Blasting out of stereo speakers in the summer of 1969, Brave New World was more fully realized, and rocked harder, than the Steve Miller Band's first two albums. From the opening storm of the uplifting title track to the final scorcher, "My Dark Hour," featuring Paul McCartney (credited as "Paul Ramon"), this recording was the strongest project before Miller's Fly Like an Eagle days.

This new compilation brings us the best of Hopkins' 1946-1948 recordings for the Los Angeles based Aladdin Record label. Remarkable solitary blues recorded in the fully-formed individual style on which he would build a life-long career. Hopkins scored national hits with "Shotgun Blues" and "Short Haired woman", essential, evocative Texas blues, rooted in a tradition going back to Blind Lemon Jefferson.

Chopin's two piano concertos have long been admired more as pianistic vehicles than as integrated works for piano and orchestra. But in his revelatory new recording, Krystian Zimerman suggests otherwise: The opening orchestral tuttis have so much more light, shade, orchestral color, and detail, you wonder if they've been rewritten. Every gesture, every instrumental solo is so specifically characterized that by the time the piano makes a dramatic entrance, the pieces have become operas without words.

L'undicenne Gilly è ben nota agli assistenti sociali e, al causa del suo carattere del tutto ingestibile e della sua mai abbandonata speranza di ritrovare la madre naturale Courtney, ha cambiato diverse volte famiglie affidatarie. Mandata a vivere con i Trotters, una famiglia ancora più strana di quanto leistessa non sia, Gilly non ha alcuna intenzione di rimanere nella loro casa ma l'allegra e affettuosa Maime Trotter non si arrende di fronte alle sue resistenze e cerca di conquistarla. Il piano di fuga che Gilly elabora però non va a buon fine e lentamente la bambina comincia a guardare la nuova famiglia con occhi diversi.

The work in this collection is a result of an occasional collaboration between myself, Leo Abrahams and Jon Hopkins. The two of them are gifted young player/composers whose work, like mine, is intimately connected to the possibilities and freedoms of electronic music. Over the last few years we've worked together several times, enjoying exploring the huge new sonic territories now available to musicians. Mostly the pieces on this album resulted not from 'composition' in the classical sense, but from improvisation. The improvisations are not attempts to end up with a song, but rather with a landscape, a feeling of a place and perhaps the suggestion of an event. In a sense they deliberately lack 'personality': there is no singer, no narrator, no guide as to what you ought to be feeling. If these pieces had been used in films, the film would complete the picture. As they stand, they are the mirror-image of silent movies - sound-only movies. –Brian Eno

Contact Note is the second album from electronic composer, producer, remixer Jon Hopkins. An album that slowly evolves into a deep compelling musical experience with Hopkins calling on his skills as a classically trained musician to give his most abstract work delicate impressionist touches. Piano contrasts with deep driving basslines, drifting atmospheres and intense rhythms: a glorious sonic adventure.

Jon Hopkins has hovered around the edges of dance and indie rock for several years, playing with Brian Eno, Coldplay, and King Creosote - and even seeming to take a backseat on his own records. But Immunity, the producer's breakthrough fourth album, bounds and writhes with its own life force.

Mainstream-swing-to-bop's the thing on the two 1960 Swingville gems paired here, both of which feature one of the foremost Basieites on tenor saxophone, George "Buddy" Tate. Tate (1913-2001), whose big-toned blues mastery is his longtime calling card, is an integral part of a lively quintet date led by Claude Hopkins (1903-1984), the first of three fine albums the pianist-composer-bandleader would pilot for Swingville.

Requiem for a dreamstate. It's possibly somewhere between heaven, hell and high water, down the Thames Delta towards Eden. It may involve techno and a distorted state or simply mates sat listening to music together, drifting on the open sea of their minds. This is Jon Hopkins world, not so much joining the dots as colouring the whole damn picture in.
