As long as you're living yours : the music of Keith Jarrett by Keith Jarrett( Recording )

5 editions published in 2000 in Undetermined and English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When an artist is feted as Keith Jarrett is on this tribute, it's usually thanks to compositional contributions that have enriched the jazz firmament. Jarrett's contributions are arguably more through force of personality and prodigious piano artistry than through his compositional output. That aside, producer Milan Simich delivers this 13-tune set as an eclectic tribute to Jarrett's writing. Reminiscent of Hal Willner's That's the Way I Feel Now tribute to Thelonious Monk and Meditations on Mingus, Simich has assembled a cast ranging from pop artist Bruce Hornsby, whose piano chops enliven the New Orleans second-line opener "Backhand," to the tender duo of violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and electric pianist Bob James on the understated "Book of Ways #9." Also notable are saxophonist Jimmy Greene and programmer Lord Jamar's minimalist take on "The Cure." Jarrett's oeuvre ranges from gospel pastiche to classical romance to a decided Ornette Coleman influence. The latter influence drives "Innocence," featuring George Garzone on tenor sax, and "Shades of Jazz", with Joe Lovano and Tom Harrell recalling Ornette and Don Cherry's spirited front line. Departures include Chucho Valdes's sprawling Cuban chops on "U Dance" and a rumbero treatment of Jarrett's "So Tender" from Nueva Rumba. The only solo track is a gentle lament from D.D. Jackson. --Willard Jenkins

Reggatta de blanc by Police (Musical group)( Recording )

13 editions published between 1978 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Als The Police 1977 mit ihrem Debut-Album <<Outlandos d'Amour>> aufhorchen liessen, fielen sie im damaligen Trend zunächst in die Schublade Punk-Rock. Zwar hatten ihre Musik und die ersten Hits <<Roxanne>> und <<So lonely>> in der Tat eine nervöse und kantige Rauheit, doch waren Sänger und Bassist Sting, Gitarrist Andy Summers und Schlagzeuger Stewart Copeland damals bereits sehr viel versiertere Musiker als die meisten ihrer Punk-Kollegen. Zum einen hatten sie ein Flair für knackige Pop-Songs, zum andern zunehmend Lust auf vertrackte Rhythmen - allem voran auf Reggae. -- <<Reggatta de Blanc>> - der Titel ihres zweiten Albums - meinte in Pseudo-Französisch genau das: weisser Reggae - aber unüberhörbar inspiriert von Bob Marley und seinen Wailers. Dank ihrer ersten Non-Stop-Tournee standen The Police vor den Aufnahmen zu <<Reggatta de Blanc>> am idealen Schnittpunkt von Perfektion und ungestümer Kraft. -- Mit <<Message in a Bottle>> und <<Walking on the Moon>> feierten sie in England ihre ersten beiden Nummer eins Hits. Und schafften sich als super-coole, wasserstoff-blondierte Jungs die Basis für den Super-Star-Durchbruch auch in den USA mit dem Album <<Zenyatta Mondatta>> im Jahr darauf. (Quelle:, 16.10.2008)
