The Avant Garde was a coffeehouse in Milwaukee, Wisconsin that played host to a variety of rock, blues, and folk performers in the '60s, and Windy City guitar wizard Magic Sam (aka Sam Maghett) rolled in to play a few sets in June 1968. A local kid with an interest in recording named Jim Charne showed up with a reel-to-reel machine and a couple of microphones, and he captured Magic Sam's show on tape; 45 years later, those tapes have finally been made public on the album Live at the Avant Garde, and given the relatively small amount of material that's surfaced on the late blues legend (who succumbed to a heart attack when he was just 32), this set is a very welcome find. Live at the Avant Garde has a decidedly different feel than Magic Sam Live, which preserved radio broadcasts from 1963 and 1964 and a 1969 appearance at the Ann Arbor Blues Festival; while those recordings blazed with intensity, this captures Magic Sam and his band in more laid-back form, playing a small, booze-free venue rather than a rowdy bar or a festival audience in the thousands.

Thirty years ago, Graziano Uliani, emiliano crazy in the soul of soul of the South of the United States and Otis Redding (he had just attended the celebrations of the twenty years of his death in Macon, Georgia) had a dream: to transmutate his Porretta Spas, tiny spa on the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine, in a small local Memphis. Since then, on the stage of the festival he devised and launched in 1987, soul giants climb and worship names loved by fans, and this double CD by 103 Music Editions and Discography and Warner is like an exciting flashback over history Of an event that has just earned international fame and recognition, ending up to become a bastion of a historical genre that at home could be completely forgotten: in the two live recordings of the main protagonists of the recent editions of the show that someone has Defined as 'The Italian Woodstock Of Black American Music'.

Released for the first time on this 1999 Challenge CD, this live set features the unusual duo of guitarist Jim Hall and valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, two-thirds of the 1957 Jimmy Giuffre Three. Although there are occasions when one of the musicians accompanies the other one, much of the time Hall and Brookmeyer function as equals, improvising together on a set of standards plus an ad-lib blues called "Sweet Basil." Their ability to improvise while thinking of the whole picture and their knack for spontaneously harmonizing really come in handy during this intriguing and frequently exciting outing. Among the selections reborn in the playing of Hall and Brookmeyer are John Lewis' "Skating in Central Park," "Body and Soul," "Darn That Dream," and "St. Thomas." A successful effort that should not have taken 20 years to release.

The Cincinnati May Festival Chorus has an impressive heritage as the artistic heart of the Cincinnati May Festival, the oldest continuous choral festival in the Western Hemisphere. Their Christmas album is a beautiful mix of traditional carols and lesser-known gems, including Franz Biebl’s sumptuous “Ave Maria,” the thrilling, restless “Carol of the Bells,” and Morten Lauridsen’s reflective, ravishing “O Magnum Mysterium.” A real highlight is Britten’s “A Hymn to the Virgin” there are over 140 singers in this choir, yet they achieve genuine intimacy and a remarkable breadth of dynamics.

Mais comment a-t-on transmis le souvenir de Jésus ? Qui étaient les premiers témoins oculaires ? Quelles chaînes de transmission ont permis aux rédacteurs des évangiles d'écrire leurs textes, près d'un siècle après la mort de Jésus ? Le travail de B. Ehrman met l'accent sur la critique textuelle du Nouveau Testament, le Jésus historique et l'évolution du christianisme primitif. …
