Malcolm Arnold - Orchestral Works (2011)
Classical | Naxos 8.572640 | 2011 | 73:17 | EAC (FLAC, cue, log) | Scans | Various File Hosts | 297 MB
Raphael Wallfisch (cello), Esther Ingham (flute), John Turner (recorder), Carl Raven (alto saxophone), Northern Chamber Orchestra, Nicholas Ward (conductor), Manchester Sinfonia, Richard Howarth (conductor)

Sir Malcolm Arnold’s (1921-2006) preference for classical forms is fully explored in this representative but uniquely distinctive programme. Orchestrations of earlier works form the lyrical Concertino for Flute and Strings and a Saxophone Concerto whose bold statements foreshadow the gritty and powerful Symphony for Strings. Arnold’s virtuoso Fantasy for Recorder and String Quartet is a late work, and the Cello Concerto was the composer’s last in this form; a piece which speaks directly from the soul, appearing here in its première recording.

The early 80's is now a quarter of a century ago! Whilst there have been many 80's compilations we feel now is a good time to release an `edgier', cooler tracklisting highlighting some of the artists and tracks that may not be as familiar, but still defined the times. Many of these tracks have only previously been available on vinyl. "Great mix of eighties music that goes that little bit deeper then the usual eighties collection. A mix of classic eighties and the obscure. I would strongly recommend this to anyone who wants to relive that eighties feeling".

Starting with its 20th anniversary in 1991, every five years brings another double Alligator collection, and 2011 was no exception. While the 35th edition –released in 2006 – logically featured 35 songs, the compilers couldn't quite squeeze 40 onto this 40th anniversary disc, even though owner Bruce Iglauer does admit to fading a few endings off prematurely in order to maximize the list, which hits 38 selections. The trick with these albums is to both pay tribute to the label's storied past while including enough recent acts to connect the dots between the house-rocking music Iglauer built his company on, and the more modern yet still roots-based sounds he's released during the last five years. He does an excellent job here, mixing not just old and new, but male and female musicians who have recorded for Alligator over the decades.

Jazz pianist Beegie Adair has given Christmas & Cocktails the subtitle of An Intoxicating Collection of Jazz for Holiday Entertaining. That should get you thinking rosemary-infused Manhattans with Martha Stewart at the Pan Pacific rather than rye and no-name ginger ale in a dirty Airstream with Cousin Eddie from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Yes, this one is classy, if safe and predictable. Adair’s smoky versions of “Santa Baby” and “Sleigh Ride” transport you to the kind of high-end hotel lounges where the Christmas lights are all sparkling white, the piano player wears a freshly pressed tux, and the in-house decorator has dropped a couple of grand on poinsettias. Don’t let any of that stop you, however, from listening to Christmas & Cocktails while cleaning out the mobile-home shitter.

In Memoriam: Hugh Masekela (1939–2018). South African jazz trumpeter Hugh Masekela died on January 23, 2018, at the age of 78 after a long battle with cancer. I was briefly introduced to South African Jazz by watching the HBO series, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Some of the scenes took place inside local jazz clubs in Botswana. So when I saw this album, I decided to give it a try. What a wonderful surprise! The music is unique and distinct, but a close listen will give hints of American Jazz artists, such as George Benson or Herbie Hancock. This album is my new favorite.
