Heavy Blues-Rock, Hard Rock | Grooveyard Records #GYR125

Outstanding 4th studio disc by this killer heavy guitar rock band from South Africa featuring 10 tracks (61 mins.) of awesome, powerful, dynamic, blues-based, retro-sonic guitar rockin' mojo that kicks serious six string ass & truly defines superb hard rock excellence. Consisting of the classic quartet line-up, Pebbleman includes the impressive musical talents of Jesse Jordan, an amazing, soul-powered rock vocal god frontman and Richard Pryor on guitar, an incredible bad-ass axeripper who is a high-adrenaline Strat-O-Delic force to be reckoned with. Pryor (no relation to the Comedian!) is the Real deal on the guitar and his prolific axework ain't no laughing matter!

Single instrumental features have always been a prominent part of popular music from discreet embellishments behind a vocal presentation to a solo tour de force for a concert audience; the latter often resulting in a standing ovation acknowledging the musicians performance. A key interpreter of these musical experiences was the saxophonist Samuel L. Taylor, who’s playing embraced all kinds of popular music: jazz, swing, rhythm and blues - while making “breathy ballads” a speciality. With his seemingly endless enthusiasm and energy, he also became a leading exponent of the “honking” tenor sax sound heard on many nineteen fifties pop records. During this time he also led his own band recording for MGM and ten years later his ballad playing achieved international recognition particularly in Japan.

Jazz fans of a certain age who remember McCoy Tyner’s great 1973 album Enlightenment may have wondered what became of Azar Lawrence. He dropped off jazz radar for most of three decades, but he is back. The Seeker is his fifth record since 2007. He also plays in drummer-composer Franklin Kiermyer’s quartet on Further. Lawrence has been compared to John Coltrane his whole working life, but he is not a replica. He plays Coltrane’s instruments but not his licks and patterns. Even Lawrence’s sound is a variant. On soprano saxophone he is somewhat more rounded, and has slightly more vibrato on tenor. What he shares with Coltrane is an intensity of passion that overwhelms everything in its path.

Sold upon its November 2014 release as a compilation containing some unearthed, even "forgotten," material, Queen Forever doesn't contain much new in either its standard or deluxe versions. Just three songs, actually: a finished version of the Works outtake "Let Me in Your Heart Again," a reworked version of Freddie Mercury's solo "Love Kills" from the soundtrack to Giorgio Moroder's Metropolis, and a completed version of "There Must Be More to Life Than This," a Freddie duet with Michael Jackson from the early '80s…

This album is driven by Bramerie’s thumping bass and Agulhon’s pounding drums whilst Pédron plays his alto over the top of the rhythm section. Most of the The Cure’s most famous tracks are covered starting with The Forest and then moving onto In Your House which has some great backing vocals from guest Pourquery. The Caterpillar follows and then my own personal favourite Cure track In Between Days which is interpreted very differently here.

Returning to the leader's chair after a seven-year absence, drummer Roy Haynes signed with Boplicity and released Hip Ensemble in 1971. Named after the group Haynes led at the time – a group that featured George Adams on saxophone and flute, Marvin Peterson on trumpet, Mervin Bronson on bass, and Carl Schroeder on keys – the title Hip Ensemble somewhat gives away the game: this is now music, perched halfway between the out futurism that was Haynes' specialty while playing with Archie Shepp, Jackie McLean, Chick Corea, and Jack DeJohnette and the fusion that was creeping into the most adventurous aspects of '70s jazz.

Cavalli/Stradella's "Il Novello Giasone" was revived for the Valle d'Itria Festival in 2011 and provides us with an illuminating example of the workings of Italian baroque opera on the cusp between the first and second generation of the great composers in the genre during the mid 17th century.

Genre: Classical | Label: Brilliant Classics | # 94169

The Ferrara‐born Luzzasco Luzzaschi might not exactly be a household name, but his contribution to the development of the madrigal places him within that elite category of composers who helped shape the course of music history. The favourite musician of Duke Alfonso II, the last of the legitimate d’Este (the most intellectual and cultivated dynasty of Renaissance Italy) it was Luzzaschi who, in his role as the finest keyboard player of the period, cultivated the open score approach to performance. This was essentially a sort of motet of madrigal without words that focused on highly refined counterpoint and on the complexity of fugues i.e. four‐voice writing, without recourse to embellishment or any added prettiness. Only the second of the composer’s three books of ricercari, as detailed in this recording, has survived – a regrettable fact, given that the 1578 manuscript is unrivalled in its complexity among keyboard music of the second half of the 16th century.

The music by Alessandro Stradella is gaining rapidly in recognition and popularity. The composer’s extremely adventurous life (he was a ladykiller, who himself was murdered in the end by a revengeful rival) and his equally adventurous music presents a forceful image of a fascinating and important figure of the Italian Baroque.
