Uzbek-born pianist Anna Malikova is best known for her interpretations of music by Chopin. She has performed and recorded both concertos, the complete etudes, preludes, and impromptus, and numerous individual solo works. But Malikova is hardly a specialist: she plays a wide range of compositions, taking in large segments of the outputs of J.S. Bach, Soler, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Liszt, Saint-Saëns, Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich. She has toured extensively throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, and South America, and has performed with many of the world's leading ensembles, including the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, and the major orchestras of Warsaw, Moscow, Sydney, Oslo, Tashkent, and others.

As the morning sun melts the snow on the high mountain peaks the clear fresh waters gather from the Mountain Stream. Its constant energy cascades and tumbles over rocks and crags forming pools and waterfalls that give new life to high soaring birds and other mountain animals. The power of the water builds to form its own path where it plunges into the Caverns Of Tranquillity. New sounds take to the air as if in nature's own cathedrals, the voices of nature are blended in song with the meandering waters. Bursting from the rock face in a sunlit waterfall the stream forms a rainbow in the sky and is reborn into the Peaceful Waters of a Happy Valley. The air is filled with the sound of birdsong, deer and other animals that come to drink from the Mountain Stream to find peace and tranquillity…

So, a few years after I released "You and the Night; Night and the Music", I went back to the recording studio. The first thing I did was to look into the vault of previously unreleased tracks that I had recorded with the band. These tracks were not included in my prior albums for various reasons, mostly because they did not fit in with the overall vibe. With the help of modern technology, I was able to re-record the vocals. With a tad more mature tone, some of these songs seem more convincing when I sing it at a later stage of my life.

Genre: Jazz | Label: Good Time Records

2015 release, the first solo guitar album from Julian Lage. WORLD'S FAIR is so spontaneous and intimate in feel it's as if this prodigious guitarist had just arrived in your living room, picked up his vintage Martin, and simply started to play. It's very much a project created in the moment, a dozen acoustic guitar tracks recorded over the course of a mere two days, at Sear Sound in New York City. In concept, however, WORLD'S FAIR was more than a year in the making, as Lage gradually came to embrace the rich musical and emotive possibilities within the austere format of one musician and one acoustic guitar.

‘Coming Home’ is Julian Sas’s ninth studio album and the first as a foursome with new addition Roland Bakker on keyboards. Fans and critics paying attention to detail already noticed on Sas’s previous outing ‘Bound To Roll’, a modest change of direction. Especially the fat Hammond organ licks caught their attention. A song that highlights the new direction is the dark sounding ‘A Change Is Gonna Come’ in which Julian Sas on guitar and Roland Bakker on keyboard play a joint melody-line. The lyric, Julian explains, is about the quest of man. Where and why? Aren’t we all looking for a change? A life of freedom in every sense without fear? A life without threads of religious or political fanatics? Many of the songs on ‘Coming Home’ are about freedom, spiritual and physical, about taking responsibility and the like…

'Coming Home' is the ninth studio album of blues-guitar-virtuoso Julian Sas's and the first as a foursome with new addition Roland Bakker on keyboards. Fans and critics paying attention to detail already noticed on Sas's previous successful outing 'Bound To Roll', a modest change of direction. Especially the fat Hammond organ licks caught their attention. The Julian Sas Band is a band always searching for what makes the difference. Julian Sas - "… it makes me feel real good to come up again with a new sound… a band on the move is always looking for new input, and new sounds… I'm very excited about my 'new' band with Roland Baker on keyboards and the strong, reliable rhythm section of my loyal partners in crime Tenny Tahamata on bass and Rob Heijne on drums. They are the best".

The fluidity of his playing on this album is amazing. Each note falls in place at exactly the right moment. Besides the well-known J.S. Bach, he also introduces us to several other less-known Baroque composers: Gaspar Sanz, Fernando Sor, S.L. Weiss, & Robert de Visee. Too often, Baroque music is presented as just an exercise in counterpoint. In this album, the rhythm is matched to human emotions in such a way that it's not just an academic exercise. The music is both exhilarating and soothing.

Julian Bream is, without a doubt, one of the premiere classical guitarists of the modern recording era. Comparisons between great guitarists is often unfair and misleading as they each have their own styles - and each musician and his/her style tends to be particularly well suited to certain types of music. For example, Andres Segovia's style, cultivated by self-teaching throughout his now ended life, concentrated on flowing legatto smoothness and flowing melodies. Bream's, on the other hand, while equally masterful, is better characterized as emphasizing the precision and crispness of each and every individual note. What better composer to focus on to show this particular proclivity that J. S. Bach, whose work, having been written largely for the keyboards (harpsichord) but also for the lute and triple harp, tends to emphasize the kinds of music Bream excels at. Stacatto phrasings, each written to be played with crystalline exactness, are the types of pieces wherein Bream's magnificence is conspicuous and best showcased. Thus, the special relevance of this particular compilation of some of his best Bach work on this CD.
