Singer/songwriter Jennifer Warnes celebrates her 50th anniversary as a recording artist with Another Time, Another Place, her first recording since 2001's The Well. Since the 1990s, Warnes has worked only when she's wanted to -- a decade passed between The Well and its predecessor, The Hunter. In this century, she has lent her voice to recordings by Sonny Landreth, Chris Hillman, Leonard Cohen, and his son Adam Cohen. Warnes and longtime collaborator Roscoe Beck (Cohen's bassist and music director and her own producer on Famous Blue Raincoat and The Hunter), began working in Austin and Los Angeles in 2015. But a string of profound losses -- a niece, two sisters, a longtime manager, ex-boyfriend, her dog and Cohen -- sidetracked the sessions several times. Aside from or perhaps because of all that tragedy, Another Time, Another Place offers a stellar reflection of Warnes the interpretive singer. She co-wrote only one tune here, the lilting, Americana road song "The Boys and Me" with Michael Smotherman. The rest are covers that range from country to jazz to pop, all delivered with her sensual, expressive contralto. She opens with a completely revisioned version of Pearl Jam's "Just Breathe." Amid a weave of strings, upright bass, acoustic and electric guitars, and poignantly played B-3 and French horn, she offers the song's melody with bittersweet knowledge and its projective lyric as if singing into a mirror for reassurance. A breezy and bluesy read of the jazz standard "Tomorrow Night" -- cut by everyone from Lonnie Johnson to Bob Dylan to the Texas Hill Country's own Johnny Nicholas -- features Beck's strolling upright bassline atop drums (Vinnie Colaiuta), percussion (Lenny Castro), and Jim Cox's subtly swelling Hammond as she leans hard into the tune's elegant swing. Mickey Newbury's "So Sad" is delivered with warm, rounded edges as Greg Leisz's pedal steel winds around the grain in her smoky vocal to underscore each moment of loneliness and pain in the wake of a lover's departure, and those of friends who've shuffled off this mortal coil. Warnes convincingly weds jazz, cabaret, and musette in her version of "I See Your Face Before Me." Landreth appears on resonator and electric slide guitar on a swampy yet altogether cinematic take on Ray Bonneville's "I Am the Big Easy," complete with a laid-back second-line rhythm. Two tracks later she offers "Back Where I Started," another country-esque soul number by the Tedeschi-Trucks Band. The tension between emotional conviction and sweetness in its lyric is a perfect match for Warnes' unflinching honesty and vulnerability. While Marcus Hummon's "Freedom" wasn't written for Warnes, it could have been. Backed by an all-star choir that numbers Ruthie Foster and Blondie Chaplin in its quintet, it relays the notion of freedom as both a state of abundance and an illustration of loss. As a result of these intimate performances, Another Time, Another Place is return to the world after a prolonged period of solitude and grief. Warnes offers these songs with the same aplomb, grace, discipline, passion, and dignity that she has displayed her entire career, and imbues these songs with new shades of meaning in the process.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.

Jordi Savall: Music, life and recording

It was a rainy October night in the Bugey. On October nights, it's always raining in the Bugey. It was around midnight. There were fifty of us, waiting in the cold, the wet and the rapt silence at the Ambronay Festival. All of a sudden, and without a sound, Jordi Savall was there, sopping wet in a white raincoat, like Bogart in Casablanca, holding onto a hard case shaped like a human body. Moving slowly, he drew out not a person but a viola de gamba, which he started tuning and stringing with the greatest care. And then the miracle descended upon the auditorium.
