A door to a lost world
Dig This Way Records has captured this unique sound on "Best of Jicco Funk Volume 1", a door to a world of music that is high grade in quality, diverse, and open to interpretation even if the selected tracks are all from the same record label. One's questions might include: When did they start? Why did they start? Who was behind it? Where did the artists come from? Listen and learn...
Testify with a soul groove
The Staples Jr. Singers were part of a vanguard of soul gospel artists in the 1970s that broke from tradition to testify with the groove. When they wrote these songs they had one question on their minds: "When Do We Get Paid?“ It was their anthem at a time in their career when they weren’t sure they were being recognised for their talent, and certainly not compensated.
A classical orchestration of a classic
Former lead singer of the rock group "Yes" shares the stage with the 112-member Cleveland Contemporary Youth Orchestra and 60-member student chorus in a mesmerizing performance that exudes joy and energy. In this once-in-a-lifetime and inspiring performance, Jon Anderson and the youth orchestra play songs by "Yes" and "Jon & Vangelis". Shot Live in Cleveland at the famed Severance Hall Auditorium.
Elegant and Soulful
In a day and age where too much R&B is nothing but about the grind, the Austria-based duo Elis Noa comes with a refreshing release. Art being an expression of thoughts and feelings that we would argue should go further than knee-deep, this album delivers on that. Romantic, atmospheric, authentic, and well-crafted. Polished but not glossy. Just a few keywords to get your heart and mind going.
Unique harmonies and forms
SPRING - the debut album from the Artur Tuźnik Sextet - takes listeners on an engaging, reflective journey through sounds, sensations and seasons in a program featuring new music that pays homage to the bandleader and composer’s greatest inspirations. The musical voices of the carefully chosen contributing instrumentalists bring nine original tunes to life in a production that’s intimate, spiritual, and offers something for audiences of all backgrounds.
To abolish illiteracy and maintain a dignified life
The world is adrift in the tides of hunger and desolation. It isn't easy to think about education, or anything else when your children cannot eat. And yet, the sharp attack on education during this past decade forces us to consider the future that young people will inherit.
