Amazon Says: Brian Culbertson was a 20-year-old student at DePaul University recording demos in his bedroom "studio" in a crowded apartment that he shared with three roommates above a costume shop on a busy Chicago street. Those demos not only landed the then trombone player in DePaul's jazz ensemble a record deal, but they were released a year later - February 1994 - as part of his debut album, Long Night Out, on which Culbertson played most of the instruments himself. Twenty years later, he's an award-winning hit recording artist, songwriter, and producer who is revisiting that first collection of songs in a brand-new album as Another Long Night Out, and this time he'll be accompanied by many of the contemporary jazz artists who influenced him when making the original. Culbertson's recent chart-topping releases have primarily been excursions aboard R&B and funk grooves, thus Another Long Night Out marks a return to his roots in contemporary jazz. Among the preeminent musicians joining him in the recording studio to play on the 11-song album are the Rippington's Russ Freeman, Eric Marienthal, Candy Dulfer, Toto's Steve Lukather, Paul Jackson Jr., Fourplay's Chuck Loeb and Nathan East, Jimmy Haslip and Will Kennedy of Yellowjackets fame, Ricky Lawson, Michael Thompson, Lenny Castro, Michael Bland, Patches Stewart and a 38-piece orchestra with additional legendary artists soon to be added. Culbertson is producing the record. less...

Amazon Says: Idle No More is full of sweat-drenched, ass-shaking, groovy, psyched-out numbers complete with rip-roaring horn lines, southern-fried guitar riffs, and lysergic melodies. Imagine Roky Erickson backed by the Sun Ra Arkestra or Wilson Pickett and The Velvet Underground, or picture the love child of Anubis and Kali. King Khan & The Shrines are more than a psychedelic soul band with a spectacle of a stage show they are a cult musical phenomenon and simply one of the most entertaining groups the world has seen and heard since the days of Ike and Tina. less...

Amazon Says: The War On Drugs, the Philadelphia-based project of Adam Granduciel, presents their third full-length album, the beautifully sweeping Lost In The Dream, via Secretly Canadian.

It is an immense listen to be absorbed and discovered now and for decades to come. less...

Amazon Says: Middle Class Rut's two members, Sean and Zack, have been playing together since they were teenagers in Sacramento. The band has spent the past four years crafting new songs and allowing the style and sound of their project to evolve and establish itself. They record every song they write almost immediately in their rehearsal space, capturing the instantaneous spirit of a track while still in the moment. The band's debut, No Name No Color, is a collection of these recordings, which they elected to use rather than attempt to recreate the spark of the original tracks later in a studio. less...

Amazon Says: Hardcastle VI / Featuring the late Marvin Gaye. With millions of records sold worldwide over the last few decades, Master class producer/composer Paul Hardcastle has touched generations with his sexy, syncopated gold, spinning musical yarns that continue to move his rabid and burgeoning fan base at its core. The Trippin 'N Rhythm release of his latest offering Hardcastle VI, builds upon the rhythmic/dance foundation that established Hardcastle as the pre-eminent force in composing pulsating soulful sides that transcended race and genre.The early ground swell has already begun at radio with the multi-format leak of the lead single a brilliant mash-up of two period classics, Hardcastle's , 'Rainforest' and Marvin Gaye s What's Going On, an intoxicating blend of Hardcastle s club beats providing perfect backdrop to Gaye s thought provoking musical question, bringing both new life. Early indications signal another multi-format smash mixed and masterminded by his musical genius. With supporting sides like 'DC Boogie', Night Time Hustle and 'Into The Blue', Hardcastle's signature rhythms reign throughout. With a nod to the past and his sights set firmly on the future 'VI' is certain to fan the flames already burning in his base and could once again obliterate the lines between genres taking his music again to heights he established early in the 80s with sales in excess of 4 million albums. less...

Amazon Says: Seldom has the name of an album been more apt: Minnie Riperton possessed a perfectly angelic voice. This utterly entrancing 1974 set generated Minnie s breakthrough to mainstream stardom, its gold record status fueled in large part by its mammoth hit 'Lovin You.' Cut at the Record Plant in L.A. with Stevie Wonder s band (anchored by bassist Reggie McBride and drummer Ollie Brown) in succulent support, 'Perfect Angel' was an altogether enchanting vehicle for Riperton s five-and-a-half-octave vocal range. She could effortlessly float all the way up into Yma Sumac territory while retaining a singular spine-chilling soulfulness. less...

Amazon Says: 2014 release, the seventh album from the Country superstar. Riser is a Country project grounded in lyrical substance with a new sonic power that spotlights Bentley's distinctive gravelly voice, one of the most original and recognizable in the genre. To assemble the album, Bentley enlisted producer Ross Copperman and executive producer Arturo Buenahora, Jr. Together, the trio mixed the immediacy of old-school live recording techniques with the experimental nature of new technologies. Buenahora matched Bentley with the right co-writers and songs. The result is Riser: an album with a heightened depth, an increased vulnerability and a greater sense of purpose in every word. less...

Amazon Says: It was in the middle of another epic Snow Patrol tour of America that Gary Lightbody found his imagination drawn back to the world of Tired Pony. The band were put together by Lightbody as a sort of Americana road-trip and their 2010 debut was a joyously melancholic love-letter to the States. Armed with verses, choruses and melodies waiting to be knocked into shape, he pulled the gang back together. Not the easiest of tasks given there s seven of them; Tired Pony s core members are Lightbody, Iain Archer, Peter Buck, Richard Colburn, Scott McCaughey, Troy Stewart and Garret Jacknife Lee, who also serves as producer. "Ghost of the Mountain" is a powerful, multi-hued sophomore release, a sunshine record documenting bleak times. You ll want to singalong to it; your heart will break when you realize what you re singing about. less...

Amazon Says: Hillsong UNITED: the white album [remix project] is a collection of well-known songs previously released from UNITED but remixed by various mix engineers and musicians. The project includes 'With Everything', 'Search My Heart', 'From The Inside Out', 'Like An Avalanche' amongst others. Completely remixed, these innovative expressions bring to light a new creative approach to songs that are already well loved. Coming off the most successful album of their career, UNITED are more committed than ever to creating a musical expression that is almost uncomfortable in its uniqueness. Continuing to create, experiment with and expand on those musical expressions is at the heart of the white album [remix project]. Beginning with a track list of their most popular worship songs, this eclectic group of mix engineers and musicians brings these songs into today's musical soundscape and in some cases push them into tomorrow. Always pushing boundaries sonically, these remixes sound as groundbreaking and current as anything on ZION while staying bound by the common goal of giving voice to a generation who is passionate about God. less...

This is an essential chapter of a story that continues to be written. less...
