Adding politically charged spoken-word lyrics to instrumental jazz needs to be done with care, because if sloganeering is tedious to listen to once, it becomes unbearable on repeated exposure. The record containing it drops off one's playlist. Counterproductive or what? The British saxophonist and rapper Soweto Kinch, however, has pulled the trick off many times. From Conversations With The Unseen (Dune, 2003) through to The Black Peril (Soweto Kinch Recordings, 2019), Kinch has made the combination work because of the poetic rather than agitprop nature of his words and also because he does not overload his music with them, letting his saxophone do much of the talking.

Classical and Spanish guitar virtuoso Julian Bream was probably the only instrumentalist of his generation to match the extraordinary talent of his contemporary John Williams among the artists who popularised the music, as well as exploring the potential of the lute in interpreting historical works for that much-ignored instrument. Inspired by jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, he proved something of a child prodigy, studying at the Royal College of Music, and made his concert debut in 1947 at the age of 13. This 58-track 3-CD collection comprises the complete contents of five of his early albums, “Spanish Guitar Music Vol 1”, “Spanish Guitar Music Vol. 2”, “A Bach Recital For The Guitar”, and “Julian Bream Plays Dowland”, on which he plays the lute, for the Westminster label and “The Art Of Julian Bream” for RCA. These include pieces played on the guitar composed by Fernando Sor, Joaquin Turina, Manuel de Falla, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Federico Moreno Torroba, J. S. Bach, Girolamo Frescobald, Mateo Albéniz, Domenico Scarlatti, Domenico Cimarosa, Domenico Cimarosa, Lennox Berkeley, Joaquín Rodrigo, Maurice Ravel, Albert Roussel, and lute compositions by John Dowland. All recorded between 1956 and 1959, they demonstrate his highly-developed talent and expertise from the earliest days of his recording career.

Genre: Classical / Label: Ars Produktion

One can hardly imagine a more heart-warming sound than the soft voice of a cello accompanied by the sweet tones of a Spanish guitar.In fact, these two instruments combine in such an amorous way that Nicole Pena Comas and Damien Lancelle decided they required a whole album to express the different facets of love: passionate, tender or playful, the burning desire of new lovers and the selfless care for friends and family. Masterpieces by great composers such as Tchaikovsky, Liszt or Schumann as well as gems by forgotten names such as August Nolck or Amy Beach, all express love and closeness and were selected and arranged for cello and guitar for that very reason.

Genre: Classical / Label: Piano Classics

Cor de Groot (July 7, 1914 – May 26, 1993) was a Dutch pianist and composer. Born in Amsterdam, he studied piano with Egbert Veen and Ulferts Schults, and composition and conducting with Sem Dresden. In 1932 he graduated with highest honors, playing a piano concerto written by himself. After becoming a soloist with the Concertgebouw Orchestra he embarked on a highly successful international career. If some (though not yet all) of his recordings as a pianist have received modern reissues on CD, his own compositions have received comparatively little attention. An early Sonatina pokes fun at serial technique, before an Old Holland Suite deftly sketches a sequence of 11 Dutch landscapes and portraits. A sequence of five Homenajes documents his fondness for Spain, played here by its dedicatee Jacob Bogaart.
