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.

What if computers finally began getting more Africa in them? What if folk artists started emerging who sounded more post-modern than Cornelius or Pole? What would Click Folk or Glitch Folk sound like? What would Alan Lomax have said if, in 1965, the Newport Folk Festival had been invaded by boffins and geeks playing modular Moogs? What if you could hear, today, the Country Music of the year 2049? What about the Japanese country music of 2049? What would that sound like? What if electronics had appeared in 18th Century Scotland just at the moment of the Highland Clearances? How many mountains can you fit on a Minidisc? It's what Raymond Scott, Bruce Haack or Gary Numan might have sounded like if they'd jammed their way through the back catalogue of Steeleye Span. It's Shakespeare rendered in Flash 5 by a superlucid hyperactive Japanese geek. It's those prolific medieval songwriters Trad. and Anon. finding the missing link between unicorns and Unix. It's preposterous, provocative and prescient

The View from the Edge
Released 18/05/09. The View from the Edge is about the rolke of percussion in modern music and is a sequel to el's previous Varese edition, The Complete Works of Edgard Varese Volume 1 (ACMEM125CD). An important restoration of the composer's earliest recordings, the edition was greeted by great critical enthusiasm and sold especially healthily on export.

Varese also has a strong base in America, mostly by virtue of the association with Frank Zappa, who for years championed the work of this genius who today is regarded now as "The Father Of Electronic Music”; a man that has been described as the Leonardo da Vinci of modern music

‘Arcana’ and ‘Ionisation’ are the composer's key works; two of the most important of the twentieth century. Leonard Bernstein's historic seventeen minute Arcana with The New York Philharmonic is amongst the rarest Varese recordings The American Percussion Society's vigorous recording of ‘Ionisation’ has been inexplicably out of print for five decades

The Oliver Messiaen pieces are his first official recordings ever, dating from 1946 & 1947, and orginally released on 78 by Pathe. Both are beautifully performed by a young Yvonne Loriod.

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.

Playtime / Blues Caravan
For all the power and limitless technique for which he is renowned, Buddy Rich was an enormously intelligent musician who played with finesse, taste and no little humour. His often breath-taking solos were but one aspect of his talent; he was equally revered as an accompanist injecting both swing and impetus while unselfishly allowing the soloists plenty of room to state their respective cases.
These 1961 small-group sessions recorded in Chicago and New York are among the most satisfying and sought-after of the whole Buddy Rich oeuvre, featuring soloists Sam Most on flute and the vibes of twenty-one year old Mike Mainieri, who also provided most of the charts.
In New York, this supremely inventive group is augmented by Swedish trumpeter Rolf Ericson and again play with precision and energy.
Rich particularly admired this recordings' sound quality and with good reason. The Blues Caravan session was produced by the legendary Creed Taylor.
