Vinyl LP + 7" Single | Bungalow BUNG 101.1 | Electro | Berlin · Germany

From the vivid Berlin electro scene a very successful release with remixes from Mina's 2001 recording 'A To B'. Often these remix compilations are repetitive and tend to be boring, but not in this case. Many different styles from minimal to street jazz, from noise to pop are found here and give a pleasant listening. And the sound from vinyl is amazing, I don't know if I should believe this, but Adobe Audition tells me that the frequency range of these 96 kHz / 24 Bit rips goes up to 40 kHz. Although I'm sure I can't hear these frequencies, what I do hear is still impressive. Check it out!

A new album by legendary pianist and composer Ahmad Jamal is always a hotly anticipated event. But Marseille has an additional glow of excitement as it is a very personal expression of the sincere and long-standing mutual admiration that has existed between the American artist and French audiences for over six decades. The title track of the record is a love letter to the iconic Southern city whose magnificent port and dazzling light have inspired numerous artists and filmmakers over the years. In a daring departure for Jamal, it features a striking performance by French rapper Abd Al Malik. Marseille is the work of a master musician who never says more than he has to but always says enough to make the world sit up and listen.

Only one of the roles represented in this Verdi recital figured in Callas’s stage repertoire: Elisabetta in Don Carlo, which she performed at La Scala in 1954. From the same opera she also sings Eboli’s mezzo-soprano showpiece “O don fatale”, a feature of her recitals in the early 1960s. An adventurous choice are Mina’s arias from the rarely-heard Aroldo (Verdi’s reworking of Stiffelio): ‘The vivid pronunciation of the words, the burning emotion conveyed by tone-color, and the powerful and eloquent sense of rhythm, are all memorable. So is the fearless quality of Callas’s singing,’ said Gramophone. When it came to Desdemona’s scene from Act IV of Otello, the critic wrote: ‘Verdi’s music is brought to life as by no other artist. Her voice is in fine state: very beautiful, and drawing a full glorious line’.

Une compagnie de danse hip-hop et un quatuor à cordes, impensable ?
Ce n’est pas la réponse donnée par le Quatuor Debussy et Mourad Merzouki, qui se lancent dans le défi d’un spectacle autour de la boxe ; en y mettant des gants, l’univers de combat se crée. Les compositeurs invités sur le ring sont Maurice Ravel, Giuseppe Verdi, Félix Mendelssohn, Franz Schubert et son célèbre quatuor « la jeune fille et la mort », Philipp Glass avec Dracula et Henryk Gorecki. Ce n’est donc pas le Ring de Wagner ! Le parti pris des musiciens a été de participer aux recherches chorégraphiques dès le début du travail pour pouvoir créer et choisir ensemble les univers musicaux.

Eric Serra's score to Luc Besson's visionary yet incomprehensible sci-fi thriller The Fifth Element is a roller coaster of emotions, ranging from triumphant anthems to haunting mood pieces. Serra's score is diverse and accomplished, and it is just as effective outside of the film as it is within it. This reissue is newly remastered edition with one bonus track.

They lived and worked in Germany in the sixties, and although they were no professional musicians, they produced this record to raise funds for the ANC and the fight against Apartheid.
