In 2015 Ryuichi Sakamoto composed the music for Nagasaki: Memories Of My Son, the latest film by legendary Japanese filmmaker Yoji Yamada whose career has spanned six decades and over 80 films. Yamada is perhaps the last director to have lived through what is now known as the Golden Age of Japanese cinema – a period that gave rise to Kurosawa, Mizoguchi and Ozu. The film tells the story of Nobuko Fukuhara, a mother who has lost he son in the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. It is an intimate character study of Nobuko, whose son begins to communicate to hear as a ghost.

The Impulse 2-on-1 series is a mixed bag: "The Joy Of Sax" (1977) and "Warm And Sonny" (1976). Despite the fact that these recordings are over-produced in the extreme by Esmond Edwards, who jammed up the music with too much percussion, boring guitar solos and strings that were not needed, Sonny Criss and his brilliance on the alto saxophone still shines through. As these were Sonny's last two recordings, done just before his tragic death in 1977, they are worth having, and Sonny sounds beautiful, as always.

Genre: Jazz, Bop, Post-Bop - Recording Date: Apr 28, 1982

Milt Jackson and his quartet of 1982 (with pianist Monty Alexander, bassist Ray Brown and drummer Mickey Roker) recorded three albums of material during an engagement at Ronnie Scott's Club in London. Pianist/composer Thelonious Monk had passed away two months earlier and Jackson decided to pay tribute to his old associate. The vibraphonist is in excellent form on four of Monk's standards in addition to a lengthy "Django," his own "Think Positive" and Ray Brown's "Blues for Groundhog." Review by Scott Yanow

"Immortelle" is a word that few may know. It was unknown to me until I first came to Corsica where I became acquainted with this wonderful medicinal plant, the aroma of its oil and its strong invigorating effect. I enjoyed helping my friends distill an essential oil from it. The fragrance brings memories of mountains, warm rocks and views of the sea in Corsica. The title of the CD as well as the individual tracks have names of plants and flowers which have helped humanity with their healing powers for millennia. They even made life a little more pleasant with their aroma. Nature has always been an inspiration for me, its influence can be heard on my CDs through birdsong, crickets, the sound of mountain streams and ocean waves. This album is therefore an expression of gratitude to the nature of our planet with the understanding that the smallest flower may have healing powers. The cover image was painted by my friend Padma and shows the harmonious union of Yin and Yang, of male and female energy or, as in Indian mythology, Shiva and Shakti. It is a state of silence and restfulness in which healing becomes possible.

The Best of Chuck Mangione collects various tracks from the smooth jazz pioneer's '80s Columbia recordings. While not as influential as Mangione's '70s output, his '80s albums retain much of what made him so popular an artist – catchy hooks, lush production and his clear, crisp trumpet sound. Included are such standout tracks as "Journey to a Rainbow," "Love Bug Boogie" and "Memories of Scirocco." Oddly, a live version of "Land of Make Believe" and the single version of "Feels So Good" make it on to this collection. These '70s hits don't really belong here, but should satisfy casual fans looking for his most popular recordings alongside his mid-career stuff.

On A Queen of Hearts, French-American vocalist Rosemary Standley, better known as the singer for the band Moriarty, turns her vocal talents to the cabaret era. In 2013, she performed in the musical A Queen of Hearts directed by Juliette Deschamps at the Theatre de la Bastille. Afterward, she and pianist Sylvain Griotto took the show on the road. Here, she slips into the skin of a star and evokes memories of Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe, Nina Simone and Billie Holiday.

The score to Little Shop was written by Fred Katz. Katz, born in 1919, was a child prodigy on both piano and cello, but would become a well-known cellist in the Los Angeles music scene of the 1950s—the first really to take the cello into the jazz arena. He became part of the very unique Chico Hamilton Quintet and was both heard and seen in the film Sweet Smell Of Success. At some point in the late 1950s, Corman found Katz or Katz found Corman and the two collaborated on several films, including A Bucket Of Blood, The Wasp Woman, Ski Troop Attack, Little Shop, and Creature From The Haunted Sea. Katz’s score perfectly accompanies a film that is occasionally worthy of Ionesco in its surreal weirdness. In fact, Katz’s music is as much fun as the film—it’s funky, jazzy, beat, hipster music, with occasional horror touches, that will keep a smile on your face or conjure up wonderful memories of Seymour Krelboin, Gravis Mushnick, Audrey Fulquard, Burson Fouch, Wilbur Force, and, of course, the great Audrey Junior.
