La Follia Salzburg was founded in 1986 by a number of young musicians from Austria and Germany. From their very first appearances, the ensemble was well received by both press and public, and has established a reputation in Austria and southern Germany. In 1990 La Follia Salzburg was the prizewinner in the Musica Antiqua (Bruges) competition, and they have toured in Switzerland, Poland, France, and Holland (including the International Festival of Early Music in Utrecht). The ensemble’s repertoire is centered around Baroque chamber music, with special emphasis on works of Austrian seventeenth century composers such as J.H. Schmelzer, Heinrich I. F. Biber, or Romanus Weichlein. They play on period instruments in order to approach the tonal color and performance practice of the time as closely as possible.
In the path of successful compilations such as the Progressive Rock Trilogy, Punk Trilogy and Heavy Metal Trilogy, Music Brokers presents Glam Rock Trilogy, a wonderful three-disc album that summarizes all the splendor of the style that influenced much of British rock, from punk through Brit pop to techno pop. As a cultural and musical style, glam rock was born in 1971, with the release of the song Ride A White Swan by T. Rex. From that moment forward, there arose a veritable fever which invariably topped the European charts. Artists such as David Bowie, Alice Cooper, Roxy Music, Slade, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, New York Dolls, Suzi Quatro, Glitter Band, The Sweet, Mott, Cockney Rebel…
Grover Washington, Jr., has long been one of the leaders in what could be called rhythm & jazz, essentially R&B-influenced jazz. Winelight is one of his finest albums, and not primarily because of the Bill Withers hit "Just the Two of Us." It is the five instrumentals that find Washington (on soprano, alto, and tenor) really stretching out. If he had been only interested in sales, Washington's solos could have been half as long and he would have stuck closely to the melody. Instead he really pushes himself on some of these selections, particularly the title cut. A memorable set of high-quality and danceable soul-jazz.
"A bad dream (Un mal sueño) is the fifth album of Triana. Launched in 1981 the band began to enter professional crisis and the sound of it compared with previous work dramatically turned festive and poppy, which did not suit them.."
"Sixth and last album of the spanish group Triana. When it seemed that the group returned to the brilliance of his early days, a fatal accident ends the life of Jesús.
What a pity, Jesús, what a pity."
"Santana is the debut studio album by the San Francisco rock group Santana released in 1969. It is a release of largely instrumental music, recorded by what was originally a purely free-form jam band. At the suggestion of manager Bill Graham, the band took to writing more conventional songs for more impact, but managed to retain the essence of improvisation in the music."
"Triana was a Spanish progressive rock band from the 70's and early 80's, heavily influenced by flamenco, hailing from Andalusia. It was composed of Jesús de la Rosa Luque (voice and keyboards), Eduardo Rodríguez Rodway (voice and guitar) and Juan José Palacios "Tele" (drums and percussion)."
