Fables of the Reconstruction was intentionally murky, and Lifes Rich Pageant was constructed as its polar opposite. Teaming with producer Don Gehman, who previously worked with John Mellencamp, R.E.M. developed their most forceful record to date. Where previous records kept the rhythm section in the background, Pageant emphasizes the beat, and the band turns in its hardest rockers to date, including the anthemic "Begin the Begin" and the punky "Just a Touch." But the cleaner production also benefits the ballads and the mid-tempo janglers, particularly since it helps reveal Michael Stipe's growing political obsessions, especially on the environmental anthems "Fall on Me" and "Cuyahoga." The group hasn't entirely left myths behind – witness the Civil War ballad "Swan Swan H" – but the band sound more contemporary both musically and lyrically than they did on either Fables or Murmur, which helps give the record an extra kick. And even with excellent songs like "I Believe," "Flowers of Guatemala," "These Days," and "What if We Give It Away," it's ironic that the most memorable moment comes from the garage rock obscurity "Superman," which is sung with glee by Mike Mills.

In March 2018, Escape Argot released the prominently cast Swiss trio to drummer Christoph Steiner (known from the band Hildegard learns to fly), his first joint album. Still Writing Letters enjoyed a very positive international response. The Confederation of Bern praised the "playful improvisational joke" of the "daring and enormously agile trio" and Bird Is The Worm was stunned to hear, "How suddenly they're ready to shift into the most delicate phrasing, making the transition seem as natural as thunder to lightning, pressure into peace. "Jazzzeitung. de: Due to their strong, homogeneous interaction, Escape Argot creates a very special sound, which unites musical opposites, grooving in a dreamlike way, determined by lyrical themes to soulful, unbridled improvisations.

Jazz, Vocal Jazz | Label: Louisiana Red Hot Records

Dr. John music director and bassist Roland Guerin is exploring a new musical chapter. Drawing from a wide spectrum of genres, Guerin's latest release Grass Roots displays a singular style driven by stories told through multi-layered melodies, rhythms and expressive lyrics in the range of Steely Dan, John Mayer, Sting and Peter Gabriel. Roland Guerin found his way back to his musical roots while recording and touring with the masterful Allen Toussaint from 2009 until his passing in 2015. Having collaborated with many legends from Marcus Roberts to the Blind Boys of Alabama, Roland's debut solo release was dubbed "a literal piece of art" by JazzReview. Now integrating Americana folk melodies, blues, zydeco, African rhythms, and rock with jazz soloing and orchestral arrangements, Grass Roots' tender eloquence reveals Guerin's formidable chops not just in his playing, but in his choices.

Refined album, expressive and dreamlike. Mixed jazz, hybrid listening to current sounds, eternal groove and suspended trances. "Jî Drû, a flutist of character, producer and arranger, a furious band leader for Push Up !, and Jî Mob, an inspired sideman, today signs a first album under his name, refined, expressive and dreamlike: WESTERN. Western is the breath, the breath. Western is a collective and individual epic, a fight against our own demons. Western evokes individual initiative, broken by the interest of a few. Western questions the intimate, which makes us hope, this momentum that transports us and makes us dream. Its decor is an empty space, full of movements of air and matter, reverberation, a place where the light rubs the heavy, the simple and the complex.

Classical | Label: Klarthe Records

For his first CD, the Lutetia orchestra has chosen to bring together two major figures of French and Argentine music. Two countries, two composers, two worlds directly linked to the influences that rocked his conductor Alejandro Sandler. The dream and the earth are the clever mix between Debussy's delicate sound palette and Ginastera's lyrical nervousness. The journey between two worlds linked to each other, which everything separates and brings together. Debussy's three selected works are both distinct and yet closely related. Symbolist and impressionist, Debussy was very early on rich and varied in his compositions from the first part of his creative life. The Estancia suite reveals in energetic and nostalgic terms the harsh life of the nomadic Gauchos in the wild plains of Argentina. Through a version that is intended to be descriptive and subjective, the Lutetia orchestra wanted to highlight what was the true life of an Argentine gaucho in the middle of the 19th century. They have kept the impressionist colours of the Argentine literary work that inspired the sequel: the "Martin Fierro".

Like most of Tinsley Ellis' albums, Georgia Blue is filled with hot, blistering guitar, mediocre songs and flat vocals. For fans of blues guitar, there's plenty to hear on the album - the licks and solos burn with a wild, uncontrolled fury. Others might find the album a little tedious, but not without virtue.

Set during the Second World War, this live recording of Ermione opened the Rossini Opera Festival in 2008. An exceptional vocal cast, in particular Sonia Ganassi in the title role, described by David Blewitt in The Stage as “deploy[ing] an astonishing vocal armoury to searing effect. Her fury during the Act I finale is hair-raising”. This production sees a collaboration between cousins Roberto and Daniele Abbado, nephew and son respectively of celebrated conductor Claudio Abbado.

Too much ink has been spilt on this Clemenza di Tito supposedly composed in 18 days and which, so it is said, was conspicuously out of step with the times in 1791 . . . The interpretation offered here by René Jacobs is nothing short of revolutionary. Not only does it rehabilitate the original score in its entirety, notably the recitatives: it also restores the powerfully classical inspiration so essential to opera seria. In the final years of the Enlightenment, this was still the favoured genre of the educated man, and it is sheer delight to hear the language of Metastasio beginning to sing once more. As if magic, La clemenza suddenly springs to new and exciting life.
