Penty more Cd reviews below...
OK,so we're exactly one Cd into the list and we're into the re-releases already. Yeah,it's gonna be that kind of week. Even with the underwhelming list of new albums for the Christmas season,it's pretty obvious they weren't holding anything back for this week.
Martin Taylor - Portraits and Two's Company
Here are two reissues from acoustic archtop master Martin Taylor. Even though he,at times,gets dangerously close to smooth jazz,there is no denying his skill.
Stephane Grappelli - Reunion and Celebrating Grappelli
Martin Taylor also appears on these reissues. Grappellis band is where Simpson got his start and as one might guess,these are much more in the gypsy jazz style.
Kein Hass Da - Hirntrafo / Bad Brains Transformation
I know,I know,it sounds like I'm making it up...a German tribute to Bad Brains? If you're one of those folks who miss 80's punk,give this a listen. More passion and attitude than twenty mall punk bands and quite possibly the best punk album of 2010.
