Data Lords is an expansive and brilliantly realized project, presenting two starkly contrasting views of the digital and natural world and whatever your own take on that is, the music is compelling. Schneider’s writing is remarkable; the performance she conjures with the orchestra in places is quite extraordinary.
Previously unissued solo piano set which slumbered in the archives for over 26 years and now sees the light of day for the first time.

Four hours of previously unissued, premier-league music by Charles Mingus live @ Bremen 1964 & 1975! Audio quality is excellent.

Recently chosen as the best jazz artist and bass player by the 85th Readers Poll of Downbeat magazine, the American jazz bassist, composer and arranger is one of the foremost jazz bassists of his generation. McBride has appeared on more than 300 recordings as a sideman, and is a six-time Grammy Award winner. Whether behind the bass or away from it, Christian McBride is always of the music. From jazz (Freddie Hubbard, Sonny Rollins, J.J. Johnson, Ray Brown, Milt Jackson, McCoy Tyner, Roy Haynes, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny) to R&B (Isaac Hayes, Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole, James Brown) to pop/rock (Sting, Paul McCartney, Carly Simon) to hip-hop/neo-soul (The Roots, D'Angelo, Queen Latifah) to classical (Kathleen Battle, Edgar Meyer, Shanghai Quartet), he is a luminary with one hand ever reaching for new heights, and the other extended in fellowship—and perhaps the hint of a challenge—inviting us to join him.
