29410 Jarre, Jean Michel - Equinoxe Infinity (Limited Edition) (Boxset)

Never thought that he would be capable of such acts at the age of
seventy! It is risky to make successors of your most successful works.
Mike Oldfield did it with varying (artistic) success. Jarre himself
also threw his breakthrough LP Oxygene twice in recycling. And now
then Equinoxe; a praised piece of work by all his fans. Doubt in
advance, it would be badly disappointing or with it. Forty years ago,
the album just did not make the mega sales of Oxygene, but with the
well-known Equinoxe part 5 it still contained a hit potent tune.
Equinoxe was also the prelude to the first mega concert by the
Frenchman at Place de la Concorde in Paris. The name and fame only
increased and Jarre became the best known synthesizer musician in the
world and still is today. Someone who has actually become a genre and
completely created his own sound. And age does not mean anything
because the man is unprecedentedly productive. His oeuvre overview
Planet Jarre has appeared cold, the successful Electronica CDs on
which he collaborates with all sorts of artists that he has influenced
were well received and a world tour is just finished. And now Equinoxe
Infinity. From the record company we received the royal box titled
Equinoxe Project in which the vinyl from the album from 1978 and the
remake is included as well as both versions on CD. Posters of the
beautiful artwork and codes to download digital versions of the music
complete the whole. It was precisely that cover of original album that
inspired Jarre to compose the new music. These so-called mysterious
'Watchers' do they embody good or evil? Are they forerunners of
virtual reality and is that new technology good for humanity yes then
no? Two scenarios that also contain two different covers for the CD.
The above questions are elaborated musically in ten 'movements'. Jarre
leaves the pieces that are different in terms of arrangement quite
easily flow into one another. As a result, the CD certainly has flow
and speed. The stately of the original Equinoxe what almost an
electronic suite is just not successful, but as a whole it has become
a handsome and charming work. Jarre quotes frequently from his
complete discography with sounds and themes that are familiar and also
follows the structure of Equinoxe. Striking is the 3rd movement Robots
Do not Cry. In one take played and sometimes against the fake. Honest
and pure of course, but also proof that Jarre has his limitations as a
keyboard player and always knows how to smack his music perfectly with
bleeps, zissers and other enchanting decorations. You'll hear that
again in the smooth parts such as Flying Totems, Infinity and The
Opening. The bombastic opening with The Watchers and the more ambient
and bubbling swinging title piece refers strongly to Equinoxe, but
also let sf euren as The Orb knows how to create. With a playing
length of lp-length, it is an album that Jarre excels with. Old is
cleverly mixed with new and he shows here that he is the man to
(still) take into account. And so in the last days of his career, you
would think ...

28064 Gandalf - ALL IS ONE-ONE IS ALL

Austria's Heinz Strobl recently celebrated its 35-year-old presence in
the trade with a concert at the prestigious Konzerthaus in Vienna.
Under his stage name Gandalf he releases an album on average every
year, so the discography now has a good length. In recent years his
work has been published on the American label Real Music, which
specializes in new age. The music of Heinz seems to have softened
under the influence of that, where he was always close to the symphony
in the eighties and nineties. The best is that due to a lesser role on
the later productions for the electric guitar that Strobl always
played so beautifully in Steve Hackett style. Also on All Is One - One
Is All the piano wins it again, although luckily there is some tension
and bombast here and there. For example From The Depth Of The Earth
there is a nice threat and an almost symphonic build-up. The cello by
Merike H ilmar is also a fixed value on the most recent albums.
Multi-instrumentalist Peter Aschenbrenner and Heinz 'son Christian
(drums) also often participate on the plates, so also now. I find the
vocals of Agnes Milewsky less in the Celtic tinted title track. In the
nineties Gandalf already made a record with Tracy Hitchings (Landmarq,
Strangers On A Train) in this style. We now know that Clannad-like
atmosphere by now. The version here is a very well-worn push-through.
A piece of art is the song Where Longings Are Born with a stirring
cello and a stately piano. It reminds me of the soundtrack of the
Oscar winning film The Piano. Halfway through is the track Paint You A
Song; a correct description for the style of Gandalf. The man can
paint with sounds as the best on this album inspired by the Canary
Island of La Palma.

Due to the fact that we use a special shipping service that provides
the shipping of parcels etc we don't have to adjust the shipping prices
at this moment. One of the reasons is that because of you our costumers
we can keep these prices so low. With over 1500 parcels shipped last year
we can stay in the lowest shipping prices!
I am glad we are one of the few suppliers of EM that did not have to raise
their shipping prices. So for the 4rth year in a row they stay the same!!

====== Groove info =====
If you missed the last E-News issues they are ALL also on-line!!

===== Where to get Groove =====
As all know you can get all Groove titles on out website www.groove.nl
And for those who like to buy the music as a download we have of coarse the
following outlets:

Most Groove releases are also available as Downloads on the Groove
Download page.
Go to https://shop.groove.nl/ and shop around,
But there are also releases by many other artists among them John Kerr, Remy.

For those who are a costumer of CD Baby we have also a lot of titles there
for in their program and we try to keep up with the stock there..
And they are also available through I-Tunes and Amazon downloads!
These have been added this year.

Groove is now also on Bandcamp.
The last months we have added new titles and we are adding them daily
if the time allows!
You can now order from bandcamp and I hope to add new titles fast!!

A free service for customers.
