Reissue with the latest 24-bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. Fast and funky fusion from David Matthews – building off the sound of his later Kudu recordings with a sweet electric groove! The album's got a pretty full approach overall – with Matthews on electric piano, and directing a large group of players that includes Mike Maineri, Michael Brecker, Jon Faddis, Shunzo Ohno, and Ronnie Cuber – and a number of tracks feature a vocal chorus that includes Ullanda McCullough and Yvonne Lewis. The overall style is slick, but not in a bad way – and Matthews more than meets the Japanese fusion sound head to head for this non-US release from the time!
Founded in the early 90s, Saddar Bazaar is a stoney-free acid folk combo from Bristols (UK) hugely inspired by the heavenly harmonies of indian droning raga. They released their first album back in 1995. This first effort provides a dynamic mixture of fuzzing acid rockin' chords and effervescent raga scales. The following albums will stress the absolute entranced acoustic aspect of their musical signature. Gorgeous, repetitive and ritualistic.
This is the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra conducted by Louis Lane 'Respighi: Pines of Rome; The Birds; Fountains of Rome' released on Telarc Records in 1985.
The Secret Language of Birds (2000) is the third studio album by Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson. It is named after the dawn chorus, the natural sound of birds heard at dawn, most noticeably in the spring.
"The Secret Language of Birds" is the third studio album by Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson. It is named after the dawn chorus, the natural sound of birds heard at dawn, most noticeably in the spring. The album is extremely impressive and great for anyone who likes soft but not slow and boring folk music. "The Secret Language of Birds" can be easily ranked among Anderson's best work, Tull or otherwise, and in many ways is the most impressive release of his career.
Johnny Kidd had no album release during during his band's existence (but almost did), and then one solitary UK compilation in the dozen years following his death. Yet he and his groups were not entirely forgotten. In fact after the 1976 tribute events, and after re-formed Pirates blew away most of the live competition that same year, interest in their late leader continued to gain pace. Johnny Kidd is now rightly recognised as a pioneer of British Rock, a true original. His standing seems reflected in the increase of rate of LP, then CD releases. The peak was the "Complete" collection in 1992 which rounded up all known recordings that were available, many mastered for the first time plus a few new stereo remixes into the bargain.
