This new release is the eleventh volume in Centaurs Steven Staryk Retrospective collection. Steven Staryk is one of the greatest violinists that has ever lived. Here he presents a masterful program of caprices, etudes, and studies by composers such as Paganini, Wieniawski, Schubert, Locatelli, and more. This is an amazing guide to the playing and interpretation of the great solo violin literature. The first recording of its kind ever to appear, (1963). Still the only existing recording of its kind. (2014). This is truly an album that cant be missed, whether the listener is a violin virtuoso, a violin amateur, or a violin appreciator.

It’s an unexpected trip! As if we were in the time machine… From the first notes, we are in the heart of Chicago, back in the Untouchables’ time, in prohibition era. The Trio Nouveaux Siècles, bringing together Julien Chirol, Michel Feugère and Frédéric Couderc, takes us to the Aragon Ballroom. No excessive jazz orchestra, just three swinging brass instruments, from trombone to saxophone within trumpet, each instrument plays a melodic, harmonic or rhythmic role depending on the circumstances.

Modern Classical, Ambient | Label: Deutsche Grammophon

Considering that Max Richter's soundtrack work far outpaces the rate at which he releases his own albums, this Deutsche Grammophon collection of four of his earliest works is a welcome reminder of their magic. Retrospective gathers his instant-classic, Franz Kafka-inspired 2004 album The Blue Notebooks, which features the Tilda Swinton collaboration "On the Nature of Daylight" and introduced Richter's expressive mix of classical and electronic music to many listeners; the like-minded Songs from Before, which featured Robert Wyatt reading Haruki Murakami texts over Richter's sensitive, piano-driven compositions; 24 Postcards in Full Colour, an eclectic and emotive collection of ringtone-inspired miniatures; and Infra, a piece composed for the Royal Ballet and inspired in equal measure by T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land and Franz Schubert's Winterreise. The collection also includes bonus tracks for each album, including a full orchestral version of "On the Nature of Daylight" and an essay by Paul Morley. Retrospective offers a wonderful way for fans to experience these albums to their fullest, and for newcomers to learn what all the fuss is about.

Blues, Blues Rock | Blind Pig Records #BPCD 2003

This stalwart independent label, headquartered in San Francisco, began in a small Ann Arbor club and grew into one of the most important imprints in blues. Thirty-three tunes ricochet between the potent old-school Chicago stylings of Buddy Guy and Junior Wells's classic "Hoodoo Man Blues" and Big Walter Horton'ss swinging shuffle "Put the Kettle On" to the intriguing pop-folk hybrid of Roy Rogers and Norton Buffalo and the dashing retro-nuevo guitarisms of Nick Curran & the Niteflies to the brawny Texas-schooled sounds of Omar & the Howlers and Smokin' Joe Kubek & Bnois King. The label's Delta blues side is underrepresented, although James Cotton and Elvin Bishop offer two great flavors of cottonland grind.
