Oh Mercy was hailed as a comeback, not just because it had songs noticeably more meaningful than anything Bob Dylan had recently released, but because Daniel Lanois’ production gave it cohesion. There was cohesion on Empire Burlesque, of course, but that cohesion was a little too slick, a little too commercial, whereas this record was filled with atmospheric, hazy production — a sound as arty as most assumed the songs to be. And Dylan followed suit, giving Lanois significant songs — palpably social works, love songs, and poems — that seemed to connect with his past.Read More

Keith Jarrett’s Standards Trio spread their wings during live performance in as astute and dignified a manner as any group since the similarly sized Bill Evans ensembles of three decades prior. Bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette easily match the Evans bandmates Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian in terms of their telepathy, rhythmic savvy, harmonic ideas and supportive idealism.Read More

Unlike the other two Keith Jarrett trio recordings from January 1983, this collaboration with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette does not feature standards. The trio performs the 30-minute “Flying” and a 6-minute “Prism,” both of them Jarrett originals. “Flying,” which has several sections, keeps one’s interest througout while the more concise “Prism” has a beautiful melody. It is a nice change to hear Jarrett (who normally plays unaccompanied) interacting with a trio of superb players.Read More

Subtitled ‘The Ravel Album’, this album was also released in the USA as ‘Boléro’ with different packaging and a different running order. A 7″ and 12″ single of ‘Bolero’ (the tune) was released in the UK by popular demand in the light of the success of the movie “10” starring Bo Derek and Dudley Moore. It actually hit the Top 75! Tomita says that this is his favourite album. It was presented to his daughter on her marriage. His daughter’s name and that of her fianceé were written using grass in the picture of ‘Daphnis et Chloé’.Read More

It was pretty clear that Billy Joel had run out of steam by 1993’s River of Dreams. He had shown signs of wearing on its predecessor, Storm Front, but his trademark melodic gift disappeared on River of Dreams and his words, even performances, were bone-tired — he even called the last song “The Last Song (No More Words).” So, it was no great surprise that he did not rush to record a follow-up, and when he started murmuring toward the end of the decade that perhaps he wasn’t interested in pop music anymore, nobody who paid attention could have been surprised.Read More

An Innocent Man is the ninth studio album by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel, released on August 8, 1983. The concept album is a tribute to the American popular music of Joel’s adolescent years with Joel paying homage to a number of different popular American musical styles from the late 1950s and early 1960s, most notably doo-wop and soul music. The album cover artwork was taken on the front steps of 142 Mercer Street, just north of the intersection of Mercer and Prince Street in the SoHo neighborhood in New York City.Read More

If The Hurting was mental anguish, Songs from the Big Chair marks the progression towards emotional healing, a particularly bold sort of catharsis culled from Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith’s shared attraction to primal scream therapy. The album also heralded a dramatic maturation in the band’s music, away from the synth-pop brand with which it was (unjustly) seared following the debut, and towards a complex, enveloping pop sophistication.Read More

Returning to Gentle Giant’s fourth album after any kind of lengthy absence, it’s astonishing just how little Octopus has dated. Often written off at the time as a pale reflection of the truly gargantuan steps being taken by the likes of Jethro Tull and Barclay James Harvest, the band’s closest relatives in the tangled skein of period prog, Gentle Giant often seemed more notable for its album art than its music.Read More

During the pontificate of Urban VIII (1623-1644), the arts in Rome enjoyed a period of unprecedented splendor. In the context of the Counterreformation, they were part of the propaganda arsenal of papal might. The architecture of Bernini and Borromini, as well as the musiche of Mazzocchi and Rossi, echoing in the private apartments of the cardinals and the accademie, where the elite of Rome congregated to enjoy music and poetry, bear witness to this trend.Read More

With their second album, Miles Smiles, the second Miles Davis Quintet really began to hit their stride, delving deeper into the more adventurous, exploratory side of their signature sound. This is clear as soon as “Orbits” comes crashing out the gate, but it’s not just the fast, manic material that has an edge — slower, quieter numbers are mercurial, not just in how they shift melodies and chords, but how the voicing and phrasing never settles into a comfortable groove.Read More

Rebecca Pidgeon’s signature sweet voice has spanned three solo albums and distinct musical and song styles; now commemorating the best from each album, Retrospective highlights the individual tiles that together create an exacting mosaic of this amazing singer/songwriter. The collection starts off with a bang featuring Rebecca’s highly regarded rendition of Spanish Harlem, considered an audiophile classic. The release hosts key selections from each of Rebecca’s albums including such favorites as 24 Hours of Love, Fhear a Bhata, and Primitive Man. Retrospective finishes gallantly with the inspiring piece that combines spoken word by husband and famous playwright David Mamet with Sam Cooke’s Bring It On Home To Me, all warmly overlaid with Robert Burns’ famous poem Auld Lang Syne.Read More

Reflective yet contemporary, Rebecca’s lovely voice rings with honest, unpretentious confidence and vivid tenderness. While her Celtic melodies set the mood, her lyrics tell stories, full, rich, textured, and open hearted. The Raven marks the U.S. debut of this amazing talent & Chesky Record’s most striking, powerful and fully realized vocal record to date.Read More
