On Awakening, Narada Michael Walden placed aside the jazz fusion leanings of his early albums in favor of a more radio-friendly sound. The strategy worked, with Walden having his first Top Ten R&B single, "I Don't Want Nobody Else (To Dance With You)," which also charted number 47 on the pop charts in early 1979 and Awakening breaking into the R&B Top 15. The follow-up single, the mid-tempo groover "Give Your Love a Chance" featured grand arrangements by Patrick Adams. Walden displays his hyperkinetic drumming skills on "They Want the Feeling." Other standouts are "Love Me Only," the beautiful radio-aired album track "Listen to Me," and the tender "Will You Ever Know."

In the song “The Cool School,” Michael Franks asks, “Am I dinosaur? Yeah you bet. I grew up listening to Mose and Chet […] me I attended the Cool School.” In a few short lines he describes what many jazz fans today are feeling: he’s an insider, his influences are hip and classic, a member of a small club, the kind of club that is both impossible to join and to which everyone can belong.

The album kicks off with "I'll Be There", a full-on guitar assault accented by a rhythm section that does not quit. The title track, "New Day Tonight", is a mid-tempo reverie that's elevated by tremolo guitar and delicate strings. The title came to Michael one night when he was watching an interview of a hockey player after a loss. The player said, "It's a new day tonight, we've got to put the past behind us." Intrigued by the awkwardness of the statement Michael thought it would make a great album title, and shortly after wrote the eponymous tune, which describes a very positive nightlife experience that brings much needed relief from a day of depression. Michael's ability to extract inspiration from a mundane, albeit awkward statement is a testament to his craft. It's a New Day Tonight is a modern classic begging to be played loud with the windows rolled down.

"Non possiamo pensare di stare bene se ci dimentichiamo delle nostre radici, immerse nel buio della materia, nell'invisibile. Eppure trascorriamo la maggior parte della nostra esistenza prigionieri dell'esterno, identificati con i nostri problemi, i nostri pensieri, i nostri progetti, i nostri ricordi, il nostro modo di guardare il mondo e le nostre teorie sulla vita e su noi stessi. Ma allora, come possiamo fare per incontrare la nostra essenza originaria? La risposta a questa domanda è stata la stessa per tutte le tradizioni antiche: attraverso il digiuno." Con il consueto linguaggio suggestivo e illuminante, che libro dopo libro ci guida a liberare il nostro nucleo più profondo per attivare le nostre capacità innate e guarire la nostra vita, Raffaele Morelli ci inizia alla pratica di salute più antica che ci sia: il digiuno..

I'm a big fan of Copland. His music can be dramatic, sad, joyful, and just plain fun. I also think his music is a good vehicle for personal expression of the performer/conductor. I don't think this is true for all composers–-I cringe at some interpretations of Bach–-but I usually enjoy it when a performance of Appalachian Spring or Bill the Kid contains some individual stamp that indicates the performer is really feeling and enjoying what they are doing. The combination of Copland's timeless compositions and subtle playing effects can be very sophisticated indeed.

The Dresdner Philharmoniker is one of Germany’s most celebrated orchestras. They have received top laurels for their three albums with the symphonies of Beethoven and Shostakovich: “a delightful combination” (Fono Forum) and “very precise and brilliantly lucid” (hr2 Kultur). Their new album offers a riveting comparison of these two composers’ fifth symphonies. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, composed in 1808, is considered the ne plus ultra of classical music.

The circumstances surrounding the composition and first performance of the Suite in B flat major, Op 4, were to prove enormously significant for Strauss’s career. Von Bülow decided to give the premiere of the new work in Munich in the winter of 1884 during an orchestral tour. Furthermore, since the players had already familiarized themselves with the music in Meiningen that autumn, he thought it would be appropriate if the composer himself conducted this performance according to his own interpretation.

This ballsy album by Michael Hill has as much 'rock' in its roll as it has the blues. At the time, it was a lonely but prescient insight into the world to come. The fiery guitarist and provocative songwriter has a singular formula: intense social commentary combined with expression of love for beautiful women and for New York. Included are a couple of forthright songs criticising America's war in Iraq and George Bush in particular. Hill continues to produce blues for our times on this album. And the album's celebration of the mighty Hubert Sumlin has one unique extra: Mr Hubert Sumlin himself.
