This disc forms part of our ongoing Spanish Music series with the BBC Philharmonic under its Chief Conductor, Juanjo Mena. Here the focus is on the orchestral music of Joaquín Turina, one of the two leading Spanish composers of the twentieth century, the other being Manual de Falla. Turina was a prolific composer who in his sixty-seven years wrote more than 100 works across a wide range of classical genres. Turina lived in Paris from 1905 to 1914 whilst taking lessons from d’Indy and getting to know Ravel and Debussy. The Danzas fantásticas and Sinfonía sevillana are both influenced by the sights and sounds of Turina’s native Seville but also by aspects of French impressionism. Poema en forma de canciones is probably the best-known work, originally for voice and piano. The other works are Ritmos (Rhythms), originally a ballet score, brilliantly effective in the concert hall, and Saeta en forma de Salve a la Virgen de la Esperanza, a beautifully written devotional song. In this as well as in the Poema and in ‘Farruca’, from Triptico, the orchestra is joined by the Spanish mezzo Clara Mouriz.

Purists might tell you that the golden age of Bubblegum Pop occurred strictly between 1967 and 1972, but in reality its scope was far wider. Foreshadowed by the shimmering girl-pop of the early to mid 60s and followed by the novelty chart hits of the 70s and 80s, Bubblegum can be seen in almost all great pop music from the last 60 years. This 3CD set brings together many of its highlights, from The Archies Sugar Sugar to Bucks Fizz s Making Your Mind Up . You might call these hits disposable, but just try getting them out of your head!

#8 is a 1983 album by J. J. Cale. It was his eighth since his debut in 1972. Twelve years and eight albums into his recording career, Cale's approach has changed little, and here is another collection of groove tunes that act as platforms for the artist's intricate guitar playing. He is sometimes accompanied by a female vocalist, co-writer Christine Lakeland.

In this double CD, the third for Leo Records, the original process of instant composing conceived by Scoolptures is powered by graphic scores obtained from the works of the street artist Banksy. His intimate and sharp stencils, motions of a suffering humanity, are transformed into the sound matrices of these 24 compositions. Nicola Negrini (doublebass, ubass, metallophone and live electronics), Achille Succi (alto sax, bass clarinet and shakuhachi), Philippe "Pipon" Garcia (drums, prepared guitar and live electronics) and Antonio Della Marina (sinewaves and live electronics) mold the sound into a pulsating, urban, tense or ecstatic conglomerate, densely fluid and dynamic, which are a sound equivalent of Banksy's stencils.

For a few years in the early '80s, Willie Nile had "next big thing" written all over him; at a time when the music biz was moving from its search for the "new Dylan" to the "new Springsteen," Nile had the look and the smart wordplay of the former along with the rocker's instincts and blazing passion of the latter, and he seemed destined for the big time. Nile made three albums before (two for Arista, one for Columbia) before the major-league recording industry decided they didn't know what to do with him after all, which seems to have been a matter of poor marketing rather than the quality of his work. Nile's three major-label albums have all been out of print since the late '90s, but the British Acadia label has given them a new lease on life with The Arista Columbia Recordings 1980-1991, a two-CD set that features the 32 songs from 1980's Willie Nile, 1981's Golden Down, and 1991's Places I Have Never Been, all in their original sequence.

As he preps his fourth album, Eric Church pays tribute to the time-honored tradition of releasing a live album while the iron is hot. And so there's Caught in the Act: Live, a 17-track set recorded at the Tivoli Theatre in Chattanooga, Tennessee as he supported his career-making 2011 record Chief. In concert, Church is brawnier than he is in the studio – witness "Creepin," where such subtle production tricks as backward guitars are stripped away so it just barrels by on drums and guitars – but this isn't a bad thing, as macho swagger is integral to his appeal.

This 2013 collection from venerable, German metal outfit Accept, led by the inimitable Udo Dirkschneider begins, appropriately, with their biggest hit, 1984's "Balls to the Wall," a true heavy metal anthem. Despite having an impressive track record of material that extends well into the 21st century, the remaining tracks on Playlist: The Very Best of Accept are all culled from the group's golden age, with highlights coming from live staples like "Fast as a Shark," "London Leatherboys," "Metal Heart," and "Restless and Wild."

J.J. Cale drifts toward a more pop approach on this album, starting with the lead-off track, "City Girls," which could almost but not quite be a hit single. The usual blues and country shuffle approach is in effect, but Audie Ashworth's production is unusually sharp, the playing has more bite than usual, and Cale, whose vocals are for the most part up in the mix, sounds more engaged. It's not clear, however, that this is an improvement over his usual laidback approach, and, in any case, it shouldn't be over-emphasized – this is still a J.J. Cale album, with its cantering tempos and single-note guitar runs. It's just that, when you have a style as defined as Cale's, little movements in style loom larger.

Wayne has re-signed to Blue Note Records, and has released his first album as a leader for the iconic label in 43 years with the release of Without A Net, a searing new album with his long-running quartet featuring pianist Danilo Perez, bassist John Patitucci, and drummer Brian Blade.
Without A Net is a 9-track musical thrill ride that consists of live recordings from the Wayne Shorter Quartet’s European tour in late 2011, the one exception being the 23-minute tone poem “Pegasus” which features the quartet with The Imani Winds recorded at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. The album features six new Shorter compositions, as well as new versions of his tunes “Orbits” (from Miles Davis’ Miles Smiles album) and “Plaza Real” (from the Weather Report album Procession).
