Sings finds the great Beninese vocalist Angélique Kidjo fronting the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, conducted by Gast Waltzing. This is a studio offering that reflects the highlights of a series of now legendary 2011 concerts between them. Recorded at the Philharmonie Luxembourg, in New York, and in France, the program is a lively and unusual retrospective from Kidjo's career. Along with the orchestra, Kidjo is joined by her own band and guest musicians including guitarist Lionel Loueke, bassist Christian McBride, and backing vocalists. Arranged by Waltzing and guitarist David Laborier, the material comprises thorough revisionings of songs central to Kidjo's catalog, including dramatic presentations of "Malaika," "Loloye," "Kelele," the traditional "Otishe," "Nanae," and her gorgeous "Naima" (not to be confused with John Coltrane's tune of the same title). While the music is certainly far "busier" and more florid than the work on her earlier records, this presentation is thoroughly lovely and her big contralto gets right on top of the orchestra, while the rhythms sound as organic as ever. Two interesting covers on the set include a deeply soulful reading of Carlos Santana's "Samba Pa Ti," with a great flügelhorn solo by Waltzing, and Sidney Bechet and Ferdinand Bonifay's "Petite Fleur" arranged in a manner that pays homage to Kidjo's idol, Édith Piaf. Perhaps the greatest asset of this particular recording is how it reaffirms what we already knew: that Kidjo can deliver any song in any setting and remain iconic.

Stan Getz à l’heure brésilienne

En mars 1964, le label Verve publie un chef-d’œuvre cosigné par l’Américain Stan Getz et le Brésilien João Gilberto, qui popularisera la bossa-nova aux quatre coins du monde et relancera la carrière du saxophoniste. Le disque reste encore aujourd’hui le sommet de la fusion entre jazz et musique brésilienne.

Compositrices, ces méconnues

De Sappho de Mytilène à Kaija Saariaho en passant par Clara Schumann, plusieurs femmes ont su déjouer les codes machistes du milieu pour passer à la composition. Si le paysage de la musique classique a largement été dominé par les hommes ces derniers siècles, les œuvres de leurs consœurs, pionnières ou contemporaines, sont tout aussi passionnantes. Défense et illustration de la composition au féminin en onze portraits musicaux.

Le reggaeton en 10 albums

Mélange de dancehall jamaïcain, de hip-hop américain, de rythmes caribéens et de tchatche en espagnol, le reggaeton a, depuis sa naissance dans les années 90, donné plusieurs coups de butoir pour forcer la porte de la pop music. Des premières mixtapes de DJ Playero au “Barrio Fino” de Daddy Yankee, en passant par le “Tra-Tra-Tra” de Don Chezina, les musiciens de Porto Rico et leur succursale colombienne de Medellin ont tout tenté pour conquérir le monde et y sont parvenus dans la dernière décennie à travers Luis Fonsi, J. Balvin ou Bad Bunny. Retour en 10 albums sur l’histoire d’un genre qui n’a pas fini d’être populaire.
