So Serious - Electric Light Orchestra - The Danish Collection (CD)

14.11.2021

But it's the same people working on it, that's the principle. That's my ideal model — Gorillaz is a group of people who gave you this, and now want to give you new stuff. In the Observer interview, Hewlett said that there is "a new project which Damon and I are working on now, called Carouselwhich is even bigger and more difficult than Monkeyand it isn't going to fit anywhere and no one's going to like it, ha ha ha!

We've started work — I've done a lot of visuals and Damon's done a lot of music but we haven't figured out how they're going to fit together. I can't say much about it yet but it's sort of like a film, but not with one narrative story. There's many stories, told around a bigger story, set to music, and done in live action, animation, all different styles, well So I'm not sure how it'll pan out, or even if it will happen. But Damon's written around 70 songs for it, and I've got great plans for the visuals, but right now, at this moment, it's still just a really good idea.

Damon Albarn got the idea for Plastic Beach while on a beach next to his house: "I was just looking for all the plastic within the sand", he said. That's a great place to come at when we come to another Gorillaz album. It doesn't have to be animation and music". But then we had a moment where we had a new angle on it I'm gonna adapt them".

Albarn said in September that he wanted "to work with an incredibly eclectic, surprising cast of people". In OctoberAlbarn stated that he had "loads and loads of songs" for a direct sequel to Plastic Beachciting "the need to keep reminding people that we need to change our habits" as his main reason for revisiting the album's themes.

He added, "I'd like to just have an album called Clean Beachbut at the moment it's still Plastic Beach. Albarn began recording material for a new Gorillaz album around June Kano said "We weren't feeling great, the music was out of our comfort zone, it could have been a complete disaster". He was sat down and given a banana, before waking up minutes later. The unreleased material is "some really out-there stuff, which hopefully will see the light of day at some point".

Among these is a song Gorillaz wanted to record with Engelbert Humperdinck. Arabic strings. It's imagining Earth losing its gravitational pull and starting to fall". As it turned out, Humperdinck's manager had listened to the proposed selection and declined the offer for him without his knowing.

Humperdinck later stated in an interview that his manager declining the collaboration offer was "the most grievous sin ever committed", and that he would have gladly collaborated with Gorillaz if he had known they asked. We've made contact with Indian singer Asha Bhosle and I think it's definitely going to happen.

I'll maybe duet with her; the song has these answering phrases". Several musicians who collaborated on songs for the album did not end up having all or any of their songs appear on the final album; some guests announced to have collaborated with the band do not feature on the album. British garage rock band The Horrors were invited to play on the album after Albarn heard their album Primary Colours.

Gruff Rhys recorded two songs — "Superfast Jellyfish" and "Leviathan". The latter, described by Rhys as "more of a night-time song, a three o'clock in the morning, speeding down the autobahn evading West German police-type track", does not feature on the album. Albarn had previously announced that musician Barry Gibb would feature on the album but Gibb did not turn up to any recording sessions. According to The Times journalist Peter PaphidesPlastic Beach is a pop and concept album[25] while AllMusic editor Stephen Thomas Erlewine said that "Damon's painstaking pancultural pop junk-mining" on the album posits hip hop with Britpop and "accentuates moody texture over pop hooks ".

Albarn said in an interview, "I'm making this one the most pop record I've ever made in many ways, but with all my experience to try and at least present something that has got depth. People who watch X Factor might have some emotional connection to these things, this detritus that accompanies what seems to be the most important thing in people's eyes, the celebrity voyeurism. The first time Albarn went to Mali, he was taken to a landfill where he saw people "taking every little bit, a little bit of fabric to the fabric regenerators, or the metal and the cans to the ironsmiths and the aluminium recyclers, and it goes on and by the time you get to the road, they're selling stuff.

And for the first time I saw the world in a new way. I've always felt, I'm trying to get across on this new record, the idea that plastic, we see it as being against nature but it's come out of nature. We didn't create plastic, nature created plastic. And just seeing the snakes like living in the warmth of decomposing plastic bags. They like it. It was a strange kind of optimism that I felt But important. Albarn says the album maintains a lot of the melancholy from Carousel.

A new picture of the band was published on 9 December on the cover of the UK edition of Wired magazine. On 20 Januarythe official Gorillaz website was heavily revamped to fit the Plastic Beach theme. Over a period of time, numerous short clips were posted on the site, mainly showing various shots of a large Plastic Beach model backed by segments of new Gorillaz music.

Out of the 13 short clips, only two of the clips had audio that would eventually end up on the album. Also on the website was a countdown timer, which on 23 February counted down to zero.

After a significant delay, a new full Kong studios-esque interactive Plastic Beach "Beachsite" was uploaded onto the website, opening certain sections of Plastic Beach to be visited by guests.

He played a minute set of songs while providing exposition on the story of Gorillaz. A total of four broadcasts were uploaded online, leading to the release of the album. All four were available on the official Gorillaz website. Similar to the previous album, short animated "idents" have been released for fictional band members Murdoc, 2-D, Russel, and the Noodle cyborg. The first depicts Murdoc fleeing from an unknown, rifle-wielding assailant featuring a clip of "Three Hearts, Seven Seas, Twelve Moons" in the backgroundand the second depicts 2-D's abduction and transportation to Plastic Beach by a masked figure, who according to the Boogeyman with a snippet of the instrumental version of "Rhinestone Eyes".

The track can be found as a bonus track along with "Pirate's Progress" on the iTunes Deluxe edition. Russel's ident has him stomping off of the edge of a pier and diving into the ocean, presumably headed to Plastic Beach for reasons unknown. The fourth features a zoom in on Cyborg Noodle with its face plate open.

A fifth ident was also released, showing a luxury cruise sail being bombarded by torpedoes coming from planes flying above it. A crew member rushes over to cabin 13 to warn a passenger, who is revealed to be Noodle wearing the oni maskthat the cruise is under attack by pirates and he was told to escort her to the lifeboats.

Noodle then grabs her briefcase and opens it, revealing a gun, and passes the crew member while heading out, presumably to face the pirates. Noodle's ident acts as a trailer to the "On Melancholy Hill" music video, which was released on 15 June. On 26 Februarya "minimix" of the album was made available on the official website to download for free.

On 1 MarchNPR debuted the entire album via streaming. Originally, " Rhinestone Eyes " and "To Binge" were both slated to release as the 4th and 5th singles respectively. A storyboard version of a possible music video for "Rhinestone Eyes" was released on 4 October to the band's official YouTube channel.

Plastic Beach debuted at number two on the UK Albums Chartselling 74, copies in its first week. Plastic Beach received generally positive reviews from critics; it holds an aggregate score of 77 out of at Metacritic.

In a negative review, Los Angeles Times writer Mikael Wood said that "too many of these 16 hazy, half-crazy tracks sound like undercooked studio goofs", panning its second half as "one long, jammy drone, with none of Albarn's melodic or lyrical gifts on display".

But still, a mess". At the end ofPlastic Beach appeared on several critics' top-ten lists of the year's best albums. Credits adapted from the liner notes of the Experience Edition of Plastic Beach. Plastic Beach was released in a total of six editions, many of which contain a multitude of exclusive features.

June Pop electronic hip hop world funk. Except he did it first. However, things went supernova-ish when this incredible unit made and released this jazz best-seller in Nobody remained untouched by his light-but-tight approach, his winningly imaginative arrangements and his incredible attention to dynamics.

This one turned everyone around. Ornette set the musicians up in two parallel quartets, arranged some loose themes and collective playing to book end the entire performance as well as section off each solo, then let the musicians loose for a collective bout of improvisation that lasts well over half an hour reinventing the possibilities of jazz as it does so.

The overall marvel of this record is that, while it proved to be so pregnant with ideas for those who followed in the next decades, the music grips the listener as excitingly as ever today. Brubeck rarely gets his due. A shame, because his good qualities are pretty special. For starters, he knew exactly the way to get the best from Paul Desmond, and for that we should all be down on our knees in thanks.

Put that all together and the unusual time signatures that mark this album out tend to pale in significance while the music remains convincing. It may have been jazz-rock after Bitches Brew, but after Head Hunters jazz-funk was the flavour de jour.

The release represented a u-turn of spectacular proportions from the more esoteric direction mapped out on Crossings and Sextant to an album aimed squarely at the dance floor which is where it scored.

Review Herbie Hancock — Head Hunters. Ayler made a couple of revolutionary records in Europe two years prior to this but the first ESP-Disk was the one that made the breakthrough in terms of reaching out and changing absolutely everything. It was only later that his musical forms were grasped and understood. On release, the record changed every conception of what constituted cutting-edge jazz overnight and unleashed generations of imitators.

But Albert did it first, and did it best. It lit up the night sky for almost two years, everything was played at mph with the Marshall stacks turned up to eleven.

It left audiences in awe, then suddenly was gone. McLaughlin redefined the role of guitar in jazz, Cobham the drums and the band set new standards in ensemble cohesion. They did it without sounding glib, a trick their legion of followers never fathomed. They also sold albums in pop numbers and played arena rock stadiums.

Feature Ten of the best Louis Armstrong albums. Funnily enough, although Out To Lunch has the iconic cover and evolutionary reputation, the real breakthrough Dolphy disc, Conversations, was made the previous summer,for the tiny FM label. Be that as it may, Out To Lunch represents another side of the Dolphy genius, showing him as a musician-leader intent on involving his entire group in the improvisatory process at every level and at all times.

What would he have done next? The great man himself knew that this album was a culmination rather than a new beginning, but that probably accounts for its consummate artistry as much as any other reason: Coltrane was the most thorough of players. Some CD versions have as many as eight bonus tracks.

Feature John Coltrane — Giant Steps. Jarrett burst onto the international jazz scene as part of the ground-breaking Charles Lloyd Quartet of the latter s, moved on to running his own trio, briefly joined in with the Miles Davis electronic voodoo soups of the early s, then retreated to acoustic music and a So Serious - Electric Light Orchestra - The Danish Collection (CD) of what he was attempting to achieve in his music.

This led to something of a temporary eclipse in his profile in the first half of the s, although his creativity continued to diversify and deepen.

This remains the case with Jarrett and with the record, which is not only a jazz turning-point in its own right but one of the biggest-selling discs in the genre. From whatever perspective you choose to view the s — from the Cuba Missile So Serious - Electric Light Orchestra - The Danish Collection (CD) to the rise of the counter culture movement, the student riots in Paris in May to the growing anti-Vietnam protests across the USA, the advent of the pill to the rise of rock music — established values were being openly questioned, upturned and in general shaken up.

After all, combining jazz and rock? With Bitches Brew the jazz-rock message was handed down from the mount on tablets of stone. Parker, of course, made his most innovatory music on record prior to the invention of the LP, so every collection of his brilliant music from the s is a latter-day compilation of the original 78rpm singles.

These days, you can buy the complete Parker Savoys and Dials in a lavish multiple CD set, but you get all the breakdown, alternative takes and other bits and pieces, making it a trial for all but the committed Parker enthusiast. Undiluted precedent-breaking music from Parker, aided and abetted by the best and most sympathetic colleagues of the day.

Feature Charlie Parker — Bird Lives! Just as with the Monk at number six, this classic album also represented a career breakthrough. Recorded not long after his Blues And Roots, but Atlantic deliberately held that back for over a year because the bassist had signed his first contract with Columbia, the major whose distribution, especially to the white audience, was much more powerful.

Recording of Brilliant Corners began 50 years ago next month, making an impact hard to imagine these days. The first new Monk album to receive more than a guarded welcome in the press, the praise was entirely justified. Rollins and Roach, currently making a success of the newly Clifford Brown-less Roach quintet, had worked for Monk before but both were seriously challenged by his material here. Using the bubbly Clark Terry and Paul Chambers on a subsequent session was a stroke of genius, as was the unaccompanied piano track.

And the whole thing was released just as Monk began his historic group with Coltrane. Feature Thelonious Monk: essential recordings.

Was Sonny Rollins ready in ? Was he ready! But Saxophone Colossus towers above them all, not only because it concentrates on a quartet setting allowing undiluted access to the creative process of Sonny at his most inspired, but because it is one of those happy coincidences where all elements came off equally well, including the use of unusual repertoire and inspired originals.

This is still the biggest-selling jazz album of all time in Japan. Two weeks or so later LaFaro was dead and Evans left with the ashes of his first great group.

The pianist obviously had great discernment because thousands of people have concurred with him since, naming this not only their favourite Evans album but the one that changed their lives and in some cases, their careers. Not only were the three trio members individually at their peaks on So Serious - Electric Light Orchestra - The Danish Collection (CD) particular Village Vanguard Sunday, but they interacted with quietly fierce invention as never before, certainly not on record.

Equal partners, they sustained a musical dialogue on selection after selection that has rarely been equalled within the earshot of a professional microphone, with the astonishingly inventive LaFaro perhaps meriting the sobriquet of senior partner at times, so dominant can he be.

The various CD versions of this set come in all manner of configurations, many with as much as five bonus tracks. Original is best, however, and you will not be disappointed by a CD containing the bare LP track line-up. Feature: Ten life-changing jazz piano trio recordings.

Anyway, few observers of the day were bothered by the hyperbole, more by the claim that Ornette had any musical worth whatsoever. What this album did in fact contain and represent was a completely different and fresh set of musical signposts within the jazz vernacular, both in terms of the stunningly bright melodic patterns Ornette crystallised in his vibrant and beautiful compositions and in his off-the-wall improvisatory approach.

He also brought back to jazz that rough, keening wail and constant pitch variations of the most basic blues and folk music. Ornette never did, either, bless him. Yes, Coltrane plays like a man inspired by something more than the job immediately to hand, as do the other three musicians involved, and yes the themes are unremittingly sober. Within jazz itself, the album ensured that the music could no longer be considered a social or cultural also-ran, the spiritual and humanistic concerns that made up its inspiration demanding that it be treated in the same way as the master creations of the art-music of any culture.

Nothing could be the same again. How does one properly gauge impact? Today, there it is on Hollywood soundtracks, an incontestable signifier of hip. There it is near the sales till, still moving up to 5, copies a week worldwide, outselling most contemporary jazz recordings. And there it sits in at least five million CD collections. But perhaps Kind of Blue is better measured by the sum of the constituent parts. Five tunes, exceedingly simple in construction, exceptionally deep in evocative power, played by seven post-bop masters, all in their prime.

Certainly, Kind of Blue must be measured by musical influence. Ask any number of influential music-makers who have been around, such as Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, and the like, they all agree. Miles was remarkably successful in marrying musical opposites: 20th century classical concepts such as harmonic simplicity, exotic scales and African rhythms all in a relaxed, swinging groove. For one of its joint creators — John Coltrane — it pointed the way forward: he led much of the jazz world into the s after his modal lessons with Miles.

At the close of the 60s, the modal idea became the foundation of fusion jazz. It proved the same for a number of rock groups, such as the Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead and Santana, that used the electric guitar as the solo instrument of choice, and set the standard for generations of jam-oriented bands to follow.

My theories on why that particular Miles album maintains its hold on the top of various charts never seem to settle comfortably on one explanation. I feel the ranking of a musical masterpiece is one that should be open to constant rethink, even if the status remains the same in the end.

Or of 20,or any number that would place one recording before another. Musical value and appreciation is far too subjective a thing to be ordered neatly on a linear scale. One-dimensional exercises such as list-making seem especially un-hip and unrevealing when it comes to jazz, the most porous and democratic of musics, open to all influences, granting all styles equal value and importance.

At least in my view. Of the many ideas I gathered for my book on Kind of Bluethere is one quote in particular that comes to mind whenever the subject of relative value arises. If you like the alto playing, buy a Cannonball Adderley record.

My own introduction to Kind of Blue took place ina time when my teenage ears were filled with post-Woodstock rock, and the first bursts of punk. Springsteen was a recent discovery as was Bob Marley. Holding it out to me, he declared it a classic. I looked at it anew and came to enjoy its mood-setting atmosphere.

I also came to realise how narrowly I had been casting for new sounds. I had been standing on the shore of a vast ocean of musical possibilities, yet fishing in one small inlet. As a measure of impact — I can think of nothing more significant than the music that first unmoors one from preconceptions and the need to stay in one place. For this alone, for serving for so many as a portal to an entire world of creative music, I agree that Kind of Blue continues to earn its status as a number one.
