Van Morrison never stopped recording during the 1990s, but for a little while it seemed as if he was disconnected from his muse. It wasn't so much his series of jazz cover albums – he'd return to this vein often in subsequent decades – but his songwriting that showed signs bitterness, particularly on 1995's Days Like This, where he seemed dismissive of the very notion of being a songwriter. In that light, it's hard not to see 1997's The Healing Game as a rejuvenation. Indeed, the album's very title suggests that Morrison is in the process of mending fences and reconnecting with a sense of joy, a process that began during his deep dive into Mose Allison and other bluesy jazz artists in the mid-'90s. Morrison retains that sense of swing on The Healing Game – he also retains keyboardist Georgie Fame, who would become a fixture on Morrison's albums over the next two decades – and it invigorates a set of songs that aren't necessarily all that different from what he's been writing as of late; he's still specializing in ballads, blues, and folk-rock colored by R&B.

In September 2004 Natasha Bedingfield debuted smashingly in the United Kingdom. Her first record, Unwritten, went to number one almost immediately and the glowing response established her as an instant pop star. Her ascent mirrored the sudden popularity of brother Daniel Bedingfield in 2001, when his bedroom production "Gotta Get Through This" rocketed similarly up the charts. For Natasha, it's "Single" and the near-perfect "These Words (I Love You, I Love You)" – tracks that merge the rhythms and flavors of hip-hop and R&B with unique melodies and Bedingfield's vocal confidence – "Single," for example, suggests Kelly Clarkson's 2003 single "Miss Independent."

The Civil Rights Movement was a principal fight during the turbulent 1960s. In turn, many artists took up the mantle of progress and/or revolution. Three of the most righteous voices in jazz music were vocalist Abbey Lincoln, drummer/composer Max Roach, and composer/lyricist Oscar Brown, Jr. Their defiant music on We Insist!: The Freedom Now Suite and Percussion Bitter Sweet remains as poignant and topical today as it was upon release.
Vocalist Christine Correa was introduced to the music of these three icons by her mentor Ran Blake upon her arrival from Mumbai, India. The music had visceral effect on her that has remained to this day, especially as the parallels of the Civil Rights and the Black Lives Matter movements have become more and more focused. Correa’s new recording, Just You Stand and Listen with Me, revisits the powerful music of Lincoln, Roach, and Brown to remind listeners that their struggles are still very much alive.

"Songs of Future Memories (1982-2022)" ist die längst überfällige zweite Anthologie der schwedischen Pioniere der elektronischen Musik, TWICE A MAN. Auf drei CDs wurden die besten Tracks aus 14 Song-Alben gesammelt und sorgfältig remastert. Die 7 Instrumentalwerke des Bandkatalogs wurden bei diesem Projekt bewusst ausgeklammert, das als umfassender musikalischer Führer durch die herausragende Karriere der Band dienen kann. “Songs Of Future Memories” erfasst somit 4(!) Jahrzehnte der bahnbrechenden Werke von Twice A Man. Neben den bereits bekannten Stücken hat die Band auch mit "Lotus" und "Dahlia" zwei neue Tracks hinzugefügt, und das dazugehörige 72-Seitige Artwork selbst designed.

Arriva il primo album di una delle artiste più richieste del panorama urban italiano.
Un annuncio, quello del disco d’esordio di Rose Villain (in uscita per Columbia Records/Sony Music Italy), che ci investe con tutta l’imprevedibilità della musica quando accendi una Radio. Come quando ti innamori ‘a prima vista’ di una canzone che non conoscevi mentre la ascolti in macchina, d’improvviso. E se poi quella macchina stesse vagando nella notte per le strade di Gotham City, che sapore mistico avrebbe quella scoperta?

HIGH PRIESTESS' compositions dig deeper and deeper into «the dissection and questioning of self and mental health with a painful but gentle musical knife», to reveal an artist in constant evolution. It's a «thermonuclear» album, Sarah says, with deep, bubbling bass, synths, beats, dark piano and, of course, her ever-haunting vocal incantation that challenges the so-called certainties of reality and gives post-apocalyptic textures to the whole. Includes a poem dedicated to Sarah's mentor, Chilly Gonzales.

Maurice Starr's vision peaked with this second album by New Edition. They were now thoroughly Jackson 5 clones and were reaping similar commercial dividends thanks to the teen angst cuts "Cool It Now" and "Mr. Telephone Man." They earned their first platinum album, one Top Ten hit and another Top 20 pop single (both songs topped the R&B charts) and were among the hottest acts in either pop or R&B during this stretch.

Ultimate Collection Review by Jose F. Promis
Creating a single-disc Ultimate Collection for a superstar like Liza Minnelli is a daunting task because to call any single-disc collection on this artist "ultimate" is misleading at best. There are way too many omissions, and pleasing the die-hard fans of the singer/actress with a single-disc set is close to impossible. That said, this collection will most likely please the casual and the curious. However, the folks at Hip-O succeed in assembling material from different eras and labels associated with Liza's career (and certainly provide informative liner notes), including a youthful and sweet "Try to Remember," which opens the album, and the wonderful 1989 Pet Shop Boys-produced dance hit "Losing My Mind," the album closer. Highlights in between include the rare "Come Saturday Morning" and "Simon," available for the first time on CD. Check out her smoldering versions of "The Look of Love," "MacArthur Park/Didn't We," "Come Rain or Come Shine," and "The Man I Love," the countrified signature hit "Maybe This Time," her electric, sassy rendition of "Love for Sale," and the amazing wallop of "The Singer." But why not a studio or film version of "Cabaret"? And the omissions – "Stepping Out," "A Quiet Thing," "A Matter of Time," nothing from Tropical Nights or Gently – all of this only illustrates that a two-disc set (at least) is needed to accurately represent Liza Minnelli's recording career.

The Cookies were an American R&B girl group active in two distinct lineups, the first from 1954 to 1958 which later became The Raelettes, and the second from 1961 to 1967. Several of the members of both lineups were members of the same family. Both lineups were most prominent as session singers and backing vocalists.

So this is where we find our hero in 2003. Dropped from his major label and absent his trademark flowing golden locks, Vintage presents his fans with yet another set of standout ballads and standards done only the way the Bolton can. Kicking out the jams early on with "The Very Thought of You," the tone is set right away for the album as a perfect musical accompaniment to a romantic dinner. The smooth, sultry tone is brought to a rousing climax with his re-interpretation of Etta James' classic "At Last." The fun continues onward with "Daddy's Little Girl," which was featured prominently in an ad campaign. Vintage closes with the potent but loaded question of "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?," a stunning finish to an album sure to appease even the most loyal of his fans.

Elemental is the fourth studio album by the British pop band Tears for Fears. It was released on 7 June 1993 and includes the hit single "Break It Down Again". The album peaked at No. 5 in the UK and No. 45 in the US. It also reached the Top 10 in France and Italy, the Top 20 in Canada and the Top 30 in several European countries. It has been certified Silver in the UK, and Gold in the US and France. Elemental was the first new Tears for Fears album in four years, following 1989's The Seeds of Love. However, despite being released under the Tears for Fears moniker, it is essentially a solo effort by Roland Orzabal as Curt Smith had left the band in 1991. For much of the writing and recording, Orzabal was assisted by Alan Griffiths, who had been a session musician for Tears For Fears' world tour in 1985. The album was recorded at Orzabal's newly built home studio, Neptune's Kitchen, and was co-produced by Orzabal, Griffiths and Tim Palmer.

The Latin pop and rock en español fields are full of talented artists who would probably be huge in the English-language market if they didn't sing in Spanish exclusively. Some non-Spanish-speaking listeners don't mind listening to lyrics they don't understand – the beat and the melody are enough for them – but many others insist on understanding every word that is coming out of an artist's mouth. Thus, Latin stars usually don't cross over to English-speaking audiences until they start singing in English, which is what Shakira does on 2001's Laundry Service. "Whenever, Wherever," this album's infectious lead single, is to Shakira what "Livin' la Vida Loca" was to Ricky Martin: the major hit that brought her to English-speaking audiences in a big way.

Collection includes: Pump Up The Jam (1989); Body To Body (1991); The Best Remixes (1991); Recall (1995). Of the many studio-based dance music projects that dominated the charts during the early '90s, few were so popular, or such an improbable success story, as Technotronic. Emerging from Belgium, the multicultural group helped push the deep bass grooves and insistent beats of house music out of the club scene and into the pop mainstream; ironically, they did so largely by hiding behind the photogenic visage of an African-born fashion model who, it was later revealed, did not even perform on their records. In reality, Technotronic was the brainchild of Jo Bogaert (real name Thomas de Quincy), an American-born philosophy teacher who relocated to Belgium in the late '80s in the hopes of mounting a career as a record producer. Bogaert's intent was to fuse house with hip-hop, and toward that aim he sent demos of his work to a variety of rappers, including the Welsh-born MC Eric and a Zairean-born teenager named Ya Kid K (aka Manuela Kamosi), at the time a member of the Belgian rap group Fresh Beat Productions.
