The English, historical-instrument, Baroque ensemble La Serenissima (the term was a nickname for the city of Venice) has specialized in somewhat scholarly recordings that nevertheless retain considerable general appeal, and the group does it again with this release. The program offers some lesser-known composers, and some lesser-known pieces by famous composers like the tiny and fascinating Concerto alla rustica for two oboes, bassoon, strings, and continuo, RV 151. What ties the program together formally is that it covers a range of Italian cities that were becoming cultural centers as they declined in political power: not only Venice (Vivaldi, Albinoni, Caldara), but also Padua (Tartini), Bologna (Torelli), and Rome (Corelli). There are several works by composers known only for one or two big hits, and these are especially rewarding. Sample the opening movement of Tartini's Violin Concerto E major, DS 51, with its unusual phrase construction and daringly chromatic cadenza passage: it has the exotic quality for which Tartini became famous, but it does not rely on sheer virtuosity. That work is played by leader Adrian Chandler himself, but he also chooses pieces for a large variety of other solo instruments: the Italian Baroque was about more than the violin. Each work on the album has something to recommend it, and collectively the performances may make up the best album of 2017 whose booklet includes footnotes.

Adrian Younge is a prolific composer whose brassy, ‘70s-centric arrangements recall the work of soul music legends Isaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfield, and often emulate the soundtracks of blaxploitation movies like Shaft and Super Fly. He’s also a willing collaborator who’s produced music for everyone from Ghostface Killah and the Delfonics to Bilal and PRhyme. Younge’s music was also featured in popular Netflix series Luke Cage and the 2009 film Black Dynamite, a comedy classic starring actor Michael Jai White. Though Younge is clearly the primary voice behind all of his work, he tweaks his sound to suit each artist he pulls into his orbit.

La Terre est au plus mal… Ses derniers habitants n'ont plus qu'un seul espoir : coloniser le "Monde de Kern", une planète lointaine, spécialement terraformée pour l'espèce humaine. Mais sur ce " monde vert " paradisiaque, tout ne s'est pas déroulé comme les scientifiques s'y attendaient. Une autre espèce s'est parfaitement adaptée à ce nouvel environnement et elle n'a pas du tout l'intention de laisser sa place. Le choc de deux civilisations aussi différentes que possible est donc inévitable. Qui seront donc les héritiers de l'ancienne Terre ? Qui sortira vainqueur du piège tendu par la toile du temps ?

«Questo libro narra la storia leggendaria di come una piccola, meravigliosa e complicata specie, nata su un puntino di roccia e acqua, intorno a una normalissima stella tra centinaia di miliardi di altre stelle, in una galassia tra centinaia di miliardi di altre galassie nell'universo, abbia alzato lo sguardo oltre l'orizzonte e abbia deciso di partire per scoprire ciò che aveva intorno. Senza pensare ai mille pericoli che avrebbe incontrato, senza avere idea di quali sfide avrebbe dovuto affrontare, ma con il cuore pieno di curiosità, passione, ingegno e tanto coraggio. Questa specie siamo noi umani (lo so, non è esattamente il colpo di scena del secolo!). In A piedi nudi su Marte vi accompagnerò alla scoperta della storia dell'esplorazione spaziale del Sistema solare e, in particolare, del Sole e dei pianeti rocciosi, partendo dalla nostra Terra.». Adrian Fartade ha conquistato il pubblico del web con la sua passione contagiosa per l'astronomia..

A composer who writes songs arguably allows us into a very personal side of his or her character. An instrumental composition gives us access to a composer's imagination and invention as far as the composer chooses to let us see, but a song shows a composer's highly personal response to a text – we hear how the composer reacts to another facet of creativity. We are not confined to the composer's own thoughts, and the best songs take us into a composer's creative mind. Scott's compositional style reflected the colour and richness of his ideas.

This is the second album of the trio Adrian Clarck that we have in our hands. A trio composed of Damien Argentieri, primarily on the Hammond organ (Nord C2 for purist connoisseurs who will accept the modernization) or Fender Rhodes, Sandrine Conry singing, and David Pouradier Duteil, the one who makes his battery speak. This one, we find it alongside Robyn Bennet, even with Malicorne, so on very varied directories. So note that there is no Adrian Clarck in this trio. Note above all this ability very determined to impose a color dominated by the famous Hammond sound. It is he who will preside, subtly associated with the very free and powerful song of Sandrine, a series of titles combining covers and original compositions.

Toronto singer/songwriter Adrian Underhill makes sweet songs you’re inclined to sing along to. With an almost timid tenderness, he floats on top of melodies instead of plunging into them, imploring the listener to fill in the empty space. Go ahead and give it a go; his lyrics are so delicate, raw, and confessional (“Weather,” “Not Good Enough”) that you’ll feel like a friend wrote them. Support from Adam Bainbridge, a.k.a. Kindness, and Brandon Coleman (keyboardist/drummer for Kamasi Washington) lift this album from lovely to excellent.
