Flipside is a Danish/Swedish duo who play ultrachilled cinematic music. Their unique blend of Scandinavian melancholy and baleric chillout makes them sound like nothing else - the sound is pure deluxe - heavenly, smooth and thrillingly crisp. With their trademark sound of acoustic guitars, trumpet, cello and wordless vocals combined with electronic beats, sounds and smooth vibes has Flipside already established themselves in the Premier league of chill out. Since the release of their four track EP in 2002, Flipside has had tracks on compilations such as Real Ibiza, IChill, Cassagrande, Sky Lounge, Klassik Lounge, Les Ambassadeurs and the History Of Chill Out…
Zen-Men started to transduce their thoughts using musical waves in the year 1995. Two years later, 1997 the first album "Men from Mars" was released. Several tracks were licensed to various compilations worldwide including Buddha Bar, Café abstrait, SpaceNight, Klassik Lounge and others. Their music is often described as "special" or "unique". Well it is the essence of years of research and studies in e.g. BioFeedback, BioPhotonics, Buddhism, Cymatics, Harmonik(Hans Kayser), Hawking, Hinduism, Kepler, Leonardo da Vinci, LIFE, Metaphysics, Numerology, Plato, Psychology, Overtones, Zwen… The musical background is based on many years in different music-schools, classical piano, e-bass, trumpet and an exam in Sax, living years in various bands, big bands and jazz combos…
As well as Sir Charles's first recording of Janácek's Sinfonietta, this 5-CD set also showcases him performing the music of other composers whose music he was particularly famed for the world over.
Constance Demby is one of the few representatives of the New Age movement (in both her music and her personal philosophies) who consistently creates artistic, highly expressive compositions. Demby was trained in classical music as a child, and her artistic spirit led her to also master several other art forms; at the University of Michigan, she studied painting, sculpture, and music. It was her work as a sculptor that led her to new dimensions of sound. As she was torching a sheet of metal, it roared thunderously, and thus was born the Sonic Steel Instruments: the Whale Sail, and the Space Bass, enormous bowed instruments with deep archetypal resonances.
Rafael Kubelik was one of our foremost interpreters of Dvorak and other great Czech composers such as Smetana and Janacek. His critically acclaimed 1960's Dvorak symphony Deutsche Grammophon cycle was reissued several years ago as a budget-priced collection.
Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and 24 bit remastering. Featuring the work of obscure composer/pianist Todd Cochrane, vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson's 1971 album Head On is a highly cerebral and atmospheric affair that is somewhat different than his other equally experimental '70s work. Although the album does feature more of the avant-garde jazz that Hutcherson was exploring during this period, Cochrane's material is heavily influenced by contemporary classical music, and accordingly Head On is more of an exercise in reflective, layered jazz than rambunctious freebop – though it does offer some of that, too.
Reissue. Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (fully compatible with standard CD player) and the latest remastering (24bit 192kHz). Bobby Hutcherson's second quartet session, Oblique, shares both pianist Herbie Hancock and drummer Joe Chambers with his first, Happenings (bassist Albert Stinson is a newcomer). However, the approach is somewhat different this time around. For starters, there's less emphasis on Hutcherson originals; he contributes only three of the six pieces, with one from Hancock and two from the typically free-thinking Chambers. And compared to the relatively simple compositions and reflective soloing on Happenings, Oblique is often more complex in its post-bop style and more emotionally direct (despite what the title may suggest).
