Brian Bennett, drummer of the Shadows; Brian Bennett: triple Ivor Novello Award winning film and TV score composer; Brian Bennett, member of the SODS (Society Of Distinguished Songwriters, and former “King Sod”) - writer of hits such as “Summer Holiday”, Brian Bennett whose barn burned down recently destroying his studio and irreplaceable collection of antique drum kits. He’s a busy man, Brian Bennett, and he’s had a long and interesting life so far. Once the young resident drummer at the famous “Two 1’s” coffee bar in Old Compton Street, his stellar career has now brought him to the point when his new instrumental album – a tribute to his friend and idol, John Barry – is being released on Dramatico Records. This is a powerful and impressive album, superbly produced and orchestrated – with the assistance of his son Warren Bennett.

The Invitations were a Honolulu pop vocal group from the 1950's featuring Sonny Kamaka, Alec Kaeck, Buddy Fo, Clem Low, and John Costello, who were about being true beach boys by singing songs about love and romance, along with the ladies they loved, all done in a Hawaiian motif. They started in the mid to late 1950's and were signed to Liberty Records. They continued after Hawaii statehood in 1959 and made music during the first half of the 1960's before Buddy Fo decided to explore his own musical career. R.S.V.P. was originally released by Liberty Records in 1959. This is taken from the Japanese CD released in 2006..

Paul Lay est un Marvel du piano. Un super héros des 88 touches, les pliant sous ses doigts à sa volonté. Il fait partie de cette génération mutante qui a grandi un pied dans le classique, un pied dans le jazz, et comprend la vérité inhérente à chacune de ces traditions. L’une, multi centenaire, s’attache depuis toujours à la clarté et l’intonation mélodiques, à la beauté des formes et des polyphonies, tandis que l’autre, toute jeune encore d’à peine un siècle, explore avec obstination toutes les possibilités rythmiques et harmoniques de l’improvisation. Rassemblez ces deux héritages, fondez-les dans le moule du Conservatoire Supérieur National de Musique, saupoudrez de génie, laissez durcir quelques années et vous avez Paul Lay, Marvel de piano. Inutile de dire qu’il n’est pas passé inaperçu : à 30 ans, il se voit décerné pour son deuxième disque le prix de l’Académie Charles Cros, deux ans plus tard c’est le prestigieux prix Django Reinhardt distinguant le meilleur musicien de l’année, puis en 2020 les Victoires du Jazz qui confirment ce verdict.

Among the many issues that still plague the United States is its seemingly unending betrayal of its Black population. Though the struggle against prejudice in the States continues, the complexion of its fighters continues to change, as broader swathes of the American public begin to pick up the mantle of racial justice and equality for all.The voices of African American militants continue to ring in the vanguard’s ears. One such musical example is the late, great bassist/composer Charles Mingus, whose music was vehemently charged with indignation concerning the rights of the downtrodden. His messages, both outright and nuanced, are touchstones for many musicians who choose to address these issues, including singer-songwriter/pianist Stephanie Nilles, who interprets Mingus’s canon on her new recording, I pledge allegiance to the flag – the white flag.

1991 was a momentous year for The Brand New Heavies. They started it without a singer second on the bill to The James Taylor Quartet and by the end they were had a Top 3 US hit and were about to embark on a run of 16 Top 40 hits in the UK. N'Dea Davenport was by this point fronting the group as their guest singer, and the brilliant string of singles from their debut album were becoming locked in the minds of an ever growing fan base. Live they were a revelation. The only group from the UK scene who could do tight and slick, without slipping into 'lift music' blandness. The core membership of Andrew Levy, Simon Bartholomew and Jan Kincaid had been playing together since college and knew where the other was going. Their ability to write classic soul songs lifted them above their contemporaries. Shibuya 357 is the quintessential (and only live) document of an era that quickly passed.

Two classic easy-listening albums by Paul Mauriat and His Orchestra, originally released in 1970 and 1971 on the Philips label, together on one CD and remastered from the original analogue stereo tapes for Vocalion's trademark crystal-clear sound.

His first major success came in 1962, as a co-writer of the European hit "Chariot." In 1963, the song was given English lyrics, renamed "I Will Follow Him," and became a number one American hit for Little Peggy March. Mauriat is best remembered for his 1968 worldwide smash "Love Is Blue."

Marilyn Monroe was not much of a recording artist per se, but she sang in many of her motion pictures. This European two-CD set presents dialogue and musical performances drawn directly from the soundtracks to the movie musicals Ladies of the Chorus, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The River of No Return, and There's No Business Like Show Business. She also sings briefly in non-musicals Niagra, Bus Stop, and The Prince and the Showgirl, plays "Chopsticks" in The Seven Year Itch, and exchanges witticisms with Groucho Marx in Love Happy; and there are a few stray non-movie song recordings. The second half of the second disc is taken up by miscellaneous recordings, not all of them musical, including a TV commercial, the presentation of several awards (she says, "Thank you"), radio sketches with Edgar Bergen and Jack Benny, and Monroe's appearances in Korea (singing "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend") and at the 1962 birthday party for President Kennedy at which she sang "Happy Birthday".

Dean Martin finally got access to conductor/arranger Nelson Riddle for an album project, and the result was an easy swinging collection with appealing horn charts and a series of comfortable readings of recent and vintage standards. Especially notable were the two songs borrowed from My Fair Lady, "On the Street Where You Live" and "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face," which Martin and Riddle re-imagined as straight-forward love songs; "You're Nobody 'til Somebody Loves You" (which Martin would try again in a more contemporary arrangement four years later for one of his biggest hits); and a solo version of "Just in Time," which the singer had recently done with Judy Holliday in the film version of the musical Bells Are Ringing. This Time I'm Swingin'! was a good, confident set by an artist who had figured out how to make competent albums without expending a lot of effort, which was a key to his charm.

Born Marion Susan Maughan but dropping her first name, Susan's big hit was a cover of Bobby's girl. Originally an American hit for Marcie Blane, Susan took the song to the top three in the British charts. Neither singer had much success after that although as I explained in a review of a Marcie Blane compilation, Marcie really wasn't interested in a recording career, or indeed a singing career of any kind, and contented herself with a normal life away from the spotlight. As a contrast, Susan has built a singing career on the strength of Bobby's girl, performing on cruise liners, at seaside resorts and elsewhere on the cabaret circuit.

"A pianist with fire in her fingers," wrote one of Spain's largest newspapers, La Vanguardia."She is talented and has a deep artistic temperament, as well as the ability to interpret works of various styles and authors," the legendary pianist Lazar Berman said of his student."A delicate sensibility and great abilities as an interpreter" — this is how the outstanding Spanish pianist Alicia de Larocha described her student.

By the first two "The Future Is My Melody" compilations, the german based Elektrolux label, home of well-known and benchmarking compilation series like Space Night or Flowmotion, already proved that Ambient and Pop may be complementary in a most sensual way. Finally, the fascination of the human voice is essential in electronic music as well. Therefore, the third volume of "Future Is My Melody" illustrates the modernity and internationality of a pop understanding which could not be further apart from casting shows and one-hit-wonder-phenomena. The likewise Mediterranean und erotic track “Luces” by Ibiza-based Marko Bussian, Jean-Charles Vandermynsbrugge and Argentina-born Sol Ruiz de Galarreta aka Fous de la Mer is an optimum starter track for the compilation…

“Bennett’s ability to straddle jazz and popular music was one he shared with few others. He managed to retain more of a jazz feel than either, and that’sN what Basie senses in him: a kindred spirit who is devoted to the not so very taxing business of s(w)inging the song with minimum distraction.”
