PentaTone's live recording of John Corigliano's The Ghosts of Versailles is billed as the world premiere recording, though it was preceded by the 1991 video recording of the Metropolitan Opera's production, which was conducted by James Levine and starred Teresa Stratas. Even so, this 2016 audiophile presentation of the LA Opera production, conducted by James Conlon, is a major event for opera lovers, especially since the Met's recording is difficult to find and performances of The Ghosts of Versailles are rare.

The Greasy Slicks are a grungy, psychedelia-laced blues rock three-piece made up of Jack Kendrew on guitar and vocals, drummer and singer Rian O’Grady, and Nathan Rasdall on bass. Off the back of the band’s recent debut album release and European/UK headline tours, expect to hear new material. In the age of the throwaway band, The Greasy Slicks truly bring something different to the table.

He is joined by a wide array of special guests including Andra Day, Herbie Hancock, Jason Isbell, Jeffrey Wright, Kandace Springs, Lindsey Stirling, Lisa Fischer, Madeleine Peyroux and Sean Jones. From the haunting reveries of Gershwin and Copland to the in-the-moment intensity of songs made famous by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, Lou Reed and Don Henley, New York Rhapsody rediscovers the dazzle and the soul of America’s most symbolic city.

Progressive Rock / RPI | Country: Italy | Label: AMS Records - AMS 264 CD

Nathan are one of those rare yet not unheard of Italian prog bands that were active in the late Seventies, yet never got around to releasing a proper original recording until the modern era. The group haven't actually been inactive in that time, however, as they've performed as a cover band (and still do to this day) presenting extravagant recreations of the classic works of Genesis, Pink Floyd, Yes, King Crimson and Supertramp, as well as more surprising choices such as Caravan and Hatfield and the North! So considering their devotion to the English progressive groups, it's very surprising to discover that their debut album of all-original material is sung warmly in Italian and highlighted by classical symphonic fancy in the grand proper RPI tradition!

Genre: Progressive Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Fading Records (FAD025)

La Bocca Della Verita is the next new name from the Italian progressive rock scene. The style of music which can be heard on their compositions can be labelled as retro progressive rock. In every way they look back at the beautiful musical period of progressive rock released in the seventies. All of the bands they covered at first can be heard on this almost 80 minutes long album. But also acts such as Yes and King Crimson could have been an inspiration for the musicians. The two keyboard players easily step into the footsteps of Tony Banks, Rick Wakeman and the late Keith Emerson. Also the bassist knows how to sound like the late Chris Squire. As for the lead guitarist it wasn't easy to compare him with anyone. But he comes close to Steve Hackett and Robert Fripp. Highly recommended to those who adore the progressive rock made in the seventies.

After a prolonged five year episode of life-gets-in-the-way, TCP (Temporal Chaos Project) enthusiastically comes back with their third release, Temporal Chaos, an album filled with the band’s unmistakable penchant for drama, twisted melodies, double-meaning lyrics, and the marriage of old and new. Opening with the edgy but strangely addictive Torn Apart and culminating in the epic In the Flame, could this be TCP’s best effort yet?

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s fascinating journey through Beethoven’s complete sonatas now comes to an end with this third volume. The prodigious exploration reaches its culmination in this three-disc set – sold for the price of 2 CDs as were its two predecessors – featuring the most mature and exploratory of Beethoven’s sonatas, including the heroic, two-movement ‘Appassionata’. Bavouzet’s distinguished interpretations reveal not only the technical virtuosity but also the emotional power of these contrasted works. With his characteristically fresh and energetic, yet expressive and profound approach, Bavouzet captures a Beethoven drawing the contours of romantic keyboard textures that would become the staple of the next generation. This project will also resonate on the concert platform, as a series of recitals will take it to the most significant venues around the world.

Nicola Fago (1677–1745) was one of the leading practitioners of the chamber cantata, a kind of mini-opera for voice and ensemble perfected by several generations of composers working in the aristocratic courts in Naples. The six examples by Fago recorded here – for the first time – reveal him to have been a master of the genre: they are dramatic, full of rhythmic excitement and stuffed with catchy tunes. Fago’s contemporaries called him ‘Il Tarantino’, since he was born in Taranto, in the area now known as Puglia, in the heel of Italy, and this is the first in a series of Toccata Classics recordings of Puglia composers.

Invented in Paris in 1846 by the Belgian-born Adolphe Sax, the saxophone was readily embraced by French composers who championed the new instrument through numerous ensemble and solo compositions. This tradition is celebrated in a programme, performed by the young and exciting Kenari Quartet, that explores the saxophone in all of its colours and sonorities, from Pierre Max Dubois’s light-hearted and jazz-inspired music to the lyrical and expressive world of Alfred Desenclos, and from Jean Françaix’s witty ‘bantering’ to the excitement and energy which closes Florent Schmitt’s Quatour, Op. 102.

Contemporary Jazz, Free Improvisation | Label: Leo Records - CD LR 760

This is quite extraordinary, being a collection of soundscape pieces formed around an eclectic variety of roots which includes free improvisation, conventional music and jazz. It is highly dynamic, often feverish, yet at times so understated as to be mesmerising. The disc opens with a fairly predictable piece that exploits and displays the whole of the quartet and its musical skills. Having got that out of the way, so to speak, the band segues into a different place altogether and its penchant for the avant garde comes to the fore. Structural experiments and investigations follow, and the four musicians each explores his own wide-ranging continuum of assets, both in skill and bravura. This allows them to develop their improvisation which is awe-inspiring, especially that from flute and piano.

Label: Favorite France

During its late '70s and early '80s heyday, France's disco-boogie scene tended towards the eccentric. Yet despite the camp, tongue-in-cheek feel adopted by many French bands and producers, much of the music was of an impressively high standard. That much is clear from Charles Maurice's second French Disco Boogie Sounds compilation. Packed full of slick, synthesizer-driven material and punchy, horn-heavy disco-funk thrillers (see the Teena Marie style "Movin" by Jackie Esam), it's a fine collection of Gallic dancefloor treats. You're unlikely to find a better example of jazz-funk positivity than Black Bells Group's "Talk Me Mam's", while Messan's "Keep Cool" is a lesson in thrusting, up-tempo disco sweatiness.
