Jordan Lee’s latest collective serve up sumptuous folk fare. Inspired by both life on tour and Lee’s adopted New York home, his band of friends and associates have lovingly pieced together a staggeringly gorgeous and resolutely timeless album. Twinkling into life through the shimmering “Madrugada”, Skip a Sinking Stone assumes a dream-like quality and rarely threatens to disrupt your reverie. “Skipping Stones” uses a swirling orchestra beautifully, while the sultry “Lost Dreamers” asks us (very politely) to “throw away our phones”.

Jethro Tull - "Benefit"  Music

Posted by Alexpal at Dec. 9, 2005
...К 1970 году Jethro Tull зарекомендовали себя в Штатах как одна из лучших концертных групп. Однако при этом они почти позабыли свою родину. Правда, в январе 1970 года в Англии был издан сингл с песнями "Witch's Promise" и "Teacher", первая из которых заняла четвертое место в таблицах популярности. Но их третий альбом под названием "Benefit", выпущенный в апреле, продавался хуже, чем все записанные ранее, хотя достиг в мае третьего места в британских чартах и сразу же стал "золотым" в Америке, оккупировав 11-ю позицию. Несомненно, это очень сильная и зрелая работа группы, на которой музыканты достигли определенной гармонии между тяжелой для восприятия музыкой и не менее сложной поэзией с явным социальным контекстом, особенно в таких песнях, как "For Michael Collins, Jeffrey And Me", "And To Cry You A Song" и "Nothing To Say"...

The concert contained on this CD took place at The Santa Barbara County Bowl in the autumn of 1979, when Bob was touring in support of his militant Survival album. And the resulting film is an epochal record of a Bob Marley performance; one that stands up as being easily an equal of the better known Live at the Rainbow show filmed on the Exodus tour in 1977. For all intents and purposes, the Survival tour had kicked off on September 24 1979, when Bob and the Wailers had played a benefit concert for Rasta children in the National Heroes Arena in Kingston: 1979 was the United Nations’ International Year of the Child. At that ‘Heroes’ Park’ show, Bob introduced the audience to a pair of new songs from the imminent Survival album - “Ambush in the Night,” the story of the assassination attempt on his life by gunmen on December 3 1976, and “Zimbabwe,” in which he expressed his militant support of the freedom movement in the country still known as Rhodesia.

A collection of ambient breakbeat and soundtrack-influenced rock, Offbeat is an appropriately titled left-field venture of the Red Hot + Blue benefit series. Included are tracks from "alternative" acts like Soul Coughing, My Bloody Valentine, Spookey Ruben, Barry Adamson and Laika, plus more dancefloor-oriented producers like Skylab, DJ Krush, Meat Beat Manifesto, Moby, DJ Spooky and others. As can usually be counted on, this edition in the Red Hot series is a must for fans of the music, and an easy recommendation as an important starting point for neophytes.

Barthold Kuijken, Academia Montis Regalis - Vivaldi: Concerti per flauto traversiere (2002)

Barthold Kuijken, Academia Montis Regalis - Vivaldi: Concerti per flauto traversiere (2002)
MP3 (CBR 320 kbps) | 62:19 | 154 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Naïve

This set, like others in Opus 111's Vivaldi Edition, aims to explore many of the composer's unpublished works housed in the National University Library in Turin. Even without the benefit of a PhD in musicology, however, the average consumer with modest expectations will find much to enjoy in this delightfully played collection… Kuijken and the Academia Montis Regalis play these concertos with the customary vigor and crispness we have come to expect of "period-style" Vivaldi recordings, and you even get excellent intonation and nicely balanced sound along with the bargain…

Nat King Cole's album 10th Anniversary proved to be an interesting watershed in his career. First finding fame as a popular jazz pianist leading a trio, Cole gradually added more and more vocals until he had pretty much left jazz behind for a full-time career as a singer. This compilation, issued on LP in 1955, drew from unreleased recordings from both his jazz and easy listening sessions. One can hear Cole's growth as a singer in his jazz tracks, scatting a bit in his "Lulubelle," though it is his impressive piano that dominates another original, "I'm an Errand Boy for Rhythm." "Peaches" is a rather pedestrian affair with the heavy-handed bongos of Jack Costanzo proving to be more of a distraction than a benefit. The easy listening vocals are a mixed bag. "Too Soon" is overwhelmed by Nelson Riddle's strings, though Dave Cavanaugh's campy Western satire "Rough Ridin'" fares better.

This is the second release on ONYX from the amazing Moscow Soloists and their charismatic director, the great Yuri Bashmet. Their first ONYX release was of Chamber Symphonies by Shostakovich, Sviridov and Vainberg (ONYX4007) which gained excellent reviews, including a Grammy 2007 nomination. This disc combines two great Stravinsky works for strings: the marvellous neo-classical ballet Apollon musagète (in the revised 1947 version entitled simply Apollo) and the post-war Concerto in D for strings, with a genuine novelty: in 1962 Rudolf Barshai arranged for his own Moscow Chamber Orchestra 15 of the 20 Visions fugitives that Prokofiev wrote for solo piano between 1915-17. Now Roman Balashov, manager and violist in the Moscow Soloists has completed the set for this world première recording. These are exciting miniatures which truly benefit from the added colours a string orchestra can bring.
