Having grown up listening to blues legends such as Sonny Boy Williamson and Slim Harpo in his hometown a dozen miles west of Birmingham, Alabama, Sam Frazier Jr.'s musical output has always been eclectic, but it does maintain a firm connection to the guitar and harmonica melodies of the deep south. While his soul music period was relatively short-lived, occurring before he went on to make a career for himself as a blues and country man, the recordings presented here—made between 1969 and 1971—capture Frazier's power as a Southern soul vocalist.

Trouble Hunting is a Polish-Danish quintet started in October 2010 in Odense. The band performs music of Tomasz Licak. Compositions are inspired by the wide-ranging contemporary music, from jazz to classical. An important role in the work of Trouble Hunting is improvisation - not only performed by soloists but also "compositional" and collective. This gives the band's music original sound and special, unique stylistic consistency. Music of Trouble Hunting is full of contrasts, both minimalistic and rich, narrative, and running away into abstraction.

This project – a tribute to an obscure Glaswegian indie band by an equally obscure Edinburgh jazz musician – is an oddly satisfying exercise in wilful Caledonian obscurity. The Pearlfishers, led by David Scott of the BMX Bandits, have been recording dreamy, elegant, adult-oriented pop since the early 90s, pitched somewhere between Brian Wilson, Steely Dan and Prefab Sprout. Colin Steele, the self-taught trumpeter behind his own Scottish-accented modern jazz quintet and jazz-folk outfit Stramash, here dismantles 10 of Scott’s cleverly written songs and reassembles them as glistening modern jazz, his Harmon-muted trumpet turning the melodies into a pleasantly chromatic blur. It would be fascinating to hear Steele apply this approach to the music of other indie bands, Scottish or otherwise.

Tasteful, subtle and inscrutable, Belgium's Melanie De Biasio and the band have made one of the few modern vocal jazz records. The singer, who also plays flute on the album, which she studied at the Conservatoire Royal De Bruxelles – was born in Charleroi, Belgium, to an Italian family originally from Venice and grew up listening to Maria Callas, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Jeff Buckley and Rage Against The Machine. But you wouldn't necessarily infer such diverse influences from No Deal. It's a record that she produced herself and is steeped in the language of blues and jazz. "No Deal" is a dark, transcendent songs that seem to suspend time.

Gustav Mahler's masterpiece Das Lied von der Erde (Song of the Earth) has always been subtitled as a Symphony for Tenor and Alto (or Baritone) and traditionally two voices have sung the six movements of the work. However Jonas Kaufmann felt differently about this and decided to sing both parts himself. This is the first time that one voice has sung both parts for a recording of this piece.
