Although Chet Baker's recordings from late in his life varied dramatically in quality, this series of studio sessions is a high point in his career. After having his trumpet stolen, he plays beautifully with a borrowed flügelhorn throughout most of these songs with a powerful tone, especially on "Baby Breeze" and Hal Galper's intense "This Is the Thing." Baker delivers some strong vocals on the session led by pianist Bobby Scott, though Scott's huge hit "A Taste of Honey" is marred somewhat by his odd honky tonk piano in the background.
A limited edition of the Camaron de la Isla 'Integral' box-set. It represents a veritable journey through his life and singing. It includes 21 original albums. The first 17 of them were made in recording studios by Camaron from 1969 to 1992 while he was alive. The title of his new album in 1975 seems to indicate the path politics would take, because of its reference to "majestad" (majesty, or King). "Arte y majestad" is a work in the Camaron manner as few others -his styles and vocal twistings are presents in each track, although the authorship of the cuts is still signed by Antonio Sanchez. To prove it, all that is needed is to listen to the "soleares", "tarantas" (the credits say "tarantos"), "seguiriyas" and "bulerias", outstanding the one dedicated to his admired Curro Romero, in which Paco de Lucia gave a preview of some sounds from the coming "Almoraima".

Eden a persistent utopia, a quest as fascinating as it is incongruous, has never ceased to obsess the collective imagination. With credits shaped as a travel diary, and dream-like landscapes shot in HD, this documentary tries to immortalize today's earthly paradises. The two directors traveled all over the world, from Buthan to Cuba, from Polynesia to Brittany, observing and interviewing those who are after this crazy quest that leads to Eden. On their way, they question this universal myth, retracing its evolution through the ages, and its different representations in the various civilizations.
