Youngest son of J.S. Bach, Johann Christian Bach rose to prominence in England during the early Classical period much the same as his father dominated the German Baroque. His writing was influenced by his father, of course, but also by the fashions being explored by Haydn. J.C. Bach also served as a bridge to Mozart, whose work and early writings were also influenced by the junior Bach. A total of 15, three-movement symphonies were published under Opp. 6, 9, and 18.

Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound from the original master tapes to vinyl and PCM. This 1964 studio session features the Peterson trio with bassist Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen, a group that had been together for five years by then and performed like a well-oiled machine. The repertoire is mostly pop songs of the day, including bossa nova tunes and film themes, and the treatments are fairly brief, with emphasis placed squarely on the melodies. Even in their lightest moments, though, the group demonstrates some of the qualities that made it among the most influential piano trios in jazz, a group that could generate tremendous rhythmic energy and a sense of developing musical detail. For all his legendary force, Peterson possesses a subtle rhythmic sense, and here he infuses even "People" with an undercurrent of swing. This is undemanding, tuneful music best suited for casual listening, but it still sparkles with the trio's customary élan.

Takács Quartet - Haydn: String Quartets, Op. 74 (2011)  Music

Genre: Classical | Label: Hyperion | Catalog: CDA67781

The Takács Quartet, Hungarian but now resident in the U.S., takes string quartet playing back to its basics here, and does so transcendently (paradoxical as that may sound). You may find the playing a bit neutral at first, with Haydn's more dancelike rhythms rendered straightforwardly, but keep listening: each movement is a carefully polished jewel, with each instrument making up a set of perfectly sharp facets.

EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 60:05 | 273 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Chandos Records | Catalog: CHAN 10667

The violin and piano sonatas of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel draw on foreign idioms: gypsy music in Debussy's case and African-American blues in Ravel's. But they remain completely French works, spiced with something exotic, and British violinist Jennifer Pike forges interpretations that keep this in mind. Start with the "Blues" slow movement of the Ravel Violin Sonata in G major: Pike and her accompanist, Martin Roscoe, avoid exaggerating the bluesy qualities of the music and instead emphasize the odd, almost tense disconnection between violin and piano that, combined with the languid blues melodies, gives this piece its special piquancy.

Not long into the ceaseless promotional parade for Born This Way, Lady Gaga’s second full-length record and easily the most anticipated record of the 2010s, a certain sense of inevitability crept into play. It was inevitable that Born This Way would be an escalation of The Fame, it was inevitable that Gaga would go where others feared to tread, it was inevitable that it would be bigger than any other record thrown down in 2011, both in its scale and success…

Hailing from Finland is Paidarion, one of the more unique acts on the modern progressive rock scene. Their sound consists of various styles of prog rock, as well as a liberal dosing of jazz, funk, pop, and a host of other genres. Behind the Curtains is their second full-length album, and in spite of its diversity and complex nature, it manages to remain surprisingly accessible and user-friendly. Paidarion have crafted a pretty enjoyable record this time around, and anyone who enjoys the more eclectic side of modern art rock should be sure to give this a listen.

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1980 album from the Grammy-winning R&B duo. TWICE AS SWEET was their third album overall and was produced by Jazz legend George Duke. The single 'Rescue Me' returned the band to the R&B Top 20 and also quickly became heavily-sampled in early Hip Hop. However, it was the album's third single, a cover of a Japanese pop song with new English-language lyrics written by Johnson, that gave the band a massive surprise hit. 'Sukiyaki' topped the Adult Contemporary charts and gave the band a second R&B chart-topper as well as making #3 on the US Pop chart and becoming a million-selling single.

1979 saw The Enid move to Pye records. Having been given the biggest advance in the label's history, Godfrey made the smart move to purchase the recording equipment they needed to make their next album, Touch Me. A smart move, as the label collapsed shortly after. Touch Me continued the band's trajectory away from mainstream 'rock' music. Eschewing much of the 'hippies play the proms' sound of the previous two albums, and favouring more complex, densely layered piano and synthesizer compositions to tracks such as Gallivant and Albion Fair, the band sounded less like a rock band and more like accomplished classical musicians pushing the boundaries of the new electronic technology.
