Title:
Axiom
Release Date: 11/20/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (A18) $18.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 11-27-20) DiN label boss Ian Boddy has been releasing music since 1980. In the last 40 years he has seen Electronic Music grow and evolve beyond recognition. From analogue/modular synthesis to completely digital and back again. The six tracks on "Axiom" reference Boddy's musical routes with its pulsating sequencer passages that hark back to the Berlin School of Tangerine Dream, most especially on the track "Nitro". The self referential track "Boddy Love" is an in-joke with a nod to a classic 70's Klaus Schulze album which features gorgeous melodic lines that grow to a climax before fading into the distance. "Icon" with its subsonic bass throb and orchestral strings climbs to a sonic summit before crashing down to the sublime piece "The Fallen". Closing out the album, the title track bookends the opener "Omicron" with a slice of Synthwave that has it all: analogue sequences, vintage drum machines and soaring chords.

This is a notable genre score from one of 2020's most celebrated horror offerings. Produced by the composer, and mastered by Tom Hutten, this is a limited edition CD release of 1000 units featuring bewitching art direction by Dan Goldwasser and exclusive, in-depth liner notes by writer Daniel Schweiger.

Testimony
Release Date: 11/20/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

"Once in a great while, a musician emerges with such authority and such seemingly effortless originality that his place in the front ranks of his instrument is unquestioned. So it is with David Friesen." - Nat Hentoff. A major international jazz figure for over 50 years, bassist-composer David Friesen continues his unflagging process of creating new defining works, with the ambitious, expansive, and deeply personal musical explorations found on Testimony. Through the desire to better understand his Mother's Ukrainian heritage, and with inspired leg-work from his Czech-based assistant, Natalie Digtyar, Friesen found himself on a 2015 tour of family landmarks in Smila, Ukraine, fully researched and led by a television crew and the local historical museum. Meeting Oleksandr Pirozhenko, director of the National Academic Symphonic Band of Ukraine, set in motion the collaboration heard here, beginning with a sold-out 2016 "homecoming" concert in Smila's Concert Hall, followed by this live recording from Kiev's National Philharmonic Hall in December, 2018. Arrangements of Friesen's profoundly spiritual compositions unfold, offering passages exploding with orchestral grandeur alongside lone whispers from solo piano, vibes or bass, and intimate quartet vignettes, all reflecting the myriad emotions exposed through his journey of ancestral discovery.

"Jihee Heo has done for me that rare and beautiful thing I value and cherish most about incredible music, she has inspired me." - Kirk Whalum. Raised in South Korea, pianist-composer Jihee Heo studied in Amsterdam before receiving her Masters from the Manhattan School of Music in 2013. Now with a decade ensconced in New York's music scene, Jihee found inspiration for producing this album of alternately pastoral and grooving trio music through Robert Henry's classic treatise for artists, "Art Spirit." Reciting passages in the opening track, "Are You Ready?," the sense of offering a vision into her musical process and deep involvement with 'the moment' informs the 8 artfully melodic original compositions. Along with the wide-ranging talents of drummer Rodney Green, who also co-produces, and bassist Marty Kenney, rapper Saidu Ezike voices Jihee's ambivalence toward her New York experience on "Trust," followed by what could be considered a love note to the city on the instrumental "Oh, New York." "Jihee is a very special artist. She uses her music to paint vivid pictures and take the listener on a journey they're sure to enjoy." - Rodney Green

While Marion’s Away Dorothy And Paula Play
Release Date: 11/20/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

When Glenn Miller’s star vocalist, Marion Hutton, announced that she was taking maternity leave. It was a shock to Glenn. He immediately started looking around for a replacement. The ideal choice seemed to be Dorothy Claire, a pert, vivacious, extroverted blonde who’d been singing with some of Gienn’s friends in the Bob Crosby band, before joining Bobby Byrne’s new outfit. Glenn made an offer and Byrne burned. Dorothy accepted. A few weeks later Bobby started a suit against Glenn. Bobby Byrne’s lawyer had kept putting on the pressure, and soon Glenn felt the fight wasn’t worth it. One night he ran into Bobby in a Columbus, Ohio, hotel, and he agreed to Dorothy’s return if Bobby would withdraw his charges. Dorothy’s last Chesterfield Show in St. Louis, Missouri, was on March 20th 1941 when she sang Ciri-Biri-Bin. She edged way from dance bands to sing in Chicago night clubs like Chez Paree and Palmer House. Coming to New York, she she sang at the Copacabama and the Bing Crosby radio show. She had her own radio programme in New York, toured in vaudeville and appeared on television. On Broadway she starred in the 1947 production of “Finian’s Rainbow”. Dorothy Claire died on July 4th 2020, In March 1941 in Dorothy’s place Glenn hired Paula Kelly, the pretty wife of Hal Dickinson the leader of The Modernaires. She had been singing with the Al Donahue Band. Paula was the band’s brightest star. In 1938 she had sung the band’s record of Jeepers Creepers into the No.1 spot and given it six other entries into the charts. Back in March 1941 Paula joined Hal, Glenn and the band in St. Louis for the lengthy train jôiurney to Hollywood where they started work on the movie, “Sun Valley Serenade” on March 24th. The next day Paula, backed by the Modernaires sang La Cucaracha on the Chesterfield Show. On this CD you can hear a dozen more examples of Paula’s attractive singing, including Chattanooga Choo Choo, which spent twenty-five weeks in the charts, nine of them at No.1 and becoming a million-seller.

List Price: (B29) $29.98 

(3-CD set) The first half of the 20th century, vocal group singing was one of the most progressive and inventive of African American arts. In the absence of instruments, singers had to work much harder to make sure that their own distinctive sound grabbed and held the attention of the audiences and record buyers. The leaders in the field were groups like the Soul Stirrers, the Flying Clouds of Detroit, the Southern Sons, the Pilgrim Travelers, and the Wings Over Jordan. Some of their rarest recordings are included in the 3-CD box set. Notes by Ray Templeton.

Plays Irving Berlin And Other Great Composers

Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

Peter Yorke was born on December 4th 1902 to a printer and his wife in North London. He showed musical ability as soon as he was able to walk, and progressed swiftly through his piano lessons. However, as soon as he heard the organ in his local Church of England, he wanted to become an organist. As the late Frank Wappat, the beloved broadcaster of the North of England, put it, “The organ for him was more than a piano; one could paint pictures with it. It was in effect a small orchestra of tonal sounds.” Peter became a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists, and organist and choirmaster of the church when he was eighteen, but he was already being seduced by the new dance band sounds of the 1920s. So Peter returned to his piano stool to practise syncopation and dance tempo..In July 1927 Peter enlisted in Percival Mackey’s Band, switching the next year to George Fisher at the Kit Kat Club. In September 1928 he crossed over to Jay Whidden at the Carlton Club. In January 1929 Jack Hylton hired him as pianist-arranger. Three years later the first two records bearing the billing , “Peter Yorke and his Orchestra”, were issued. Peter used Hylton musicians for these “Pantomime Hits”. Suffering from the stress of touring the UK and Europe with the Hylton Band, Peter left the great Show Band leader to form his own orchestra to broadcast on European commercial radio. In 1936 he landed another top job, chief arranger for Louis Levy and his Gaumont British Film Orchestra. This is where he developed his unique concert style sounds and orchestrations, recording selections of film songs for Louis on Columbia and HMV, as well as on BBC National Radio, often backing pre-war broadcasts of Arthur Tracy, the Street Singer and Sam Browne and Judy Shirley. Louis Levy’s Orchestra began to sound like the Peter Yorke Orchestra which would emerge in 1947.” However, World War II intervened and Peter volunteered for the RAF in 1942, and was eventually transferred to the broadcasting section of the three services. He was demobilised in 1946 and reformed his orchestra. In 1947 he received work with Columbia Records backing vocalists such as Steve Conway, and using the pool musicians to form a large 30 to 40 piece concert orchestra known as Peter Yorke and his Concert Orchestra. This coupled with a regular BBC series called Sweet Serenade using the Orchestra every Sunday brought him the fame he deserved. Peter then became Musical Director of EMI, accompanying singers such as Donald Peers, and musicians of the calibre of Eddie Calvert. Peter Yorke was probably the greatest arranger, orchestrator and conductor of light popular and light classical music that this country has ever produced. He died on February 2nd 1966 at the age of 63.
