Jazz singer/songwriter Michael Franks is an artist most jazz fans feel strongly about one way or another. His unique, romantic poet-cum-laid-back hipster approach to jazz signing is breezy, light, and languid. It's also uniquely his own, though deeply influenced by Brazilian jazz, bossa, and samba. Time Together, his first recording of new material in five years – and his debut for Shanachie – is unlikely to change anyone's opinion of him, but that doesn't mean this is a rote recording. Time Together is an airy, groove-ridden summer travelog that ranges from St. Tropez and New York to Paris, France, and Egypt; it journeys through the nostalgic past and finds space in the present moment, with cleverly notated, languorous, ironic observations about life. Franks split the production and arranging duties between Charles Blenzig, Gil Goldstein, Chuck Loeb, Scott Petito, and Mark Egan. The rest of the international cast on this polished 11-song set includes old friends and new faces David Spinozza, Mike Mainieri, David Mann, Eric Marienthal, Till Brönner, Alex Spiagin, Jerry Marotta, Billy Kilson, Romero Lubambo, and backing vocalist Veronica Nunn.

A Posteriori is the sixth studio album by German musical project Enigma. In December 2006, the album was nominated in the Best New Age Album category in the 2007 Grammy Awards. Three years after the release of Voyageur, an album that took Enigma in a new direction, Michael Cretu took another step and released A Posteriori. This latin title is often used in philosophy where it describes what is essentially knowledge through experience (e.g. "after the fact"). In style the release shares more with Voyageur than the four first Enigma albums, but it has taken the approach of this new direction even further. The album introduces sort of a hybrid culture that lends itself to many different directions, but still revolves around a common point in a more straight-forward manner than before.
Voyageur is the fifth studio album by the German musical project Enigma and released in 2003. Voyageur was considered to be Enigma's most different album ever created, due to Enigma's drastic changes in sound as compared to the previous four albums. The project's signature shakuhachi flutes, Gregorian chants and tribal chants found on the earlier albums were all but gone on Voyageur.
