This album, comprised of previously unissued material, stands as a fitting tribute to the integrity and splendid musicianship of tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh and bassist Red Mitchell who were true soul brothers who played together intermittently in the infancy of modern jazz, a friendship that survived nearly 40 years and was broken only by the sudden and tragic death of Warne in December, 1987.

A new anthology of the oft-overlooked 1990s indie rockers zeroes in on what they did best: gentle jangle, tumbleweed drift, and hazy harmonies that display profound comfort in quietude. Despite its seemingly utilitarian title, 1992-2001 is no comprehensive career retrospective. A handful of the band’s official singles are nowhere to be found here, and over half of its 16 tracks are previously unreleased, salvaged from a stash of rehearsal-room demos that had been languishing in drummer Steve Hadley’s backyard shed all these years.

Pianist Michael Naura’s 1970 album Call assimilates contemporary sounds of free jazz and rock as well as the collective playing styles of a younger generation of musicians. His first album in eight years, this definitely showcased Naura in a new light. Two members of his old quintet, vibraphonist Wolfgang Schlüter and drummer Joe Nay, appear on Call and both had effortlessly mastered, as had Naura, the newly emerging rock and blues-oriented styles of the era. With the addition of electric bassist Eberhard Weber, a jazz-rock trendsetter stepped into the band and had a substantial impact on the new quartet’s sound.

The unique quintet project is rounded out by Mike Mainieri (vibraphone), Michael Moore (bass) and Steve Gadd (drums) and the results are as relaxed as they are lyrical.

On "Silent Ways", Danish vocalist Caecilie Norby interprets her favourite singer/songwriter melodies, from Bob Dylan to Paul Simon, CCR to Soundgarden, charging them up with classical and jazz influences. The almost chamber musical, tranquil form hinted at by the album's title is classical, as is the emotional expressiveness of her interpretations. The jazzy approach lies in her singing technique, in the arrangements and the hand-picked musicians in the band improvising magically together.

"Album of the Year" is Faith No More's sixth full-length release. It demonstrates the same kind of straight-ahead approach as its predecessor, „King For A Day“, but also contains plenty of surprises. The album was recorded entirely at bassist Billy Gould's home studio, and contains the highlights 'Collision,' 'Stripsearch,' 'Last Cup of Sorrow,' 'Naked in Front of the Computer,' and 'Helpless.' Despite the emergence of numerous up-and-coming bands that were mentioning FNM as an important influence, the bandmembers amicably went their separate ways upon the completion of their 1997-98 tour.
