The harmonically advanced trumpeter Thad Jones is a perfect contrast to the tenor of Dexter Gordon on this enjoyable Prestige LP. Gordon was somewhat forgotten in the United States at the time (his "comeback" was still four years away), but is in excellent form on the four numbers, particularly during a passionate version of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face."

Recorded for Mercury in 1976, the Nightflight sessions saw Szabo travelling to Philadelphia's Sigma Sound Studios to make an album indebted to the funky, soulful music of the legendary Philadelphia International Records home to such artists as Teddy Pendergrass, Lou Rawls, Billy Paul, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, The Three Degrees and The O'Jays. Deepening Nightflight's links to The Philadelphia Sound were the musicians accompanying Szabo. The rhythm section comprised members of Instant Funk a group who appeared on many Philadelphia International recordings alongside various studio players, among them keyboardist-composer Dexter Wansel and guitarist-pianist-singer Bunny Sigler who also produced the sessions. The result is a colourful fusion of lush soul music with Szabo's distinctive brand of jazz guitar.

Back to Now is the seventh and latest studio album by American R&B female group Labelle, released on October 21, 2008. The album is the group's first in over thirty years though they had sung on songs together on occasion. Sounding every bit as sassy, fresh and edgy as in their heyday, Patti, Nona and Sarah have brought together some of the powerhouse talents of today & yesterday to create a true event. The first single 'Rollout' prominently features Wyclef Jean on an upbeat contemporary anthem that will expose Labelle to a whole new audience. Lenny Kravitz plays all over the three tracks he produced combining unique R&B retro sounds with his natural rock edge. The Masters of Philly Soul Kenneth Gamble & Leon A. Huff bring their magic to four of the album's ten tracks. The album closes with a recording of 'Miss Otis Regrets' from 1969. Produced by Kit Lambert.

Singer Jean Carne's career has had various incarnations, as well as a slight name change similar to Dionne Warwick's (adding an "e" to the end of her last name as Warwick did for a short time). Born Sarah Jean Perkins in Columbus, GA, she was raised in Atlanta. She began singing gospel music in the church choir at age four; she also took piano lessons and learned the clarinet and bassoon. Carne won a music scholarship to Morris Brown College and began her recording career in 1969 with her husband, keyboardist Doug Carn, on the Black Jazz label, where she was one of the last vocalists to work with jazz legend Duke Ellington before his death.
