Here are a few selections of new music, recently added to our collection. For a complete list of new compact discs, see new music, fall 2013.
The King’s Delight by The King’s Noyse. How about some dance music. Well, how about some dance music from the 17th century? Interested? Here it is, the real thing. This ensemble, led by violinist David Douglass, is one of the premiere early music ensembles around. “Violinist David Douglass's mission in life is to rehabilitate the Renaissance violin as the instrument of choice for dance music of the period. He and his five-member band, along with soprano Ellen Hargis and lutenist Paul O'Dette, make a strong argument in this lively CD of English dance tunes from the 16th and 17th centuries.” – Tamara Bernstein, The Globe and Mail (Canada)
The Violin Sonatas by Beethoven, featuring Arthur Grumiaux and Clara Haskil. “In early 2007, both Decca and Brilliant released three disc sets of Beethoven's complete violin sonatas played by Belgian violinist Arthur Grumiaux and Romanian pianist Clara Haskil. Recorded in 1956 and 1957 and originally released on LP by Philips, these performances have stood the test of time. Grumiaux's effortless virtuosity, elegant phrasing, and impeccable intonation coupled with Haskil's soul and sympathetic if not always note-perfect accompaniment made for one of the most instantly appealing collections of these central repertoire works, and despite its age, anyone looking for a complete set should certainly consider this one.” – Allmusic.com
Creole Soul by Etienne Charles. This one is the latest from Trinidadian trumpet player Etienne Charles. “There’s not a lot of furrowed-brow music on “Creole Soul.” It adds denser rhythm and slicker pop dynamics; there are fewer moments concerned with showing off jazz-school chops. It’s easy to listen to. It could and should extend his appeal to listeners who like R&B or various adult-contemporary offshoots of jazz. But it’s also intellectually sound, going deeper into Mr. Charles’s basic interest, which is the affinities between Caribbean music and music from the American South, New Orleans jazz in particular. It doesn’t feel too academic or too grasping, overscripted or shallow. He’s got it about as right as he can.” – Ben Ratliff, New York Times
Finally Rich by Chief Keef. “Chief Keef serves as a reminder of what’s been whitewashed out of the hip-hop mainstream: a sense of the struggle bedeviling the communities that produce much of the music. For someone whose primary exposure to hip-hop comes from terrestrial radio or BET, and whose idea of a mainstream hip-hop star is Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne or even Rick Ross, who turned darker on his most recent album, “God Forgives, I Don’t,” the single-minded roughness of Chief Keef’s music would be almost wholly foreign.” – Jon Caramanica, New York Times
My Favorite Picture of You by Guy Clark. A country music offering for you. This is Guy Clark’s “first album of new material in four years. His voice isn't quite what it was, but his writing is distinctive as ever. He provides a reminder of his skill in mixing detailed observation and emotion on the title track, a moving tribute to songwriter Susanna Clark, his wife of 40 years, who died last year. On Heroes, he looks at the lives of servicemen returned from Iraq, while El Coyote tells the true story of Mexican illegal immigrants left to die in Texas, and has the no-nonsense power of a classic Woody Guthrie ballad. Backing is provided by Clark's homemade guitars, along with fiddle and banjo.” – Robin Denselow, The Guardian (UK)
