The songs of late Renaissance and early Baroque England have been sliced and diced in various ways in concert and recorded programming, but the configuration here seems to be unique. The tenor Nicholas Phan, from Ann Arbor, Michigan, devised the program himself: pointing out "how little human experience has changed over the centuries" and that Dowland's melancholia had much in common with the Romantics' veneration of the lovesick solitary hero (both debatable ideas, but both stimulating), he assembles what he calls a pastiche song cycle from compositions by Purcell, Dowland, John Blow, and other lesser-known lights.
Den ständiga resan is the fourth studio album by Swedish singer-songwriter Marie Fredriksson, released on 14 October 1992 by EMI Sweden. Two singles were released from the album: "Så länge det lyser mittemot" ("As Long As the Light Shines Through") and "Mellan sommar och höst" ("Between Summer and Autumn"). It was a commercial success upon release in her native Sweden, spending two weeks atop the Swedish Albums Chart, and was certified platinum by the Swedish Recording Industry Association for shipments in excess of 100,000 copies…
Break Loose, the first album of the band founded in 2014 Marie Mokati to last no stylistic boundaries. Time heard a gentle folk melody, then an experimental rock song and everything fearlessly about to blow up conventions and reinvent. One common thread that runs through continuously, is the honesty of the story, which tells the singer, bandleader and composer Marie Daniels from her life and from observations.
René Marie's sensational 'Sound of Red' finds the singer at the top of her game, breaking new ground with her first album of entirely self-penned originals. After landing a Best Jazz Vocal Album GRAMMY nomination with her last release, Marie shoots for the stars again with 'Sound of Red', as she writes a new chapter in jazz in her patented ultra-sexy, wise, provocative and daredevil style. Her brilliance as a writer who draws equally on jazz, folk, R&B and country proves an easy match for her brilliance as a performer.
Most people are only aware of Marie Claire as the song writer of Celine Dions `Falling Into You', (or many many other tracks for such people as KD Lang, Enrique, Robert Miles, The Corrs, Belinda Carlisle etc), or for her only hit single `Rhythm is Magic' in the mid 90's. If you love either song, then you really should listen this album. She is an incredible song writer and performer, and the album is filled with stunning vocals, on brilliant pop and beautiful ballad tracks.
