BLUES

Along with B.B. King, John Lee Hooker was probably the most famous and successful bluesman in history. During an active career that spanned more than 50 years, Hooker managed million-selling hits at both ends of his distinguished career, during which his blues covered all ends of the blues experience. Together with the likes of T-Bone Walker, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Lightnin' Hopkins and B.B. King, John Lee Hooker largely created the post war electric blues and left an indelible mark on them. Nobody ever sounded like John Lee Hooker, his was one of the sounds of the 20th century.

COUNTRY

Lauded roots duo Madison Violet are poised to launch to the musical forefront Canada’s growing singer/songwriter movement with their new record, 'The Good in Goodbye'. As the follow-up to their breakthrough success 'No Fool for Trying' (2009) the new record captures the growth and musical maturity of the duo who have mastered their own distinct take on iconic Americana-inspired up-tempo melodies, contrasted with breathtakingly sweeping and personal lyrics. The 11-song collection is an open diary of Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac’s lives as they have grown as musicians and friends. Penned entirely as a duo, the songs range from an exploration of the landscapes of their lives on the road, to yearning for the familiarity of home, each one brimming with a hopeful sentiment which comes from an emotional place anchored in contentment and peace. To capture the intimacy of 'The Good in Goodbye', Madison Violet returned to the studio with trusted friend and producer Les Cooper while bringing a collective of remarkable musicians into the fold, including Joel Stouffer (Dragonette) on drums, Adrian Lawryshyn (Andy Stochansky) on bass, and vocals from Ruth Moody (The Wailin’ Jennys) and singer/songwriter Blair Packham.

FOLK

Even with a career that has brought us an incredible twenty-one studio albums, British folk legends Steeleye Span’s history still includes a number of records that stand out as landmarks. 1974’s Now We Are Six was one such moment, an album that saw the band expand both their line up to a six piece and with it their sound to explore even further their own unique blend of rock and folk music. A critical and commercial success, the record would provide a home to a number of band classics down the years. Thirty-seven years later and Steeleye Span find themselves at another milestone. Having established the longest serving line-up of their career, they underwent another change of personnel and re-emerged as a six piece for the first time in many years. There could be no better time to go back to that iconic record, performing it in its entirety alongside a selection of classics, rarities and favourites. The result was moments of pure Steeleye magic, captured for posterity here...

Over the course of the festival, Nuala and Oliver realized they shared a compatible approach to music making and embarked on this duo album project.

MARKET SQUARE

ROCK

First time reissue of both of these seminal pioneering synth/progressive releases in one lavish collector’s 2CD package…Two for the price of One! "Two men from Britain sounding like twenty..." - that's how America greeted this visionary British ‘70s synth/progressive fusion act and the quote still evinces today the potency and scale of their output. Formerly in Second Hand and Chillum, multi-instrumentalist and keyboards wizard Ken Elliott and percussionist Kieran O'Connor reached to every corner of music in a quest to build in 1974's 'Things To Come', a sweeping titan of overdub. Riding on its success, the two recruited the likes of Hugh Banton (Van Der Graaf Generator), jazz fusion singer Pepe Lemer and husband Pete and Steve Cook (the latter two in Gilgamesh) to record the equally towering if more traditionally progressive 'Psi-Fi' the following year. This collector's 2CD digipack reissue with a 16-page story/photo booklet brings both albums, re-mastered from the original studio tapes, and in the process exposing new dimensions to the innovatory genius of Seventh Wave.

FOLK

Nominated Scottish Folk Band of the Year. Scottish Trad Music Awards 2011 Presenting their second album of new Nu –Nordic music, Fribo have written most of the material recorder here, using the meeting place between Celtic, Scandinavian and American music as their starting point….. This is a new music that has a fresh and exciting sound, where you can hear within one melody or track, a combination between the different styles each musician brings to the band. Styles which work together to create a whole sound that is strong and cohesive. This album is also one of transition and history, it is a document of 4 years spent learning about cultures, the results of time spent playing in many places, interesting travels and good times. All of this has given the band inspiration to write original music rooted in three cultures yet creating a new sound which has a powerful new heartbeat. It is a record of Sarah-Jane’s pioneering work with Fribo and also a farewell, the album highlights the arrival of Edinburgh-born Hannah with her interests and studies in American music bringing the band new ideas from across the Atlantic. Most of all it is an album of music we have enjoyed writing and love to play, so we hope the fun times, the amazing experiences and beauty of our various cultures can be found here. ‘HAPP’ is an old word meaning ‘In good health’ from the Norn language which was once spoken both in Scotland and the Nordic countries, Fribo is in good health and optimistic that in these changing times we can still find the way to the old north...

"With 14 of the best players I know, I offer you"…'Raison D'être'. It has taken all of 8 years for me to complete this CD and I don't think it can be repeated. There are 4 EFDSS 'Gold Badge' holders involved, the highest accolade of the English Folk Song and Dance Society: Beryl Marriott, Martin Carthy, John Kirkpatrick and myself have all had the honour of being awarded it. The opening track of my very first solo album 'Rags, Reels and Airs': 'Spanish Ladies Medley', has been revisited with The Jason Wilson Band, a group of highly talented Canadian musicians. I have researched and arranged English music previously unrecorded from 1680 to 1745. And then to ice the cake along with a couple of my own compositions there are two tracks featuring the glorious playing of the great Beryl Marriott. Musicians with Swarb on 'raison d'être' are: Michael Burnham, Martin Carthy, John Kirkpatrick, Beryl Marriott, Kevin Dempsey, Maartin Allcock, Simon Mayor, Jude Rees, and The Jason Wilson Band (Jason Wilson, Marcus Ali, Iain Green, Andrew Stewart, Bobby Hsu & R. J. Satchithananthan) "We are blessed in the folk world with many good fiddle players. Some go on to become very good. Some even become great. Only a few go on to be a master of their instrument. Dave Swarbrick shows on 'Raison D'être' just why he is one of that select few. Highly recommended." Dave Beeby Living Tradition "His fiddle flits and swoops like a swallowin full flight..both his sense of humour and cavalier instinct are intact" fRoots "...he treats us here to his full range of enduring skills, through hearty baroque to classical, Irish and ceilidh music" Mojo **** Tracks; 1.

JAZZ

The smoothest temptation since jazz has been around? Voilà: these musical gems adorn any wild party or any romantic tete-a-tete. Altogether they radiate a refreshingly optimistic flair, topped with melodious sparkle and laid-back rhythms with smooth guitars, playful keyboards and soft basses. These maestros of smooth jazz don’t need to brag about their virtuosity – they reveal their instrumental skill very discreetly and with great effect to all those listening. They take pleasure in caressing the ear like a gentle breeze because they want to move, inspire and enchant you. And it certainly works: your imagination comes alive. A garden party, elegantly dressed guests, champagne glasses, fruit bowls, sunshine, canapés and chatter. A spin in a convertible for two with a picnic and fantastic views of the beautiful scenery. A room bathed in soft light, two lovers on a satin sheet. Or just a relaxing break in the countryside with something to eat and drink and a good book... All these scenarios for the smooth side of jazz. In short, music for beautiful, carefree hours. Sexy sounds for those unforgettable moments.

JAZZNARTS

JAZZ

Excentrical in instrumentation, vital in appearance and boldly oscillating between hellish grooves and celestial indulgencies, Loranz Raab’s :xy band is the ideal vehicle for extemporations between fever dreams and extasy. Jazz: ambiguous like Miles Davis Trumpeter Lorenz Raab with his splendid "XY-band" at Porgy & Bess Vienna A trumpet, drums, two double basses, an electric zither: in this eccentric line-up any of the band members could be the leader: Christoph Dienz, who squeezes boldly progressive sounds out of his zither, the bass players, who have a hellish groove and a heavenly harmony, and drummer Herbert Pirker, who is at the central point of it all. In fact the leader of the :xy band is Lorenz Raab, born 1975 in Linz, Upper Austria, solo trumpet player of the Volksoper Vienna, hence financially not relying on his Jazz career. His intellectual independence he already proved in bands such as "Forms of Plasticity" or "Bleu". Bleu has published a very lyrical album “Strong Relation” in January 2009. The :XY band, however, impresses through the ease, it dives into dangerous worlds of sound, where soft textures change to boiling grooves and almost become nerve-wrecking in the end. It is up to the listeners whether they prefer to detect elements of cool jazz, fusion, funk or even acoustic drum’n’bass in it. The airy pieces of the :xy band are ambiguous without losing substance. This is a feature usually attributed to the trumpet-jazz of the great masters: Lee Morgan, Donaly Byrd, Miles Davis. Raab keeps to the side of the stage, gives room to his colleagues. When he puts the horn to his lips he tasts the mouth-piece, seems to suck the notes out of the instrument rather than blowing it. Thus this excellent ensemble reels through feverish dreams and extasy. (Samir Köck, die Presse)

JAZZ

This “2 FOR THE PRICE OF 1” compilation features Scotland’s premier Trad Jazz Band of the 1960s producing happy, goodtime popular music. If you were looking for a classic Trad Jazz band of the 1960s The Clyde Valley Stompers fitted the bill. Their sound was big and brash and they were enormously popular. They had formed as early as 1952 and made their first recordings (on disc 1) for Decca’s Scottish Beltona label in 1956. It wasn’t until 1959 under the leadership of Ian Menzies, and a switch to the major Pye label with the legendary Lonnie Donegan producing, that they began to have any real success. Vocalist Fionna Duncan was a great asset and gave them a minor hit with ‘Salty Dog’ in 1960. Despite several attempts they were not able to repeat the chart success. They became Scotland's premier band and toured the UK extensively. Their popularity was short-lived and essentially it was all over by the end of 1961. They struggled on until 1963 with an ever-changing personnel, but were one of the major casualties when the Trad Boom came to an end. The Stompers had some good musicians and produced happy, goodtime, popular Jazz. This ‘Double CD For The Price Of One’ package covers all their recorded output from 1956 to 61 plus one previously unreleased track.. The band is still remembered and this release should prove popular.

JAZZHAUS

POP

The brief opener is also reprise and title track of Marsland dot com. And, as this album creates your wish to fix the repeat button of your player, it is no less than the tiny bench mark of a song cycle, a well-rounded affair. Marsland dot com is the title of Jens Kreuzer’s recent solo project, as well as his debut album. Jens’ main acticity is being mastermind of the German band THE PLEASURE, who are known for (and by) a fan following from Freiburg, Germany to Liverpool, Great Britain and being quoted by German music mag ‘eclipsed’ as “Germany’s most British pleasure”. Here we have twelve real gems, all with an aura of positivity, melancholy and ease. Compared to THE PLEASURE songs these are less pounding, but equally powerful. And touching. Need an evidence? Then listen for example to “Amsterdam” (also released as a single). Even the artist himself comments: “When I listen to this song, I’m stirred – although I myself wrote it. Even more: every time a tear or two run down my cheek. Unusual with your own music, isn’t it? But it’s the truth…” To make this perfectly clear: we’re talking tears of joy! Whether this marsland is like a silent and majestic planet out of Kubrick’s 2001 or just a field full of sweet candy bars: you can choose what you like the most (why not both?). Marsland dot com: ich hab Dich lieb (Love ya)!

ROCK & ROLL

Still a great crowd-pleaser on the oldies rock ‘n’ roll circuit, Massachusetts-born Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon was by far the rowdiest pop charting vocalist on both sides of the Atlantic during the 1959-1963 lull between the big guns of the mid 50s and mid 60s. Not so much singing as barnstorming his way through a succession of hit singles and a couple of best-selling albums, his recordings vibrated with echo, resounding percussion, syncopated hand-clapping, much background whooping & hollering and some stinging guitar licks from session man Kenny Paulson. Subtle, he and his producers were not! Freddy Cannon’s recordings leapt out of the radio with a unique blast of energy and let’s have a good time invitation to party. The first American rockin’ popster of the era to top the UK album charts, Mr Picariello (you didn’t think he was born a cannon, did ya?) also holds the record for the most appearances - 110 - on US TV’s American Bandstand. This explosive 2CD set includes all of his hit singles and album tracks from the time when he was a kick up the backside to the more sedate options of the day; his recordings still immensely more fun than a night in with Coldplay.

SMITH&CO

ROCK & ROLL

More than 50 years after the original quartet assembled as The Drifters to accompany an up and coming young singer named Cliff Richard on stage and record - and after some changes of personnel, fallow years and successful comebacks - The Shadows are still statistically among the top raters in the overall history of the UK pop singles and albums charts. During the late 50s/early 60s period of this celebratory compilation they became for a while the most influential group in Britain, greatly boosting the sales of Fender guitars, Vox amps and mohair suits. Founders Hank Marvin (lead guitar) and Bruce Welch (second guitar) still front the group’s intermittent sell-out revivals. Their original sidekicks Jet Harris (bass guitar) and Tony Meehan (drums) have been replaced over the years but the sound of The Shadows remains a distinctive reminder of where it all began - with the 66 tracks on this comprehensive 2CD set, the recordings that inspired a generation of young wannabes to pick up a guitar and kick a leg in tune and in step with the renowned ’Shads’.

Disc 1: F.B.I. / Quartermaster's Stores / Shadoogie / The Stranger / Apache / Man Of Mystery / Shotgun / Baby My Heart / 36-24-36 / Kon-Tiki / Midnight / Stand Up And Say That / Feelin' Fine / Mustang / Nivram / Bongo Blues / Driftin' / Back Home / The Frightened City / Theme From Shane / Big Boy / Peace Pipe / Gonzales / Jet Black / Saturday Dance / Chinchilla / Theme From Giant / Blue Star / Don't Be A Fool (With Love) / Find Me A Golden Street / Lonesome Fella / Jean Dorothy / Teenage Love / That's My Desire Disc 2: Apache / Shadoogie / Big Boy / Stand Up And Say That / The Savage / See You In My Drums / Baby My Heart / Find Me A Golden Street / Gonzales / Theme From A Filleted Place / All My Sorrows / Nivram / Sleep Walk / Blue Star / My Resistance Is Low / Driftin' (Live) / Be Bop A Lula (Live) / Jet Black (Live) / Shazam (Live) / Guitar Boogie (Live) / Sleepwalk (Live) / F.B.I.

ROCK/POP

Boston singer-songwriter Evan Dando broke through to the mainstream in 1992 with ‘Mrs Robinson’, a Simon and Garfunkel cover that took his band the Lemonheads to the UK Top 20. But this was the tip of a musical iceberg founded on an indie-label career that had set the press purring. Our generous 47-track compilation profiles the idiosyncratic talent behind the classic ‘It’s A Shame About Ray’ album and much more zesty music. The Lemonheads are to embark on a tour of the UK this winter. The gigs kick off in Portsmouth on th th November 30 and finish up in Brighton on December 13 .
