Long ago, before he achieved relative stardom with his Nordic, somewhat new-agey recreations of medieval music, Jan Garbarek produced a handful of spectacular, robust albums for ECM where the influence of free jazz, particularly Albert Ayler, was paramount. Afric Pepperbird was his first recording for the then fledgling label and it features his quartet at the height of their powers, embellishing his muscular and imaginative compositions with outstanding, individualistic playing. From the eerie keening of the opening "Scarabee," framed by Jon Christensen's pinpoint delicate drums, to the hard-driving "Beast of Kommodo" with the leaders wailing bass sax to Rypdal's manic explorations on Blow Away Zone, this is one stellar effort.

What is the Prize, and who pays the Price? The desired and the desirable are often constellated through our ideas of what is undesired and undesirable, deeply knotted into our sense of self, our sense of where and how we fit into the world. These notions of desire form the backdrop to this powerful volume which examines the historical continuities and interruptions of heteronormativity in South African society.

25 years of activity, an original artist, sincere and inspired. A Nordic-inspired poetry that finds its soundness in search of sound, in the company of many musicians / companions Simon, tells us, in this volume, a unique artistic journey that varies between Rock, Contemporary, Jazz, Chamberlain. Becoming an icon of the RIO movement between the 90s and 2000s, Steensland proposes two discs, one that collects a collection of pieces of his first period on CD, which has long been completely out of stock, along with a second record in which they appear Totally unpublished pieces. A distillate of Simon's musical world, a new incredible sound experience.

EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers + Digital Booklet | 62:27 | 326 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Chandos Records | Catalog: CHAN 0687

This is a very good recording of a selection of Vivaldi's "concerti a quattro" - concertos for string orchestra without a solo instrument. Here we have a selection from the vast Vivaldi archive in Turin, selected, as Standage tells us, "on musical and pragmatic grounds with the aim of presenting an attractive cross-section".

With this album, Simon Standage continues his survey of the 40 odd concertos for strings by Vivaldi. As with period practice, winds are added to a few of the works. The continuo consists of harpsichord and guitar, the latter a very appealing sounding period instrument. There is less unity of mood on this album than on Volume 1 of this series. Instead, one is prone to gasp at Vivaldi's prodigious invention.
