Wise Up Ghost: Elvis Costello/The Roots

 

First time of playing, this is a brilliant collaboration of songwriting, playing and production. Elvis Costello redefines himself from album to album, not always successfully, but there are very few artists such as him who continue to be influential from decade to decade without always being derivative of themselves. Straight into my must revisit often library.

Not a very original one, this evening. But imho one of the best albums I know.

Actually the 'Penguin Guide to Jazz' says 'Somethin' Else' belongs to the core of every jazz collection! Just listened to it myself today. A superb album with some true jazz legends.

'Penguin Guide to Jazz'

Truely a jazz bible! I regret one of the authors isn't with us anymore. I also regret that the late editions didn't include fusion albums. I have 2 paperback and 2 pdf editions, and can only recommend it to anybody who's building a serious jazz library. I also bought 'Penguin Guide to Classical' a year or so ago but I still don't feel I'm an expert on that topic so I won't judge its quality.

Angela Hewitt's Scarlatti is beautiful. I haven't heart both discs,  only samples ( you can download a free Hyperion sampler every month),  but I am impressed. Both discs are on the greed-list.

 

Now listening to this gem (my wife's choice, actually... ).

Enough about those old warhorses, time for something new 😊: Miles Mosley, Uprising

I didn't know the guy, thx. Will check him out cause it's one of the funkiest double bass playing I've heard in a long time (and a real high energy solo at 3:00). I bet he's not half that good on his studio albums ;)

That's the nice thing about this topic, sharing (new) good music, enjoy it.

 

Mosley's live appearances seems to be better than his record, if I may believe the reviews. I am afraid I have to settle for second best (not really a punishment...)

 

Cheers! 🍻

I've recently been searching for the best recordings of my favorite Rachmaninov song, В молчаньи ночи тайной (known in English as In the Silence of the Secret Night), and finally hit upon a very recent release by Linn Records while searching on arkivmusic.com, a CD of songs by Sibelius and Rachmaninov, performed by baritone Jacques Imbrailo and pianist Alisdair Hogarth.  I decided to take a chance and order it, and now I'm listening to it for the third time in a row today.  Bliss!!  And not just that song, but the entire album!  I'll be writing to Linn Records to let them know I'm eagerly anticipating their next album with this wonderful singer.

I’m not such a big fan of transcriptions in general, but this one is particularly nice:

The Cello suites played on a lute. 

 

Well worth checking out. 

 

Streaming from Qobuz. 

 

Thanks for flagging this.

 

One hopes Mr. Dunford didn't have to hold this weird pose for too long . . .
