    World's Not Worth It

    Colored Vinyl


    The World's Not Worth It sees Gavan Kearney working with a handpicked cast of collaborators - including long-time muse Moonswift, Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson, Eden House vocalist Amandine Ferrari and Use of Ashes guitarist Maarten Scherrenburg (on drums) - to create a blissful world of unconventional, yet instantly beguiling compositions. whilst still working within a by now familiar territory delineated by folk, ambient and progressive rock at a chambermusical volume, elements from the world of classical music are featured more prominently than ever, taking the project in a new direction: Kearney's reverence for the groundbreaking inventions of Romantic composers Ravel, Debussy and theosophic genius Alexander Scriabin shows through in extended solo-piano and guitar passages, adventurous chord progressions as well as a tender clarinet-solo on Events in a Skyline. Just like Scriabin would take the harmonic system to its limits, these pieces explore the outer limits of the song format, working with controlled stylistic collisions rather than a schematic chorus/refrain approach - such as on under the stares, which explores what'd happen "if Bach bumped into Messiaen".


    The vinyl edition of The World's Not Worth It comes in a limited edition on 180 gram clear vinyl, housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve and with a bonus cd copy of the album.

    Vivaldi: The Four Seasons

    Tears Of The World

    On June 16, 2015, the blues world lost an outstanding artist in Mighty Sam McClain. Tears Of The World is his last album, and will remain as his legacy. McClain has sung the blues for half a century, tinged with an energy-boosting helping of soul. Since the deaths of Solomon Burke, Percy Sledge, and McClain s great inspiration Bobby Blue Bland, the soul preacher and bluesman held the status of the only surviving R&B singer of the first generation. This CD includes classics from the repertoire of legendary labels such as Hi Records, a country number from Carlene Carter, and Que Sera, Sera not exactly a typical blues song given the full rock treatment!

    Respighi: Belkis, Queen Of Sheba Suite, Pines Of Rome (On Sale)


    Grammy-nominated: Best Engineered Album, Classical


    200-Gram Vinyl Pressing By Quality Record Pressings!


    Beautiful Gatefold Jacket


    Selected By Soundstage!.com As Best Audiophile Recording, 2001


    Que plays each piece to the hilt; I cannot imagine more precise, more lovingly conducted performances. As for the recording, I'm running out of superlatives - it is brilliant and weighty, with tremendous undistorted dynamics. - Peter Aczel, The Audio Critic


    Respighi has not sounded like this on disc since - well, let's say since never before ... Of the seven Que/Minnesota CDs I know, this is easily the grandest, musically as well as sonically. - Roger Dettmer, Classical CD Reviews


    Dazzling orchestral colors, is one one way to describe the music of Ottorino Respighi. Belkis, Queen of Sheba was conceived as an evening-long ballet with singing whose lavishness has kept it from view since its La Scala premiere. This is only the second recording of a suite prepared by the composer - for the first time with the tenor solo (sung by Chad Shelton), and with the movements in the correct order. The music's oriental perfumes and barbaric splendor guarantee the enthusiasm of anyone who hears it. Respighi's greatest hit The Pines of Rome (with extra brasses and organ!) bring a dazzling conclusion to this unusual, inventive program.

    1. The Pines of Rome
    2. The Pines of the Villa Borghese
    3. The Pines Near A Catacomb

    Ownerless

    Comprised of four singers/songwriters (Russell Pollard/J. Soda/Joel Graves/Elijah Thomson), the members of L.A.'s Everest boast some impressive pedigrees, having played with groups like Earlimart, Sebadoh, the Folk Implosion, Slydell, Mike Stinson, Great Northern, Alaska!, John Vanderslice and The Watson Twins. Sharing a mutual admiration for each other's respective track records, the four were drawn together by a common desire to make classic-sounding pop songs in the style of earthy bands like Wilco and Calexico.


    Produced by Rob Schnapf and Richard Swift, Ownerless builds on the expansive sonic soundscapes the band created on their critically acclaimed debut Ghost Tones and follow-up On Approach. With guitars that range from bright and chiming to tense and meandering, harmonies that are both delicate and pastoral, and Pollard's gentle hazing vocals, it's easy to see why Everest have continued to gain new fans wherever they go, from month-long residences in cities such as Chicago and New York, to tours alongside Neil Young, Wilco and My Morning Jacket. Gatefold LP also includes a copy of the full album on CD.

    Walden Pond's Monk

    Walden Pond's Monk is the brand new album from Portuguese musician and composer Tiago Sousa. Following the limited vinyl-only album Insania released in 2009 on German label Humming Conch, Walden Pond's Monk is the first album from Sousa released worldwide on both CD and LP formats. Walden Pond's Monk is a piece that was composed and heavily influenced by the idealism and revolutionary spirit of Henry David Thoreau. The album is a natural evolution of the aesthetics already present in the previous album Insania, while at the same time it reveals the maturity of a composer who consistently challenges himself.

    LP Contains CD Of Full Album


    Arc Iris is the orchestral pop project of Jocie Adams, a former core member of The Low Anthem.
    The singer and multi-instrumentalist formed the collective to present her ambitious new songs.
    The band includes a collective of 4 musicians plus Jocie with additional players frequently
    joining to expand the sound further, to create their wild exploration of all kinds of musical styles
    - jazz, prog rock, blues, country, folk, and classical styles.


    Bob Boilen of NPR All Songs Considered calls the music "somewhat cabaret, somewhat orchestral folk, a bit of show tune and jazz band," while The Deli Magazine writes, "the five-piece
    group had everything you could want in a live performance--intense energy, appreciation for
    performing and incredible talent they are something akin to a soul/folk/jazz amalgamation."

    In A Mirror Darkly (Awaiting Repress)

    For almost thirty years, Mekong Delta have enjoyed an excellent reputation as an independent and exceptionally creative band in the world of progressive metal sounds. Albums such as The Music Of Eric Zann (1988) and Pictures At An Exhibition (1997) are considered classics of their kind. With their blend of prog metal, classical elements and thrash, the musicians are considered pioneers of a stylistic mix which has been emulated by a considerable number of epigones. Now the German quartet is set to unleash its latest recording: In A Mirror Darkly. Martin LeMar (vocals), Ralf Hubert (bass), Erik Adam H. Grösch (guitar) and Alex Landenburg (drums) have recorded a total of eight songs for In A Mirror Darkly, among them three instrumental numbers like the ingenious Inside The Outside Of The Inside with its diverse arrangements. Typically Mekong Delta, the new numbers all have a playing time of between five and seven minutes.

    Nessun Dorma - The Puccini Album

    After years of singing Giacomo Puccini's heroes on stage to vast critical and audience acclaim, "the world's greatest tenor"(The Daily Telegraph), Jonas Kaufmann, finally records an album entirely devoted to the world's most-loved opera composer. The new album, Nessun dorma is a selection of Puccini's stupendous tenor arias drawn from his greatest opera's including Tosca, Manon Lescaut, La Bohème, Madame Butterfly and La fanciulla del West. Spanning the breadth of Puccini's output from the early operas Le Villi and Edgar, the album culminates in the mighty aria "Nessun dorma" from his final opera Turandot. Jonas Kaufmann is joined on this album by Maestro Antonio Pappano, the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and soprano Kristine Opolais. Nessun Dorma - The Puccini Album is also available on 180-gram vinyl and on CD as a Deluxe Edition with a bonus DVD that includes an EPK plus excerpts from upcoming DVD releases Manon Lescaut and La Fanciulla del West.


    Munich-born singer, Jonas Kaufmann, is without a doubt at the absolute top echelon of the operatic world. He is in extreme demand with the world's most influential conductors, selling out opera houses and concert venues months in advance wherever he performs. In 2011, he received the Opera News Award in New York and was made a Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France. He has been awarded "Singer of the Year" by many prestigious journals including ECHO Klassic and Musical America. Kaufmann is also an internationally sought-after concert and lieder singer. In October of 2011 he performed the first solo recital to be given at the Metropolitan Opera since Luciano Pavarotti in 1994

    Duets

    Famed opera singers Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazón collaborate again for their much anticipated Duets album. Already a platinum-seller internationally, this album is a collection of their favorite pieces from the world's most celebrated operas including La Bohème and RomÉo et Juliette. As a gift to one another, Anna and Rolando also sing in each other's native language with duets from Luisa Fernanda and Iolanta. This release coincides with the pair's engagement at New York's Metropolitan Opera in Gounod's RomÉo et Juliette from September-December, 2007. Netrebko and Villazón established themselves as the new operatic dream team when they sang in the Salzburg Festival production of Verdi's La Traviata in 2005 (their interpretations are preserved on Deutsche Grammophon CD and DVD). Since then, they have conquered the world's stages in Gounod's RomÉo et Juliette in Los Angeles, and Verdi's Rigoletto at New York's Metropolitan Opera (conducted by Plácido Domingo).

    Bolivar Soloists: Musica De Astor Piazzolla

    Rainer Maillard (Producer of the direct-to-disc recording):



    I met the five members of the Bolivar Soloists during a recording session with Rolando Villazon and was immediately thrilled by their passion, joy in music-making, musicality, virtuosity and temperament. Everything just gushed out of them in profusion. I asked them if they would like to make a direct-to-disc recording with me. Well, actually I had to first explain to them what was meant by the term. They had no idea what it was - and how should they? After all, these days all recordings are made using the most advanced technology available. We, on the other hand, would have a completely analogue recording and reproducing chain, but that was not the crucial factor. I explained to them that they would not only have to play a complete work but a whole LP side in a single take, and that not even one note could be corrected later; the recording sessions would be far more intensive, their pulse rate would rocket during the recording, they would have a quite different feeling when listening to the recording on LP rather than CD, and the musicians and recording team would work together very closely. Ultimately, a direct-to-disc recording would definitely sound quite different to a CD production. That was what I told them. The Bolivar Soloists accepted the offer and it was immediately clear to them that for such a unique project they would record works by their revered Astor Piazzolla.
    Time passed, but at last we arrived at a date for the recording of seven tangos. The whole process of making a direct-to-disc recording is completely different from a usual recording. During our four days together the first day was given over completely to rehearsing, without a single microphone in the recording studio. The reason is simple: the musicians simply cannot depend on the technical refinement and possibilities of modern sound manipulation. No overdubbing or editing is possible. What one played was exactly what would be heard later - nothing more and nothing less. There were no compromises - preparation is everything. On day three we concerned ourselves with the sound check. The positioning of the musicians, the microphones to be used and their positioning, the level ratio, the echoes, everything was checked and re-checked again and again (we used an analogue tape recorder for this) and then optimized, because of course the same thing was applicable to both the recording team and the musicians: once the recording has taken place, nothing can be done to alter the sound.



    On the evening of the third day we all felt confident enough to be able to make the real recording the next day. And we even ventured to make a further experiment in that we invited friends and colleagues to attend the recording session.
    On 17 January 2012 our direct-to-disc recording finally took place. The musicians stood in a circle, surrounded by a small audience. The timing of the beginning of the actual recording had to be discussed briefly because the musicians can only begin with the recording when the lead-in groove of the lacquer disc has been cut. And then we were off; there was no second chance. The Bolivar Soloists played like the devil (or like angels, depending on how you look at it). We cut five lacquers in all, three times the A side, and twice the B side. In between the recordings we took a short break during which intensive discussions took place. After the last take (in this case this was equivalent to the cutting of an LP side) the tension subsided, and we all hugged one another. Juan Manuel, the violinist, even asserted that he had never played so well in all his life. What a statement! And what better reason could one have for using this particular recording technique. Now all we had to do was write the numbers of the recordings on the lacquer discs and cross our fingers that nothing disastrous would happen to them during transport or at the pressing plant. You see, during the pressing procedure of a direct-to-disc recording the adage still holds good: a re-do or undo is just not on.

    Bryce Dessner: Aheym (On Sale)


    45 RPM Mastered Double Gatefold LP


    LP Contains CD of Full Album


    Aheym is an astonishing collaboration between National
    guitarist Bryce Dessner and journeyman new music string
    quartet the Kronos Quartet. Performing four compositions by
    Dessner, the Kronos Quartet champion an exciting young
    composer, continuing a history of presenting new and
    important works and composers that stretches back to their
    founding in 1973. Dessner has a history of composition that
    predates his membership in the National, and represents a new
    generation who are blurring the lines between rock and
    contemporary classical music.


    From the raw emotional
    overtones of Aheym to the soaring choral crescendo - courtesy
    of the Brooklyn Youth Chorus - of Tour Eiffel, Bryce Dessner's
    music for the Kronos Quartet will delight longtime followers of
    Kronos' work with Steve Reich, Philip Glass and others, and will
    challenge and surprise the National's many fans. At the close of
    day, Aheym addresses many of the same aches and dreams as
    the music of the National, and it is the breaking down of these
    artificial barriers of genre and performance that Bryce Dessner
    has made a life's work.

    Trying To Live My Life Without You

    Otis Clay is one of the premier deep soul and gospel singers working today. His raw, fiery vocals drive an energetic and danceable blend of soul, r&b and blues in the tradition of such deep soul singers as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and Solomon Burke.


    A master showman, Otis Clay stays in demand for festival and concert appearances in the U.S., Europe and Japan. Noteworthy recent appearances include headlining The 2006 Japan Blues and Soul Festival Tour, headlining the opening night and being Honorary President of The 2006 Blues Passions Festival in Cognac, France a special guest appearance at The Chicago Emmy Awards in Nov., 2006 and the 2007 Chicago Gospel Music Festival.


    Born in Waxhaw, Mississippi, Clay began his career in gospel singing with groups such as The Pilgrim Harmonizers, The Gospel Songbirds and the legendary Sensational Nightingales. His recording of When The Gates Swing Open was a hit in the mid-80's and is included on The Gospel Truth cd released on Blind Pig Records. Both When The Gates Swing Open and The Gospel Truth remain staples on gospel radio today. As a singer and producer, Otis Clay remains very active in gospel. Walk A Mile In My Shoes, a new cd featuring Otis' version of this classic song has been released on his own Echo Records label.


    Clay launched and established his career as a deep soul singer with his first recordings made in the mid-60s for George Leaner's One-derful label in Chicago. A series of hit singles including Trying To Live My Life Without You produced by Willie Mitchell in Memphis for Hi Records followed in the '70's. Otis has also recorded for the Cotillion, Kayvette, Elka and Rounder labels as well as his own Echo Records. The intensity and passion of his live shows are captured on Soul Man: Live in Japan (Rounder) and Respect Yourself (Blind Pig) recorded live at The Lucerne Blues Festival in Switzerland.


    A long time resident of Chicago's West Side, Otis Clay is actively involved as a board member of People For New Direction, a community-based non-profit creating economic initiatives to address a number of issues on the West Side. People For New Direction consists of West Side businessmen and women, doctors, ministers and others who believe strongly in giving something back to the community where they live and work.


    As Chairman of The Board of the non-profit Tobacco Road, Inc. (TRI, Inc.), Otis was heavily involved in the extensive planning, fundraising and development of The Harold Washington Cultural Center at 47th and King Drive which has served as the cornerstone for the revitalization and redevelopment of the historic Bronzeville neighborhood. The Cultural Center, which includes the state-of-the-art 1,000 seat Com-Ed Performing Arts Theatre, is built on the former site of The Regal Theatre, the legendary venue for national and Chicago-based r&b/soul, blues, jazz and comedy stars.


    Whether bringing audiences around the globe to their feet with his fiery brand of soul and gospel or working tirelessly with community and church leaders to provide better economic and cultural opportunities for West and South Side Chicago residents, Otis Clay has proven himself to be a national treasure.
