A Japanese reissue of this terrific session which was originally released on three LPs. It's beautifully remastered in 20-bit K2 super coding and contains one track not on any of the original LPs. Originally issued on three LPs, the music resulting from Hampton Hawes' All Night Session! was stereophonically recorded for the Contemporary label in Los Angeles on the night of November 12 and into the morning of November 13, 1956. This session transcended the conventions of studio production by moving steadily from one tune to the next like a live gig with no alternate takes.
A prolific singer, remembered as one of the greatest pop song stylists alongside Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Sarah Vaughan. Peggy Lee's alluring tone, distinctive delivery, breadth of material, and ability to write many of her own songs made her one of the most captivating artists of the vocal era, from her breakthrough on the Benny Goodman hit "Why Don't You Do Right" to her many solo successes, singles including "Mañana," "Lover" and "Fever" that showed her bewitching vocal power, a balance between sultry swing and impeccable musicianship.
The aria Ombra mai fu at the start of Act I of Handel's opera seria Serse (Xerxes) is likely to be its best-known asset. Serse was written in 1733-38, at the end of Handel's career as an opera composer: he concentrated on oratorio after 1741. It is a great achievement. Not least because it uses the music, and the marriage of words and music, to evoke in the audience pathos, sympathy, delight, and as much tempered ridicule as tempered tenderness.

All titles are digitally remastered and restored to John's original audio mixes spanning his solo career. This collection also contains a booklet with photos, drawings, handwritten lyrics and more. Each disc comes with it's own cardboard sleeve all encased, along with the booklet, in a hard outer slipcase box.
In this fourth volume of the series Pa saber de flamenco offer an overview of the capacity to take sophisticated flamenco, flirting with other musical forms. Invite you to take a journey that is a return to the root, a trip to the seed. All the voices and guitars of the great classics of our time, Camarón Paco de Lucia, through Sanlúcar and Carmen Linares. Of course we also offer classic flamenco tradition in the voices of the great historical masters like Antonio Mairena, Porrina of Badajoz, Manolo Caracol or El Chato de la Isla, among others. Pa Saber de Flamenco 4 is not a disc but a gem. A naked heart, the heart of flamenco. An ancient art that is more alive than ever. And in this mechanical world in which we live, this virtue of stripping the heart is something unusual.
