Tamar Of The River - A World Premiere Recording
Tamar of the River - What is this music? Tamar is a renegade piece of musical theater, drawing on traditions vast and cosmic: Jewish liturgical music, Islamic azans, European opera, jazz harmonies, African-American gospel, Japanese Noh singing, Balkan timbres, Pendereckian tone clusters, and Meredith Monkian extended vocal techniques all are kneaded together into something that simultaneously sounds like it came from 7000 years ago and some distant and improbable quantum future. At the center of it all is the voice, the oldest and most spiritual instrument, telling a story both through Joshua H Cohen’s evocative and myth-soaked text and through pure sound: breathes, moans, cries, screams, yawps, pure spirit transformed into aural experience. It is telling that Marisa has a fraught relationship with written scores; much of this music was composed and rehearsed orally, with the composer. Probably my favorite piece on the album is the wordless “Prayer Reprise,” 90 seconds of evocative subtleties that defy notation, featuring Marisa herself on vocals, improvising with Margot Bassett, a virtuosic singer whose close, muse-like collaboration with Marisa helped create the sound of the River. This stunning River Chorus is the core of the show, a unique architectural frame with a singular timbre that separates Tamar from just about anything that’s come before it: the bizarre dissonant nursery rhyme of “Where I Stand,” the Ravel-like “Ah”s in “Traveling,” the terrifying opening of “Lament”.

Telly Leung - I'll Cover You
I'll Cover You is an eclectic collection that features a variety of genres. "Although most audiences know my work as a Broadway performer," Telly says, "I love music of all genres. I wanted to 'cover' these songs in a way that would make the listener hear them again with a new perspective." His theatrical roots are represented by a joyously rhythmic arrangementof "Before The Parade Passes By" from Hello, Dolly!, a thoughtful "Children Will Listen" from Into The Woods and the disc's title track, which he performed in the final Broadway cast of Rent. The disc also features fresh interpretations of pop hits like a stirring rendition of Katy Perry's "Firework" Madonna's "Papa Don't Preach" ? the drama heightened by a driving Latin-tinged arrangement ? and a lyrical, pensive take on "Galileo" by The Indigo Girls.

Other highlights include his jazzy, saloon-soaked interpretation of the Cy Coleman standard "I'm Gonna Laugh You Right Out Of My Life" and a sweet, tender rendition of Lennon & McCartney's "In My Life" with simple guitar accompaniment. The album closes with a live performance of the Whitney Houston hit "I Believe In You and Me," with a full display of his soaring falsetto, recorded in concert at Birdland Jazz Club in New York.

joe Fiedler's - Big Sackbut

About the music on Joe Fiedler's Big Sackbut:
The album opens with "Mixed Bag", a kind of grooving, patchwork, polyphonic "quilt" that Fiedler has been piecing together for many years. "I love the vibe and interaction between the cats in the introduction, and I think that it sets the tone for what is to follow," said Fiedler. Fiedler and Roseman trade declamatory solo flights here, setting the bar high. "The Crab" was the title track from one of Fiedler's trio CDs that subsequently found a second home in the book of Bobby Sanabria's band (appearing on the recording, Big Band Urban Folk Tales). It finds a third home here, uniquely adapted for this quartet. Read More...
