Van Morrison probably chose to give a pair of skiffle concerts in November, 1998 not because he was nostalgic, but because he has genuine love for this music. At least, that's the impression The Skiffle Sessions gives. It's a cheerfully old-fashioned yet curiously fresh album. By skipping "Rock Island Line," the style's best-known tune, and emphasizing the music's foundation in American folk, blues, and jazz, they wind up revitalizing skiffle while paying homage to it.

Most of Art Pepper's first three studio dates as a leader are represented in this compilation, though a few previously issued alternate takes are omitted. The first date finds the alto saxophonist in fine form, leading a quartet consisting of pianist Hampton Hawes, bassist Joe Mondragon, and drummer Larry Bunker. Pepper primarily sticks to originals, though he offers a warm rendition of the standard "These Foolish Things" as well.

Nearly six years after she released her acclaimed debut CD, Soma-Bandhu, devotional singer Carrie Grossman forges new territory in her much-anticipated follow-up, The Ram Sessions. Praised by saints and sages through the ages, "Ram" has been a beloved mantra for millennia. In honor of this rich tradition, each diverse track on this concept album explores Rama Nama—"the name of Ram". From "Touch the Sky" (a soaring pop song) to "Deep Peace" (a meditative lullaby) to the epic "Rambient" (an ambient vocal masterpiece), The Ram Sessions takes the listener on a spiritual and sonic journey that soothes even as it inspires. Uplifting, haunting, and healing at once, The Ram Sessions is sure to please fans of devotional music, as well as anyone seeking to ease the mind and unburden the heart.

The album includes tracks originally recorded by King Kurtis, Rufus & Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Anita Baker, Whitney Houston, Jill Scott, Erma Franklin, Stevie Wonder & Bread. It includes 3 original tracks co-written by Deni, including the lead single 'What About Love' - a homage to Motown with an irresistible chorus & hooks galore. 'I Got Your Back' and 'Runnin' are also co-written by Deni, with the inclusion of 'Runnin' offering an acoustic version of a track Deni first released in 2001 whilst signed to Mushroom Records.

In a certain sense, all of Colbie Caillat's albums sound as if they could be called The Malibu Sessions. Few singer/songwriters of the early 21st century embody the breezy ideals of Southern California as well as Caillat, but she pushed back against her inherent lightness on 2014's Gypsy Heart, co-writing with a battalion of hitmakers and even enlisting mega-producer Max Martin for a track. None of this turned Gypsy Heart into a hit, so she took an indie route for 2016's The Malibu Sessions which, in fact, was the album Caillat hoped to release instead of Gypsy Heart.
