Genre: Drama

Rising above the tradition of live action movies based on manga, Gassoh (Group Burial) tells the story of three samurai friends who join the ”Shogitai” (League to Demonstrate Righteousness), hoping to die honorable deaths in support of the former Tokugawa shogunate. With the feel of a real historical drama this brilliant work by filmmaker Kobayashi Tatsuo captures the essence of Japan’s turmoil during the final days of resistance to the dawning of the Meiji era. Unlike other recent manga to live-action movies, this motion picture brings the real samurai era’s demise to the silver screen with a totally believable story and realistic action. Superb beyond a doubt. Premiered at Montreal’s World Film Festival.

La 3e pomme ? Mais oui, puisqu'il y avait eu celle qui tenta Eve au Paradis, puis celle qui permit à Newton de découvrir les lois de la gravitation universelle et que, maintenant, nous avons celle d'Apple. Une pomme arc-en-ciel qui est devenue synonyme de micro-informatique et qui, déjà, fleurit de la Silicon Valley à l'Europe. Pour Jean-Louis Gassée, 41 ans, ancien directeur général d'Apple Computer France et nouveau vice-président de la firme californienne, cette histoire de pomme est d'abord une histoire d'amour …

Beth Waters - Don't Look Back (EP) (1997)
MP3 CBR 320kbps | RAR | 38 mb

Pop artist Beth Waters recorded this EP before she was in her 20's and yet made music which sounds like it was created by someone twice or three times her age. For those into the works of Carole King, Norah Jones, and Carly Simon.

As Barbra Streisand's first studio album of mainstream pop material in nine years, Higher Ground is something of an oddity. Instead of devoting herself to Broadway standards or a set of radio-oriented pop tunes, Streisand has crafted a record that she intended as a tribute to the power of music as prayer. It's an ambitious project, but for the most part it works, achieving a surprising grace. Higher Ground comprises both traditional religious songs and new material (even "Tell Him," an overblown duet with Celine Dion, vaguely touches on that theme), with grandiose arrangements by Marvin Hamlisch.

An electrifying stew of hard rock, biker rock, Southern rock, and keyboard rock (we're talking 1983 after all), Nemesis may easily be Axe's defining statement: The band wants nothing more than airwave domination and to come into your town to help you party down. Ripped opener "Heat in the Street" bears a similar title to "Rock 'N' Roll Party in the Streets," Axe's biggest-ever hit from their previous offering, Offering (the CD reissue erroneously christens the song "Heat in the Night" but all that matters is Nemesis made it to disc), yet despite the obvious leitmotif, nothing can touch this red-hot, hard luck, fugitive tale which takes every right turn while crashing and burning in a league with the immortal Motörhead; Axe is always geared for the radio, though, throwing in keys and vocoder for a walloping slab of two-ton American rock.

This is an album that should not have worked. LaVern Baker (a fine R&B singer) was joined by all-stars from mainstream jazz (including trumpeter Buck Clayton, trombonist Vic Dickenson, tenor-saxophonist Paul Quinichette and pianist Nat Pierce) for twelve songs associated with the great '20s blues singer Bessie Smith. Despite the potentially conflicting styles, this project is quite successful and often exciting. The arrangements by Phil Moore, Nat Pierce, and Ernie Wilkins do not attempt to re-create the original recordings; Baker sings in her own style (rather than trying to emulate Bessie Smith), and the hot solos work well with her vocals.

Jazz / Mainstream Jazz / Guitar

Although best-known for his work in mainstream swing settings, guitarist Howard Alden has long been interested in later periods of jazz. On this superior outing, he doubles on seven-string acoustic and electric guitars (which allow him to add basslines). Lew Tabackin is on four of the ten numbers (three on tenor, one on flute) and pianist Renee Rosnes appears on six songs (including a duet with Alden on "Warm Valley"), while bassist Michael Moore and drummer Bill Goodwin are on seven. Alden takes "My Funny Valentine" and "After All" as unaccompanied solos but it is his meetings with Tabackin, particularly on exciting versions of two complex Herbie Nichols songs ("House Party Starting" and "The Gig") that are most notable. Recommended.

Genre: Jazz, Boogie-Woogie | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Classics Records (CLASSICS 933)

The third "complete" Pete Johnson CD put out by the European Classics label features the great boogie-woogie pianist in three different settings. There are eight formerly rare piano solos from 1944 that cover a variety of moods, five selections with a hot Kansas City octet which includes trumpeter Hot Lips Page, tenorman Budd Johnson and two vocals from the young Etta Jones, and eight intriguing numbers in which Johnson is gradually joined by an additional musician on each track. "Page Mr. Trumpet" is an exciting outing for Hot Lips, and the other top players include clarinetist Albert Nicholas, trombonist J.C. Higginbotham and tenorman Ben Webster. A particularly exciting release.
