David Toop's Sound Body hums and glows with life! Five gorgeous morphing Electronic tracks that continue Samadhi Sound's exploration of quiet, minimal, melodic music worlds created by the likes of Harold Budd, Akira Rabelais, Fennesz, Derek Bailey, David Sylvian and others. These remarkable soundscapes have only become possible in the twenty-first century, when improvisation, digital composing and mixing, and traditional music forms from around the globe all mutate and fuse in ways that surprise and delight.

The audio companion to David Toop's excellent book advances the case he made, that Les Baxter, Aphex Twin, The Beach Boys, Herbie Hancock, King Tubby and My Bloody Valentine are all related by their effect on sound pioneering. A double-disc set, Ocean of Sound impresses not only with its incredible diversity of musical styles, but with how easily these artists work next to each other. The second disc includes consecutive contributions by Paul Schütze, the Velvet Undergound, Holger Czukay of Can, The Beach Boys, African Headcharge and Sun Ra. Besides illustrating Toop's point beautifully, the album is an excellent addition to the collection of any wide-ranging ambient fan.

Genre: Trance / Label: Armada Records

Ever the master of soothing atmospheres and chord progressions that spoil the ear, Ashley Wallbridge brings yet another one of his melodic cuts to Gareth Emerys Garuda. Chock-full with sparkling plucks, eargasmic vocal shots, this is one to bring elation to its listeners like no other. Balearic in its vibes, rock-solid in the rest. Stepping forward ever so often as the secret weapon of the A State Of Trance, Willem de Roo is quite the force to be reckoned with. Delivering blows with his anthemic melodies whenever he steps up to the plate, the Dutchman commands waves of energy and power as if they were his personal army.

Reissue with the latest remastering. Comes with liner notes. One of Barney Kessel's greatest albums ever – a rare Italian-only session that has a sparkly Brazilian groove! The record was recorded in Rome in 1970, and it's got Kessel's guitar fronting a combo with organ and some very tight percussion – all dancing around in a fast samba mode that's different from virtually anything else he ever recorded – very groovy, very upbeat, and very much what you might expect when the talents of a west coast guitar giant meets the best of the Italian studio scene of the time! There's loads of original tracks on the set – like "Freeway", "Lison", "BJ's Samba", and "On the Riviera" – and the whole thing has a breezy dancing feel that's really wonderful!

The only reason I can think of for there not yet being a review of these four boxed sets, is that those who own them are just too busy having one hell of a blast listening to them. Some people moan about the 50 year copyright law for audio recordings in Europe, but without it this highly entertaining, eye-opening and educational undertaking could never have taken place. These 100 discs (spread over four boxed sets of 25 discs) tell the story of jazz from 1898 to 1959.

VA - Hit List 2: More Hot 100 Chartbusters Of The 70s (2016)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 01:27:06 | 201 Mb
Genre: Pop Rock, Soul / Label: ACE

Ace's Hit List series returns with another top-notch collection of US Hot 100 hits from the first half of the 1970s. The 1970s are now viewed with the same serious musical appreciation as the 50s and 60s. Hit List 2 will be a valuable addition to the collection of anyone who grew up listening to the decade's vibrant music. The album-oriented sound of FM radio might have arrived in the US by the start of the decade, but via the AM band you could still hear a diversity of snappy 45s on your transistor radio. Hit List 2 revisits another 24 of those singles, many of which were also successful in the UK. All versions heard here are the original US single versions, rather than the often-different album versions that have frequently been compiled into other 70s collections. In true Ace style, many of the featured artists are as popular now as when they charted with these songs, while for others the featured selection represented their one moment of chart fame.
