Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Saturday, March 27, 1965. The man who takes the Parisian concert venue by storm does it with delicacy and cool. His playing has however revolutionized his instrument, in a violent way even… Since Charlie Christian and Django Reinhardt, guitar hadn’t been abused this way. Especially since here, the instigator of this tsunami both stylistic and formal performs in a configuration that resembles him, without ornamentation, nor commercial decoration. The Wes Montgomery from this unprecedented live performance is frightening and especially great, it is also extremely sophisticated…

Surrounded by pianist Harold Mabern, double bass player Arthur Harper and drummer Jimmy Lovelace, the guitarist from Indianapolis finds the perfect balance between his extraordinary skills (to die for on To Wane, a theme penned by Mabern in tribute to Wayne Shorter) and the great originality of his melodic approach. On Full House, ‘Round Midnight and Blue 'N Boogie/West Coast Blues, Wes even welcomes tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin, in order to make the party even more memorable. As for the repertoire, he revisits themes from his studio albums for the label Riverside (Jingles, 'Round Midnight, Twisted Blues…), but of which he gives here deeper interpretations. It’s a recording that is as much intended for the guy’s aficionados as for the novices wanting to grasp the art of a great colorist that is gone far too soon, in 1968 at only 45… © MZ/Qobuz

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.

Prog Rock in 10 Albums

Influence is a shapeless thing, moving and rearranging based on sounds from the past and how they align with sounds from the present. In the case of progressive rock, a genre relocated from the pop charts to sheet music stands and art rock-favored stereos over the past four decades, influence has shifted in a similar way—later records that expanded the lexicon have lapped previous records with the incorporation of new styles, cultures and their corresponding sounds. Prog may not be burning up the rock charts, but you can see the everlasting influence of the genre in bands ranging from Tool to Kanye West and beyond. With that said, here are ten crucial progressive rock releases for 2021 and beyond.

The Struggles of Nina Simone

Although today she is seen as one of the most original voices in jazz and soul, Nina Simone's life was anything but a smooth and gentle climb to the top. The woman who dreamed of being the first black American classical pianist had to struggle against others, against her own family, and even against herself.
