Vanessa Benelli Mosell is a rising star on the international music scene. She is continuously praised for her virtuosity, her technical brilliance and the sensitivity of her musical insight, which have been shaped significantly in mentorships with Karlheinz Stockhausen and Yuri Bashmet. This Decca debut recording of Italian pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell pays tribute to solo piano music of the 20th century including works by Stockhausen (Klavierstück) and Stravinsky (Trois Mouvements de Petrouchka). The album is completed by the world premiere recording of Karol Beffa's Suite pour Piano ou Clavecin. "A remarkably musical and fluent young pianist … Remember the name." - New York Post
"Evolution of a Criminal" – Filmmaker Darius Clark Monroe returns to the crime scene to explore what led him to rob a bank as a teenager.
Reissue with the latest remastering. Comes with liner notes. While the phenomenal success of George Benson’s Breezin’ (1976) album may have fattened his wallet; it led the guitarist down a path that dismayed jazz critics worldwide. Indeed, the bulk of Benson’s albums over the past 20 years have featured considerably less jazz and, unfortunately, more pop. Not so with The George Benson Cookbook (1966). This sizzling CD features the then young, hotshot string-picker on 14 swingin’ bebop/soul-jazz tracks. Benson kicks things off in rapid fashion with the aptly titled, "The Cooker." Not only does this track feature blazing licks from Benson, but baritone saxophonist Ronnie Cuber and organist Lonnie Smith also weigh in with tasty solos.
