Preston Cloud’s posthumous album “Bandage For Wounds”.
It has been hailed by Jazz Review as “a shattering soulful revelation that even tops Cloud’s magnum opus “For A Full Life” and leaves fans all across the words speechless and mourning the great trumpetist for a second time”.
Preston Cloud was born and raised in New Orleans and played in local big bands until he heard Chet Baker and decides to play in more subdued evocative post be bop style. An enigmatic figure torn by his inner demons, jazz fans have learn after his untimely death that the inspiration for his breakout album “Reach Your Destiny” came from the terrible car crash that left his wife in a coma for years. Broken by the guilt and his drinking problems, Cloud committed suicide soon after Katrina hit New Orleans. The previoulsy unheard recordings from this album have been unearthed by his wife who woke up from the coma two years after his death.
Manaslu’s latest album: “Because I Am Bored”.
They are a cult prog rock band from germany with touches of brazilian funk. The singer never really got rid of the teutonic accent even after 35 years of career and 17 albums. His texts are now translated from the german by his daughter Mana who is in second year of english at the university of Innsbruck. All the bandmembers met while studying architecture at university in the seventies and most of them work in environmental administrations. They have been described by Der Stern as “As if the boredom of Innsbruck administration offices have given birth to a Brazil (the movie) like sensitivity for a listening experience that will ravish fans of Kraftwerk, Santana, Pink Floyd and Engerlbert Humperdink”
I don’t even live in the USA and even I can interpret that. There has been a recent chimp attack in the news the police had to shoot it down. The cartoonist is unfunnily pretending the chimp wrote the stimulus bill, implying it’s bad, like in the joke “how long does it take a monkey to write… etc”. How in hell have you been able to think the chimp was representing Obama…
I don’t think you can really top that…
