Vince Clarke can claim involvement in two stunning debuts in only two years: Depeche Mode's Speak and Spell and Yaz's Upstairs at Eric's. While Speak and Spell is, by far, the more consistent record, Upstairs at Eric's is wholly more satisfying, beating the Depeche record on substance and ambition, and is light years ahead in emotion...

With all the projects Peter Brötzmann is currently working on, Full Blast – with the precise and dynamic Swiss rhythm section of Marino Pliakas and Michael Wertmüller – is the most consistent and the longest-running. Their fifth album finds the band in a studio again, with time and the desire to try something new. Seven compositions in the distinctive, strong Full Blast nature get an exciting electronic treatment by Michael Wertmüller (with electronics by Gerd Rische, recorded months before his death in October 2015) during and after the recording. For mixing the band decided to work with Gareth Jones (well-known for his work with Einstürzende Neubauten and Depeche Mode), whom they have used with Pliakas's band Steamboat Switzerland before. Full Blast have created an album that in its nonconformity and richness in variety stands on his own in contemporary jazz.

Mode For Joe is the influential saxophonist’s 1966 gem. It was his final Blue Note studio recording as a bandleader. Henderson is joined by trumpeter Lee Morgan, trombonist Curtis Fuller, vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, pianist Cedar Walton, double bassist Ron Carter and drummer Joe Chambers. The challenging repertoire showcases the unmatched talents of the ensemble. It features the standouts “Mode For Joe” and “Caribbean Fire Dance”.
Seals & Crofts ‎- Summer Breeze (1972) BS 2629 - US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Seals & Crofts ‎- Summer Breeze
Label: Warner Bros. Records/BS 2629 | Release: 1976 | Genre: Country-Folk
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz

Featuring "Hummingbird" and "Summer Breeze"
Summer Breeze offered an unusually ambitious array of music within a soft rock context – most artists tried to avoid weighty subjects in such surroundings (except, of course, CSN or Simon & Garfunkel, who could pretty much get away with anything). The title track is one of those relentlessly appealing 1970s harmony-rock anthems, in the same mode as the Doobie Brothers' "Listen to the Music" and appropriately ubiquitous on the radio and in the memory; the guitar (electric and acoustic) and vocal hooks are all well-nigh irresistible. The rest varies in sound and focus.

A portrait of the artist as a young man, The Nightfly is a wonderfully evocative reminiscence of Kennedy-era American life; in the liner notes, Donald Fagen describes the songs as representative of the kinds of fantasies he entertained as an adolescent during the late '50s/early '60s, and he conveys the tenor of the times with some of his most personal and least obtuse material to date. Continuing in the smooth pop-jazz mode favored on the final Steely Dan records, The Nightfly is lush and shimmering, produced with cinematic flair by Gary Katz; romanticized but never sentimental, the songs are slices of suburbanite soap opera, tales of space-age hopes (the hit "I.G.Y.") and Cold War fears (the wonderful "The New Frontier," a memoir of fallout-shelter love) crafted with impeccable style and sophistication.

One of their many soulful releases, every single track is a gem, but there's little variation in tempo and style. Good luck that players offer a shuffle mode today, mix them with some Miriam Makeba and Hugh Masekela, and you get a real treat. Never released on CD.
Andrea Oliva & Angela Hewitt - Bach Flute Sonatas (2013) [Hyperion Hi-Res 24-44,1] RE-UP

Fans of Angela Hewitt will be delighted to find her in chamber mode, accompanying Andrea Oliva (described as ‘one of the best flutists of his generation, a shining star in the world of the flute’ by Sir James Galway) in a programme of J S Bach’s flute sonatas (including one by his most famous and talented son, CPE). Of unfailingly remarkable quality, all these works exploit the full potential of an instrument which was only just coming into its own when they were written. Oliva’s lyricism and agility coupled with Hewitt’s musicianship—not to mention her lifelong rapport with Bach’s music—make this an album to treasure.

Genre: Hard Funk,Classic Funk

An obscure album of jazzy funk, produced by Harvey Mason, with a similar feel to some of his own work on Arista during the late 70s. The album has vocals on a numbers of cuts, in kind of a part ensemble funk mode that doesn’t always work best for the group. Fortunately, there’s some great moments that change the groove a bit — like the mellow stepper “It’s You”, which features lead vocals by Stephanie Spruill — and the sublime instrumentals “Blackjack” and “Cinnamon”, both of which have a totally sweet jazzy groove that’s got a great warm polish to it!.
