The combination of Stanley Turrentine's evocative, soulful tenor sax and Les McCann's gospel-tinged piano proved a potent combination on this exciting album. This is excellent soul-jazz session with Turrentine blowing hot. Turrentine recorded scores of albums in his lifetime, but this 1962 session remains one of his best.

Mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter is an artist who continues to amaze with the undiminished luster and beauty of her voice, the depth and daring of her interpretation, and her commitment to exploring unfamiliar repertoire. "Sogno Barocco" is a recital of Italian songs, scenas, and operatic solos and duets drawn from the early to middle Baroque era. Dedicated to early Italian opera protagonists such as Poppea, Penelope, Diana and Helena, this clever programme gathers baroque hit duets such as Si Dolce è l tormento or Pur ti miro and the previously unreleased Provenzale cantata or Rossi's Lamento of the Swedish Queen… This delicate and subtle series of baroque jewels is performed with an amazing cast, starring French soprano Sandrine Piau, in 3 breathtaking duets, and baroque rising-star conductor Leonardo García Alarcón, one of the current darlings of Italian baroque.

Epstein, a notable player on the New York scene in the '90s, has kept a lower profile since moving to Nevada, where he now serves as director of the jazz studies program at University of Nevada, Reno. His playing, thankfully, hasn't suffered one bit from the change of scenery. Polarities finds him in strong form, working with and against three of his longtime musical friends; this album may mark the first time that Epstein, trumpeter Ralph Alessi, bassist Sam Minaie, and drummer Mark Ferber were recorded as a single unit, but the saxophonist's ties with each man run deep.

Irascible, demanding, bullying, and probably a genius, Charles Mingus cuts himself a uniquely iconoclastic path through jazz in the middle of the 20th century, creating a legacy that became universally lauded only after he was no longer around to bug people. This album is a result of a session for 'Period Records' that was originally issued on two ten-inch records entitled 'Jazzical Moods'. The experimental workings of Mingus are briliantly explained in the booklet notes by the man himself in this suitably renamed format.
