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.

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."

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.

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.

Most of Elisabetta Brusa’s compositions have been written for orchestral forces, with four volumes currently available on Naxos. The two new choral pieces in this fifth volume offer a revealing look at the composer’s response to spirituality and her own feelings about the end of life. The Stabat Mater was written as a trial for the Requiem and features vocal parts that are often pushed to the limit of their extensions for maximum expressivity. Following traditional models, Brusa’s Requiem evokes an archaic atmosphere which gives the piece a medieval aura, contrasted with moments of luminous and transcendent music.

Written for the Opéra in Paris, Gaetano Donizetti’s La Favorite contains some of his most famously enthralling arias. While its much-reduced Italian version has continued in popularity, this superb production from the Donizetti Opera Festival in his birthplace of Bergamo returns the work to its rarely heard 1840 French grand opera origins. Set in 14th-century Spain, the tragic story is of a pious novice (Fernand) who falls in love with a noble lady and abandons the cloister, meeting her in secret. He becomes a war hero and asks the King for her hand, later finding out to his horror that she is Léonor de Guzman, the King’s beloved mistress.

Instrument du jazz par excellence, le saxophone revient à ses sources avec cette luxuriante version de la Rhapsody in blue de Gershwin par deux musiciens formant un duo de choc très vivifiant, le saxophoniste Andreas Mader et le pianiste Joseph Moog. Ces deux là sont incomparables grâce à leur gourmandise sonore commune et à leur entente parfaite. Cette promenade avec le chien, celui du film Shall we Dance avec Fred Astaire et Ginger Rogers, nous emmène à travers de très habiles transcriptions d’œuvres de Lili Boulanger, Sergei Prokofiev (géniale suite d’après le ballet Roméo et Juliette), Ravel et Françaix. On y trouve aussi la rare et subtile Rhapsodie pour saxophone de Debussy et le fameux Scaramouche de Darius Milhaud dans la version pour saxophone alto prévue par le compositeur. Outre la composition originale de ce programme festif, on aime la sonorité sensuelle du saxophone soutenu par le piano imaginatif et presque orchestral de Joseph Moog. Le tout rendu par une prise de son d’une incroyable profondeur de timbres et de couleurs.

Tom Jones est l'un des chanteurs les plus populaires à avoir émergé de la British Invasion. Depuis le milieu des années 60, Jones a chanté presque toutes les formes de musique populaire – pop, rock, airs à succès, country, dance, et techno, il a tout fait. Son style actuel – baryton robuste à la voix profonde peu soucieux de la nuance et de la subtilité – a toujours été le même, seules les musiques d'accompagnement ont changé. Sur scène, Jones met à profit son sex appeal, dégageant une sexualité brute qui lui a valu l'adoration de nombreuses fans ferventes. Le nombre d'adeptes de Jones n'a pas diminué au cours des décennies, il a su exploiter les tendances, attirant de nouveaux fans tout retenant la base.

Marin Alsop Née à Manhattan à New York le 16 octobre 1956, enfant unique d’une mère violoncelliste et d’un père violoniste, la chef d'orchestre américaine Marin Alsop a très vite dessiné son avenir. C’est en effet à l’âge de neuf ans, en 1965, alors qu’elle est entrée un an auparavant au Conservatoire de Peabody à Baltimore, que Marin Alsop décide qu’elle sera chef d’orchestre, à l'issue d'un concert de Leonard Bernstein avec le Philharmonique de New York où son père et sa mère l’avaient emmenée.
