Miles once said, "All my inspiration today comes from Ahmad Jamal." These recordings are the reason why. The mid fifties was a fertile time for jazz; fresh, original ensembles were taking shape all over the country. The Modern Jazz Quartet, the Dave Brubeck Quartet, The Jazz Messengers and the Ahmad Jamal Trio immediately come to mind. Among musicians, each group had its imitators and its creative disciples who took its innovations one step further.
Talking Heads fans have been waiting a long time to have the band's eight studio albums remastered and reissued, but they may find that the long-awaited revamping of the group's catalog is somewhat problematic. Instead of being released as individual titles, all eight titles were boxed and reissued as an expensive set, Talking Heads Brick (this box retails for $149.99; individual releases are tentatively scheduled to follow, three to four months after this set's October 2005 release) – and they're not issued as CDs, they're only available as DualDiscs, a format that contains a CD on one side and a DVD on the other.
Theese 3 LPs - recorded over three nights in February 1970 - contain Fleetwood Mac's legendary Boston tea party recordings. This is a sensational document of Fleetwood Mac at the absolute peak of their powers… This may also be the often released "Boston Tea Party" tapes from February 1970. These songs have shown up on multiple comps over the years. The Snapper 3 disc set from a few years back is the best so far. Great new mixes–nice mastering and a wonderful performance. Peter Green left the band a couple of months later but during these shows, he was still really putting a lot into it.
Now many of the world’s most serious and significant pianists (Schnabel, Serkin, Brendel, Goode, etc.) have devoted a great deal of thoughtful study to the Beethoven sonatas; in general, performance of this music represents a level of erudition and deep contemplation probably unequaled by the works of any other mainstream composer. Serious pianists study every aspect of these works in minute detail; virtually everything is taken into account except those instruments which inspired Beethoven, and which he had in mind when he composed.
