Interesting stuff! We've got to admit, we don't know if this material was legitimately recorded and/or released against Al's wishes – but the album's a nice one, perhaps some of the best soul material you'll ever find by Jarreau! The record features Al covering Bill Withers tunes from the early days, and it's got a very similar feel to Withers' best work on Sussex – from which it draws heavily, on songs like "Kissing My Love", "Grandma's Hands", "Use Me", "Lonely Town, Lonely Street", "Lean On Me", "Ain't No Sunshine", "You", and "The Same Love That Made Me Laugh". In fact, the arrangements almost seem to be the same as those on the Withers' recordings – with the real difference being Jarreau's vocals, slightly smoother, and a bit more on the jazzy tip.

Award-winning British vibraphonist, composer and drummer Lewis Wright explodes the rhythmic and polyphonic possibilities offered by vibraphone and piano. His new album "Duets" reinforces his claim to be a very serious international musician.

American lyric soprano Nicole Cabell's 2007 solo debut album was named Editor’s Choice by Gramophone and received an incredible amount of critical acclaim and several prestigious awards. Drawn strongly to the French vocal repertoire, on this 2014 release Cabell explores the world of the chanson, and its direct descendant, the mélodie: France’s answer to the German lied, or art song. The finest of mélodie composers are represented on this collection: Georges Bizet, Henri Duparc, Franz Liszt and Maurice Ravel. Cabell's rich, silky-smooth voice and beautifully nuanced interpretations are supported with sensitivity and elegance by pianist Craig Terry.

As intended, this album presents alto sax specialist Paul Desmond as never featured before, with the backing of a string orchestra. The record, filled with such beautiful jazz standards as "My Funny Valentine," "I've Got You Under My Skin," and "Body and Soul," is very rich in texture, yet subtle and mellow overall in mood. It's unyielding purpose: to soothe the souls of its listeners. Desmond's style and tone shine with an alluring quality, and the record is filled with melodies that don't fail to stimulate the sophisticated jazz listener.

Actor Lorne Greene enjoyed a brief recording career in the mid-'60s, when he was at the height of his popularity thanks to his role as Ben Cartwright on the long-running Western series "Bonanza". In the meantime, NBC, hoping to capitalize on the series' popularity, brought several cast members into the recording studio. Greene released his first album in 1963, and the following year he scored a surprise number one smash with "Ringo", a Western story song he narrated rather than sang. Greene charted a couple more times with 1965's "The Man" and 1966's "Waco", and released a total of five albums on RCA Victor from 1963 to 1966. Afterwards, he returned to acting full-time, most notably appearing in the TV miniseries "Roots" and starring in the sci-fi series "Battlestar Galactica", as well as narrating numerous documentaries.

"Black Beauty", the never-before-released masterpiece by Arthur Lee’s legendary band Love. Chosen as one of Time Magazine’s most anticipated releases, critics are hailing the album as an instant classic. Black Beauty is that rarest of rock artifacts: an un-released, full-length studio album, from an undisputed musical genius. It represents the missing link in a catalog that also includes Forever Changes, the seminal 1967 Love album the New York Times called “one of the most affecting and beguiling albums of all time.” With Black Beauty, Arthur Lee manages to combine searing ’70’s rock with gorgeous melodies and stellar songwriting – topped off by his most distinctive, snarling, soulful vocals ever. With unparalleled sound, and a wonderfully eclectic collection of songs, the album offers Love fans a rare glimpse into a previously undocumented phase of Arthur Lee’s career, while shining a light for new fans to discover the unique genius that is the music of Arthur Lee and Love.

Ex-husband Andrew Lloyd Webber's Really Useful Records can be accused of scraping the bottom of the barrel in its second compilation of old Sarah Brightman tracks released to take advantage of the singer's international popularity due to her albums Time to Say Goodbye, Eden, and La Luna, all recorded for a different company. Happily, even the bottom of the barrel contains some excellent material, even after the cream was skimmed off with The Andrew Lloyd Webber Collection. During and after her marriage to Lloyd Webber, Brightman performed on the Original London Cast recording of The Phantom of the Opera and recorded the albums The Songs That Got Away (1989) and Surrender (1995), and that's the material sampled here, that is, the remaining tracks that weren't used on The Andrew Lloyd Webber Collection.
