This seeks to be a good-time record while maintaining the musical intelligence that listeners should expect from Anderson. "Putting the cookies on a lower shelf" can be dangerous if the artists are too busy worrying about public taste to do any real cooking, but it's obvious from the start that the players (Amina Claudine Myers, organ, piano; Jerome Harris, guitar; Lonnie Plaxico, bass; Tommy Campbell, drums) are having a blast themselves. I can't imagine any complaints about anyone's contributions instrumentally. The rhythm team swings, Anderson sounds just great, Myers and Harris shine throughout, and the trombone-organ-guitar ensembles are downright dangerous. The four vocal tracks feature Myers and Anderson solo and in tandem: gutsy, extroverted performances of intelligent lyrics by Jackie Raven. This music is hard to describe but it's natural and infectious, somewhat comparable to Mose Allison, but hotter.

Lapis Lazuli have recently been touring their latest project ‘Alien/Abra Cadaver’ - a holographic forty-minute sci-fi epic that has been a year in the making. With influences ranging from Progressive Rock, Math Rock, Funk, Jazz, Balkan, Psychedelia and Alien Visitation the latest piece is a tour-de force of the band’s past and future musical paradigms crystallized into orchestral proportions that takes them a step forward into new unchartered lands. The six-piece don’t write songs, their compositions are more expansive and eclectic instrumental pieces of music combining diverse influences delivered with the aesthetic of a rock orchestra. It’s a huge sound…

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. An overlooked gem from reedman Sam Rivers – and a set that's surprisingly soulful, given that most of his other work from this stretch is much more outside! The album's got a laidback groove on most numbers – with rhythm from Daryll Thompson on guitar, Rael Wesley Grant on bass, and Steve McCraven on drums – often in this midtempo mode that has the electric currents providing a subtle bounce, which opens up as Rivers solos on tenor, soprano sax, and flute! The style's a few steps down from funky fusion, but not that far away, either – and Sam proves to be an expressive soloist in the setting, in ways we really wouldn't have expected. Titles include "Swirl", "Chant", "Coral", "Lazuli", "Ripples", "Dandelions", "Devotion", "Beatrice", and "Sprung".

The original Chico Hamilton Quintet was one of the last significant West Coast jazz bands of the cool era. Consisting of Buddy Collette on reeds (flute, clarinet, alto, and tenor), guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Carson Smith, and the drummer/leader, the most distinctive element in the group's identity was cellist Fred Katz. The band could play quite softly, blending together elements of bop and classical music into their popular sound and occupying their own niche. This six-CD, limited-edition box set from 1997 starts off with a Hamilton drum solo from a 1954 performance with the Gerry Mulligan Quartet; it contains three full albums and many previously unreleased numbers) by the original Chico Hamilton band and also has quite a few titles from the second Hamilton group (which has Paul Horn and John Pisano in the places of Collette and Hall).

Style: New Age, Ambient | Label: New World Music

The pure harmonic sounds created when Crystal Bowls are struck or rubbed with a beater are unique. On this CD they have been carefully recorded to create a musical journey which takes its inspiration from the properties of various Gem Stones associated with the 7 Chakras. (The word chakra is Sanskrit for “wheel” or “disc.”) Each track represents one of the Chakras, with its own distinct character, frequency and colour which relates to a unique aspect of our being.

Voici l'histoire d'un amour impossible dans un océan de haine, l'histoire de l'innocence manipulée par la ruse, l'histoire de la barbarie humaine, de la guerre, de la vengeance : une histoire si belle et terrible à la fois, une histoire de trahisons. C'est aussi une ode épique, pleine de lumières et de ténèbres, de joies et de souffrances, de richesses et de misères où luisent les diamants, les lapis-lazuli, l'or et le marbre. …
