Naturally 7 : Both Sides Nownew

Review: Both Sides Now is Naturally 7's seventh studio-album. It represents a further remarkable development for the renowned vocal-group from NYC. Some of their previous biggest successes were notable interpretations of global hits from Phil Collins' "Feel It (In The Air Tonight)"; Coldplay's epic "Fix You" to their self-penned "Wall Of Sound". All of which they performed during three world tours with Michael Buble in 467 shows to over 4 million people in 25 countries. Both Sides Now is driven by wonderfully rich and warm harmonies in stellar vocal arrangements combined with Naturally 7's unique talents to perform a variety of instruments simply using their voices. The album contains of classics spanning over a century: from Anton Dvorak "Going Home", England's most patriotic Hymn "Jerusalem" to Roberta Flack's "The First Time, Ever I Saw Your Face", Sting's "Shape Of My Heart" featuring A Cappella-Youtube-sensation Peter Hollens, Paul McCartney's "Pipes Of Peace", the title-track: Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" all the way to a very special version of Adele's "Hello" feat. German megastar Helene Fischer, as well as the group's original song, which always closes their live-show: "Caught In The Moment" featuring Naturally 7 fan Pentatonix' Kevin Olusola on cello. Kevin's excitement to work with the band comes as no surprise, as many admire the seven as the modern "Godfathers" of the vocal genre.

Songlist: Jerusalem, Shape of My Heart , (I Need) Air, Going Home, Prince Igor, First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, Both Sides Now, Hello, Caught in the Moment, Pipes of Peace, Bridge Over Troubled Water

Various Arrangers : Novello Choral 60's Hitsnew

Review: The Mamas & The Papas' hymn to the West Coast state California Dreamin' was actually written in chilly New York City by John and Michelle Phillips before they even formed the band that made them famous. Simon & Garfunkel were New York through and through and Simon's jaunty song about the Queensboro Bridge - aka Feelin' Groovy - uses its local colloquial name. Skeeter Davis, born Mary Frances Penick, was the survivor of a car crash that killed her singing partner Betty Jack Davis. They had enjoyed some success as The Davis Sisters but The End Of The World was the biggest hit of Skeeter's subsequent solo career. In My Room saw The Beach Boys moving indoors from all that sun and sand and recording one of their most reflective and lovely songs. Meanwhile the British invasion was threatening the pop status quo in America and Can't Buy Me Love, from the film Hard Day's Night, gave The Beatles yet another number one in the US charts.

Songlist: California Dreamin', Feelin' Groovy, The End of the World, In My Room, Can't Buy Me Love

Deke Sharon : Songs from Pitch Perfect 3new

Review: The Grammy award winning Dance Pop song "Toxic", originally sung by Britney Spears has been called the one song moviegoers will be humming on their way out of Pitch Perfect 3. In this exciting arrangement for the Bellas, the strings and guitar lines from the original are all covered by the vocals. This is an impressive offering for the women in your program. "Sit Still, Look Pretty" - Originally released by teen pop sensation Daya and then re-energized in the movie Pitch Perfect 3, this is a song of empowerment for girls and women. In her own words, Daya states that this is a song about a girl that goes after her own dreams and really fights for what she wants. All of these good vibes wrapped up in a dynamite pop a cappella arrangement. "Cheap Thrills" - In Pitch Perfect 3, the Bellas are all grown up but not having much luck finding work as musicians. This up beat song reminds them and all of us that you don't need money to have a good time. Making music and dancing are the best remedies for fun. That message will resonate with your singers and your audiences.

Songlist: Toxic, Sit Still, Look Pretty, Cheap Thrills

Blue Jupiter : Twisted Broadwaynew

Review: 2017 release. Blue Jupiter, a New York City-based contemporary a cappella group, announces the release of Twisted Broadway Volume 1 (An A Cappella Album).

Listeners will immediately recognize the hits from classic shows like Wicked, Pippin, Porgy and Bess, The Sound of Music, Chicago, The Wizard of Oz, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and more. But they've never heard them like this before. Where groups like Post Modern Jukebox, deliver modern songs in old fashioned styles, Blue Jupiter prefers time travel in the opposite direction. Twisted Broadway features classic Broadway songs with a wickedly modern, contemporary a cappella sound.

Songlist: I Got the Sun in the Mornin', Magic to Do, My Favorite Things, Over the Rainbow, Summertime, Defying Gravity, Close Every Door, All That Jazz, Whatever Lola Wants, Put on a Happy Face, Let It Go, Over the Rainbow (Reprise)

Review: The group competed in and won the fourth season of The Sing-Off on NBC in 2013 and have gone on the great success with a steady touring schedule and an ever-growing fan base. The lead tenor, who fronts the group and sings most of the solos, is Austin Brown. Tenor is sung by Rob Lundquist, baritone harmony by Adam Chance, and Tim Foust sings bass with vocal percussion provided by beatboxer Adam Rupp. Although Brown is Home Free's primary soloist, all of the other members occasionally sing solos as well. This is a top-notch recording that shows their tight harmonies and impressive arrangements.

Cliff Duren and David Wise : Spotlight A Cappellanew

Review: Hearing just one gifted voice sing an inspired piece of music can be a glorious, moving experience. Hearing it accompanied by musical instruments played by skillful musicians can be even more exciting. But...put together a group of exceptional Human Voices, joined in perfect harmony, skillfully arranged and executed, and a cappella music can take us to even greater heights of musical expression, soul-stirring emotion, and musical appreciation!

The music in this book acts as a SPOTLIGHT illuminating the brilliance and exceptional qualities of the Human Voice, made even more brilliant and exceptional by virtue of the fact that these songs magnify and glorify God. SPOTLIGHT features a group of voices weaving a tapestry of sound and movement, textures and lyrics...spotlighting the Human Voice, yes, but even more significantly, spotlighting the One Who created those voices and gave us the gift of all music!

Arranged by gifted arrangers Cliff Duren and David Wise (both of whom have their own special love of a cappella music!), SPOTLIGHT is both balanced and diverse in its content, including Hymns, Worship Songs, CCM Songs, Christmas and Patriotic Songs, being done in traditional a cappella styles and in the fresh, contemporary style of groups like Pentatonix.

Songlist: 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord), The Solid Rock, Hosanna with Hosanna (Praise Is Rising), How Deep the Father's Love for Us, God Is on the Move, Near the Cross, Christmas Medley , The Star-Spangled Banner

Stephen Sieck : Teaching with Respect: Inclusive Pedagogy for Choral Directorsnew

Review: This is a book for choral directors who find themselves in conversations they might not feel ready to have. Teaching with Respect prompts us to ask deeper questions about the language we use, about systems of power, about our heritage and inheritance. When we examine our teaching, we may find that, while we do not intentionally act with racism, sexism, or bigotry, we may be complicit in adopting systems and language that marginalize and discriminate. But since we want to be the kind of directors that foster artistic communities built on respect, we must be willing to ask such questions. And the burden cannot be on our singers who are being marginalized to teach us a more respectful path; it is on us to learn how it is that we are marginalizing. In this book we look closely at our teaching strategies. How does our repertoire and instruction intersect with our singers' identities, specifically their learning abilities, gender, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, and race? How do we engage with our audience? The book suggests an ethical approach to teaching choral music that is centered on respecting the singers in front of us. Readers will discover ways to maintain and elevate their artistic standards of excellence while also expanding their mindset.
