Amazon Says: 2010 release, the first album from the Alt-Metal band in 12 years. At Night We Live is loaded with huge, massive Rock riffs, soaring choruses, and a production job that any big name, big studio producer would be proud to put their name on: only Shaun Lopez, the band's guitarist, produced the album himself at his home studio. The band found itself back in the public eye last year, as their just-for-fun cover version of the song 'Pony' (originally recorded by R&B crooner Ginuwine) started making its way onto the airwaves of some of America's biggest alternative radio stations. And although that song may have brought the band's name back, by no means should the band's reunion be taken lightly. At Night We Live is a powerful record that is sure to please old fans, while letting newbies know what they've missed for the last 10 years. less...

Amazon Says: It's always difficult when you have set the bar so high as Cindy did with her groundbreaking and highly heralded second recording 'Unscripted', voted 'Critic's Choice 2011' by Jazziz Magazine, and one that spawned back to back #1 Billboard singles, to not only follow but to continue to stretch higher. With the release of BLISS, Bradley's third she again finds Grammy award winning producer Michael Broening at the rudder steering the ship and together again they not only grab hold of the bar they set, but leap over it, carried forward by the current of her wave of popularity. Bliss is the apropos title for this set of musical sketches that continues to expose the many facets of this extraordinary artist who laid bare her emotions and challenges in 'Unscripted' and now finds a place in her life where she is finding great peace and joy through her perseverance and increase in capacity. These musical portraits painted with a variety of different brushes and strokes cover the gamut of moods and emotions, open, honest and revealing. From her trademark swing and sass to the beauty and sensitivity through which she caresses the muted Harman, it's all here. Her jazz chops are in full display on 'Squeeze Me' a wistful rendering chock full of artistic expression and interplay. Gospel, Funk, House and blues all find appearance in this new exploration of what is Cindy Bradley and the results are robust and satisfying. Radio is licking its collective chops and Bradley's legions of fans will line up and welcome with full embrace this long awaited expose. The sails are set and this ship is prepared to leave port for destinations unknown. Welcome aboard. less...

Amazon Says: Al Jarreau and George Duke were friends long before they became household names. They began playing together in the mid-1960's in San Francisco as Al Jarreau and the George Duke Trio. The successes of these performances are what helped to launch both their careers. George's tragic passing in August, 2013, inspired Al to record this loving tribute to his longtime friend. With the exception of the fitting title track composed by Jarreau, all the tunes were written by George. Guest artists/collaborators include Gerald Albright, Stanley Clarke, Dr. John, Lalah Hathaway, Boney James, Marcus Miller, Jeffrey Osborne, Kelly Price, Dianne Reeves and Patrice Rushen. There's even a song with George Duke playing on it! less...

Amazon Says: Neil Young recorded a collection of covers with Jack White on a refurbished 1947 Voice-O-Graph recording booth at Third Man's Nashville headquarters. Imagine a very simple recording studio not much larger than a phone booth and you ll get the idea. He describes the album as "an unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro-mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever." Recorded live to track to one-track, mono, the album has an inherent warm, primitive feel of a vintage Folkways recording. less...

Amazon Says: Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock n roll. But it wasn t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice. Beautiful: The Carole King Musical tells the inspiring true story of King s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music; she wrote the soundtrack to a generation. The legendary songwriting teams of Goffin/King and Mann/Weil scaled the charts, writing hits for such acts as The Drifters ( On Broadway ), The Shirelles ( One Fine Day ), The Righteous Brothers ( You ve Lost That Lovin Feeling ), and The Monkees ( Pleasant Valley Sunday ). These classic songs and many more including five from Carole King s landmark solo album, Tapestry are presented here with new arrangements and orchestrations written especially for the stage. Jessie Mueller, as Carole King, is a frontrunner for the Best Actress Tony Award as she gives a performance, now captured on the record, that the New York Post proclaims should make [her] a household name. Beautiful: The Carole King Musical (Original Broadway Cast Recording) is a deluxe package containing a full color booklet with lyrics, show photos, rare archival content, and a show synopsis and essay by the book writer Douglas McGrath. less...

Amazon Says: BELLE is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay (Matthew Goode). Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her status prevents her from the traditions of noble social standing. While her cousin Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) chases suitors for marriage, Belle is left on the sidelines wondering if she will ever find love. After meeting an idealistic young vicar's son bent on changing society, he and Belle help shape Lord Mansfield's role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England. Academy Award winner Rachel Portman (Emma) delivers one of her most sumptuous scores for this period story of illicit love. less...

Amazon Says: The four members of American Authors hail from the four corners of the country, but came together at Boston's Berklee College of Music in 2006. They soon dropped out, moved into a small apartment in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, and started a band. American Authors bring their own influences and experiences to the table, creating Pop-flavored Alt Rock sprinkled with four-part harmonies, spirited lyrics, and contagious optimism. "We're the authors of our lives," said vocalist Zac Barnett, "creating music from what we've lived, from what we hope for, from what we feel. Every day is different and like everyone, our emotions change according to our personal highs and lows and by the challenges or triumphs that affect all of us. We're not afraid to be goofy one day and serious the next. We just want to be true to ourselves and share our stories for as long as people are willing to listen." less...

Amazon Says: KAMELOT have held their very own, very special position in the world of rock and heavy music: their elaborate melodic metal has always opened itself in a remarkably clever way to like-minded styles, integrating progressive elements as well as cross-references to doom/gothic metal and classical music, which have allowed their songs to define their own genre. Two of their most successful releases in particular, namely the albums KARMA (2001) and THE BLACK HALO (2005), are prime examples of Kamelot s multi-layered approach, intensity and outstanding musicality. Their latest offering, SILVERTHORN, sees the band raise this demanding standard even higher, because SILVERTHORN is a real masterpiece of grand gestures, gritty melodies and haunting atmospheres. In addition, the album confidently and proudly focuses on the band s new singer: with his debut, new addition Tommy Karevik from Sweden has proved that he suits Kamelot perfectly in every respect. SILVERTHORN is one of the best Kamelot albums ever, not only thanks to their Swedish vocalist s brilliant performance, but also thanks to the artistic development of all parties involved. For an ambitious band like us, the only target can be to get better with every album and go for new horizons, comments main composer Thomas Youngblood, adding: Youngblood is referring to producer Sascha Paeth (Avantasia, Edguy, Rhapsody), who highlights Tommy Karevik s voice perfectly while flawlessly capturing the band s sonic cosmos. The close compositional collaboration between Youngblood and keyboardist Oliver Palotai, which spawned the majority of new material, has contributed to an album which sees one important element mesh with the other, from the first note of the intro, 'Manus Dei', to the last song, 'Continuum'. In between, Kamelot deliver an extravaganza of exciting ideas, mix prog and power metal on the driving 'Sacrimony (Angel Of Afterlife)' and the subsequent 'Ashes To Ashes', deliver anthemnic choruses on 'Torn' and 'Falling Like The Fahrenheit' and rely on the perfect interplay between Karevik and Palotai on the ballad 'Song For Jolee'. The band was supported at the studio by guest musicians Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Eklipse, Alissa White-Gluz (The Agonist) and Amanda Somerville, among others. This CD comes in a high-quality Ecolbook package with a 24page booklet. less...

Amazon Says: Nonesuch Records releases an album of three Bach works recorded by mandolin virtuoso and MacArthur Fellow Chris Thile. Bach: Sonatas and Partitas, Vol. 1 comprises three works written for solo violin: Sonata No. 1 in G minor, BWV 1001; Partita No. 1 in B minor, BWV 1002; and Sonata No. 2 in A minor, BWV 1003. The album was produced by Thile's friend, mentor, and frequent collaborator, the double bassist and composer Edgar Meyer. Thile will perform works by Bach in solo recitals this fall. Thile explains his connection to the composer: "Bach was my first meaningful experience with for lack of a better word classical music. It was the second recording of Glenn Gould playing the Goldberg Variations. Gould plays with the kind of rhythmic integrity that I had previously only associated with non-classical music: music with a groove, with a pocket, that made you move. Gould was playing that music like my heroes play fiddle tunes. It humanized the whole thing for me and the heavens opened up and Bach came down. I started devouring all the Bach I could get my hands on." He continues, "This record to me is not about this iconic violin music played on the mandolin like, "Oh boy, what fun, he's playing a weird instrument! " It's about Bach being one of the greatest musicians of all time, the solo violin music being some of his best work, and the mandolin having the potential to cast it in a new and hopefully interesting light.

Amazon Says: Rock band O.A.R. are well known for their incredible live performances that have seen them play to sold out audiences in iconic venues such as Madison Square Garden and Red Rocks.

Amazon Says: 2011 album from the Dutch Metal outfit. The Unforgiving is the band's most diverse album to date, a dazzling tour-de-force of state-of-the-art Hard Rock, gleaming Pop melodies, razor-sharp arrangements, and powerful, shadow-shrouded atmospheres. The Unforgiving is quite unlike any previous Within Temptation album. Every one of its 12 tracks boasts a huge, instantly memorable melody, and yet there is enormous diversity and versatility on display here, as the band move skillfully from the instant thrills of the anthemic "Shot In The Dark", the blissfully metallic "In The Middle Of The Night", and the soaring menace of first single "Faster," through to the epic bombast of Iron," the exhilarating drama of "Where Is The Edge" and the irresistible disco thump of "Sin‚ad." less...

Amazon Says: Alt-rock superstars Hüsker Dü called it a day in 1987, but the band's Bob Mould would reappear two years later with his first solo album the incredibly impassioned and personal Workbook. In addition to writing and producing the entire album, Mould sang all the vocals and played many of the instruments, sharing duties with The Golden Palominos' Anton Fier on drums, Pere Ubu's Tony Maimone (bass) and cellist Jane Scarpantoni from Tiny Lights. While always recognized as an astonishing guitarist, Mould's fretwork on Workbook traveled to levels yet unheard or imagined. The album has since taken on iconic status, and Omnivore is proud to present Workbook 25 In addition to the original album's 11 tracks, the first disc of this 2-CD collection adds 'All Those People Know,' originally issued as the B-side of the single 'See A Little Light.' The second disc is Bob's complete 1989 performance at Chicago's Cabaret Metro. 13 of the 17 tracks are previously unissued and the show contains music from the then, two-week old, Workbook, Hüsker Dü favorites and a cover of Richard & Linda Thompson's classic 'Shoot Out The Lights.' As innovative as Hüsker Dü was, fans had to wonder if Bob Mould could take them on another journey as rewarding. Workbook not only proved he could, but did. less...
