    Timothy Andres's "Shy and Mighty" Offers Wide Appeal, Says Five-Star Audiophile Audition Review

    Timothy Andres's debut album, Shy and Mighty, released earlier this week on Nonesuch, has been described by New York Times music critic Allan Kozinn as "a richly imaginative 10-movement work for two pianos, performed by Mr. Andres (who is a formidable pianist as well) and David Kaplan." The album has now received a perfect five stars from Audiophile Audition.

    "Many of his pieces have a strong pastoral quality, but he also likes short sonic surprises that give deeper insight into a work or take it in a new direction," Audiophile Audition reviewer John Sunier writes of Andres.

    The reviewer cites the pianist-composer's "fresh new and creative take on music which is worlds different from the usual 'cross-over' effort, as it is from jazz piano or classical miniatures for piano." Sunier considers the album one that "should appeal to a wide variety of listening tastes," concluding: "Give this young man an open-eared listen."

    David Byrne's American Utopia tour made its way to the UK for a week of sold-out shows, all met with rave reviews, starting with the NME's declaration: "The American Utopia tour may just be the best live show of all time." "An unforgettably unique, imaginative, and kaleidoscopically entrancing spectacle of music, dance, and theatre," exclaims the Telegraph. "This was something special." "One of the most mind-blowingly meticulous and awe-inspiring productions you could ever hope to see," says the Independent. "Perfection." "Daringly ambitious and full of joy," says the Evening Standard. "Mass exposure to his glorious, life-affirming American Utopia show alone would make the world a better place," says the Scotsman. "An extraordinary, ecstatic show."

    Joshua Redman is joined by drummer Brian Blade, bassist Scott Colley, and cornetist Ron Miles for Still Dreaming, an album inspired by his father Dewey Redman's band Old and New Dreams, out now. That band had an all-star lineup of Ornette Coleman collaborators: Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Ed Blackwell. "Consistently riveting," says the Washington Post. "It all makes for a jazz adventure that begs for repeated listening," says the Lexington Herald-Leader. "The more you tune in, the more you hear the present day curators of a sublime jazz legacy forging its music into something unmistakably new."
