Abbey Lincoln - A Turtle's Dream



A TURTLE'S DREAM was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Performance.
This release continued Abbey Lincoln's '90s resurgence. As with her preceding Verve releases, A TURTLE'S DREAM features notable guest musicians (including Pat Metheny, Kenny Baron, and Lucky Peterson), all of whom add grace to the proceedings. Her core backing trio comprises Rodney Kendrick on piano, Charlie Haden on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. The set features primarily her originals, along with a pair of covers, including Eben Ahbez's "Nature Boy." The opening song, "Throw It Away," has a melancholy resonance that is utterly inviting as Lincoln pours herself into the lyrics with deep passion and subtle dramatics. The addition of a string section on a couple of numbers--especially "Down Here Below"--makes for some elegant blues.
Recorded at Clinton Recording Studio, New York on May 28, August 29, and November 7 & 8, 1994.

Entertainment Weekly (6/16/95, p.61) - "Lincoln, now in her 60s, is finally making records that capture her capabilities as a jazz singer-songwriter. Unhurried, sagacious, and original, she makes wise use of her limited vocal range..." - Rating: A-
Down Beat (8/95, p.44) - 4 Stars - Very Good - "Lincoln has made the most of her straightforward style, maturing into a worldly wise diva....Her bittersweet singing is lovelier than ever, set off by accompaniment so luscious and creamy that Lincoln herself is nearly overshadowed..."
Vibe (9/95, p.168) - "...at least she's been spared the pain of peaking early. Haunting and full of deceptive melodies....Her austere, Tao-inspired lyrics...positively glow..."
Village Voice (1/16/96) - Ranked #13 in the Village Voice's Best Jazz Discs of '95 - "...For more than half a century, a jazz diva was...a singer crying for her man. Lincoln has turned that around--never with greater emotional resolve than on this sublime album..."
New York Times (Publisher) (1/6/96, p.C16) - Included on Stephen Holden's and Peter Watrous' list of the Top 10 Albums of `95 - "The 65-year-old jazz singer and stylistic heir to Billie Holiday writes roomy, pop-jazz ballads whose pained wisdom matches a voice that conveys the accumulated lessons of a difficult but rewarding life..."

ΔΟΜΝΑ ΣΑΜΙΟΥ - ΤΑ ΑΠΟΚΡΙΑΤΙΚΑ

24 αθυρόστομα τραγούδια της Αποκριάς.
Η πιο διάσημη έκδοση του Συλλόγου. Τα «ανίερα-ιερά» τραγούδια της Αποκριάς με την ιερή τους αθυροστομία ετάραξαν τα νερά των σεμνότυφων καπηλευτών της παράδοσης. Ο διπλός δίσκος με τα είκοσι τέσσερα κομμάτια συνοδεύεται από εκτενή κείμενα που αναλύουν το παγανιστικό τελετουργικό πλαίσιο εντός του οποίου λέγονται τα τραγούδια, τραγούδια συνδεδεμένα με συγκεκριμένη εποχή του κοσμικού χρόνου και με ρόλο ιερό κατά τις αντιλήψεις των ανθρώπων της παραδοσιακής αγροτικής κοινωνίας. Παράλληλη έκδοση σε LP και CD.

Εισαγωγικό σημείωμα
Το βέβηλο και το άσεμνο είναι μια πτυχή του λαϊκού μας πολιτισμού που ελάχιστα έχει ανιχνευθεί και μελετηθεί, μια που "επί δεκαετίες, ίσως και αιώνες -όπως παρατηρεί ο καθηγητής Μ. Μερακλής- η υποκριτικά επίπεδη αστική ηθική" και σεμνοτυφία των διανοούμενων συλλογέων την αποσιώπησε και την αγνόησε, παραποιώντας την αλήθεια κάποιων συγκεκριμένων πολιτισμικών φαινομένων. Στην κάλυψη αυτού του κενού θέλει να συμβάλει ο Σύλ…

DIRE STRAITS BROTHERS IN ARMS

Artist: Dire Straits Album: Brothers In Arms (20th Anniversary Edition) Label: Warner Bros. Records Catalogue #: 49377-2 Format: MP3@320 kbps Sound Quality: HIGH Size: 124,13 MB Type: Album Country: USA Release Date: 2005 Original Release Date: 1985 Language: English Time: 55:13 Genre: Pop/Rock Styles: Classic Rock, Rock & Roll, Album Rock, Contemporary Pop/Rock
Album Review: Brothers in Arms is the fifth studio album by the British rock band Dire Straits, released in 1985. The first half of the album is a development of their unique brand of arena rock which had evolved in their music since the 1980 album Making Movies, while the second half consists of more folk-influenced material. The whole album maintains the original Dire Straits' bluesy and laid back guitar-based sound whilst retaining a more lavish and bombastic production and overall sound. It is the band's best-selling album, and one of the top 10 best-selling albums in UK music history.
