Heads Of State - Four in One (2017) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Heads of State
Title: Four in One
Genre: Jazz
Label: © Smoke Sessions Records
Release Date: 2017
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: ProStudioMasters
Duration: 01:12:22
Recorded live in New York at Sear Sound’s Studio C on a Sear-Avalon custom console at 96KHz/24bit and mixed to ½” analog tape using a Studer mastering deck.

Heads of State made their debut in 2015 with Search for Peace, recorded just months after they played together for the first time as a quartet at Smoke Jazz Club in New York City. Now, with another year of playing together under their collective belts (on top of the nearly five decades of relationships shared by the various members), they return with a magnificent new album Four in One.
The title comes from the lesser-known Thelonious Monk composition that opens the record, but it also succinctly captures the group’s growing spirit and identity that have been forged by an all-star band that was originally meant to be a one-time thing. “We’re trying as best as we know how to establish our own identity,” Willis explains, “and not sound like a jam session band.”
Given the impeccable taste and wealth of experience of all four members, there was very little chance of a “jam session” sensibility emerging in any case, but in the short time they’ve been working together the Heads of State have developed a lithe and lively group sound that’s equal parts burning and elegant, sharp-edged and gregarious.
While the bands’ first album was thrilling because it brought together four revered and masterful musicians in one place for the first time ever, Four in One may be even more exciting because it announces their intention to continue to collaborate and evolve together. Given what happens when these four join forces, that’s one enticing prospect.

Beyond its status as a unique discographical adventure, Haydn2032 will also bring together leading European concert halls, which will present these programmes to their audiences. From one season to another, the artists involved in the project will breathe new life into this music for thousands of concertgoers in Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, the UK and other countries.
This heritage project will also be strongly rooted in the world of today. This will be reflected, of course, in the intensely vivid and contemporary interpretations of Giovanni Antonini, but also in visual terms: Haydn2032 has combined with the famous Magnum agency, founded in 1947 by a group of photographers including Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson, to create the photographic universe of the series. A Magnum photographer is selected for each recording and associated with the artistic process: his or her photos are then featured on the covers of the recordings, inside the booklets, and throughout the communication for the concerts. Open your eyes and ears and immerse yourself in the world of one of the great pioneers of music!

Franz Joseph Haydn - Cello Concertos Nos. 1 & 2 - Mstislav Rostropovich, Academy of St Martin in the Fields (2017) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
Artist: Mstislav Rostropovich, Academy Of St. Martin In The Fields
Title: Haydn - Cello Concertos Nos. 1 & 2
Genre: Classical
Label: © Warner Classics
Release Date: 2017

Duration: 00:49:23
Recorded: 15,16.XI.1975, Abbey Road Studios, London.


In March 2017, Warner Classics marks the 10th anniversary of Mstislav Rostropovich’s death and 90 years since his birth with the deluxe collectors’ box set Cellist of the Century, comprising of selected remastered recordings.
The label was given unprecedented access to Rostropovich’s personal archive and worked closely with his daughters Elena and Olga. The range and variety of music in the box set is nothing short of extraordinary, embracing works by more than 60 composers, from iconic recordings to rarities. A number of the live performances originate from Russian tapes saved from destruction by resourceful Soviet archivists when Rostropovich was exiled from the USSR (1974-1990), and which came back to light in the late 1990s. Another highlight is the complete Bach Cello Suites, presented here in both audio and video versions. The collection also features an exclusive audio interview of Rostropovich recorded by personality Jon Tolansky.
Although Rostropovich died 10 years ago, on 27 April 2007, he remains a powerful presence on the world’s cultural scene through his legacy as the greatest cellist of his time, as a brave advocate of human rights, and as a man of proverbial generosity and charisma.
Special care has been taken to ensure the highest quality of sound reproduction. Wherever possible, the engineers of Art et Son studios have refined the sound, always with scrupulous respect to the original sources. The analogue recordings originating from EMI and Erato (CD1-15) have been remastered in 96 kHz from the original tapes. These are, therefore, the first recordings where the presence and definition of sound are heard in such detail.

Music of great virtuosity: vibrant, joyful and fiery arias contrast with tragic and deeply felt laments. Concerto Köln, one of Germany’s finest period instrument orchestras, are led by young conductor (and pianist) Mikhail Antonenko and feature an array of world-class baroque musicians including violinist Dmitry Sinkovsky and lutenist Luca Pianca.

Best known for her Grammy-winning folk hit "We'll Sing in the Sunshine," Gale Garnett later carved out a long-lived career as a writer and actress.
Gale Zoë Garnett was born in Auckland, New Zealand, on July 17, 1942; her family moved to Canada when she was 11, and she made her public singing debut in 1960. In 1964, Garnett scored a Top Five pop hit with her original composition "We'll Sing in the Sunshine," and recorded her debut album, My Kind of Folk Songs, for RCA Victor. Riding the success of "We'll Sing in the Sunshine," which won a Grammy for Best Folk Recording, Garnett continued to record through the rest of the '60s, eventually breaking into psych-pop with a backing band called the Gentle Reign.
Toward the end of the 1960s, she also began appearing in feature films and on television shows, usually in supporting roles. In subsequent years, Garnett also branched out into journalism, writing essays, columns, and book reviews for various newspapers and magazines. Additionally, she wrote and performed two one-person theater pieces, Gale Garnett & Company and Life After Latex. --Artist Biography by Steve Huey

Bringing to light another of Hans Gál’s gorgeously melodic and finely crafted scores, AVIE presents the world premiere recording of the Austrian émigré’s Concerto for Piano and Orchestra with English pianist Sarah Beth Briggs supported by Gál aficionado Kenneth Woods conducting the Royal Northern Sinfonia. Written in 1948, Gál’s large-scale romantic concerto abounds with sweeping phrases and pyrotechnics, yet at the heart of the piece lies the composer’s signature clarity and precision, making the work an ideal coupling for his 18th century Viennese compatriot Mozart’s great E-flat major concerto of 1785.

TANGO IN THE NIGHT: DELUXE EDITION includes a third disc that compiles more than a dozen 12” mixes. Dub versions of “Seven Wonders” and “Everywhere” are featured along with an extended version “Little Lies” remixed by John “Jellybean” Benitez.
