When Marcia Griffiths' Play Me Sweet and Nice arrived in 1974, "Jamaica's First Lady of Song" had just left the hitmaking duo of Bob & Marcia – best known for "Young, Gifted and Black" – but was still a year away from forming the I-Threes with Rita Marley and Judy Mowatt. Released in Jamaica on the Wildflower label, the album launched her solo career with what was considered an instant classic back home, but liberties were taken – different cover art, a rearranged track list, and a new, less risqué title, Sweet Bitter Love – when the U.K. label Trojan released their version later that same year.

This disc strikes me as an ideal introduction to the music of Turkey’s greatest composer. Ahmed Adnan Saygun’s style might be described as “Szymanowski with a primal rhythmic feel.” If you love the composer’s First Violin Concerto then you will find here a very similar exoticism, nocturnal atmosphere, and love of voluptuous textures. The harmonic style is intensely chromatic, but also highly melodic. Like Bartók in his last period, Saygun’s handling of tonality mellowed toward the end of his life, which makes the Cello Concerto more consonant than the Viola Concerto, but both works are absolutely gorgeous and masterpieces of their kind. It’s positively criminal that no one plays these pieces regularly in concert. The performances here are excellent. Tim Hugh is a well-known cellist, and he pours on the tone with all of the rhapsodic abandon that Saygun requires. Mirjam Tschopp also is a superb violist, with a big, beefy tone that never gets swamped by the intricate orchestration. It’s also very rewarding to hear a Turkish orchestra in this music–and to find that it plays beautifully under Howard Griffiths.

Philip Jones Griffiths first visited Vietnam in 1966. It was an experience that would profoundly shape his career. Griffiths captured incredible images of the victims of war from innocent civilians to young soldiers caught up in the conflict. His 1971 photo journal, VIETNAM INC. transformed forever our understanding of this terrible conflict. Featuring interviews with some of those closest to him; family and friends and colleagues including John Pilger, Don McCullin and Professor Noam Chomsky, this beautifully shot documentary gives fascinating insight into the life and legacy of a man who was a true humanitarian and whose pictures are classics of photojournalism, as powerful today as the day they were taken.

God Save the King is actually a split release and/or a Robert Fripp compilation, depending on how you look at it. In 1980, Robert Fripp released something of a split disc himself, called God Save the Queen/Under Heavy Manners, consisting of a side of Frippertronics and a side of Discotronics, the latter being Frippertronics with a "dance-oriented" (according to Fripp) rhythm section. Also in 1980, Fripp formed a new group, borrowing the name from his early-'60s band, the League of Gentlemen.

Robert Schroeder is a talented and inspired german electronic composer whose career has strong connections with analogue synth sequences and spacey, spherical soundscapes produced by Klaus Schulze during the second half of the seventies. If we compared it with the best essays from K.Schulze's classic period, Harmonic Ascendant figures as a major work, pushing the cosmic synthesizer trippiness to an other level of experimentation and emotion. Harmonic Ascendant is not as majestic and as visceral than early TD and Schulze but clearly better than anything produced by these two masters after the 70's.

Pedal-steel virtuoso Robert Randolph returns with his new album, Got Soul. The album reaffirms that Randolph and his Family Band have truly evolved into one of the most exciting and innovative outfits in contemporary music. Got Soul takes stock of Randolph's past as a church musician as it pushes the band forward into new places. There is no shortage of originality on the album with songs that run the gamut from gospel numbers to deep, funky grooves to incendiary rock-and-soul jams.

Although highly productive and respected in his lifetime as a composer of Lieder, Robert Franz (1815–92) has since become a peripheral figure in music history. One reason may be that he avoids dramatic contrasts and instead aims at an emotional ambiguity: ‘My representation of joy is always tinged with melancholy, whilst that of suffering is always accompanied by an exquisite sensation of losing oneself’, he once wrote to Liszt. As a consequence his music appeals to those who are able ‘to admire the nuances of a charcoal drawing without longing for the colours of a painting’, to quote from Georges Starobinski’s liner notes to this recording. As they began to explore the songs of Franz, Starobinski and the baritone Christian Immler were moved by their findings to devise a programme which includes 23 of the composer’s often quite brief songs. Using the poet Heinrich Heine as their guiding star, they present these – all Heine settings but from different opus groups – in the form of two ‘imagined’ song cycles.

Le 5 mai 2001, à l'Assemblée nationale, Jean-Pierre Chevènement interpellait vigoureusement les députés lors du débat sur le projet de loi relatif à la Corse. En désaccord avec le gouvernement Jospin sur l'évolution des tractations, il avait démissionné en septembre 2000. L'ouvrage reproduit son discours, remarquable morceau de bravoure politique qui détone dans le consensuel climat de renoncement actuel selon lui, les accords de Matignon constituent un bricolage institutionnel qui non seulement entraînera la République " dans un engrenage mortel ", destiné à " satisfaire les exigences indépendantistes ", mais aussi livrera la Corse à des intérêts peu transparents. …
