For while it would be idle to pretend that this 70-year-old virtuoso, struck down at the height of his career with psoriatic arthritis, still commands the velocity and reflex of his earlier years, his later Chopin and Liszt are a tribute to a devotion and commitment gloriously enriched by experience. The First Impromptu is piquantly voiced and phrased while the C sharp minor Etude, Op. 25 No. 7, could hardly be more hauntingly confided, more ‘blue’ or inturned. How you miss the repeat in the C sharp minor Mazurka, Op. 50 No. 3 (not Op. 15, as the jewel-case claims), given such cloudy introspection and if there are moments when you recall how Rubinstein – forever Chopin’s most aristocratic spokesman – can convey a world of feeling in a scarcely perceptible gesture, Janis’s brooding intensity represents a wholly personal, only occasionally overbearing, alternative; an entirely different point of view. Time and again he tells us that there are higher goods than surface polish or slickness and in the valedictory F minor Mazurka, Op. 68 No. 4 he conveys a dark night of the soul indeed, an emotion almost too desolating for public utterance… Janis is no less remarkable in Liszt, whether in the brief but intriguing Sans mesure (a first performance and recording), in a Sonetto 104 del Petrarca as tear-laden as any on record and in a final Liebestod of an exhausting ardour and focus.

Like the majesty and magic of America’s wild horses that informed the creation of this project, the music on this album is highly evocative and emotional - a mystical infusion of beauty and tenderness - of power and potency. The impeccable blend of Jennifer Grais’s beautiful and haunting vocals with Byron Metcalf’s renowned tribal-trance drumming and production style creates an astounding listening experience of numinous depth and sonic ecstasy. Horse as ‘Spirit Animal’ represents and mirrors the innate life-force, power, wildness, and the instinctual impulse for freedom within all of us. They Were Here takes the listener on a unique shamanic adventure - a freedom ride of soaring potential and along the way they are held gently and safely in the arms of Mother Earth…

Genre: Electronic, Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Projekt Records

Electronic musician Erik Wøllo joins tribal-trance percussionist Byron Metcalf for an elegant album weaving melodic, vibrant soundscapes with subtle, grounding rhythms.
Earth Luminous stirs the memory on an outing through luminescent electronic ambient music where the ethereal is anchored and activated by steady, tactile frame drums and percussive patterns. Byron’s tight-to-the-grid substratum pulse serves as a conduit to Erik’s lush, emotive and expansive atmospheres. Together, the two sonic explorers find a meeting place where vapor trails and glowing man-made cityscapes reveal that we, the modern humans, are the ones who bring into existence the enlightened earth: our explorations illuminate to bring cascading insight…

With a light, airy voice à la Mildred Bailey and Blossom Dearie, although not as breathy as dear Blossom's, Terrie Richards Alden has put together a program designed to show her voice to its best advantage. With Warren Vache playing hot cornet, a swinging rendition of the first tune on the session, "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone," promises more than an hour of great music delivered by a very talented group of professionals who deliver on the promise.

Janis backed by one of the greatest symphonies ever assembled (the 50's/60's Chicago Symphony under the baton of the micromanaging Fritz Reiner) put together in short a legendary and frenzied performance of the Rachmaninov Concerto No. 1. I wish I could stop there, but unfortunately this recording was coupled with a stale performance of the No. 3.
