Vincent Herring is complemented by rising young trumpeter Jeremy Pelt on this enjoyable studio date. "All God's Chillun Got Rhythm" is a standard from the swing era, though the quintet translates it into a hard bop vehicle very well, with the leader throwing in a quick reference to another song ("Kerry Dance") from long ago. Herring is a bit playful in his treatment of the ballad "You Leave Me Breathless," while he handles McCoy Tyner's explosive "Four by Five" with finesse. But most of the session is devoted to originals by the band. Bassist Richie Goods contributed the funky, infectious "Citizen of Zamunda," which showcases the leader on his dancing soprano sax. Pianist Danny Grissert, who evidently made his recording debut with this CD, not only proves himself as a capable soloist, but also penned the exciting "Hopscotch" (marked by its use of stop time) and the tense "Encounters."
Ha ragione Ligabue a definire Loredana Berté "la più punk tra le cantanti italiane": punk non riferito a un genere musicale, ma alla sua natura. Una carriera, la sua, fatta di grandi successi e grandi cadute: sempre sull'orlo, in bilico tra il trionfo e la tragedia.
Out on September 23, for the first time ever on CD, the Bertè's album originally released in 1983 on CGD label. Completely remasterd and with original artworks.
British guitar legend Bert Jansch has done far more constructive work (and certainly less damage) regarding authentic roots music than his fellow countryman Eric Clapton has, but tragically Jansch's works go relatively unnoticed, except for a fraction of the guitar-appreciating populace. Hopefully, Castle Music's anthology Dazzling Stranger can help to change that fact. Forty-two songs spread over two CDs tell the folk guitarist's story in chronological order from his Transatlantic recordings in 1964 through his home recordings in 2000, with an emphasis on his late-'60s and early-'70s works.
Bring a science-fiction scene inspired by Star Wars to life with a few simple images and the tools in Photoshop. Join Bert Monroy as he creates this extraordinary dreamscape with some retouching, texturing, and lighting techniques and a special application of Photoshop's Tree script pattern fill. The images in this course come from Bert's travels (from the high-rises of Peru to the rooftops of Orlando hotels!) but you can create the same effects with your own source material.
