This album embodies Volume 2 of the great event which was recorded in December 1976 over two nights at the intimate Pawnshop jazz club in Stockholm and considered one of the most famous audiophile recording in music. Both the musicianship and the engineering came together in a magical symbiosis captured on this enduring classic. Recording engineer Gert Palmcrantz used one pair of microphones spaced eight inches apart for the main pick-up, with a couple of microphones placed to register the “live” atmosphere and a few discrete support mikes, all recorded on a pair of two-track Nagra tape recorders in the restaurant kitchen!

Ralph Samuelson - The Universal Flute (2016)
Contemporary Classical, World | Innova 942 | 2016 | EAC (FLAC image, cue, log) | Booklet | Various File Hosts
Ralph Samuelson (shukuhachi), Yoko Hiraoka (koto, shamisen and voice), Tomoko Sugawara (kugo harp), Steve Gorn (bansuri)

Shakuhachi players of old followed the path of ichion-jobutsu, or “enlightenment in a single tone.” The spiritual element of the simple bamboo flute with its notched mouthpiece and five fingerholes is essential to its existence, and part of what led Henry Cowell to refer to it as “the universal flute.” Ralph Samuelson’s album shares that name, and presents remarkably evocative works for the shakuhachi by American composers.

Daniel Wohl (electronics, keyboards, vocals), Bang On A Can All-Stars, Iktus Percussion, MIVOS Quartet, Mantra Percussion, Olga Bell (voice), Caroline Shaw (voice)

"Holographic is about exploring different worlds – improbable combinations of sounds – hidden and imaginary sonic landscapes both acoustic and electronic," explained Wohl (b. 1980), "By processing or re-sampling more traditional instruments like strings, percussion, or the human voice, I wanted to create music that has a strong link to the past while at the same time being rooted in what I listen to on a daily basis. I was hoping to retain the warmth and inconsistencies of human playing while interfacing with the technologies that are available to all of us."

Brigid Burke (Bb/bass clarinet, whistles, electronics), Steve Hall (percussion), Mark Zanter (electric guitar, electronics)

BHZ’s Total Harmonic Distortion provides some amazing sonic landscapes; this music makes you want to smile and cry at the same time. The album seems to be conceived as a single work of art; a journey through space and time, reminiscent of Iaian Ballamy or perhaps Howard Shore’s work with Ornette Coleman. ...The high level of trust amongst the performers is evident in their improvisational interplay and varied musical conversations...

Following his highly acclaimed surveys of the piano works of Beethoven and Schubert, British pianist Paul Lewis turns to the romantic period and Brahms's mighty D minor Piano Concerto. Lewis performed the work across Europe in 2014 and in the US for his New York Philharmonic debut. In a review of that concert, New York Times critic Anthony Tomassini praised Lewis for his, "majestic and insightful performance," adding, "I have seldom heard the contrasting theme, which sounds like an affirming chorale, played with such elegant shaping of inner voices." For this new recording, Lewis is accompanied by Daniel Harding leading the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Featuring members of Soundgarden and what would soon become Pearl Jam, Temple of the Dog's lone eponymous album might never have reached a wide audience if not for Pearl Jam's breakout success a year later. In turn, by providing the first glimpse of Chris Cornell's more straightforward, classic rock-influenced side, Temple of the Dog helped set the stage for Soundgarden's mainstream breakthrough with Superunknown.

Label: Grand Piano | Release Year: 2016

Nikolay Medtner’s 14 piano sonatas are considered the most significant achievement in this genre by any composer since Beethoven. After the success of his First Piano Sonata (GP617) he turned to Goethe for inspiration, and the life and love-affirming Sonata-Triad Op. 11 translates the poet’s words of passion, suffering and redemption into sound. The capricious, mysterious and beautiful Sonata-Skazka is a masterpiece in miniature and was once Medtner’s most performed work. Dating from his years of exile, the eloquent themes of the fourteenth and final Sonata-Idyll linger long in the memory.
