The Cool Scene At Cafe Bizarre - Various - Cool Scene

The Cool Scene At Cafe Bizarre
Released on 15/02/10. A compilation of the strange, over the top world of beatnik exploitation, from spoken word to soulful jazz riffing. From Greenwich Villages Cafe Bizarre with jive poetry set to improvised guitar and hepcat strangeness. Punctuated by some bongo-led jazz along with some obscure noodling that throws authentic be bop next to groovy finger-clicking out takes. A offbeat mix of sounds and styles that gathers lewd humour and cool blowing for an hour-long journey into the past.

Art And Voices
Os Cariocas, a fresh new sound from Brazil the first vocal quartet blending bossa-nova rhythms and melodies with modern jazz harmonies Quincy Jones. Os Cariocas were formed in 1942 by brothers Ismael Neto and Severino Filho, and distinguished by their ambitious and elaborate vocal arrangements for four or five voices, that combined polyphony and rhythmic effects. They became the most representative vocal group of bossa nova after their 1957 recording of "Chega de Saudade"; being one of the first recordings of this Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes masterpiece that would eventually be the one that started it all for João Gilberto, the song that would change forever Brazil's musical landscape. Its dazzling arrangement apart, the Os Cariocas version is noteable for the appearance of Gilberto himself on guitar. Because their guitarist Badeco couldn t duplicate the bossa beat, João volunteered to sit in at the recording and play anonymously. For Os Cariocas, the bossa nova phase was their second one, lasting between 1957 and 1967, when the group was disbanded. Their first phase included two decades broadcasting for Radio Nacional do Rio de Janeiro, and their 1948 debuts "Nova Ilusão" and "Adeus América" (later rerecorded by João Gilberto and remaining one of his classics), on which they mock American musical institutions of the day.

Effervescent songbird Jane Weaver once again takes flight this Spring with this spellbinding collection of heartrending recordings. Having spent that past year residing under an apple tree on the outer limits of Greater Manchester putting the finishing touches to her new album immersed in the sounds of Linda Perhacs, Karen Dalton, Josephine Foster, These Trails and The Pink Fairies, the past few months have seen Jane travel over hill and over dale by special request to make a handful of rare live appearances across the UK and US alongside the likes of Voice Of The Seven Woods, Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Wendy Flower (Wendy & Bonnie), and most recently Josephine Foster.

Jane Weaver is a rare creature in the vanity-stricken world of female singers, and perhaps with a more generous roll of the dice we might all have heard of her. Serving her apprenticeship in the mid-nineties girl-guitar-pop outfit Kill Laura, Jane would go on to front Twisted Nerve's Misty Dixon and release her critically acclaimed solo mini-album, 'Like An Aspen Leaf', as well as recording a slew of singles with the help of Doves and an album for Mancunian music maverick Rob Gretton's Manchester Records which went unreleased following his death until Jane dusted down the tapes and released it through her very own Bird imprint.

'Cherlokalate' is the highly anticipated follow up to last years critically acclaimed debut album proper, 'Seven Day Smile' (2EGGS). Stripped back and laid bare, Jane's songwriting has moved from strength to strength and her dulcet tones have lost none of their potency. Jane's quiet riot continues unabashed as word spreads of her unassuming but bewitching talent.

Songs On Page One
Released 16/03/09. There are many standard-issue personae to which an aspiring rock star might be drawn, but one has always been cooler, darker and sexier than all the rest. It is that of the artist who single-mindedly pursues his creative muse while embracing the full panoply of self-destructive, decadent, badboy behaviour: heavy drinking, frequent drug use, committed womanising, a general fuck-you attitude to both public and media, a casual disregard for society's sacred cows and taboos, and a self-belief bordering on the messianic. For three turbulent decades Serge Gainsbourg heroically exemplified all of the above - and much more.

He wrote and directed four controversial movies, he published a scurrilous novel, his records were often denounced as obscene and he was perpetually embroiled in scandal, whether for turning up drunk on a TV show and offering to f**k fellow guest Whitney Houston, recording a reggae version of Le Marseillaise, burning a 500 franc banknote on prime-time TV, or making a decidedly queasy video with his 13-year-old daughter Charlotte to promote their single, Lemon Incest. Summarising his approach to life and art, he said: "Without controversy it would all be very boring" and "For me, provocation is oxygen."

The EL edition comprises his shockingly brilliant debut album, a live track from the same period transmitted on Radio France and fine versions of songs from this momentous first album recorded with commercial success by Parisian comtemporaries Michèle Arnaud and Jean Claude Pascal Serge Gainsbourg has been one of, if not the, major single international influence on British and American independent pop music; Portishead, Franz Ferdinand, Tricky, Jarvis Cocker, Beck, Arcade Fire, Placebo, PJ Harvey, Brett Anderson, Mick Harvey, Momus and Belle and Sebastian have all claimed him as mentor In France, Gainsbourg is nothing less than an institution. As Jane Birkin put it recently: "Now French culture is talked of as before and after Serge."

Brasilia - Sinfonia da Alvorada
In 1958, Juscelino Kubitschek, president of Brazil, asked Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes to compose a symphonic suite to be used at the opening ceremony of Brasilia, a city, designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer, that was being built in the state of Goias in the middle of the country and which would be inaugurated as the nation's new capital in April 1960. Niemeyer's vision was one of history's boldest, most dramatic architectural statements that for Brazil was meant to represent a new vision for the future. Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Moreas were two of the principle artchitects of bossa nova. The pair famously co-wrote The Girl From Ipanema and Jobim produced Joao Gilberto's original trilogy of albums that would be the stylistic blueprint for bossa.For the Sinfonia Alvorada, Tom Jobim is conducting the orchestra with the participation of Radames Gnattali (piano), Vinicius de Our edition features the original Oscar Niemeyer artwork. Sinfonia da Alvorada is accompanied by another major Braziilian orchestral work, The Forest of The Amazon, by Heitor Villa-Lobos. Conducted by the composer in his last year, 1959, with the great Brazilian soprano Bidu Sayão, the piece displays the whole range of Villa-Lobos's style, brilliantly evoking the sounds and colours of the jungle with musical.

Working Nights 2CD
Working Week were formed within the vanguard of London’s jazz-dance scene of the early 1980s.
The collective revolved around Simon Booth and esteemed jazz musician Larry Stabbins (both previously with Rough Trade act Weekend), and singer Julie Roberts.
Their debut single ‘Venceremos (We Will Win)’ boasted Tracey Thorn and Robert Wyatt on vocals and reached the Top 75. Julie Tippetts (nee Driscoll) sang on the brooding follow-up ‘Storm Of Light’.
Debut album WORKING NIGHTS was one of the cult favourites of 1985, peaking at No. 23 on the charts and spawning several more singles.
WORKING NIGHTS has long been out-of-print and impossible to find on CD. This deluxe reissue finally introduces many of their non-album tracks and remixes to the digital format, including the bonus 12” ‘Stella Marina’ with a rap from Jalal of The Last Poets.
Also includes two previously unissued live tracks.
