Every year, the Fake or Fortune team receive hundreds of requests for help from the owners of mysterious portraits. Everyone wants to know two things - who is it, and who painted it? The team choose three of the most promising portraits to investigate further - a child, believed to be by prized modern artist Willem de Kooning, a young lady, attributed to 18th-century society painter Philip Mercier, and a formidable-looking man, said to be by 19th-century German master Adolph von Menzel.

Genre: Smooth Jazz, R&B, Soul | Label: Sounds of Crenshaw

Good luck pigeonholing Terrace Martin; on Velvet Portraits, the L.A. producer/saxophonist (who entered the limelight working with Kendrick Lamar) creates a wildly creative collision of jazz, soul, funk, and hip-hop that’s loaded with guests and restless creativity. Case in point? Take “Valdez off Crenshaw”—a wah-wah-infused, organ-driven instrumental based on a Donny Hathaway tune. Martin dresses it up with whistling synth leads and Zappa-esque guitars. Want to go further out? Take “Turkey Taco,” a showpiece of Outkast-inspired freakiness with a rubbery synth-bass, purring backup singers, and an off-kilter acoustic piano. When it’s time to come back, try “Patiently Waiting,” a soulful, sweat-soaked blues throwback featuring a gloriously gutsy vocal from Uncle Chucc or the simmering R&B of “Think of You." Weird, wonderful, and impossible to pin down, this is future-soul music from a musician who elegantly connects the music of Stax to the streets of Compton and beyond.

Kent Nagano and the Hallé continue to commit to CD less celebrated portions of the Britten canon. Last year there was the four-act Billy Budd; before that the premiere recording of a concert version of the radio drama The Rescue. Now come two more firsts, recordings of the Double Concerto - prepared from Britten's almost complete sketches by Colin Matthews and presented by Nagano at Aldeburgh in 1997 - and the Two Portraits from 1930. The second of these is a portrait of Britten himself, a surprisingly plaintive and reflective meditation for viola and strings in E minor. The image is belied by the rest of the music on the disc, which is buoyant, energetic, young man's music all written before Britten was 26. Big guns Kremer and Bashmet are brought in for the Double Concerto and give of their impassioned best. Nagano and the Hallé are appropriately spirited and vigorous throughout the disc. It's not mature Britten, but clearly points the way forward and is worth getting to know.
