Genre: Vocal Jazz, Piano Jazz, Swing | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Membran Music (222756-321)

This excellent box set covers Nat's career from the beginning through about 1954. The sound is extremely good though there is noticeable background static on some of the older tracks. Only a very few tracks contain enough noise to be quite noticeable. Rather than restricting the content to his singing career, this set also includes Nat as a jazz pianist, as an accompanying pianist and as part of the Nat King Cole Trio which preceeded his latest career as a solo singer.

This fantastic album has been released in early 1970 on French BYG Actuel label (home of Gong, Alan Jack Civilisation and Freedom) and at the time it was one of the earliest French rock albums! Catalyse LP consisted a powerful collection of largely instrumental and improvised progressive music with strong psychedelic and jazz infuences, where electric guitars and flute parts were backed by very busy rhythm section and David Allen-like vocals. The music of Ame Son often sounded like a combination of early Gong, late 60 ‘s Pink Floyd, Group 1850 and even Jethro Tull. In addition 5 rare tracks (from 1969 to 1971) have been added - including rare, non-LP single.

Starting in 1994, Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson began solo recordings described as "experiments in texture," resulting in his work under the name Bass Communion.
After starting with the barely there snippet "Shopping," consisting of vinyl crackle and near-inaudible soft tones, the first Bass Communion album gets down to business with Theo Travis' guest sax work on "Drugged," number one of two songs by that name on the release. The album's other temporary visitor is Robert Fripp, sampled and otherwise distorted and looped by Steven Wilson for the other "Drugged" - otherwise, it's Wilson all the way, creating his own version of ambient music…

This volume from Praga's critically-acclaimed Richter Edition series features an audiophile SACD remastering of the great Russian pianist playing Tchaikovsky. The program pairs the composer's two most popular scores in performances by two uncontested Russian masters. This recording resurrects of one of Sviatoslav Richter;s rare encounters with one of the finest conductors of the 20th century, Yevgeny Mravinsky. Richter is heard in a fiery 1958 recording of the first Piano Concerto, while Mravinsky is featured in a 1956 recording of the Pathetique symphony. This is an indispensable release for anyone interested in these two legendary artists.

Both underappreciated masters of jazz improvisation, Odean Pope and pianist Dave Burrell dish up some beautiful music throughout the nine original compositions found on this disk. This may seem like a somewhat subdued set for the label and these two giants, but anyone who has followed their careers knows that, although both musicians are identified as players pushing the edge, neither one of these fellows is a scorcher…

In the summer of 2018, Anna Calvi released her third album Hunter. On the album, she explored sexuality and breaking the laws of gender conformity. Following a stellar 18 months, which saw Calvi write her first television score (for peaky blinders) and receive her third consecutive Mercury Prize nomination (the first solo artist to achieve this feat), Calvi has now crafted a stunning reworking of Hunter into Hunted. Revisiting her first recordings for Hunter, Calvi found they offered an intimate and private view of the songs' Initial intentions. Distilled to their bare essence on Hunted: her masterful guitar playing and formidable vocals, Calvi then asked on Barnett, Joe Talbot (idles), Charlotte Gainsbourg and Julia Holter to collaborate with her and further transform the songs.

EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 51:51 | 175 MB

This is the best recording of both Schumann's and Schubert's fantasies. Perahia plays Schubert Fantasy with such clarity, delicacy and sophistication that Pollini's Wanderer Fantasy sounds flat and bland. (well, all the recordings by early Pollini are super flat without any depth anyways). Richter's Schubert Fantasy is one of the best around, yet Perahia does it with extra flair and depth. Perahia sounds even better with Schumann as his Schumann always sounds impeccable. Perahia gives so much air to the fantasy and the music flows just so naturally. Richter's Schumann sounds a bit too self-indulgent to me.

The story of Wally is one of those strange convoluted and rather heart-warming tales which surface once in a while in the rock 'n' roll multiverse. The band was formed in Harrogate and in the early to mid-1970s and quickly built themselves quite a reputation…
