Together with jazz legend and Grammy award winner Bob James, trumpeter Till Brönner – Germany’s most successful jazz musician – has transformed holiday moods into a multi-layered sound painting. Close your eyes and dream: “On Vacation is first and foremost a feeling for me and we have transformed this feeling into music,” explains Brönner

Virtuosic, full of creative love for refined details and at the same time of the greatest possible nonchalance, Brönner and James create an imaginative and sonorous music for inspiration, reflection and daydreaming.

Confirming the cliché “Unity is Strength”, German trumpetist and singer Till Brönner and the American pianist Bob James have cowritten On Vacation, a work of smooth, hedonistic jazz. Before becoming the king of smooth jazz who has been sampled by every rapper on the planet (his Nautilus has ended up on over 400 tracks by the likes of Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest and Ghostface Killah), Bob James made pure, hard jazz, accompanying even the great Sarah Vaughan between 1965 and 1968. A music that was light years away from the funky fusion that would make his money throughout the 70s and 80s. It is clearly this ultra-smooth version of Bob James that fascinates Brönner, thirty years his younger. Somewhat like On Vacation’s sleeve, the two musicians have conceived a meticulous and flawless work that features soul themes carried by silky, comforting grooves. One must also note the immense Harvey Mason’s jazz’n’funk drums which feature on over half the tracks. Amidst the ensemble, Till Brönner’s trumpet holds an incredible lightness and his voice, on the few sung tracks, is like that of Donald Fagen, laid back and carefree. But it is ultimately in the more stripped-down songs like Miranda, those which veer off the beaten track where Brönner and James are alone without rhythmic sections, that the sheer extent of their style shines through the most. – Max Dembo

Tibor Varga was in his early thirties in 1953 when he was selected for a prestigious coupling on an English Columbia LP (SX 1017). He was joined by one of the country’s best orchestras under the experienced Walter Susskind who invariably offered sympathetic accompaniments to his soloists.

Varga was an interesting but inconsistent player. His Bruch is undermined by a quivering vibrato, possibly a product of his studies with Jenő Hubay, a number of whose pupils were afflicted with the dreaded Hubay wobble. The insistence with which it is projected robs the music of nuance and renders it more hectoring, at least in the opening movement, than meaningful. He’s rather better when the music is faster because he has less latitude for indulgence in this respect. The many slides and expressive devices that buttress his reading do, however, keep the music alive and alert, albeit some are more blatant than subtle. His chewy vibrato continues to limit variety of tonal production as the concerto develops – albeit, once again, it’s playing of wholehearted commitment. The finale would have been better had he not fallen back on generic tonal production. The ear is often drawn to those Olympian practitioners in the Philharmonia, not least the winds and horns – the latter led by Dennis Brain, I assume.

The companion disc, on the flip side of the Bruch, was Mozart’s Concerto No. 1 in B flat major, K207. There wasn’t much competition in the catalogue of the time for this work but stylistically Varga lacks the kind of Mozartian elegance and purity so effortlessly assumed by a player such as Szymon Goldberg (though he never recorded this concerto). Varga’s restless, incident-heavy playing is constantly on the move, seeking opportunities for expressive gesture: he simply does too much, too often, and his nervous energy can be sapping. The slow movement is probably the most convincing through passages when upper and lower strings are heard in conversation invariably lead to exaggeration. It’s interesting to hear his own cadenzas.

Mixed feelings interpretatively, therefore, but the transfers are excellent. Crisp and clean copies of the LP seem to have been sourced and the recording date is no impediment at all.” (Jonathan Woolf, MusicWeb International)

The Who – WHO (Deluxe & Live At Kingston) (2020)
FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/96 kHz | Time – 01:37:35 minutes | 2,09 GB | Genre: Rock
Studio Masters, Official Digital Download | Front Cover | © Polydor Records

The Who will release a new version of last year’s album WHO featuring an updated version of “Beads On One String” newly remixed by Pete Townshend and acoustic tracks from the band’s only live shows of 2020.The songs on the deluxe version of WHO were recorded in Kingston on Valentine’s Day this year exactly 50 years to the day since The Who’s seminal show at Leeds which became the infamous live album `Live At Leeds’. The 2020 Deluxe Edition 2CD also includes fold out artwork from the album.

The Who’s golden age has long passed, but this release is nothing short of a miracle. The London group’s magic was shattered upon the death of Keith Moon in 1978; their two 1981 and 1982 albums incidentally drew little interest. Their 2006 album, which came four years after the death of bassist John Entwistle barely raised the bar. It was difficult to expect anything great to come from the remaining duo but then, in 2019, Who was released. The tireless efforts of Pete Townshend, the band’s determined guitarist and composer was ready to do anything to make another album after many long years out of the studio. Produced by Dave Sardy (who we know more for his work with bands like Helmet, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Marilyn Manson and System of a Down), this record goes back to a true and honest form of rock that some more experimental additions (such as some electronic sounds) do not tarnish. Townshend, conscience of his age like his associate Roger Daltrey, recognises the futility of trying to chase after a lost youth. On the contrary, many of the songs seem to articulate the image of inevitability, the aging rocker. Are rockers destined for long-lasting careers? Perhaps not. But they have weathered the winds and here they are. The foundation to many of the songs is his novel Age of Anxiety which was intended to be converted into a musical before Townshend turned his interest onto making a veritable Who album. Who is a not the most full-on rock album and is less energetic than what we are used to. But it is incredibly well written (Rockin’ Rage, Detour), containing beautiful, unifying choruses (Street Song) and some forthright messages as heard on the first words to All This Music Must Fade: “I don’t care, I know you’re gonna hate this song, and that’s fair, we never really got along.” It’s a somewhat indirect way of talking about the relationship between Townshend and Daltrey who don’t compose together. The guitarist writes, the singer performs. After years of a love-hate relationship and recurrent feuds, one might imagine that this bad chemistry would show on the album, especially considering the separate recording sessions. However, the result is clear. It works! The rockers who sang of dying before getting old in 1965 now sing of not wanting to get wise (I Don’t Wanna Get Wise). If getting wise means recording songs like these ones, we won’t complain. The Deluxe version offers a remix by Townshend of Beads on One String and also a live acoustic taken from their unique concert given on Valentine’s Day 2020 at Kingston-on-Thames, 50 years day for day after the recording of the famous Live at Leeds. While it lacks some songs played on this day (notably Pinball Wizard and Behind Blue Eyes), simply listening to classics like Substitute and Won’t Get Fooled Again in this new format is enchanting and hard-hitting despite the lack of saturation. Our old rockers are still going strong and know how to interpret tracks that balance the band’s identity without ever making themselves appear old and frail. A real mark of wisdom despite their refusal to accept so. Rock’n’roll still lives. – Chief Brody

The Vamps are dishing on their upcoming new album Cherry Blossom!

The guys – James McVey, Brad Simpson, Tristan Evans and Connor Ball – opened up about finishing the album in quarantine, taking a break and more in their new feature with Euphoria Magazine.

“It was really interesting because we set up home studios, so when COVID-19 and isolation started, we were halfway through the making of this album, and we were forced to finish it in a nice way individually in our homes,” Tristan told the mag. “We’d send parts to each other’s houses like, Brad would do vocals, then send to James, who then put down some guitar. It was a really cool, really nice way of doing it.”

“I think it’s really important in every sort of aspect of life to sometimes have moments of contemplation, to take a step away and reflect on what you’ve done,” James shared about taking time off. “That helps to put more solidly in your mind where you want to go, and I think for a while we were sort of just doing things and we were loving it, but I don’t feel like towards the end, we had, like, a sense of direction. So that’s why I think taking some time away was important for us to galvanize our thoughts and feelings, and determine what we wanted to put into a new album.”

“More often than not, we’ll go and play shows in countries and not get the chance to absorb the culture. I think Japan was a moment where it was right,” Brad said about the inspiration for the album. “It was at the end of the world tour, I think we were all pretty tired, and staying out there, and having a no interruptions moment was really big. It was nice to immerse in the country, and I think that’s where the idea of Cherry Blossom came from. It stands for rebirth and renewal, the beginning of something new.”

While many musical choices are dictated by liturgical necessity, overall, this album is an addition of rare grace and refinement to the living music heritage of the Eastern rites. It will delight the Orthodox and the discerning non-Orthodox music-lover equally, and, perhaps, in its own way, contribute to greater understanding in a fragmented and disjointed world.

“Cappella Romana: Lost Voices of Hagia Sophia was one of the nicer surprises to show up in my review queue last year, and it in fact ended up on my Top 10 list for 2019. Cappella Romana, courtesy of its label Cappella Records if not the actual vocal group itself, is back with another interesting combo Blu-ray and CD release which offers the Saint Tikhon Choir in a performance of Benedict Sheehan’s Liturgy of Saint John Chrysotom. Though based in Pennsylvania, Sheehan has a long history with Portland’s Cappella Romana, having conducted celebrated performances of Rachmaninoff’s All Night Vigil and had his own work performed by the choir. Sheehan is obviously in tune (no pun intended) with Cappella Romana’s frequent emphasis on so-called “Byzantine” music, and indeed the titular liturgy is cited as being considered one of the most holy rites in the Eastern Orthodox church.”

On the first of March, 2020, John Darnielle, Peter Hughes, Matt Douglas, and Jon Wurster, aka the Mountain Goats band, visited legendary studio Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, TN. Darnielle armed his band with new songs and reunited with producer Matt Ross-Spang who engineered last year’s In League with Dragons. In the same room where the Cramps tracked their 1980 debut album, the Mountain Goats spent a week capturing the magic of a band at the top of its game. The result is Getting Into Knives, the perfect album for the millions of us who have spent many idle hours contemplating whether we ought to be honest with ourselves and just get massively into knives. Getting Into Knives includes guest performance on Hammond B-3 organ by Charles Hodges (of numerous Al Green records) and guest performance on guitar by Chris Boerner (of the Hiss Golden Messenger band).

Let’s get the first big question out of the way: No, Getting into Knives is not a concept album about knives. Even casual observers are aware by now that lead Mountain Goat John Darnielle loves few things more than a set of songs unified by a particular theme. But after regaling us with stories of professional wrestlers, goths struggling with maturity, fantasy role-playing games and the people who love them, or French history, this time Darnielle and his cohorts have given us a set of 13 songs about as many different characters, all trying to move forward in their lives and make sense of the world around them. While these people don’t have anything particular in common, that doesn’t mean Darnielle has gotten lazy or lost focus; as befits his status as a published author, Getting into Knives plays like a collection of short stories, with a similar unifying feel but a different angle of attack for each chapter. These are people aiming high in life, with some sounding confident but reasonable and others possibly deluded yet unafraid. Darnielle’s songs are unusually literate and thoughtful without seeming forced or pretentious, and with time he’s become a composer whose music is as effective as his verse. Getting into Knives may well be the best-crafted and most musically satisfying album the Mountain Goats have released to date. Cut in Memphis in March 2020, it finds John Darnielle and his core trio — Peter Hughes on bass, Matt Douglas on keyboards, woodwinds, and guitars, and Jon Wurster on drums — playing with the sure-footed interplay of a crack jazz band, even as the melodies are rooted in pop. The easy but vital nuance of the arrangements is reinforced by the welcome interludes from the guest musicians (including Charles Hodges of the legendary Hi Records house band on organ), and Darnielle has learned how to sing with an authority that matches the skill set of the band and gives his characters life and personality. Songs for Pierre Chuvin, released earlier the same year, demonstrated that Darnielle isn’t afraid to go back to his lo-fi roots when fate forces his hand, but Getting into Knives reminds us he’s at the peak of his abilities in the art of record-making, and reminds us it’s possible for a band to be brilliant without a shred of arrogance. – Mark Deming

Ella On Our Mind is the second release by The L.A. Network from 2xHD Mastering and Resonance Records. As with the L.A. Network’s first release, this is a new Analog Jazz Recording.

It was recorded ‘off-the-floor’ in 2 Track Analog at 15 ips with no overdubs or edits. Using the purest audiophile analog techniques, this recording of Ella Fitzgerald’s favorites captures the dynamics of singer, composer, and trombone player Aubrey Logan and composer, pianist, and singer Bill Cantos and friends from the L.A. Network’s outstanding pool of jazz musicians and singers.

The L.A. Network project was born as collaboration between two veteran recording producer/engineers and studio owners, 2xHD’s André Parry and Resonance Records’ George Klabin, with the idea of creating high-end renditions of jazz greats’ most memorable musical moments.

Following the successful release of Dave Brubeck Redux, Ella On Our Mind was recorded “off-the-floor” in 2 tracks at 15 ips, with no overdubs or edits, using the purest audiophile analog techniques. The recording captures the dynamics of 5 talented musicians from L.A.’s pool of outstanding jazz musicians and singers.
