The jazz hipster is a kind of quirky subgenre that has been around since the late 40s or so, appearing about the time of the beboppers. They combine beat poetry with clever, often tongue-in-cheek lyrics accompanied by bop-oriented jazz. There have been a couple generations of them, going back to Eddie Jefferson and Jon Hendricks, along with Bob Dorough, Mose Allison and Dave Frishberg. It’s a genre that has few, if any new significant performers coming up. But Ben Sidran carries on, through an interesting and varied career. Ben Sidran’s new release (about his 34th), is called "Picture Him Happy"…

In 2016, Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard was asked to put his twist on a full album of his choice. The 41-year-old quickly said yes, and almost immediately knew which one he’d cover: Teenage Fanclub’s landmark third LP, Bandwagonesque. For Gibbard, Bandwagonesque is a record that came to him at a time when he was starting to discover music beyond what he learned from his parents. The Scottish lo-fi band’s tunes spoke to him, and his interpretation of the 1991 classic plays with its tonality, with Gibbard making his re-work a bit more hushed than the original.

In My Father's Study (Singular Lives)

In My Father's Study (Singular Lives) by Benjamin S. Orlove
English | Mar. 1995 | ISBN: 0877454906 | 345 Pages | PDF | 34 MB

Ben Orlove's In My Father's Study is in revealing and necessary ways a most unusual experiment in autobiography, perhaps the most singular so far in Singular Lives: The Iowa Series in North American Autobiography. Indeed, for many this story may not seem to be autobiography at all. Almost from the start, it can be read as biography, the life-story of an immigrant - a representative and appealing figure but quite unknown in the annals of American social history - written by his son.

"With the title track, Ben Sidran delivers one of the most insightful songs in a career full of them; in it, he rearranges the paradigm to suggest how we might buck up against situations that seem hopeless. His timing couldn't be better. His stylistic mentor, the late Mose Allison, would be proud." - Neil Tesser, Grammy winning author and Host of the syndicated program 'Jazz With Neil Tesser'. PICTURE HIM HAPPY is a response to the saying that our music is made by and for people who have chosen to feel good in spite of conditions: you often can’t affect what happens but you can determine how you respond to it. It’s a record that’s right on time.

Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 146:16 min | 341 MB

This exceptional recording gathers the finest young vocal talents in a unique program of songs by Sullivan, many of them very rarely recorded. Currently widely acclaimed for key operatic title roles in the UK and abroad, the ""deeply touching, outstanding"" (The Guardian)soprano Mary Bevan, the ""elegant yet intense, impeccable"" (The Guardian) tenor Ben Johnson, and the ""increasingly impressive"" (The Financial Times) bass-baritone Ashley Riches - who here appears on Chandos for the first time - span fifty years of Arthur Sullivan's large non-operatic vocal output.
