The booklets contain extensive notes (Eng/Fr) with recording dates and line-ups. 31 hours of music in each box, totalling 1677 tracks Each track has been restored and mastered from original sources. The only reason I can think of for there not yet being a review of these four boxed sets, is that those who own them are just too busy having one hell of a blast listening to them. Some people moan about the 50 year copyright law for audio recordings in Europe, but without it this highly entertaining, eye-opening and educational undertaking could never have taken place. These 100 discs (spread over four boxed sets of 25 discs) tell the story of jazz from 1898 to 1959.
Bosch's With You were a Russian instrumental post-rock band, formed in Moscow in 2004. Conceived initially as a solo-project of Dima T. Pilot (1980-2009), guitarist and founder of the noise-rock band Pilots Up In Ssmoke (active from 1999 through 2006), that project soon grew into a four-piece band know for its charming and intriguing stage performances. From 2004 through 2009, Bosch's With You produced 8 albums in total including vinyl-only LP for the US-based KNVBI Records and 3”EP for Chat Blanc Records from Canada. In their years, Bosch's With You went through several personnel changes, though the creative core of guitarists Dima T. Pilot and Andrei B. remained relevant and meaningful. This is well structured and rich in textures post-rock with moody melodic lines, soft intelligent rhythmics, and lots of organic and found noises.
Following on from the ebullient warmth of the critically acclaimed "Priest Lake Circa ’88", "Under The Sodium Lights" is Drew Sullivan’s latest ambient epic. The album feels like a distillation of the three stunning releases that preceded it - and as such is Sullivan’s finest work to date. The delicate interplay between focused melodic details and blurred washes of sound draws the listener into a hypnotised state, where the waking world and the world of sleep cascade in and out of balance…
Impressive debut recording. Meena hails from Austria. She sings without any accent. She's got plenty of feeling in her singing, she can wail, she can shout and whisper. Meena's onstage power and authentic voice have aroused interest in blues aficionados around the globe. Her approach to music is something special, powered by her desire to deliver her art. Excellent. The recordings were supervised by Jim Gaines in Memphis. Special guests: Joanne Shaw Taylor, Eric Sardinas, Erja Lyytinen, Coco Montoya, etc. Producer legend Jim Gaines (Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Lee Hooker, Santana,…) once praised Meena Cryle as „one of the best singers I`ve worked with in 20 years. She is what we call in the business an `old soul`. She`s got the voice and she`s got the passion…“
Tempest has a band name that might suggest a group of sneering, leather-wearing, head-banging metal heads, but the group's music is less threatening and more expansive than its name suggests. Tempest plays traditional Celtic music with a rock & roll intensity that's accented by a wide range of influences from the blues to American country music, Cajun 2-steps, and Arabic music, with some old-time San Francisco psychedelic flair…
