Borderlands Trio, the collective effort of bassist Stephan Crump, pianist Kris Davis and drummer Eric McPherson, has luck on its side. Less than a year old, its chemistry is unusually deep. And while I don’t often use the term, it’s also a band that boasts a bit of magic.

Brahms was 48 years old and at the height of his powers when he completed his Piano Concerto No. 2. The Olympian B flat Concerto is, famously, not only one of the most technically challenging of all piano concertos to play but also one of the longest and a supreme test of the soloist’s technique and stamina. Not far behind it in terms of the challenges it presents the soloist with, is the early Burleske for piano and orchestra by Richard Strauss. Dedicated to Hans von Bülow as a thank-you present, Bülow however, refused to learn it, considering it to be ‘unplayable’. This may have had something to with the fact that Bülow’s hands could barely span an octave – an insuperable obstacle in a work that demands superlative, stamina-sapping octaves - but which begs the question why the composer should write something so physically unsuitable for his mentor. This is repertoire in which Joseph Moog excels.

Seit Februar 1987 existiert das Palast Orchester mit seinem Sänger Max Raabe und lässt die Musik der 20er, 30er und 40er Jahre neu auf- und erleben. Mit seiner charmanten Art hat das Orchester die Tanzmusik eines umstrittenen Zeitalters wieder salonfähig gemacht. Die zurückhaltende Strenge und die grotesk anmutende Ernsthaftigkeit ihres Auftretens lassen der Ironie und der süffisanten Doppeldeutigkeit den angemessenen Raum. Jedoch spürt man den großen Respekt der Interpreten vor den Komponisten und Textdichtern ihres Repertoires.

On this, the second Spirit album, the group put all of the elements together that made them the legendary (and underrated) band that they were. Jazz, rock & roll, and even classical elements combined to create one of the cleanest, most tasteful syntheses of its day. The group had also improved measurably from their fine debut album, especially in the area of vocals. The album's hit single, "I Got a Line on You," boasts especially strong harmonies as well as one of the greatest rock riffs of the period. The first side of this record is a wonderful and seamless suite, and taken in its entirety, one of the greatest sides on Los Angeles rock. The CD reissue also boasts some excellent bonus tracks. "So Little to Say" is one of Jay Ferguson's finest compositions ever, and the jazz-inspired instrumentals such as "Fog" and "Space Chile" showcase pianist John Locke as one of the most inspired and lyrical players in the rock idiom to date. All in all, a classic album and a true landmark.

Spirit's 1968 debut album spent more than six months on the Billboard album charts and received heavy airplay on underground FM radio. Their music was part of the core, essence, and heartbeat of the the hippie, psychedelic, counter culture movement. The album is timeless, as fresh today as when it first appeared. The band could play more styles than almost any other group. On Spirit they unveiled a mélange of rock, jazz, blues, folk-rock, and even a bit of classical and Indian music. The music is experimental. The vocals flow as easily as the instrumentals. Spirit struck a careful balance between disciplined studio chops, jazz improvisation, and driving rock and roll. Guitar prodigy Randy California is a clear standout, but the other band members are superb as well; John Locke's shimmering keyboards, Mark Andes' subsonic wall of bass, and Ed Cassidy's precision drumming. Big credit has to go to lead singer Jay Fergusson, whose phrasing is always just right with a wonderful spontaneous feel. The Marty Paich string arrangements are sublime.

Conceived and realized in partnership with Q2 Music’s Peabody award-winning podcast Meet the Composer, Splitting Adams is Alarm Will Sound’s tribute to American composer John Adams, and in particular to his works Chamber Symphony (1992) and Son of Chamber Symphony (2007). Presented with commentary tracks from MTC’s host Nadia Sirota, Alarm Will Sound’s artistic director Alan Pierson, and the composer himself, the podcast-plus-performance conveys a rare sense of interaction for the listener; not only does the music, rendered in all its lush detail by the 17 musicians in AWS, capture and connect the long trajectory between the two works, but the commentary also shines a revealing light on the story behind the music.

Focus : plus encore qu’un classique, cet album gravé en 1961 par Stan Getz sur une partition d’Eddie Sauter fait figure de référence absolue dans l’art si délicat de marier soliste de jazz et orchestre à cordes. Depuis l’adolescence, Sylvain Rifflet caressait le rêve un peu fou de suivre l’exemple de son idole, en enregistrant lui aussi « son » Focus. Mais attention : pas question de rejouer l’original à l’identique, exercice fatalement voué à la stérilité.

Flamenco is not simply a form of music, but an experience for the mind, body, and soul. It is an ever-evolving musical and cultural tradition to be shared with others. At its core, Flamenco music is pure emotion. “Soñador (Dreamer)” is a musical snapshot of my vision of Flamenco. Each piece on this album is a musical vignette that evokes a certain person, place, experience, memory, or emotion that I have experienced. The process of putting together this album was a collaborative effort and memorable experience for me, and I hope that some of the duende, soul, we put into this album will find its way into those who listen!
