Composer Claude-Bénigne Balbastre came at the end of the French Baroque keyboard tradition that produced François Couperin and Jean-Philippe Rameau. Composed in 1759, these pieces look back toward the tradition of French harpsichord music, with its individual piece titles designating various members of the French nobility and their individual personalities. Thirty years after Couperin announced the reunification of French and Italian tastes, they show only light influence of Italian style; the clearly diatonic, periodic Allegro tune of "La Laporte," track 16, is the exception. Nor does Balbastre attempt to take after the intellectual density and harmonic complexity of Rameau's keyboard music. Instead his little musical portraits have a mostly pleasant, pastoral mien, with harmonic touches that are unusual and evocative rather than difficult.

Producer Bob Belden has turned reinventing the music of Miles Davis into a cottage industry, taking Davis to India for 2008’s Miles from India, and more recently Belden has given us Asiento, which re-imagined Bitches Brew as a slice of electronica. Now he gives us Miles Español, which finds Belden pairing veterans of Davis' various bands with musicians from Spain, Morocco, and Latin America on classic tracks from Davis' Sketches of Spain and Kind of Blue albums. Hearing Davis compositions with oud, bassoon, accordion, and bongos is certainly exotic and interesting, but one longs for the elegant, stately grace of the original albums.

It is one of many that populates Kurt Cobain's Journals, published posthumously in 2002, which detail the bands that the author was listening to and which provide an insight into the music that shaped Nirvana's sound.Then again, spend any amount of time with any member of Nirvana and the conversation soon turned to music in animated terms. While the band themselves struggled with the dehumanising influence that came with global superstardom, as individuals they never lost their passion for music itself.That said, there were moments of guilt-tripping brought on by an adhesion to an almost impractical punk rock code, the rules of which were often reductive and which Kurt himself realised where there to be broken…

A totally wonderful little compilation – one that starts with a great array of 70s and 80s spacey soul, then throws in a few sweet AOR cuts, and even a few contemporary numbers too – all in this laidback, mellow-grooving style that's totally great! The whole thing's way different than the usual funk or soul compilation – and different than some of the recent AOR retrospectives, too – in that compiler Tony Monson really goes for a special vibe here, and hangs together tracks you wouldn't expect to fit so well – thanks to lots of jazzy currents and a deep blend of electric and acoustic elements.
