This double-CD set more or less supplants – though in some ways it also enhances – the 1993 compilation Echoes: The Retrospective. With a slightly longer running time and a fair difference in song content; though the same number of tracks, the overlap between the two is surprisingly limited. Gone are "Unevensong," "Breathless," "Skylines," the studio versions of "Lunar Sea" and "West Berlin," and "City Life," among other tracks – in their place as "Stationary Traveler," "Long Goodbyes," "Slow Yourself Down," "Nimrodel," "The Great Marsh," and "Spirit of the Water," plus live renditions of "Lunar Sea" and "West Berlin"…

Deus Passus is one quarter of the Passion Project 2000, which celebrated not only the turning of the millennium but also commemorated the 250th anniversary of Bach’s death. German conductor Helmuth Rilling honored this occasion by commissioning Passions from four disparate composers: Wolfgang Rihm, Tan Dun, Sofia Gubaidulina, and Osvaldo Golijov. Deus Passus is a setting of the Passion according to St. Luke, and it is a marvel of a piece for many reasons. For a full hour and a half, with music that is mostly slow and largely atonal (in the sense that Berg’s music is atonal), the twisting, aching, unpredictable harmonies are totally captivating. Rihm chooses a straightforward setting, a simple, dramatic telling of the story, and it is in his capacity for restraint that the true brilliance of the piece lies. He uses the chorus sparingly, mostly for dramatic purposes, having it portray the angry rabble bent on crucifying Jesus (as it often does in Bach’s passions).

Live is perhaps the best way to hear Bert Jansch, to be dazzled by the quality and assurance of his guitar work as well as his way with a song. After what seemed like a long time in the wilderness, he'd found his musical path again in 1996 with When the Circus Comes to Town and Live at the 12 Bar. Recorded two years later, this sounds so much more confident than either of those releases, the music of a man who'd not only recovered his form but was back at the top of his game – you only need to hear the picking behind the voice on "She Moved Through the Fair" to understand that.

For dub fiends, beat freaks, and lovers of all manner of dark ambience, Brooklyn's Wordsound label has a sort of talismanic significance. Poorly distributed and hard to find, Wordsound's albums, singles, and dub plates are snapped up quickly when they show up in independent record stores. This collection brings together a nicely representative sampling of the catalog, all of it united under the rubric of dub, but relatively little of it drawing primarily on reggae sources – while Dubadelic's "Operation Duppy Conqueror 2001" rolls slowly under a one-drop groove and "Forward Roots" by Roots Control makes use of spoken word Rasta samples and a glutinous rockers beat, many of the other tracks are dub-wise in flavor only. Slotek's "Born God" is a sort of Brooklyn musique concrète, while spectre's "Revelations" uses an explicitly reggae-derived bassline to buttress a strangely abstract conglomeration of drum-machine beats and creepily altered vocals. When bassist Bill Laswell and drummer Style Scott lock in on the very dread "Crooklyn Dub Syndicate" (an apparent tribute to Laswell's home town and Scott's regular band), the effect is almost soothing. Highly recommended.

While his tenure as the frontman for the legendary Roxy Music remained his towering achievement, singer Bryan Ferry also carved out a successful solo career that continued in the lush, sophisticated manner perfected on the group's final records.

Contemporary jazz singer/guitarist Bobby Caldwell was born August 15, 1951, in Manhattan, NY; his parents, Bob and Carolyn, were the hosts of the television variety show Suppertime and exposed the child to a wide variety of musical influences. Caldwell began studying piano and guitar at age 12; he initially pursued a career in rock & roll but was equally adept at playing jazz and R&B and at 17 took his band on the road to play the Las Vegas circuit. From there the group moved on to Los Angeles, but despite recording an album titled Kathmandu, Caldwell enjoyed little success and eventually returned to his parents home in Miami. There he began work on his 1978 breakthrough album What You Won't Do for Love, scoring a hit single with the title cut. Efforts including a 1979 self-titled LP, The Cat in the Hat, and Carry On followed, and although Caldwell enjoyed a strong following at home, he became a superstar in Japan. He shifted creative gears with 1996's Blue Condition, a collection of big band-era standards; the similarly themed Come Rain or Come Shine followed three years later.
