On their second album, things start coming together for Malicorne. It's still a folksy album but the quality is high throughout and there are some moments of astonishing beauty.

This is a 'nostalgia trip' for me, since the band was founded in the second half of the Seventies I have seen fellow Dutchmen Flairck at least 10 times during the tours of the albums Variaties Op Een Dame (1978), Gevecht Met De Engel (1980) and Circus (1981), mainly in the wonderful venue Diligensia in my hometown The Hague.

One of the most elegant and smooth jazz albums I ever heard Oregon jazz band from USA, created a very unique album in my opinion with a lots of unusual instruments for this kind of music, like Sitar, Tabla, Flugelhorn and Oboe and give a new dimension to the jazz music.

On Oregon's debut album what you get is jazz fusion with a strong emphasis on the jazz side of the equation. In fact, I'd count Oregon as being one of the few fusion outfits who don't actually draw that much on rock - instead, the main non-jazz influences are folk music and raga, the latter seeping in through Collin Walcott's tabla and sitar.

The mother of all solo instrumental albums, and with good reason. Mixing traditional carols with Pachelbel's Canon and a few originals, Winston produces a solo piano album of unparalleled – and undeniable – beauty. How can music be simultaneously stirring and soothing, relaxed yet exalted? Millions have found the answer here, and an industry has spent decades trying to duplicate it.

SHADOWFAX. Nice name for a progressive rock band. At least that's how they started off. Named after Gandalf's a horse in Tolkien's The Lord Of The Rings.
