This is one of the most highly acclaimed soul albums of the 1970s. A longtime innovator at Motown, Robinson responded to the Funk revolution in black music (Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield, Al Green) with an effective counterpoint: the stylish and mature album A Quiet Storm. This landmark album spawned and lent its name to the "Quiet Storm" musical programming format, a format still adopted by radio stations across America 40 years later.

Una generazione è passata da quando i pionieri misero piede sulla superficie di Marte. Il processo di trasformazione che dovrebbe portare il pianeta rosso a essere in tutto e per tutto simile alla Terra continua. Eppure, nonostante la colonizzazione sia una conquista inimmaginabile per l’umanità fino a pochi decenni prima, c’è chi è pronto a tutto per scongiurare che quel processo si concluda. Dopo la fallimentare rivoluzione del 2061, che ha costretto i ribelli a vivere in rifugi sotterranei, l’idea di un nuovo tipo di società, opposta a quella imposta dai colonizzatori, continua a farsi strada. Tocca ora alla prima generazione di nati su Marte, a cui si unisce un manipolo dei primi coloni, combattere in difesa del pianeta, determinati a preservarne la splendida quanto ostile bellezza.

Genre: Jazz | Label: Capri Records

Spike Robinson's return to the jazz scene in the early '80s late in his 34-year period as an engineer (during which he only worked part-time as a musician) was a welcome event. His cool tone (very much in the "Four Brothers" tradition of Stan Getz and Zoot Sims) was fully formed, and he could swing as hard as any of the younger players. For this Capri set, Robinson is teamed in London with guitarist Martin Taylor, bassist Dave Green and drummer Spike Wells for mostly concise renditions of eight veteran standards; only Horace Silver's "Opus De Funk" was written after the swing era.
