Unique74 + Beautiful Decay | REVISITED: NOSTALGIA 77 & ART DONT SLEEP

Good music is without question a timeless quality that lingers. Thus, I decided to share previous reviews that I wrote for BEAUTIFUL DECAY which can be found in their back catalog. Enjoy and download these fine audio offerings.

Nostalgia 77 | Everything Under The Sun | Ubiquity
Echoes of Free Form and Afro Blue are felt throughout
this refreshing piece. Various textures and tones of
depth are sprinkled on every track, with revisiting
moments of (if I may respectfully) John Coltrane,
Yusef Lateef, Flora Plurim and Kellee Patterson just
to name a few. The batucada friendly “Wildflower” is
infectious with a very tribal and majectic feel.
“Arora” is a very well composed tune with a reflective
mood while “Eastwind” is a jazz funk groove thats very
minimal yet tactful. Overall, this cd lives up to its
title by taking the listener on a musical sojourn
thats pure in range and emotion. This release is the
sureshot!

Art Dont Sleep Presents | FROM LA WITH LOVE | Milan
An erray of assorted sounds and emotions bring together a hot bed of LA’s finest on this edgy release. Euphoric feelings blended with straight ahead tones are evident on this release. “All The Shallow Deep” feat Nobody/Blank Blue bears a Lalo Schriffin tone while backed by a funky/cool setting. In a beautifully brave remake of remake of Kool and The Gang’s “I Remember John W. Coltrane, Yesterday’s New Quintet delivers some serious funky tones. “Just Begin” feat A Race Of Angels is a warm, wet and vulnerable piece while Coleman’s “No Strings Attached” is a peaceful yet reflective track that is very moving. “Nag Champa by Carlos Nino /Miguel Atwood-Ferguson is a spritual awakening taking flight on an infinite level, an amazingly beautiful composition. From LA With Love bears various tones for all seasons while presenting an array of LA’s musical mavericks taking the listener on an never ending musical trip from Dusk til dawn, on and on.
