Billie Holiday : Pro Vocal Series

Billie Holiday (born Eleanora Fagan; April 7, 1915 - July 17, 1959) was an American jazz singer and songwriter. Nicknamed Lady Day by her loyal friend and musical partner Lester Young, Holiday was a seminal influence on jazz and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo. Above all, she was admired for her deeply personal and intimate approach to singing. Critic John Bush wrote that she "changed the art of American pop vocals forever." She co-wrote only a few songs, but several of them have become jazz standards, notably "God Bless the Child", "Don't Explain", and "Lady Sings the Blues". She also became famous for singing jazz standards written by others, including "Easy Living" and "Strange Fruit." This Pro Vocal series contains the lyrics, melody, and chord symbols for eight of her hit songs. The CD contains demos for listening, and then separate backing tracks so you can sing along. The CD is playable on any CD, but it is also enhanced for PC and Mac computer users so you can adjust the recording to any pitch without changing the tempo! Perfect for home rehearsal, parties, auditions, corporate events, and gigs without a backup band. Or for singing just for the fun of it!

Songlist: Crazy He Calls Me, Don't Explain, Don't Worry About Me, Easy Living, God Bless' The Child, Just One More Chance, Solitude, Trav'lin' Light

Elektra Women's Choir : Pure Elektra : 00  1 CD : Morna Edmundson

This recording has two intended audiences: one of listeners who are attracted to exhilarating and moving sounds of fine choral music, and another of choral conductors who are looking to discover new repertoire for their own ensembles. Close your eyes, open your ears, and take a deep breath of Pure Elektra!

Hi-Lo's with Rosemary Clooney : Ring Around Rosie  : 00  1 CD : 6460

Hi-Lo's with Rosemary Clooney : Ring Around Rosie

Rosemary's "friends" on "Ring Around Rosie" are none other than the Hi-Lo's! (She is accompanied by Harry James on "Hollywood's Best.") The dozen songs on "Ring Around Rosie," though not a cappella, are some of the loveliest in the canon of American popular song. Clooney's straightforward and unmannered style is immediate and engaging, in contrast to the Hi-lo's more modern jazz phrasing; together, they offer the best of both. For example, the Hi-lo's trade verses with Rosie on "How About You," and outline chords behind her with brilliantly hued swipes; when they harmonize, as they do, fittingly, on "Together," one can feel the appreciation flowing. Her "Everything Happens To Me" conveys the song's gloomy irony by virtue of the plainness of its delivery. The Hi-Lo's are sans Rosie on "I Could Write A Book," "Coquette" and "Solitude"; the latter two are presently unavailable on any other recording. "Hollywood's Best" features big band arrangements of movie themes, and Clooney's first million-selling record, "Come On-A My House."

Songlist: Doncha Go Way Mad, Moonlight Becomes You, Love Letters, I Could Write A Book, I'm In the Mood For Love, Coquette, Together, Everything Happens To Me, Solitude, What Is There To say, I'm Glad There is You, How About You?, Plus "Hollywood's Best" with Harry James (12 tracks)

London Sinfonietta Voices : Gyorgy Ligeti - A Cappella Choral Works : 00  1 CD : Terry Edwards : 07464623052-7 : SK62305

London Sinfonietta Voices : Gyorgy Ligeti - A Cappella Choral Works

Terry Edwards conducts the London Sinfonietta Voices in 37 striking a cappella choral works by noted Hungarian composer Gyorgy Ligeti. Influenced by Bartok and Kodaly, and by Hungarian and Romanian folk music, Ligeti experienced censorship of his work by the Soviets, finally fleeing with his wife to Austria after the crushing of the Hungarian uprising in 1956. Since then his work has found a much wider audience in Germany, Sweden and California. All songs are a cappella and sung in Hungarian, but the extensive liner notes have English translations of all the lyrics. Some of our favorites are the folk tunes "Haj, Ifjusag!" (Heigh, Youth!) which sings lustily of the battle of the sexes, "Hortobagy," which sings of life on the farm, and "Kallai Kettos," (Double Dance from Kallo), which sings of love in Autumn, and the fact that all the singers' relatives and in-laws are still alive and kicking. "Choral Works" is a complex, powerful, poetic choral work by a gifted composer and a wonderful choral group.

Songlist: Night, Morning, Far from Home, Solitude, Two Canons, Kings of Bethlehem, The Fugitive, Wedding Song, Songs from Inaktelke, Songs from Matraszentimre, Widow Papai, Three Fantasies after Holderlin, Hungarian Etudes, Heigh, Youth!, Easter, Hortobagy, From A High Mountain Rock, Double-Dance from Kallo
