Bauhaus - Burning From The Inside (1983/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Bauhaus
Title: Burning From The Inside
Genre: Rock, Alternative Rock, Goth Rock, Post Punk

If The Sky's Gone Out felt like a collection of various recordings, Burning from the Inside really was, due in large part to outside events -- Murphy had fallen victim to a life-threatening illness, so the rest of the band began recording without him, which more than anything else foreshadowed both Bauhaus' breakup and the trio's future work as Love and Rockets. As a result, two songs ended up on the album, the piano-led cinematic moodiness of "Who Killed Mr. Moonlight" and the sweet acoustic drive of "Slice of Life," with David J and Ash on lead vocals respectively. Furthermore, more songs from the earliest days of the band were dug up to provide material, the most notable and successful being the dub-inflected, heavily dramatic "She's in Parties," using filmmaking as a metaphor for romance and life, with Murphy's excellent lead balanced against a near-whispering chorus from the other two singers. The end result of all this was an album that was good in spots but not as strong throughout as it could be, while betraying the other performing and writing strains that would soon cause the band to call it a day. As before, though, when the band members were on, they were on with a vengeance, such as the medieval folk dance "King Volcano" and the starkly beautiful "Kingdom's Coming." The ten-minute title track takes a good idea and stretches it out a little too long, but the concluding track "Hope" follows it with a life-affirming, inspirational vibe that serves as much as a farewell for Bauhaus' audience as anything else. While imperfect, Burning from the Inside has much more to recommend it than many other albums. --AllMusic Review by Ned Raggett

Grete Skarpeid feat. Aruan Ortiz - My Songs (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Grete Skarpeid feat. Aruán Ortiz
Title: My Songs
Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz
Label: © Neuklang | Bauer Studios GmbH
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit

Duration: 01:06:05
Recorded at Samurai Hotel Recording Studios by David Stoller on 13 to 16 november 2014. Mastered april 2015, at Blackler Mastering by Kevin Blackler.

This album is the result of a chance meeting between jazz pianist Aruan Ortiz an myself. He was playing in my home town of Voss, Norway, together with the Don Byron quartet. During a conversation he asked me if I sang? I replied: «A little bit», and asked if he would like to hear one of my own songs written that same day. He was kind enough to listen, and with inspiring words he encouraged me to follow my ideas and continue to write.
He invited me to join him in New York for a recording session, and I had the wonderful experience of working alongside great musicians who played my music so beautifully. Although this has been my first studio recording, under Aruans professional guidance, together with his arrangements and production, the music has become alive, playful and energetic and at the same time it has broadened the complexity of its harmony and rhythms.
Although these songs and lyrics has a personal background and express own experiences, moods and emotions, my hope is that the listener can relate to the universal expressions of love, loss and life. Enjoy!

Chris Hinze Combination - Mission Suite (1973/2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88,2kHz

Artist: Chris Hinze Combination
Title: Mission Suite
Genre: Jazz, Fusion, Jazz Rock, Jazz Funk
Label: © MPS - Musik Produktion Schwarzwald | Edel Germany GmbH
Release Date: 1973/2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit
Duration: 43:39
Recorded: Cornett Studio Köln

Endowed with formidable classical and jazz chops, Dutch flutist Chris Hinze has played with Charlie Mariano, Cecil Taylor, and the Brecker Brothers. The lauded Chris Hinze Combination includes two jazz stalwarts, bassist John Lee and drummer Gerry Brown; both credit work with the “who’s who” of the jazz and pop world. Add vocals, electric keyboard, guitar, and percussion, and you have a tasty concoction of jazz and funk, with a pinch of pop and the classics for flavoring. Di-da-du-la-da is a musical tryptic of furious fusion, rhapsodic lyricism, and fast and funky bass-and-drums-led improvisation. Mission Suite is all about modal interplay, including a sizzlingly vocal flute, and a haunting bowed bass-vocal duet. Deliverance highlights Hinze’s passionate, throaty flute solo, the use of space, open tempos, and the emotional gestalt of singer Henny Vonk. The Ballad has an archaic sylvan quality, and Bamboo Funk starts off with a Baroque-tinged melody before it gets down to delivering what the title implies – Chris at his funky best on bamboo flute. An outstanding fusion venture by one of jazz’s premier flutists.
