This album brings together a superb team to pay eloquent tribute to a man who made more contributions to the Great American Songbook than any other composer - Harold Arlen. The twelve classic songs on this album are beautifully interpreted by Greetje Kauffeld, who receives excellent support from a quintet led by Paul Kuhn. Says Paul: "Greetje is a wonderful singer who belongs to the elite of the jazz vocalists. He singing is very soulful and her warm voice is perfectly suited to Harold Arlen's ballads."

Jazz Vocals | MP3 320 kbps | 47:31 | ~111 Mb
Label: NKR Records | Tracks: 11 | 2016

2016 release. Love and the Lack Thereof is a beautifully crafted and passionate example of some of the best vocal jazz available today. The album features Kat Gang's romantic, sly, and swinging take on lesser-known gems from the American Songbook, from the Lerner and Lane classic "My Shining Hour" to the bittersweet "Nobody's Heart (Belongs To Me)" by Rodgers and Hart. The musicianship here is outstanding, with Mike Renzi leading the way as pianist/ arranger alongside Jay Leonhart on bass and Buddy Williams on drums. Guest appearances by Harry Allen on saxophone and Warren Vache on flugelhorn add spirit and depth. The album was one of the last recordings ever made at the historic Nola Recording Studios, with the great Jim Czak as engineer.

After a long period off of records (at least as a leader), pianist Kenny Drew emerged in 1973 for a duo session with bassist Niels Pederson. For their rematch in 1974, Drew and Pederson performed one original apiece, five standards (including "A Child Is Born" and "My Shining Hour") and jazz interpretations of a couple of Scandinavian folk songs. The pianist's style was largely unchanged from the 1950s except that he had grown a bit as a player and was open to some more modern chord voicings. The music on this encounter with the virtuosic bassist Niels Pederson should easily appeal to Kenny Drew's fans. Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

The 25th Hour is Vision Divine’s third concept album in a row and it is here where their slow but steady climb in the Power Metal ranks has been halted. While never uttered in the same breath as other Italian metal greats such as Labyrinth or Secret Sphere, Vision Divine have managed to release two quality albums upon the arrival of Michele Luppi behind the mic. Stream Of Conciousness has some of the band’s best individual songs such as Colours Of My World, La Vitta Fugge, and Versions Of The Same….

Originally included as part of the exhaustive Unearthed box set of Johnny Cash's American Records recordings, My Mother's Hymn Book is exactly what it claims to be – songs directly out of Cash's mother's old hymnal. Featuring Cash alone playing an acoustic guitar, this is a stark, beautiful, and simple album. In the liner notes, Cash calls this his favorite record he's ever made and it's clear that learning these songs as a child is what inspired his love of music. In that sense, despite no original material, these are some of the most personal songs Cash ever recorded; he even includes song-by-song commentaries that help illuminate what each track meant to him. For Merle Travis' "I Am a Pilgrim" Cash writes, "It's one of those old country gospel classics that my mother sang, that I knew I would record it someday." Of course, Cash recorded gospel songs before this album, as in 1959 with Hymns by Johnny Cash and again in 1962 with Hymns From the Heart and he usually included one gospel track per album.

Now Katia Labèque has released an album of solo performances and duets – the latter with three jazz piano giants in Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Gonzalo Rubalcaba, as well as two tracks for Sting on vocals, plus Dimension X producer/guitarist David Chalmin. The conversations with the three pianists all represent eloquent balances of Labeque's fragile precision against freewheeling improvisational energy. My Funny Valentine (with Hancock) shifts from wistful beginnings to a driving boogie; We Will Meet Again (with Corea) is a fitting tribute to composer Bill Evans's delicate clarity; and Besame Mucho (with Rubalcaba) grows turbulent in its middle section. Sting is a little theatrical, and Chalmin's Purple Diamond has a faintly David Brent-like fervency, but Erik Satie's Gnossienne No 3 is as exquisite as always. –John Fordham

Quiet intensity personified…if that is the way you like your jazz, specifically your organ combos, then Rhyne is your B-3 main man and this is his shining hour in a tribute to his now legendary bandmate, the late guitarist Wes Montgomery. Everything on this CD is ultimately appealing – its sound, immaculate vision, unabashed groove, scholarly repertoire, controlled urgency, faithfulness to Wes, and the staunch individualism of Rhyne, guitarist Royce Campbell and drummer Killer Ray Appleton, all at their very best.

Childish Gambino is (and isn't) Donald Glover, a recording artist, writer, actor, director, producer and comic who was gifted his alias by an online Wu Tang-Clan name-generator. Originally hailing from Stone Mountain, Georgia - his Mum was a daycare provider and his Dad a postal worker, where TV was banned in the house - Glover first entered the spotlight as a member of sketch-troupe Derrick Comedy, via a stint working on The Daily Show and the invitation to join the '30 Rock' writing staff by Tina Fey before he'd even graduated from NYU.
