Goliat, De Tom Gauld
Ed. Sinsentido, 2012 | Spanish | CBR | 94 pages | 116 MB

Con un lenguaje directo, y lleno de un humor inteligente, Tom Gauld, firma esta reinterpretación del mito de David y Goliat, narrada desde la perspectiva de este último. La historia de David y Goliat ha representado a la largo de los siglos un ejemplo de perseverancia, de cómo el más débil le gana la batalla a quién está, aparentemente, en superioridad de condiciones. Pero esta vez, no será David el héroe de esta historia. La batalla de Goliat es a la vez trágica y tristemente graciosa, y en esta obra en particular, está contada con un ingenio sensible y revolucionario.

On croyait tout savoir de la légende biblique de David et Goliath. Symbole de la victoire du faible contre le fort, de l’intelligence contre la force, ce duel à l’issue inattendue est l’un des mythes les plus connus, qui a déjà inspiré quantité de peintres et de poètes. Pourtant Tom Gauld, qui avec ce magnifique ouvrage en bichromie, riche et plein de tension, faussement minimaliste, entre enfin dans le catalogue de L’Association, renouvelle le mythe et en donne une version surprenante et émouvante…

Genre: Jazz, Fusion | Label: GRP Records | Catalog: GRD-9571

With the exception of 1992's Born Again, saxophonist Tom Scott's output for GRP was consistently disappointing. Although obviously a talented player, Scott's willingness to play arrangements whose main goal was to gain radio airplay resulted in commercial and quickly dated music. Scott is heard with smaller groups throughout this 1988 effort, which include keyboardist Randy Kerber and guitarist Dean Parks, plus guest appearances by guitarists Eric Gale and Michael Landau; all this looks promising but is actually quite routine. None of the nine funky originals were infectious enough to catch on; Scott sounds fairly anonymous in spots, particularly when he utilizes a WX-7; and it is obvious that the music was made strictly for the money. At best, this is superior background music

Genre: Jazz | Label: GRP | Catalog: GRD-9646

A shamelessly contrived effort, Keep This Love Alive is, for the most part, yet another tremendous waste of Tom Scott's talents. There are a few enjoyable moments here, including guest Dianne Schurr's sensuous vocal on "Whenever You Dream of Me" and Scott's gritty jazz-funk blowing on "Mis Thang." But on the whole, this CD is a throwaway by both jazz and pop standards. R&B/pop singer Brenda Russell is anything but memorable on the bloodless adult-contemporary song "If You're Not the One for Me," and most of the instrumentals would sound boring and lackluster even in a dentist's office. Throwing creativity to the wind, Scott leaves no doubt that his only concern is commercial radio airplay. The saxman recorded more than his share of stinkers for GRP in the 1980s and '90s, and Keep This Love Alive is at the top of the list.

EAC | FLAC (tracks+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 45:20 | 341 MB
Genre: Jazz, Smooth Jazz | Label: GRP Records | Catalog: GRP 96752

After many years of recording one commercial effort after another, Tom Scott finally recorded a strong jazz set. By using Born Again as the CD's title, Scott sought to demonstrate that he was returning to his roots; unfortunately, this promising direction would only be a one-shot deal. Scott, who was always a strong musician, shows that he had not forgotten how to improvise despite all of his commercial work. He is heard on tenor, alto, and soprano performing seven mostly straight-ahead originals and Wayne Shorter's "Children of the Night."

Jack Ryan è un professore di storia da poco congedato dai Marines e trasferitosi in Inghilterra per scrivere un libro. Dopo una serie di pericolosi incontri con una cellula dell'IRA, Ryan viene notato dai vertici della CIA e dei servizi britannici e ingaggiato per una collaborazione. Ben presto, però, si rende conto che da lui ci si attende qualcosa di più: sventare, per esempio, un complotto organizzato dai vertici del Cremlino per eliminare papa Giovanni Paolo II.
