Avante : Mackie's Back - ON SALEnew

Review: The nine mixed-voice members of Avante put it right out there in the liner notes, next to the listing and credits for the 10 cuts on their new CD: "Mackie's Back is both a debut, and a tribute, to the towering vocal ensembles who have shaped who we are. From Gene Puerling, to Chanticleer, to The Manhattan Transfer, to The Swingle Singers, Avante's influences are clear." Founded in Raleigh, NC in 2010 with the objective of fusing Contemporary A Cappella with the art form of Vocal Jazz, the five men and four women singers of Avante's repertoire ranges from Contemporary Choral works to cutting edge jazz with a modern flair. Avante tours the United States, in concert, corporate venues and on college campuses, usually drawing high praise for its high standard of musicianship and unique arrangements. Two nationally regarded clinicians in the group join in the group's educational outreach, providing workshops to students of all ages. Our favorites among the 10 excellent cuts are an original, "What Kind of Band," by group member Kevin, who also arranged "Feeling Good," "Third Time Lucky," Billy Joel's "Always a Woman" and "When I Fall." Group member William arranged "When Sunny Gets Blue" and the manic jazz standard "Twisted;" we also particularly loved the Puerling-arranged "London By Night," E. Lloyd's "Cells, Planets" and Brecht and Weill's deathless, chilling ballad "Mack The Knife," to which the title lyric refers. There's a tremendous amount of vocal talent here--Avante has a confident, fresh sound, surprising arrangements and a love of creating beautiful harmonies that shows. An impressive debut album from fast-rising Avante!

BR6 : For All - ON SALEnew

Review: We have rained superlatives over one woman-five man Brazilian sextet's first two albums, "Here To Stay" and "Musica Popular Brazileira A Cappella," and we have been rewarded with their third, "BR6 For All." There are 12 perfectly recorded and mixed tunes here, our favorites (but only just barely) are the songs in English: Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours," which has the theme from "Mission Impossible" segueing in and out of it; the amazingly arranged "Beatles Medley," the Michael Jackson hit "Human Nature," Freddie Mercury's Queen standard "Play the Game" and Sting's "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic." Other faves are the Latin classic "Tico-Tico No Fuba," "Aquarela Do Brasil," "Libertango," "Samba de Verao" and "Lembrei Do Ceara." But make no mistake, every song here is a stone vocal and rhythmic treat. BR6 ranks right up there with elite groups like Rajaton and the Real Group, and "For All" is one of the best CDs of the year!

Crossroads : The Simple Life - ON SALEnew

Review: After being crowned 2009 Barbershop Harmony Society Quartet Champions, Crossroads has become one of the most sought-after a cappella foursomes in the world, performing in Germany, France, Finland, the U.K., Spain and all over the United States. First coming together as a group in 2007, Tenor Fred, Lead Mike, Bass Jim and Baritone Brandon found that they shared a genuine friendship rooted in faith, family, harmony and a love of great music. And that has given them the opportunity to share their music with audiences all over the world! "The Simple life," their 3rd album, features 11 finely crafted and arranged tunes. Some of our favorites are the Ella Fitzgerald renditions of the title track, "Give Me the Simple Life" and the sultry lament "Angel Eyes;" the Deep River Boys' 1941 version of the 1876 song "My Grandfather's Clock;" Michael Buble's hit single "Hold On," Lerner & Lowe's classic "Gigi," Ron Miller and Orlando Murden's "For Once in My Life," the traditional hymn "Rock My Soul;" Cole Porter's "Blow, Gabriel, Blow" and Robert Lowry and Mrs. A. S. Hawkes' deeply moving "I Need Thee Every Hour." "The Simple life" is a powerful collection from one of Barbershop's most talented and beloved champions, Crossroads.

Honey Whiskey Trio : Stories of Love, Death and Spirits - ON SALEnew

Review: We hadn't seen Courtney, Ann and Christina, 2013 Harmony Sweeps Champs, for a year, until they beautifully hosted the 2014 Finals on May 17th, where we fell in love again! The three women are pictured on the album cover as blackbirds (signifying love), singing while perched on an antique shovel (signifying death) against the circular, nicely rendered background of the top of a keg (signifying spirits). The hand of each member of the trio is clear on each of these 12 finely crafted tunes, several of which drew ovations from our delighted audience at Marin Veterans Auditorium. Courtney arranged the lovely traditional "Duncan and Brady," Felice and Boudleaux Bryant's "All I Have to Do Is Dream," Sticks McGhee's "Wine Blues," Billy Mayhew's "It's a Sin to Tell a Lie" and she wrote favorites "Mockingbird," "Whiskey Wife," "I'll Be Your Coat" and "My Love." Ann wrote and arranged "Nothing But My Whiskey;" and Christine transcribed the traditional "Little Margaret," wrote "Wash Me Clean" and arranged the memorable Shape Note hymn, "Farther On." The three voices are well matched, the songs are powerful and emotional, and the trio sings with heart and passion. Between songs on stage Courtney thanked the audience, calling the 2013 Finals win the highlight of their lives. Well, the HWT gave such a moment to the 2013 audience and to all of us who saw them at the 2014 Finals-they have a rare gift. "Stories" is a winner from the first cut to the last!

Love Notes : From The Heart - ON SALEnew

Review: Ah, yes, we remember Sweet Adelines quartet The LoveNotes, Britanny, Mia, Caitlin and Stephanie from 2009 when they easily won the Bay Area Regional. We had previously seen them in the Regional as UnderAge, after they won the 2005 Sweet Adelines quartet championship for Young Women in Harmony. Now over 18 and calling themselves The LoveNotes, their 12 minute set, featuring a killer rendition of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," won them Audience Favorite and Second Place only to more experienced Sweet Adelines contenders Maxx Factor. The Notes kept rising, and today they're wearing the crowns and gold medals of the 2014 Sweet Adelines International Quartet Champions! Their debut CD "From the Heart" has 13 cuts, some favorites are "No, No Norman," "Hooked On This Skype Thing," "I Used to Call Him Baby," the moody Bond and Adele classic "Skyfall," "Something's Coming," "Danny Boy" and "If We Hold On Together," but every cut is a polished winner. Our girls next door have grown up, and they're the best in the world!

Martins : A Cappella - ON SALEnew

Review: Nearly two decades after releasing their first a cappella album - a perennial fan favorite and instant bestseller - the Dove Award-winning trio regroups for a recorded celebration of harmony and hymns. Heritage songs of the faith such as, "Come Thou Fount," and modern inspirational hits like, "The Prayer," and, "You'll Never Walk Alone," couple with the production artistry of southern gospel darlings Michael English and David Phelps, creating another vocal-only hit for the incomparable sibling singers.

OC Times : The Road - ON SALEnew

Review: Pride of Orange County, CA, Lead Sean Devine, formerly of the much-beloved Alley Cats, Tenor Shawn York, Baritone Patrick Claypool and Bass Cory Hunt of OC Times rose quickly in the Barbershop Harmony Society's International Quartet standings, placing 18th in 2004, 5th in 2005, 2nd in 2007 and finally winning Gold in 2008! Since then the group has been touring nationally and internationally extensively, finally pausing long enough in LA's The Greene Room for Marc Greene to work his magic on their aptly-titled third album, "The Road." There are 13 classic, feel-good tunes here, some of our favorites are Fats Domino's soulful hit "I'm Walkin'," Elvis Presley's "Good Luck Charm," Brian Wilson's poignant anthem "In My Room," The Tune Weavers' "Happy Happy Birthday Baby," Bobby Darin's hit "Beyond The Sea," Josh Turner's "Why Don't We Just Dance," Lennon & McCartney's "If I Fell," a sweet "Just My Imagination/My Girl" Medley, and Bob Dylan's "Wagon Wheel." Top-drawer arrangements, pitch-perfect harmonies, unbelievably soaring closing chords - the Times has it all. Want to listen to one of Barbershop's all time best do their stuff? Hit "The Road!"
