Xan is one half of The Omega Syndicate so as you would expect this album is sequencer dominated but the tracks are shorter and more structured. We begin with the ominously titled 'Dark Angel'. A sequence rises and falls in pitch through the mix. A second one joins it, as does a powerful bass rhythm. This is very exciting stuff which got my whole body moving within seconds of the track's start. A lead line flashes over the top then even more rhythm is introduced as things reach fever pitch. Additional sequences come and go. It is amazing how much is packed into under ten minutes. A superb opener. 'Psy-Gamma' is straight into a rather Jarre-ish groove with delicate leads hinting at Vangelis hitting the spot beautifully. Another sequence is added and things take a somewhat meaner turn.

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. A nice little set from Monty Alexander – a Sunday Night session recorded with the same group, on the same weekend as his Saturday Night album! Monty Alexander's always great in a trio, but we really love the pianist when he's trying to add a little something extra to the mix – as he does here in a quartet performance that features some nice added percussion from Robert Thomas! The tracks have that warm glow and open flow that Alexander first started bringing to his music in the 70s – with sensitive rhythm work here from Reggie Johnson on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – but the added percussion really helps things swing at a slightly higher level, giving a gentle kick to some cuts, while Monty's still able to open up with some warmly lyrical lines over the top.

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. A great little date from pianist Monty Alexander – a set that's maybe got a bit more bite than some of Monty's American records from the time – even though this overseas release was still recorded in Florida! The core trio also features added percussion – which provides a stronger rhythmic impulse than usual, and which has the group really stretching out on some longer tunes – especially the album's version of "Since My Baby Left Me", which features guest cornet from Nat Adderley! The group on the rest of the record features Alexander on piano, Reggie Johnson on bass, Ed Thigpen on drums, and Robert Thomas Jr. on percussion.

La-La Land Records, Sony Music Entertainment and Paramount Pictures boldly go where no soundtrack reissue has gone before with this deluxe 3-CD set of 1979's STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, composed and conducted by Jerry Goldsmith. The first big screen voyage of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock was a high budget and ambitious undertaking that introduced Goldsmith's famous and enduring Star Trek march (later used as the main theme for Star Trek: The Next Generation) as the cornerstone of an epic science fiction musical odyssey. This 3-CD set presents the score for the 1979 theatrical release (filling disc 1 and part of disc 2) and also premieres the legendary early "rejected" cues that Goldsmith recorded prior to composing his famous main theme. The 1979 album program (much of which is performed and edited differently as compared to the film) completes disc 2, with disc 3 offering additional alternates (including those heard on the previous Sony expanded release) along with a wealth of bonus material.
