Thanks to the hard work carried out in cooperation with recording studios as well as an increasing number of music labels (Plus Loin Music, Bee Jazz, Ambronay Editions, Zig Zag Territoires, ECM, Mirare, Aeolus, Ondine, Winter & Winter, Laborie, etc.), Qobuz now offers a rapidly-growing selection of new releases and back catalogue records in 24-bit HD quality. These albums reproduce exactly the sound from the studio recording, and offer a more comfortable listening experience that exceeds the sound quality of a CD (typically \"reduced\" for mastering at 44.1kHz/16-bit). \"Qobuz HD\" files are DRM-free and are 100% compatible with both Mac and PC. Moving away from the MP3-focused approach that has evolved over recent years at the expense of sound quality, Qobuz provides the sound calibre expected by all music lovers, allowing them to enjoy both the convenience and quality of online music.

Note 24-bit HD albums sold by Qobuz are created by our labels directly. They are not re-encoded using SACD and we guarantee their direct source. In order to continue on this path, we prohibit any tampering with the product.

When the first Star Wars film came out 40 years ago, film-maker George Lucas showed real nerve when he chose a strongly symphonic colour for the soundtrack, and picked out a composer who knew his classics (and his Wagner in particular). At the time, early electronic music was almost compulsory in science-fiction films. In 2017, the presence of John Williams in the opening credits of a Star Wars film doesn't have quite the same audacious feeling, and the thrill the audience feels when the prologue starts to roll derives mostly from the legendary status of both the music and its octogenarian writer. It has been asserted that in fact the real "last Jedi" in the film is John Williams! All the same, upon the release of this eighth episode, some voices have been raised (critic Michel Ciment's in particular) to insist that John Williams has served his time and that he should give way to a younger composer. But rather than getting bogged down in the question of "the age of the captain", we should look at the important thing: the score for this eighth work is very interesting. In particular, it shows up a fascinating dichotomy between the archetypal nature of the musical themes (very clearly illustrating a character or concept) and Williams's extremely subtle way of developing them, to say nothing of his indisputable skill with orchestration. Beyond the many epic pieces on this soundtrack, (The Battle of Crait, The Fathiers, etc.), special mention must go to the majestic Ahch-To Island, which sees a "retired" Luke Skywalker who wants to live out the rest of his days in peace and serenity. Moreover, listeners will be pleasantly surprised to find, nestled away within this remarkably written and well-controlled score, Canto Bight, a jazzy theme with a South American flavour (which at points pastiches Brazil), with a steel drum section! This is a piece which proves that John Williams is fully at ease with all musical genres and all orchestral colours. © NM / Qobuz

Melvin Van Peebles' Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song was an important film that paved the way for black filmmakers in American cinema in general, and in the 1970s blaxploitation genre in particular. Van Peebles hasn't been nearly as well known as a musician as he has a filmmaker, but he did compose the soundtrack, which was performed by Earth, Wind & Fire, who had then just released their first album. Heard on its own, the soundtrack, unlike Superfly or Shaft, is not a significant musical achievement. It's serviceable period funk-soul, both instrumental and vocal, sprinkled with some dialog from the film, although it did make number 13 on the soul album charts. "Hoppin' John" is an obvious James Brown-inspired tune, though sung with considerably less heat than Brown himself would have mustered. "Come On Feet Do Your Thing" is the cut most like Van Peebles' pre-rap excursions on A&M Records, which is unsurprising, as he had already recorded it on his A&M album Ain't Supposed to Die a Natural Death. Sweet Sweetback's has been reissued as one disc of the two-CD release The Melvin Van Peebles Collection, which also includes the 1972 original cast recording of Don't Play Us Cheap, the Broadway production (originally a film) that Van Peebles staged, and for which he also composed the music. ~ Richie Unterberger
