Michael Henderson's solo debut Solid brought immediate recognition to the longtime backing vocalist/musician. The mesmerizing ballad "Be My Girl" was the first release, and it propelled Henderson to number 23 on the R&B charts. (He later produced the same song for the Dramatics.) Composed by Henderson, "Valentine Love" is an even more indelible ballad. The spirited, seductive sax introduction bows to a poetic narrative and a smooth rhythm in which Henderson gives a ample vocal exhibition. The single was originally featured on Norman Connors' Saturday Night Special album, with Henderson sharing lead vocal duties with Jean Carne.

Anno 2033: la Meritocrazia è al potere. La nuova classe dirigente governa grazie a riforme economiche e sociali ispirate al principio dell'uguaglianza delle opportunità e dell'intelligenza misurata scientificamente. Ma anziché produrre un sistema democratico maggiormente realizzato, il risultato è una nuova società di casta in cui la grande maggioranza è umiliata ancora più sottilmente. E per questo, infine, si rivolta. Con quest'opera di fanta-sociologia Michael Young inventava nel 1958 la parola "meritocrazia", in irriverente opposizione a un'esaltazione ideologica del principio del merito, proiettando così nel futuro, con esiti inaspettati e sinistri, una delle tendenze più invocate del nostro tempo.

The roles featured on this CD are, in more ways than one, truly great ones; the vocal and interpretational demands on the artist are of an equally high calibre. The fact, as J. M. Fischer writes in the booklet text, that the term 'heroic baritone' has established itself in connection with these roles is recognition of the highly technical challenges – and simultaneously an understatement. The parallels with Wagnerʼs 'heroic tenor roles' can be seen in the truly supreme vocal challenges, and yet the bass-baritone protagonistʼs role in each of these works also demands even greater control of the dramatic character and, therefore, a more complex musical approach. The enduring fascination of these demanding roles can also be sought in their 'tragic awareness'.

While Nabatov and Sarin met over 30 years ago (as participants of the famous Banff Jazz Workshop), the Johnson-Nabatov connection clocks at 3 years tops. Fortunately, this is hardly a primary factor in jazz and improvised music - often some of the finer moments result from spontaneous sessions or concerts. This is certainly true of this recording, made in NYC one day after the trio premiered in Brooklyn's venerable venue, IBeam. In spite of being freely improvised, the five pieces demonstrate a high level of cohesive thinking as a collective, the proposed ideas propagating and forms unfolding in convincingly natural fashion.

Summerland è un posto magico, dove non piove mai. Il sole splende sempre in un cielo azzurrissimo sopra il prato più smeraldino che si possa immaginare. Il posto ideale per giocare a baseball. Ethan Feld, però, a costo di deludere il suo papà, non vuole più vedere una mazza da baseball in vita sua. Lui è il peggior giocatore di baseball della storia. O almeno è convinto di esserlo. Ma non può mollare tutto, proprio no. Perché lui è il prescelto dai Vicini, alias il Piccolo Popolo, alias i folletti, alias i Ferisher, per guidare la squadra di baseball che dovrà sfidare e battere Coyote. Età di lettura: da 10 anni.
