Monkey House is the creation of singer/songwriter/arranger/producer Don Breithaupt. Left is their fifth album, and the follow-up to their 2012 album, Headquarters. Left features a slew of great players including Jay Graydon, guitar ace Elliott Randall, saxophonist Donnie McCaslin, Kim Mitchell, Drew Zingg and Michael Leonhart. Left is more than a collection of songs, it's a fully formed and compelling work of art Don explains that "I'm rather a traditionalist. I view the making of an album as part of the art form. It is meant to be cohesive, something that musically and sonically sounds like one body of work.

Hed Kandi’s most iconic album concept returns with enough blissed-out beats to keep you dancing all summer long With three mixes of sun-kissed grooves and sultry Hed Kandi hedonism, Beach House takes the listener on a journey from sunrise to sunset. It's the perfect accompaniment to both poolside listening and the hottest beach parties of the summer.
Although Orrin Keepnews' Riverside Records was primarily a jazz label, the company dabbled in blues in the 1960s – and one of the bluesmen who recorded for Riverside was John Lee Hooker. Recorded in 1960, this Keepnews-produced session came at a time when Hooker was signed to Vee-Jay. The last thing Keepnews wanted to do was emulate Hooker's electric-oriented, very amplified Vee-Jay output, which fared well among rock and R&B audiences. Keepnews had an acoustic country blues vision for the bluesman, and That's My Story favors a raw, stripped-down, bare-bones approach – no electric guitar, no distortion, no singles aimed at rock & rollers.
