These are among the most familiar pieces in the entire violin-and-orchestra repertory, and German violinist Arabella Steinbacher even admits in the notes that she had no particular desire to record them. What convinced her, she says, was the chance to work with conductor Charles Dutoit, here leading the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, and indeed the reading they produce is an unusually collaborative one. And, as it happens, that of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64, is a real winner.

Reissue with the latest DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. One of the more obscure albums by this great reedman – recorded live, and with a loose feel that really points towards his changes to come in the 70s! The album's got a lively vibe that's quite a change from some of Watanabe's albums from a few years before – longer tracks, lots of new ideas, and a style that's really stretching out – yet never too far outside too.

Later than Sadao Watanabe's classic period, but a great album with some really wonderful moments! The set was recorded live in Tokyo in 1975, and it features Watanabe working with a group that includes Isao Suzuki on bass, Yshiaki Masuo on guitar, and Takehiro Honda on piano. The four tracks are all long, with some of the searching Coltrane-ish playing that Watanabe brought to his earlier Sony albums, but they've also got a fair bit of the warmth he was reaching for during the 70s – combining elements of world jazz styles into a mode that really pushed his work on alto and flute. Titles include "Pamoja", "Vichakani", and "Musitoni".

"The Looking Glass Society" is a wecome 2015' return from Ashbury Heights. Anders and Tea have created an album that is every bit as good as AH's previous albums. It has somewhat of a less intense delivery, and is a little reseved on the electro sounds; there are no songs reminiscent of the likes of "World Coming Down", which is a shame, but the slight change in direction (began with the previous album, "Take Cair Paramour") doesn't lessen the enjoyment of TLGS one bit. There are a few reserved-tempo pieces here, like "Glow" and "Hollow", with their refined intros that give something of a Renaissance feel.

The fourth studio long player from the idiosyncratic English psych-rock/proto-metal unit, the Rise Above Records-issued Night Creeper was recorded at Toe Rag Studios in early 2015 with engineer Liam Watson (White Stripes, Tame Impala, Electric Wizard). Sabbathy, savage, and sordid, the ten-track set offers up a master class in doomy atmosphere and meaty hooks, with highlights arriving via viscera-exploding cuts like "Waiting for Blood," "Murder Nights," and "Slow Death."

Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. That's yellow dolphin street, not "Green Dolphin Street" – a very special place where Tete Montoliu unfurls a beautiful selection of solo piano numbers! Tete's really at the height of his powers here – and spins out wonderfully without any bass or drums, yet with all the complex, fluid feel that you might expect from a trio. The range of tonal colors is wonderful – and always delivered with a rhythmic impulse, even when Montoliu is flying free – on titles that include "Yellow Dolphin Street", "Napoleon", "Where Are You", "Waltz For Nicolien", and "I Hate You".

You won’t be seeing Mark Knopfler in melodramatic newspaper headlines or on talent show panels. The much-travelled craftsman prefers to reside wherever the song takes him, from writing room to rehearsal space, recording studio to concert hall. He is, as tirelessly and inquisitively as ever, on the trail of some musical truth, just as he has been since the 45s of Ricky Nelson and Lonnie Donegan, or the playing of Hank Marvin and Duane Eddy, sent him down a path that led to 125 million record sales. That approach to his life’s work is how the title of his new, eighth solo album (not counting a myriad of collaborations, productions and film soundtracks) came into being. It’s the other half, if you like, of his typically acclaimed double set ‘Privateering,’ which graced top tens throughout Europe and beyond in 2012…

Experience our music live for the first time! For the first time you can hear the band perform live. Recorded multitrack live and mixed professionally, it doesn't get better! Guitarist Stephane Wrembel reached some level of notoriety when he was the man behind Woody Allen’s Gypsy-jazz-inspired film Sweet and Lowdown. He has gone on to do a few more soundtracks for Allen, as well as others. It is easy to see why he makes such a good choice for matching music to movies. His compositions, though completely instrumental, tell vivid stories all on their own.

Blockbuster Chinese fantasy "event" movie gets massive, full-blooded Christopher Young action soundtrack. Donnie Yen, Chow Yun Fat, Aaron Kwok star, Poi Soi Cheang directs. Legendary literary masterpiece from Ming, Qing dynasties gets elaborate, effect-laden, big-budget film treatment. Sun Wukong, China's legendary "Monkey King", challenges the gods in dynamic fashion. Epic battles in Heaven, on Earth abound. Christopher Young fashions his most powerful, epic-scale work ever. Scored for large orchestra with augmented percussion plus choir, Young provides magnificent music full of rich melody, pulsating rhythmic drive and - in particular - incredible action sequences. Avoiding dissonance per se, Young hits the bullseye with lengthy, tonal harmonies, soaring themes even as his action material dominates. Action cues with emotion. Action cues with scope. Sensational, powerful music is the result!

Their music is characterized by its sophisticated symphonic arrangements as well as extensive psychedelic improvisations, thus rocking our everyday listening habits. Blank Manuskript creates music paired with mystical-vivid lyrics to transfer its audience into flamboyant musical spheres that have a unique effect on the listeners. Socio-critical escapism unites with creative excellence, creating contemporary programmatic rock music for insiders and seekers, far beyond the inhuman banality of the media machine.

Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. By this point in his career, Sanders had largely withdrawn from the kind of screeching avant-gardism on which he at first staked his reputation. The opening "Moon Child," with its attractively spacy vocals, is reminiscent of the days of "The Creator Has a Master Plan," but this version sounds too contrived to rival the classic earlier recording. The mood is subdued throughout and the choice of tunes definitely on the conservative side ("All or Nothing at All" and "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes," among the six tracks).

The debut album of Slovakian six-piece band SINNERS MOON, “Atlantis”, is a new rough gemstone of the Symphonic and Gothic Metal kind. From the first song on, “Inner Demons” you can hear SINNERS MOON has already manifested themselves as a solid Symphonic Metal band, and that they clearly have a lot more potential in their ranks…
