Malcolm McLaren, of Sex Pistols fame, made teenager Annabella Lwin the centerpiece of his next creation. Backing her with members of Adam & the Ants, they were dubbed Bow Wow Wow and released See Jungle! See Jungle! in 1981. The focus was on style and the music was a mix of dance and new wave always with a heavy nod toward percussion. The results are mixed and you sometimes have the feeling that you are hearing the same song repeated. However, it's difficult not to find yourself drumming your fingers to the frantic beats. Lwin makes sure that you never forget that she's only 15, either through her vocal delivery or her outright declarations (as on "Chihuahua"). The band also serves up an interesting spaghetti Western instrumental on "Orang-outang" and everything falls into place on "Go Wild in the Country," with Lwin's uninhibited shrieks touting the merits of getting away from it all.

Yes: Live in Philadelphia is the video release of a concert by the progressive rock group Yes recorded live at the Philadelphia Spectrum on June 21, 1979. The concert is performed "in the round" with a rotating stage in the centre of the venue. The concert was part of the summer leg of their 1978-1979 tour to support the album Tormato. It would be the last Yes tour to feature founding vocalist Jon Anderson until the band's 1983 reformation, and the final tour to feature keyboardist Rick Wakeman until the 1991 Union tour.

Atrox - Orgasm (2003)
Metal | 1cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
Code021/SPV 085-148482 | rel: 2003 | 410Mb

For being Atrox's most accessible album, Orgasm is still pretty damn inaccessible. Listening to Monika sing is like being afflicted with A.D.D. and going through mood swings every 30 seconds, which actually comes across as a mostly tolerable and oddly enjoyable experience. Her voice twists and turns with the direction of the music, or a more accurate statement might be that the music flows around the erratic fluidity of her voice. She sings, shrieks, squeals, squeaks, wails, and hits all kinds of highs, lows, mids, lefts, and rights. She can be scary, soothing, tongue-in-cheek, dramatic, bipolar, melodic, chaotic... and sometimes all at once. Admittedly, Monika's vocal acrobatics are not quite as off the wall here as they are on albums like Contentum or Terrestrials, but they are sufficient to remove any doubts regarding her artistic state of mind.

This time, the score was performed on synthesizer organs rather than on piano. For this special 30th Anniversary Edition of HALLOWEEN II, the original 1981 album presentation is included, newly remastered. In addition, a special suite of seven tracks has been prepared, consisting of the entire film score sequenced in chronological order and including previously unreleased music.

Phil Upchurch - Darkness, Darkness (1972) [Japanese SHM-CD Reissue 2008]
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 521 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 183 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Fusion, Jazz Funk, Jazz Blues, Jazz Pop | Label: Blue Thumb/Universal | # UICY-93418 | Time: 01:06:54

Recorded in 1971, shortly after he departed Cadet where he served as a house sideman-playing on dozens of records and a prefferred guitarist for Curtis Mayfield and Jerry Butler, Phil Upchurch headed for the West Coast and Blue Thumb Records. Produced by Tommy LiPuma, Upchurch's Darkness, Darkness is his quintessential (double) album, full of laid-back funky grooves, elegant, mind-blowing guitar work, elegant string and horn arrangements, and fine Fender Rhodes work from Donny Hathaway with legendary session bassist Chuck Rainey and smooth jazz piano great Joe Sample in the house. Upchurch effortlessly walks the line where jazz, blues, rock, soul, and funk fold into one another, yet he never gives quarter in the process.

Ann Sweeten - Tapestries of Time (2014)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | Tracks: 11 | 55:18 min | 127 Mb
Style: New Age, Piano | Label: Orange Band Records

Tapestries of Time is the tenth album by respected pianist and new age composer Ann Sweeten. Thematically, each of the album's 11 instrumental pieces relate to or are inspired in some way by the concept of time. Some are more direct, like "Hourglass" and the wistful title cut, while others are tied personally to the composer's story and history, like "CAVU" (an aviation term meaning "Ceiling and Visibility Unlimited") which is dedicated to her father, a Navy pilot in WWII. Performed almost entirely on solo piano, there are only a few additional embellishments like violin and oboe scattered among the tracks.

Erroll Garner - In Performance (2002)
Video: NTSC, MPEG-2 at 4 504 Kbps, 720 x 480 at 29.970 fps | Audio: PCM 2 channels at 1 536 Kbps, 48.0 KHz
Genre: Jazz | Label: White Star | Copy: Untouched | Release Date: 1 July 2002 | Runtime: 72 min. | 3,06 GB (DVD5)

One of the most distinctive of all pianists, Erroll Garner proved that it was possible to be a sophisticated player without knowing how to read music, that a creative jazz musician can be very popular without watering down his music, and that it is possible to remain an enthusiastic player without changing one's style once it is formed. A brilliant virtuoso who sounded unlike anyone else, on medium tempo pieces, Erroll Garner often stated the beat with his left hand like a rhythm guitar while his right played chords slightly behind the beat, creating a memorable effect.

Genre: Jazz | Label: Yarlung

Sophisticated Lady’s debut album for Yarlung Records is an elegant stew of tradition-based jazz infused with some modern spice, a tasty dish sure to please the most discerning of connoisseurs. Working through a studio set of original pieces and classics, all recorded in one take, the quartet clearly demonstrates there is life in tradition yet. Innovation doesn’t have to be far out, strange, outre. Such innovation can sound “go-o-o-od,” very good.

Kayo - Manhattan Sunset (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 62:04 min | 146 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: MP Records

Manhattan Sunset, the sixth studio album from pianist Kayo Hiraki, highlights a seasoned player drawing upon her various influences and varied interests within jazz. From the opener, 59th Street Station B Line, an angular her composition reminiscent of Monk's medium-tempo bop, to Midday Sun Shower, with its funky &sweet, contemporary jazz stylings, the album ferries listeners through a pleasantly diverse array of genres within the jazz idiom. Tarte Aux Fraises and Runaway Thought (sound track from the film 'Birth Day'), both jazz waltzes, feature strong trio work, as bassist Patrick O'Leary and drummer Eric Halvorson lend stimulating support to Kayo's piano solos as they build steam.

Lou Rawls - Greatest Hits
EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 362 MB | Full Artwork: 31 MB | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: Repertoire Rec. # REP 4244-WZ | Country/Year: Germany 1992
Genre: Jazz, Funk & Soul | Style: Smooth Jazz, Soul, Easy Listening

From gospel and early R&B to soul and jazz to blues and straight-up pop, Lou Rawls was a consummate master of African-American vocal music whose versatility helped him adapt to the changing musical times over and over again while always remaining unmistakably himself. Blessed with a four-octave vocal range, Rawls' smooth, classy elegance -- sort of a cross between Sam Cooke and Nat King Cole -- permeated nearly everything he sang, yet the fire of his early gospel days was never too far from the surface...

Puccini - Tosca (Marco Boemi) (2012)

Audio1: Italian / LPCM Audio / 2.0 / 48 kHz / 2304 kbps / 24-bit

Classical | ART HAUS | Sub: Italian, English, German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Korean

This production from the historic Teatro Carlo Felice in Genova, Italy, stars the opera worlds power couple, Daniela Dessì and Fabio Armiliato, as lovers Tosca and Cavaradossi. A tragic tale of doomed love interlaced with the age-old themes of jealousy, lust and intrigue, has ensured Tosca its place in the top ten of opera favourites. The task of putting Tosca on the stage in a way that is credible and timeless is both straightforward and difficult. For the three main roles the unscrupulous police chief Vitellio Scarpia and the painter Mario Cavaradossi, who provide a framework for Floria Tosca, a famous singer, all you need is star performers of the required virtuosity, although they do need to display a certain enjoyment in performing something one has never been able to take for granted in music theatre.
