Besides being a fascinating experiment in musical cross-pollination, the music on this disc spectacularly succeeds both from the standpoint of pure musical genius and as a demonstration of jazz's ability to turn (somewhat) mundane materials (in this case mainly sixties ska and rocksteady tunes) into pure alchemic gold, in the hands of the right players. And that's the key to the success of this disc: both the principals' bona fides as authentic Jamaican pop icons, each having been an integral and essential part of the explosion of pre-reggae music that eventuated in the full glory of Bob Marley and the Wailers, and their absolute mastery of the jazz idiom. That they could magically meld such disparate music materials into one entirely captivating whole bespeaks both their authenticity as original practitioners of Jamaican pre-reggae pop and as stellar jazz improvisers.
Really, this disc is the best of both worlds: It centers on that mysterious and mesmeric ska/rocksteady beat, all the while magically expanding its boundaries into authentic jazz territory on account of the leaders' brilliant improvisational talents.
Don't miss out on the protean talents of Monty Alexander and Ernest Ranglin, two master of Jamaican music, fully on display here. – J. Dennis "Longboard jazzer"
Очередное произведение щедрого на выдумки и поиски пианиста Монти Александера, которого вообще не понятно к исполнителям какого стиля музыки относить. Известен, например, его альбом импровизаций на темы песен Боба Марли. На этот раз он выбрал в качестве основы музыку середины 60-х — родившуюся на Ямайке музыку ска, предка рэггей. С этой целью он пригласил для записи, надо думать, одного из отцов ска гитариста Эрнеста Ранглина.
Следует признать: музыка эта слушается с большим удовольствием. Не знаю, правда, сколь целиком она покоится в ложе собственно джаза, но джаза в ней достаточно много. Пульсирующий ритм ска создает основу для импровизаций пианиста, гитара же Ранглина работает скорее в рамках ямайской традиции. Наиболее яркая пьеса — “Row Fisherman”, в которой и можно найти квинтэссенцию всего проекта. Среди авторов пьес — большей частью мало известные у нас авторы. И только завершающая альбом “Redemption Song” принадлежит Бобу Марли. – Дмитрий ПОДБЕРЕЗСКИЙ, © 2004 Jazz-Квадрат

Per milioni di persone in tutto il mondo, dopo il 22 novembre del 1963 l'America non è più stata la stessa. Lee Harvey Oswald spara contro il presidente Kennedy. Dall'ombra partono invece i colpi dei congiurati, degli uomini che si nutrono di frustrazione e rancore: ex agenti dell'FBI, reduci della Baia dei Porci, faccendieri, lucidi calcolatori e psicopatici. Oswald, il ragazzo dall'identità e dal passato incerti, è il loro burattino. DeLillo ne fa il simbolo di un'America in cui le nevrosi quotidiane e la ricerca di ideali creano una miscela sempre sul punto di esplodere. L'autore porta alla luce tutto quello che sull'assassinio di Kennedy è stato detto e smentito, gridato e sussurrato, fino alla scena sacrificale di Dallas.

Che cosa unisce seimilacinquecento coppie di uno sposalizio di massa nello Yankee Stadium, un famoso scrittore ostinatamente misantropo e un funzionario svizzero ostaggio a Beirut? Dai funerali di Khomeini al massacro di Tienanmen, la realtà del mondo è che sette uomini senza nome posseggono tutto e ci muovono come trottole. La vita dello scrittore McGray di colpo s'intreccia con il terrorismo internazionale mentre una fotografa cerca di catturare le immagini della sua esistenza solitaria. Ancora una volta, DeLillo compone un affresco epocale dove le vite degli individui qualunque incontrano i grandi eventi della Storia, in uno spietato confronto fra destino personale e perpetuo movimento delle masse, incontrollabile solo all'apparenza. Lo fa con la sua solita ironia, elegante e tremenda, e con una beffarda voglia di provocazione.

Label: Jasmine Records | Release Year: 2016

There have been several CDs of Lula's King and Federal material but there has never been a complete collection. The 30 tracks that Jasmine have gathered here also include six sides released on the Chess subsidiary Argo Records which have rarely been re-issued. So if you own any of the compilations of her work issued in the CD era you will need this CD to complete your collection through to 1962. Features her sought after gospel recordings such as "Heavenly Road" along with the rock and roll favourite "Bump On A Log". Sadly Lula Reed withdrew herself from the music industry in 1964 never to return but this excellent new CD once again shows us what a superb and versatile talent she was.
