Label: Heavenly Sweetness | Year Of Release: 2015

Nouvelle compilation “Kouté Jazz”, 12 titres de jazz antillais sélectionnés par Digger’s digest, sortie le 25 septembre (digital,CD,LP).
Le jazz et les Antilles, c’est une vieille histoire, dont on trouve traces dès les premiers enregistrements. D’Alexandre Stellio à Jean-Claude Montredon, d’Al Lirvat à Marius Cultier, de Jacques Coursil à Mario Canonge, la liste est longue de ceux qui ont établis une connexion durable entre ces deux univers si proches. Pour qualifier le jazz antillais, on parlera aux premières heures de swing caribéen, de jazz biguine, une vague qui va débarquer en Europe dans l’entre-deux-guerres. « Les Antillais ont apporté beaucoup de musiques dans leurs bagages, mais les Français ne se sont alors pas rendus compte que le chaînon manquant entre les Etats-Unis et La France, c’étaient les Antilles ! », se souvenait en 2002 le poète Roland Brival, dont le cultissime Creole Gypsy était alors tout juste réédité.

The French label Barclay Records, with which singer/songwriter Jacques Brel was associated for most of the 1960s and '70s, released a compilation of recordings of his songs in March 2004 that differs significantly from this U.S. edition. The French version of Next Brel has 15 tracks to the American 12, but that doesn't mean simply that three tracks have been deleted. In fact, there are six tracks on the French album not found on the American one: "If We Only Have Love," by Dionne Warwick; "Amsterdam," by Anne Watts; "If You Go Away," by Emiliana Torrini; "Next," by Gavin Friday & the Man Seezer; "The Desperate Ones," by Nina Simone; and "Seasons in the Sun," by Terry Jacks (a number one hit in the U.S.). But there are also three tracks on the American album not contained on the French one: "Les Flamandes," by French chanteuse Barbara; "Ne Me Quitte Pas," by Nina Simone; and "My Death," by Scott Walker. The deletions and substitutions make for less repetition of songs on the American album.

With The All-Baroque Box we realize one of our fondest dreams: harnessing the deep catalogue of Archiv Produktion (supplemented on occasion by Decca L oiseau lyre recordings) to create a comprehensive collection of great music from Monteverdi to Bach. The music ranges from huge Baroque (Missa Salisburgensis, Venetian polychoral, Charpentier Te Deum) to intimate Baroque (the Goldberg Variations, Bach cello suites, solo cantatas) overwhelming in its impact and emotional content.

VA - Debussy: The Essentials (2016)
Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 02:01:55 | 289 MB
Label: Deutsche Grammophon

A French composer of piano music, opera, cantatas, ballets, and orchestral and chamber works. His most notable pieces are "Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune (Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun)" (1894) and "Nocturnes" (1899). Inspired often by pictorial subjects (Monet's water impressions became "reflections in the water" for piano) and by the elusive and unnameable in nature (footsteps in the snow, still leaves, and the hypnotic, overwhelming sensations of his rare visits to the French coastline), Debussy's music develops chords, melodies, and orchestration that are connected more by a single surreal observation than by an overriding logic.
