#350 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time


Rust Never Sleeps is an album by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young and American band Crazy Horse. It was released on July 2, 1979, by Reprise Records. Most of the album was recorded live, then overdubbed in the studio. Young used the title "rust never sleeps" as a concept for his tour with Crazy Horse to avoid artistic complacency and try more progressive, theatrical approaches to performing live.
The bulk of the album was recorded live at San Francisco's Boarding House and during the Neil Young/Crazy Horse tour in late 1978, with overdubs added later. Audience noise is removed as much as possible, although it is clearly audible at certain points, most noticeably on the opening and closing songs. The album is half acoustic and half electric, opening and closing with different versions of the same song: "Hey Hey, My My".
"My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)", "Thrasher" and "Ride My Llama" were recorded live at the Boarding House in early 1978 and all of side two was recorded during the late 1978 tour. Two songs from the album were not recorded live: "Sail Away" was recorded without Crazy Horse during or after the Comes a Time recording sessions, and "Pocahontas" had been recorded solo around 1975.
Young also released a film version of the album under the same title. Later on in 1979, Young and Crazy Horse released the album Live Rust, a compilation of older classics interweaving within the Rust Never Sleeps track list. The title is borrowed from the slogan for Rust-Oleum paint, and was suggested by Mark Mothersbaugh of the new wave band Devo. It is also an aphorism describing Young's musical self-renewal to avert the threat of irrelevance.

Recorded: Richard King at Sear Sound, NYC, Apr 10-16 2010.

A double album tribute to Miles Davis' seminal Sketches of Spain featuring Chick Corea, Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield, Ron Carter, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, and many more!
A Journey Into the Spanish Soul of Miles Davis, conceived and produced by Grammy-nominated saxophonist Bob Belden.
In May of 2010, a group of Miles Davis alumni, New York’s finest Latin Jazz players, and a contingent of exceptional Spanish musicians, gathered at Sear Sound Studios in Manhattan for an unprecedented recording event.
MILES ESPANOL travels more deeply than ever before into the connective tissue between the jazz innovations of Miles Davis and the modern masters who performed in his bands; and the dramatic, romantic soul of Spanish, Latin and Moorish traditional and contemporary music. The double album is split into two parts.
The first, new interpretations and arrangements of Miles classics from Sketches Of Spain (“Concierto de Aranjuez”, “Saeta/Pan Piper, “Solea”) Kind Of Blue (“Flamenco Sketches”), and Someday My Price Will Come (“Teo” aka “Teo/Neo”.)
The second, new compositions by principals in the sessions—Chick Corea, Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield, Ron Carter, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, etc.—that enhance and extend the musical concepts into the multicultural language of 21st Century Jazz.

Joshua Redman - Trios Live (2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88.2kHz

Artist: Joshua Redman
Title: Trios Live
Genre: Jazz, Post-Bop, Straight-Ahead, Saxophone Jazz, Jazz-Funk
Label: © Nonesuch Records
Release Date: 2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:03:44
Recorded: Tracks 1, 5–7 recorded October 2009 live at Jazz Standard, New York, NY; Tracks 2–4 recorded February 2013 live at Blues Alley, Washington, DC.

Nonesuch Records releases saxophonist Joshua Redman’s Trios Live on June 17, 2014. The album was recorded at New York City’s Jazz Standard and Washington, DC’s Blues Alley during stands with two different trios—Redman and drummer Gregory Hutchinson with bassist Matt Penman (Jazz Standard) and Redman and Hutchinson with bassist Reuben Rogers (Blues Alley). Trios Live features four original tunes by Redman and interpretations of three additional songs.
“This album is dedicated to all those folks, all around the world, of all ages, identities, allegiances, and persuasions, who come out, day to day, night after night, to see and hear live jazz,” Redman says in the album’s liner notes. “You bear witness to this music; you testify to that moment. You are here. You were there. You made it possible. You make it real. You are the reason. You were the point.”
The New York Times has said, “Joshua Redman is one of the most visible jazz musicians of the last 15 years, which says something not just about his natural flow as an improviser and his command as a bandleader, but also about his willingness to use words…to represent jazz to the outside world.” Redman’s first self-titled studio album was released by Warner Bros. in 1993; eight additional records followed on Warner. His Nonesuch debut, Momentum, was released in 2005, along with the first of two SFJAZZ Collective albums on which he served as artistic director. Next Nonesuch released Back East, Redman’s first studio recording with an acoustic trio, followed by Compass, which featured double trios, and James Farm, a collaboration with pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman, and drummer Eric Harland.
Last year, Nonesuch released Walking Shadows, comprising 12 ballads; it was Redman’s first recording to include an orchestral ensemble, and it was produced by Redman’s friend and frequent collaborator Brad Mehldau. Redman regularly tours the world with various ensembles. In fall 2014, Redman, with Reuben Rogers and Greg Hutchinson will be playing trio dates in the US.

[a] brilliant pianist -- one of those daunting Frenchmen clearly born with three brains . . . the C major prelude starts us off, the notes light and limpid, the graceful pace ebbing when Bach's harmonies veer from the straight and narrow . . . Aimard has clearly thought deeply about the collections's kaleidoscopic structure . . . The F sharp minor fugue is a mysterious wonder, as if the music were feeling its way in the dark; the G major prelude sparkles with gaiety . . . --Geoff Brown, The Times

George F. Handel - Belshazzar - Hanoverian Court Orchestra, Maulbronn Chamber Choir, Jurgen Budday (2011) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Georg Frideric Handel (1685-1759)
Artist: Hanoverian Court Orchestra, Maulbronn Chamber Choir, Jürgen Budday
Title: George F. Handel - Belshazzar
Genre: Classical, Oratorio
Label: © K&K Verlagsanstalt
Release Date: 2011
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 2:27:39
Recorded: Concert recording from the church of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Maulbronn Monastery.

This recording is part of a cycle of old testament oratorios by G. F. Handel and is one of the many concerts performed at Maulbronn monastery over the past years. The series combines authentically performed baroque oratorios with the optimal acoustics and atmosphere of this unique monastic church. This ideal location demands the transparency of playing and the interpretive unveiling of the rhetoric intimations of the composition, which is especially aided by the historically authentic performance. The music is exclusively performed on reconstructed historical instruments, which are tuned to the pitch customary in the composers lifetime.
The oratorio, Belshazzar, devotes itself to the story of the Babylonian king, Belshazzar, as presented in the biblical story from the book of Daniel. Belshazzar commits sacrilege against the God of the Israelites, upon which a ghostly hand inscribes the mysterious text, the Menetekel, upon the wall of the court, predicting the downfall of the kingdom and the death of Belshazzar at the hands of the Persians. The prophecy is fulfilled that very same night.

Recorded: January 2013 at Jesus-Christus Kirche in Dahlem, Berlin.

The great painters have always known how to combine the different perspectives of the Nativity into a single picture. Here the RIAS Kammerchor tells the Christmas Story in music: Mendelssohn frames the painting, to which the darkness and the promise of promise of heavenly light form the background. The Virgin Mary leads us to the heart of Christmas Night and to rejoicing at the Saviour’s birth. We come full circle with the Four Motets of Poulenc, which sum up all the facets of Christmas and its emotions.
