Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and six-time GRAMMY-winner Dr. John is New Orleans' most prominent living musical icon. The embodiment of his hometown's freewheeling creative spirit and multiple musical traditions, he's built a visionary, idiosyncratic body of work that's deeply rooted in the Crescent City's myriad Blues, R&B, Jazz and Rock 'N' Roll traditions. So it's fitting that Dr. John's August 19, 2014 debut on Concord Records, Ske-Dat-De-Dat…The Spirit Of Satch, pays heartfelt tribute to another larger-than-life New Orleans legend: the seminal trumpeter and vocalist Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong, whose musical innovations created the template for 20th-century jazz, and whose playful attitude and life-embracing spirit made him a beloved figure whose worldwide appeal transcended music.

Baden Powell (1796-1860) was a mathematician who held the Savilian Chair of Geometry at Oxford, and was also a priest in the Church of England. He was a defender of the claims of new scientific discoveries in the face of Christian orthodoxy well before Darwin published the theory of evolution, and drew a clear distinction in his thinking and writing between moral and physical phenomena, as being independent of each other and the fields of completely different study.

Making changes in a trio can be risky a thing. If there's a special chemistry in a group, the slightest change in the lineup could spoil the magic of the music. For years, pianist John Law has had an effective formula with his Art of Sound Trio, with drummer Asaf Sirkis and bassist Sam Burgess, but Three Leaps of the Gazelle announces a significant change: Burgess is replaced by bassist Yuri Goloubev, a virtuoso musician and an old acquaintance of the pianist. Fortunately, this change only adds to the qualities of the music.

The Spirit of International Law
David J. Bederman | ISBN: 0820328731 | PDF | 294 pages | English | 8 MB

"A perceptive work of integrity and sincerity." - American Journal of International Law

As our society becomes more global, international law is taking on an increasingly significant role, not only in world politics but also in the affairs of a striking array of individuals, enterprises, and institutions. In this comprehensive study, David J. Bederman focuses on international law as a current, practical means of regulating and influencing international behavior. He shows it to be a system unique in its nature-nonterritorial but secular, cosmopolitan, and traditional. Part intellectual history and part contemporary review, The Spirit of International Law ranges across the series of cyclical processes and dialectics in international law over the past five centuries to assess its current prospects as a viable legal system.

The Futures of Old Age is thought-provoking reading for anyone studying aging, especially for those attending courses in gerontology and related areas, as well as for those concerned with the development of social and economic policy.

"You can't judge a book…" And, sure enough, although Scottish fiddler John McCusker appears on the cover of this album sporting what seems to be a tufted mohawk haircut, this is not the goofy Celtic-pop fusion-fest such a picture might imply. Rather, it's a sweet set of original, inventive instrumental fiddle tunes (and one gorgeous vocal number featuring his ever-lovely partner, Kate Rusby)… A simple, understated album, and one that successfully sheds the sometimes-dour sensibilities of his old group, the Battlefield Band. Recommended! (Amazon customer)

If ever there were a recording that should be played in small doses, it's this one! Alan Hovhaness' serene, metaphysical, meditative music can send you into a near trance-state or, depending on the work, into a rage. Working with the principles of oriental art and mysticism, Hovhaness creates musical cells of exquisite beauty and then, coming from that same paradigm, repeats them seemingly endlessly. To some western ears, particularly mine, this can become tiresome unless I'm sitting in the lotus position. So taking these pieces one at a time, I have to say that the Spirit of the Trees, a sonata for harp and guitar, begins in an atmosphere of haunting beauty. It does go on a bit long, but that's okay, as long you stop the CD there. Otherwise, it's all going to start sounding the same pretty quickly. The remaining works are shorter and hold your attention more easily, especially the fascinating Upon Enchanted Ground for Flute, Cello, Giant Tam-Tam, and Harp. Talk about fun! Hovhaness is a wonderful composer for percussion, especially exotic percussion. But, this is a harp disc, and I'm pleased to report that Yolanda Kondonassis is completely in command of the style of these works, effectively conveying various moods through use of color and often subtle articulation techniques. Telarc's magical recording places you in the same space as the performers. This is a fine recording, really. Just remember, unless you're into all-day chanting at an Ashram, put plenty of space between the selections.

Blues, Rock‘n’Roll and all that Jazz: a musical autobiography that represents a fascinating cross-section from the glittering career and from the passionate life of producer Siggi Loch - for his 75th birthday. Right at the start of his career, he had the dream of running his own jazz label, and he has now fulfilled that dream. ACT has been voted label of the year four times in a row at the German ECHO awards, and in 2015 alone, its artists and releases garnered eight ECHOs: the label has achieved international renown. However this CD collection is a snapshot of where things are, a provisional taking of stock to mark and to celebrate Siggi Loch's 75th birthday.
