Microphone Music is a 2003 double CD compilation by The Raymond Scott Quintette. It is "a collection of unreleased titles, radio performances, first-rate rehearsals and forgotten gems by the Raymond Scott Quintette recorded between 1936 and 1939." (The size of each version are correct, due to this being a mono CD and what it results in when converted to each format.)

Raymond Fol's jazz arrangement of Antonio Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" may have fallen into obscurity, but the French pianist's big band scoring of this classical favorite shows plenty of imagination. With a band of his fellow countrymen, along with expatriate Americans Johnny Griffin (tenor sax), bassist Jimmy Woode, and drummer Art Taylor, he casts a variety of moods, even within individual sections. In the first movement of "Le Printemps (The Spring)" he chooses an Afro-Cuban mood, while the second shifts to a smaller chamber jazz setting, showcasing guitarist Pierre Cullaz, vibraphonist Sadi, and the leader in turn.

Australian six-piece Fairchild are set to continue their string of 1980s musical praises with the release of trailblazing new single ‘Relevance’ – an intoxicating pastiche of new wave and dance rock bombast, masterfully captured and repolished to a 21st century sheen by producer/mixer Catherine Marks (Foals, The Killers, Wolf Alice). Interlacing austere guitar riffs with murky synths and an uncharacteristic tenor croon from singer Adam Lyons, ‘Relevance’ revs its engines and spins its wheels before leaving the listener in a haze of scorching rubber and desert dust. Adam Lyons states, “In the studio I remember thinking ‘how I sing on [Relevance] is much more important than the words coming out of my mouth.’ The instrumental had no discernible chord changes in the verses and I knew my vocal needed to act as a linchpin to hold the track together.

Widely recognized for his jazz-age melodies heard in classic Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck cartoons, Scott was also an electronic music pioneer and instrument inventor.

Mark Kuykendall and Bobby Hicks are bluegrass veterans who have a combined 110 years of professional experience between the two of them. By the age of 14, Kuykendall had already played on the world famous Grand Ole Opry and had performed and recorded with many of his Western North Carolina heroes, including Raymond Fairchild, Ralph Lewis, Marc Pruett and others. He went on to work with the King of Bluegrass, Jimmy Martin, and the Father of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe. Hicks is a legendary bluegrass fiddler who began his career with Monroe in 1954.

Genius can be defined in a number of ways. One such definition is to be the right person in the right place at the right time; another is to have the capacity to move your audience to tears. Monteverdi meets both these criteria with flying colours. His professed ambition was to "move the passions of the soul," thereby drawing tears from his audience, and he achieved this with greater efficacy than any of his contemporaries. The use of the word "madrigal" on the title pages of his eight collections (and a posthumous Ninth Book from 1651) is therefore deceptive, concealing radical stylistic changes which brilliantly reflect the turbulent, exciting times in which he lived.

Back another two centuries, to 1640 and a late masterpiece by the first great figure in opera history: Claudio Monteverdi and his Il ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria – “The Return of Ulysses to his Homeland”. Raymond Leppard conducted a production at Glyndebourne in the early 1970s, based on his own edition of the textually problematic work – there are gaps in the only surviving score. Revived in 1979, the production – which has gone down in the annals of opera legend – was recorded by CBS. Gramophone’s reviewer declared the performance “gloriously vivid in humanity and splendour.

Raymond Leppard's recording . . . has remained for me the benchmark against which other recordings are measured . . . Janet Baker sings brilliantly as Ariodante. She flies through the coloratura with ease and presents a complete portrayal of the title character . . . Edith Mathis is a strong Ginevra, beautifully sung. We easily believe that she has the strength to resist Polinesso but is vulnerable enough to despair at the unjust accusations leveled against her . . . And with Samuel Ramey in his prime we have an excellent King of Scotland. (Ron Salemi, Fanfare)

I’ve loved each record that I’ve ever made, but Buffalo is particularly close to my heart. It’s the first record of mine that I’ve co-produced, and it is the first record that I’ve ever done that was funded solely by my fans and friends which is truly why I have named the record Buffalo. It symbolizes abundance, strength, survival, power, and above all- gratitude. I know this album is truly a reflection of everyone I’ve known and everything I’ve done up to this point in my life. And I’m so very grateful for all of it and everyone who helped me make this record.
