For 12 years, Katrina held all the "most horrible, most expensive" titles for US hurricanes. When the monster storm slammed into Mississippi's Gulf Coast in 2005, public health physician Dr. Robert Travnicek firmly faced the disaster. In Katrina, Mississippi: Voices from Ground Zero, Dr. Travnicek and other first responders reveal what really happened during Katrina: what they did to get ready, how they managed from inside the emergency operations centers in Hancock and Harrison Counties, and the catastrophic destruction they dealt with for several years to come.

In this lively, freewheeling road movie, Ben Mendelsohn plays Gerry, a talented but down-on-his-luck gambler whose fortunes begin to change when he meets Curtis (Ryan Reynolds), a younger, highly charismatic poker player. The two strike up an immediate friendship and Gerry quickly persuades his new friend to accompany him on a road trip to a legendary high stakes poker game in New Orleans. As they make their way down the Mississippi River, Gerry and Curtis manage to find themselves in just about every bar, racetrack, casino, and pool hall along the way, experiencing both incredible highs and dispiriting lows, but ultimately forging a deep and genuine bond that will stay with them long after their adventure is over.

Joey Gilmore's first release in ten years following his victory as the winner of the International Blues Challenge. A recording career that spans over 35 years from his first single in released in 1969. This release is a Soulful, inspired session of modern electric Blues with Soul. Opening with "Ghosts Of Mississippi", a brilliant piece written by Graham Wood Drout, with Gilmore and band hitting thick and muscular ala Albert King's "Born Under A Born Sign". Gilmore's pinched, slightly raspy voice and tart guitar licks get All Star support from Drout on bass, Cam Robb's skins and icy keyboards courtesy of Bob Abernathy on this cut. Other songs on the disk incorporate the songwriting duo of Gilmore and George Caldwell, his touring bass player backed by Darrell Raines on guitar and Lionel Harrison on Drums. The compositions include four Soul Blues pounders plus the moody, provocative "Things Have Not Changed", chronicling 48 years of racially-motivated crimes beginning with the lynching of Emmet Till up through the Rodney King episode. What makes "Ghosts" special beyond superb playing and strong songs is Jim Nestor's warm, organic production wraping the CD's theme, chronicling the transition of the Blues into the next millinum from the opening note throughout the disk.

Contemporary American music for wind band is among the most varied, colorful and brilliant to be heard anywhere, not least when performed by one of the genres leading young ensembles. Pulitzer Prize winner Joseph Schwantner is represented by his evocative concerto Luminosity. David Maslanka has helped to reshape the wind band sound and Hosannas, some of which are based on chorale melodies, are full of moments of self-reflection. These qualities of quiet and timelessness are shared by the first movement of Steven Bryants Alchemy in Silent Spaces.
