The Piano Quintet in A minor is "grand" in more ways than one. It lasts more than 37 minutes. Each movement possesses its own fascination. The first offers heaving, swelling romantic music and engages all the instruments in daunting fashion. The second is a haunting, relentless scherzo that starts off with a lighter sound to build suspense. The slow third, major key movement starts off in rather saccharine style but turns persuasive in its own way.

From the 19th century African music gatherings in Congo Square to the birth of jazz and its offshoots, New Orleans is one of America's most important music cities, and with the Rough Guide to the Music of New Orleans collection, listeners get a well-rounded taste of the Crescent City's musical gumbo. The collection touches on traditional jazz torchbearers (Dr. Michael White), classic R&B (Jessie Hill, Earl King), down-home funk (the Meters), Mardi Gras-ready brass players (Kermit Ruffins, Hot 8 Brass Band), global-influenced groovers (Los Hombres Calientes), and artists on the rise (Papa Grows Funk). While it's impossible to capture the full spectrum of New Orleans music on a single disc – women artists are underrepresented, and the NOLA hip-hop scene that's emerged since the 1990s is skipped entirely – this Rough Guide is a spirited introduction, and as a bonus is accompanied by a second disc featuring emerging heavy funk purveyors Dumpstaphunk.

Alarm Will Sound's recording of Steve Reich's monumental orchestral/choral works The Desert Music and Tehillim, released on the Cantaloupe label in 2002, greatly benefits from the group's close connections with the composer: the ensemble's conductor, Alan Pierson, and several of the performers studied at the Eastman School with Brad Lubman, a conductor frequently enlisted by Reich. Also, Pierson's arrangements, which reconcile the chamber and orchestral versions that exist for both works, were prepared in close consultation with the composer; thus, this may well be the definitive recording of these pieces. Brilliantly sonorous in their climaxes – the burst of light near the end of Desert Music, the "Alleluias" that close Tehillim – the players also articulate Reich's intricate canonic textures with nimble precision. Voices and strings are always an Achilles heel within Reich's percussive textures (leading him to eliminate part doublings in favor of giving each line to a lone, amplified performer), but here the singers and strings maintain an impressive rhythmic vitality. This knack for precision carries over to the pristine recording, as well, which, for good or ill, was digitally recorded and heavily edited. Still, it makes up in energy and clarity what it might lack in performative spontaneity.

A master of the alternative healing arts, particularly relaxation, Kevin Kendle uses music to affect the moods of his listeners in positive ways, inspiring a sense of calmness and serenity. The English-born multi-instrumentalist has created scores for various British productions, ranging from theater to television, and has also recorded numerous albums for New World Music, a Colorado-based new age label, beginning with Clouds in November 1999. The album proved successful, and Kendle followed with a similar effort, Flowers, in 2001. In addition, he recorded relaxation-themed albums for New World – Pure Peace (2000) and Pure Dreaming (2001) – and also contributed a volume to the label's Mind-Body-Soul series, Tarot (2000). In 2002 New World issued Music for Yoga: Relaxing Yoga, a one-hour Kendle recording intended as a soundtrack to slow-flow or "liquid" yoga

Floyd Cramer's known as a studio genius who's especially great in an intimate setting – but here are two albums that feature the legendary pianist in very different modes! First up is "Floyd Cramer With The Music City Pops" – a set that has Floyd's piano in front of the Nashville orchestra – who soar and glide along in these ways that are maybe even more upbeat than some of Cramer's usual material – even though the lineup features lots of strings and woodwinds. Second is "Floyd Cramer In Concert" - a compelling live album – with Floyd playing in front of an audience, but still recorded in all the best up-close modes of his other records.
