Der Titel von Ina Müllers neuem Album Weiblich. Ledig. 40. klingt bestimmt provokativ im Sinne gewisser Frauenzeitschriften. Ganz sicherlich spielt die Moderatorin, Autorin, Schauspielerin und Sängerin aus Hamburg mit dieser coolen Ironie der Generation 40 plus in fast allen ihren Texten, greift gängige Slogans und Trendstories um die Frau als solche auf. Das klingt manchmal etwas arg platt und klischeehaft nach forscher Frauenliteratur, etwa auf „Wegen einer Älteren“, „Ich ziehe aus“ und dem simpel gestrickten „Dumm kickt gut“ im Reggaegewand. Viel besser ist sie, wenn sie sich ganz auf weibliche Irritationen durch Trend und Mode konzentriert, siehe die Single „Bye Bye Arschgeweih“, „Hoffentlich ist der Sommer bald vorbei“ oder dem komödiantischen Barjazz „Hätt ich‘n Hund“.
Joe was an easy listening pop singer who died in the early eighties while still in his prime. This collection contains the best of his music from 1965 to 1979. Some of the songs are of French origin and it would appear from the credits that he co-wrote some of them. He sings one of the tracks here (The guitar don't lie) in English, although the other 45 tracks are all in French. Apart from the French songs, there are a number of other songs that he sings with French lyrics. It is clear from the titles that at least some of them have completely new lyrics rather than being translated from the original. I conclude this review with a list of some of the songs that might be familiar to you, to give you an idea of his range of material. Despite his easy listening style, the sources of the songs are diverse, including country and folk as well as mainstream pop songs.
Mutiny Mutiny On The Mamaship/Funk Plus The One will be Expanded for the First Time Ever. Includes 8 Bonus Tracks in a Deluxe 2 CD Edition. Both albums produced by Jerome Brailey. Re-Mastered from the Original Master Tapes by Sean Brennan, at Battery Studio s, New York. Mutiny On The Mamaship is the debut album by former Parliament-Funkadelic drummer Jerome Brailey and his band Mutiny. The album was released by Columbia Records in 1979. The album was released a year after Brailey left P-Funk due to a financial dispute.
The first album from the Bad Plus since Orrin Evans took over the piano chair from departing co-founder Ethan Iverson, 2017's Never Stop II is a focused, atmospheric set of all-original songs. Technically, the album is a follow-up to the band's first album of all-original material, 2010's Never Stop. However, with Evans on board, the album primarily works as a debut for the trio. That said, Evans fits in nicely with bassist Reid Anderson and drummer Dave King, and the band sounds both fresh and familiar. For Evans' part, he brings over 20 years of experience and deep post-bop chops to the trio. Nonetheless, these songs retain the trio's immediately recognizable style, rife with spare melodies, off-kilter rhythms, and subtle, genre-bending aesthetics.
Jack (Willem) de Nijs, artist name Jack Jersey, was a Dutch singer, composer, arranger, lyricist and producer of light music (popular music) who worked for national and international artists. He had his own production company, J.R. (Jeetzi-Rah) which means "Creation" / "Creational world" in Hebrew. He discovered artists such as André Moss, Nick MacKenzie and Frank & Mirella. Over the years, Jack de Nijs and the artists he represented were good for selling more than twenty million records.
Soul/blues singer whose style is characterized by a gritty, impassioned vocal style and precise, textured guitar playing.He may not be a household name, but die-hard blues fans know Little Milton as a superb all-around electric bluesman – a soulful singer, an evocative guitarist, an accomplished songwriter, and a skillful bandleader. He's often compared to the legendary B.B. King – as well as Bobby "Blue" Bland – for the way his signature style combines soul, blues, and R&B, a mixture that helped make him one of the biggest-selling bluesmen of the '60s (even if he's not as well-remembered as King). As time progressed, his music grew more and more orchestrated, with strings and horns galore. He maintained a steadily active recording career all the way from his 1953 debut on Sam Phillips' legendary Sun label, with his stunning longevity including notable stints at Chess (where he found his greatest commercial success), Stax, and Malaco.
Released as a celebration of Foreigner's 40th birthday – its title and album were designed to evoke memories of 4, the band's biggest album – 40 is the third double-disc compilation of the group's classic years to arrive since Jukebox Heroes: The Foreigner Anthology. That 2000 set was designed as a deep dive into the catalog, while The Definitive Collection – released six years later – whittled away nine songs, making it a leaner listen at 30 tracks. 40 does indeed offer 40 songs: 38 songs cherry picked from throughout the group's career, along with two new recordings ("I Don't Want to Live Without You" and "Give My Life for Love"). Among these 38 songs are some relative rarities. The 2011 song "The Flame Still Burns" makes its CD debut, "Girl on the Moon" and "Break It Up" are live versions…
To mark the 50th anniversary of the pianist’s death, EMI has brought out the largest and most comprehensive Cortot collection ever. The set offers nearly every commercial studio recording released under Cortot’s name on 78 shellac, vinyl LP, 45 rpm single, or compact disc, including unpublished takes already released on CD. To be sure, it is not quite “The Complete Cortot”. For example, the collection omits Cortot’s 1903 sessions accompanying soprano Felia Litvinne, plus a 1925 recording containing the second half only of Chopin’s First Ballade coupled on shellac with the same composer’s Second Impromptu. There is no broadcast material, either. However, we do get Cortot’s unpublished 1957 Chopin Preludes and Ballades, along with a few samples from the pianist’s long-rumored, unfinished Beethoven cycle recorded at the Ecole Normale in 1958/59
