Gorgeous and seductively simple, Batist manages to fuse jazz, classical and the subtleties of world and Latin flavors into a rich sonic mosaic. Much like the genres they so effortlessly transcend, this trio crosses over the artistic limitations of 'labels' and emerges with a fresh vibrant sound with unlimited potential. The brightly colored tiles of a mosaic are in relation to the vibrant bits and pieces of musical variety offered including Sting's 'I Was Brought To My Senses.' Barbara Burkle's pristine vocals accompanied by the classical guitar of Tillmann Reinbeck reinvent a pop tune into a more eclectic contemporary ambiance. Far more than just a passable cover, Batist adds their own musical depth of field and breathes fresh life into the classic Sting tune.

Lueurs is a wonderful recording, remarkable for its originality, the quality of its elements and its successful blend. This recording was produced with Fidelio Music, internationally recognized for the exceptional sound quality of its productions which are much appreciated by audiophiles all over the world. He also included a string quartet on 11 songs, 5 of them inspired by the impressionist era, and 6 original songs. The album includes 9 songs. This adds a majestic sonority and makes for an interesting hybrid: a repertoire from a precise era (1850-1925), a sound fitting this particular era with the string quartet, but voiced with a modern jazz language… which is the nature of this project.

With Across The Way, his eighth album as a leader, guitarist Brad Shepik seems to have mellowed with age: while still incorporating elements of Eastern and South Eastern European music cultures typical of earlier projects - many rendered with unusualinstrumentation - this all-original quartet offering sounds ‘mainstream’ by comparison. Supported by vibraphonist Tom Beckham, bassist Jorge Roeder and drummer Mark Guiliana, Shepik’s compositions feature odd time signatures, shifting key centers, unusual modes and lithe, loping melodies that gently cross the borders of conventional practices but without calling attention to the underlying techniques.

For the first time I have encountered the musical material "Memento" at a small concert, which is a kind of warm-up of the band, just before entering the recording studio. Already at that time the idea that we would deal with a very good album sprouted in me. Hearing the finished material confirmed those hunches with an excess. I did not know the statements of musicians about the genesis of the work and the inspirations that led them in the creative process. So I took the "Memento" as an unnamed tribute to the person of Great Music and the period of cooperation with Him. At the time of recording the album has not been marked with Departure.

"New Skin for the Old Ceremony" is the fourth studio album by Leonard Cohen. On this album, he begins to evolve away from the rawer sound of his earlier albums, with violas, mandolins, banjos, guitars, percussion and other instruments giving the album a more orchestrated (but nevertheless spare) sound. The album is silver in the UK, but never entered the Billboard Top 200.

"Death of a Ladies' Man" is the fifth studio album by Leonard Cohen. Produced and co-written by Phil Spector, the voice of typically minimalist Cohen was surrounded by Spector's Wall of Sound, which included multiple tracks of instrument overdubs. Fifteen songs were written by the two over a course of three weeks, and Spector described it as "some great f-ckin' music".

"One-Trick Pony", Paul Simon's fifth album, was released in 1980. It was Paul's first album for Warner Bros Records. His back catalog from Columbia Records would also move to Warner Bros. as a result of his signing with the label. As a side note, the music careers of both Simon and Art Garfunkel were influenced by The Everly Brothers, one of the early members of the Warner Bros label roster.

Hearts and Bones is the sixth solo album by Paul Simon. It was released in 1983. The album was originally intended to be called Think Too Much, however Mo Ostin, president of Warner Bros Records, persuaded Simon to change it to Hearts and Bones. The album was written and recorded following the Simon and Garfunkel Concert in Central Park in 1981, and the world tour of 1982-1983. Some of the songs intended for Think Too Much were previewed on the tour, and Garfunkel worked on some of the songs with Simon in the studio, with an intention that the finished product would be a Simon and Garfunkel album. Ultimately, Garfunkel left the project early on, and none of his contributions were included in the final mix.

1997 saw Blur abandon English character song and look towards left-field American rock for inspiration. Recorded partly in Iceland, Britpop is shunned in favor of abstract experimentalism, abrasive guitars, held together with Damon Albarn’s instinctive knack for writing memorable tunes. The album features the band’s second UK number 1 single, “Beetlebum” and the casually anthemic "Song 2", the latter finally acquiring Blur transatlantic success.
