Tony Williams Trio - Young at Heart (1997/1999) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Artist: Tony Williams Trio
Title: Young at Heart
Genre: Jazz, Fusion, Hard Bop, Post-Bop
Label: © Columbia Records | Sony Music Japan (SRGS 4516)
Release Date: 1997/1999
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz
Source: ISO SACD
Duration: 01:09:13
Recorded at Sony Music Shinanomachi Studio in Tokyo, Japan on September 24 and 25, 1996.

OUNG AT HEART is Tony Williams' final recording prior to his death in 1997. YOUNG AT HEART is a firm exclamation point on the career of master drummer Tony Williams. Recorded just a few months before his untimely death, this disc is a treasure that no one who has followed Williams' development from 17-year-old Miles Davis band phenom to legendary composer and bandleader should be without. In a rare trio setting with longtime sidemen Mulgrew Miller (piano) and Ira Coleman (bass) Williams displays the powerful chops, beautiful finesse and relentless drive that defines his unmistakable style. The majority of this disc is made up of standards; an unusual turn for Williams, who had become such a highly respected composer in his later life. We are treated to a grand display, however, as the trio masterfully energizes classics like "On Green Dolphin Street," "You And The Night And The Music" and Bobby Timmons' "This Here." Williams, using both brushes and sticks, is in top form as he gravitates from colorful support to thundering bombast to stimulating melodic invention. Of special note, the lighter tunes including "The Fool On The Hill," "Body And Soul" and the title track exhibit a sensitive side of Williams drumming that was often overlooked.

The Decemberists - What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44.1kHz

Artist: The Decemberists
Title: What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World
Genre: Rock, Alternative, Indie Rock, Indie Folk
Label: © Capitol Records
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 44,1kHz/24bit

Duration: 53:03
Recorded: 2014

The Decemberists belatedly embraced their indie pop sensibilities (or at very least their fondness for R.E.M.) on 2011's The King Is Dead, and were rewarded with a number one chart placing and the group's greatest commercial success to date, leading some to wonder if Colin Meloy and his bandmates were going to go for more hooks or return to the more ornate sound of their earlier work now that they had a large audience waiting for the follow-up. As it turns out, 2014's What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World finds the Decemberists managing to have it both ways; if anything, many of these songs are brighter and hookier than those on The King Is Dead, but if this is pop, it's pop that's keenly intelligent, melodically adventurous, obsessively literate, and perfectly willing to explore sadness and disappointment rather than just the upbeat moods that are expected to accompany catchy melodies. The melodies on "Lake Song" and "Till the Water Is All Long Gone" may be more streamlined than you'd hear on Picaresque or The Crane Wife, but the arrangements are richly detailed, playing on the dynamics of Chris Funk's guitars, Jenny Conlee's keyboards and accordions, and John Moen's percussion, and the group takes much pleasure in the dour beauty of its melodies. The band also embraces its upbeat side on this album with numbers like "The Wrong Year" and "Philomena" (the latter pondering teenage lust as only the Decemberists can), and the opening track, "The Singer Addresses His Audience," is a witty but cutting meditation on the notion of fame, its impact on the culture, and where the Decemberists fit into the puzzle in the wake of hit records and appearances on Parks & Recreation. There's still more than enough folk in the Decemberists' approach to make them stand apart from their peers on the upper reaches of the pop charts, and the intuitive smarts of their stylistic vision are still front and center, but What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World is an album where the creative sprawl is more a matter of how this divergent selection of melodies and moods interacts, rather than how many elements can be folded into one song; this is very clearly the Decemberists, but with a new kind of focus in their songs and arrangements that makes it clear this album's sound is a result of creative evolution, not an offering to their newer, larger audience, and it's a sweet and sour wonder that rewards repeated listening. --Mark Deming

Recorded: 1970

Steppenwolf 7 is an album by the band Steppenwolf, released in 1970, and their fifth studio recording for Dunhill Records. It is the first Steppenwolf album with new bass player George Biondo. While the album featured Steppenwolf's trademark rock and roll sounds, none of the songs were able to make the Top 40. The album featured a cover of Hoyt Axton's "Snowblind Friend", their second cover of one of his anti-drug songs (the first being "The Pusher"). Along with "Who Needs Ya", it was one of two singles from the album which made the charts but fell short of the Top 40. The album track "Renegade" is autobiographical for lead vocalist John Kay, recounting his flight with his mother from East to West Germany in 1948.

Steppenwolf - For Ladies Only (1971/2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Steppenwolf
Title: For Ladies Only
Genre: Rock, Blues Rock, Acid Rock, Hard Rock, Psychedelic, Garage, Rock & Roll
Label: © Geffen Records | Univercal Music GmbH
Release Date: 1971/2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit

Duration: 00:45:32
Recorded: November 24, 1970 - May 30, 1971 at American Recording Studios

For Ladies Only is the sixth studio album by Steppenwolf, released in 1971. It is a political concept album mainly about feminism but with several more conventional songs about romance as well, both unusual themes for Steppenwolf. Some critics saw the album as sexist, citing the lyrics of the songs and a photo of a car shaped like a penis alongside the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the gatefold. The album saw the band hinting toward the progressive rock movement that was popular at the time with more complex arrangements and sophisticated keyboard playing, particularly on the title track. Like their previous album, it was accompanied by two minor hit singles which fell just short of the Top 40.

Steppenwolf - At Your Birthday Party (1969/2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Label: © Geffen Records | Univercal Music GmbH
Release Date: 1969/2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit

Duration: 00:41:06
Recorded: December 1968 - February 1969

At Your Birthday Party is the third studio album by Steppenwolf, released in 1969 (see 1969 in music) on the label ABC Dunhill Records. It was the first Steppenwolf album to feature bass player Nick St. Nicholas. Although it was less critically acclaimed than their successful first two albums, Steppenwolf and The Second, it contains a few well-known hits, such as "It's Never Too Late" and "Jupiter's Child", as well as "Rock Me," which had been featured in the 1968 film Candy. Although the band would be very successful in the early 1970s, At Your Birthday Party was to be their last top ten album and features their last top ten single. The album showcases Steppenwolf coming out of, but not yet completely abandoning, the psychedelia of Steppenwolf the Second and stepping into the distinctive hard rock of their later releases.

When three teenaged brothers and their cousin rebelled against their strict, religious Southern upbringing to form Kings of Leon, their humble backstory garnered almost as much attention as their music. Many questioned if they were really related and if rumors of their father being a Pentecostal preacher were true. Since then, the band has achieved worldwide, Grammy® Award-winning success and Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon lies to rest the mystery and myths as it details the rise to fame from their bible belt beginnings.
The documentary kicks off at the annual Followill family reunion in the back woods of Talihina, OK, where the boys return to their roots and unwind with their family. First-time director and Followill friend Stephen C. Mitchell weaves personal home videos, unedited interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s journey from their small-town beginnings — spent in poverty and touring the circuit with their father, a Pentecostal evangelist minister, and their devout mother — to living the rock star dream.

Il est à nouveau produit par Jon Kelly mais cette fois-ci, Nolwenn participe à la conception de neuf chansons. Deux mois après sa sortie, l’album est certifié triple disque de platine (300 000 ventes), Nolwenn recevant la récompense lors des NRJ Music Awards. Ce succès auprès du public se confirme par le prix de l’album RTL de l’année. En mai 2013, Nolwenn entame une tournée (Ô Tour de l’Eau) d’un an et 70 dates, en France, en Suisse, et en Belgique. Elle passe notamment par les festivals d’été dont l’Armada de Rouen, le Festival interceltique de Lorient, ainsi que les théâtres et Zéniths, l’Olympia et le Cirque Royal de Bruxelles.
