To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Weather Report the Zawinul estate is proud to release this live document of the band's performance in Cologne, Germany, on May 13th, 1983. This is the first time that this wonderful concert has been available and it's released simultaneously on 2CD. By this time leaders Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter had produced some of the most innovative and best selling jazz of the 1970's, often in the company of some of the foremost musicians of that time including Jaco Pastorius and Peter Erskine. By 1983 this bass and drums team had departed and Zawinul and Shorter completely refashioned the band bringing on board a new, younger, rhythm section including Victor Bailey, Omar Hakim and Jose Rossy.

This collection of electro-acoustic music from the legendary studios of Cologne's electronic music features the works of some of the field's most seminal proponents, such as Herbert Eimert, whose "Glockenspiel" is here. Also here are early exploratory works by composers who scaled back their investigations in later years, like Gyorgy Ligeti, whose two monumental works from the '50s -- "Glissandi" and "Articulation" -- are included in the set. Also featured are Herbert Brun, Franco Evangelisti, and the obscure but no-less-important Bengt Hambrauuse and Karel Goeyvaerts. While these may be just names to others, these early pioneers using sine-wave generators; small, primitive sound oscillation systems; tape delay systems; and manual manipulation of speed, timbre, texture, and sonance offered the future something indispensable: they manipulated natural processes of auditory awareness and created a dimensionless area of exploration and discovery which goes on with far more elaborate technology and virtually reaches into the outer dimensions of space and back. This is one of the most important volumes in the series.

One of the highest and rarest aspirations in popular music is to reach for the transcendental, to access the spirit. On the third album, The Wave, by Nashville based Los Colognes, they succeed just this - in breaking through the confines of everyday pop song lyricism to tell a sort of holistic story. It's not a concept piece, but it's a brooding and still joyful song cycle filled with philosophical rumination, effortless hooks, inspiring musicianship, and expansive arrangements. It's an album perfectly suited of the current zeitgeist of unease and hope. Details

Jazz, Contemporary Big Band | Released: February 9, 2010

The source of the giant, South African-born pianist/composer Abdullah Ibrahim's genius is his orchestral piano style, derived from the ducal sound of his mentor/discoverer, Duke Ellington. So it's only fitting that Bombella, Ibrahim's follow-up to his 2008 Sunny Side/Intuition debut, Senzo, showcases Ibrahim's powerful pianism with the world-acclaimed WDR Big Band Cologne, recorded live in March/April of 2008 in Germany, performing a well programmed potpourri of selections from the leader's dancing and diverse catalog.

During August 2015 the WDR Big Band performed an impressive concert of large ensemble jazz crossed with African timbres and rhythms, at the Cologne Philharmonic. The guests also included Rhani Krija on percussion, Henry Dorina, electric bass, Woz Kaly, vocals and Jean-Philippe Rykiel, keyboard. The pieces were arranged and conducted by Michael Mossmann. The music is presented by Mokhtar Samba: it is about vibrant rhythms and hypnotising melodies. As Samba feels very close to the music of his ancestors, his pieces are naturally heavily influenced by the elementary power of African rhythms.

The Greek-born Dimitri Mitropoulos (1896–1960) was incredibly gifted – his photographic memory allowed him to conduct without a score in concert and also in rehearsal! After studies in Athens, Brussels and Berlin, he took various posts in Greece. In 1930, Mitropoulos played the solo part in Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No.3 with the Berlin Philharmonic and conducted the work from the keyboard, becoming the first modern musician to do so. He made his US debut in 1936 and went on to become principal conductor of the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra (1937–1949) and then music director of the New York Philharmonic (1951–1957), where he was eventually succeeded by Leonard Bernstein. He expanded the repertoire of the NYPO and championed Mahler’s symphonies in particular.

Floh de Cologne were a German band, active from 1966 to 1983, regarded as a pioneer of krautrock (Floh is German for 'flea'). After success at the beginning of the 70s, the band separated in 1983.The group was formed in 1966 by a group of anarchist students, all from the University of Cologne. Their first album, Vietnam, released in 1968, is a fierce criticism of the war in Vietnam. Impressed by their music and especially their lyrics, Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser decided to produce their next two albums: Rockoper Profitgeier (1971) and Lucky Streik (1972).
