Turning Point - John Coltrane

Turning Point
Over the all too brief 40 years of his life, John Coltrane had a profound and far-reaching effect on the world of jazz and beyond. Yet acclaimed as he already was after spells as a sideman with giants such as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk, it was only in 1957 that his musical vision began to truly find focus. The "spiritual awakening" of which he spoke prompted him to make wholesale changes in his lifestyle. Out, went the bad habits that had made many fear for his life, to be replaced by an all-consuming quest to make music that transcended national and cultural boundaries, bringing both player and listener to a state of connectedness with God.

This edition illustrates that landmark year with selections from four important sessions; collaborations and first dates as leader with Tadd Dameron, Kenny Burrell, Tommy Flanagan and Red Garland. The listener will find abundant evidence of one of jazz’s undisputed greats demonstrating total mastery of the music that succoured him through his early years - blues, swing, bebop - and already beginning to hunger for fresh challenges. Coltrane’s eclectic attitudes, encouraged by his friendship with Ravi Shankar, would soon inspire The Byrds (‘Eight Miles High’), Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, The Doors, Tom Verlaine, The Stooges.

What’s Bootsy Doin?
Bootsy Collins. As a bassist, singer and songwriter, he has long since passed into legend. A man who made his name by performing with the indomitable JamesBrown in the early 1970s, before becoming part of the immortal Parliament and Funkadelic later the same decade. He’s a rock star in every sense. His sense of humour and driving way of playing was matched by a flamboyant sense of dress.His 1988 What sBootsy Doin ? album saw him back in the groove with old P-Funk buddies George Clinton, Bernie Worrall, Fred Wesley and Gary 'Mudbone' Cooper. After a recording absence of six years, Collins slips right into gear, working with a huge ensemble that of course featured some of his own alter egos. It appeared that little had changed for the man, In that everything that had happened in the funk world while he'd been in semiretirement was ignored, as Collins set out to prove his weird approach to mixing funk, rock and pop was still as potent as ever.The bizarre clash of styles that had made Collins such a style icon in the previous decade is still obvious, and at its best 'What’s Bootsy Doin'?' is just glorious, Check out 'Party On Plastic' and 'Love Song' this is where the man scores highly and often, never standing still long enough for you to second guess him.

T.A.P.O.A.F.O.M
T.A.P.O.A.F.O.M. , or The Awesome Power Of A Fully Operational Mothership to give the album its full title, was released in 1996, at a time when the acid house-inspired dance music craze had swept across the UK and attention was turning to the guitar driven Britpop bands and then Prime Minister Tony Blair ‘s hokey creation Cool Britannia was grabbing the headlines. And yet with its ferociously awesome funk grooves, it evoked memories of a time at least twenty years previous, when Clinton’s musical gangsFunkadelic and Parliament held sway over popular music. T.A.P.O.A.F.O.M. has largely been viewed as a reunion album of the Funkadelic/Parliament era, featuring as it does, input from former members including Collins, Maceo Parker, Bernie Worrell, Junie Morrison and Fred Wesley. As you would no doubt agree, it’s a joy to hear. Our Price: £9.95

Folktronic
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

Peace in the Heart of the City
This is a great title and describes accurately the contents of the album. It is very relaxing, peaceful, heartful, instrumental piano music. Morgan Fisher has had a fascinating career. Was originally the keyboard player in Love Affair who had a No 1 hit with "Everlasting Love" when he was 16 years old. Went on to join Mott The Hoople who had several top ten hits in the early to mid 70's. In 1978 he was one of the first musicians to form his own label, Pipe Music, recording the groundbreaking "Miniatures" album. In 1981 he played keyboards with Queen on their world tour. Since 1985 he has lived in Tokyo and has been very successful there writing music for TV commercials and film soundtracks. During this time he has recorded 12 albums and has built up a strong following in that country. This CD can be racked in both "New Age" sections and under his name "Morgan Fisher" as a known artist.
