For Blade Runner 2049, Johann Johannsson's score pays homage to Vangelis' original / POP DUST


A new trailer for " Blade Runner 2049" has dropped over 2 months after the first preview was released. "Good Morning America" debuted the extended look at the long-awaited sequel Monday morning. While the first trailer introduced us to Ryan Gosling's character, LAPD Blade Runner, Officer K, this new clip reveals more about Harrison Ford's character, who says that he and his fellow Blade Runners were being hunted. Previews haven't focused on Decker thus far because it's rumored Ford doesn't appear until the last third of the movie p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial; min-height: 11.0px} The cinematography is just as visually exotic as past previews, but featured more of Johann Johannsson's synthesizer-induced score that pays homage to Vangelis' original score for 1982's Blade Runner. The first film was characterized so much by it's sounds scape as well as every frame treated as if a photograph on a gallery wall. Johannsson has said his work on the movie was "an enormous challenge of mythical proportion." READ THE FULL POP DUST ARTICLE & WATCH THE VIDEO

One year in, the Branford Marsalis - Kurt Elling partnership flourishes / Financial Times


When Branford Marsalis invited Kurt Elling to record the album Upward Spiral with his long-running quartet, he gained a front-line partner as well as a charismatic vocal lead. Elling doesn't just interpret a song, he inhabits it, drawing out its character through phrasing, note choice and tone. As the CD also proved, he is an ideal foil for the trenchant lyricism of the saxophonist's aesthetic. One year on, and the partnership flourishes. At this long, single-set performance at the barcian - London, vocals intertwined with sax, mood-soaked harmonies were bittersweet and solos dug in, veered off at angles and stopped on the point of a pin.

Proms 2017 - Staatskapelle has few peers among European bands today / theguardian


Both of the Staatskapelle's concerts were a reminder that it has few peers among European bands today. The Elgar symphonies – the First preceded by Sibelius's Violin Concerto, with Lisa Batiashvili as the fabulously agile, intense soloist, the Second following the Birtwistle – were played with immense authority, and as much stylistic confidence as these players would bring to Wagner or Strauss. Barenboim's return to Elgar, to works that he began conducting early in his career on the podium, when he recorded all of the major orchestral scores for the first time, seems to have been inspired by working with the Berlin orchestra. Much more than most of his British contemporaries, Elgar has always seemed a thoroughly European composer, whose stylistic roots delve so deeply into the Austro-German tradition, and hearing his music played by an orchestra at the very heart of that tradition reinforces those affiliations.

A perfect cast of characters on - The Passion of Charlie Parker / Jazz Weekly review


Here is a great idea, with almost a perfect cast of characters. Producer Larry Klein celebrates the music and life of Charlie Parker by using the famed alto saxist's songs for vehicles of musical narration by an A team of singers. With Madeleine Peyroux doing a slow and simmering "Ornithology" as "Meet Charlie Parker," Gregory Porter slowing down "Yardbird Suite" to a soulful strut, Luciana Souza gently articulating "Bloomdido" via "Every Little Thing" and Kurt Elling waxing eloquence like a guide on a "Moose the Mooch'd" "Los Angeles," the recipe seems like a sure winner.

John Scofield - Uberjam Band lives up to it's reputation at Edinburgh Jazz Festival / Herald Scotland review


The masters lived up to their reputations in this fascinating and contrasting double bill at the Edinburgh Jazz Festival that featured two of the great guitarists of the past thirty-plus years in groups that matched, supported and nurtured their virtuosity. John Scofield and Mike Stern are linked by having played with Miles Davis, in the same edition of the trumpeter's band, but even before that they had established their own, very distinctive voices, a term that grew in significance as the concert wore on. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial; min-height: 11.0px} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial} span.Apple-tab-span {white-space:pre} In a group that set a determinedly relaxed pace Scofield pared his playing to the essence, crafting solos that were every bit as concerned with tonal exactness and variety as they were with perfection in note choices. Responding to the textures of rhythm guitarist Avi Bortnick's licks, flicks and samples, bassist Andy Hess's warm grooving and drummer Dennis Chambers' wonderfully understated expertise, this was to all intents and purposes blues singing of the highest order with a sunny side on the Caribbean-flavoured Dub Dub. Clearly defined, highly refined music with a sharp, spontaneous edge. READ THE FULL Herald Scotland REVIEW

Hans Zimmer puts on grand showcase at Smart Financial Centre / Houston Chronicle - Houston Press


From Houston Chronicle - If Aphex Twin and Richard Wagner had a lovechild, it'd be a lot like the second act of "Hans Zimmer Live" - turbulent, primordial, mathematical. While the first half of the concert featuring one of the world's best known film score composers is fun but noisy and directionless, the two-hour finale that occurs after intermission is both a tribute to classical, electronic and rock history and a study in delayed gratification. "This is going to get weird," Zimmer told a quiet, attentive crowd at the Smart Financial Centre on Friday night during act two. "You'll make it through." p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial; min-height: 11.0px} Making it through might be Zimmer's words for yet-another night of his grand multimedia presentation featuring a full band, an orchestra and a choir. But sit near the stage where the lights shower down on you and you can feel the bass in your chest, and suddenly it's a gross understatement for what feels like entering into a wormhole from "Interstellar."   From Houston Press - Zimmer's entire band was on fire all night, and although the vocal mix was a bit rough from time to time, overall hearing the songs was enjoyable the same way that hearing songs a pop show is: music is so much heavier when it's not been processed to hell and back. There were moments in the show, especially during the songs he's done for the DC film universe, that felt heavier than anything I've seen from a rock band this year. That doom and gloom was balanced nicely with his piano-centric pieces, which it feels like Zimmer has a particular fondness for.   It was a night that made me hope that this could become a trend for film composers who would like a few more ovations in their life. Best of luck to anyone who wants to try: Hans Zimmer has set the bar pretty high.  PHOTO: Jason McElweenie READ THE FULL Houston Press READ THE FULL Houston Chronicle p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial}

Floating concert hall in danger of demolition / Curbed - New York Review of Books


One of the weirder projects in architect Louis Kahn's body of work may be facing an untimely end. The unique Point Counterpoint II, a 195-foot-long floating concert hall commissioned by the American Wind Symphony Orchestra, may dock for the last time in its present form. Without a new buyer, the concert hall may soon be torn off and turned into scrap at the end of the month, with the underlying barge turned into a simple vessel to move goods. Conductor Robert Austin Boudreau asked his friend Kahn to design the unique floating music hall in the ‘60s. The centerpiece of the double-hulled, self-propelled river showboat is the hydraulically-operated 25-foot-tall stage that opens up like a clam shell when the boat is docked and ready for a performance, and lowers after concerts so the vessel can slip under bridges. According to a recent letter in the New York Review of Books written by cellist Yo-Yo Ma, after five decades, Boudreau has decided he can't pay for upkeep anymore. Unless a buyer appears by the end of July, the boat will be broken down for scrap in a Louisiana shipyard. Ma calls the ship, "a powerful, living testament to American creativity and to the elemental role that culture plays in human life."

Daniel Barenboim conducts Lisa Batiashvili & Staatskapelle Berlin at the Proms / theguardian


Daniel Barenboim has become an annual visitor to the Proms. The orchestra that he conducts in Berlin appears regularly with him at the Albert Hall, too, and it's the Staatskapelle that dominates the first weekend of the new summer season with a pair of concerts in which Barenboim conducts the two Elgar symphonies. In the first of them, ( Royal Albert Hall, SW7, 15-16 July ) Symphony No 1 is prefaced by Sibelius's Violin Concerto, with Lisa Batiashvili as the soloist; while before the second symphony we get the UK premiere of Harrison Birtwistle's Deep Time, which Barenboim and his magnificent band performed for the first time last month.

IdeaStation WCVE: Richmond VA celebrates the Tour de France with Paris Combo


Like competition? Like biking? Well on this week's World Music Show (7/15) you get a mix of both, which is odd for a World Music Show, right? Well, let me explain…Seriously, there's no competition but this week's show does have a biking theme. Blame or thank the Tour de France, which is the epic bike race that takes place in numerous stages around the French countryside. Now, I love biking and each Tour, I keep trying to understand the Tour more and more (sorry, I'm just slow when it comes to digesting this event). But that's no reason we can't celebrate it with music from this beautiful country, right? So, we'll ride around the country to check out some really great French music from now to the past. Plus, we'll also hear music from other countries too-you know, to break up the stages.  Stage 1 through 4 (otherwise known as Hour One) features standout racers include Team Paris Combo, who have a new CD out called Tako Tasubo. This quartet takes the style of Django Reinhardt, French Chanson (lyric-driven music) and adds their own twist-namely catchy hooks and beats. The World Music Show hit the stages on Saturday form 8:00-10:00 p.m. on 88.9 WCVE Richmond Public Radio. Follow the race on Twitter @wcveworldmusic and on Facebook at the World Music Show on WCVE. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial; min-height: 11.0px}

Top 10 Albums for July

Various :

The Passion of Charlie Parker

The Passion of Charlie Parker is a new album from producer Larry Klein that tells the story of Charlie Parker using his music as inspiration for new songs that narrate his life. Guest artists include Gregory Porter, Madeleine Peyroux, Kandace Springs, actor Jeffrey Wright, and more. The album will be available on impulse!/ Verve digitally on June 16, with physical release to follow on June 30. Larry Klein says, "With this album I've endeavored to do something new and different in an effort to illustrate who ‘Bird' was as an archetypal character, and to draw attention to the huge impact that his work had on Jazz." Rather than create another tribute of traditional bebop tunes, Klein partnered with lyricist David Baerwald to create a musical play that tells the story of Charlie Parker's life while still playing with the jagged melodic nature of Charlie Parker's compositions. 40 NEW  51 TOTAL SYND: PRI / Jazz Happening Now Markets include: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Portland, Minneapolis, Albuquerque, Knoxville, Madison WI, Tampa, OR(Statewide), WV(Statewide), VT(Statewide), KS(Statewide), INTER: Canada, UK Online: GreenArrow, Jazz & Blues Report, KUHS/Vaya, Soulandjazz.com, Jazz Weekly 13 Jazzweek ADD's p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Helvetica}

She encouraged me, challenged me, cajoled me, and even fed me. It was one of the best times I have ever had working. For her trust in me I will be forever grateful. I dedicate this recording to her." Rabbit & Rogue is Danny Elfman's first ballet score, which he created for Twyla Tharps' choreography for the American Ballet Theater.
