Label: Stockfisch Records | Release Year: 2004

As samplers go, this is one of the best. An excellent cross section of artists from the Stockfish catalog. I am especially taken by the cuts from Alan Taylor ("The Beat Hotel" in particualr) and Chris Jones. Sonics are clean, clear and crisp, with an exceptional sense of timbre. I've purchased a few of the CD's of the artists I've heard on this sampler, and I'm here to tell you, they sound great to - though they can't beat these SACD tracks.

Classic Rock | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | 47:30 min | 1.00 GB | Digital booklet
Label: Legacy Recordings | Tracks: 13 | Rls.date: 2016

Originally intended as a more thematic rendering of the characters and themes of The Village Green Preservation Society, Preservation Act 1 fails to realize Ray Davies' ambitious goal of marrying theatrical elements with rock. Cutting down from a double album to a single LP left significant gaps in the structure and story line, with the plot coming across as virtually indecipherable, though the work still manages to capture a good deal of the nostalgic charm and caustic conservatism that marks much of Davies' most notable work.

Glauco Venier - Miniatures: Music For Piano And Percussion (2016) [TR24][OF]

Glauco Venier - Miniatures: Music For Piano And Percussion
Jazz, Classical | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | 54:51 min | 880 MB | Digital booklet
Label: ECM | Tracks: 15 | Rls.date: 2016

The fifteen 'miniatures' of this modestly-titled recording include new music by Italian pianist Glauco Venier as well as adaptations of Gurdjieff, Komitas, Dufay and more. This is Venier's first solo album for ECM, and as with his exemplary work with Norma Winstone on the acclaimed albums Distances, Stories Yet To Tell, and Dance Without Answer, his disciplined pianism always serves the needs of the pieces.

Label: Harmonia Mundi | Release Year: 2003

The title of this exceptional disc, “Night Music”, should not be taken to mean that the performances are in any way dark, mysterious, droopy, sluggish, or otherwise conventionally “nocturnal”. Rather, the term evokes its 18th century musical meaning: a time for fun, relaxation, parties, entertainment both indoors and out, and of course, romance. Indeed, “Romantic” is perhaps the best way to describe these virtuosic, impulsive, and extravagantly expressive performances by the inimitable Andrew Manze and his team of crack “authentic-instrument” players.
