"Born in Oslo on 23rd August, Rypdal was already a star at home in his teens with pop-rock group The Vanguards. This was followed by the timely and inevitable passage through psychedelia with quartet The Dream, releasing their only album, Get Dreamy, in 1967. In 1968, still only 21 years old, Rypdal released Bleak House, the first, quite extraordinary album under his own name, fully showing what direction he was moving into. Min Bul, his trio with Bjornar Andresen and Espen Rud, followed with their only album two years later. Rypdal and fellow Norwegians Jan Garbarek, Arild Andersen and Jon Christensen were quickly picked up by Manfred Eicher, starting his ECM label.

Jerry Madrawski is a very popular figure in the accordion community. He has recorded numerous albums (above all featuring the music of Polish composers); since 1980, he has been involved in educational activities. After many years of a virtuosic career, his artistic activity took a significant turn toward composing. This release is a documentary by Jerzy Madrawski. The title ‘Interference’ can be understood as overlapping of many stylistic features, as a result of which a new, comprehensive and harmonious effect arises. Madrawski’s work is impossible to label with a specific style.

Perhaps the most characteristic feature of the 20th-century musical landscape is the stylistic pluralism, visible not only across numerous schools and movements, but also in the language of individual artists who, unrestricted by the prevailing composition rules, would reach for various means of musical expression. The most crucial issues addressed by post-Romantic composers included the sound colour, important both for pre-war impressionists and representatives of sonorism.

The Legacy of R & B SlowJamz: "The slow jams are the songs that cross the time and those that mark the most people's minds," singer Brian McKnight once said. Following the glorious traces of their Soul elders (Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass, The Isley Brothers, Luther Vandross here with the excellent "Take You Out".), The Rn'B applied itself as a model pupil to reproduce the successful recipe delivering sweet melodies sung by ever more languorous voices.

Slide guitar blues is produced when a player uses some kind of tubular finger covering (usually made of metal or glass, like a bottleneck) to depress the strings of a guitar over the frets so that the strings are stretched and bent, producing a wavering tone. Traditionally slide guitar blues was played on resonator guitars, but a variety of acoustic and electric guitars have also been used. Blues slide guitar originated in the Mississippi Delta region where it was popularized by a number of blues players, including Robert Johnson. Electric slide guitar blues developed along with other electric blues styles with the migration of African-Americans north to Chicago in the 1940s.
