KELLYLEE EVANS – COME ON

Kellylee Evans gives us a repertory of jazz, soul and groove on the album Come On, all with generosity and talent. Kellylee Evans, winner of the second prize at the Thelonious Monk Competition in 2004 and a Juno Award in her native Canada in 2011, is emerging as a true voice of her generation. This album tells the story of this woman struck by lightning, who in surviving decides to take her life back in hand and affirm strongly her femininity and her desire for love. Evans, who has released six albums and is almost a household name in France, said the subsequent journey that began with a freak lightning strike through the plumbing of her Ottawa kitchen has been a wake-up call and reset her priorities to be more family-oriented. “Being struck by lightning and having your recovery exacerbated by a head injury may not qualify as a blessing to most, but Ottawa singer and songwriter Kelly Lee ...

NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS – WHO BUILT...

NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH...

Noel Gallagher kicked off his Oasis past like a wet nappy and ran, bare-bottomed and vulnerable into a solo career that frankly could have gone either way. Now however, the entire human race must surely thank him for his bold decision as this latest album delivers a squadron of tunes so epic they transcend even the dizzy heights of his previous high-flying solo work. Get out of the doldrums motherfuckers and strap in… Noel Edward Montague Gallagher entered the national consciousness in 1994; the same year as Forrest Gump, the sitcom Friends and the Channel Tunnel. Yet, 23 years later, Noel has evolved musically far more than those other three things put together. We all know the story of the boy from Burnley, with his mop-topped swagger, tracksuit and eyebrows Moses himself couldn’t part. The humble beginnings, touring the world with Allied Carpets and the younger brother now tolerated simply as a potential organ donor ...

JOHN COLTRANE – CHASING TRANE

JOHN COLTRANE – CHASING...

In a film Variety called an “elegantly crafted and illuminating portrait of the singular jazz legend,” director John Scheinfeld explores the life, spiritual journey and unmistakable music of John Coltrane, whose recorded works range from deeply expressive ballads to wildly expressive “sheets of sound.” Scheinfeld crafts a story that reveals and affirms the impact Trane had on a variety of musicians, politicians, educators and artists — including President Bill Clinton, Kamasi Washington, Common, The Doors’ John Densmore, Dr. Cornel West, Yasuhiro Fujioka, and many others. And because the saxophonist did few recorded interviews, the words of John Coltrane are spoken by Denzel Washington. In addition to one‐of‐a‐kind interviews, featured in the main film are never‐before‐seen home movies and photographs; rare TV performances from Europe and America, including one of the few occasions when Coltrane and his classic quartet performed his masterwork, “A Love Supreme,” live in concert; never‐before‐seen documents from Coltrane’s U.S. Navy file; and much more.

GRETA VAN FLEET – FROM...

Greta Van Fleet are a quartet of good‐looking millennial guys who are out of step with their era: they're unapologetic throwbacks to the golden era of classic rock ‐‐specifically, the golden era of Led Zeppelin.

Early in 2014, they recorded a live EP ‐‐ aptly titled Greta Van Fleet: Live in Detroit ‐‐and soon their original "Standing On" appeared in a Detroit ad for the Chevy Equinox. Soon, the group was signed to Lava Records by Jason Flom and the label pushed "Highway Tune" in early 2017, landing it on the Showtime series Shameless and using it ...

BLACK SABBATH – THE END

Almost five decades ago, the toll of a bell and rolling thunder marked the conception of an ear splittingly monolithic riff. In that moment, Black Sabbath and the sound of Heavy Metal were forged. The band embarked on what Ozzy describes as “the most incredible adventure you could think of”, a journey that would go on to define a genre. The End is a celebration of Black Sabbath’s final hometown concert at Birmingham’s Genting Arena on February 4th, 2017. With a hit packed set list including Iron Man, Paranoid, War Pigs, and many more, the high production values, visual effects, and pyrotechnics wowed fans, as the band delivered the most emotionally charged show in their history. All visual formats feature special bonus material of the band playing a selection of their favorite songs not played on tour.
