His singing has been noted as 'very loud' by both his contemporaries and himself, and he claims to be a self-taught singer with 'no discipline for lessons'. Graham Bonnet is the 1977 debut album by Graham Bonnet.

Pazop is a Belgian super-group that included Polish violinist Jan Jakub "Kuba" Szczepansky, drummer Jacky Mauer (Both of Wallace Connection), keyboardist Frank Wuyts and flautist-singer Dirk Bogaert (Both of Waterloo). Patrick Cogneaux, former Arkham (The Belgian Soft Machine) bass player, completed the line-up. The band recorded two albums, but both stayed unreleased due to contractual problems. Twenty-three years after, the Musea label reissued three-quarters of the two opuses recorded. It contains the only true music Pazop displayed, a band essentially known for its commercial singles. This complex music is full of rhythm and tempos changes, built on the rhythmical and solo roles of violin, organ and flute. Pazop is close to a mix of East Of Eden, Soft Machine, Frank Zappa, Moving Gelatine Plates, Jethro Tull and Van Der Graaf Generator.

Avid Jazz here presents four classic Milt Jackson albums, including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered double CD.
‘The Jazz Skyline’, ‘Milt Jackson Quartet’, ‘Telefunken Blues’, ‘Plenty Plenty Soul’ plus three tracks with the Thelonious Monk Quartet. ‘The Jazz Skyline’ finds Milt in 1957 in a relaxing blowing session, perhaps a thousand miles away from the more structured and complex music he was making with his other ‘day’ band, John Lewis and The Modern Jazz Quartet. For the ‘Quartet’ sessions two years earlier in 1955 Jackson is joined by Horace Silver, Percy Heath and Connie Kay in a set comprising mostly standard material, but none the less intriguing for that…

Anyone familiar with the industrial metal band's dark sense of irony should take one look at the title of Rammstein's 2009 album Liebe Ist Für Alle Da ("Love Is There for Everyone") and conclude that this one is a mean monster. Combining the tightness and punch of their 1997 album, Sehnsucht, with the musicianship and elaborate textures of their later work, Liebe Ist Für Alle Da is a grand achievement, skillfully dividing its time between razor sharp metal rockers like "B********," or the opening theme song "Rammlied" and nostalgic cabaret pieces that conjure the spirits of Weil and Brecht at a goth club. The best of the latter is the naked and haunting closer "Roter Sand," but little touches of a sinister yesteryear are everywhere, like the fake vaudeville music in "Haifisch," or the soundtrack strings of "Wiener Blut," which are eventually overcome by a guitar-crunching juggernaut…

2009 four CD antology from the British Jazz/Prog/Art Rock band. Pieced together with the active assistance of band leader Jon Hiseman, Morituri Te Salutant features extended highlights from Colosseum's original albums as well as numerous previously-unissued studio and live outtakes, including BBC session material, the aborted late '60s single `Tell Me Now' and a host of alternative recordings from the tour that was immortalised on what many admirers believe to be the band's definitive work, Colosseum Live. Lavishly packaged with hitherto unpublished photos and a 10,000 word essay, Morituri Te Salutant is the final word on one of the most individual and iconoclastic British bands to emerge from the musical and cultural revolution of the '60s.

Despite what some Yngwie Malmsteen fanatics would like to believe, the Swedish guitarist did not just pick up the six-string and pen such classically tinged heavy metal epics as "I'll See the Light Tonight" – he gradually worked his way up the ladder of speed-demon guitar wizardry. And while most admirers pick up Malmsteen's career from either his Steeler or Alcatrazz recordings, even earlier compositions exist, which have been compiled together for 2002's The Genesis. Although Ritchie Blackmore is often credited as being Malmsteen's prime six-string influence, Jimi Hendrix was also always at the top of the list, which is proven by an over 12-minute jam of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)." Elsewhere, such instrumentals as "Plague in Lucifer's Mind" and "Black Magic Suite Op. 3" show that Malmsteen was doing the "classical metal thang" even earlier than many assume.

Big James Montgomery is a young man with a solid pedigree in the world of rhythm and blues. He played with Little Milton, Albert King and Buddy Guy before becoming trombonist and lead vocalist with the Chicago Playboys, the Windy City's premier R&B ensemble. Some years after the passing of former bandleader Johnny Christian, James and saxophonist Charles Kimball reformed and revitalized the band, turning it into a dynamic, soulful sextet that's turning heads and making new fans in Chicago and out on the road. RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW is a great introduction to the Playboys' unique blend of straight ahead blues and gospel-tinged, horn-driven soul.

Connie Francis recorded so many pop trifles during her long career that it's easy to forget what a hip and effervescent singer she could be when paired with the right material and collaborators. Cocktail Connie: Connie Francis Sings and Swings Lounge Classics rights that wrong, assembling 18 surprisingly fresh and sophisticated tracks recorded for MGM during the mid-'60s. A significant chunk of the compilation originates via 1968's Sings Bacharach and David - arranger Claus Ogerman's interpretations of songs like "Walk on By," "This Girl's in Love with You," and "Do You Know the Way to San Jose" augment the melodies' jazz-like intricacies to create subdued, richly textured settings that perfectly complement Francis' uncharacteristic vocal restraint, complete with nuanced orchestration worthy of Burt Bacharach himself…

At first, it sounds like the jazz soundtrack to either your favorite noir film or a Doris Day film from 1962. Then you realize that it isn't quite jazz at all but the orchestrated sound of six accomplished jazz musicians playing an eclectic mix of original songs and re-arranged iconic pop tunes that go back to the '50's that all sound unmistakably Chaise Lounge. On stage, the band looks as polished as it sounds. And the show, with Charlie Barnett and Marilyn Older's between song banter and the hysterical interplay between trombonist John Jensen and reedman, Gary Gregg is old-school, laugh out-loud entertainment. The grooves are soul deep.

Pleyel’s symphonies concertantes are characteristic expressions of his idiosyncratic style. They are expansive, leisurely-paced works, texturally transparent in their solo sections and rich in melodic invention. Always sensitive to instrumental colour, Pleyel uses his unusual forces to weave a scintillating web of sound in these remarkable works. The original and virtually unknown version of the Violin Concerto in D, composed in the early 1780s, is one of the earliest of Pleyel’s solo concertos but no less attractive and assured than its successors. This recording includes the original first and second movements together with a new finale composed by Pleyel several years later.

One of several excellent hard bop pianists from the Memphis area, Harold Mabern has led relatively few dates through the years, but he has always been respected by his contemporaries. He played in Chicago with MJT + 3 in the late '50s and then moved to New York in 1959. Mabern worked with Jimmy Forrest, Lionel Hampton, the Jazztet (1961-1962), Donald Byrd, Miles Davis (1963), J.J. Johnson (1963-1965), Sonny Rollins, Freddie Hubbard, Wes Montgomery, Joe Williams (1966-1967), and Sarah Vaughan. During 1968-1970, Mabern led four albums for Prestige, he was with Lee Morgan in the early '70s, and in 1972, he recorded with Stanley Cowell's Piano Choir.

These two splendid concertos by Stenhammar are offered together on one CD for the first time. The original orchestration of Stenhammar's first concerto was long thought to be lost when the offices of the publisher were bombed during the second world war. However, in 1983 a copy of the original was found in the Library of Congress and this version is featured here. The twenty-two year old's opus one is a masterpiece. Majestic and virtuosic at its opening, the work explores a world of Nordic mystery in the third movement and ends with music of sad, reflective sweetness. The second concerto is a distinctly different work, with a novel structure and a steady tension between soloist and orchestra that is only resolved in the virtuosic finale.

With Volume 48 of our groundbreaking Romantic Piano Concerto series we reach very uncharted territory indeed. Sir Julius Benedict has been all but forgotten today but he is yet another composer who gives the lie to the idea that Britain was ‘a land without music’ in the nineteenth century. Though born in Germany, Benedict settled in London in 1835, having already established a career as composer and pianist on the continent.
