Operatic Intermezzi - Philharmonia Orchestra, Herbert von Karajan (2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Various
Artist: Philharmonia Orchestra, Herbert von Karajan
Title: Operatic Intermezzi
Genre: Classical
Label: © Warner Classics
Release Date: 2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 00:51:18
Recorded: 1959 at Kingsway Hall, London


The Karajan Official Remastered Edition comprises 13 box sets containing official remasterings of the finest recordings the Austrian conductor made for EMI between 1946 and 1984, and which are now a jewel of the Warner Classics catalogue.
For many, Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989) – hailed early in his career as ‘Das Wunder Karajan’ (The Karajan Miracle) and known in the early 1960s as ‘the music director of Europe’ – remains the ultimate embodiment of the maestro. The release of the Karajan Official Remastered Edition over the first half of 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the conductor’s death in July 1989 at the age of 81.
He was closely associated with EMI for the majority of his recording career (specifically from 1946 to 1960 and then again from 1969 to 1984). EMI’s legendary producer Walter Legge sought him out in Vienna just after World War II and the long relationship that ensued embraced recordings with the Vienna Philharmonic, the Philharmonia (the orchestra founded by Legge), the Berlin Philharmonic (of which Karajan became ‘conductor for life’ in 1955), the forces of La Scala, Milan, and the Orchestre de Paris.
The Karajan Official Remastered Edition will feature primarily symphonic and choral music. The entire edition will comprise recordings remastered from the original sources in 24-bit/96kHz at Abbey Road Studios, the world’s most renowned recording studio.

One For All - The Third Decade (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: One For All
Title: The Third Decade
Genre: Jazz, Hard Bop, Straight-Ahead/Mainstream Jazz
Label: © Smoke Sessions Records
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:06:00
Recorded: October 20, 2015 at Sear Sound, Studio C, New York City

At a time when jazz bandleaders from across the musical and generational spectrums regularly lament the difficulty of keeping a band together, it’s all the more remarkable that a supergroup like One For All has stuck it out for twenty years. But this impeccably swinging sextet, made up of some of the most in-demand players in modern jazz, is not just celebrating past achievements but charging forward into the future. Their new recording, The Third Decade, marks the dawn of the band’s next chapter.
Their 16th release, The Third Decade, is its first in five years and the first in its history to feature original compositions by all six members. The Third Decade, due out June 3 via Smoke Sessions Records, brings together once again tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, trumpeter Jim Rotondi, trombonist Steve Davis, pianist David Hazeltine, bassist John Webber, and drummer Joe Farnsworth. As always, the fiery and soulful musicianship is only matched by the warmth and spirit that results from a lifetime of musical friendships.

Per Norgard - Symphonies Nos. 2 & 6 - Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, John Storgards (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88,2kHz

Сomposer: Per Nørgård (b.1932)
Artist: Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, John Storgårds
Title: Nørgård - Symphonies Nos. 2 & 6
Genre: Classical
Label: © Dacapo Records
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit
Source: www.dacapo-records.dk
Duration: 00:54:22
Recorded: Oslo Konserthus on 25-28 May 2015 (No. 6); at Oslo Opera House, the orchestra rehearsal room, on 1-5 June 2015 (No. 2)


“I feel each of my symphonies is a whole continent in itself,” the Danish composer Per Nørgård (b. 1932) has said. His music stems from an insatiable urge to explore the phe no mena of the world and the possibilities of music, and his eight symphonies stand as milestones along the course of six decades. This recording with the Oslo Philharmonic conducted by John Storgårds presents Per Nørgård’s Second Symphony, in which the composer unfolds his famous ‘infinity principle’ euphorically and almost psychedelically, and his Sixth Symphony, in which the mature composer proves more exploratory and playful than ever.

Norah Jones - Little Broken Hearts (2012) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Artist: Norah Jones
Title: Little Broken Hearts
Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz, Alternative/Indie Rock, Singer/Songwriter
Label: © Blue Note Records/Analogue Productions
Release Date: 2012
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz
Source: AcousticSounds
Duration: 00:45:03
Recorded: 2011, Mondo Studio, Electro Vox Studios, Los Angeles, California; Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio.

albums Come Away With Me, Feels Like Home, Not Too Late, The Fall and Little Broken Hearts. Each album is also featured in exclusive LP and SACD box sets that include Norah’s Covers album!
Norah Jones’ Little Broken Hearts was created in collaboration with producer Brian "Danger Mouse" Burton, best known as the producing ace for Gnarls Barkley with singer Cee Lo Green. Jones and Danger Mouse wrote all of the material for the album together at the producer’s studio in Los Angeles, and the duo performed all of the instruments themselves. This is their second time working together — Jones previously appeared as a vocalist on Rome, Danger Mouse’s collaboration with Italian composer Daniele Luppi. Though Little Broken Hearts is the result of a partnership between Jones and Danger Mouse, the record will be credited only to her.
The album’s sound ranges from experimental chamber serenades to stark, electronic-embellished confessions. "It’s obviously very different than anything Norah’s ever done," Burton says. "I don’t know what people will think — I hope they like it, and she doesn’t lose a bunch of fans."
"I’d never gone in with nothing and wrote songs from scratch, and I’d never played bass before on a record," Jones told Rolling Stone. "I was out of my comfort zone — but I was comfortable because we’re friends."
Adds Burton, "The best thing was having just the two of us on those first sessions, not a whole band. Norah had as many, if not more, great ideas than I did."
One of the boldest departures is "Take It Back," which features fuzzed-out guitars and spooky, distorted vocals. "I never knew how to get weird sounds," Jones says. "It was all about finding a balance between those effects and making sure my voice was clear and sounded like me."
In its own quiet way, Little Broken Hearts hews closer to heartbreak classics like Marvin Gaye’s Here, My Dear than to anything in Jones’ back catalog, Rolling Stone reports, "This time, I’ve been way less concerned with self-editing," Jones says. "I’m not sad, but there’s a lot of hurt in there. And it felt great to say what I felt and put it down on tape. Doing that made me so happy! This album is all about saying things that needed to be said."

Norah Jones - Feels Like Home (2004/2012) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Artist: Norah Jones
Title: Feels Like Home
Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz, Torch Songs, Jazz Blues
Label: © Blue Note Records/Analogue Productions XAPP043D64
Release Date: 2004/2012
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Duration: 00:46:15
Recorded: 2003-2004, Allaire Studios, Avatar Studios, Sear Sound, Sorcerer Sound. Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the original analog master tapes!


Part of Analogue Productions’ reissue of the Norah Jones’ solo catalog, featuring the individual albums Come Away With Me, Feels Like Home, Not Too Late, The Fall and Little Broken Hearts. Each album is also featured in exclusive LP and SACD box sets that include Norah’s Covers album!
Norah Jones took the world (and the Grammys) by storm with her debut album Come Away With Me. Now, she’s back for one of the most-anticipated follow-ups in recent memory. On Feels Like Home, Jones again teams with producer Arif Mardin, engineer Jay Newland and her close-knit touring band. And her pop, jazz, and country-tinged sound has never been richer.
On Feels Like Home, Jones has written several new songs, gathered a few more from her bandmates and also covered Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits, Kathleen Brennan and Duke Ellington. Jones plays piano, Wurlitzer electric piano and pump organ and features her stripped-down core group of guitar, background vocals, bass and drums. We needn’t describe Jones’ singing. Everyone recognizes it by now. The arrangements aren’t quite as mellow as Come Away With Me, but the music still centers on country, pop and jazz colors.
“I’m glad that people liked the last album,” Jones said. “It was where I was at the time, musically. This is where I am now. That’s what a recording is for me, like a snapshot. We had so much fun making this record.”

Norah Jones - Covers (2012) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Artist: Norah Jones
Title: Covers
Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz, Torch Songs, Jazz Blues
Label: © Blue Note Records/Analogue Productions
Release Date: 2012
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz
Source: AcousticSounds
Duration: 00:36:29
Recorded: 2001-2009; Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio. DSD file created by Gus Skinas from the Analogue Productions SACD cutting masters.


Released exclusively to Target stores in America in January 2013 (it had previously shown up in other territories, either as a bonus disc as part of a career-encompassing box set or as a separate release in Japan), Covers rounds up stray covers Norah Jones has released over the years, adding a couple of unreleased cuts in the process. This runs the gamut from classic country covers to Wilco, taking detours for Tom Waits and Horace Silver along the way (the latter is an especially appealing left turn). Nothing here is especially surprising, either in execution or selection, partially because many of these versions date from earlier in her career, appearing as B-sides and bonus tracks for various editions of Come Away with Me, Feels Like Home, and The Fall. Jones has gotten looser and more adventurous as the years passed, a shift that's evident when these perfectly pleasant covers are compared to the swinging, earthy Little Willies, but she's always had immaculate taste and that's evident throughout this enjoyable, lightweight addendum to her first decade of recording. --AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
