Omar Hakim - We Are One (2014) {Ozmosis}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 387MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Fusion, Jazz-Funk

Hakim is again having a great time on We Are One, his first solo album in 14 years, as he does a deep-dive into his long and varied history as a supporting player for acts as diverse as Madonna, Dire Straits, Sting, David Bowie and Miles Davis to craft an album that doesn't neatly fit into a single category. Hakim isn't as much about meeting expectations as he is making music that comes across as honest and sincere without a trace of calculation or catering to trends.

Pianist/singer/songwriter, Eliane Elias is known for her distinctive and immediately recognizable musical style which blends her Brazilian roots, her sensuous, alluring voice with her impressive instrumental jazz, classical and compositional skills. This live recording need not fear comparison with the studio recordings - despite the greater number of stars involved in their production - as the depth of knowledge of the material acquired over a long period of time and the live atmosphere inspire this recording.

A 1992 CD reissue of their 1979 album, among their only releases ever issued by a major label. It was characteristically free-wheeling and eclectic, with long stretches of classical, Asian, African, and jazz coming together, and the group mixing structured ensemble work with surging free solos.

It was a comfortable, inspiring location for the musicians and the tracks were personally mixed by the band leader Mike Mainieri.

Mark Egan - As We Speak (2007) [2CDs] {Wavetone}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC Image level 8 | Cue+Log | Full Scans 300dpi | 659MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Fusion

Atmospheric and serpentine, the two-disc As We Speak finds electric fretless bassist Mark Egan leading his trio through a series of enigmatic and propulsive original songs. An acolyte of the late great bassist Jaco Pastorious, Egan has a lithe touch on his instrument, and tracks such as the leadoff "Spirals" evince a hypnotic, fusion-esque aesthetic. Joining Egan here are the equally superb jazz giants guitarist John Abercrombie and drummer Danny Gottlieb. These are three technical dynamos as well as artists sensitive to creative group interplay.

Richard Galliano & Eddy Louiss - Face To Face (2001)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 13 Tracks | 58:05 | 136 MB
Genre: Jazz, Musette, World | Label: Dreyfus

Face to Face presents two brilliant French instrumentalists in a pairing as unusual as it is inspired. Accordionist Richard Galliano and Hammond organist Eddy Louiss make riveting and heartfelt music together. Their rapport is apparent from the very first notes of Louiss' "Sang Mêlé," played with percussive grit in a grooving 6/4. Thanks to Louiss' basslines, the sound is remarkably full, whether the duo is playing tango, bossa nova, or jazz. The most striking repertoire choice is Benny Golson's classic ballad "I Remember Clifford"...

There are those special individuals among us who always seek a challenge.

He has recently become enamored with long distance running, training himself to be a peer amongst some of the best long distance and mountain runners in the world.

Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen - Uncharted Land (1992) {Epic}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 301MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz, World Fusion

Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen was a Danish jazz upright bassist known for his impressive technique and innovative approach. By the age of fifteen, he had the ability to accompany leading musicians at nightclubs, working regularly at Copenhagen's Jazzhus Montmartre, after his debut there on New Year's Eve 1961, when he was only 15. When seventeen, he had already turned down an offer to join the Count Basie orchestra, mainly because he was too young to get legal permission to live and work as a musician in America.

Richard Galliano & Gabriele Mirabassi ‎- Coloriage (1992)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 9 Tracks | 56:26 | 126 MB
Genre: Jazz, Musette, World | Label: EGEA

Accordionist Richard Galliano did for European folk — specifically, the early 20th century French ballroom dance form known as musette — what his mentor Astor Piazzolla did for the Argentinian tango. Galliano reimagined and revitalized a musical tradition, expanding its emotional range to reflect modern sensibilities, opening it up to improvisation learned through American jazz. In fact, Galliano was more of a jazz musician than a folk one, although he blurred the lines so much that distinctions were often difficult to make. Born in France of Italian stock, Galliano began playing accordion (as his father had) at a young age. He later picked up the trombone, and studied composition at the Academy in Nice...

Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos - Muy Divertido! (2000) {Atlantic}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 275MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Cuban Jazz, Jazz-Rock, World Fusion

Regrouping his Latin backing band Los Cubanos Postizos, Marc Ribot offers a sequel to his 1998 Arsenio Rodriguez tribute The Prosthetic Cubans in Muy Divertido! ("very entertaining"). While there are once again a few songs penned by Rodriguez, there's also a greater variety of composers represented, including three Ribot originals. Ribot's angular, visceral guitar style adds rock drive and avant-garde edge to these deep Latin grooves, and Anthony Coleman's spacy organ work adds a playfully strange texture to some tracks.

Frank Zappa - Them Or Us (1984) {1995 Ryko Remaster Complete Series}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 508 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 169 Mb
Full Artwork @ 600 dpi (png) -> 167 Mb | 5% repair rar

Rock / Experimental Rock / Jazz Rock / Art Rock

Released in October 1984, Them or Us is Frank Zappa's last studio rock album (unless one counts Thing-Fish). It contains a little of everything for everyone, but most of all it has that cold and dry early-'80s feel that made this and other albums like The Man From Utopia and Frank Zappa Meets the Mothers of Prevention sound dated pretty quickly. The record begins and ends with covers. "The Closer You Are" is one of those '50s R&B tunes the man loved so much.

Richard Galliano - Ruby My Dear (2005)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 9 Tracks | 54:18 | 127 MB
Genre: Jazz, Musette, World | Label: Dreyfus Records

There are two types of accordionists in jazz: Richard Galliano and everyone else. Galliano plays his instrument with the fluidity and looseness of a saxophonist, the technique of a classical pianist, and the individuality of a singer. Few are close to being on his level. The Ruby, My Dear sessions find Galliano in New York, interacting with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Clarence Penn. While the intriguing repertoire includes a tango, a couple of jazz standards ("Ruby, My Dear" and...
