July's new Studio Master releases
19 July 2013
It has been four years since jazz trumpeter Terence Blanchard has recorded an album under his own name, so does he have the energy and creativity in him for a solo album? Absolutely! 'Magnetic' manages to fuse post-bop, traditional jazz, and electronica creating an atmosphere more like a science fiction film than you may expect on a jazz record. 'Magnetic' would be a superb addition to anyone's Studio Master collection.
'Turn All Memory to White Noise' is Laki Mera's spine-tingling and heart-stopping follow up to 'The Proximity Effect'. An album that artfully fuses electronics, strings, found sounds, ear-worm melodies and Laura Donnelly's bewitching voice.
Cruinn's new self-titled album is a diverse mix of songs from Ireland, England, Hungary which are translated into Gaelic, as well as self-composed songs and traditional Gaelic ones. 'Cruinn' was produced by the acclaimed producer Jim Sutherland who has previously produced music for the soundtrack of the 2012 Disney/Pixar film - Brave.
