Branford Marsalis's debut as a leader is ambitious yet consistently successful. On "Scenes of the City," his narrative is in the same spirit of some of Charles Mingus's recordings of the 1950s. Otherwise the music is in the modern mainstream vein with Marsalis (on tenor and soprano) hinting strongly at Wayne Shorter and John Coltrane, along with a touch of Sonny Rollins. The backup crew includes such notable young lions as pianist Mulgrew Miller and Kenny Kirkland, bassist Charnett Moffett, and drummers Jeff "Tain" Watts and Marvin "Smitty" Smith in addition to bassist Ron Carter. It's an impressive start to a notable career. ~ Scott Yanow

Bruce Springsteen, Daft Punk, Electric Light Orchestra, Pharrell… Columbia Records boasts one of the most eclectic and star-studded music catalogues in existence, and is undoubtedly a huge supporter of Hi-Res audio. Founded all the way back in 1887, the company is now the oldest surviving brand name in recorded sound, and only the second to produce recorded records. Over 125 years later, it is safe to say that Columbia Records, now part of the Sony Music Group, has established itself a timeless icon in music.
