This Rhino U.K. 2012 box set rounds up the prime of Booker T. & the MG's, the five albums they released between 1962 and 1968: Green Onions, Soul Dressing, And Now!, Hip Hug-Her, and Doin' Our Thing. Often, Booker T. & the MG's are seen as nothing more than a singles act but these records illustrate just how deeply their gifts ran, as they are all deeply funky, gritty, soulful records that are easy to enjoy. And when they're collected in this convenient little box, they're even easier – and cheaper – to appreciate.

Recorded in Munich, Germany, in 1965, the three tracks that make up The Trance come from the same session that produced the invigorating Booker Ervin/Dexter Gordon tenor battles, Settin' the Pace. These remaining tracks feature Ervin's sole tenor on two of his compositions, the blues "Groovin at the Jamboree" and the haunting 19-minute title track, dedicated to the late bassist George Tucker. Also included is the standard "Speak Low," also clocking in at 19 minutes. Admittedly, tracks that long can get tiresome quickly in the wrong hands. Fortunately, Ervin's inspired exploratory tenor flights are consistently stirring, punctuated with piercing blues…

Genre: Funk, Soul / Label: Stax

The classic '60s/early 70s soul instrumental sound from the classic '60s/early 70s soul instrumental band featuring Booker T Jones on the keyboards, Steve 'The Colonel' Cropper on guitar, Duck Dunn on bass and, one of the greatest of all soul drummers, Al Jackson on the skins. Cropper and Dunn went on to fame again with the Blues Brothers movie, albums and touring band of the same name. Al Jackson died far too soon. Melting Pot is a return of the 1971 set they cut for Stax and adds to the legacy of fine albums once again in catalogue.

Simon Critchley - A cosa pensiamo quando pensiamo al calcio
Italian | 2018 | 166 pages | ISBN: 8806237497 | EPUB | 5,2 MB

Perché il calcio è così amato, e in maniera così viscerale? Cosa lo rende così appassionante? Forse il fatto che dietro la superficie fatta di tifo sfrenato e affari miliardari, nasconda molto altro. Se infatti applichiamo al calcio gli strumenti della filosofia contemporanea scopriamo, per esempio, che nonostante tutto il pallone è fondamentalmente socialista. O che la partita è il vero rito catartico dei nostri tempi, più vitale e coinvolgente del teatro, che ha sostituito nella coscienza collettiva. O che Claudio Ranieri e Nietzsche hanno molte più cose in comune di quanto pensassimo. Questo pamphlet raffinato e accessibile ci accompagna passo passo in un'affascinante disamina fenomenologica dello sport più bello del mondo. E ci dimostra che il calcio non ha tanto a che fare con la vittoria e la sconfitta, quanto con il raggiungere - anche solo per un breve ma indimenticabile momento - uno stato di grazia.

Respected British drummer Simon Phillips has a resume that’s as long as your arm…assuming you have a long arm. Here on his fourth release under the Protocol title he once again is performing with Greg Howe, Ernest Tibbs and Dennis Hamm. Together they’ve created fifty-eight minutes of some of the finest instrumental Fusion music I’ve heard in a long time. Most of these tunes are longer, in the six to eight minute range allowing for a great mix of combo performance and soloing. After all, this is a genre and an album that showcases performance and instrumental virtuosity, and on Protocol 4 we get plenty of both.

Venezuelan-born pianist Edward Simon marshals the combined forces of his Afinidad quartet (featuring alto saxophonist David Binney, bassist Scott Colley and drummer Brian Blade), the Imani Winds chamber quintet and special guests, vocalist Gretchen Parlato, guitarist Adam Rogers and two percussionists, with a superbly light touch on this album that captures the titular sorrows and triumphs with subtlety, nuance and beautiful textures.
