« Je dédie ce livre à mes petits-enfants. En commençant à l’écrire, j’ai pris conscience de la valeur symbolique que je pouvais lui donner : celle d’un testament spirituel. Que voudrais-je leur raconter sur ce grand Univers qu’ils continueront à habiter après moi ? J’ai alors songé à ces conversations avec l’une de mes petites-filles, où nous observons, étendus confortablement sur des chaises longues, le ciel étoilé. Je me suis senti revivre ces soirées de mois d’août avec mes enfants qui me bombardaient de questions pendant que nous attendions les étoiles filantes. …

Entrando nel crepuscolo della propria vita, un astrofisico di fama mondiale si pone una domanda: cosa vorrei che sapessero i miei nipoti dell'universo in cui continueranno ad abitare quando io non ci sarò più? Nasce così questo dialogo immaginario tra un vecchio e un bambino che in una notte, seduti su comode sdraio, osservano il cielo. Attendendo le stelle cadenti, l'anziano scienziato risponde agli interrogativi sempre più incalzanti del giovane: di che materia sono fatte le stelle? Come si alimenta il sole? Cosa significa che l'universo è in espansione? Siamo soli nell'universo?…

Loose jam feel offers Sumlin plenty of space. This 1975 set was his first as leader. Quiet and extremely unassuming off the bandstand, Hubert Sumlin played a style of guitar incendiary enough to stand tall beside the immortal Howlin' Wolf. The Wolf was Sumlin's imposing mentor for more than two decades, and it proved a mutually beneficial relationship; Sumlin's twisting, darting, unpredictable lead guitar constantly energized the Wolf's 1960s Chess sides, even when the songs themselves (check out "Do the Do" or "Mama's Baby" for conclusive proof) were less than stellar. Sumlin started out twanging the proverbial broom wire nailed to the wall before he got his mitts on a real guitar. He grew up near West Memphis, Arkansas, briefly hooking up with another Young Lion with a rosy future, harpist James Cotton, before receiving a summons from the mighty Wolf to join him in Chicago in 1954. Sumlin learned his craft nightly on the bandstand behind Wolf, his confidence growing as he graduated from rhythm guitar duties to lead. By the dawn of the '60s, Sumlin's slashing axe was a prominent component on the great majority of Wolf's waxings, including "Wang Dang Doodle," "Shake for Me," "Hidden Charms" (boasting perhaps Sumlin's greatest recorded solo), "Three Hundred Pounds of Joy," and "Killing Floor." Although they had a somewhat tempestuous relationship, Sumlin remained loyal to Wolf until the big man's 1976 death.

Sound of My Heart is the fourth studio album by the German synthpop band Hubert Kah, and their second English language album, released in 1989. It was produced by Michael Cretu. Three singles were released from the album: "Welcome, Machine Gun", "So Many People" and "It's Me, Cathy (Follow My Heart)". Upon release, Billboard commented: "Early dance hit "Machine Gun" and current "So Many People" prove to be a somewhat deceptive introduction to a collection that fits more comfortably in a techno/modern rock bag. Although pop radio at large may miss the boat on this one, tracks like "Cathy" and "carousel" may appeal to the more adventurous programmers".

Hubert Sumlin is an electric guitar pioneer, largely responsible for the sound of many modern guitar players. Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, Bob Dylan, Frank Zappa, Bob Weir, Jeff Beck, Carlos Santana and many other critically acclaimed musicians consider Sumlin a major influence on their playing. Clapton proved his respect by refusing to do the Chess Records London Howlin' Wolf Sessions unless Hubert was present. "The Red Rooster", "Backdoor Man", "Shake For Me", "Killing Floor", "Smokestack Lightnin" and "Sittin' On Top of the World" are songs you may recognize from cover versions by Cream, The Doors, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, or The Rolling Stones. Hubert Sumlin formulated the original music to these classics. Sumlin is a historically significant originator of blues composition and one of the last living connections to an era that produced so much monumental music. His sizzling CD Wake Up Call is a vibrant celebration of the past and present, showcasing Hubert's spontaneous, sensitive playing style.

Hubert Sumlin arguably did his best work during the 23 years he was Howlin' Wolf's guitar player, and his ragged, angular guitar style was a big part of Wolf's rough-and-ready sound. The perfect sideman, Sumlin was by all accounts somewhat shy and reticent about taking center stage, and Healing Feeling, his second album for Black Top Records, much like his first, Hubert Sumlin's Blues Party, is really more of an all-star blues jam than it is a fully realized project. Recorded May 5 and 6, 1989, at Southlake Recording Studios in Louisiana, with two additional tracks coming from a live show at Tipitina's in New Orleans earlier in the day on May 5, the sessions were once again organized by guitarist Ronnie Earl, whose band the Broadcasters is used on most of the cuts. The vocal duties were shared by James "Thunderbird" Davis and Darrell Nulisch, with Sumlin singing on "Come Back Little Girl," "Honey Dumplins," and the set closer, "Blues for Henry," all of which gain poignancy because of Sumlin's somewhat fragile, whispered vocal approach. A clear highlight is Sumlin's solo electric guitar version of "Down the Dusty Road," which is focused, clear, and intimate.

Wonderful sounds from Hubert Laws – and like some of his best CTI work of a few years before, a set that really goes way beyond any easy expectations! There's moments of ambition here that really link the record to Laws' CTI sides – that mix of fuller arrangements and higher-concept sounds that are a perfect fit for his careful tone on flute – sitting nicely alongside more easygoing fusion number that really flesh out the sound – some of those sparkling Columbia Records grooves from the start of the 80s that mix together acoustic and electric instrumentation! The album features Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano from Bobby Lyle, drums from Leon Ndugu Chancler, and bass from Nathan East – plus a bit of acoustic piano from Chick Corea, and guest vocals on one cut from Deborah Laws!
