The Mancy of Sound is the follow-up release from influential alto saxophonist and composer Steve Coleman to last year’s critically acclaimed Harvesting Semblances and Affinities. That album was a statement of purpose that announced the return of Coleman to popular consciousness. The CD was named by Ben Ratliff in the New York Times as his #1 album of 2010 and was also voted among the top ten releases of 2010 in both the Jazz Times and Village Voice Critics Polls. His performance was thought by many to be the highlight among the almost forty bands that performed at the June 2010 Undead Festival in New York.
United Nations of Sound is the debut album by British alternative rock band RPA & The United Nations of Sound (pseudonym of Richard Ashcroft, arrived at his fourth solo album), released on 19 July 2010 through Parlophone. The album was released in the United States on 22 March 2011 under the name "Richard Ashcroft" through the record company Razor & Tie.
"Wired For Sound" is the latest release from Detroit Blues performer Howard Glazer, and his band the EL 34s. This new release retains the same searing electric blues style that Glazer is known for, mixing traditional Blues elements with more modern elements, including a full horn section at times. Glazer's guitar is as hot as an EL 34 vacuum tube throughout, blazing and scorching on both slow and upbeat blues. Special guests include Delta Blues legend David "Honeyboy" Edwards and famed poet/musician/activist John Sinclair. There is no doubt that with it's intense guitar, tight rhythm section, and Detroit styled power, "Wired For Sound" is sure to leave you feeling fully charged!
