Alan Sorrenti (born December 9, 1950) is an Italian singer and composer. Actually, he started as an experimental progressive rock performer, releasing two great albums called "Aria" (1972) and "Come un vecchio incensiere all'alba di un villaggio deserto" (1973), where he showed extraordinary vocal abilities. His third, self-titled album (1974) is usually considered the least convincing of Alan's early production, despite some very good tracks, his style slowly shifting toward more a more mainstream song format. For progressive fans, checking "Aria" out is recommended, expecially the long, wandering progressive suite title track, which lasts for about 20 minutes.

A very important artist from Naples, ALAN SORRENTI released his first album in 1972 on Harvest. He had a Welsh mother and had lived in Wales as a child. "Aria" is a very good album, with two different sides: the first only contains the long title track, a dreamy suite starting with acoustic guitar and based on the marvellous, instrument-like voice of Sorrenti, and culminating in the final part with a memorable violin solo by Jean-Luc Ponty. Side 2 is softer, with three tracks, two of which ("Vorrei incontrarti") also appeared as a single. The album was successful in Italy, and Alan Sorrenti was one of the few solo artists to compete with other prog groups in the open air festivals of the time. The album was also released abroad, but to little success.

Price moved to Jet Records in 1977 and recorded a series of successful albums throughout the rest of the decade. In 1980, he crossed the big pond to record an unusual album in Los Angeles: entitled Rising Sun, it included a reworking of the song The House Of The Rising Sun, which picked up quite a bit of air play in the UK.

This is a very good live album from Alan Price which features a good mix of his old and new original material and a nice set of covers, such as Simon Smith and I Put a Spell on You. While the songs from O Lucky Man would be the best known, there are other gems here, such as Between Today and Yesterday (the LP which followed O Lucky Man) and the set as a whole is great listening. The musicians are top-notch and the production sounds really good; the drum sound is well captured, for example. Alan is in fine voice and sounds as if he's really enjoying the show(s). Highly recommended for fans of Alan Price, R&B or Randy Newman type songwriters.

The vitality of these three works by the Irish composer Jerome de Bromhead (b. 1945) points to the sheer pleasure that their creator takes in writing music. The swirling ebullience of the tone-poem A Lay for a Light Year suggests the scale and energy of the cosmos. The edgy, elegiac lyricism of the Violin Concerto inhabits textures that are brittle and clear like Stravinsky’s. And the more chromatic Second Symphony suggests a vast sense of space behind a glittering foreground of kaleidoscopic orchestral colours.

Genre: Classical, Opera | Label: Virgin Classics | Catalog: 7231162

Handel's Giove in Argo (Jupiter in Argos) is bottom-of-the-barrel stuff, a pastiche (or, in the parlance of the time, pasticcio) of numbers from earlier operas stitched together into a mythological-pastoral plot that is absurd even by the standards of Baroque opera. It is a notable sign of the success of the Baroque opera revival that this has appeared on a semi-major label, Virgin Classics. The pieces were all from operas that were fairly recent at the time, and it's possible that the work was intended as a kind of greatest-hits reprise, but London audiences did not bite; the opera was long thought to be lost, and it had its modern premiere only in 2006, with newly written recitatives.

The two-disc collection features previous albums Precious Memories and Precious Memories Volume II, as well as two previously unreleased songs: “It’s All About Him” and “That’s the Way.” Alan sang “That’s the Way” to his wife, Denise, at their wedding in 1979. “It’s All About Him” was inspired by Denise’s book of the same title. “Inspired by Denise’s strength and ability [in writing her book], I sat down and wrote a song of the same title, hoping to add musically to an already uplifting story,” said Alan.
