Amanda Brecker is a talented singer/songwriter and daughter of trumpeter Randy Brecker and pianist/singer Eliane Elias. Her debut CD from 2008 Here I Am became an instant hit in Japan, and her sophomore release Brazilian Passion earned the coveted status of Swing Journal Gold Disc. Her third album Blossom was a bit of a departure, it being a tribute to Carole King and James Taylor. Like the third album, Amanda's latest release Way To Be was produced by Jesse Harris, the singer-songwrither and producer who's known for his association with Norah Jones. The music on this album can be described as jazzy pop with strong Brazilian flavors. The supporting musicians include two Brazilians (Joao Pedro Mourao on guitar and Mauro Refosco on drums and percussion), Los Angeles-based guitarist Anthony wilson, and New York-based keyboardist Sam Barsh. The eclectic program includes six originals by Amanda and Harris, a few songs by contemporary singer-songwriters, Eliane Elias' tune "Running" and Antonio Carlos Jobim's classic "Waters of March".

Jack Greenleaf, the creative mind behind the project, stretches past his debut album with a much more disorderly effort, showing the true meaning of what he calls "Violent pop". Greenleaf incorporates sincere, searching lyrics with the epitome of intellectually vacant genres, allowing those who care about content to dance along to an entertaining beat while they ponder the complexities of life.

This album is a passion piece … a coming of age project for me. It embodies my fantasies, my dreams, my history, my optimism, and my soul. There is more and more to express each day, yet this album is a launching point for me. So quite literally This Is Where I Wanna Be " This is the kind of album you can pop into the stereo in the car and play on a road trip, or stay at home and curl up by a fire with a loved one… It's romantic, it's dreamy, it's lush and it is swinging!

Well, this actually may be one of the best shows in quite a while. The Allman Brothers Band comes out and absolutely kills this Friday night set. The highlight of the show is a full rendition of "Will The Circle Be Unbroken?" in the middle of an epic Whipping Post jam encore. But really, this entire show was great. You shouldn't still be reading this - you should already be listening to the show.

Ingebrigt Håker Flaten reminds us that jazz is the musical equivalent of a dark star, a musical black hole, absorbing all musical energy and classifications. The Norwegian-born bassist-turned Austin, TX resident assembled a multi-genre sextet under the uncategorizable name The Young Mothers. Sure, let's not call this jazz, because it would alienate 99% of fans. But jazz, in truth, it is.

The album is the third release by the band who formed in 2009 when Belgian Producer and musician Frank van Bogaert and keyboard player William Beckers established FISH ON FRIDAY as a studio-based Progressive Rock project. The band’s debut album was released in 2010 and saw the band augmented by Californian guitarist Marty Townsend and drummer Marcus Weymaere. The album’s melodic Progressive approach soon drew very favourable critical stylistic comparisons with the progressive side of Alan Parsons Project.

"Madanudo" was one of Ahmad Jamal's first recordings not in his familiar trio format - he's the only soloist in a program of original compositions and arrangements from the talented Richard Evans, well played by an anonymous big band (with occasional strings). As the (surprisingly candid) liner notes mention, this could really be considered a Richard Evans album, with Jamal relegated to a relatively minor role, one that could be filled by any number of pianists. (In this regard, this is similar to that "Theme From The V.I.P.'s," where Bill Evans apparently just showed up and played the piano parts - it could have just as easily been Rodger Williams; however, "Macanudo" is a far superior album to that dreary effort.)

Hard Rock / Classic Rock

Deep Purple are an English rock band formed in Hertford in 1968. The band is considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although their musical approach changed over the years. Originally formed as a progressive rock band, the band shifted to a heavier sound in 1970. Deep Purple, together with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, have been referred to as the "unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal in the early to mid-seventies". They were listed in the 1975 Guinness Book of World Records as "the globe's loudest band" for a 1972 concert at London's Rainbow Theatre, and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide…
