A five disc compilation of French musician Jean-Michel Jarre. Includes albums such as "Oxygene" (1976), "The Concerts In China" (1982), "Chronology" (1993), "Metamorphoses" (2000).
Today, in France, they are at least three pianists to have this talent of jazz musician and composer for great formation: Jean-Pierre Como, Antoine Herve and Herve Sellin. If you liked “L'âme soeur” of the first and “Road Movie” of the second, then, inevitably, you will like this “Marciac New York Express”. The compositions remarkable, are inspired (the four movements are connected with masterliness), and never fall into the repetition. The musicians are given some to heart joy: Stephan Guillaume with the clarinet and sax soprano, Stéphane Chausson and Sylvain Beuf with the sax tenor, Claude Egéa with the trumpet, Gueorgui Kornazov with the trombone, Michael Felberbaum with the guitar, Stéphan Caracci with the vibraphone, and the rhythmic made up one of Bruno Rousselet (double bass) and Karl Jannuska (drums) is at this remarkable point.
Definitive's mini-anthology of classic recordings featuring pioneer electrically amplified guitarist Charlie Christian is an excellent core sample taken from his brief and eventful career. Note that Definitive has also issued what purport to be compilations containing all of Christian's complete live and studio recordings, as well as another more modestly proportioned sampler entitled The Genius of the Electric Guitar. Charlie Christian was like a will-o'-the-wisp, a strikingly creative sideman who appeared at studio sessions and live jams during a span of months only adding up to a couple of years before succumbing to tuberculosis at the age of 25 in 1942. On Definitive's Celestial Express, the guitarist is heard with various groups led by Lionel Hampton and Benny Goodman, with Edmond Hall's Celeste Quartet, and with the Kansas City Six (a band including Count Basie and Lester Young) at the second From Spirituals to Swing concert in Carnegie Hall.
