Crossover Media 'New Releases Podcast' for Oct/Nov 2019

Each month Crossover Media releases a podcast recapping recent and new releases that we are working to radio and online media.

Listen to the feature. This month's episode includes;

John Coltrane, Blue World - In 1964, the same year that John Coltrane recorded 'A Love Supreme' the National Film Board of Canada asked him to record music for a French-language film titled "The Cat in the Bag.' The 1964 session at Van Gelder Studios was with the classic Coltrane quartet - Jimmy Garrison, Elvin Jones and McCoy Tyner.

Ola Onabule, POINT LESS - A follow up to Onabule's last album, It's The Peace That Deafens, POINT LESS boldly expresses views on social injustice. It is an activist's call - at once a celebration of life and a cautionary take on the social forces that threaten it. Violence, immigration, xenophobia, betrayal, and dignity are themes considered on Point Less, rendered with a powerful and knowing generosity of spirit. Onabul' is rueful yet optimistic.

Paula Cole, Revolution - The new album from Grammy winner and six Grammy nominee, Paula Cole. It's her tenth album, Revolution, and she released on her own 675 record label.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Kahane-Batjer Jalbert, Bach, Part & Vasks - The LACO releases their first recording on BIS, in a very diverse program featuring music from Vasks, Jalbert, Arvo Part & Bach, and they do such a fine job on this.

Sweet Crude, Rougarou - Indigenous to South Louisiana, Sweet Crude characterizes their music as progressive embracing the region's French-speaking tradition. We're working the single 'Rougarou.' We like the sound of this. Heavy on the electronics.

Luka Sulic, The Four Seasons - After seven years of touring the world as part of 2CELLOS, Luka Šulić goes out on his own with this new Sony Classical release. He's doing Vivaldi Four Seasons, and this aint your father's 4 Seasons, and we like this version because it shows the flexibility in the piece.

Jan Garbarek, The Hilliard Ensemble Remember Me, My Dear - 25 years after the release of a very successful ECM release called 'Officium' Jan Garbarek and The Hilliard Ensemble release this 2014 live album from their final tour. The title, Remember me, my dear was named for the ballad which concludes the concert.

Third Coast Percussion, Fields - The Chicago-based quartet teams up with composer Devonte Hynes (aka Blood Orange) on a percussion soundtrack written for the Hubbard Street Dance Chicago company's choreography. Really interesting mix of percussion and electronics. Still digesting and listening to it every day.

Angele Dubeau & La Pieta, Pulsations - With this her 44th album, Pulsations features; evocative works by Olafur Arnalds, Ludovico Einaudi, Craig Armstrong, Max Richter, Yann Tiersen and more. We are way into this and believe it represents the current state of classical music.

The Comet Is Coming, The Afterlife - These guys are taking the UK and Euro jazz scene by storm (Glastonbury, Fuji Rock, Roskilde Festival, Off Festival) and have made impressionable appearances at Bonnaroo, SXSW, and Big Ears- where the band was dubbed as the festival's "Best Breakout Act" by Rolling Stone.

Miloš, Sound of Silence - With this his fifth studio album and his first recording since 2016, Miloš releases a beautiful, laid back recording featuring short tracks that radio loving to play.

youn sun nah, immersion - South Korean vocalist Youn Sun Nah, releases immersion for the Warner ARTS MUSIC Division. This versatile album of  jazz, folk and world music features both originals and covers including songs from; Marvin Gaye, Leonard Cohen and a nice arrangement of the Supremes classic; 'Can't Hurry Love.' She's got great profile in Europe and Asia with gold records in France and Germany. Immersion, is her American debut.

Seven Days Walking, Day 1 went №1 on the UK Classical Album Chart and Day One' became the fastest-streamed album ever from a classical composer in its first week of release, over 2 million streams.
