Read on for discovery links, and be sure to let us know which tracks are your favorites.
MARCH RELEASES OUT NOW
Timothy Lee Miller
Expanding upon something as simple as a photograph or a memory, Miller’s noir-influenced jazz expands his reflections beyond words, and instead creates story through moods.
THE MORE YOU KNOW
This is not “just another pops album.” Paley’s work is cool, clever, and ridiculously fun. Seven of the ten tracks on THE MORE YOU KNOW are completely composed, arranged, and performed by Ron Paley.
NOTES TO LOVED ONES
Up-and-coming composer Peter Dayton makes his PARMA debut on the Navona label with the release of Notes to Loved Ones, an album of works for piano and strings.
MUSICAL IMAGES FOR PIANO
Mark John McEncroe
MUSICAL IMAGES FOR PIANO presents a theater of the mind, performed with a delicacy that is both melancholic and nostalgic. Rather than attempting to shatter musical boundaries, McEncroe focuses on the introspective, letting the listener’s stories and memories give the music its own unique life.
Alejandro Rutty and his cast of remarkable performers create fresh, captivating music combining Latin and world music styles with the classical tradition. Rutty composes the album like a breathing exercise, taking in an anxious pace in one movement, and then in the next, letting the melodies exhale gently through the piece.
PIANO WORKS BY SARA FEIGIN
Led by Carmela O’Flaherty, the composer’s daughter, the project consists nearly entirely of previously unperformed and unrecorded works for piano. Pianist Benjamin Goodman masterfully interprets her vibrant, virtuosic music.
MUSIC FROM THE ETHEREAL SIDE OF PARADISE
John A. Carollo
John A. Carollo’s fourth PARMA release is a wondrous musical journey through the world of desire. With MUSIC FROM THE ETHEREAL SIDE OF PARADISE, Carollo makes an impassioned plea for the power of romance.
THE BROKEN VESSEL
Andreas Barth, Geir Hjorthol and Magnar Åm take the concept of “industrial music” to a whole new level. Taking place in an abandoned Norwegian factory, “The Propeller Hall,” the artists utilized everything from the acoustics in the building to the muffled sounds of traffic outside its walls.
Cresswell’s 315 Ensemble is dedicated to exploring possibilities in electroacoustic music as well as commissioning works from outstanding composers worldwide. This debut album premieres–exclusively–two compositions by Cresswell himself.
