Another 'Great' Compilation collectable which is sure to trigger many a memory of those times. A DVD collection with the title of "Das Beste aus dem Musikladen" features 35 + 5 classic music promos across a diverse range of styles.
It may open up with Aaron Neville's 1993 rendition of George Jones' classic "The Grand Tour," but Ace's 2012 compilation Behind Closed Doors: Where Country Meets Soul focuses on the golden age of country soul – the late '60s and early '70s, the age when the borders between these two strands of southern American music became decidedly blurring. And many of the 23 cuts on Behind Closed Doors are firmly within the Southern soul tradition – slow, smoky, gritty, and soulful, anchored by languid stride piano and buttressed by muscular horns.
Good album featuring more soulful and jazz covers of recent pop hits (Gaga – Poker face , Jessie J- Price Tag) jazz standard ‘Footprints’ plus some original material inc the Groove laden ‘Grenade’ and mellow ‘Need You Now’
In the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries many British composers produced superb works for cello and piano, but few of these actually made their way into the general repertoire. Here we have four very different works by four very distinct musical personalities, performed by the cellist Paul Watkins, an exclusive Chandos artist, accompanied by his brother, Huw Watkins.
