Ispirato al non detto di Orgoglio e pregiudizio, Longbourn House ricostruisce con tono brioso la vita della servitú nell'Inghilterra di inizio Ottocento, facendo emergere tra le righe la fatica e le disuguaglianze su cui si reggeva il bel mondo. All'interno di questo affresco storico, che oltre alla campagna dell'Hertfordshire include la Spagna sconvolta dalle guerre napoleoniche e i porti commerciali sull'altra sponda dell'Atlantico, Jo Baker dona pensieri ed emozioni autentici alle ombre che nel celebre romanzo di Jane Austen si limitavano a passare sullo sfondo rapide e silenziose. *** «Un trionfo: uno splendido tributo all'originale austeniano ma, quel che piú conta, una gioia in sé. Longbourn House riesce nel difficile compito di stimolare l'intelletto mentre scalda il cuore». «The Guardian» «Alcuni scrittori ti fanno capire che sei in buone mani fin da subito, e Jo Baker è tra questi». «The Independent»

The quality of Chet Baker's product was so varied during the last decade or more of his life that recording sessions varied markedly. For this "remixed version" of Mr. B Baker sounds a tad tired, though his chops are in fine form. The studio recording captures the trumpeter with highly sympathetic and self-effacing pianist Michel Grallier and bassist Ricardo Del Fra, both of whom engage in the leader's brand of sensitivity. There are no vocals by the trumpeter, but plenty of improvising. The interesting tune selection features a few songs played often by Baker (such as Wayne Shorter's "Dolphin Dance" and Horace Silver's "Strollin'"), but several that are not associated with him at all (Grallier's "White Blues" and his gorgeous "Father X-mas," to name a couple). There is a sadness permeating the trumpeter's sound throughout, exacerbated by the lazy, sometimes sluggish, tempos. A deep and touching beauty can be felt, marking this as one of Chet's best from the period.

Genre: Action

Good Shaolin monk story. Actually contains some interesting Buddhist thought. Martial arts directed by Yuen Biao, and it shows. Impressive wu shu performances throughout. Lengthy training scenes, excellent finale. Story has a dead spot in the middle in which the hero (the annointed Shaolin successor) wanders the country in disguise and saves a town from being overrun by bandits.

Chamber music has always formed the heart of Maria João Pires’s musicianship. Indeed, she has often commented that she is happier working with others than performing on her own. “Not sharing a stage is very difficult for me,” she once remarked (in an interview for ArtsJournal in 2012) “You are apart from the group, apart from community, apart from everything. You become different and special. And, if you become different and special, you’re alone.”
