The Big Picture finds Elton John in strong form, turning in a by-now-predictable collection of ballads and pop songs designed to appeal to the adult contemporary audience. The difference is inspiration. With Made in England, John and his collaborator Bernie Taupin showed signs of life, and they continue that winning streak here…

Specialty Profiles album by John Lee Hooker was released Aug 29, 2006 on the Specialty label. John Lee Hooker recorded for many record labels during his long career. Specialty Profiles songs But this sampling of some of his Specialty sides finds him at his best, on tracks like his much-recorded "Boogie Chillen No.2," the simmering "I'm Mad," the brooding "Nothin' But Trouble," and the risque "Grinder Man." Featuring many solo cuts (the artist's idiosyncratic timing defeated most accompanists), these quality sides display Hooker in his prime.

Nick grew up on the south side of Chicago hanging out in the mid-50’s with a coterie of misfit white kids – Elvin Bishop, Paul Butterfield, Michael Bloomfield – who went on to form that protean powerhouse of watershed white blues, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Learning their lessons first-hand from the south side greats – Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Otis Rush – Gravenites & Co. burst open the seams of the scene with a feverish intensity and undeniable authenticity, redefining the blues with as much impact as the introduction of electric instrumentation had 15 years earlier. From the late 50’s through the mid 60’s, Gravenites gravitated between Chicago and San Francisco, establishing himself in the Bay Area in 1965.

Label: Chandos | Tracks: 58 | Time: 58:34 min

Among all the many Chandos brass recordings, each release having played a major role in the labels successful history, this one may well be the loudest. In the vast acoustic of St Judes Church, London, rendered in surround-sound, and in the largest ensemble format to which it has ever expanded, Onyx Brass, under the energetic direction of John Wilson, brings together four dozen fanfares by fourteen British composers of the past century and a half. Including works by Arnold, Bax, Bliss, Imogen Holst Ketèlbey, and Tippett with numerous premiere recordings, this album is an unmissable celebration of stirring, brilliant, joyous, exciting, varied, sometimes military, and always optimistic music.

This is one of Steve Marcus' best all-around recordings. Alternating barnburning versions of "Oleo," "Confirmation," and "Woody'n You" with ballads, Marcus tends to play the slower pieces on his lyrical soprano, saving the romps for his passionate tenor. Backed by pianist John Hicks, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith, Marcus is consistently brilliant within the bebop tradition, although McBride's bowed bass solo on "Confirmation" almost steals the show.

Le 28 juin 1839, l' Amistad faisait voile depuis La Havane avec à son bord une cargaison d'esclaves. Au cours de cette nuit sans lune, les captifs africains se soulevèrent, tuèrent le capitaine et prirent le contrôle du navire. Alors qu'ils essayaient d'atteindre un port sûr, leur navire fut arrêté par la Marine des États-Unis et les rebelles furent incarcérés dans une prison du Connecticut. …
