In 2004, he said that his album Solo Piano was a project that had relieved him of a variety of complexes that he had had about the relationship of his music to his character. How to sum up this singer, musician, entertainer? This record with a strong whiff of Satie solved a lot of problems, Jason Beck alias Chilly Gonzalez said at the time... A good decade later, this brilliant Canadian Zebedee bounds between passports, costumes, locations, eras and styles, always one step ahead of getting pigeonholed into a single role or genre. But he regularly returns to this solo, introspective work, as if compelled. This time, Solo Piano III rounds off what he describes as a trilogy. "The musical purity of Solo Piano III is not an antidote for our times", he says, "it is a reflection of all the beauty and ugliness around us. "


Less monolithic than its predecessors, this final volume racks up a series of refined nods and winks with a rare intelligence. Satie and Chopin are never far away, and the same goes for Liszt, Bach or, more recently, Chico Marx of the Marx Brothers, the childhood idol of his to whom he dedicated the well-named Chico. Each track on this timeless record is dedicated to one of his "underdogs". Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk, Fanny Mendelssohn, sister of Felix Mendelssohn, Rudolf Steiner, founder of anthroposophy, composer and writer Hildegard von Bingen, aviator Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly over the Atlantic in 1928, but also groups like Migos and Beach House or Conchita Cintron, the first woman rejoneadora: all are crowned with this pianist's laurels. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Randy Newman in 10 Songs

From painting detailed and often biting portraits of humanity with a skeptic’s brush to carrying on the family business of film music composition, Randy Newman’s catalog is the American Songbook. Here are the ten—well, eleven—songs that demonstrate his preternatural ability to find the real emotion in everyday life.

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.
