DALI CD VOL 1
John Campbell's dark, raw and expressive voice underlines the lyrics of the old Tom Waits song 'Down In The Hole' so effortlessly. I our opinion it is a great recording from a great musician.
'Mississippi' is unmistakably one of the superior tracks on 'Blue Grooves from Vienna', which is an exciting and enjoyable experience.
'Stimela (The Coal Train)' is a dynamic track of excellent quality and as a live recording it is one of our favorites. It is as if you are actually standing there in front of the band on that sunny afternoon at the Blues Alley.
THE YURI HONING TRIO
'Walking On The Moon' combines two worlds that do not often meet - the poop/rock/reggae world of an immortal Police/Sting song and the world of Jazz.
JOCELYN B. SMITH
'When I Need You' is a live recording, which is a real musical experience. Jocelyn B. Smith is known for the emotional impact of her unbelievable intonation, which has been known to give tough men goosebumps and bring tears to the eyes of strong women.
In 1996 Jan Akkerman put his more than 30 year career into perspective. He recorded 'Focus in Time', part retrospective, part overview of his musical luggage from where 'Am I Loosing You' was taken.
'Cannonball' is taken from Damien Rice's album '0', which immediately was lauded by the critics as mesmerizing, absorbing, adventurous and emotional.
PETER SCHNEIDER & THE STIMULATORS
'St. James Infirmary' is a great live recording with a nice ambiance. It is quite obvious that there are skilled musicians at work here.
Terry Evans' voice and guitar-play on 'Get Your Lies Straight' pays tribute to the blues legends as a whole - and boy does this band swing and rock and roll like the party has just begun.
The album 'Companion' was Patricia Barbers fifth recording but her first live recording. Part of this album is 'Let It Rain', which is an intimate live recording.
MARILYN MAZUR & AUDUN KLEIVE
'Drum Impro' is an improvisation between Marilyn Mazur and fellow drummer Audan Kleive, which is not available on any other release.
'Bach Up To Me' is superbly recorded with brilliant fidelity and presence. The album "Dick Hyman plays Fats Waller" from which this track is taken i a highly personal homage to Fats Waller.
