Photogenic session vocalist Karyn White scored a hit in 1987 by lending her vocals to the Jeff Lorber track "Facts of Love." Not long after, her self-titled solo debut propelled her to pop stardom, and was one of the first albums to solidify Babyface and L.A. Reid as top-notch songwriters. The album was lush, state-of-the-art pop R&B at its finest, and scored no less than three pop Top Ten hits for the burgeoning songbird. "The Way You Love Me" and "Secret Rendezvous," which were also big dance hits, were groove-heavy, melodic, and sophisticated, and their success was no doubt aided by White's striking good looks. However, the song that White will probably be best remembered for is the anthemic ballad "Superwoman," a song that touched a chord with working women everywhere, and, likes its predecessors, shot to the pop Top Ten and the top of the R&B charts.

The first album from Dust is interesting on many levels. The rhythm section featured drummer Marc Bell, who would later join New York punk rockers Richard Hell & the Voidoids, while bassist Kenny Aaronson would sign on with labelmate Stories on the group's third album, as Ian Lloyd moved from bass/vocals to complete frontman. The songwriting team of producer Kenny Kerner and singer/guitarist Richie Wise would go on to produce the third Stories album, making this Dust debut and its follow-up an important piece of the Stories puzzle. Wise's lead vocals on Dust were decent enough to complement his very competent guitar playing; Wise would eventually get hired as A&R man at Scotti Brothers Records…

Hard Rock | Ward Records #GQCS-90486

The sixth go-around for the Norwegian hard rockers and Twin Peaks devotees, Blackout delivers another solid set of neo-classic rock confections that borrow happily from stalwart radio heavies like Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple, and Van Halen. More NWOBHM than hair metal, the 12-track set takes itself just seriously enough to connect, but never tries to pretend to be anything other than a love letter to the 1970s, which it manages to do with significant aplomb, despite the fact that the band has connections to a host of extreme metal outfits, including Enslaved and Gorgoroth. Iron Maiden are evoked right out of the gate on the explosive "This Is War," a nearly six-and-a-half-minute romp through guitarmony-leaden killing fields that sounds like a lost cut from the Piece of Mind sessions.

Dayna Stephens is a contemporary jazz tenor saxophonist whose sound is roundly hailed as warm, effusive, and sophisticated, much like his admitted influences Joe Henderson and Wayne Shorter. As a performer in the neo-bop post-Michael Brecker tradition, he'll also be compared in blindfold tests alongside Joe Lovano, Bob Mintzer, Chris Potter, and Seamus Blake. Nonetheless, Stephens has come out of the gate with a collection of original modern mainstream compositions backed by some established heavyweights of American music to support him. "Contagious" is the best track on the date to feature the young and brilliant pianist Taylor Eigsti, a chip off the ol' Chick Corea block…

This album gives one an interesting look at the early Keith Jarrett, who was already performing on an album of the Charles Lloyd Quartet and Miles Davis' early fusion band. He had not yet fully developed his style, but he was clearly on his way. These trio performances (with bassist Charlie Haden and drummer Paul Motian) are impressive for the period, but the best was yet to come.

The Swedish duo with friends releases their 7th studio album both energized and inspired by making their last release and in a much shorter time than usual. The recordings started the very same day as the release Party for ''Emerger.'' After the long hiatus after Nymf there was momentum enough for more than one release with a band now perfectly calibrated and compositions given time to grow. Here you get the distinctly familiar Carptree sound and something completely new. As always NFO (No Future Orchestra) is present with the same personel as last time. With a distinct focus on analogue instruments and amplifiers and finally an analogue master the result is a warm, organic and highly diversified album with a detailed texture. The album is called ''Subimago,'' hinting development and transformation and the album is a hybrid in simplicity and complexity in both music and lyrics.

Jazz, Vocal Jazz | Label: Chaos

As empathic as strong-voiced she gives this catchy song that connects several generations a musically new, brilliant robe. With the vocal sequences sung by her in Finnish, she sets a statement to her Finnish origin – a wonderful variety of the classic scat singing. And totally Tuija Komi. This Independence, this personal characteristic style – both vocally and musically and in the arrangements of the songs – is what gives the album his own special shining. Bravely she puts classics of the pop such as Thank You For The Music (ABBA), You Make Me Feel Brand-new (Simply Red) or It's Too Late (Carole King) next to a Feeling Good which Nina Simone already intoned impressively in 1965. She makes use of the finish pop literature (Suru on kunniavieras) like the beautiful melancholic ballad Gabriella’s Song from the movie „Wie im Himmel“ of the Sweden Stefan Nilsson and tailors an exact text gown for the latin-composition Samba Tzigane from the world-class trumpet player Dusko Goykovich.

Richter brings a solid, disciplined richness to Handel. The big choruses are supported by the organ, and the harpsichord is exuberantly present just about everywhere. The Munich Bach Choir sometimes sings with a German accent but doesn't muff an eighth note. The soloists are all native English speakers, and paramount among them is Alexander Young, the best Handel tenor of his time. He combines agility with persuasive heroic strength, and he is a superb actor. His unparalleled flamboyance of declamation brings every word to life (listen to the confrontation with Dalila); you remember both the character and the music. Arroyo sounds both voluptuous and repentant as Dalila, Procter is a composed, stately Micah with an absolutely steady contralto, and Flagello thunders imposingly as Harapha. Stewart's handsome baritone limns a suave, solicitous Manoa.

Transcendence as a trance, because in all black music trance is an underlying element. Transcendence as dance because the rhythm and the groove are at the base of all the music of the musician of Congolese origin. And finally, transcendence as surpassing: cleavages, its own limits, its fears and its comfort zone. For this project Ray Lema has brought together a sextet composed of Michel Alibo on bass and Nicolas Viccaro on drums for rhythm, the young Brazilian guitarist Rodrigo Viana who has accompanied him for ten years and two brass Irving Acao tenor sax and Sylvain Gontard on the trumpet. The nine unreleased tracks of Transcendence have returned to us by ear and have never come out.

Constance Demby is one of the few representatives of the New Age movement (in both her music and her personal philosophies) who consistently creates artistic, highly expressive compositions. Demby was trained in classical music as a child, and her artistic spirit led her to also master several other art forms; at the University of Michigan, she studied painting, sculpture, and music. It was her work as a sculptor that led her to new dimensions of sound. As she was torching a sheet of metal, it roared thunderously, and thus was born the Sonic Steel Instruments: the Whale Sail, and the Space Bass, enormous bowed instruments with deep archetypal resonances.

Score | Label: The Null Corporation

In the mid Nineties, Trent Reznor was rock’s preeminent enfant terrible – a figure in black (with black fingernails) who covered himself in mud, sang “I wanna fuck you like an animal” and midwifed Marilyn Manson into the world. A quarter of a century later, he’s an Oscar-winning film composer and a dad (and he’s still a threatening, vibrant force of nature when he gets onstage). The score he composed for Jonah Hill’s Mid90s movie with fellow Nine Inch Nail Atticus Ross couldn’t be farther aesthetically from Nine Inch Nails in mid Nineties. Its four short and surprisingly sweet moodpieces are marked by idyllic piano playing, Eno-esque ambiance and tremulant, fluttering sound effects. Its closest mid-Nineties touchpoint might be the new agey CDs you could buy at the end of the aisle at Target at the time, though it’s much more enjoyable because, as a Trent Reznor production, it overflows with melancholy. And in some ways, it’s not too far removed from the piano interludes he included on The Downward Spiral – there are just more major chords.

This vocal quartet originally started life as an extension of jazz band the Hi-Lo’s. From that prominent '50s band came Don Shelton, who decided to form Singers Unlimited after the Hi-Lo’s broke up in 1964. After retreating to Chicago, Illinois, where he worked on a series of television commercials, he enlisted fellow Hi-Lo’s veteran Gene Puerling of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to join him in the city in 1967. The group was formed along with Len Dresslar and Bonnie Herman, with the express intention of recording commercials in the doo wop/vocal group idiom. Shelton’s connections in the industry ensured the group was able to exploit the market successfully, and lucrative work rolled in. However, the 30-second snatches of songs hardly satisfied their artistic ambitions, and when they found themselves with studio time left over after one session, they recorded a take on the Beatles' "The Fool on the Hill." Through visiting jazz pianist Oscar Peterson, the demo of the a cappella recording was passed to MPS Records in Germany.
