Modern Jazz Quartet - A Morning In Paris (2008) [2CD]

Pianist/composer/musical director John Lewis, vibraphonist Milt Jackson, drummer Kenny Clarke (later replaced by Connie Kay), and bassist Percy Heath formed the Modern Jazz Quartet in the mid 1950s and were still together in the mid '90s (after a six-year break). The group's popular chamber-jazz sound was informed by Lewis's extensive studies in European compositional techniques. Jackson died in 1999, definitively closing the book on the long-lived, enormously influential quartet.

A double-length live set from the legendary Modern Jazz Quartet – recorded in Scandinavia in 1960, almost as a summation of the group's growing genius in the 50s! The tunes are a mix of John Lewis and Milt Jackson originals, plus other songs all given the wonderful MJQ twist – distilled into a sublime blend of piano, vibes, bass, and drums – all delivered with a sense of class, but never too much polish. The album is live, but still has that sophisticated composure that made the group so unique at the time – and the whole thing's a perfect complement to their famous studio albums on Atlantic!

Ritmi incalzanti, produzione che strizza l'occhio al mondo dell'elettronica, ritornelli cantabili e radiofonici, atmosfere vivaci: "Mi hai fatto fare tardi", la canzone scelta come singolo apripista, rappresenta bene i colori musicali e il mood di "Modern art", quarto album in studio della cantautrice piacentina. Le differenze rispetto al precedente, "Frasi & fumo", si sentono: quel disco, prodotto da Mauro Pagani, era un omaggio alla musica nera e alla tradizione italiana anni '60 e '70, classico e molto suonato. "Modern art", invece, è un disco urbano e tropicale, come Nina Zilli ha ripetuto nelle varie interviste: se "Frasi & fumo" te lo immaginavi suonato in uno di quei club con tavolinetti, tavoli da biliardo e un piccolo palco sullo sfondo, questo nuovo disco te lo immagini suonato su una spiaggia di Kingston all'ora del tramonto.

London duo TENDER’s debut album, ‘Modern Addiction,’ listens like catharsis. From orgasm, to break-up, to silence, the record breaths closure to a relationship that has intensified, shattered, and healed. It is young, cold, urban, lonely, and an intrinsically modern look at the irrepressible desire to maintain a love, be it destined or doomed. James Cullen and Dan Cobb’s debut full length explores the phenomenon of comfort and compulsion that is addiction, via a pop record about a relationship. Cullen frames familiar feelings for us to relate to and digest, but simultaneously undermines their presence, leaving the listener holding the same hollow heart that he carried through his addiction. Cobb's soaring synths and progressive percussion are waxed and shined by the album's sleek club mix, and the juxtaposition with Cullen's lyrics is heartbreaking.

Coast Modern is an American indie pop duo based in Los Angeles, California, known for their 2015 single “Hollow Life.” The duo consists of Luke Atlas and Coleman Trapp. When Los Angeles-based duo Coast Modern first met at a friend's studio in 2014, the guys (Coleman Trapp and Luke Atlas) never thought they'd become a band. Trapp didn't set out to be a singer, as he'd been producing hip-hop music, and Atlas was doing the same in the alternative genre. But then a gig with NASA changed everything.

Modern Kosmology sees Jane Weaver's melodic-protagonist channeling new depths of creative cosmic energy within. After the huge critical acclaim of 2012's Fallen By Watchbird, followed by 2015's exploratory Silver Globe LP winning her unanimous "record of the year accolades" and hefty measures of radio play-listing, Jane Weaver's conceptual trajectory has sent her neo-kosmische penchants to the point of no-return. Jane Weaver's unwaning yearning for psychoactive pop energy has just reached a new level of magnetism. As snowclones go, Modern Kosmology is the new Silver. Another Spectrum to add to the tension. Jane Weaver also announces a short run of album launch shows in the UK this May, ahead of more extensive UK and European touring to be announced later in the year.
