Bossa nova is not unfamiliar to Diana Krall, but 2009's Quiet Nights is her first record devoted to the gently swaying rhythm. Teaming up again with arranger Claus Ogerman, who last worked with Krall on 2001's The Look of Love and who also frequently collaborated with bossa nova godfather Antonio Carlos Jobim, Krall winds up with a mellow, lazy album that recalls the relaxed late-night sophistication of Jobim's duet album with Frank Sinatra, which Ogerman also happened to arrange and conduct. It's not just the sound, it's the songs: how '60s standards like Bacharach/David's "Walk on By" sit next to three Jobim tunes, a song by Marcos Valle ("So Nice"), and a few American Songbook standards placed at the beginning, the better to ease listeners into purer bossa nova at the end.

An amalgamation of swampy blues, jazz and rock - all mixed and recorded in a sparse, bloomy and eerie sort of way. This recording is just so damn fine, so airy and warm. And the musician's aboard on this Dennis Hopper film are a who's who, including Miles Davis, John Lee Hooker, Taj Mahal, Roy Rodgers, Earl Palmer and Tim Drummond. This has long been a highly sought after and collectible album among audiophiles. A true demonstration record.

Ostara is the title of the second album by The Wishing Tree, a project by Marillion's guitarist Steve Rothery and singer Hannah Stobart. 10 years after the debut release Carnival Of Souls, the follow-up album Ostara was released on 23. March, 2009. Written and recorded in opposite corners of the world, the songs of Ostara were born in two places: Hannah's log cabin at the foot of a mountain in California and Steve's home studio in rural Buckinghamshire, England. These two backdrops have produced a family of tracks that boast a unique identity. American grassroots have crept into the bands otherwise English folk-inspired style!

This is a first part to a 2 part E.P. series of unreleased tracks from the "Tightly Unwound" sessions. The first track is a smoother, softer version of the "Tightly Wound" track from the album and it is also edited down one minute shorter than the album track. The parts edited out are mostly instrumental repeats and may not be very noticeable that they are not there. "The West Coast" is a mostly acoustic song, very short and not much of a standout, on the 2nd half you get the nice Pineapple Thief harmonies and then it's over quickly.

Daß Partitur und Partitur nicht dasselbe ist, mag eine Binsenweisheit sein, eine folgenreiche allerdings. Im Zeitalter nicht nur der Verwissenschaftlichung der Noten-Edition, sondern auch der historischen Aufführungspraxis droht selbst wissenschaftlich fundierten Gesamtausgaben das „Verfallsdatum“: neue Erkenntnisse, neue Schriftdeutungen, das Auffinden verschollen geglaubter Autographe – all dies fließt in die Editionspraxis ein, und selbst scheinbar problemlose Klassikerausgaben werden fragwürdig oder gar dubios.

As part of their ongoing reissue of the Crosby, Stills & Nash catalog, Rhino put out Demos, a collection of early home recordings of staples from the CSN catalog, demos recorded both alone and together between the years of 1968 and 1971. Unlike some similar collections, not much here is especially revelatory; apart from "Love the One You're With," here almost droning at the beginning, there are no great differences in lyrics or approach, with such solo recordings as "Almost Cut My Hair" pointing clearly to their latter full-blown incarnations.
