    In Paris: The ORTF Recordings

    Limited Edition 180 Gram Vinyl Pressing Of 2,000


    Gatefold LP Includes Booklet With Essays, Unpublished Photos, Collector Postcards


    Mastered By The Legendary Engineer Bernie Grundman


    Resonance Records, in partnership with the National Audiovisual Institute (INA) of France, is pleased to announce the release of Larry Young In Paris/The ORTF Recordings. Presenting groundbreaking performances by jazz organist and pianist, Larry Young, these studio and live recordings from 1964 and 1965 made for French Radio and never before issued on record will be released in a limited edition 2-LP set.


    Producer Zev Feldman notes, It's particularly exciting because none of this music has ever been heard before except on its initial broadcast in France five decades ago. I think that's something to celebrate and a call for us all - as we often do with the archival recordings we at Resonance Records uncover - to revisit and discuss this legendary artist's legacy.


    Musicians featured on these recordings include trumpet legend Woody Shaw, tenor saxophonist and bandleader Nathan Davis and drummer Billy Brooks. An international cast of supporting players: French pianist Jack DiÉval tenor saxophonist Jean-Claude Fohrenbach and bassist Jacques B. Hess; Italian drummer Franco Manzecchi, Jamaican trumpet player Sonny Grey and Guadaloupean percussionist Jacky Bamboo round out the personnel. This album marks the first new release of Larry Young music in thirty-eight years.


    This project came about in 2012 when Resonance Records producer Zev Feldman traveled to France to explore the ORTF (Office of French Radio and Television) archives (the media vaults overseen by the French National Audiovisual Institute (INA) in the hope of finding undiscovered treasures, which he suspected he might find there. Feldman asked INA executives about specific artists and was stunned to learn that the vaults contained recordings documenting some of the greatest American jazz musicians who lived in - or visited - Paris in the 1960's, including Larry Young. Resonance Records presents in this album tapes that had been sitting idly in the vaults for nearly 50 years, scrupulously maintained by INA. Resonance will also be releasing other future projects from the INA vaults. More details to come soon. Producer Feldman states, It's been a thrill of the lifetime working with Christiane Lemire, Laure Audinot and Pascal Rozat at INA France to find this great music and shepherd this release. No question about it, this project represents jazz through diplomacy and the greater good of a mission. These recordings showcase American artists who found their home and voice in Europe at a time when the American landscape wasn't always as supportive. Feldman continues, When we started to explore the vaults of ORTF and search for recordings to release, we had a wish list of various artists we were on the hunt for, but Larry was the one artist whom I personally felt we needed to look extra hard for. I couldn't be more thrilled with what we found and which we are now releasing. I hope we'll all revisit this genius's legacy and appreciate why he mattered so much.


    While in France, Larry Young recorded at the ORTF Studios in Paris (now Maison de Radio France) as a sideman with the Nathan Davis Quartet, the Jazz aux Champs-ÉlysÉes All-Stars and with his own piano trio which included bassist Jacques B. Hess drummer and Franco Manzecchi. Larry Young In Paris/The ORTF Recordings includes selections from the original tapes, which were recorded specifically to be broadcast on French Radio. As noted, the only time these recordings have been shared with the public were on their original broadcasts on two iconic monthly French radio programs: Musique aux Champs-ÉlysÉes, hosted by French musician and producer Jack DiÉval; and Jazz sur scène, hosted by producer and jazz scholar AndrÉ Francis. Shortly after these recordings were made, Larry Young returned to New York to record the classic album Unity, his second album for Blue Note.


    Larry Young died at the tragically young age of 38 in 1978. Larry Young In Paris: The ORTF Recordings is a tribute to his memory and endorsed by the estate of Larry Young. Produced by Zev Feldman with Executive Producers George Klabin and Michael Cuscuna. Sound Restoration by Fran Gala and George Klabin. Mastering by Fran Gala at Resonance Records Studios.

    Resonance Live In Basel Switzerland Volume 1


    Limited Edition Double 140-Gram Red Vinyl Pressing Of 2010 Live Album


    Volume 1 of 2. Recorded live in Basel, Switzerland on May 4, 2010, Resonance features the original line-up of the legendary prog rock supergroup Asia in concert during their Omega tour. This is an older but no less adept Asia -- grounded by vocalist/bassist John Wetton's still powerful vocal chops -- performing a cross-section of their ambitious songs that mix a hard rock intensity and classical virtuosity with a catchy, melodic songcraft. The band's 2010 studio album, Omega, was the second to feature the original line-up of Wetton, guitarist Steve Howe, keyboardist Geoff Downes, and drummer Carl Palmer since the group shifted personnel in 1983. As such, Resonance features a mix of newer songs off Omega, as well as the band's previous 2008 reunion album, Phoenix.

    KAB Super Record Grip - Push On Record Clamp (On Sale)

    The newly redesigned KAB super record grip was designed to replace and improve upon the PIG clamp originally supplied with the Revolver brand turntables. This new design features a 2 piece precision molded frame, spring rubber insert and UHMW polyethylene non marring contact surface. This is especially useful on Rega brand turntables and others where there is very little spindle to grab on to.


    The KAB Super Record Grip reduces resonance and acoustic vibration of the record itself, freeing the stylus to do its intended job of tracing the groove. The result is better focus and detail to the soundstage.


    The Super record grip attaches quickly; by turning with slight pressure, it walks down the spindle and meets the record surface.


    Note: For easier use, the center hole can be lubricated with a diluted solution of 5% Armor All® and alcohol, swabbed with Qtip®.


    The built-in bubble level shows turntable level at a glance to within 1 degree of accuracy.


    Spring reinforced rubber insert holds onto the turntable spindle firmly.


    The built in bubble level allows a quick check of turntable level. A level turntable balances the forces of the needle in the groove.


    When the needle is resting in the record groove, the entire record surface behaves as a microphone picking up vibrations from the air and the turntable below. Damping the record surface reduces the affect of these added vibrations to the needle's already difficult job of reading the groove.


    The really great features to take note of with the KAB super record grip is the ease of use and cost effectiveness.


    The super record grip represents great value. Yet it is quite good at what it does and even has the added benefit of showing level at a glance, each time you use it. Keeping with the KAB philosophy that more is better, but it needn't cost more!


    One issue to be sensitive to is turntables with light floating spring suspensions. You will have to push down some while applying the super record grip. It does not rely on weight. (It only weighs 2 Oz) Be sure your turntable can Bottom Out safely. If this is a concern, consult your turntable maker first.


    [In our opinion, if you can bottom out safely, the super grip is a better solution still over clamps that rely on weight, since they will change the operating height of your platter.]

    Lost Recordings And Beat Rarities

    7 Vinyl Box Set w/ 20 Lost Tracks & Hard-To-Find Gems!


    This highly resonant set acts as a guidebook to many of the missing links behind the one British beat group who, more than any other, stayed neck-and-neck with the Beatles throughout the 60s. In terms of quality single releases with irresistible chart appeal (15 Top Ten 45s in the U.K.) and pure musical evolution, there is no doubt the Hollies breathed the same rarefied air as the Fab Four.


    The Hollies Lost Recordings and Beat Rarities collects 20 long-buried tracks and hard-to-find gems, ranging from rare U.S. and British singles to EP rarities and unissued songs, all perfectly ripe for release as an original Hollies 45, whether that happened or not. Follow the group from their first single (released in May of 1963), the savage Aint That Just Like Me b/w Hey Whats Wrong With Me, through their discotheque dance floor raves: Come On Back, What Kind of Love and She Said Yeah. Swoon to their swingin ballad Yes I Will, groove with their jazzy Honey and Wine and float to outer space with All The World is Love. Discover an impossible-to-find, spy-style double-sider the Hollies did for a 1967 Italian movie, and groove to unreleased tracks cut while on tour in New York City in 1965, then marvel at an extremely scarce cover of the Beatles If I Needed Someone, tracked at Abbey Road, revered recording home to both groups.


    Sundazed has collected a pirates ransom of tracks here, nearly all unavailable on any original English or American Hollies album. Delivered now via the supremely cool format of 45RPM vinyl, each single is loaded with guaranteed disk jockey dance-floor magic that only further cements the Hollies reputation as the coolest Manchester band, ever!

    Outstanding performance from a compact and luxurious turntable configuration


    The 2Xperience SB is based on the 2Xperience belt-drive concept which incorporates over 20 years of turntable design experience. The addition of a precision motor controller with electronic speed change, derived from the highly regarded Speed Box yields precise speed accuracy and push button convenience. The superb 9cc Evolution carbon fiber tonearm provides superb performance especially with the factory mounted Sumiko Blue Point No. 2 cartridge, while serving as a solid foundation for future upgrades. The heavy chassis is made from MDF using a non-resonant construction technique.


    The mat is created from a recycled vinyl record bonded to the platter and precision machined to create an ideal turntable/record interface. A custom light-weight record clamp reduces unwanted record vibration and ensures a tight coupling of the record to the platter. The audio performance of the final product benefits from the resonance-free platter, avoiding the ringing effect of common metal and glass platters. Available in a variety of beautiful finishes, the 2Xperience SB looks as good as it sounds and with the highly regarded Blue Point No. 2 included, represents a superb value.

    Paradise

    Recorded at Black Keys guitarist/vocalist Dan Auerbach's East Eye Sound Studios in Nashville, Paradise, the Wood Brothers' Honey Jar Records-issued fifth studio long-player and follow-up to 2013's The Muse, is their first outing to be written by all three members of the trio, Oliver Wood, Chris Wood, and Jano Rix. It's also the first set of recordings from the group to feature bassist Chris Wood swapping out his upright for an electric four-string, but plugging in has done little to dampen the trio's penchant for crafting experimental yet always emotionally resonant slabs of funk-tinged folk and jazz-inflected Americana blues.

    How We Lost

    How We Lost is actually a celebratory album. It's a reflective record and, in its own way, celebrates the Windsor For The Derby continuum that's been culled from their first release, Calm Hades Float in 1996 to their last, Giving Up the Ghost from 2005. Each of these recordings is a sequel to the next both musically and in narrative, especially since the band found themselves in constant dialogue about their body of work and the paths they'
    d chosen due to the rerelease of their first two records Calm Hades Float and Minnie Greutzfeldt. Also a part of that ongoing dialogue were the records that the band found itself consistently re-visiting, Swell Maps, Section 25, Psychic TV and what it was that made those recordings timeless and resonate in a personal way to the band. The songs on How We Lost is about the ways they've changed over the years, the things they hold onto and what's been left behind.

For this new album, recorded in Los Angeles and Stockholm, she worked closely with producer Ariel Rechtshaid (Foreign Born, We Are Scientists) and Fever Rays Van Rivers and Subliminal Kid. Ring displays a newly rich vision of her post-pop sound. Laced with strings, woodwinds and simple, angelic vocal melodies, Ring has the universal lure of a lullaby and a hymn.

    Smart Flesh

    Includes CD


    With its dreamy, rustic take on the idea of Americana, the Low Anthem's Smart Flesh builds on the promise of the group's universally praised 2008 Nonesuch Records debut, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin. As the Washington Post has put it, The Low Anthem isn't the first bunch of indie rockers to experiment with older string-band instruments and echoes of the songs of pre-1940 rural America. But no one has done it better than this Rhode Island trio... That's because very few bands have paid so much attention to detail, or to beauty.


    To record Charlie Darwin, the three original band members-Jocie Adams, Ben Knox Miller, and Jeff Prystowskytook over a Block Island cabin in the dead of winter. To record Smart Flesh, the group now expanded to a quartet with the addition of drummer Mat Davidson-found a former pasta factory in Central Falls, Rhode Island, a cavernous loft space that became crucial to the shape of the album. Says vocalist Miller, We knew right away when we stepped into the factory that the space was really the main instrument for the whole record. The resonance was chilling. We were able to experiment with new recording techniques to capture the sound at different distances. Mics 100-200 feet away caught the sound barreling across the room. Additional tracks were recorded in a garage that had previously been home to a reptile breeder, another unconventional studio space that the quartet dubbed the gator pit.


    The group self-produced Smart Flesh, bringing in Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk, M. Ward) to mix the Pasta Sauce sessions and Jesse Lauter (Elvis Perkins, April Smith) to engineer. Instrumentation included jaw harp, musical saw, stylophone, oversized drum kits, and three antique pump organs that the band had found and restored. The exquisitely crafted, achingly spare arrangements at times recall the early recordings of Leonard Cohen, and Miller's voice, on a track like Burn, displays a similarly gruff yet plaintive timbre. The deeply melancholic mood the group favors, starting with a spellbindingly slow-motion rendering of George Carter's 1920's era Ghost Woman Blues, will appeal to fans of the backwoods musings of Bon Iver or the lovelorn southern balladry of the Avett Brothers, with whom The Low Anthem has toured.

    The Magician's Birthday

    Reissue of their 5th studio album, originally released in 1972. Album reached #31 on the US Album Charts and is RIAA-Certified GOLD. Includes the singles "Blind Eye" and "Sweet Lorraine.



    Loosely based on a story by Ken Hensley, The Magician's Birthday continues Uriah Heep's adventurous immersion into fantasy worlds at a time when similarly sci-fi pop-culture releases such as Star Wars and Dungeons and Dragons were still years away. Influential in concept, appearance, and sound, the 1972 record remains a thematic bookend to Demons and Wizards, released the same year and, akin to this set, recognized as the group's high-water mark.


    Both records resonate with a newfound vitality in a 21st century engrossed in a resurgence in comic-book superheroes and gothic tales. Pursuing a more streamlined, cleaner sound that scales back harder arrangements and accentuates prog-rock and blues elements, the British band accentuates texture and hooks throughout. Uriah Heep attains a dynamic balance between brief, punchy fare (Spider Woman) and spooky, cosmic piano balladry (Echoes in the Dark), with guitarist Mick Box supplying versatile leads and underlying narratives with exceptional tonal shadings.


    Space-rock synthesizers and subtle xylophones help in further setting the moods. The Magician's Birthday skirts the parody that befell many albums that copied its formula by way of fine-tuned songwriting, David Byron's passionate singing, and cohesive playing. Groups ranging from Iron Maiden to Emerson Lake and Palmer drew from its example. Boasting arguably the strongest production of Uriah Heep's career, the record exudes early 70s warmth and organic sonics.


    As soon as your turntable's needle hits the grooves, an era renowned for wood-encased receivers, tube amplifiers, and vintage instruments will emerge in front of your eyes. Whether it's the whirring organ and eerie frequency effects on the crunchy FM radio favorite Sweet Lorraine or the ringing bells on the epic multi-part title track, The Magician's Birthday pulls you into its spell with ethereal power and supernatural charm.

    Volume 7

    Bola's music aggressively melds sheer force of spirit with a sound not often heard by ears outside the remote Upper East Region of Ghana. His bold fury stems from the kologo-a two-stringed lute with a calabash gourd resonator-and Frafra-language vocals, emitted in raspy bursts. This is some of the most distinct and dynamic music to come out of Ghana since the emergence of hiplife music in the mid-90s. Volume 7, which came out in 2008, is just one entry in a brilliant series of recordings Bola has released.

    Some Offcell Voices

    Two Legendary PINBACK EPs Compiled, Remastered, And Released On Vinyl For The First Time


    Remastered For Vinyl From Original Recordings


    In the early days of Pinback, they were known mostly as two lauded musicians who spent their spare time away from their primary projects (Three Mile Pilot, Thingy, Heavy Vegetable) to hone their home recording skills while experimenting with ideas, tones, and instrumentation that didn't quite fit into those primary projects. Pinback hadn't yet become their day job; it hadn't yet become a well-oiled 5-piece touring machine, and it had no idea where it was going to go. In retrospect, that earnest curiosity is what makes those early Pinback recordings so resonant and so unique, and what separated them from every indie rock band of this century.


    Every bit as powerful and expressive as their first two albums, the 1999 EP, Some Voices, and the 2003 EP, Offcell, famously bucked the perception of EPs as outtakes and toss-offs. What were ostensibly minor stopgaps between albums became massive fan favorites and staples of Pinback's live show. Having never been released on vinyl, it's only fitting that we revisit these poignant recordings - and take the opportunity to painstakingly remaster and repackage them into the full-length album that never was, the aptly named Some Offcell Voices.

    Unvarnished

    Unvarnished is the 14th studio album by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts released on the Blackheart Records label.


    Joan Jett has been through some dark times over the last 10 years - so many that she refers to it as her 'decade of death.' But she's channeled that grief into a new album, 'Unvarnished,' that contains some of her most personal work.


    I wrote a lot about what teenagers write about: love, sex and partying and having a good time. As you grow up, things change, she explained. You have responsibilities and realize you've got to do stuff. I suppose you could run from that, but you've got to be there for your family and your friends.


    Jett's 'decade of death' included the loss of both parents, which - as one might expect - proved difficult to cope with. They made it possible for me to do this. They encouraged me. They got me the guitar, she recalled. My father, who hated rock & roll, put up with it. He didn't come down on me to stop it. So losing my parents was big, and I think it translated to the music in songs like 'Fragile,' which is about life being fragile, love being fragile, how easy it is to break hearts.


    Those themes carry over into other songs on 'Unvarnished,' as Jett went on to explain. 'Hard to Grow Up' is about responsibility and realizing that I've got to do this, she continued. The song 'Make It Back' is about Hurricane Sandy and people's attitudes. You don't see a lot of press about it as I go around the country. It was very devastating. My town is still beat up. People were really crushed. It gave me a sense of what it's like to be in a war zone.


    It wasn't just personal or communal tragedies that stood between Jett and new material, either. I convinced myself I had writer's block, she explained. It was 'Reality Mentality' that was the song that took me a long time to write. I used to think that songs just came to me. They didn't - you had to sit down and work at it. Just be patient, write a couple of lines, leave it, come back to it and stuff will pop out. And all of a sudden, stuff started coming, and I realized: You don't have writer's block. Your expectations were wrong.


    What it all adds up to, in Jett's opinion, is a record that should resonate with fans. The songs have a serious tone, but they're relatable, she concluded. They're songs about stuff everybody goes through.

    No Help Coming

    No Help Coming is the fourth full-length release by Holly Golightly & the Brokeoffs, and the latest of nearly 30 albums on which the veteran indie icon is featured. As much as her work has evolved over the years, the London-born, Georgia-based singer/guitarist has maintained a fierce fidelity to the same raw DIY musical principles that first established her as a seminal influence upon multiple generations of garage combos and lo-fi artists. Her current outfit, Holly Golightly & the Brokeoffs, is a stripped down duo that teams her with Texas-bred multi-instrumentalist and longtime collaborator Lawyer Dave, who contributes guitar, drums and backing vocals.


    On No Help Coming, Holly Golightly & the Brokeoffs continue to make music that's spare and earthy yet unfailingly tuneful, drawing upon gritty blues, country and rockabilly influences while maintaining an unmistakable personal resonance. The 12-song set, recorded in the twosome's adopted home state of Georgia, features such notable originals as The Rest Of Your Life, You're Under Arrest, Get Out of My House and the swaggering title track, which packs as much of a musical and emotional punch as anything they've ever recorded.


    No Help Coming also continues Golightly's longstanding tradition of putting her stamp on unexpected cover material, with personalized reading of country legend Bill Anderson's The Lord Knows We're Drinking, the mysterious Mr. Undertaker's 1955 rhythm-and-blues cult classic Here Lies My Love, and Wendell Austin's vintage psycho-country epic L.S.D. Made a Wreck of Me.

    The Magician's Birthday


    Influential 1972 Record Delves into Moody Fantasy Worlds, Thematically Bookends British Band's Demons and Wizards


    Organic Production and Tonal Shadings Exude Revered Early 70s Hi-Fi Sound: Reissue Faithfully Replicates Original Gatefold Sleeve and Pressed on Colored Vinyl


    Loosely based on a story by Ken Hensley, The Magician's Birthday continues Uriah Heep's adventurous immersion into fantasy worlds at a time when similarly sci-fi pop-culture releases such as Star Wars and Dungeons and Dragons were still years away. Influential in concept, appearance, and sound, the 1972 record remains a thematic bookend to Demons and Wizards, released the same year and, akin to this set, recognized as the group's high-water mark. Both records resonate with a newfound vitality in a 21st century engrossed in a resurgence in comic-book superheroes and gothic tales.


    Pursuing a more streamlined, cleaner sound that scales back harder arrangements and accentuates prog-rock and blues elements, the British band accentuates texture and hooks throughout. Uriah Heep attains a dynamic balance between brief, punchy fare (Spider Woman) and spooky, cosmic piano balladry (Echoes in the Dark), with guitarist Mick Box supplying versatile leads and underlying narratives with exceptional tonal shadings. Space-rock synthesizers and subtle xylophones help in further setting the moods. The Magician's Birthday skirts the parody that befell many albums that copied its formula by way of fine-tuned songwriting, David Byron's passionate singing, and cohesive playing. Groups ranging from Iron Maiden to Emerson Lake and Palmer drew from its example.


    Boasting arguably the strongest production of Uriah Heep's career, the record exudes early 70s warmth and organic sonics. As soon as your turntable's needle hits the grooves, an era renowned for wood-encased receivers, tube amplifiers, and vintage instruments will emerge in front of your eyes. Whether it's the whirring organ and eerie frequency effects on the crunchy FM radio favorite Sweet Lorraine or the ringing bells on the epic multi-part title track, The Magician's Birthday pulls you into its spell with ethereal power and supernatural charm.


    Complete with a faithful replication of the original gatefold sleeve, and replete with dead-quiet surfaces, this Wax Cathedral reissue is pressed at RTI, America's best record plant. Better still, it's on colored vinyl, to boot!

    What Is This Heart?

    Arriving two years after the haunting, glacial neo-soul of 2012's much-loved Total Loss, Tom Krell - under
    the moniker How To Dress Well - will release his third album "What Is This Heart?". Since the
    release of his debut Love Remains in 2010, Krell has crafted a reputation as one of America's most original,
    focused and beguiling young songwriters and "What Is This Heart?" nds How To Dress Well at the top of
    his game.


    Merging ever surprising production choices and aesthetic detail with a sensual but sincere R&B inuence
    and a deep, grounded emotionality, "What Is This Heart?" is the next step in Tom Krell's unique and
    searching artistic trajectory and asserts him as an artist of great courage, taste and craft. Its twelve songs
    were conceived and written during months of grueling international touring and realized with producer
    Rodaidh McDonald (Vampire Weekend, The xx, Savages, Adele) in Berlin, and the result is an ambitious
    21st century pop album that takes inuence from artists as varied as Prince, Lou Reed, Burial and Tracy
    Chapman.


    More condent, daring and open than any How to Dress Well release thus far, "What Is This Heart?" is at
    once Krell's most deeply personal work and also his most universal in resonance. It is a record that delves
    into the core of the psyche and touches on themes of isolation, loss and existential anguish, but in the end
    nds redemption in the innite possibilities of love. The songs tackle ideas of anxiety, fear, lack of control,
    nightmare, death, pain, pleasure, pride and shame, trust and commitment with an honesty and intimacy
    that is rare in the modern age.

    Duke Ellington Meets Coleman Hawkins

    For years Duke Ellington and tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins promised each other that they would one day find a way to collaborate on an album. Finally, in 1962, they recorded at the famed Rudy Van Gelder Studios in New Jersey, with a small personnel from the Ellington band. The event was marked by the combination of the guest tenor's distinctive and expansive tones, the rich ensemble sound, and of course, the extraordinary Ellington compositions. Duke Ellington covered the piano and brought with him Aaron Bell, brass; Lawrence Brown, trombone; Sam Woodyard, drums; and Ray Nance, cornet and violin. What became obvious almost immediately was the interplay of Hawkin's tenor and Harry Carney on alto saxophone and the alto voicing of Johnny Hodges. Highlights include the infectious calypso-like opening of Limbo Jazz that moves from solos by Hodges, Ray Nance and Lawrence Brown to a solo by Coleman Hawkins. Ellington's classic Mood Indigo is the perfect vehicle for Hawkins with his rich, resonant phrasing. Wanderlust, which was first recorded in 1938, is revived here with Lawrence Brown and Ray Nance contributing to the blues mood of the piece. Duke Ellington Meets Coleman Hawkins features two legendary masters of jazz in a meeting that remains as masterful and thrilling as it did when it first took place in 1962.
