Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Austin's one and only album as leader. If you like crooners, then he can croon with best. The only album we've ever seen from vocalist Austin Cromer – a deep-voiced jazz singer with a style that's somewhere in the best space between Billy Eckstine and Arthur Prysock! Cromer's a lot more relaxed and less posturing than either of those bigger names – and he's got a great setting here, with small combo backing from a group that features Hubert Laws on flute, Chick Corea on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Bruno Carr on drums! The set's a jazz one at heart, but has some soulful undercurrents too.

Genre: Vocal Jazz, Soul

Street of Dreams was designed as a project for Patti Austin to sing her favorite songs, regardless of genre. True, there are a couple of later songs here, usually including two co-written by Vaneese Thomas, but the heart of the album is in interpretations of "The Look of Love," "Street of Dreams," "Someone to Watch Over Me," "'Till There Was You," "I Only Have Eyes for You," "For Once in My Life," and "IGY (What a Beautiful World)." Although the arrangements can get a little too clean and synthesized (much of the album sounds as if it was recorded with DX-7s), Austin is in terrific form throughout, breathing life into songs that have been recorded numerous times. It's a fine latter-day effort from a fine singer.

D. T. Max - Ogni storia d'amore è una storia di fantasmi. Vita di David Foster Wallace
Italian | Einaudi | 2013 | ISBN: 8806214624 | 505 pages | EPUB | 1 MB

A cinque anni dalla morte, David Foster Wallace rimane una figura centrale della cultura contemporanea per la capacità di raccontarne i nodi irrisolti e le ambizioni, i sogni e gli incubi. Raccontarli, certo, ma anche incarnarli in una vita intensa, percorsa e scossa dall'esaltazione creativa quanto dai fantasmi della depressione e della solitudine. Attingendo ai materiali conservati presso l'università di Austin e a testimonianze dirette di amici, parenti e colleghi scrittori, D. T. Max ricostruisce il percorso intellettuale e umano di DFW, i rapporti con i padri letterari, la vicenda clinica e la dimensione pubblica. Guidato dalla volontà di capire e analizzare le radici, le ragioni, i meccanismi di una mente geniale e complessa, fragile e dolce.

Funk / Austin Funk / Soul / Jazz Soul

In a world, where the funk grows weaker with every passing year, it musters the last of its strength to send out the "vibe”. This vibe scours light years in search of a host, for the funk can not thrive on its own. Losing hope, the funk falls to earth in its last attempt to find sanctuary with the last ounce of its power. The vibe in released for the final time. But this time something extraordinary happens, the vibe falls on the conscience of 11 celestial beings in Austin, Texas. Not knowing what pulls them, these beings aimlessly journey to the funk's resting place.

EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 230 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 102 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Crossover Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Jazz-Funk | Label: Warner Bros. | # WPCR-28022 | Time: 00:29:47

This 1981 recording is an excellent example of David Sanborn's music. The highly influential altoist is joined by familiar studio veterans (including guitarist Hiram Bullock and drummer Steve Gadd) with bassist/composer Marcus Miller being a key figure in creating the funky rhythms and colorful backgrounds. Miller, who shared the writing chores with Sanborn, not only contributed his powerful bass, but backed the altoist during a duet version of "Just for You" on piano. Easily recommended to fans of R&B-ish jazz.

Genre: Crossover Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Fusion | Label: Warner Music Japan | # WPCR-27412 | Time: 00:40:17

This album is one of David Sanborn's better early recordings. Although the record is perhaps best known for the altoist's version of Paul Simon's "I Do It For Your Love," Sanborn's playing on some of the other cuts (most notably "Mamacita" and "7th Avenue") finds him really stretching within the R&B/crossover genre. Only "Smile" (which has some mundane vocalizing) is a minus, and it is more than compensated for by Sanborn's passionate improvising elsewhere.
