After the dissolution of Savage Grace, John Seanor and Ron Koss released this album with the help of King Errisson (congas, percussion), John Seiter (drums), and John Sebastian (harmonica). The album is described by timeshifter at RYM as “semi-funky A.O.R. with some bluesy cuts, some horns and harmonica, Jagger influenced vocals, decent song writing, and some rural moves”.
In the '80s, Jethro Tull was no longer the dominant force on the rock scene they had been throughout much of the previous decade, but the indomitable Ian Anderson continued to make ambitious records based on themes of ages past, even in an era of skinny ties and drum machines. BROADSWORD AND THE BEAST has a marked swords-and-sorcery motif; Anderson is depicted as a winged elfin creature on the cover. Despite such leanings, producer Paul Samwell-Smith–original bassist for the Yardbirds–gives the record a modern gloss, weaving the synthesizer playing of Peter-John Vettesse and the out-sized guitars of Tull stalwart Martin Barre through BROADSWORD's vaguely medieval-sounding romps.
Will listeners raised on virtuoso performances of Mozart’s piano concertos be able to make room in the hearts for Christian Zacharias’ recordings with the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne? It depends on how willing they are to forego the pleasures of virtuosity for the pleasures music-making. This is not to say that Zacharias isn’t a virtuoso pianist. As his 20 years of recordings make very clear, he has talents & abilities far beyond those of most mortal pianists.
Soul Vibration #001 (2005). Soul Vibrations is a collection of rarely heard musical gems, the ones that cross the boundaries of distinct categorisation with a fusion of styles that makes each one greater than the sum of its parts. Soul Vibrations Vol 1, the first down-tempo release from Liquid Records, is a result of much time spent selectively searching amongst the movers and shakers in London's electronic and alternative music scene today. After many years of putting on festivals and exclusive music and arts-based events, the label founder James Anthony (aka Liquid Djems) - an established DJ in London and internationally, has put together his years of experience, talent and considerable contact list of producers and artists to create this exciting venture…
The first new studio recording in almost ten years by one of the most exhilarating ensembles in the ever growing Masada family. Together since 1994, their breathtaking virtuosity, extraordinary passion and telepathic interplay has increased over the years and now their performances set a new standard for excitement, concentration and commitment. Performing thirteen new compositions from Zorn’s legendary Book of Angels, these three brilliant musicians, under the “baton” of the composer himself present a varied program of delicate lyricism, poignant ballads and driving blasts of energy. New music for the new millennium drawing upon classical, jazz and gypsy folk traditions through the postmodern lens of Radical Jewish Culture.
