Essential: A masterpiece of Progressive-Folk music
The Young Tradition was formed on 18 April 1965 by Peter Bellamy (8 September 1944 – 19 September 1991), Royston Wood (born 1935 died 8 April 1990) and Heather Wood (born Arielle Heather Wood, 31 March 1945, Attercliffe, Sheffield, Yorkshire) (who was unrelated to Royston Wood). Most of their repertoire was traditional British folk music, sung without instrumental accompaniment, and was drawn especially from the music of the Copper Family from Sussex, who had a strong oral musical tradition. They augmented the pure folk music with some composed songs which were strongly rooted in the English folk tradition, such as sea shanties written by Cyril Tawney, of which “Chicken on a Raft” was the most notable.
Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Pianist Jay McShann has spent much of his career being classified as a blues pianist when in fact he is a flexible swing stylist. On this excellent release, McShann appears with two groups of all-stars. His original "Crazy Legs and Friday Strut" and "Georgia on My Mind" find him joined by Herbie Mann (on flute and tenor), baritonist Gerry Mulligan and a rhythm section that includes guitarist John Scofield. The other selections (two standards, Duke Ellington's "Blue Feeling" and McShann's own "Jumpin' the Blues") are performed by an octet also featuring Mann, altoist Earle Warren, trumpeter Doc Cheatham, trombonist Dicky Wells and Scofield. The unusual grouping of swing, bop and modern stylists is successful (the material is pretty basic) and Janis Siegel's guest appearance for a vocal duet with McShann on "Ain't Misbehavin'" works.
Essential: A masterpiece of progressive rock music.
Yet another stupendous artwork sleeve depicting some nightmarish scene with creatures that Salvadore Dali imitating Jerome Bosch would’ve drawn slightly different, but the effect is there – I just wish that the full “picture” was presented once in its entirety. Although still strongly influenced by Flamenco music, this album draws more from symphonic rock and lacks a bit the dramatics present on El Patio, but also the inspiration. The remasters are impeccable, but be sure to get one of them because I found some rather poor earlier pressings still on the market.
Autores Chilenos is the sixth official album of the Chilean Andean-Folk band Inti-Illimani, published in 1971. The album is a sort of homage to the Chilean Authors who initiated the movement of the New Chilean Song. On July 1, 2003, around the multiple re-editions and remasters of Inti-Illimani LP records, Warner Music Chile re-released the CD and merged it with the album A la Revolución Mexicana, originally edited in 1969.
