Café Society opened the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews. Woody Allen became the first and only director to have three opening night films selected for the Cannes Film Festival. The soundtrack features a great collection of the music from the 1930's. The music is featured prominently in the movie and has been chosen by Woody Allen himself and features newly recorded jazz standards by Grammy Award winners Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks and classic recordings from Ben Selvin, Benny Goodman and Count Basie.
At the end of the previous millennium, Dr. John found himself having recorded not a single album of straight up New Orleans R&B in almost a decade. He soon rectified that with Creole Moon in 2001. This personal interpretation of New Orleans contains 14 slabs of Crescent City soul soaked in the daily life in his beloved city of birth.
Pacific Rim is a 2013 American science fiction monster film directed by Guillermo del Toro, and starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, and Ron Perlman.The film's score was composed by Ramin Djawadi, with guest musicians Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave) and Priscilla Ahn. Ramin Djawadi is best known for his scores for the movies Warcraft [MOVATM118], Iron Man, Prison Break and for HBO's hit series Game of Thrones.
After releasing the album 4 in 1981, Foreigner's fans had to wait three years for its follow-up. Luckily, Agent Provocateur turned out to be worth the wait. The album reached #1 on the UK album charts and #5 on the US album charts. It features two of the band's biggest hits: “That Was Yesterday” and “I Want To Know What Love Is”.
Originally released in 1995, Brothas Doobie is the second album by the Los Angeles-based Latino rap group Funkdoobiest. The album contains all the original members Son Doobie (Jason Vasquez), DJ Ralph M (Ralph Medrano), and Tomahawk Funk (Tyrone Pacheco). The latter left group after this release.
Recorded in support of 2009's Grammy-winning album Already Free, the double live album Roadsongs contains over 100 minutes of music from across their recording career. The recording is full of dynamics and a warm, present sound while capturing the raw, spontaneous energy of a live show.
The incipient incarnation ofAtomic Rooster withVincent Crane(organ/vocals),Nick Graham (vocals/bass), andCarl Palmer(drums) was together just long enough to document its 1970 debut. Prior to the last-minute addition ofGraham-- the only bassistAtomic Roosterever had -- the band emerged from the remnants of the then recently defunctCrazy World of Arthur Brown.
The Music of DC Comics: Volume 2 features 29 songs from beloved movies, television shows, games and radio shows including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman: The Animated Series, Superman, Injustice: Gods Among Us, The Dark Knight Rises, Supergirl, Gotham and The Flash, including eleven songs that have never before been released.
