Anthony Jambon Group is a project bringing together five talented young musicians and friends, led by its leader, Anthony Jambon. This guitarist with multiple influences offers in his first album an eclectic music, turns energetic and tender, of a simple beauty, accessible to all. "Precious Time" sounds like a parenthesis, a moment suspended where one takes the time to live. This disc is composed of 8 long pieces of palpable energy, each with its own history. The music fuses, combining precision of writing, rhythmic complexity, beaches of improvisation and transcendental melodies. With their first album, this welded and virtuoso group invites us to travel in this space-time filled with an extraordinary emotion and sensitivity.

The Group released one album in 1978 and later evolved to the Pekka Pohjola Group.
Double digipak CD. The 2nd disc features an extended studio session with the Sibelius academy orchestra plus two studio outtakes from the original album.
Highly influenced by Weather Report and the jazz fusion scene of the 70s, The Group was set up after Pekka Pohjola and Vesa Aaltonen came back to Finland from Sweden. They both played in the Swedish prog/jazz rock band Made in Sweden. As The Group’s guitarist Seppo Tyni remembers, Aaltonen came back to Finland in early 1977 and Pohjola later in the summer…

John Renbourn - The Lady And The Unicorn (1970). The Lady and the Unicorn is the 1970 solo album by British folk musician John Renbourn. Featuring Terry Cox playing hand drums and glockenspiel, with future John Renbourn band member Tony Roberts and violinist Dave Swarbrick. The repertory consists of medieval and early classical pieces, interspersed with the expected folk material - keyboard works from the Fitzwilliam virginal book (transcribed for guitar) stand alongside traditional tunes such as "Scarborough Fair," which turns up as part of an 11-minute track that also incorporates "My Johnny Was a Shoemaker," with Swarbrick at the top of his form on violin. The album is entirely instrumental, but as with other Renbourn releases, one hardly misses the vocals…

The European recordings by a jazzmen who played a crucial role in the transition from Swing to Bop. Only master takes. One of the greatest of all tenor players, Don Byas' decision to move permanently to Europe in 1946 resulted in him being vastly underrated in jazz history books. His knowledge of chords rivalled Coleman Hawkins, and, due to their similarity in tones, Byas can be considered an extension of the elder tenor. He played with many top swing bands, including those of Lionel Hampton (1935), Buck Clayton (1936), Don Redman, Lucky Millinder, Andy Kirk (1939-1940), and most importantly Count Basie (1941-1943).

Benny Goodman took some stylistic chances during his 11-year tenure with Capitol. He listened closely to, then flirted with, bebop during this time, not altering his own swing-based playing but inserting it into a bop framework. He also played traditional swing in various small groups. The sessions covered on this most recent Mosaic four-disc (six-album) set were originally issued on a number of 10" and 12" albums, as well as the CDs BG in Hi Fi and The Benny Goodman Story, a Japanese issue.

After 20 years of exploring free, collective improvisation with his former group, Liebman embarks on a brilliant new adventure, with a new generation of talented musicians eager, like their bandleader, to alter the language of jazz. His influences Monk and Miles endure, with unpredictable rhythms and harmonic devices, especially on excursions like the funky Liberian Hummingbird and the uniquely re-harmonized Level One. Samsara recycles and re-orders the twelve pitches of Western music several times in tempo, key and rhythm over a colorful canvas.
