A precocious violin talent, Bloch left home at the age of seventeen to study with the illustrious Belgian violinist and composer Eugène Ysaÿe, who regognised his pupil's extraordinary creative potential and persuaded him to pursue composition. Bloch's Violin Cocnerto, an underrated rarity, is one of his most important works of the 1930s. Although Bloch attributed the major themes in the Concerto to American Indian songs heard on a visit to New Mexico, he also described the work as portraying 'the complex, glowing, agitated soul that I feel vibrating through the Bible'. The Suite hébraïque, which draws on traditional melodies to evoke a sense of nostalgia, and the exotic tryptich Baal Shem (Three Pictures of Chassidic Life), are indelibly associated with Bloch's 'Jewish works'.

Jason Becker is the protagonist of one of rock & roll's most tragic and inspiring stories, refusing to give up his joie de vivre or his inspirational muse despite being struck down by A.L.S. almost 15 years before this particular release, 2002's The Blackberry Jams. Of course, the fact that Becker's difficult condition has made it impossible for him to pick up, much less play, a guitar in over a decade, predicates that the 31 solos and song-snippets collected here were all committed to tape a long time ago, mostly between 1987 and 1988.

Using an eye communication system invented by his father, Jason is able to escape the confines of his own body and release the music that is trapped inside of his mind.

"Perspective" is the second studio album by the guitarist Jason Becker, released independently on May 21, 1996, through Jason Becker Music and reissued on May 22, 2001, through Warner Bros. Records. This album strays away from his shredding past to more compositional based pieces. One of the main reasons for this was because of the affects ALS was having on his playing ability. Shred guitar still apparent in most of the songs but isn't the main center of the compositions. The album consists of several different musical styles such as chanting and classical elements.

I wanna back to the islands
Where the shrimp boats tie up to the pilin'
Gimme oysters and beer For dinner every day of the year
and I'll feel fine I'll feel fine

Rocksteady is officially Monty Alexander's recording. His deal with Telarc, now being realized, was that he record a straight jazz recording and then one of his own choosing. This is the latter. Mr. Alexander, along with his Jamaican brother Ernest Ranglin, turns his attention to the ska music of their young adulthood. And this music absolutely smacks of the islands. Few musical styles can conjure temporal images the way ska and reggae do for salty sea air, rum, and smoke. Honored here is the ska heyday of the late 1960s and early 1970s, the music of Toots and the Maytals, The Blues Blasters, Theophilous Beckford, and Derrick Harriott.

For those listeners expecting reggae, modify your expectations. This music is a humid mixture of island music, American R&B and Soul, and Afro-Cuban jazz, and pop shined through the distinctly Jamaican cultural prism, producing this rich, sexual music. Little of Monty Alexander?s jazz chops are present, as I am sure was his design. Instead the pianist becomes a groove merchant establishing commerce with his partner in crime, guitarist Ernest Ranglin, whose role is to play funk master to Alexander?s relentless groove.

The disc was recorded live in the studio with no overdubs, providing this music with the necessary “live” feel. This is serious music that will make one smile and hope that Mr. Alexander provides us more.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1974 and the culmination of a life's work, The Denial of Death is Ernest Becker's brilliant and impassioned answer to the "why" of human existence. In bold contrast to the predominant Freudian school of thought, Becker tackles the problem of the vital lie: man's to acknowledge his own mortality. In doing so, he sheds new light on the nature of humanity and issues a call to life and its living that still resonates more than 30 years after its writing.
