The Flying Club Cup. As impressive as the preceding LP, the song Elephant Gun is a classic in itself. We are not worthy.

1. Elephant Gun
2. Transatlantique
3. Le Moribond - My Family's Role In The World Revolution

""Elephant Gun" is totally terrific, and at a time where Beirut hype is already cliche, when backlash is heatin' up the manifestos, it's a reminder of just why Zach was exciting us in the first place. This isn't so much gypsy music so much as music to make us sedentary indie rock kids feel like tumbleweeds; to make us feel like we're shaking dust off our jackets, and into our shoes; to make us feel like yeah we're on our way somewhere, you and i; just take my hand.

The song takes the usual form: ukelele and Condon's wobbling, sugar-and-butter voice; then accordion, straight up-and-down; then the smash of a cymbal and thumb of a bass-drum; then the whole lot of them, squeezed into the pen. Horns and violin, and just as we might tire, Condon is singing with himself, slopes on top of slopes, the sunrises folding over each-other like so many watercolours. "Let the seasons begin / take the big gun down!" We hear no gunshots - just the lumber of our big, slow hearts.

Ron Carter and Jim Hall - Telephone (live) (1985)
MP3 | 224Kbps | | 75mb
Genre: Jazz
The intimate interplay found on 1984's Telephone (as in two-way conversation), is nothing short of remarkable. The setup is between two front line instrumentalists who are both rhythmnatists in their own right. Hall is a consummate rhythm guitarist and he gets a chance to display it on tunes such as "Indian Summer," and "Two's Blues." Carter, who is known for his unwavering rhythmic commitment, is deft as a lead man in such an intimate setting. Check out his solo on "Alone Together." Hall, however, is the greatest surprise. Despite the fact that this is, as one would expect, a fairly laid -back date, his intricacy of attack and his lofty, harmonic scalar heights are simply astonishing. In his solo ascent on Carter's "Telephone," he goes inside the rhythm and harmony of the tune and exchanges them interval by interval. These are indispensable guitar and bass duets by two masters of intimate musical discourse.

The third live CD featuring bassist Ron Carter and guitarist Jim Hall in a duo setting is yet another gem. This 1984 concert, taped at the Concord Jazz Festival, kicks off with Carter's lively blues "Telephone," which gives the pair an opportunity to tightrope walk in unison on the song's tricky theme as well as show off their individual chops as soloists. Hall's "Chorale and Dance" is a two- part composition that begins in a very formal, semi-classical vein before segueing into a Latin setting. They tackle the standard "Alone Together" at a faster clip than their first release together, yet maintain its intimacy. Hall's "Two's Blues" is another daredevil performance. In spite of the virtuoso talent of both men, it is incredible how they achieve so much with so little volume; this release is highly recommended, as are their two previous duo recordings. ~ Ken Dryden, All Music Guide

Recorded live at the Concord Pavillion, Concord, California in August 1984. Originally released on Concord Records (CCD-4270).

VA - Vintage Grooves: FUNK Volume 1

VA - Vintage Grooves: FUNK Volume 1 (2007)
MP3 | VBR 200kbps | 02:07:43h | 183 MB
Genre: Funk

It's nice to see the spirit of funk is still alive and well with the lovers of classic dancefloor tracks. Vintage Grooves very much seems to be in the spirit of this similar to the fantastic Mastercuts selections that gripped everyone in the 90's. There are some absolute classic tracks here and what's clear is that 'Funk Volume 1' has certainly captured the ultimate essence of funk music with the bassline attitude that made funk so damn dirty. The album starts off 'The Beginning Of The End' by Funky Nassau an awesome funk track and then into 'Pick Up The Pieces' by The Average White Band that was one of the first funk tracks that attracted me to this style of music. The list of great artists on this collection is first class like Sly & The Family Stone, Bill Withers, The O Jay's, The Fatback Band, Curtis Mayfield, Earth Wind & Fire and The Isley Brothers. We see the Headhunters with 'God Made Me Funky' at there most funkiest and lesser known gems like Raydio 'For Those That Like To Groove' and an awesome Bar Kays track 'Holy Ghost' that slaps you in your face.

The Perfect Element front

Pain of Salvation - The Perfect Element [Part 1] (2000)
EAC Image (FLAC+CUE+LOG) - 501 MB | MP3 @ 320 - 166 MB
Genre: Progressive Metal

After their Entropia debut came the smashing album One Hour By The Concrete Lake which immediately put the band on the prog metal map. Obviously the band knew their follow-up album had to be even better because now the entire international media would be highly interested. After listening to The Perfect Element I'm convinced they will!

Opening track "Used" kicks off in a very heavy way, yet the band knows how to make this unique and interesting from the very start what with including those tiny computer beeps in amongst chaotic mayhem, sudden melodic vocal harmonies, and a splendid, romantic guitar solo. The album, which is based on a concept revolving around the meeting and history of two broken individuals, of course holds many different atmospheres as it has to illustrate different frames of minds. "In The Flesh" starts with the softer side of it all with a repetitive guitar backing nice melodic vocals. But then the rhythm gets fiercer and Daniel's voice starts heading towards vintage Robert Plant. Acoustic guitar melts together with piano to create a blood-curdling end. Next up is "Ashes," a strong song which has Pearl Jam, Faith No More and King's X elements all knitted into one. Certain parts of the song are rather "naked" but in the chorus there's a wall of sound coming down on you so you better beware! A video has been shot for "Ashes," a video that will be available on the limited edition of the album.

To me the first big surprise comes in the form of "Morning On Earth." It's really difficult to explain just why as you really have to hear this track (preferably with headphones) and all the little details which come creeping in. The drums have no snare, there's an almost operatic approach, theatrical in every way introducing jazzy guitar, acoustic guitar and an out of this world string section. This track will surely make your flesh creep! "Idioglossia" is once again "full speed ahead" with chopping guitars and throbbing basslines all the way. What's nice is the texture of Daniel's voice, which adopts itself to the kind of atmosphere the songs evoke. This guy can sing loud and I mean really LOUD but then again he can approach the melody from a fragile angle as well, such as in "Her Voices," where he sometimes gets in the region of R&B nicely blending with piano and reminding us of Faith No More. The song introduces ethnic influences, a hypnotizing rhythm even violin and once again an outstanding performance by drummer Johan Langell. Towards the end more voices get together but I would have loved to hear a huge choir here adding to the bombastic nature of the finale. Acoustic finesse in Extreme vein is the reference for "Dedication." Again it's all systems go for "King Of Loss" which has the guitars as absolute Olympic champions ending together with classical strings in total chaos.

It has to be said that the twelve songs on this disc are kind of grouped into three seperate packages of four songs each so we have come to the latest batch. "Reconciliation" has both guitars complementing each other whilst the vocals follow the piano guideline resulting in a progressive Skunk Anansie. A guitar almost sounding like a clavinet is the main attraction in the intro for "Song For The Innocent" before distortion sets in, introducing the bombastic nature of the Pain of Salvation music. Sadly the grand piano sounds too much in the background. "Falling" is a small showcase for the guitar skills. The album closes with "The Perfect Element," which once again is backed by an orchestral arrangement that forms the backdrop to heavy riffs. Acoustic guitar soon drowns in a sea of strings whilst the song builds and builds, layer upon layer so as to let the heavy guitar riffs into the arena once again. Acoustic guitars introduce violin, female vocals (I would have loved to hear Within Temptation's Sharon den Adel here!) and some inventive little details lead the way for all the various voices to meet in one central point. The song ends with some ace percussion as if it was an outtake from the musical Stomp. Breathtaking!

If you're getting sick of all those would-be Dream Theater clones then get acquainted with what real progressive metal should really be about: Pain of Salvation, without any doubt The Perfect Element! ~ Review by John "Bo Bo" Bollenberg @ Progressive World

LeAnn Rimes - Twisted Angel
MP3 | 192 Kbps | 51mb | Genre: Pop/Rock, Country

TWISTED ANGEL shows just how far the newly adult vocalist has come from her teenage-prodigy beginnings. For one thing, she seems determined to leave her country roots far behind. Though she started down the pop route as early as 1997's YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE, TWISTED ANGEL is completely devoid of any country inflection whatsoever, focusing instead (as have a couple of Rimes's previous efforts, to varying degrees) on modern, often even danceable, pop. Rimes may be closer to Britney Spears than to Kitty Wells these days, but she seems to be expressing more of her inner self. It's surely no coincidence that three of the four songs on which she gets co-writing credit utilize the imagery of the angel with dirty wings, the child star with tears behind the smile. Lyrically, Rimes is clearly exploring the conflicts and contradictions that her childhood fame brought her, which may or may not take her higher up the pop charts, but can only be a positive artistic step for a still-young singer.

Hilario Durand - Habana Nocturna
Latin - Jazz | MP3 CBR 320 Kbps | 100.43 + 57.25 Mb

This CD is a real gem. The great Afro-Cuban pianist Hilario Duran is joined by Jane Bunnett (on flute and soprano), trumpeter Larry Cramer, a string quartet, bassist Roberto Occhipinti, drummer Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez, and Rodolfo Valdes Terry on congs. In addition to the originals, it is particularly intriguing hearing such unlikely material as Billy Strayhorn's "U.M.M.G.," the beautiful "Autumn Nocturne," "Like Someone in Love," and "Harlem Nocturne" turned into stirring Latin music. The solos are consistently exciting and the ensembles are difficult to resist, making this Duran's strongest solo date yet.

Tom Waits & Crystal Gayle - One From the Heart
Soundtrack > Vocal | 1982 | 320kbps | 96mb

Apocalypse Now is widely considered director Francis Ford Coppola's Waterloo, an ambitious personal vision that nearly wrecked his fabled career, health, and sanity. In fact, it was the director's equally Quixotic 1982 Vegas-themed musical One From the Heart that forever cast a pall over his Hollywood future, sounding a death knell for his once-promising American Zoetrope studios in the bargain. Hindsight being 20/20, it's now easy to see Heart's visual conceits as the glorious cinematic antecedent to Moulin Rouge, its smart, lounge-savvy score by musical odd couple Tom Waits and Crystal Gayle easily 15+ years ahead of the retro-hipster revival it preceded--and outclassed at every turn. Now brightened by a sparkling digital remastering, it remains the most accessibly mainstream--and ironically idiosyncratic--music of Waits' storied career. Constructed as a dialog between lovers in a fitful emotional spiral, Waits raspy growl is the perfect counterpoint to Gayle's own gutsy, surprisingly bluesy diva turns. Backed by the spare, deftly lugubrious production of Bones Howe and key contributions by jazz vets Greg Cohen on bass, saxist Teddy Edwards, and the key, mournfully lyrical trumpet of Jack Sheldon, Waits' score has long since taken its rightful place as a modern classic, a perfectly realized romantic daydream that never forgets the wistful, broken hearts stacking up beneath the Vegas neon. This edition features the previously unreleased Waits vocal outtake, "Candy Apple Red" as well as an early, discarded version of the opening montage "Once Upon A Town/Empty Pockets," rejects that only underscore the strength of Waits' musical hand. Enhanced CD also features a newly-edited video montage by Coppola's son, Gian-Carlo.

Rabih Abou-Khalil - Between Dusk & Dawn (1994)
MP3 | 128Kbps | | 70mb | Covers
Genre: Jazz / World Fusion

One of Abou-Khalil's earlier albums, Between Dusk and Dawn features stellar sidemen such as master percussionist Glen Velez and jazz saxophonist Charlie Mariano. In places it exhibits that ecstatic melding of jazz and Arabic music that was later perfected on Blue Camel. But in other places it gives us long patches of noodling and less-then-engaging playfulness.

An example of the former would be the first track, "Dusk." At just over 14 minutes, more than half of this piece is devoted to a shapeless and tiresome prelude for percussion and oud (Arabic lute). An example of the latter is the aptly named "The Thing that Came out of the Swamp," which features everything but the kitchen sink, including Glen Velez's overtone singing, in a fantasy that sounds like Stravinsky crossed with Steve Reich. Yet there are solid, jazzy tracks like "Chess with Mal" which opens with a long but well-formed solo by Charlie Mariano before sax and oud synchronize for one of Abou-Khalil's gloriously rhythmic tunes. Or "Dawn," where Abou-Khalil plays one of his favorite tricks of making it sound as if the melody of the piece grows out of his initial improvisation. Despite the album's lack of overall focus, it does offer a bounty for the ear, especially in the percussion. A disc for fans of one or more of the musicians involved. ~ Kurt Keefner, All Music Guide
