Gorgeous and seductively simple, Batist manages to fuse jazz, classical and the subtleties of world and Latin flavors into a rich sonic mosaic. Much like the genres they so effortlessly transcend, this trio crosses over the artistic limitations of ‘labels’ and emerges with a fresh vibrant sound with unlimited potential.

The brightly colored tiles of a mosaic are in relation to the vibrant bits and pieces of musical variety offered including Sting’s ‘I Was Brought To My Senses.’ Barbara Burkle’s pristine vocals accompanied by the classical guitar of Tillmann Reinbeck reinvent a pop tune into a more eclectic contemporary ambiance. Far more than just a passable cover, Batist adds their own musical depth of field and breathes fresh life into the classic Sting tune.’Ave Maria / All The Things You Are’ is a stunning modern fusion of the classical with the Jerome Kern / Oscar Hammerstein II jazz standard. Burkle does not sing the words, she makes the music. Tone, phrasing, articulation are all spot on in one of the most beautiful and well thought out arrangements available to the public. Johann Sebastian Bach’s ‘Invention No. 4’ with voice accompaniment from Burkle is an incredible organic arrangement where classical and contemporary become one. The pulsating yet lyrical bass work of Steffen Hollenweger adds great character to this piece. ‘Bimini’ from Jim Hall opens with Hollenweger’s double bass and is quickly followed with the punctuation and single note articulation from guitarist Reinbeck. While the instrumental prowess shines and this included the rich vocals of Burkle, the ebb and flow is virtually flawless as the trio shifts dynamics on the fly with minimal effort.

To create a unique hybrid without stripping the musical gears of the listener is an amazing feat given the sonic ground Batist attempts to cover. While earthy and seemingly simple, the complexity of the music is that of the arrangements and ambient feel that allow the sonic time traveler ample room to listen without ever becoming lost. An organic heart beat permeates this release, music with a pulse and sense of purpose. Passion is in full effect without the self indulgent after effects that plague most artists attempting such a work of this magnitude.

Neuklang is one of the very finest labels in Europe and they continue to impress with Batist. Traumstoff is virtually flawless and possibly a critics worst nightmare as it masterfully sidesteps standard categorization.

No Man’s Valley is a five-piece band from the south of the Netherlands who have been jamming together for over 5 years now. After releasing two EPs and their highly acclaimed debut full length Time Travel in 2016 on Nasoni Records the band toured Europe, played the renowned Freak Valley Festival in 2018, and a truck load of shows with headliner bands. Their single The Wolves Are Coming was included in the upcoming video game Wreckfest and has reached over 300.000 streams on Spotify. Outside The Dream is No Man’s Valley’s most personal work to date. The art and lyrical concept originate from a period of inner turmoil visualized in the tunnel on the outside and inside of the LP. The creation of the album proved to be a cathartic process, and it taught the band that music can truly be a healing power.

As one of the most successful classical performers of his time, violinist Nigel Kennedy’s genre-defying music helped him achieve a level of fame typically reserved for pop stars. A native of Brighton, England, he studied music at the Yehudi Menuhin School and at Juilliard; his debut recording, Elgar Violin Concerto, appeared in 1984, shortly followed by Nigel Kennedy Plays Jazz. In the years to follow, Kennedy collaborated not only with the more traditional likes of Riccardo Muti and the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, and Andre Previn, but also with pop figures including Paul McCartney and Kate Bush; his fame reached new heights with the 1989 release of his recording of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, which went as high as number three on the U.K. pop charts and went on to sell well over a million copies. In 1992, neck surgery forced Kennedy to retire for several years; when he resurfaced with 1996’s Kafka, he performed his own compositions for the first time, broadening his scope to include not only classical music but also elements of Celtic, rock, and jazz. The Jimi Hendrix tribute The Kennedy Experience followed in 1999.

Since Joe Venuti was in the middle of a long off-period, this CD reissue features arguably the two top jazz violinists of the 1950s: Stephane Grappelli and Stuff Smith. Joined by pianist Oscar Peterson, guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Ray Brown and drummer Jo Jones, the two masterful violinists share four songs (“Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” “Chapeau Blues,” “No Points Today” and “The Lady Is a Tramp”) in a fine studio session that contrasts the styles of the fairly complementary fiddlers. In addition, although this set has been reissued under Grappelli’s name, there are three songs from a Paris concert that took place the same day without Stephane. Stuff sounds in peak form on his “Desert Sands,” “How High the Moon” and “Moonlight In Vermont.” This fun set is easily recommended.

Solid and steady hitmakers for Motown in the late 1960s, the Four Tops, led by the deep, soulful voice of Levi Stubbs and blessed with A-line songs from the Holland-Dozier-Holland writing team, were one of the finest singing groups the label ever produced. Singles like “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Standing in the Shadows of Love,” “Bernadette,” “I Can’t Help Myself,” and the wise-beyond-its-era “It’s the Same Old Song” were radio staples in their time, and actually still continue to be staples on 21st century oldies stations. That’s staying power, and it’s no accident. The songs, at least the singles, were good and the Tops’ sound was a hair rougher and edgier than a lot of Motown’s issues at the time. It was a winning combination. This set has all of the above songs, each of which is essential, and plenty of other stuff that isn’t quite so essential (the Four Tops were really a singles act — their LPs tended to have a fair amount of filler). It also doesn’t have anything the group recorded after they left Motown, but the Four Tops’ peak years were at Motown anyway, so for most listeners, this set will be just fine.

Les rituels de Jindo et le ssitgim-gut
Jindo est la troisième plus grande île située dans le sud-ouest de la péninsule coréenne. Elle a toujours préservé une culture traditionnelle originale jusqu’à ce qu’un pont, construit en 1984, relie l’île au continent.

L’île de Jindo dont le climat tempéré offre d’abondantes ressources agricoles et maritimes, est également réputée pour ses créations artistiques.

Cette île possède neuf biens culturels intangibles dont trois sont inscrits auprès de l’UNESCO en tant que patrimoine culturel immatériel de l’humanité : le ganggangsullae (danse et chants traditionnels) ; le nongak (ensembles de musique, danse et rituels communautaires) ; le chant arirang. Une partie de ces biens immatériels est présentée dans ce disque : le ssitgim-gut, le sangyeo-sori et le namdo-japga.

En Corée, aujourd’hui, les obsèques consistent à déposer les urnes cinéraires dans un columbarium ou éventuellement à les enterrer sous un arbre. La pratique de l’inhumation du corps à la manière traditionnelle est en régression. En marge de ces usages, les rites funéraires de l’île de Jindo, dont le ssitgim-gut, témoignent de la survivance de pratiques funéraires chamaniques datant de l’Antiquité. Le rite ssitgim-gut, composé de cérémonies spécifiques accompagnées de musiques surprenantes, constitue un patrimoine culturel d’une grande importance pour la culture collective des funérailles villageoises qui se déroulaient dans une ambiance de fête. Jusque dans les années 1980, des familles de chamanes résidaient dans chaque village de l’île de Jindo et y exécutaient souvent le ssitgim-gut.

Les musiques jouées lors du ssitgim-gut nécessitent généralement la maîtrise des instruments suivants : le tambour en forme de sablier janggu, le hautbois piri, la cithare à archet ajaeng et le gong jing. Parfois, on ajoute la cithare gayageum à 12 cordes, le tambour buk, la vièle à deux cordes haegeum, la flûte traversière daegeum etc., mais ces instruments sont secondaires. Il arrive également que des instruments à percussions en laiton jeongju et bara soient utilisés.

Le jeu théâtral burlesque dasiraegi
Le rituel funéraire coréen se termine par l’enterrement, après le transport de la bière jusqu’à la tombe, au moyen du sangyeo – grand brancard funéraire. Le jeu effectué dès la veille de l’enterrement chez le défunt, par les villageois préparant le sangyeo, est appelé dasiraegi (« faire renaître » ou « se réjouir ensemble »).

Le sangyeo-sori
Le lendemain matin du ssitgim-gut et du dasiraegi, on commence à préparer l’enterrement. Tout le monde se déplace jusqu’à la tombe avec le grand brancard funéraire sangyeo transportant la bière, suivi d’une longue procession (pouvant atteindre plusieurs centaines de mètres). Sur l’île de Jindo, on appelle ce brancard kot-sangyeo « brancard funéraire fleuri » car, à la différence des brancards du continent, il était particulièrement fleuri de guirlandes en papier. Les chants entonnés par les porteurs de sangyeo pendant cette procession sont appelés sangyeo-sori.

Le jindo manga désigne l’ensemble des chants des porteurs de sangyeo. Il est classé comme patrimoine culturel immatériel n° 19 de la province du Jeolla du sud. Il ressemble aux chants entonnés pendant la cérémonie gildakeum du ssitgim-gut. Parmi les chants du jindo manga figurent dans ce disque les enregistrements des chants eh-sori et ganambosal (plages 12 et 13).
