Second album from band out of Oslo, Norway who play ominous, deep floor-rattling blues/rock songs with a 60s/70s twist and a heavy, clean production. The permeating resonance of Arnt Andersen’s vocals leads the dueling twin guitar leads by Petter Svee & Torgeir Waldemar Engen. The music is muscular & brawny; the riffs are passionate and classy; the sound is heavy, soulful and compelling.

Ultra-talented, Mel Tormé was one hell of a singer, he wrote hundreds of songs, acted in film and TV productions, wrote books and scripts, played piano and could handle a drum kit in a manner that made Gene Krupa smile! As all-encompassing as this compilation is, it can only provide a glimpse of the immense talent that was Mel Tormé, a performer of whom Bing Crosby once remarked: He s the most fantastic musical performer we ve ever had … the best musical entertainer I ve ever seen.
Tianwa Yang, JoAnn Falletta - Stravinsky: The Soldier's Tale (2016)

Genre: Classical | Label: Naxos | Catalog: 8.573537

Stravinsky's L'histoire du soldat, here The Soldier's Tale, is a work for narrator and small instrumental ensemble, ideally with dancers. The work was translated into English by Michael Flanders and Kitty Black; the "revised by Pamela Berlin" label here refers to some Americanisms inserted by Virginia Arts Festival director Pamela Berlin, and this American Soldier's Tale may be unique. The story comes from a little Faustian folktale of a soldier-at-war's-end, who accepts a bargain with the Devil, and the direct, at times doggerel-like rhymes of the text do well when given the directness of a translation into vernacular English.

Vocalist, songwriter, arranger and lyricist Valentina Marino brings the sensitivity, sophistication and earthiness of her Mediterranean roots to cutting edge jazz. "Her depth of feeling…touches the hearts of all who hear her…Valentina Marino's interpretation of Dorham's "Blue Bossa" with Lawson's lyric paints pictures of the flow of waters' life that transcend the notion of singing into a numinous expression of authentic artistry'' says Grammy nominee Janet Lawson. "A musician who loves to share the magic" - in the words of jazz vocalist Amy London; "Creative, spontaneous: a passionate vocalist with an enormous capacity to communicate with her audience"- Cameron Brown, bassist and band leader.

Label: Audiophile | Rel: 1980

Lee Wiley pioneered the "songbook" concept, for which a singer exclusively interpreted the work of one composer. Her Gershwin and Cole Porter projects of 1939-40 were major successes, as is the music on this Audiophile reissue. In a fairly straight but strangely sensuous manner, Wiley sings eight songs apiece by Rodgers & Hart and Harold Arlen while backed by a variety of all-star players associated with Eddie Condon, including pianist Joe Bushkin, trumpeters Max Kaminsky, Billy Butterfield and Bobb Hackett, tenor saxophonist Bud Freeman, and Ernie Caceres on baritone and clarinet. Although many of these songs have been interpreted countless times since, few singers have reached the emotional peaks that Lee Wiley scaled in her versions of "A Ship Without a Sail," "Let's Fall In Love," "I've Got the World On a String," "Down With Love" and especially "Glad to Be Unhappy." This set (along with the previous one) belongs in every serious jazz collection.
