The ghost of Schweitzer hovers around this recording beyond the fact that it is dedicated to the Albert Schweitzer Institute for the Humanities. The programme includes, in the three chorale preludes, Schweitzer’s favourite Bach works, and the magnificent Arp Schnitger organ at Zwolle was one he himself played. More than that, though, Michael Murray’s performances are strongly influenced by, if not deliberately modelled on, Schweitzer’s style of Bach playing.
Schweitzer’s Bach was statuesque; the music placed on a plinth with every individual note painstakingly sculpted to derive maximum emotional and symbolic significance. The resulting performances unfold with a grandiloquence and weight quite at odds with the more matter-of-fact style of modern-day Bach playing.
– Marc Rochester, Gramophone [5/1997]

Considered one of the band's best albums, Sonic Youth's 2002 release Murray Street is named for the location of the group's studio in New York City, only two blocks from the World Trade Center. The terrorist attacks of 9/11 occurred during the writing and recording of this album, which therefore reflects the turmoil and uncertainty of the times. Murray Street also marks the beginning of Grammy-winning producer and guitarist Jim O'Rourke's six year stint as a member of Sonic Youth.

The Distance represents a grand creative leap for bassist-composer Michael Formanek, following two widely lauded ECM releases featuring his quartet with Tim Berne, Craig Taborn and Gerald Cleaver. The new album showcases his texturally rich compositions for the dynamic 18-piece big band he has playfully dubbed Ensemble Kolossus. The project saw some of the most distinctive musicians on the New York scene bonding to realize Formaneks epic design, as he re-imagined what a big-band can be. Channeling sounds from the classic to the modern, he also composed for individual soloists in the Ellingtonian tradition.

It sounds as if Seattle-based trumpeter Cuong Vu is in the early stages of lining up the jazz guitar gods and recording and releasing an album with each. The year 2015 saw him offer up Cuong Vu Trio Meets Pat Metheny (Nonesuch Records), and 2017 finds him bringing Bill Frisell into his orbit, with Ballet: The Music Of Michael Gibbs. These are two distinct guitar voices, joining in the crafting of two distinctly different sounds. The Metheny collaboration featured—like much of Vu's recorded output—a lot of electricity: a wired up trumpet, Metheny's guitar spewing tidal surges of electrons into a heavy sludge of bass and drums, resulting in a sonic density that seemed, at times, impenetrable. A sound so dense that, if you ran a Roomba at it, the little electro-machine's sensor might "detect" a wall; it might make the little vacuum cleaner do a hundred and eighty and go the other way.

Michael Henderson's solo debut Solid brought immediate recognition to the longtime backing vocalist/musician. The mesmerizing ballad "Be My Girl" was the first release, and it propelled Henderson to number 23 on the R&B charts. (He later produced the same song for the Dramatics.) Composed by Henderson, "Valentine Love" is an even more indelible ballad. The spirited, seductive sax introduction bows to a poetic narrative and a smooth rhythm in which Henderson gives a ample vocal exhibition. The single was originally featured on Norman Connors' Saturday Night Special album, with Henderson sharing lead vocal duties with Jean Carne.

Michael Young - L’avvento della meritocrazia. Gli uomini sono tutti uguali?
Italian | 2014 | 231 pages | ISBN: 8898220170 | EPUB | 1,4 MB

Anno 2033: la Meritocrazia è al potere. La nuova classe dirigente governa grazie a riforme economiche e sociali ispirate al principio dell'uguaglianza delle opportunità e dell'intelligenza misurata scientificamente. Ma anziché produrre un sistema democratico maggiormente realizzato, il risultato è una nuova società di casta in cui la grande maggioranza è umiliata ancora più sottilmente. E per questo, infine, si rivolta. Con quest'opera di fanta-sociologia Michael Young inventava nel 1958 la parola "meritocrazia", in irriverente opposizione a un'esaltazione ideologica del principio del merito, proiettando così nel futuro, con esiti inaspettati e sinistri, una delle tendenze più invocate del nostro tempo.
