Duke Ellington & John Coltrane by Duke Ellington, John Coltrane

Duke Ellington & John Coltrane by Duke Ellington, John Coltrane

I like the fall and San Francisco fog, this album takes me there in a sentimental mood.

  • Forget about green power, electric cars, solar cars and hybrids, I want a car that runs on the music of Horace Silver. Now that's what I call a nice ride!! :)

  • Ok, I love the photo of the baboon on the cover of Baboon Moon, but I also love the music, especially when I'm in a wabi sabi mood.

  • Margaret Leng Tan's brave and beautiful toy piano interpretations of Erik Satie, Ralph Mostel, John Lennon, Stephen Montague,Guy Klucevsek, and even Beethoven has added a nice new texture in my music collection.

Juan DAliaga is proud to launch Now Playing’s first CD, which represents a lifetime of songwriting ambitions. The songs are conceived by Juan DAliaga in collaboration with producer and musician, Dave Levene and his collaborative partner the lyricist, Dale Lawrence. After an exhaustive search, during which time several singers passed the initial audition and were even recorded, Dave finally selected twenty three year old Will Barron from Cumming, Georgia to be the definitive voice of the band. Will’s youthful exuberance, vocal range and crucially his “feel” for the material made him the inevitable choice. With the band’s lead singer in place Now Playing was ready to record their first album. Juan and Dave met in Peru in the late sixties and early seventies where the two began writing and arranging songs. Those songs are now being revisited with state of the art technology and a brand new generation of music. Check out their website here http://www.nowplayingband.com/

Either you can change with the tides or get swept away in their wake. Either you can grow or you can stagnate. Either you can stand out or simply be another face in the crowd. With their third album, American Capitalist [Prospect Park], Five Finger Death Punch—Ivan Moody [Vocals], Zoltan Bathory [Guitar], Jason Hook [Guitar], Jeremy Spencer [Drums], and Chris Kael [Bass]—morph into the melodic heavy metal machine that they’ve been moving towards since their 2007 debut, The Way of the Fist. Not only is their sound bigger; it’s better. Not only has the music become more intricate; it’s become more infectious. Not only are they more direct; they’re more dangerous.

Staind dove into bleaker recesses than ever before and surfaced with their heaviest and most hypnotic album to date, STAIND, their self-titled, seventh studio album. The multi-platinum Massachusetts hard rock outfit—Aaron Lewis, Mike Mushok, and Johnny "Old School" April—pushed itself to the very brink. There was struggle and strife, but, as a result, Staind constructed a collection of chaotically melodic songs that hearken back to their 1999 major label debut, Dysfunction, while wielding an instrumental and lyrical prowess that could only be cultivated by 16 years of writing, recording, and touring together. Along the way, the band forged a melodic musical maelstrom that served as solace for fans of all ages. They sold 15 million albums worldwide, had eight top ten singles across multiple formats with three songs hitting number one, and wrote the most-played rock song of the past decade, "It's Been Awhile."

Florence herself is a mass of contradictions: she’s tough yet she’s terrified, a bundle of nerves and passion, of darkness and pure joy. “I feel things quite intensely, which is why the music has to be so intense. I’m either really sad or really happy, I’m tired or completely manic. That’s when I’m at my most creative, but it’s also dangerous for me. I feel I could write some good songs, or break some hearts. Or tables. Or glasses.” As for The Machine, it’s a flexible beast. It can go right down to Florence and a drum kit or a piano, but right now it’s a seven-piece band including long-term collaborators Rob Ackroyd (guitar), Chris Hayden (drums), Isabella Summers (keyboards) and Tom Monger (harp). (Info duplicated from florence+themachine.net). The new album, Ceremonials, dropped October 31st in the UK.

Evanescence’s third album is self titled for a reason: 15 years after its formation, the multi-platinum band has made the most collaborative, united album of its career. And it rocks. “Coming back together is such a beautiful and happy thing,” co-founder and lead singer Amy Lee says of making “Evanescence,” the group’s first album since 2006’s “The Open Door.” “We’d bring a song to the whole band and arrange it in a group. That’s something that really stands out against the other records. There’s a tight band at the center of everything, giving it a very tangible energy.” The cohesion is evident in every note. The album, produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Alice In Chains, Def Tones), packs a wallop with a unified vision that can only come from a group working together as a creative unit. Led by Lee’s operatic, passionate vocals, Evanescence has sold close to 25 million albums since its 2003 debut, “Fallen.” (Info duplicated from Evanescence.com).

Lou Reed and Metallica's "Lulu" falls from the same tree as Heavy Metal, Prog-Rock, and Opera. Although "Lulu" fits in the tight sonic space Scott Walker cut into pop music, I like to think of "Lulu" as Opera, or a contemporary refection of that genre. On the other hand, "Lulu" could also be looked at as an audio book, which in someways is more exciting. Still I would love to see how "Lulu" might be translated for the stage or as a silent movie soundtrack.

"See... I love this album, not because William Shatner is the Captain, but because Shatner's tongue-in-cheek vocals are alway filled his trademark melodramatic sincerity that bounce back and forth between beat poetics and comedy. "Seeking Major Tom" could have been grounded by the gravity of the cool pop alternative delivery that performers such as Grace Jones or Lee Hazlewood are known for—and that would have been great, after all guest appearances include Zakk Wylde, Sheryl Crow, Ritchie Blackmore, Lyle Lovett, Steve Miller, Peter Frampton, members of The Strokes, The Kinks, Tangerine Dream, Alice In Chains, Deep Purple, Yes, MC5 and other pop icons—instead Shatner leverages his "Space Cowboy" legacy as a theme for self-parody, which is much more fun. The songs on the "Seeking Major Tom" collection, a bag of sentimental pop-rock standards from the space age are also ripe for for parody, and Shatner makes sure that each one has been spiked with enough ironic moxie to make a Vulcan laugh.
