Less than four months after issuing the landmark and autobiographical Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, Elton John re-emerged with a new band and a slightly modified sound. However, the departure of bassist Dee Murray and drummer Nigel Olsson began a deceleration in terms of John's success, which rivalled only the Beatles' and Elvis Presley's in terms of global acclaim. The revamped band grew to include new associates James Newton Howard on keyboards and Kenny Passarelli on bass as well as drummer Roger Pope and guitarist Caleb Quaye, who had both performed with John as far back as his first long-player…
Christopher Cross' debut was a huge hit and widely acclaimed, at least among industry professionals (critics didn't give it a second listen), leading to multi-platinum success and Grammys. In retrospect, it might seem like the kind of success that's disproportional to the record itself, especially to hipper-than-thou younger generations, but in truth, Christopher Cross was a hell of a record – it just was a hell of a soft rock record, something that doesn't carry a lot of weight among most audiences. That doesn't erase Cross' considerable gifts as a craftsman. Yes, he does favor sentimentality and can be very sweet on the ballads, but his melodicism is rich and construction tight, so there's a sturdy foundation for the classy professional gloss provided by his studio pros and friends, including indelible backing vocals by Michael McDonald. And while the hits like the dreamy "Sailing" and the surging "Ride Like the Wind" deserved all the attention, they're hardly the only highlights here – to borrow a sports metaphor, this has a deep bench, and there's not a weak moment here. In fact, soft rock albums hardly ever came better than this, and it remains one of the best mainstream albums of its time.
Four more boxed sets from CAM Jazz presenting the complete works of key artists from the catalogues of the famed Italian labels. Attractively presented, Excellent sound. INCLUDES THE ALBUMS: THE GIT GO - LIVE AT THE VILLAGE VANGUARD (1987) THE SEAGULLS OF KRISTIANSUND (1989) CROWD SCENE (1992) WHERE ARE YOU? (1994). The four albums recorded by Soul Notes are greats. Two of them are for the same concert at Village Vanguard in 1986 with Woody Shaw, Charles Rouse, Regie Workman and Ed Blackwell. Great group, great concert. Only five themes in two CD, incredible improvisation a very good recorded. "The git go" and "The seagull of Kristiansund" are pure jazz in live.
Phronesis are a dynamic trio who need little introduction. Their fourth album, Walking Dark, is the highly anticipated follow-up to the acclaimed Alive [Edition EDN1021], which was voted Jazz Album of the Year by both Jazzwise and MOJO magazines in 2010. Since the success of this release, the band has toured widely across Europe and North America, earning consistent praise for their vibrant live performances. Formed by Danish bass player Jasper Høiby in 2005, the energy and individuality of Phronesis comes from an extraordinary democracy of expression and almost telepathic empathy between the musicians - three of the finest players on the European jazz scene today.

TNT follows up their excellent debut with the more commercially leaning Tell No Tales. Although the album's leadoff single, "10,000 Lovers," gave TNT some limited attention in commercial radio and on MTV, American audiences never really warmed up to the band's pristine Euro-metal. Underneath the slick, soulless-sounding production sheen and sometimes clichéd songwriting lies a very talented band that is hungry for mainstream acceptance. With a level of musicianship higher than the average hair metal band, Norway's TNT offered a prog-tinged take on pop-metal due largely to the stunning vocal range of lead singer Tony Harnell and the guitar technique of Ronni Le Tekrø.
