Award-winning and much decorated composer Claude Baker here entwines his evocative soundworld with the powerful imagery of two great poets. Recorded in its premiere performance with Marc-André Hamelin as soloist, the Piano Concerto From Noon to Starry Night draws on and amplifies the structures and meanings of five poems by Walt Whitman, expressing the heroism and darkness of war, exuberant celebrations of nature and a wistful remembrance of things past. Aus Schwanengesang is a memorial piece that expands and re-composes the poignant Heine Lieder from Schuberts song cycle with oblique and multi-layered references.

Recorded in 1972 and released in 1973 with Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clarke, and Jack DeJohnette, Joe Farrell's Moon Germs was a foray into the electric side of jazz. On the opener, "Great George," Farrell leads off with the hint of a melody before careening into legato streams of thought along striated intervallic paths. DeJohnette is like a machine gun, quadruple-timing the band as Clarke moves against the grain in a series of fours and eights, and Hancock's attempts to keep the entire thing anchored are almost for naught. On the title track there is more of a funk backdrop, but the complex, angular runs and insane harmonic reaches Farrell attempts on his soprano, crack, falter, and ultimately turn into something else; the sheer busy-ness of the track is dazzling.

The recording represents a deepening of the approach Baker has pursued since his 2004 debut album Mercy: lyrics pared down to their essence set against the spare backdrop of folk-rock instruments used in a chamber-music way. But there are a few new twists as well. Working in Nashville for the first time with producer Neilson Hubbard, Baker uses the 50s-jazz trumpet playing of Don Mitchell and the sustained guitar textures of Will Kimbrough (producer/guitarist for Rodney Crowell and Todd Snider) to frame the lyrics with a kind of chamber-music folk-rock and to break up the ten vocal numbers with five cinematic-sounding instrumental interludes.

The track that gives this album its deceptively ominous titl comes at its very end, after nearly an hour filled with sound and fury, light and darkness, joy and foreboding, controlled chaos and serendipitous serenity - all those qualities (and the many more) that Ivo Perelman and his cohorts have learned to coax from their instruments. But rather than strain the leash or burst the seams, the piece titled 'Breaking Point' serves as an inward-looking finale - a concluding meditation rather than a celebratory scherzo.

A collaborative album of glitchy ambient guitar drone with French duo Ultra Milkmaids, originally released on Infraction Records.
According to their website, Ultra Milkmaids have been around for over ten years, starting as a punk band and slowly evolving towards instrumental rock and hazier musical ventures that has culminated on this disc with Aidan Baker, someone that should be familiar if proper attention has been paid. The disc begins as though a blanket is being drawn across the sky and an eternal night is ready to spread its jaw over the world - the music is sleepy and soft, buzzing with the warmth of dying guitars…

Before delving into the music on this collection, it's important to offer a note of caution to Chet Baker fans: Italian Movies is not a really a compilation of the trumpeter's work, so much as a series of film scores by the great composer Piero Umiliani between 1958 and 1964 on which he is featured either as a soloist or as part of the orchestra. It might better have been marketed to Umiliani fans, but it's tough to fault label Moochin' About for a little creative license when repackaging a previous issue of this music that appeared on Liuto Records – that one was co-billed to the pair. Other than on disc three – where Baker doesn't get to solo until track nine in the score for 1962's Smog, yet is still featured for 20 minutes – there is plenty of him to go around as he works amid his Italian contemporaries.
