The Westerlies - Wish The Children Would Come On Home (2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88,2kHz

Artist: The Westerlies

Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit

Duration: 00:47:10
Recorded: HG Studios, Lopez Island, WA, August 4–8, 2013


Four young Seattle brass players, all relocated to New York City to study at Juilliard and the Manhattan School of Music, decided to form a quartet in late 2011. Through much experimentation they discovered a colorful collective sound that drew from American folk music, indie rock, jazz, and classical music. For the next two years they performed constantly in both cities, creating and developing a large repertoire of original compositions. In early 2013 The Westerlies were approached by their Seattle-based teacher, friend, and mentor, Wayne Horvitz, to create a record of his music. They wholeheartedly agreed; all four of them were already very familiar with his body of work and had played in a number of his ensembles. After exploring his prolific output of the past thirty years, they selected a range of jazz tunes, film music, and classical chamber pieces, and chose to record them on location during their annual summer residency in the San Juan Islands of Washington.

These four childhood friends from Seattle formed The Westerlies in New York in 2011. Following their critically acclaimed Wayne Horvitz tribute, Wish the Children Would Come On Home, this self-titled release is a double-disc set featuring 14 original compositions by all four band members, as well as pieces by Ellington and Ives and a British folk ballad arranged by Sam Amidon and Nico Muhly. The Westerlies bring together jazz, improvisational, classical and folk feels and approaches, reflecting their individual musical interests and sensibilities as well as their studies at Juilliard and the Manhattan School of Music. The listener can hear each composer gently tugging the ensemble in the direction of his own taste, and the band follows, expressing their friendship through musical empathy.

In May of 2010, when Resonance Records first embarked upon the adventure of unearthing and presenting historical jazz recordings to the world, George Klabin and I began looking into various archives for tapes to release. One day, George came to me with a list of tapes he’d come across; tapes in the possession of Jim Wilke, who years earlier had been the host of a syndicated Seattle-based radio program called Jazz After Hours.
Over the course of Jim’s storied career, he’s been a staunch advocate for jazz and its greatest protagonists. Indeed, over the years, Jim has succeeded in presenting a veritable Who’s Who of ’50s and ’60s jazz greats to the public.
From February 1962 through August 1968, Jim hosted the weekly radio program, Jazz from the Penthouse, on Seattle’s KING-FM. As a well-known radio personality in the Northwest, Jim developed a working relationship with Seattle’s legendary jazz club, the Penthouse, and consequently was able to air live performances by a wide array of artists while they performed at the club. These performances were broadcast direct to the public right as they happened. The shows not only went on the air live, Jim taped them, employing professional recording techniques and equipment. Over the years, Jim amassed an impressive collection of high-quality tapes; tapes that form a unique archive of the extraordinary music heard over the course of more than half a decade at the Penthouse by virtually all of the amazing music legends that played there.

The Tempest- inspired by Shakespeare - Simon-Pierre Bestion, La Tempete (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Matthew Locke (v. 1621–1677), Giovanni Battista Draghi (v. 1640–1708), Henry Purcell (1659–1695), Frank Martin (1890–1974), Philippe Hersant (1948), James Hart (1647–1718), Thierry Pécou (1965)
Artist: La Tempête, Simon-Pierre Bestion
Title: The Tempest: inspired by Shakespeare
Genre: Classical
Label: © Alpha Classics / Outhere Music France
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 01:20:21
Recorded: From 29 to 31 july 2014 at L’eglise du Saint-Esprit (Choisy-Le-Roi, France)


A profoundly modern dimension emerges from this confrontation between English works from the 17th century (Henry Purcell, Matthew Locke) and works from the 20th and 21st centuries (Philippe Hersant, Franck Martin, Thierry Pécou). Coming from highly different musical universes, each composition is, however, largely inspired by the founding themes of Shakespeare’s play, sometimes taking up excerpts from it.
The text is recited in English, or rather Shakespeare’s ‘Old English’, as are all the sung parts, in order to reproduce the strong, sweet accent of that tongue.

The Doors - L.A. Woman (1971/2012) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Artist: The Doors
Title: L.A. Woman
Genre: Rock, Hard Rock, Blues Rock, Proto-Punk, Psychedelic/Garage, Rock & Roll
Label: © Elektra Entertainment Group/Analogue Productions XAPP75011D64
Release Date: 1971/2012
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz
Source: AcousticSounds
Duration: 00:48:51
Recorded: December 1970 – January 1971, The Doors' Workshop, Los Angeles, California
Mastered by Doug Sax using an all-tube system. Overseen by Bruce Botnick, The Doors producer/engineer. DSD files created from the Analogue Productions SACD cutting master by Gus Skinas.


The title track from this, the last Doors album recorded with Jim Morrison, who died shortly after it was released, has, said one reviewer, “maybe the best Chuck Berry riffs since the Stones.” And that’s not even mentioning “Love Her Madly,” which became one of the highest charting hits for The Doors.
“Love Her Madly,” was written by Doors guitarist Robbie Krieger, who is said to have penned the song about the numerous times his girlfriend threatened to leave him. The song peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and reached No. 3 in Canada.
L.A. Woman was still high on the charts when, like in the lyric “actor out on loan” of its closing track — the celebrated “Riders on the Storm,” Jim Morrison died in a Paris bathtub in the summer of 1971.
Via such tracks as “The Changeling,” “Crawling King Snake,” and the frothy, rollicking title track, the collection leaned heavily toward the Blues — in particular, Morrison’s boastful “Lizard King” brand of it. All-in-all, Rolling Stone proclaimed L.A. Woman, “The Doors’ greatest album, including their first,” and “A landmark worthy of dancing in the streets.”
Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings are proud to announce that six studio LP titles — The Doors, Strange Days,Waiting For The Sun, Soft Parade, Morrison Hotel and L.A. Woman — are featured on 200-gram vinyl, pressed at 45 rpm. All six are also available on Hybrid Multichannel SACD! All were cut from the original analog masters by Doug Sax, with the exception of The Doors, which was made from the best analog tape copy.

Taneyev & Rimsky-Korsakov - Piano Trios - Leonore Piano Trio (2017) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Sergei Taneyev (1856-1915), Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908)
Artist: Leonore Piano Trio
Title: Taneyev & Rimsky-Korsakov - Piano Trios
Genre: Classical
Label: © Hyperion Records
Release Date: 2017
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: hyperion-records.co.uk
Duration: 77 minutes 56 seconds
Recorded: January 2016, All Saints' Church, East Finchley, London, United Kingdom


Rimsky-Korsakov described Taneyev’s best music as possessing ‘a wealth of beauty and expressiveness’, a verdict with which no one is likely to disagree after hearing the piano trio recorded here. Rimsky was (unjustly) disparaging towards his own, unfinished, trio, which emerges as a brooding, substantial work well worthy of revival.
