Original arrangements of Gershwin tunes are rare these days, but that's what you'll hear in this album by Kiri Te Kanawa. Granted, the arrangements sound somewhat dated according to 21st century tastes, but that's what makes them fascinating. These were like nothing anyone else was writing when the George and Ira first brought them to life. Kiri uses a different, somewhat breathier voice than you might be used to on her classical albums, probably not the type of voice Gershwin had in mind, but I think it generally works pretty well.

It's a damn shame that Leucocyte is the final studio album by the Esbjörn Svensson Trio. Svensson died in a tragic diving accident in June of 2008, shortly after this set was finished. More than any other recording issued by this excellent band, Leucocyte captures the art of music making at the moment of conception; it was recorded as live-in-the-studio improvisation over two days in an Australian studio. It was completely finished, post-production and all, with a release date before Svensson's death. The words "post-production" mean plenty when it comes to E.S.T.'s music. The trio often recorded and added sonic effects to their structured, composed pieces. It underscored their hip sophistication and accessibility. It made them a hit with both jazz fans and younger audiences who listen to Radiohead, Sigur Rós, and even heavy metal more than jazz.

With their sizable membership and prominent horn section, the Suffers might look (and sometimes sound) like one of the many soul revival acts that have risen into public consciousness in the wake of the success of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, but a listen to the group's debut album makes it clear they're up to something a bit different. The Suffers documents a band whose music speaks to the past and the present at once; these ten musicians clearly have a soft spot for classic soul and R&B, but there's also a big portion of jazz, pop, classic rock, and reggae bubbling up in their music, and in some respects, this music harkens back to the era of adventurous rock bands with horn sections (like Blood, Sweat & Tears, 10 Wheel Drive, and Chicago in their prime) as much as mid-'60s soul.

Digitally remastered and expanded edition including six bonus tracks. Memphis during the 70s was a hot bed of musical talent. Sure, it's blues and R&B roots had always been proudly on display, but with the explosion of FM radio, bigger live venues, and the establishment of a renowned studio (Ardent), the city seemed to be providing it's home grown musicians with an opportunity to set the world on fire. None of these possibilities were lost on Target, a cabal of tough rockers keen to stamp their identity on the local scene and beyond. Riding a wave of creativity and seeking to maximize their already solid reputation as a band to watch, Target took…

Digitally remastered and expanded edition including two bonus tracks. Arguably the British rock scene was hugely influenced by the massive commercial impact of American melodic rock bands that emerged during the late 70s. However there was a time, earlier in the decade, when British rock cast a huge impact on American music. Acts such as Free, Bad Company, Trapeze and Deep Purple were the hot ticket items of the time and their influence was staggeringly persuasive… not least on Target. Memphis based Target were keen students of the British sound and forged their style and identity with exacting accuracy…

Label: ACT Music | Release Year: 2017

German brothers Julian and Roman Wasserfuhr show the action-packed nature of Brooklyn through hard-hitting, horn-and-piano entanglements. Their new album, Landed in Brooklyn and features established musicians, like Grammy-winning Blackstar tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin, who is all over this nine-track extravaganza, bassist Tim Lefebvre, and Kneebody drummer Nate Wood. Julian plays trumpet and flugelhorn, while Roman goes off on piano, marimba, and seaboard. The two received the break of a lifetime when Siegfried “Siggi” Loch, founder of the independent German jazz label ACT, gave the brothers their first shot at 17 and 20.

Twenty years ago Rainer Tempel was still a student in Nuremberg (jazz piano, diploma thesis in 1998 about Vince Mendoza). Twenty years ago the first album of the Rainer Tempel Big Band ("forward + back", 1996) also appeared. Since then, much has happened: Rainer Tempel founded a whole series of other bands, from the trio to the Elftett strength; He composed for classical musicians and jazz ensembles such as the Zurich Jazz Orchestra and the big bands of HR, RIAS, SWR and NDR (with whom he even won an echo jazz for "Petite Fleur", ACT 2014). He was a keyboarder in various bands - with the jazz / hip-hop trumpeter Joo Kraus, the singer / songwriter Ron Spielman or the Dieter Thomas Kuhn band; And he gave his experiences further: as a professor at music colleges in Lucerne and Stuttgart, he even took over as head of the Institute for Jazz & Pop in 2013 - in short: he has developed into a successful, sought-after and versatile musician.

Fans of Strunz & Farah will find pleasing similarities on this release by the spirited duo of Lara And Reyes. Rooted in improvisation, Two Guitars… borrows from traditions that span the globe: rhythms of Africa and South and Central America, chord structures from Spain and Mexico. You'll hear melodic scales that can be traced to the Mediterranean, Middle East and India. This range of tonal colors creates an original repertoire of moving music with insistent rhythms and challenging, exotic harmonic and melodic diversity. Bass and percussion, by Randy Johnson and Eric Casillas respectively provide the fuel, while the guitaristics of the two lead players provide more than ample passion…
