Grand Drive

Grand Drive

Pop/Rock - Verschenen op 1 april 2003 | Private Music

The English four-piece Grand Drive takes note from its alt-country counterparts (Wilco, Whiskeytown) and derives a sun-soaked Americana sound all its own on the band's self-titled U.S. debut. Grand Drive, which marks the quartet's first stateside release, collects 13 tracks from the group's three previous albums -- Road Music (1999), True Love and High Adventure (2000), and See the Morning In (2002) -- originally issued on BMG in the U.K., highlighting a lilting mix of soul, folk, and country. Brothers Danny and Julian Wilson are a solid musical pair; as songwriters, they're quick-witted and smart, and as musicians, they're exact and simple in shaping up classic bits of rock & roll. From the blue-eyed soul of "Needle in the Groove" to the honeyed acoustics of "Firefly," Grand Drive composes an honest, laid-back sound. Fiddles shyly chime throughout the bittersweet "A Little Like You," while "Sleepy" captures slow dancin' with classic '60s soul-pop. Grand Drive makes its biggest rock effort yet on "Tell It Like It Is." Like the majority of the album, its piano-driven, feel-good classic rock sound glows with a passion similar to Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young. The members of Grand Drive are earnest and pure with their craft, honing what's musically tried and true to them as a band. In the process, they recorded a pleasurable set of songs. Not bad for a bunch of Australian boys raised in London. © MacKenzie Wilson /TiVo

Dragonfly

Ziggy Marley

Reggae - Verschenen op 1 maart 2003 | Private Music

It's an interesting irony that as Ziggy Marley's singing voice ages and becomes more and more similar to that of his late father, the music he makes gets more and more distant from the reggae mainstream. And on his first album without the Melody Makers, his explorations go even further afield, leading him to spend far more time with hip-hop beats and spare rock & roll than one-drop reggae grooves. This is all to the good, or would be, if Marley showed that he can craft melodies and lyrics as well on his own as he did with his band. Unfortunately, he finds himself melodically adrift on Dragonfly. There are plenty of great beats and well-crafted instrumental textures (thanks in part to such high-profile guest musicians as Flea, David Lindley, and DJ Chris Kilmore), but the album offers not a single memorable tune, though "Looking," with its lilting highlife guitars, comes close. Lyrically, the album is an embarrassment. Almost every song is an exercise in bathetic platitude: "Do what you feel and don't you fool yourself," "I can't make you happy unless I am," "I've got to be true to myself," etc., and those lines are all from a single song. On the topic of conflict in the Middle East, he opines that "the only answer is to live as one," which Israelis and Palestinians alike may be forgiven for regarding as less than entirely helpful; the same goes for his observation that "what divides us is an illusion." Faced with this sort of nonsense, it's hard not to wonder why so many pop singers feel the need to comment on political and social issues about which they obviously know little or nothing. It's a question that would have been easier to avoid if the music were more compelling. © Rick Anderson /TiVo

Blue Gardenia

Etta James

Soul/Funk/R&B - Verschenen op 7 augustus 2001 | Private Music

The legendary blues singer indeed lives up to the silly cliché about being able to sing the phone book and make it sound rich, meaningful, and soulful. Still, it's always exciting to hear her tackle materials she's missed before. Here she shifts gears impressively into the intimate jazz club mode, performing beautifully arranged takes on a wide variety of standards (from "Come Rain or Come Shine" to "Cry Me a River") under the direction of producer John Snyder and arranger/pianist Cedar Walton. Those two gathered a handful of great jazz players and recorded the initial tracks without James, who had a touch of the flu. A few months later she had recovered and did the amazing vocal sessions which truly sound live and in synch with the music. Beginning with the redemptive theme of "This Bitter Earth," each song allows her to explore both tenderness and guttural emotions, even a little irony on clever twists like "He's Funny That Way." There are also perfectly placed spotlights for the featured musicians. "This Bitter Earth" and "He's Funny That Way" feature a thoughtful improvisation by Walton, while Duke Ellington's "In My Solitude" has a passionate interlude by tenor saxophonist Red Holloway. Most of the vocals are textured over a bed of simmering brass, adding to the old school big band flavor that creates the atmosphere for the project. It's certainly common for great artists to thank their parents for various influences, but James goes one step further on the title track, allowing her mom to sing the tune; mom is no match for her daughter, but it's still a unique touch that adds emotional dimension to an already emotionally rich affair. © Jonathan Widran /TiVo

That's For Sure

Jeffrey Osborne

R&B - Verschenen op 8 februari 2000 | Private Music

The great thing about adult contemporary music is that it provides a format for artists whose place on the pop charts in the '50s, '60s, '70s, and '80s was supplanted by the hip-hop and teenyboppers of the '90s and early '00s. Jeffrey Osborne is one such classic soul voice way past his prime but still cranking out appealing music that can't help but reach emotional depths because his voice is so rich, deep, and powerful. The tunes here are all slickly produced, from the cool and funky ode to love's second chance "2nd Time Around" to the dreamy ballad "That's for Sure." He's never been Barry White, but sexy funk ballads like "Come With Me" make perfect soundtracks to bedroom activities. Yet you can't get around the fact that, as strong as some of these tunes are, they pale next to the closing number, a live rendition of Osborne's first LTD hit "Love Ballad" -- which was also made famous by George Benson. The inclusion of this classic serves to remind new listeners that Osborne had a past; but longtime fans may feel a bit sad that none of his work on That's for Sure can approach his glories of the past. © Jonathan Widran /TiVo

The Very Best Of Yanni

Yanni

Klassiek - Verschenen op 8 november 1999 | Private Music

A handful of his millions of fans worldwide are bound to not have every big Yanni hit in their collection, and so this collection -- perhaps the final Private Music greatest-hits collection, because there have been various others -- certainly serves a functional purpose. Because of the seemingly simple compositional nature of his tunes and his intense showmanship, the Greek-born keyboardist has inspired his share of detractors, too. But these songs, from the classically inspired "Aria" (first heard on a series of British Airways commercials) to the exotic, Middle Eastern-flavored "Looking Glass" and lush, percussive "Swept Away" proves that if he's not the world's greatest technician, he can definitely write a strong melody. And that's what pop music is all about, so lighten up. The solo piano number "One Man's Dream" is now a precious new age classic, as is "In the Mirror." These tracks make the most emotional impact, even though most of the songs here that made him most popular are a bit more of the synth-created variety. If you are a big Yanni fan, check the track listing; chances are, you have all these songs somewhere else. Still, The Very Best of Yanni is a good primer on the man and his music. © Jonathan Widran /TiVo
