This work is the third volume of a collection dedicated to the figure of the Arranger, in this case to the Swedish saxophonist and clarinetist Fredrik Carlquist, resident in Catalonia for several years and with whom I have had the pleasure of recording on several of his CDs. This album is also a tribute to the Swedish musician Lars Gullin, one of my favorite baritone saxophonists who has influenced my playing, as have Serge Chaloff, Scott Robinson, Pepper Adams, Gerry Mulligan, Cecil Payne and a long list of great jazz musicians who dedicated their lives to this beautiful instrument.

After recording four albums for Impulse in 1967, the distinctive guitarist Gabor Szabo cut three records for the Skye label in 1968, of which this LP, Bacchanal, is the strongest. Szabo's regular group of the era is heard on record for the last time: guitarist Jimmy Stewart, bassist Louis Kabok, drummer Jim Keltner and percussionist Hal Gordon. With the exception of two Szabo originals, the material is comprised of current pop tunes including two songs by Donovan, "Love Is Blue," "The Look of Love" and "Theme from the Valley of the Dolls." Despite what should have been a complete lack of potential, the Hungarian guitarist uplifts the material and mostly turns the pieces into worthwhile jazz.

Too few are those who will have been able to rise to the height of this statuary monument during their lifetime, only remaining on the surface when this multifaceted personality invites a much more complex reading. It is this Himalayas that Louise Jallu dared to climb. Far from sinking into the pale copy, Louise Jallu adds her comments, notably opening up spaces suitable for improvisation, even if it means taking the bias of a certain irreverence to show all the better all her deference to the Argentinean . History of sticking to the singular post-modernity that inhabited his work. As obvious.

Toscanini regarded this orchestration of Pictures at an Exhibition as a genuine treatise on instrumentation, on a par with that of Berlioz: scored for the same instrumental forces as La Valse, Ravel’s version quickly established itself ahead of all the many competing orchestrations of Mussorgsky’s piano suite! In François-Xavier Roth’s view, La Valse and the Pictures together represent the peak of the composer’s output for the symphony orchestra of his time – that is to say, as the musicians of Les Siècles reconstruct it for us today. What a joy to get back to the original colours of this music!

This recording of the Poème Harmonique revitalizes Charpentier's and Lully's Te deum, two magnificent pieces of sacred music celebrating the Sun King's victory and recovery. Lully, who was of Italian origin, found the essence and style of French art, while Charpentier gave the emotion and composition methods he had learned from the Italians to the music of his country. This is the story of two musicians, two countries, two aesthetics, and two fundamental stakes. Lully became a lauded composer, outshining Charpentier and relegating him to an undeserved subpar position.

A popular skatepunk group based out of Berlin, Germany, ZSK's hard-hitting blend of political, hardcore, and hook-driven punk rock invokes names like Die Toten Hosen, Bad Religion, and Rise Against. Founded in 1997, ZSK were one of the leading lights of the German political punk scene during the late '90s and early aughts, releasing a string of fiery singles and a trio of well-received albums before calling it quits in 2007. They returned to the stage in 2011, and two years later released their long-awaited fourth studio album, Herz für die Sache, via People Like You Records. Live für die Sache, a CD/DVD concert LP, followed in 2016.

Universally hailed as the king of the blues, the legendary B.B. King was without a doubt the single most important electric guitarist of the last half of the 20th century. His bent notes and staccato picking style influenced legions of contemporary bluesmen, while his gritty and confident voice – capable of wringing every nuance from any lyric – provided a worthy match for his passionate playing.

To say there has been a lot of anticipation for Coldplay’s fourth album, Viva La Vida, is an understatement. Having enlisted legendary leftfield producer Brian Eno, borrowed their album title from a painting by renowned Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and made tantalising remarks about sonic reinvention, the world has been curious (to say the least) to hear what the ‘new’ Coldplay might sound like. Viva La Vida definitely makes some departures from the band’s usual formula, which happens to be one of the most commercially successful rock-pop blueprints of recent years.

The Players Association weren't exactly the band du jour in disco's heyday, but they did manage to strike up a modest cult following with their first two releases, reissued here by the excellent Ace Records imprint. Make no mistake, this isn't pure commercial disco à la the chart-toppers of the time; rather, this is a wonderful hybrid of jazz, funk, and disco by skilled musicians. Granted, many of the better tunes here are covers, but "Hustlin'" and "Ride the Groove" are probably the best two tracks the band ever recorded. This is quite easily all the Players Association you could possibly want or need in your record collection.
