Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis is probably best known for the soundtrack to the film 'Zorba the Greek,' but he has produced an extensive body of concert music and includes Olivier Messiaen among his teachers. Much of his work has a political subtext and attempts a synthesis of popular, folk and classical symphonic styles, communicating directly with simple rhythms and a pared-down harmonic vocabulary reminiscent of Carl Orff. The oratorio "axion esti" is a setting of a poem by Nobel Prize winner Odysseus Elytis that refers to events of the Second World War and the subsequent German-Italian occupation of Greece. The nationalist flavor of the piece is underscored by the use of Byzantine church music, Greek folk dances and native instruments such as the bouzouki, in addition to a vocalist cast as a "folk singer." This 1983 Dresden performance, conducted by Theodorakis himself, is sung in German.

The last work of musician compostelano entitled 'Once' and compose many topics as the name of the disc. But four subjects, among which are 'Con alma' Dizzy Gillespie and 'Smole gets in your eyes' Jerome Kern, the rest are own songs, where Rábade deepens the introspective jazz, very Central European, almost minimalist, which characterized. Abe Rábade on this album devotes an issue to the memory and the memory of the great Paco de Lucia, entitled '11 Paco '(remember here that in 1994 Jorge Pardo, Chano Dominguez, Javier Colina and Tino di Geraldo they released an album titled '10 de Paco ', with songs signed by the legendary guitarist gaditano), which is both the best song on the album as one of the most deeply felt pieces around the disappearance of paco de Lucia. And only for this, the longest cedé piece, and worth the drive.

Transnatura is unique and very complex work of art, it's a bewitching experiment that with use of untypical elements offers music for those who are willing to explore the depths of something evil, wicked and dark in nature, but at the same time it's so very alive and colourful. The band was finally able to show their more vulnerable side, with this bold move they gained in atmosphere and lucidity. Transnatura is an album that brings shivers down the spine.

The LSO counts the finest orchestral players among its members and its principal players, originating from over 20 countries, are renowned soloists in their own right. Many of these players have developed new ensembles within the Orchestra to hone their incredible musicianship in different ways- from recent recordings of Reich by the LSO Percussion Ensemble to unique chamber performances of Stravinsky The Soldiers Tale, and Mozart Gran Partita. The LSO String Ensemble, directed by Orchestra Leader Roman Simovic and featuring virtuoso principals from each section, are a key example of this practice, showcasing the wealth of talent that the London Symphony Orchestra has to offer. Following two well-received releases, the LSO String Ensemble continues on LSO Live with three English masterpieces, two of which given their first performances by the Orchestra.

These are ‘Future Standards’ by The Howe Gelb Piano Trio, taking an outsider view of early gospel and rhythm and blues both part of the American musical ocialization that he touched on with 2006’s ‘Sno Angel’. Now he’s on a jazz-tinged trip, bending the genre, taking it back to his shack. On ‘Future Standards’, Gelb duets with the equally laconic Lonna Kelley as the pair come on like a seasoned duo managed by Broadway Danny Rose in Woody Allen’s film of the same name. Gelb’s piano sinks to a pedal-depressed ambience as his cavalier vocal boasts of new love and faded times, all In the best tradition of the American Songbook that he’s pretty damn cleverly adding a new volume to. "This is an attempt at writing a batch of tunes that could last through the ages with the relative structure of what has become known as "standards". The likes of Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael done up by Frank Sinatra or Billie Holiday," suggests Howe. "Julie London had a lot to do with it."

The Pizzarelli family treasured musical gatherings at home from the time the patriarch was just starting to play guitar, where he learned a lot from his two uncles about playing rhythm guitar. Long an accomplished sideman, soloist, and bandleader, Bucky Pizzarelli has performed and recorded with his sons John and Martin on a number of occasions over the years, while John has had Martin as the bassist in his group for a number of years. But this is the first family recording date with all three present and not a larger supporting cast, except for drummer Tony Tedesco, who is so well known to them he is considered family. But this time around…

If you're seriously into power metal, there is more good news than bad news in the 21st century. The bad news is that power metal reached its commercial and creative peak back in the Ronald Reagan years. The good news is that thanks to the power metal revival movement (which has been dominated by Western Europe), a lot of decent power metal bands were formed in the '90s and 2000s – younger bands that rejected post-'80s developments in metal and remained faithful to the classic power metal sounds of the '70s and '80s.
