Within 20km of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant - site of the 2011 nuclear disaster - is the town of Naraha. The train line that passes through the town was closed after the disaster, but was reopened in June. Although residents are not legally allowed to stay in Naraha, a variety of people come and go from the town's Tatsuta Station. The program captures these visitors - who include residents making short visits, staff at the nearby Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Plant, and travelers coming for their own reasons - over 3 days.
The legendary jam sessions on the New York’s sanctuary of the Be-Bop. Personnel includes: Thelonious Monk (piano); Joe Guy, Roy Eldridge, Oran "Hot Lips" Page (trumpet); Charlie Christian (guitar); Nick Fenton (bass); Kenny Clarke (drums).
First, don't assume you have this recording even if you do. For these many years I was satisfied that I was in possession of Sarah's admired "After Hours" session, only to be shaken (just a little) by the discovery that the song list on this new Mercury (now Verve) reissue didn't agree with the one on my LP. Turns out Sarah recorded two albums entitled "After Hours"–and mine was the "other" one, the one on Roulette. Rate this Mercury session as the slightly better bet, if only because of the presence of Thad Jones and Frank Wess. ~ Amazon Customer's Review
Live at Monsters of Rock is a live album Northern Irish blues guitarist and singer Gary Moore. It was recorded live on May 21, 2003 at Sheffield Hallam Arena in England, during Gary Moore's appearances on the 2003 Monsters of Rock tour.
Recorded on May 21, 1970, at Detroit's Club Mozambique, this was shelved and remained unreleased until it was retrieved for CD issue in 1995. It's odd that Blue Note decided to sit on it for so long, because it ranks as one of Lonnie's better sets. The band, featuring George Benson on guitar, is relaxed and funky without being in your face about it, and unlike much soul-jazz of the time, most of the material is original, Smith having penned six of the eight numbers. Although the riffs often owe a lot to James Brown, this is definitely at least as much jazz as soul, with Lonnie taking a rare vocal turn on "Peace of Mind."
