Pianist Edward Simon – a native of Venezuela who has made a name for himself over decades in America as a jazz pianist, bandleader and composer-arranger, along with being a Guggenheim Fellow and member of the hit SFJAZZ Collective – has created fresh, supple interpretations of melodies from all these countries for Latin American Songbook.

Label/Cat#: Avie # AV0005 | Country/Year: UK 2002
Genre: Classical, Early Music | Style: Late Medieval, Renaissance

"…This release focuses on the Spanish Court of Ferdinand and Isabella and the music is drawn from three "Cancioneros," or Spanish songbooks, from the early Renaissance era. There is an amazing range of material presented among the 31 tracks on the disc, from gentle instrumental solos to bombastic courtly dances and even some folksy-sounding secular choral pieces. Although the Dufay Collective is primarily known as an instrumental group, all of the vocalizing here is splendid, with the singing of Vivian Ellis being particularly outstanding in its ease of delivery and tasteful use of decoration. This recording comes highly recommended." 4,5/5 ~AMG

Label: Bella Union | Tracks: 09 | Rls.date: 2016

Bella Union announce 'Killer Road', a collaborative project between Soundwalk Collective, Patti Smith and Jesse Paris Smith. A shimmering ambient tone, an electronic underlay to the lulling chatter of crickets, makes way for the unmistakeable voice of Patti Smith, quietly intoning, ominously, "The killer road is waiting for you / like a finger, pointing in the night." 'Killer Road' is a deep, dark, illuminating and meditative journey into mortality and motion, into fear and doubt and, eventually, death.

The new album released on the occasion of the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. Just as “Rhythms del Mundo” Cuba, it contains rearranged pop hits, but this time in a Brazilian Samba and Bossa Nova sound garment. In order to achieve the authenticity that also distinguished “Rhythms del Mundo: Cuba, the Berman Brothers recorded with Brazilian musicians, as well as internationally popular pop-voices.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a brand new 2CD deluxe anthology of the complete recordings by the legendary C.C.S. Formed in 1970, C.C.S. (Collective Consciousness Society) was the brainchild of musician and arranger John Cameron, guitarist Alexis Korner (the father of British Blues) and producer MIckie Most. The group was initially conceived as a recording band only, but following the success of their legendary cover version of Led Zeppelin’s "Whole Lotta Love” (used as the theme for "Top of the Pops” for many years) and "Tap Turns on the Water”, the band also undertook live work. C.C.S. featured the cream of jazz and blues talent such as flautist Harold McNair, bass players Herbie Flowers and Spike Heatley, sax players Tony Coe and Ron Ross, trumpet players Henry Lowther, Kenny Wheeler and Harold Beckett and drummers Barry Morgan and Tony Carr. Between 1970 and 1973 C.C.S. released three albums and seven singles for RAK Records, with one album and four singles all reaching the UK Top Forty.

Label: Domino | Tracks: 12 | Rls.date: 2016

Dizzyingly upbeat and gloriously realised, Animal Collective's new LP bounces and pops with an urgent, ecstatic energy, propelled by polyrhythmic beats and gurgling modular synth, with Noah Lennox and Dave Portner's vocals gleefully falling in and out of syncopation and off-kilter harmony. Working as a trio, Portner (Avey Tare), Lennox (Panda Bear) and Brian Weitz (Geologist) began trading demos in early 2015, pursuing a goal of what Portner calls "really short songs: no B.S, get in, get out material…" The three met up in Asheville during that Spring and began exploring the songs together.

Label: Vanguard ‎Records | Release Year: 2015

Early in 2015, Collective Soul will be releasing their ninth studio album, See What You Started by Continuing, their first album since the 2009 self-titled album (also known as Rabbit, to differentiate it from an early self-titled album). So, after eight studio albums, which included seven number one mainstream singles spanning 20 years, does Collective Soul still have it? “This”: Collective Soul fans will smile with the warm sense of familiarity as the album starts with driving guitars layered with falsetto harmonies over top and colored by the classic ‘Oooh’ backing vocal. It’s as comfortable as the first night back in your own bed after a long holiday.
