Vieux Farka Tour? (Mali) and Idan Raichel (Israel), virtuosic superstars from very different backgrounds, join together to create masterworks of collaboration and improvisation.
After a chance meeting in an airport in Europe, Idan and Vieux forged a deep friendship that led to an impromptu get together in a small studio in Tel Aviv in November 2010. The resulting recording session – acoustic, spontaneous, entirely improvised and stunningly beautiful – could only be described as magic, and The Tour?-Raichel Collective was born.

Kathy Sanborn – Sultry Night

Kathy Sanborn - Sultry Night

Sultry Night, the steamy new jazz MP3 album from singer, pianist, and composer Kathy Sanborn, released July 1, 2013, and is available for purchase through popular online outlets such as iTunes and Amazon. The CD version of Sultry Night debuts September 3, 2013.

Sultry Night is the fifth album from singer/composer Kathy Sanborn, who is known for her velvet voice and elegant piano artistry. Besides the smoky and seductive title track, Sanborn’s latest project includes songs honoring movie icon Cary Grant and jazz vocal legend Anita O’Day. Sultry Night includes both ballads and upbeat songs. Particularly engaging are the tunes “No More Storm” and “The Boys Are Back,” which feature cheerful melodies and optimistic lyrics. Sultry Night also features the heartfelt song, “Angels Cry,” which was penned by Sanborn in honor of the children who lost their lives in the Connecticut school tragedy.

JazzTimes says: “Romance is always in the air as far as Kathy Sanborn is concerned, and her songs are reflections of those emotions which take flight when overpowered by love.”

Sultry Night follows Sanborn’s critically acclaimed albums, Six Degrees of Cool and Blues for Breakfast. Both albums reached Amazon’s bestselling MP3 Vocal Jazz charts.

Mothlite – Dark Age

Dark Age

Mothlite is the brainchild of Daniel O’Sullivan. A prolific composer and multi-instrumentalist, O’Sullivan is a member of Ulver and a regular collaborator with Sunn O))), Guapo, ?thenor, Miracle and Grumbling Fur.
Mothlite allows him to move in different musical directions to those taken by his other projects, recalling the deepest remnants of 80’s sounds (Talk Talk, Japan, Cocteau Twins) and fusing it with an innovative, forward-thinking approach to programming and sound design. The result is a grandiose gothic-pop euphoria that retains a subliminally progressive musical depth.
