VA Pure Moods Collection 1997 2004 FLACtorrent
A collection of newly recorded works and original pieces by Fennesz, this is a solo masterpiece for violin, according to most reviews it is. I played it for my friends who love electronic music and they all agreed it is a record with instrumental timbre that can only be named as: INSTRUMENTAL.
It is more a sound record, if you like that, than a purely electronic one. The title of the record means not so much combination of sounds, but more of a total experience. I love it because of its ephemeral nature.
The title track, Fennesz, is not music you listen normally to, it is more like you enter in the world of music, like a painting where the colors change according to your emotions. If you compare it to some electronic records, it is a record that will make you feel all the same things, and not like something from the past. A kind of thinking that is not necessary in electronic music that says, Look to the past, read Vangelis or Kraftwerk or Suicide, to live in a moment in time in music.
The rest of the album is full of other moments, waiting for the right time to burst in our minds. A very warm and recommended record, I would recommend to people to get this record, at least once, because the feeling it gives is timeless, and you will never forget it.
Worthy of your curiosity, and your time.
I didn t know what was happening on the album cover in the mid-1950s, and I certainly don t know why I bought it. It seemed like a pianist, a multi-talented artist whose gifts might have shone brighter had he started earlier. I can place the album on my first day of high school in 1972. It wasn t in the best condition, and when I took it out of its sleeve I saw that the right side was worn and scratched, with loose covers that flapped in the breeze. It wasn t until I played it that I realised that this was the first time that I could call it music. I learned that it was a Miles Davis album, but I had no idea how or why it got the name. To me it seemed like merely a collection of complex, finger-stretching performances that echoed with an exotic crackle, and evoked very strong feelings of deep joy, great admiration and the sense of an open horizon. This was before jazz had reached the hinterlands of my own musical tastes, and before I found out anything about Miles Davis.
Key track: Bagsmoro
In November 1998, shortly after the release of Pure Moods, 4 Years Ago Studios reissued the LP as a standalone CD. The 2000 CD version adds most of the bonus tracks from the vinyl edition as well as a pair of addicional pieces, “Eensy Weensy Woman” and “Vinland.” Key track: Yeah, right
Several years before he recorded Pure Moods, Coltrane added a new dimension to his abstract work by adding an attractive, blues-inflected, and elegant solo voice to his ruminations. This side of his improvisations were incorporated into a trio with pianist Tom Harrell, which Coltrane realized on his masterpiece Ascension, a masterpiece that Coltrane released one year before his death. This album is the perfect example of the musings of the deeply spiritual, deeply spiritual and thoughtful Coltrane, mixed with the blues, jazz, and a touch of one of the era favorites: japanese music. Key track: Twenty-Two
The years between 1944 and 1948 were marked by the deaths of John Coltrane, Jimmy Heath, Marion Brown, and Phil Woods. Soon after Pure Moods was released, Coltranes four-decade long stellar career came to an abrupt end. For the last ten years of his life, the saxophonists imagination ran wild as he found inspiration in the trumpet stylings of Miles Davis, or the piano, band instrumentals of Duke Ellington, or the spiritual languor of India. Add to this book his own spiritual pursuits and you have the makings of one of the most, most imaginative musicians of the 20th century. His autobiography My Coltrane was released in 1990, allowing his recorded legacy to grow and often challenge contemporary standards. The second volume, The Liverpool Years, was released in 1995.
