Laurence Hobgood, Brian Torff, and Paul Wertico's Union is a busman's holiday for the musicians. On their second album, they take tunes from everywhere – the folk song "Jacob's Ladder," Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Double Rainbow," Lionel Bart's "Where Is Love?" from the musical Oliver, and some originals – and have fun with them, sometimes playing slowly and thoughtfully, sometimes melodically and warmly, sometimes in cacophonous free improvisation. The spontaneity of the sessions is added to by the recording process, which is strictly direct to stereo, unmixed and unedited, and in that sense true jazz. The players are familiar enough with each other to play sympathetically, but since they only get together occasionally, there are plenty of surprises. It may not be their best, most considered work, but there's some fine playing. (William Ruhlmann, AMG)

Laurence Hobgood is best known for being singer Kurt Elling's regular pianist. Hobgood's solos are thoughtful and inventive, so it is only right that he finally has a chance to fully shine on this CD. The date actually features a co-op group that also includes the virtuosic bassist Brian Torff (who has had a lower profile since he impressed many during his period with George Shearing) and drummer Paul Wertico. Most of their collaborations on this set are taken at slow to medium tempos, with the improvisations being melodic, lightly swinging, and full of subtle surprises. Torff has a few features (being particularly impressive on "Amazing Grace"), Wertico plays well in support, and Hobgood is in top form. The program concludes with a humorous version of "What Am I Here For." Recommended (Scott Yanow, AMG).

As she examines the many misconceptions about the "Middle Ages", the renown French historian, Régine Pernoud, gives the reader a refreshingly original perspective on many subjects, both historical (from the Inquisition and witchcraft trials to a comparison of Gothic and Renaissance creative inspiration) as well as eminently modern (from law and the place of women in society to the importance of history and tradition). …

« À côté d'une abondante littérature hagiographique et d'hypothèses foisonnantes, totalement gratuites et uniformément sottes, les documents, eux, s'imposent avec la rigueur la plus totale. Pour les Templiers, il est, encore une fois, à peine croyable de comparer en esprit la littérature (non plus hagiographique mais carrément démentielle en quelques cas) qu'ils ont suscitée, et d'autre part ces documents si simples, si probants, si tranquillement irréfutables qui constituent leur histoire vraie. »

On the face of it, his carefully hand-written scores move notes across a page, using minimal resources to create elegant formal shapes whose simple repetitions or drones gather cumulative weight as they go. But in, these sounds evoke a vivid imaginative world, from the humdrum - the chime of a clock, a siren's wail, the whirr of an air-conditioning system - to the sublime. Unlike most composers, Crane deals with beauty quite unapologetically, and this is a very beautiful album.

Décembre 2014. Depuis plusieurs semaines, la narratrice sait qu'elle va devoir vendre la maison de son enfance. Lieu des origines et de l'ancrage, de la mémoire familiale et de sa propre mémoire. Face à ce chagrin intime, écrire un livre lui semble la seule chose encore possible : trouver les mots pour, peut-être, sauver quelque chose de la maison avant qu'elle ne disparaisse de sa vie, lui restituer une part d'éternité. Janvier 2015. La vague d'attentats qui frappe la France la laisse sans mots, avec le sentiment d'avoir été dépossédée du monde tel qu'elle le connaissait…

The first ever release of the late 1970’s recordings, La Petite Fenetre by Laurence Vanay is a powerful collection of songs from an unsung French artist. As an arranger at Château d’Hérouville studios, Vanay spent far too much time on other people’s sounds to release her own music. Finally these beautiful instrumentals get the airing they deserve…
