Colossus Projects is the new project designed by Colossus, the Finnish Progressive Music Association. But this time, there's only one band involved: the band members are keyboards player Alfio Costa (Prowlers & Tilion), bass player Roberto "Bobo" Aiolfi (Prowlers & Tilion), drummer Giovanni Giana Vezzoli (Prowlers) and singer Hamadi Trabelsi. With a big help from some Italian friends and with some international special guests, the musicians wrote their first album "The Empire And The Rebellion" (2008). As you may guess, this work is inspired by "Episode IV" in the original "Star Wars" saga…

Number three in a string of projects produced by the French label Musea and the Finnish magazine Colossus, The Colossus of Rhodes is The Spaghetti Epic's twin. Both albums were started at the same time, both are two-CD sets consisting of six epics, both are based on movies by Sergio Leone. But this time around, the Colossus team opted for a rather obscure Leone work, a peplum movie that predates his spaghetti Western years…

Initially conceived as a moral and artistic response to human suffering, violinist Edna Michell's Compassion also became a touching tribute to her mentor and source of inspiration, Yehudi Menuhin, on his death in 1999. The 15 compositions commissioned by Michell for the project revolve around the themes of suffering and charity in fairly abstract or suggestive ways, with few programmatic, religious, or political points made beyond the allusive titles. As a practical matter for curious listeners, this CD is a comprehensive sampler of contemporary musical trends, and the leading lights of two generations of composers are generously represented in the CD's 80 minutes. Established figures such as Karel Husa, Lukas Foss, György Kurtág, Hans Werner Henze, Wolfgang Rihm, Philip Glass, John Tavener, Steve Reich, and Iannis Xenakis share the program with rising composers Shulamit Ran, Chen Yi, Yinam Leef, Betty Olivero, Poul Ruders, and Somei Satoh.

Stylistically, reggae incorporates some of the musical elements of rhythm and blues, jazz, mento a celebratory, rural folk form that served its largely rural audience as dance music and an alternative to the hymns and adapted chanteys of local church singing, calypso, African music, as well as other genres. One of the most easily recognizable elements is offbeat rhythms; staccato chords played by a guitar or piano on the offbeats of the measure. The tempo of reggae is usually slower than ska but faster than rocksteady.The concept of "call and response" can be found throughout reggae music.

It's a tribute album with a twist, though, as all of the songs have been meticulously translated into English, many for the first time. The sheer variety of the contributors here should give some indication of the universal influence the man still holds. From Jarvis Cocker to Marianne Faithfull, Michael Stipe to Marc Almond, Franz Ferdinand to Cat Power – the lineup is nearly as diverse as the man's career was and, duly, the material covered here comes from nearly every corner of Gainsbourg's catalog. Unlike many collections of his work, Revisited doesn't dwell on his infamously racy selections…
