"Through the years I've worked with great singers," says Lauderdale, "such as China Forbes, Storm Large, Jimmy Scott, Rufus Wainwright, Rita Moreno, the von Trapps. Kathleen is at that caliber. Had she ever considered a career in music instead of political activism, I believe she would be known all around the world, she's that good. Her phrasing is unlike anyone else's. Like her political speeches, she means every word she sings. One can't learn that. You either have it, or you don't. Kathleen HAS it!"

If Kandace Springs' new album Indigo sounds like something new, that's because it is. Simple while funky. Classic but contemporary. Straightforward in the way it breaks down complex ideas and genres. And, at the end of the day, undeniably human. That said, it isn't quite a rebirth for the Nashville-born artist, who after stints living in New York and Los Angeles has returned back home to Music City. She's long had that lithe and smoky voice and an intensely expressive mastery over the piano. For those paying attention, Kandace's second album finds her unleashing what was there all along, all at once, for the first time.

Influential radio station KCRW featured the song, hailing its "classic songwriting with slinky guitar work and an EDM beat." An announcement of the duo's sophomore album, Battle Lines, arrived shortly thereafter, as did two other tracks, "Enough to Believe," and lead single "Back Down."

Orchestre National de France & Leonard Bernstein – Leonard Bernstein – An American in Paris (2018) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

             


Artist: Orchestre National de France & Leonard Bernstein

This 7CD set is the fruit of the love affair that developed in Paris between Leonard Bernstein and the Orchestre National de France in the 1970s. Beside long-admired studio recordings, featuring Mstislav Rostropovich and Alexis Weissenberg among the soloists, it presents live performances completely new to the catalogue: a 1975 programme to celebrate Ravel's centenary -- with Bernstein himself as soloist in the G major piano concerto -- and orchestral suites taken from two of Bernstein's most celebrated and brilliant works, both infused with jazz: the film score On the Waterfront and the landmark Broadway musical West Side Story.

Leif Ove Andsnes – Chopin (2018) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

             


Artist: Leif Ove Andsnes
Title: Chopin
Genre: Classical
Release Date: 2018

Leif Ove Andsnes' last release of rare Sibelius piano works was universally acclaimed by critics worldwide. Now comes a release of very popular solo piano works by Chopin. The album includes all four famous Ballades interspersed with shorter Nocturnes. Andsnes intentionally inserted the Nocturnes between the Ballades to serve as a 'breather' to the epic nature of the Ballades. In doing so he breaks with the tradition of performing and recording the ballades as a cycle. This recording is a long-held dream come true for Andsnes, who has wanted to record the Ballades ever since discovering them as a teenager and instantly falling in love with them. These epic works have accompanied him and his career ever since. This is his first recording of Chopin works in 25 years.

Katia & Marielle Labeque – Amoria (2018) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

             


Artist: Katia & Marielle Labeque

Katia and Marielle Labque's attachment to their homeland is no secret. They decide to pay tribute to their roots interpreting a repertoire gathering works by Basque composers, dating from the Renaissance to the present day. The album Amoria ("love" in Euskara) dives at the heart of Basque culture with composers who managed to blend popular folklore to academic music. Alongside the ensemble Hegiak, the countertenor Carlos Mena or the Escolana Easo Araoz Gazte choir, the two pianists reassess five centuries of music with Euskara, the Basque tongue, as a watermark -- and culminating with a jubilant Bolro. "There are talks about my heart's stiffness. This isn't true. Though I am Basque and Basque people seldom confide, and in few people only. You would not believe with what regrets I left Saint-Jean-de Luz. I really felt this nostalgic impression only when I saw the ocean disappear first, then the Pyreneans. My country truly is one of the finest, the most beautiful I'd say! The sea is bordered by acacia trees! And soft green hills from the top of which fall the small balls of oaks trimmed la Basque. And on the top of it all, the Pyreneans, magically mauve. Besides, there is the light. It is not the relentless sky of the other southern country. Here, its shine is delicate. It makes the folks agile, elegant and their joy isn't vulgar. Dances are light, voluptuous without excess. Although very practiced, religion itself intertwines with a hint of skepticism." Maurice Ravel
