    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Neil Finn
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Lester Records (2014, Feb 11th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine Since 2001's One Nil -- which was later reworked into One All -- Neil Finn has recorded an album with his brother Tim, reunited Crowded House for two new albums, formed the collective 7 Worlds Collide, launched Pajama Club with his wife Sharon, and released a live record in tandem with Paul Kelly, but despite all this activity there is one thing he's avoided: releasing a collection of his original songs under his own name. Dizzy Heights rectifies that situation and not in a predictable fashion. Collaborating with Dave Fridmann, a producer who made his reputation through his work with neo-psychedelic bands Mercury Rev and the Flaming Lips, Finn luxuriates within ...

  • Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles

    Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Suzanne Vega
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Amanuensis Productions (2014, Feb 18th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Thom Jurek The four volumes in Suzanne Vega's Close-Up series revisited her catalog thematically with stripped-down charts. It appealed to her base of fans who patiently waited seven years for new material. The ten songs on Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles fits that bill. The set was produced by longtime associate and co-writer Gerry Leonard, and played by a weighty studio cast. The album isn't so much a change of musical direction as it is a classy revisioning of Vega's trademark sound. These tracks address many of humanity's big themes through Vega's canny, detailed gaze, sometimes with the added weight of the metaphorical wisdom from the tarot. "Crack in the Wall" is a...

    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Tantor Media; Unabridged,Unabridged CD edition (2014, Feb 26th).
    Pages:   

    One Way Out is the powerful biography of the Allman Brothers Band, an oral history written with the band's participation and filled with original, never-before-published interviews as well as personal letters and correspondence. This is the most in-depth look at a legendary American rock band that has meant so much to so many for so long. For twenty-five years, Alan Paul has covered the Allman Brothers Band, conducting hundreds of interviews, riding the buses with them, attending rehearsals and countless shows. He has interviewed every living band member for this book as well as managers, roadies, and contemporaries, including Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Jaimoe, Butch Trucks, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, the late Allen Woody, Jimmy Herring, Eric Clapton, Bob Weir, and many others. more

    Beauty and the Beast

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Alan Menken
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Walt Disney Records (2010, Sep 14th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Tavia Hobart This music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman are positively delightful. While not as good as the Little Mermaid score, this album has its moments, such as "Be Our Guest" (in an "A Chorus Line" style). Including both orchestral and vocal selections, it features the talents of Robby Benson, Paige O'Hara, and Angela Lansbury, among others. The album also includes "Beauty and the Beast" as a duet between Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson. [The soundtrack was also released with bonus tracks.] Read More Show Less ...

    Sex and Love

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Enrique Iglesias
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Universal Republic (2014, Mar 18th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Thom Jurek Though Enrique Iglesias spent four years between albums, one would hardly know it by Sex and Love. No less than four of these 11 tracks were issued as pre-release singles in 2013. Musically, Iglesias walks the line between the dancefloor jams of 2007's Insomniac and the romantic flavor of 2010's Euphoria. Interestingly, it's not the singles that are most convincing. "Bailando," with Descemer Bueno and Gente De Zona, is an uptempo groover that melds flamenco-tinged guitars and a cut-time dancefloor strut. The celebratory choruses are balanced by a tender, infectious pop melody and a tropical counter-rhythm. Single "El Perdedor," with Marc Antonio Solís, is an unmistakable ...

    Jenny Lin Plays Stravinsky Solo Piano Works

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Simone Dinnerstein
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Steinway & Sons (2014, Feb 25th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Blair Sanderson Igor Stravinsky's colorful ballets are his most popular works, followed by his concertos, symphonies, and choral compositions, but his pieces for solo piano have a small following, due as much to infrequent performances as to their modest size and narrow scope. Jenny Lin's 2014 album on Steinway & Sons addresses this lack of attention, and her attractive performances make a strong case for their inclusion on more recital programs. The "Piano Sonata" (1924), the "Etudes" (1908), and the "Serenade in A" (1925) are the most ambitious in their technical demands and musical development, while the remaining pieces, such as the composer's piano transcription of the ...
