    The Robert Johnson Songbook (Awaiting Repress)

    Peter Green is widely regarded as one of the finest guitarists of his generation. His virtuoso blues playing was an integral part of the sound of the original Fleetwood Mac, which he founded in 1967, and his tortured lead placed him on a par with legends such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page.


    In the early '70s, Green left the band and he was to spend much of the next three decades in the wilderness, battling a number of health issues. He re-emerged in the late 1990s performing with the Peter Green Splinter Group, and the second album of his remarkable revival, 'The Robert Johnson Songbook', is one of the greatest classic blues records and was the first British album to win the prestigious WC Handy Award. The music features 16 exquisitely heart-breaking performances of the best Johnson originals, with Green on lead guitar, harmonica and vocals, plus support from Nigel Watson, Roger Cotton, Larry Tolfree, Neil Murray and guest Paul Rodgers.


    This edition of Peter Green's 'The Robert Johnson Songbook' will be available as an LP for the first time, pressed on to 180g heavyweight audiophile vinyl in single packaging including a 2-page insert with sleeve notes and new artwork.

It was recorded in London and originally released in the UK in 1965 before it was supposedly deleted in 1969 at Simon's request.

    The Randy Newman Songbook (Box Set)

    Nonesuch Records releases the four-LP, vinyl-only, limited-edition The Randy Newman Songbook box set in 2016. Nonesuch's Randy Newman Songbook series-comprising solo recordings of songs from throughout Randy Newman's five-decade career-previously included two volumes, released on CD in 2003 and 2011; the box set marks their first release on vinyl. Sixteen additional songs from a newly released third volume, along with five bonus tracks (Feels Like Home, A Wedding in Cherokee County, Family Album: Homage to Alfred, Emil and Lionel Newman, I'm Dreaming,and Wandering Boy), join those first two volumes in a new, thematic sequencing, to create this new complete Songbook box set. Mitchell Froom produced The Randy Newman Songbook, Vol. 1 and was joined on Vol. 2 and Vol. 3 by Newman's lifelong friend and colleague Lenny Waronker.


    The New York Times said of the first volume of The Randy Newman Songbook: The great craftsmanship is more apparent in the stripped-down context, and the Associated Press said, Few singer-songwriters could inject more new life into solo piano versions of their work than Randy Newman. The UK's Uncut called Vol. 2 another subtly sublime stroll through the master's back catalogue, noting that Newman is owner of a peerless canon, and that the album isolates his full range of qualities: the improbable juxtapositions of caustic topicality and heart-wrenching universality, the concise character studies, and singing and piano playing that seem to emanate from the very fabric of America.

    The Great American Songbook (Pure Pleasure)

    This is a gem of an album and one of my favorites by McRae. It was recorded live for Atlantic Records at Donte's Club in Los Angeles on November 6, 1971, and released the following year.


    What I love is not only the choice of songs but the sound quality and the performance itself. The set not only contains established standards by Ellington, Cole Porter and the other greats, but some new (at the time) material. Including Burt Bacharach's They Long To Be Close To You in the set was a wise decision in my opinion. It deserves to be a standard. Of course, there is the obligatory Billie Holiday song that McRae would include in all of her performances. On this album it's I Cried For You, which was one of Billie's first recordings in 1936.


    The sound quality is superb. The engineer managed to capture not only the energy from the live performance, but the richness of the ensemble backing McRae. Indeed, the musicians backing her are perfect for the material: Jimmy Rowles on piano (who wrote the Ballad of Thelonious Monk), Joe Pass on guitar, Chuck Domanico on bass and Chuck Flores on drums.


    If you love hearing some of the best songs from the Great American Songbook performed by a master this album will delight you. There is a cohesiveness to the album that earns kudos from the production team as well as the performers. Interestingly McRae and her ensemble performed 32 songs the night that this was recorded. One can only speculate as to why a volume 2 wasn't released. Regardless, this is - in my opinion - some of McRae's best live material. - Mike Tarrani


    Musicians:



    • Carmen McRae (vocal, piano)

    • Joe Pass (guitar)

    • Jimmy Rowles (piano)

    • Chuck Domanico (bass)

    • Chuck Flores (drums)



    Recording: November 1971 live at Donte's, Los Angeles CA., by Ray Thompson

    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    This Girl's In Love (A Bacharach & David Songbook)

    The album features some of Burt Bacharach and Hal David's most memorable co-compositions and sees Rumer bring her extensive experience and singular talent to bear on her most enticing undertaking to date. Recorded at the renowned Capitol Studios with accomplished arranger, composer and orchestrator, Rob Shirakbari - THIS GIRL'S IN LOVE includes an appearance by Bacharach himself on piano. To mark the news, Rumer has shared a first track (They Long To Be) Close To You, with live plans to be announced shortly.


    What's most fitting to THIS GIRL'S IN LOVE is the personal relationship between Rumer and Shirakbari. The pair married in 2015 in Shirakbari's native Arkansas after first meeting at a Dionne Warwick gala at the Royal Albert Hall where Rumer was to sing a duet of Bacharach & David's Hasbrook Heights. With Shirakbari having worked for 25 years with Bacharach and 30 years with Dionne Warwick-serving as musical director to them both-this could even be deemed a Bacharach romance. It was a natural project for the newly married couple to create together, with both having great respect and reverence for the song catalogue.


    Some of the songs on THIS GIRL'S IN LOVE are as familiar as any from the 20th century. Which is why Rumer and Shirakbari decided, in many cases, to remake/remodel them, affording these standards a melancholia that gets right to the emotive core of Bacharach's melodies and David's lyrics. Where before (They Long to Be) Close to You might have been slightly wistful, here there is a sense that the lyric's longing is unlikely to be consummated. The Look of Love is more sepulchral, with just a taste of the bossa nova tendencies of the '60s versions. You'll Never Get To Heaven has all the sophistication of Dionne Warwick's take, but with a new attention to the cautionary narrative of the lyrics. And Rumer has dug deeper into the catalogue to find the hidden treasure Balance of Nature and made it her own.

    1. The Look Of Love
    2. Balance Of Nature
    3. One Less Bell To Answer
    4. Are You There (With Another Girl)
    5. You'll Never Get To Heaven (If You Break My Heart)

    Father, Son, Holy Ghost

    Girls return with their long awaited second full-length. Both more spacious and tuneful than either their self-made debut or their lush EP, Father, Son, Holy Ghost is a gorgeous, ambitious rock album, enlivened by flashes of innocent pop and textured by its wealth of influences and willingness to face sadness.


    Recorded in SF and LA with Doug Boehm and featuring a gospel choir on several tracks, the album draws from the rock songbook to tell its tales, it navigates from the Roy Orbison-esque heart-on-sleeve love songs the band is known for through to shoegaze, soul, metal, folk and gospel.


    Father, Son, Holy Ghost is somehow both intimate and expansive. It captures the promise of early recordings and expands to cover new ground while still providing surprises at every turn. A triumphant accomplishment.

    MTO Plays Sly

    New York City's favorite 'little big band' Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra cracks open wide the monumental songbook of Sly & The Family Stone on its third album, MTO Plays Sly.


    On this freewheeling and jubilant 13-track tribute, MTO, propelled by a dynamic cast of special guests, treats Sly and Co. with the same reverence it would Duke Ellington or Count Basie, illuminating the melodic and harmonic sophistication of the iconoclast's body of work by re-imagining the music through the filter of their own downtown NYC aesthetic, while upholding th Day-Glo soul and psychedelic funk that is the backbone for classics like M'Lady, Everybody People and Family Affair.


    MTO is Steven Bernstein, Peter Apfelbaum, Doug Wieselman, Erik Lawrence, Curtis Fowlkes, Charlie Burnham, Matt Munisteri, Ben Allison and Ben Perowsky. MTO Plays Sly also features many special guests including Anthony Hegarty, Bernie Worrell, Bill Laswell, Dean Bowman, Martha Wainwright, Sandra St. Victor, Shilpa and Vernon Reid.

    The Hawk Relaxes

    Like a fine wine, Coleman Hawkins proves on The Hawk Relaxes that good things only get better with age. Joined by six-string maestro Kenny Burrell, the
    legendary tenor saxophonist grooves in a mellow mood in this quintet setting alongside pianist Ronnell Bright, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Andrew
    Cyrille. A high water mark in his later career, The Hawk Relaxes showcases the understated sophistication of Hawkins' playing as he makes instant
    classics out of tunes from the Great American Songbook in a style befitting of an evening by the fire, the calm ocean, or a late night with a sweetheart
    over candles and wine. This quintet, quite possibly the most unique Hawkins ever fronted, delivers a supple, relaxed, and sophisticated affair on par with
    anything he ever did during this period. Recorded by the inimitable Rudy Van Gelder, this classic jazz album has now been newly reissued on VINYL and
    is a must-have for both the casual fan and the hard-core jazz aficionado.

    The Tony Bennett/Bill Evans Album

    One of the best albums of either's career, The Tony Bennett / Bill Evans Album spotlights two legends at work in equal partnership, tackling classics from
    the Great American Songbook with masterful ease. A consistently enthusiastic and balanced musical partnership, Bennett and Evans shine both
    individually and in tandem-Evans supporting Bennett with his steady left hand and then frequently diving into melodically inventive solos at the end of the
    phrase. Recorded in intimate sessions at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA, without even a bassist or drummer present, this album is the product of
    meticulous personal involvement by the two giants of their genres. Bennett and Evans selected the tunes, worked out the arrangements semi-spontaneously, and picked the final takes to be used. The result was a perfect jazz/pop crossover worthy of many repeat listens. A must-have on vinyl for
    any serious fan of either of these two greats.

    Duets II

    Import

    In a 1965 interview with LIFE, Frank Sinatra said: For my money, Tony Bennett is the best singer in the business.
    He excites me when I watch him. He moves me. He's the singer who gets across what the composer has in mind, and probably a little more.


    And for the past sixty-odd years, Tony has been doing exactly that. With 15 Grammy Awards and a multitude of Gold and Platinum status recordings under his arm, this man sure knows how to work those pipes.


    Duets II is another collection of American Songbook standards performed in the best of ways.


    Duets II includes collaborations with the best voices of music: Aretha Franklin, Natalie Cole, Norah Jones and k.d. lang grace the recording booth with this legendary singer.
    But it is the tragic and premature passing of Amy Winehouse that makes this album truly special; her appearance on the duet 'Body And Soul' is the last known recording of the British songbird, and it is a truly heartrending version of the 1930 jazz classic.

    To All The Girls...

    Decades of heartfelt performances and compositions in popular music have long solidified Willie's reputation as one of country's greatest romantics. To All The Girls... continues Nelson's musicial relationships with some of the most talented women in country, pop, and soul.


    Among the centerpieces of To All The Girls... is the emotional duet with Dolly Parton, From Here To The Moon and Back, a song Parton wrote for the 2012 motion picture Joyful Noise. Willie also tackles the Bill Withers' classic Grandma's Hands with Mavis Staples, duets with Sheryl Crow on The Great American Songbook selection Far Away Places, and brings a new shade to his self penned classic Always On My Mind with Carrie Underwood.


    Willie is also joined by familiar contemporaries including Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Miranda Lambert, Norah Jones and Rosanne Cash. To All The Girls... reunites Willie with producer Buddy Cannon, who worked with Willie on his most recent successful releases, Heroes and Let's Face The Music And Dance.


    Having turned 80 years old in April, Willie Nelson has no intentions of riding off into the sunset. Since signing to Legacy Recordings, Nelson has been steadily recording an releasing albums with the same rough-and-ready spirit of his timeless recordsing for RCA and Columbia Records. Heroes was praised by Uncut for being as spirited as it is poignant. Of 2013's Let's Face The Music And Dance, Paste cheered for his strongest and most engaged performances in a decade.

    Lady Sings The Blues

    Although Billie Holiday's repertoire covered barely more than a dozen pure blues numbers during the course of her long career from 1933 to 1959, music critics always referred to her as the 'Lady [who] sings the blues'. And that hasn't changed to this day. In truth the recordings she made for Columbia in the Thirties and those for Clef/ Verve between 1953 and 1957 were a highly varied mixture of titles from the American songbook and her own compositions.



    Her interpretations were a benchmark against which all aspiring singers were measured. Highly expressive, almost visual ballads went hand in hand with Billie Holiday's life and voice - and only she alone could sing them! Her voice was always embedded in the sound carpet produced by her accompanying musicians: Tony Scott and Paul Quinichette are two names who made their mark on her music in the mid-Fifties, and the rhythm group of Barney Kessel, Kenny Burrell and Chico Hamilton is really first class. The trumpeter Harry 'Sweets' Edison, a long-time friend from the Count Basie Band, sensitively accompanies the singer's mature voice.

    Joey DeFrancesco Plays Sinatra His Way

    It is tempting to play up the Italian Connection on Joey's
    newest record. With Joey's previous nod toward the Goodfellas it would be easy to claim that Frank Sinatra is the natural next step. But the simple fact of the matter is that this is tribute of one master
    of American Music to another. Perhaps no other singer in history defined the American Popular Songbook as Frank Sinatra and it is only natural that Joey DeFrancesco - so instrumental in defining
    the new B-3 sound - would turn to wealth of exceptional material from the Sinatra discography. Great music is great music and Joey knows it and has surrounded himself with great sidemen. The great Houston Person on tenor sax is on hand as is groove master guitarist Melvin Sparks and Joey's drummer of choice, Byron Landham. Together they swing through six tunes recorded by Sinatra and, while far from mimicking the original arrangements, they pay tribute to the legacy of Sinatra, refracted
    through the prism of their own talent and imagination.

    Upward Spiral

    Featuring Special Guest Kurt Elling


    180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Gatefold Sleeve


    It is no secret that the Branford Marsalis Quartet can be as freewheeling off the bandstand as in performance. Saxophonist Marsalis, pianist Joey Calderazzo, bassist Eric Revis and drummer Justin Faulkner are each bold personalities with strong opinions, equally intense in both musical and verbal exchanges. The band talks about all kinds of things, many of which are unprintable, Marsalis admits. But we have serious musical debates as well. One of these conversations led to Upward Spiral, the new album with special guest Kurt Elling.


    When Branford met Kurt at a Thelonious Monk Institute competition, they had a conversation at the bar about doing a record together. What has emerged, after an intense week of performance and recording in New Orleans, is a collection that blends Songbook staples, jazz standards, and standards-to-be from a diverse array of composers.


    Every track on Upward Spiral confirms the beyond-category strengths of both the Quartet and Elling.


    For Marsalis, Upward Spiral is consistent with all of his previous music. My philosophy of jazz is that it should be about strong melodies and a great beat, and every song here has a melody that you can hold in your mind, that you can sing.

    Nobody But Me

    Michael Buble's new album Nobody But Me is scheduled to be released via Warner Bros / Reprise Records. Nobody But Me is the multi-Grammy, multi-platinum award winning singer's first album in three years and is his 9th studio album. It follows the critically acclaimed To Be Loved album, which was his fourth album to reach No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200 Charts.


    The exciting new collection of original pop tunes and beautiful standards highlight Buble's talent as a profound interpreter of the American songbook as well as his gifted songwriting and producing style.


    Nobody But Me was recorded in Los Angeles and Vancouver and includes three new Buble' penned originals along with breathtaking reinventions of classics including "My Baby Just Cares For Me," "The Very Thought of You," Brian Wilson's "God Only Knows" and the Johnny Mercer classic "I Wanna Be Around". Guest artists on the album are Meghan Trainor and Black Thought (of The Roots). The new album is co-produced by Buble along with Johan Carlsson for MXM Productions, Alan Chang, Jason "Spicy G" Goldman, The Monsters and Strangerz.


    "I don't know that I've ever had this much fun working on an album. It was especially thrilling to collaborate with my band who understand that I want to sound better than I've ever sounded. I'm also very proud of the new songs. Having the opportunity to co-produce was a joy for me personally," commented Buble.

    Fiend Club Lounge

    The two unlikely worlds of punk rock and the martini-sipping lounge scene have collided as the Misfits Meet the Nutley Brass on a hip, swinging collection entitled Fiend Club Lounge.


    Officially endorsed by the Misfits and released via their Misfits Records label imprint, Misfits Meet the Nutley Brass: Fiend Club Lounge is a smooth ride through 11 Misfits classics, as performed by Sam Elwitt's Nutley, N.J., bred Nutley Brass.


    If Grandpa Munster had a band as a teenager it would have sounded like the Misfits Meet the Nutley Brass! said Misfits founding member Jerry Only. Fun for monsters of all ages.


    FranchÉ Coma, original guitarist for the Misfits, added: 'The Misfits meet the Nutley Brass: Fiend Club Lounge' is one of the best renditions of some of the best Misfits songs ever recorded. Any true, and I mean true, musician will appreciate the intricacies of the instrumentations on this record. It takes punk music to a different level. It shows us how anything is possible if you want to make it happen.


    The lounge-core tribute to the legendary horror-punk band was envisioned by the project's Producer, John Cafiero, who had been directing a Ramones DVD and was in touch with Elwitt for use of some of his music from The Ramones Songbook as Played by the Nutley Brass. Cafiero had discovered the Nutley Brass back in 1995 and after contacting Elwitt about the Ramones DVD, the concept of Fiend Club Lounge began to develop.


    Even legendary composers of the genre like Gert Wilden, Esquivel and the Jaguar God himself, Les Baxter would be proud of these Misfits classics, served with a twist and scientifically proven to soothe your road rage, said Cafiero.


    It's supposed to be fun and funny, Elwitt said. It's not supposed to replace or improve on Misfits recordings in any sense. It's supposed to complement them. Think of it as just another way to enhance your overall Misfits experience.

    Chiaroscuro

    I BREAK HORSES is the musical project led by Maria LindÉn. From her
    Stockholm base, the Swedish artist delivered an extraordinary debut album
    in the shape of Hearts, released by Bella Union in August 2011. Forward
    two years, and the arrival of an eagerly awaited follow-up, entitled Chiaroscuro, is upon us. The latest chapter in I Break Horses' much celebrated
    songbook is everything fans could wish for and more. In the words of
    LindÉn: My only aim when starting to write this album was to ignore any
    possible second album expectations. The result is a more confident and
    evolved sound with a more dramatic expression.


    The title of Chiaroscuro - meaning light-dark - serves as the perfect
    embodiment of LindÉn's sonic creations, where an atmosphere and mood is
    created that evokes innermost feelings and thoughts residing beyond the
    surface reality of the material world. Affecting ballads such as 'Heart To
    Know' and 'You Burn' are wrapped in fragile beauty. 'Denial' and 'Medicine
    Brush' are sublime synth-pop odysseys whose pulses guide you to new
    horizons. 'Faith' is a dance anthem complete with hypnotic beats, swirling
    synths and the mesmerising looped vocals of LindÉn. I let myself write
    both the happiest songs but also the saddest, and then I put them
    together, states LindÉn. This arrangement of light and dark forms the
    essence of Chiaroscuro.


    'Ascension' is rooted in a gorgeous 80s synth-pop sound, where LindÉn's
    vocals melt into the lush sonic tapestry. The song deals with love and
    forgiveness. An irresistible groove lies at the heart of 'Disclosure' where a
    divine purity is distilled in the intricate array of instrumentation. 'You Burn' is
    perhaps the album's centrepiece, as well as being the opening track, where
    a brooding darkness envelops the surrounding human space. The delicate
    piano chords drift magnificently amidst Linden's searching lyrics. I Break
    Horses are one of those rare bands capable of conjuring up raw emotion
    through a sound that is ultimately something life-affirming.

    Within Temptation have announced that they will release their sixth studio album, 'Hydra,' on Jan. 31. In addition, the Dutch band has revealed some unexpected surprises in the form of guest appearances on the disc.


    Known for creating their own brand of symphonic metal, Within Temptation have a few surprises in store on 'Hydra.' The guest list includes collaborations with Dave Pirner of Soul Asylum, former Killswitch Engage frontman Howard Jones and perhaps the most surprising of them all - hip-hop artist Xzibit. The set also includes the recently released track 'Paradise (What About Us?)' featuring former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen.


    Xzibit joins forces with Within Temptation on a track called 'And We Run,' a song described by frontwoman Sharon Den Adel as an anthem about how to live your life. "He's rapping at full force on this song, it's really heavy," says Adel. "Xzibit brings a new element to our music that we've never had before! It's a new cross-over and we love it!"


    Jones' contribution comes on 'Dangerous,' one of the heavier tracks on the disc. "I always loved Howard's voice," shares Adel. "He makes the song even heavier than it already is. That song is one of my favorite songs on the record and one of the fastest we've ever written. It has the most bass drums we've ever used, too, and a very fast riff which we doubled with synths. It's not a typical synthesizer, though - it's distorted like a guitar, and it's very aggressive."

    Live At The Jazz Mill

    Pressed On Red Vinyl


    Unearthed tape from a jazz icon. Thanks to a 21-year-old with a tape machine, we can all experience the majesty of guitar legend Barney Kessel at his 1954 best!


    Even if you don't know Barney Kessel, you know Barney Kessel -- as a first-string member of the group of LA session musicians nicknamed The Wrecking Crew, Kessel's guitar is heard on just about every LA-based hit you'd care to name from the 60s, including songs by the Monkees and The Beach Boys' legendary Smile LP. And that's Kessel's playing on the famous fight music from the Star Trek TV series. He was regarded as the very best of the session guitarists by just about everyone around, and guitarists everywhere site him as an influence.


    But before he played rock and roll, Kessel was a jazz pioneer -- as one of the leading lights of the hard-bop movement, his jazz guitar was legendary, and he was ranked the No. 1 guitarist in Down Beat and Playboy for numerous years. He played with Sonny Rollins and Oscar Peterson (and Chico Marx -- yes, that Chico Marx!) as well as leading his own super-tight group. On albums such as The Poll Winners, Kessel defined the bop style with a jazz power trio, creating a body of work that made him a legend.


    Live At The Jazz Mill is a unique artifact -- recorded on a tape recorder by young jazz fan Jack Miller, this live recording catches Barney Kessel in the middle of his run at the Jazz Mill with a great four-piece band. The collection, gleaned from a couple of nights' best recordings, features Kessel's spirited take on such Songbook classics as Get Happy and Stardust, not to mention the Gershwin great Embraceable You. It's pressed on red vinyl and wrapped in a sleeve which captures the unique vibe of jazz graphics of the 1950s. Get with Barney Kessel, and get with a true pioneer of the jazz form!
