MP3 320 kbps CBR | 61:51 min | 142 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Fresh Sound Records

Seamus Blake's first disc on the Fresh Sound New Talent label is a marvelous showcase not only for the leader but also for guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel, the album's other prominent solo voice. Bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jorge Rossy, together the backbone of Brad Mehldau's famous trio, lay down the ideal rhythmic universe for Blake and Rosenwinkel to flourish in. Opening with the wild, funkified double-time of "Perk," the group goes on to traverse a wide swath of territory, from the classic post-bop swing of "Happenstance" and "G.S.S." to the experimental sounds of "Token Cello" and "Of Ours."

At the turn of the decade, Clare Maguire was loudly touted as the heir to Amy Winehouse and Adele, and courted by the likes of Jay Z and Rick Rubin. Her debut album, however, turned out to be a collection of characterless power ballads, and the buzz faded. Now she has returned with the record she probably should have made in the first place: a collection of classy, retro pop that showcases her chameleonic voice. It’s not a style that holds a huge amount of excitement anymore, as indicated by the album’s more banal junctures, such as the rather stale Elizabeth Taylor and various cod-Adele moments. But Maguire proves it can still be startlingly fruitful – most evidently in the minimal, doomy blues of Falling Leaves, but hinted at in other tracks which seem to reference everything from Nico’s frosty folk and Desire-era Dylan to Beatlesesque pop and Paul Williams’s understatedly beautiful songwriting.

Vocalist Michael Vescera is no stranger to fans of melodic hard rock and heavy metal. In his early career he was the front man for Obsession. Then Japanese legends Loudness call upon him and he became the first western vocalist for the band. He later moved on to sing for shredder Yngwie Malmsteen. In the meantime to the present he's found time to form his own band, MVP, work with Dr. Sin, Roland Grapow (Helloween, Masterplan), The Reign Of Terror (Joe Stump) as well as running his own studio and producing other acts. Experience, time and a busy schedule has not dulled one bit of Mr. Vescera's great vocals. 'A Sign Of Things To Come' proves his strength and viability.

“The title of this album refers to two different types of strangers: the people who once were strangers that have slowly walked into my life, and those people who were close to me in the past that became strangers over time. Aside from these definitions, ‘Stranger’ can also mean other things. As a Taiwanese musician based in New York City, I have been a minority in the USA for years. During this time I have often felt like a stranger everywhere I go.” (Jo-Yu Chen)

After returning to the spotlight with Ol' Blue Eyes Is Back, Frank Sinatra continued his comeback with Some Nice Things I've Missed. As the title suggests, the bulk of the album consists of songs that became popular during Sinatra's brief retirement, including hits by Stevie Wonder, Neil Diamond, Jim Croce, and Bread. By and large, the material is adapted for big bands, with a couple of tracks featuring slight contemporary touches, like folky acoustic guitar. The majority of the album is arranged and produced by Don Costa…

Bernard Stanley "Acker" Bilk was an English clarinettist and vocalist known for his appearance – goatee, bowler hat and striped waistcoat – and breathy, vibrato-rich, lower-register clarinet style. Bilk's 1962 instrumental tune "Stranger on the Shore" became the UK's biggest selling single of 1962: it was in the UK charts for more than 50 weeks, peaking at number two, and was the first No. 1 single in the United States by a British artist in the era of the modern Billboard Hot 100 pop chart.
