In January 2017, Donald Trump signed an executive order stopping entry to the United States from seven predominantly Muslim countries and dramatically cutting the number of refugees allowed to resettle in the United States each year. The American people spoke up, with protests, marches, donations, and lawsuits that quickly overturned the order. But the refugee caps remained.

During the mid-'50s, Sarah Vaughan spent most of her time recording songbook standards backed by a large orchestra in florid arrangements, with only the occasional breath of fresh air like her masterpiece, 1954's Sarah Vaughan with Clifford Brown. Four years after that milestone, another landed with the live album At Mister Kelly's. Recorded quite early in the days of the live LP, the album captured Vaughan at her best and most relaxed, stretching out on a set of late-night torch songs and ballads.

Reissue with latest 2014 DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. One of the key turning points of Louis Armstrong's career occurred at the Town Hall concert fully documented on this two-CD set, a reissue of the earlier two-LP release. Armstrong, who had been leading a big band for 18 years, was showcased with some musical friends who were all very complementary players (including trombonist Jack Teagarden, clarinetist Peanuts Hucko and cornetist Bobby Hackett), and the results were so exciting that Armstrong soon broke up his orchestra to form a similar all-star sextet.

Power Metal | Country: Sweden | Label: Avalon-Marquee - MICP-11337

2017 release. It's been an impressive journey for Bloodbound: The Swedish power metal commando has become more and more popular in recent years. All this falls back on talent and hard work: Since 2005 Bloodbound has not only released six studio albums and a Live DVD/CD, they have also toured with giants such as Sabaton, HammerFall and U.D.O. - in the process winning over a very devoted and loyal fanbase of metalheads. War Of Dragons is basically a continuation of the successful Stormborn (2014), but offering more fast-paced tracks, without lacking the anthemic feel the band is known for. Bloodbound are masters in combining melody with power and War Of Dragons perfectly displays the evolution that the band has gone through since their debut Nosferatu was let loose.
