The album was recorded June 29, 2021 at the Samurai Hotel Recording Studio and mixed and mastered by Mike Marciano at the Systems Two Recording Studios.

Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

Ralph Flanagan was born on April 7th 1919 in Loraine, Ohio. He became pianist-arranger for Sammy Kaye and other bands and singers. His own band with ex Tommy Dorsey singer Harry Prime was credited with stimulating the 1950s revival of the Glenn Miller sound. this CD is divided into three parts. First come seven Rodgers and Hammerstein songs. All of them except What’s The Use Of Wond’rin’? we’re in the Ralph Flanagan “Rodgers and Hammerstein” album recorded in 1949 for the series, “Fifteen Great Bands Play The Music Of Fifteen Great Composers”. The second part of the CD includes thirteen standards by Rodgers, Jerome Kern , Irving Berlin and other talented composers, like Rudolf Friml who with Otto Harbach wrote Giannina Mia from “The Firefly” which confirms Flanagan’s love of operetta music. Part 3 of the CD consists of six song hits. In March 1950 Ralph Flanagan reacted to the demand for public appearances by his band, by forming his touring band. However, it was his studio band which gave him his start .

Title:
Life In Time
Release Date: 2/18/2022
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

Brooklyn-based trumpeter Darren Johnston has been involved with several highly creative music scenes over the last 2 decades, which has included recording duo albums with Fred Frith, and projects with the larger ensembles of Marcus Shelby or Larry Ochs and the OrkestRova. For "Life in Time," Johnston traveled to Chicago during a lull in the pandemic to continue an artistic relationship he's developed over the last several years with saxophonist Geof Bradfield, bassist Clark Sommers, and drummer Dana Hall. The Chicago trio's long history has resulted in an empath-level rapport, obvious through this set of ten originals by Johnston & Bradfield. From the Ornette-esque, rollicking "Little Gold Fish," to the stately melody of "Lost and Found," layered over a roiling rubato undercurrent, the quartet is patient, attentive, and inspired, unraveling a set that rewards deep and repeated listens. "Johnston explores the limits of his instrument with a hankering for originality running away and never looking back." - San Francisco Bay Guardian "...a resourceful improviser who writes vivid, episodic themes. Someone to watch, on trumpet of course, but as a composer and bandleader as well." - DownBeat

Xxx The Number Of The Beat

Format: CD
List Price: (A19) $19.98 

11th album for LOS FASTIDIOS, the italian band on the road since 1991, celebrating this year their 30th anniversary. 13 new songs in the classic LOS FASTIDIOS tradition: an explosive mixture of sounds of the street, from streetpunk to rock'n'roll, from 2Tone ska to rocksteady rhytms, from indie brit pop to streetsoul, sung in italian, english and french. A great album to sing and dance, that will make the joy of all the fans of the band and not only them. Lyrics ranging from fun to social commitment, addressing issues such as racism, repression, human rights and animal rights, freedom, subcultures, unity, all with that positive and proactive attitude typical of Los Fastidios. It was not easy to realize un album at the same level to the previous Joy Joy Joy, that by the insiders, had been defined, the best work of the band, but this time the 5 italian rudies went beyond !!! An album full of hope, energy, passion, in the name of fun and to entertain the listeners, an album to sing, to dance, to think. An album written during the pandemic, during the lockdown, carefully arranged songs, an album recorded almost complitely in the home studio of Bibol (guitarplayer), a real "do it yourself" job. Only the drumset were recorded at the Animal Studio in Ferrara (I) by Federico Viola while mixing and mastering at the La Distilleria Produzioni Musicali in Bassano (I) by Maurizio "Icio" Baggio. In the album special guest on keyboards, Andrea Massaroni (Shandon, The Magnetics) and The Urgonauts and Lennon Kelly on backing vocals. Artwork cover realized by Andrea THE AND Sartori, which in the past designed other old Los Fastidios album covers.

Title:
Against All Odds
Release Date: 2/18/2022
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

Though reflecting on the wide-ranging, cascading emotions and endless complications created by the pandemic, saxophonist Jared Sims somehow manages to find an optimistic voice that weaves its way through the narrative of "Against All Odds," his 10th solo recording. Guitarist Steve Fell, bassist Keala Kaumeheiwa, and drummer Luther Gray have been in Sims's musical life for years, the shared experiences adding easily accessed emotional depth to his stories. "Angst" explores the dread of seclusion. The title track is about Sims's father surviving after 3 months on a ventilator, while "Dear Gaia" reflects on the Earth goddess through his wife's, Amy M. Alvarez's, poetry. "Against All Odds" reveals an honest recollection of truth while remembering to celebrate all that is and will be great in our lives. "...a real find. One of the most exciting saxophonists and band leaders I have heard in a long time." - Music Republic Magazine

Misha's Wishes
Release Date: 1/21/2022
Format: CD
List Price: (B18) $18.98 

Misha Tsiganov, who lived in Leningrad in the former Soviet Union until he emigrated to the U.S. in 1991, has never shied away from a challenge. That's apparent from the level's of complexity that Tsiganov embeds in the 18 arrangements and 9 originals on his three prior Criss Cross Albums. As written in the liner notes for the album Spring Feelings, Tsiganov has established a signature blend of mixed meters, shifting tempos, changing keys and re-harmonization that he deploys in order to insure 'that something is happening', so the listener doesn't fall asleep. Tsiganov's latest, Misha's Wishes, doesn't eschew technical complexity. But the feel of this sophisticated, emotionally nuanced program - performed by old friends Alex Sipiagin, Seamus Blake, Boris Kozlov and Donald Edwards, with whom Misha Tsiganov feels such simpatico is different than its predecessors. The Album was recorded September 9, 2021 at the Samurai Hotel Recording Studio in NY. Mike Marciano did the editing, mixing and mastering.

The Best Years Of Our Lives 1956
Release Date: 2/18/2022
Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

1956 was an excellent year, vocalists and groups were breaking away from the big band sounds of the early fifties. Rock “N” Roll was in the ascendancy and it was the year that saw the first Elvis Presley film “Love Me Tender” appear in cinemas world wide. The Platters singing group had smash hits with “My Prayer” and “The Great Pretender”. Fats Domino had a hit with “I’m In Love Again” and Carl Perkins worried about his “Blue Suede Shoes” which must have been infectious as Elvis had the same problem. One of the big Broadway productions of that year was Lerner and Loewe’s “My Fair Lady” and we have featured a selection of tracks from that show on this CD. 1956 was a very good year indeed.
