After the success of the first fourteen reissues, which restored to the limelight some of the gems of the early music repertory in the catalogues of our labels, here are fourteen new titles to allow listeners to renew acquaintance with further treasures of the Renaissance and Baroque (and even a journey through time thanks to Raphaël Imbert’s album Bach Coltrane), performed by some of the leading interpreters of the genre; most of these discs won one or more awards on their first release.

A professional musician at a very early age, Alain Caron is a considerably accomplished bass player. He attended the Berklee College of Music. One of his first excursions into jazz was playing with the Vic Vogel Big Band during the 1970s. In 1977 he co-founded the group UZEB. Their first album, Live in Bracknell, was released in 1981. The following year saw the group putting out Fast Emotion. The next album was 1984's You Be Easy. 1985 saw them release Between the Lines. Two more live albums, Live a l'Olympia and Absolutely Live came out in 1986. The group released Noisy Nights and Live in Europe in 1988. The following year saw the release of UZEB Club. World Tour '90 was released in 1990. In 1992, Caron formed his own group, le Band and released the first album by that group, Alain Caron – le Band.

Genre: Fusion, Jazz-Funk

Critics of funky, R&B-flavored jazz and fusion argue that electric jazz cannot swing, but in fact, electric bassist Alain Caron swings hard on the electric Play. Backed by his Montreal-based outfit Le Band, the French-Canadian improviser brings a lot of passion to this CD. A diverse effort that emphasizes Caron's own compositions, Play ranges from groove-oriented soul-jazz ("P.A.C. Man," "D-CODE") to fusion pieces that can be abstract ("In & Out," "B 12") or sentimental ("Apres la pluie," "Ton Jardin"). The only songs on the album that Caron didn't write himself are Leni Stern's cerebral "Trouble" and John Coltrane's often-recorded "Impressions," which gets an unusual funk-jazz treatment.

La Horde du Contrevent - Alain Damasio
French | 2007 | 736 Pages | ISBN: 2070342263 | EPUB | 1.84 MB

Un groupe d'élite, formé dès l'enfance à faire face, part des confins d'une terre féroce, saignée de rafales, pour aller chercher l'origine du vent. Ils sont vingt-trois, un bloc, un nœud de courage : la Horde. Ils sont pilier, ailier, traceur, aéromaître et géomaître, feuleuse et sourcière, troubadour et scribe. Ils traversent leur monde debout, à pied, en quête d'un Extrême-Amont qui fuit devant eux comme un horizon fou…

En 2009, le groupe d’André Ceccarelli avec Diego Imbert à la basse et Pierre-Alain Goualch au piano invite David Linx pour l’enregistrement d’un hommage à Claude Nougaro. Le trio se transforme alors en quartet très soudé comme l’ont prouvé les nombreux concerts donnés dans la foulée par les quatre musiciens. Ces 7000 Miles témoignent aussi de cette complicité totale. Même si la voix de Linx est la locomotive du projet, le trio de Ceccarelli n’est évidemment pas là juste pour la déco. Au contraire. L’organe élastique du chanteur bruxellois fait corps avec la musique de ses partenaires.

Estonian composer Arvo Pärt’s four symphonies tell the story of his musical life. It’s a tale bookended by the skittish and uncompromising Symphony No. 1, written while he was a student in 1963, and the Fourth from 2008—a beautifully sculpted masterpiece in his own “tintinnabuli” style in which textures rise, fall, and repeat like pealing bells. Much more than fine recordings of fascinating works, these are ideal performances directed by one of Pärt’s most trusted conductors, compatriot Tõnu Kaljuste. Listen out for the beautiful oases amid the noise in the final movement of Symphony No. 2 and the chant-infused Symphony No. 3, containing moments of pure beauty.

Odile Jacob | 2008 | ISBN: 2738100732/2738119239 | French | EPUB | 267 pages | 2.1 MB

Les mathématiques et la biologie se trouvent aux deux extrémités du spectre de la science. D'un côté la rigueur logique, débarrassée de toute contingence matérielle, de l'autre une science d'observation, profondément tributaire de savoir-faire techniques et de concepts moraux. Ce livre d'entretiens tente de créer une passerelle entre ces disciplines que tout éloigne. Les deux auteurs, tous deux académiciens et professeurs au Collège de France, s'interrogent sur la nature de la pensée, l'existence des objets mathématiques ou le rapport entre le cerveau et les machines. …

Desmond Morris, "Le singe nu"

Non, déclare le zoologiste Desmond Morris, nous ne sommes pas une espèce nouvelle née du processus de l'évolution, nous sommes toujours des singes. Et il le démontre.Eliminant les sociétés primitives encore existantes comme étant des « ratés de l'évolution », il observe le singe nu moderne, arboricole, sorti des forêts et devenu carnivore, sous l'angle de la sexualité, de l'éducation, de la combativité et de la recherche du confort (où il assimile hardiment la quête des poux chez les primates aux menus propos mondains dans un effet scientifico-comique irrésistible)…

Alain Gillot - Una scacchiera nel cervello

Quando sua sorella sbarca a Sedan e gli affida il figlio di tredici anni per qualche settimana, Vincent si sente messo con le spalle al muro. Uomo solitario che ha rotto da tempo i ponti con la famiglia d'origine, non ama troppo i ragazzini, anche se di mestiere fa l'allenatore per la locale squadra di calcio giovanile. Come rapportarsi con quel nipote che rifugge ogni contatto e passa la notte a giocare a scacchi? E come reagirà Léonard nei confronti di quello zio sconosciuto, lui che al minimo gesto o parola imprevista va nel panico più assoluto? "Una scacchiera nel cervello" è la storia di un uomo che non si aspetta più niente dalla vita e le cui certezze, in seguito al miracolo di un incontro, stanno per andare in pezzi. Nel tentativo di tirare fuori dal suo isolamento un ragazzino che si rivela affetto dalla sindrome di Asperger, anche Vincent potrebbe aprirsi di nuovo al mondo e superare le ferite familiari.
