Recorded live at the MUSA in Göttingen/Germany, 20th October 2005
Following two studio recordings, this impressive band hit the road and cut this session with keyboardist George Duke. Their encounter provided for an uneven, but infectious, recording. "Hip Pockets," composed by Cobham, and "Ivory Tattoo," composed by Scofield, begin the session with some intense playing. Things get a bit goofy with "Space Lady" (a song which probably worked better live), and a bit melodramatic with "Almustafa the Beloved."
Five CD set containing a quintet of albums by the Swedish rockers housed in mini LP sleeves and packaged in a slipcase. Contains the albums Europe, Wings Of Tomorrow, The Final Countdown, Out Of This World, and Prisoners In Paradise.
A band featuring four veteran heavy-hitters of British and American hard rock, Black Country Communion are rooted in an alliance between bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple) and blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa. At the suggestion of engineer and producer Kevin Shirley, journeyman drummer Jason Bonham and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) were invited to join, and both obliged. Collection includes: Black Country Communion (2010); Black Country Communion 2 (2011); Live Over Europe (2012); Afterglow (2012).
Although best known from their days in Whitesnake, Bernie Marsden & Micky Moody prove here that good old fashioned blues/rock is far from dead. This album was a taster for their new studio album also being released on Talking Elephant. Here we see the band rocking the stage with classic Whitesnake numbers. Fronted by Johnny Lande Norwegian hard rock and heavy metal singer. Known for being the former vocalist of bands Ark, Beyond Twilight, Millenium, Vagabond, The Snakes, and most notably of power metal band Masterplan, as well as for his solo career as Jorn.
3-disc box set includes 2 dates at the Olympia Theatre on March 21, 1960 (disc 1 & 2) and October 11th of the same year (disc 3). Accompanying players on the former date include John Coltrane on tenor sax, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Sonny Stitt alternates with Coltrane on sax on "Autumn Leaves", "No Blues" and "Fran Dance" on disc 2. Also, on disc 3, Stitt replaces Coltrane. At the end of the disc they've tacked on a half-hour medley jam from 1973 with a different line-up again.
The highly anticipated live album from the band on tour in Europe. Hear originals and their favorite cover songs recorded live in The Netherlands and Poland. Seeing the band live is a much different experience than listening to one of the albums. Here we get to stretch out and improvise, and also deliver our versions of some of our favorite songs in the blues rock cannon. Recorded live in Vriezenveen, NL, Kielce and Rzeszov, PL.
This 1970 club date in a Munich club by Art Farmer wasn't released until 1998, but it is by no means a collection of outtakes; it was in the possession of the club owner as his own private treasure. The flügelhornist (though he is inexplicably credited playing trumpet on the CD) is joined by his pianist of choice while in Europe, Fritz Pauer, along with bassist Peter Marshall and drummer Erich Bachtragl. Both Farmer and Pauer deliver consistently outstanding solos throughout the set, and what's unusual is that all of the tracks are originals by the leader. "Concord" and "Concourse" are both up-tempo cookers, while Marshall's fine solo introduces the bluesy "Overnight." While the piano is slightly buried in the mix, this otherwise excellent recording is very much a worthwhile investment for fans of hard bop.
