The title track is one of the most recorded jazz songs in history and Billie Holiday's interpretation on this 1957 release is arguably considered one of the best, if not the definitive version. Producer Norman Granz brings out the best of her voice on this album from late in her career, accompanied by a superb band that includes Ben Webster on tenor sax.

One of the giants of the alto saxophone, Johnny Hodges was perhaps the most important soloist and sideman in Duke Ellington's orchestra from 1928 up to Hodges' death in 1970. The self-taught player made many solo forays during his long career - one of his '50s outfits included a young John Coltrane - but history remembers Hodges for his virtuosic sidemanship, particularly his sensitive rendering of ballads.

Arthur C. Danto – Che cos’e l’arte (2014)
Italian | Johan & Levi | 2014 | EPUB/PDF | Pages 126 | ISBN: 8860101220 | 5 MB

In questo suo ultimo volume, uscito pochi mesi prima della sua scomparsa, il famoso critico Arthur C. Danto risponde alla fondamentale e complessa domanda “Che cos’è l’arte?”. Monografia filosofica e riflessione biografica allo stesso tempo, la raccolta di saggi che compongono il volume vuole confutare la diffusa interpretazione di arte come “concetto indefinibile” per individuarne invece le proprietà e i significati universali. Rifacendosi al pensiero filosofico di Descartes, Kant e Hegel, Danto supera il concetto estetico e conclude che l’opera d’arte è sempre definita da due elementi fondamentali, il significato e la sua rappresentazione materica, a cui si aggiunge il contributo dello spettatore, l’interpretazione.

Brilliant music from trombonist Shigeharu Mukai – an artist who was not only a hell of a soloist in the 70s, but also a great musical visionary – with an ear that makes records like this a lasting treasure! The album features three long tracks – each a small sort of painting in sound – still with a soulful swing that keeps things moving, but filled with rich ideas that come not just from Mukai's trombone, but from the assemblage of musicians that join him for the date. At a time when records like this could be overindulgent or just too darn loose in some folks' hands, Mukai manages to hold the whole thing together with this lyrical brilliance – in extremely evocative ways that never get old.

"Smother" is the third studio album by British indie rock/dream pop band Wild Beasts released in 2011 by Domino Records. It reached #17 in the UK Albums Chart. According to the band, it represents a more synthesiser-based sound than previous efforts, influenced by "moving to Dalston", Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector, minimalist composer Steve Reich, noise pop duo Fuck Buttons, and Mary Shelley's book, Frankenstein. They've kept their distinct sound intact: oscillating falsetto and baritone vocals, lyrical wit, and a penchant for seedier topics. However, this album incorporates rich electronic textures and a subtlety of melody not heard in their earlier work. Wild Beasts fans will not be disappointed.
