Based on the novel by Guy de Maupassant, Bel Ami is an erotically charged tale of ambition, power, and seduction that chronicles the rise of penniless ex-soldier Georges Duroy (Robert Pattinson The Twilight Saga, Remember Me) from poverty up through the echelons of the 1890s Parisian "beau monde" elite. Using his wits and powers of seduction, Duroy moves from a prostitute's embrace to passionate trysts with wealthy beauties who inhabit a world where sex is power and celebrity an obsession, and where politics and media jostle for influence. Also starring Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci and Colm Meaney. Bel Ami is a timeless epic with a modern twist a Dangerous Liaisons for a new generation. less...

Amazon Says: Carr s new project, BLESS THIS HOUSE, is a double disc CD that the artist says is a continuum of who I am. This will be the 7th project for Kurt Carr & The Kurt Carr Singers. I ve Seen Him Do It was selected by Gospel music fans as the first single from this CD. In October, Verity Gospel Music Group ran a poll across a variety of websites so that fans could choose either "I've Seen Him Do It" or "Bless This House" as the first single. "I think this song will touch and inspire believers everywhere because every believer has seen God do miraculous things," says Carr. less...

Amazon Says: The new-school punk trio blink-182 was formed in the suburbs of San Diego, California, around guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge, bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus, and drummer Scott Raynor. The group earned a high profile touring the world with Pennywise and NOFX on the 1996-1997 Warped Tour, plus appearing on innumerable skate/surf/snowboarding videos. The third blink-182 LP, Dude Ranch, was jointly released in 1997 by Cargo and MCA. Dude Ranch expanded the group's audience and went platinum by the end of 1998, due in part to the popularity of the infectious teen anthem Dammit (Growing Up). The album, produced by Jerry Finn (Green Day, Rancid), also welcomed a new member into the trio's ranks: Travis Barker. Successful singles What's My Age Again,? All the Small Things, and Adam's Song on their own, videos for these three songs (whose clips included themes of streaking and boy band spoofs) were MTV smashes as well. In 2009, blink-182 announced that they were reuniting and would be getting back to work on new material as well as touring again, hitting the road with Weezer for their reunion tour. less...

Amazon Says: An exciting new duo, of unusual instrumentation, initiated by American master guitarist Ralph Towner. Towner s acoustic guitar concept has long since absorbed and abstracted influences from baroque music, contemporary composition, Brazilian music and jazz, above all the jazz of Bill Evans. In this programme of Towner originals and improvisations, the sole cover version is Blue In Green . the Bill Evans/Miles Davis tune from the classic Kind of Blue album an apt choice for Sardinia-born trumpeter Paolo Fresu, whose pure and elegant tone still carries echoes of early Miles. Towner s own pieces offer continually changing landscapes for Fresu s horn to grace, in a very poetic and lyrical set whose gradations of light and shade, of sound and shadows, are beautifully recorded. less...

Amazon Says: 2011 release from Russ Freeman and his legendary Rippingtons. Fans that have followed The Rippingtons for any stretch of time over the past quarter century know the versatile award winning and Grammy nominated guitarist/composer and producer has long had a penchant for naming songs and albums after exotic places ("Aruba," "Kenya," "Morocco," Weekend in Monaco, Sahara, et al). But The Ripps' latest recording Cote D'Azur--inspired by Freeman's passion for the French people and the storied region of the French Riviera--is more than simply the latest stamp on Freeman's well traveled passport. Beyond simple wanderlust or a gathering of "musical postcards" from the Southern region of France, it taps into a spirit that's deeper and more transcendent than any other group project to date. less...

Amazon Says: Shirley Caesar is The Undisputed 1st Lady of Gospel Music! In a career that spans over 60 years, Caesar is arguably the most beloved and celebrated Gospel artist of our time. Caesar started out in the early 60 s singing with the legendary group, The Caravans. From there, she ventured into a solo career in 1966. Since then, she has released over 30 solo albums, and has amassed an impressive collection of awards and accolades. Caesar splits her time between pasturing a church in her hometown of Raleigh/Durham, NC, and traveling the world singing and ministering the gospel. She has sung for presidents and heads of state. Showing no signs of slowing down, Caesar has been hard at work readying her latest musical offering, which is produced by Gospel luminary, Kurt Carr and Gospel sensation, James Fortune. This collection of songs includes Caesar s signature dynamic delivery and beautifully crafted orchestration and production.

Amazon Says: Four years after Cantando, a new album from the Bobo Stenson Trio recorded in Lugano last December explores a broad arc of material. Here we find: free playing (the trio has its own, fresh approach to collective improvising), tunes by Bill Evans (Your Story, offered here as a tribute to Paul Motian, for whom this tune was a favourite) and by George Russell (Event VI from Living Time, another piece associated with Evans), Danish composer Carl Nielsens Oft Am I Glad, a Norwegian hymn (in an arrangement by Anders Jormin and folk singer Sinikka Langeland), contemporary composition by Norways Ola Gjeilo, a Wolf Biermann protest song, Argentine composer Ariel Ramírezs folkloric La Peregrinación, and more. Wide-ranging repertoire has become a hallmark of Bobo Stenson recordings. But its not just the eclecticism that is striking: Bobo Stenson, Anders Jormin and Jon Falt take their far-flung sources and make of them an organic music that sings with its own voice. less...

Amazon Says: Grammy-nominated recording artist and R&B icon CHARLIE WILSON is preparing to celebrate his birthday with the release of his new, highly-anticipated album, Love, Charlie, on January 29, 2013. The selection of songs on Love, Charlie cover the various aspects of love that people experience - from the joy of discovering it on "I Think I'm In Love," to one's heart speaking to another's on the lead single, "My Love is All I Have." For Wilson, the love of self and faith in God is represented on "If I Believe," his most poignant song on the album. "The first track on 'Love, Charlie' sets the tone for this project," stated Wilson. " As everyone knows I have not only survived some of life's challenges, I have been triumphant and 'If I Believe' is my testimony which I hope will inspire others." Wilson, whose career began with his brothers as the incomparable and funky GAP Band, has been enjoying an extraordinary solo career which includes two Grammy nominations for each of his last two albums, Uncle Charlie and Just Charlie. The latter release spawned the chart-topping hit "You Are" which claimed the #1 spot Billboard's Urban Adult Contemporary chart for 13 consecutive weeks! In addition to his success as a solo artist, Wilson has collaborated with numerous chart-topping artists and producers including Snoop Dogg, R. Kelly, Kanye West, Jamie Foxx, Fantasia, T. Pain, Justin Timberlake and his recent performance on the 2012 Soul Train Awards with 2 Chainz. less...

Amazon Says: Mythology "Voices call from the old days, Voices tell from the past, Ancient laws and ancient old ways to recast." (Voices opening number from Mythology) Mythology is the latest show from Celtic Thunder and the show's 9th special for Public Television. Filmed on location at the Helix Theater in Dublin (where they filmed their debut show in 2007), it's fitting that Celtic Thunder have chosen to return to their roots in order to film this musical odyssey back to the heart of the Celt. The opening number for Mythology is an original piece called Voices written expressly as an opener for the new show. Voices, quoted above, is collaboration between Celtic Thunder Musical Director David Munro and world-renowned composer Brendan Graham, who also composed the international hit "You Raise Me Up." The core theme of Mythology is found in the opening number "Voices call from the old days, Voices tell from the past, Ancient laws and ancient old ways to recast." It's the story of the Celts in Ireland, their legends, their history and their stories. It's the lifeblood of modern day Ireland and it's influences from our Celtic past, which are still carried in each one of us as part of who we are and where we come from. The set of Mythology is big; it's dramatic and imposing. The new and the old combine. Modern catalyst images are projected onto ancient standing stones, a giant Celtic cross takes center stage and the tempo of the music is strongly echoed in the theatrical and moody lighting. Mythology is by far Celtic Thunder's most impressive production to date, bar none. The road to Mythology began in 2007 when Sharon Browne, the Celtic Thunder's creator and producer, set out to produce a show with real Celts performing an eclectic mix of songs ranging from the traditional to international hits and some original pieces along the way. That show and each subsequent Celtic Thunder show have raised the bar for Irish music and theatrical productions worldwide. Mythology has raised that bar yet again, even by Celtic Thunder standards. It is without down their most extravagant and spectacular show ever and by far the biggest undertaking of producer Sharon Browne's and Musical Director David Munro's careers to date. Mythology comprises of six diverse performers who are each a powerhouse in both their solo and ensemble songs, backed of course by the dynamic Celtic Thunder Band. And while Celtic Thunder shows are known for the use of dramatic combinations of lighting, choreography and set design, Peter Barnes, the Set & Lighting Director for Mythology has upped the ante and has created a stage that surpasses anything Celtic Thunder has done heretofore. Celtic Thunder have now toured the US and Canada, coast to coast, six times, performing at over 500 shows and in doing so have sold well in excess of half-a-million concert tickets. less...
