Lost Bayou Ramblers 2003 Pilette Breakdown





Genre: Cajun-Zydeco
Rate: 128 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:47:08
Size: 43,09 MB

United States

While many modern Cajun bands emphasize gimmicky tunes and meld multiple genres in order to generate success(think Wayne Toups), the Lost Bayou Ramblers stand firmly against the tide by playing tunes that sound just as comfortable in the modern world as they would in the days of such greats as the Balfa Brothers, Nathan Abshire, and Joe Falcon. In fact, I'll stick my neck out and say that the Lost Bayou Ramblers are probably the best modern Cajun group around these days.

They sound great on tunes like "Moi J'Connais Pas" and "Raine Stomp." Also, tunes like "Louisiana Boogie Woogie" let you know that the Michot brothers know where they came from AND where they are going. This album is perfect for anyone longing to hear music from the good ol' days. I have no problem playing this for my father, because I know he won't be hearing a sell out artist when he hears these guys play.

My favorite tunes on this album are "Holly Beach" and "Tu Peut Cogner." I'm sure you'll love this album as well. Highly recommended, and I can't forget to mention the wonderful liner notes supplied on this disc by one Ryan A. Brasseaux. He manages to give you an expertly written introduction to the Ramblers and a little bit of a history lesson. All around, this is one good album. (Ken Fontenot)

Stoika & Stojka 2008 Just Another City





Genre: Jazz
Rate: 170 kbps VBR / 44100
Time: 00:39:28
Size: 52,08 MB

Austria

Die beiden Protagonisten von Stoika & Stojka sind seit vielen Jahren Fixgrößen der Wiener Szene. Gitarrist Harri Stojka pendelt seit vielen Jahren zwischen Jazz, Rock, Brasil und Gypsy Musik, Sängerin Melinda Stoika sang Standards mit Louie Austen, moderne Tanzmusik mit der Deep House Mafia, Avantgardistisches mit Helmut Neugebauer. Gemeinsam frönen die beiden vielseitigen Künstler einem unerhört entspannten, an der Schwerelosigkeit des Acidjazz und Brasil geschulten Stil.

„Just Another City“ ist ein Album, wie es perfekter nicht einmal im kulturellen Schmelztiegel London hätte entstehen können. Mannigfaltige Einflüsse werden da in einer Lockerheit und Luftigkeit zueinander geführt, dass man den Eindruck gewinnen könnte, dass hier die Siebziger- oder zu mindestens die frühen Neunzigerjahre nochmals schaumgeboren werden. Gefühlvolle Gitarrenlicks, warm pulsierender Bass, pointierte Pianopassagen und hoch über allem, zelebriert Melinda Stoika die Wonnen des Lebens: sensibel, aber doch mit dem nötigen Punch.

Billie Holiday 1956 The Essential Billie Holiday - Carnegie Hall Concert Recorded Live



Genre: Jazz
Rate: 179 kbps VBR / 44100 from lossless source!
Time: 00:44:35
Size: 58,93 MB

United States

There are times that I thank God, the Fates, or whomever for truly great moments in musical history, and "The Essential Billie Holiday" is definitely one of them. I first heard this album when I was 17 years old and from the opening strains of "Lady Sings The Blues" to the final bars of "What A Little Moonlight Can Do", I was hooked. I committed that entire album to memory in less than two weeks, every note, nuance and shade. Lady could convey more about love, life and hunger in one song than most of us could over the course of an entire lifetime. Her voice had gotten rougher in her later years but to me that just made it all the more expressive.

I won't get into the darker aspects of Lady's life; those who are into Billie Holiday are all too familiar with that, and for those who aren't, I strongly suggest you read her autobiography, "Lady Sings The Blues". This concert, taped in November of 1956, just three years before her death in July of 1959, proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Lady was indeed on top that night, the most honest JAZZ singer this backwards country ever produced.

I stress the word jazz because so many people tend to categorize Lady as a blues singer, something that she herself to a degree took humbrage to. Out of the hundreds of songs she recorded, less than a handful were stamped with letter, if not spirit of the blues. Don't believe me, listen with your own ears and judge for yourself, then you'll know what I'm talking about.

01 - Reading From Lady Sings The Blues 1 02:53

02 - Lady Sings The Blues 02:38
