After multimillionaire Rod McCain (Kevin Kline) buys a London zoo, the staff is pressured to make higher profits or face closure. McCain assigns the lovely Willa Weston (Jamie Lee Curtis) to supervise the zoo, particularly its misguided director, Rollo Lee (John Cleese). In an effort to increase attendance, Lee decides that only aggressive animals should be displayed, horrifying insect specialist Adrian "Bugsy" Malone (Michael Palin). Amid the caged wildlife, romance and even murder ensue.

Barbara Bonney's recital of the Schumanns' songs is prefaced, in the booklet-note, with a little feminist homily from the singer defending the reputation of Clara as woman and artist. Clara hardly needs that kind of defence nowadays, witness recent CDs by Skovhus and Stutzmann, plus several others not reviewed in these pages; her songs are far from patronized, let alone neglected. Yet, for all the advocacy of these singers, her inspiration remains for me intermittent, though thoroughly conventional songs are occasionally leavened by notably individual ones, such as, here, her very last and unpublished song, Loreley, which vividly conjures up that dangerous creature, particu lady in the hectic piano part, evocatively played by Ashkenazy. Indeed it seems that Heine most inspired her, as "Sic liebten sich beide" from her Op. 13 provoked a setting of economically intense meaning, to which Bonney finely responds.

Genre: Jazz

Beyond category or idiom, audacious in its very idea, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter perform a little over an hour of spontaneous improvised duets for grand piano and soprano sax. That's all no synthesizers, no rhythm sections, just wistful, introspective, elevated musings between two erudite old friends that must have made the accountants at PolyGram reach for their Mylanta. Hancock's piano is long on complex harmonies of the most cerebral sort, occasionally breaking out into a few agitated passages of dissonance. His technique in great shape, Shorter responds with long-limbed melodies, darting responses to Hancock's lashings, and occasional painful outcries of emotion.

So just exactly what are 'The Rockfield Mixes'? In essence they are the second and most dynamic of The Ian Gillan Band albums, namely 'Clear Air Turbulence'. The mixes on this CD were done at Rockfield Studios in Wales but Ian Gillan was unhappy with the results and the album underwent a major remix before it was finally released on 15 April 1977. The Ian Gillan Band's music was a fusion of many styles from Rock to Jazz Funk. The Rockfield Mixes is a unique opportunity to hear classy (and some say superior) performances, from a great 70's Rock super group, in their original form.

Philippe Herreweghe directs these Schumann concertos with severity and urgency, with an impact that’s particularly strong in the opening movement of the A minor piano concerto. The soloist is Andreas Staier, who plays a mid-19th century J.B. Streicher instrument. But it’s not just the use of period instruments (this is certainly the kind of piano Schumann would have known) that proves so fascinating here; rather, it’s the minutely detailed way in which soloist and conductor interact during this performance. Note, for instance, how astutely Herreweghe’s wind players articulate the sorrowful first subject group after the soloist’s opening salvo, a passage that sets the tone for all that follows.

Put on your dancing shoes and jive the night away. Standards like In the Mood and When the Saints Come Marching In will put a new lift in your step. Instrumentation includes saxophones, trumpets, trombones, French horn, piano, guitar, bass & drums. When I was a kid, back in the '60's, my dad listened to a group of records called "The Swing Era"… I believe from Time-Life. I grew up loving the swing rhythms and stylings of "Little Brown Jug", "Take The 'A' Train, and "Chattanooga Choo-Choo" as they popped and hissed out of our giant console stereo. I've tried digitally remastered versions of the originals, like "Glenn Miller-A Memorial", but have always been disappointed by, well, the pops and hiss, and the generally low fidelity that these great old songs were recorded with… not their fault! But "In The Big Band Mood" faithfully recaptures the music in new recordings by Michael Maxwell and his orchestra, and their rendition of what I consider to be one of the most perfect pieces of music of all time - "In The Mood" - is excellent. I highly recommend this album!
