While we associate Tchaikovsky with music of virtuoso power and difficulty, sweeping up audiences with the fire of the Violin Concerto and First Piano Concerto, he also applied himself to music for the ever-growing market of amateur music-makers during his lifetime. Like many other great composers, he knew how to write for musicians of moderate ability without compromising or simplifying the individuality of his voice as a composer.

Alexis Ffrench isn’t afraid of fusing his music with weighty issues. For years, the pioneering pianist has used his music to highlight mental health, discuss diversity and challenge the classical world to be more inclusive. Truth, his latest album, is his most powerful and political to date, and also his most optimistic. “I imagined what the world would look like if everybody had the opportunity to ask themselves the questions ‘who am I?’ and ‘what is my purpose in the world?’ and what we, as a human race, could create and change together.” Featuring Alexis’ signature piano and orchestra sound, alongside rare collaborations including the searingly soulful One Look with his friend Leona Lewis, Truth captures Alexis’ hopes for the future and his belief that change is already upon us.

Bruce Springsteen Comme Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Neil Young et quelques autres, Bruce Springsteen dépasse les frontières du genre musical dans lequel on tenterait de l’encager. Au fil de ses albums, le kid du New Jersey est devenu un symbole, tant musical qu’idéologique. Marchant sur les traces de son idole Dylan, le Boss s’est lancé dans des instantanés souvent poignants de cette bannière étoilé froissée, de l’american dream souvent maltraité, bref la chronique d’une Amérique de la marge, dont il reste l’un des plus étincelants ambassadeurs… Rares sont les musiciens ayant une aura aussi développée auprès de leur public que lui. Depuis le début de sa carrière au milieu des années 70, il n’a eu de cesse de tourner, de remplir inlassablement les stades et les plus grandes salles du monde. La soixantaine bien entamée, le Boss met toujours autant d’âme dans ses concerts et sur disque, ce qui explique l’intérêt constant que lui portent ses nombreux fans.

Genre: Psychedelic Rock

This odds and sods collection of the Jefferson Airplane gives an eclectic overview of one of the premier San Francisco bands. Although several of their better-known songs are included ("White Rabbit," "Volunteers"), the purpose of Flight Log seems to be to tell the story of the original JA lineup rather than present their greatest hits. The first half of the record documents the group together, the second half the group apart. A live version of "Somebody to Love" rides the sonic punch of Kaukonen and Cassady; Marty Balin's "Comin' Back to Me" remains one of the Airplane's finest ballads. The initial Hot Tuna recordings are also represented here along with tracks from the Blows Against the Empire assemblage. The inclusion of Jefferson Starship's "Ride the Tiger points the way to a slicker, pop-oriented future. While Flight Log is not essential, it may certainly be of interest to devout fans of the Jefferson Airplane.

Genre: Psychedelic Rock, Acid Rock, Proto-Prog

This compilation chronicles the history of Jefferson Airplane/Starship as seen on the VH1 Behind the Music series. This is the first CD to encapsulate the band as it morphed between its three phases with the only consistency being the vocals of Grace Slick. These 18 tracks start with 1967's summer of love anthems "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit," then move into the decadent '70s haze of "Miracles" and "With Your Love," and conclude with the '80s glossy pop/ballads "We Built This City," "Sara," and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now." Fans of one particular incarnation of the band may find parts of this nauseating or outdated, depending on where they stand. For better or worse, the band constantly evolved throughout three decades, unlike other mega superstar groups that gained prominence at the same time.

On August 13, 1965, Jefferson Airplane made their debut at the Matrix in San Francisco, and the club, founded by Airplane singer Marty Balin, was also having its opening that night. Two and a half years later, on February 1, 1968, Jefferson Airplane returned to the Matrix to play a show. By then, the group (three of whose six members had been replaced along the way) was a national success with a gold second album, Surrealistic Pillow, and two Top Ten singles, "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit."

This was the first serious effort to assemble the best and most interesting of the Jefferson Airplane's work from beginning to end. At the time, the group's catalog on CD was in a woeful state of disrepair, hastily mastered from LP production sources and sounding worse than original vinyl copies of many of the titles, and there was no comprehensive anthology,

Besides recording several respected EPs for Chain Reaction under the confusingly titled production concern known as Various Artists, Berlin's Torsten Pröfrock co-owns (with Sasha Brauer) Din Records, home to releases by excellent, respected producers Monolake, Pole, and Arovane. Pröfrock entered the Berlin electronics scene first by shopping at the Berlin record store Hard Wax while working toward his economics degree. By 1994, he worked at Hard Wax as well, growing closer to the store's base for legendary productions on the Basic Channel/Chain Reaction family of labels. Pröfrock also began producing and released his first Various Artists project, 1995's 1-7, on Chain Reaction. (He also recorded two singles for the label as Resilient and Erosion.) The continuation piece 8, 8.5, 9 appeared on England's Fat Cat label in 1997, highlighting the producer's subtle ambient sense and reliance on a restrictive frequency range – all middles, no highs or lows. Later that year, Chain Reaction compiled his work on the Decay Product compilation, and Fat Cat expanded 8, 8.5, 9 to an EP for Profrock's second CD release. ~ John Bush

If the recognition of one's peers is the true measure of success, then few men are as successful as composer, arranger, and conductor Henry Mancini. In a career that spanned 40 years, writing for film and television, Mancini won four Oscars and twenty Grammys, the all-time record for a pop artist. For 1961's Breakfast at Tiffany's alone, Mancini won five Grammys and two Oscars. Breakfast at Tiffany's includes the classic "Moon River" (lyrics by Johnny Mercer), arguably one of the finest pop songs of the last 50 years.

Quand la voix et la guitare visitent la musique latine du XXème ! Un Romancero est un recueil de poèmes et de romances où de petits récits façonnent une grande histoire. Des récits de femmes et d’hommes, qui, au travers des méandres de la vie, font l’expérience de l’amour et de ses tourments. Ici les cycles de mélodies s'entremêlent pour dessiner une mosaïque musicale qui regroupe les œuvres en quatre chapitres : la passion, la trahison, le réconfort et la perte. A la manière d’un conte, Romancero est une invitation à explorer en musique les secrets de ces sentiments. Le corpus d'œuvres comprend une grande majorité d'arrangements inédits ainsi que des œuvres originales où se côtoient des compositeurs qui ont marqué la musique hispanophone du vingtième siècle, tissant du romantisme de l’espagnol Isaac Albeniz à la modernité du cubain Léo Brouwer le fil d’une poésie amoureuse.

Carmen McRae always had a nice voice (if not on the impossible level of an Ella Fitzgerald or Sarah Vaughan) but it was her behind-the-beat phrasing and ironic interpretations of lyrics that made her most memorable. She studied piano early on and had her first important job singing with Benny Carter's big band (1944), but it would be another decade before her career had really gained much momentum.

With classics such as "The Great Pretender," "Only You," and their rendition of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," the Platters were one of the preeminent doo wop groups of the rock & roll era. Under the guidance of manager and producer Buck Ram, the Platters churned out hit after hit during the 1950s, bridging the gap between more traditional vocal-group stylings and the popular R&B grooves of the early '50s. Their sound was unique, marked by lead singer Tony Williams' powerful vocals and the feminine touch of singer Zola Taylor. Although competing versions of the Platters confused the public for many years, original founding member Herb Reed eventually solidified his rights to the name and the group continued recording and performing into the 2010s.

Jake Owen is one of the stalwart figures of bro-county, the cheerful good-time music that dominated mainstream country radio during much of the 2010s. Owen emerged before this phenomenon, having his first success in the latter half of the 2000s with such straight-ahead contemporary country songs as "Yee Haw" and "Don't Think I Can't Love You." Owen found his groove in 2011 with Barefoot Blue Jean Night, an album where he brightened his sound, accentuated melody, and ramped up his rhythms, a shift in style and attitude that gave him four successive number one Billboard Country Airplay hits: "Barefoot Blue Jean Night, "Alone with You," "The One That Got Away," and "Anywhere with You." The top of the charts became familiar territory for Owen, a place he remained even after the bro-country era faded, racking up three Billboard Country Airplay number ones at the end of the 2010s with "I Was Jack (You Were Diane)," "Homemade," and "Made for You." Owen's success carried into the next decade with 2021's "Best Thing Since Backroads" and 2022's "Up There Down Here," which he followed with the 2023 album Loose Cannon.
