Feb 2 2011, 5:11 di Quartertonality(Originally posted on my blog: http://quartertonality.com/2011/02/01/album-review-the-insane-warrior-we-are-the-doorways/)
Music has the ability to take on a character of its own and often the musicians that are creating it feel that they are a different person while in the studio. This much is quite true for hip-hop producer RJD2 whose instrumental album “We Are The Doorways” was released under the moniker The Insane Warrior.
According to an entry on his blog he wants us to think of The Insane Warrior as “a completely different dude”. He even goes as far as imagining that he wanted, at one point, to create different names for the artists that are responsible for creating all of the material that he himself is releasing. This makes sense; if an album is written, performed and produced all by the same guy, but the music changes wildly from one album to the next why not change the name of the artist accordingly? The binding element is that they will all be released, as “We Are The Doorways” is, as an RJD2 production. …

Giu 4 2010, 19:20 di sandrob57Time to look back at my top albums from spring 2010.
1) Engineers - Engineers
Engineers self-titled debut is every bit as good as their second and slightly more palatable release Three Fact Fader. It's a much calmer album without as much electronics and production work, but it has a brilliant level of artistry contained within that simplicity. Tracks like Waved On, New Horizons, Forgiveness and Come In Out Of The Rain are incredible, dreamy masterpieces I'll be listening to for years to come.
2) Not for Want of Trying - Maybeshewill
This is an album you have to let play in its entirety; it's not about specific tracks but more about the album as a whole. It flows well, it maintains a consistent vibe, and the song quality never dips throughout the entire thing. My favorite section is the passage between "Seraphim & Cherubim", "The Paris Hilton Sex Tape", "I'm In Awe, Amadeus" and "We Called For An Ambulance But A Fire Engine Came". …
Mag 6 2008, 18:48 di germaniusThe music of Modern Jazz Quartet sounds not like a mix of classic and jazz genres. It sounds like independent and fully-harmonic unique style, ubelievable nice and beautiful, like a thin line between two musical genres.
The Complete Modern Jazz Quartet Prestige & Pablo Recordings
It is also very nice to listen Jacques Loussier Trio and The Classical Jazz Quartet.
"It became harder and harder to determine, where is jazz begins and where is it ends... or even to understand where is the boundary line between classical music and jazz passing."

Modern Jazz Quartet :: Прощай, Модерн Джаз Квартет
В 1974-м году "Modern Jazz Quartet" дал свой последний концерт. О том, что квартет распадётся, ходили слухи ещё с конца 50-х годов. Особенно часто на это намекал вибрафонист Milt Jackson, которому было тесно в рамках исполняемой музыки и который хотел идти своим путём. Однако пианист и лидер квартета John Lewis, несмотря на разногласия, сумел удерживать эту четвёрку вместе в течение 23 лет, начиная с 1951 года.
"Модерн Джаз Квартет" представляет собой комбо, которое в истории джазовой музыки просуществовало дольше прочих. Это рекорд, который можно оценить лишь помня о том, что все остальные выдающиеся группы, которые каким-то образом повлияли на развитие джаза, которые внесли в неё какие-то изменения, обычно выдерживали всего нескольких лет: например, "Хот Файв" Луи Армстронга (Louis Armstrong, Louis Armstrong and His Hot Five) - только два года…

Gen 1 2007, 20:04 di Demon_gooSo, for my personal history I decided to overview my top artists. Last year I've been listening to a lot of new music, indeed as I did last three years :)
1. Duke Ellington - surprisingly, old swing proved to be amazing and not boring music. However, Duke became my favorite because of his huge discography, actually I'm not such a hysterical fan of Ellington.
2. Tom Waits - this old man is true discovery. No other music I've encountered like Waits. His bluesy & jazzy tunes, his "smocky" vocals, all it creates some special mood. Often, when I don't know what I want to listen to, I play some of Waits.
3. Гражданская Оборона - last time I've been in this russian "punk" when I was 16. Actually music of this russian band can be tagged something like "garage punk/rock with social lyrics". Last year I've come across the discography in local network. I thought that after decade of I've been listening to stuff I could not get into it again. …
