Hugh Coltman – Shadows: Songs of Nat King Cole (2015)
FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/44.1kHz | Time – 47:00 minutes | 505 MB | Genre: Jazz
Studio Masters, Official Digital Download – Source: Q0buz | @ Okeh Records / Sony Music Entertainment
Recorded: November 2014 at MidiLive Studios, Villetaneuse France

„Shadows – Songs of Nat King Cole“, has been an idea brewing in Hugh’s mind for a few years. Cole was one of the Jazz artists that Hugh’s mother often played in the family home and his music became part of the soundtrack of Hugh’s formative years before his mother’s untimely death when he was 7 years old. After having released and toured two self penned albums distinctly pop on Universal records, Hugh was invited to tour and record with French/Italian Jazz pianist and producer Eric Legnini. This experience of a working Jazz musician gave him the confidence to finally approach Nat King Cole’s repertoire.

The idea behind the album was born of Hugh’s intention to shed light upon the darker part of Nat King Cole’s life. That of a black musician, active at a time when segregation was rife and most black artists entered music venues by the service entrance. Indeed Cole himself narrowly escaped a kidnapping in 1956 in Alabama and even though successful, he was clearly not welcome in Beverly Hills where he received threats from the Klu Klux Klan soon after the family’s arrival. Cole stated: ‘I can’t understand it … I have not taken part in any protests. Nor have I joined an organisation fighting segregation. Why should they attack me ?”. Hugh’s idea was to reveal these “Shadows”, rarely if ever evident in the choice of material or production of Cole’s work. The choice of songs, production and Hugh’s vocal performances on Shadows, often rooted in his passion for the Blues, give an undertone of tension, even unease.

Notwithstanding Hugh’s original idea, when he came to record the closing title for the album, Morning Star, an ode to a mother’s love, it became clear to him that this project was in fact, much closer to home. Shadows… is Hugh paying homage to his mother, through the work of Nat King Cole.

Following the critical acclaim of their debut album ‘Music of the Realm’, The Queen’s Six return to Resonus with a programme of secular madrigals from the same six English Renaissance composers all associated with the royal court of Queen Elizabeth I, from whom the group take their name.
Entitled ‘Her Heavenly Harmony: Profane Music from the Royal Court’, The Queen’s Six present a recital of well- and lesser-known works by Morley, Weelkes, Tomkins, Byrd, Tallis and Gibbons, with various themes of ‘Royalty’, ‘Planets’, ‘Ballets’, ‘Birds and Flowers’, ‘Dedications’ and ‘Love and Death’.

‘This is The Queen’s Six’s ‘difficult second album’ – their debut album (“Music of the Realm” RES10146) establishing them as the new boys on the block – and they have passed the test with flying colours.’ –Early Music Review

‘This is the second album from this choir devoted to music by familiar names of the Tudor and Jacobean royal courts. Morley, Tomkins, Tallis, Byrd, Gibbons & Weelkes are all represented by secular songs of love, death and other themes. A lovely collection.’ –Lark Reviews

Jack Holcomb – Led by the Masters’s Great Hand (1965/2015)
FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/96 kHz | Time – 00:33:04 minutes | 692 MB | Genre: Gospel, Christian, Soul
Official Digital Download – Source: Qobuz | Front cover | Label: RCA Records

The man once called “Americas favorite gospel song stylist”, Rev. Harold Jackson “Jack” Holcomb, has been gone for over 40 years, but his albums are as popular today as they were in his fifteen-year recording career. Here in this space I will share what I have learned about Jack Holcomb, information that has not been easy to find because Jack has been gone since July 1968, long before there was a World Wide Web. Many people have joined with me and helped to build up this web site, and I hope you will, too. We want this to be a resource for people who are interested in knowing more about a fellow Christian who loved his Lord and raised his voice in songs of praise his whole life long.

Harold “Jack” Holcomb, a minister and gospel recording artist was born and raised in Waco,Texas. He hosted a radio program in California and was evangelist Jack Shuller’s song leader. He returned to Waco and recorded many gospel music albums and traveled around the country preaching and singing at groups and churches. In 1963 he was named “Mr. Gospel Music” by RCA Records. Jack did not have an easy life, coming from a poor family. He lost his first wife just a few years into their marriage. He remarried, but in 1953 his first child Jo Ellen died in a tragic accident; before she could be buried a tornado struck and destroyed the funeral home and most of downtown Waco. He found his daughter’s body and she was buried in Waco Memorial Park. Jack suffered heart attacks throughout the 1960s. In the summer of 1968, when Jack was only 47 years old, he was to meet with executives in Dallas to plan his next record, but died of heart failure in his hotel. Jack was buried in Waco memorial park next to his beloved daughter.

專輯名稱:梁祝.黃河The Butterfly Lovers & The Yellow River
專輯主唱:西崎崇子/殷承宗
音樂風格:民樂
國家地區:德國
出品時間:2003年

內容簡介:

又一個稱得上經典的《黃河·梁祝》   這一版本中黃河由我國著名鋼琴演奏家殷承宗演繹,梁祝則由日本小提琴家西崎崇子執弓。在網上看到很多人對這個鬼子版梁祝頗有微詞。但平心而論,西崎崇子對作品的诠釋還是很精彩的,只是西崎崇子弓下的英台比起我們“嫡系”大師的來(余麗拿、盛中國、呂思清等等)多了幾分女孩子氣,陰柔有余,貞烈不足,但不論怎樣,這確實算得上是經典的梁祝版本之一。   比起西崎崇子的小提琴,感覺捷克電台交響樂團的伴奏實在是有些不敢恭維,總是有些溫溫吞吞、匆匆忙忙,尤其是開頭結尾的兩段長笛華彩,根本沒有勾畫出作品應有的意境,聽起來很不舒服。   另外還值得一提的是,西崎崇子弓下的那把琴也是經典之一,這把奧地利小提琴大師弗裏茨·克萊斯勒(Fritz Kreisler)曾經用過的名琴,是由傳奇制琴家族瓜奈裏家族中的Guarneri del Gesu于1732年制做的,呵呵,這大概是迄今爲止錄制過梁祝的最名貴的一把提琴了,呵呵。   最後還得說說殷承宗的黃河,簡單點吧,比起石叔誠來,這才是大氣磅礴的黃河。   NAXOS旗下的“馬可波羅(MARCO POLO)”品牌多年來致力于推廣中國本土的優秀音樂作品,這張《梁祝· 黃河》則是他們的代表作,荟萃了中國當代最優秀的兩部原創協奏曲——小提琴協奏曲《梁山伯與祝英台》以及鋼琴協奏曲《黃河》,擔任獨奏的西崎崇子和殷承宗也非常具有實力,所以這張唱片在國內非常暢銷。其中西崎崇子與甄健豪指揮的捷克斯洛伐克廣播交響樂團合作演出的《梁祝》是非常優秀的演繹。雖然國內許多聽衆因爲西崎崇子的日本人身份,對她的演繹不屑一顧,但她弓下的“祝英台”與俞麗拿的風格相比還是有很大特色的。西崎崇子突出東方女性特有的溫柔、矜持,含情脈脈,也流露出對腐朽封建禮教的無奈與無助,聽後讓人感到幾許悲涼!

Tracklist:

01. 小提琴協奏曲《梁山伯與祝英臺》The Butterfly Lovers’ Violin Concerto [0:25:45.25]

鋼琴協奏曲《黃河》The Yellow River Piano Concerto

Jack DeJohnette, Ravi Coltrane, Matthew Garrison – In Movement (2016)
FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | Time – 54:25 minutes | 1,03 GB | Genre: Jazz
Studio Master, Official Digital Download – Source: Qobuz | Artwork: Digital booklet | Label: ECM

On In Movement, veteran drummer Jack DeJohnette’s introduces his adventurous, multigenerational new trio. Fifty years ago, as a guest with John Coltrane’s group, DeJohnette played with the fathers of his current trio members, saxophonist Ravi Coltrane and bassist Matthew Garrison, son of Jimmy Garrison. In a programme full of references to jazz history, the forward movement of this ensemble is nonetheless unmistakeable.

Over the past few years, Jack DeJohnette has had his storied jazz career – now over six decades – revisited in several ways. In 2013, he led a “dream band” at the Chicago Jazz Festival that included Roscoe Mitchell, Henry Threadgill, Muhal Richard Abrams, and Larry Guy, all of whom he’d played with in the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians during the early ’60s. That performance was released in 2015 by ECM as Made in Chicago. Earlier this year, Resonance Records issued Some Other Time: The Lost Session from the Black Forest, which featured DeJohnette in Bill Evans’ trio with Eddie Gomez in 1968.

In Movement finds the bandleader in a new trio with saxophonist Ravi Coltrane and bassist/electronicist Matthew Garrison. As a young drummer he had the opportunity to sit in with both their fathers, John Coltrane and Jimmy Garrison. This debut also looks at history, but through the gaze of the present. The set begins with Coltrane, Sr.’s classic Civil Rights-era composition, “Alabama.” While it is instantly recognizable, the trio find their own form of liberty within it via Garrison’s electric bass harmonics and economic use of electronics. Coltrane’s tenor states the melodic frame solemnly while DeJohnette dances around the pair with quick accents and feints, juxtaposing circular rhythm and improvisation. Also present is Miles Davis’ modal classic “Blue in Green.” This drummerless reading with DeJohnette at the piano is more abstract. Ravi’s soprano is beautifully lyrical inside the modes, while Garrison adorns both players in sparse layers of honeyed echo. The inclusion of Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Serpentine” is not as out of place as it initially seems: DeJohnette played with the group’s founder Maurice White in Chicago. The slow, unwinding funk is a showcase for Coltrane’s phrasing and Garrison’s groove-laden bass playing as the drummer adds tough, slippery breaks. This group showcases its collective prowess in the long title track. Commencing with an urgent single-chord piano and synth pulse, tapping cymbals, and syncopated hi-hat, Garrison employs a low-end chordal bass toward Coltrane’s long, labyrinthine soprano melody. The tune unfurls, building to a stunning crescendo at the conclusion. “Two Jimmys” (for Hendrix and Garrison) offers a Middle Eastern modal center via synth and a treated bassline. Coltrane’s tenor moves from the inside to out while DeJohnette’s drums deliver a martial cadence that eventually splits the jam wide open. “Rashied” (in tribute to Coltrane, Sr.’s great last drummer Rashied Ali) is a wailing improv duet between DeJohnette and Ravi, exploring their own version of “interstellar space.” DeJohnette contributes “Lydia” (an homage to his wife) as a post-bop ballad with gorgeous bassline lyricism from Garrison, and the lovely piano trio closer “Soulful Ballad.” Historical (re)examinations aside, In Movement is a compelling first statement from a band who, despite generational differences, is connected through deep listening and harmonic intelligence. This group’s future is rife with possibility.

01 – Alabama
02 – In Movement
03 – Two Jimmys

Max Bruch – Violin Concerto No 1 & other works – Jack Liebeck, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Martyn Brabbins (2016)
FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | Time – 01:12:11 minutes | 1,28 GB | Genre: Classical
Studio Master, Official Digital Download – Source: hyperion-records | Digital Booklet | © Hyperion Records
Recorded: September 2014 at the City Halls, Candleriggs, Glasgow, Scotland

Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No 1 is the daddy—the most popular ever written. Much recorded, Jack Liebeck turns in a dazzling performance of youthful vigour, prefacing the Concerto with the gorgeous Serenade and a Romance.

One couldn’t help wondering, when Jack Liebeck launched his exploration of Bruch’s violin works last year, why he began with the Third Concerto. It was an uphill struggle, with Liebeck attempting to convince us that this is more interesting music than it is. Still, it was a worthy project, for completeness’s sake, showcasing an approach as fresh as we have come to expect from this violinist.

It’s an approach that pays dividends in this latest recording, which unites Liebeck with Bruch’s evergreen Concerto No 1. No sign here of nanny-goat vibrato or the banana-skin slides that mar Daniel Hope’s otherwise well-judged recording. No, what Liebeck seems to be saying is that Bruch needs no additional sweeteners. His playing is unpretentious and strikingly introspective, resulting in an Adagio of quiet dignity. And even if the first movement doesn’t quite match the grandeur of Julia Fischer’s or the sweaty passion of Vadim Gluzman’s, it stands out for its poise and clarity.

The rest of the programme profiles lesser-known fodder. Lesser known for good reason, because neither the Romance in A minor nor the four-movement Serenade in A minor can compete with the First Concerto for nuance and emotional depth, let alone memorable tunes. Nonetheless, they draw urgent, vibrant playing from Liebeck, who embraces every opportunity for contrast. And it says much for the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and conductor Martyn Brabbins that they sound, throughout, as though genuinely enamoured of this music. –Hannah Nepil, Gramophone

Max Bruch (1838-1920)

Ike & Tina Turner – Workin’ Together (1971/2016)
FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/192 kHz | Time – 34:13 minutes | 1,24 GB | Genre: R&B
Studio Master, Official Digital Download – Source: Qobuz | Front Cover | © Universal Music GmbH

The most successful album ever released by Ike & Tina Turner, 1971’s Workin’ Together blends Ike Turner originals with covers of popular songs from the Beatles and of course the couple’s signature tune and Grammy winner, Proud Mary by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Workin’ Together remains Ike and Tina’s highest-charting album, peaking at number 25 in the US, while Proud Mary sold over a million copies, reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2003.

Released early in 1971, a few months after Come Together, their first album for Liberty Records, Workin’ Together was the first genuine hit album Ike & Tina had in years; actually, it was their biggest ever, working its way into Billboard’s Top 25 and spending 38 weeks on the charts. They never had a bigger hit (the closest was their Blue Thumb release, Outta Season, which peaked at 91), and, in many ways, they didn’t make a better album. After all, their classic ’60s sides were just that — sides of a single, not an album. Even though it doesn’t boast the sustained vision of such contemporaries as, say, Marvin Gaye and Al Green, Workin’ Together feels like a proper album, where many of the buried album tracks are as strong as the singles. Like its predecessor, it relies a bit too much on contemporary covers, which isn’t bad when it’s the perennial “Proud Mary,” since it deftly reinterprets the original, but readings of the Beatles’ “Get Back” and “Let It Be,” while not bad, are a little bit too pedestrian. Fortunately, they’re entirely listenable and they’re the only slow moments, outweighed by songs that crackle with style and passion. Nowhere is this truer than on the opening title track, a mid-tempo groover (written by Eki Renrut, Ike’s brilliant inverted alias) powered by a soulful chorus and a guitar line that plays like a mutated version of Dylan’s “I Want You” riff. Then, there’s the terrific Stax/Volt stomper “(Long As I Can) Get You When I Want You,” possibly the highlight on the record. Though they cut a couple of classics over the next few years, most notably “Nutbush City Limits,” the duo never topped this, possibly the best proper album they ever cut. –AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
