Górecki: Symphony No. 3, "Symphony Of Sorrowful Songs"(CD)

Beth Gibbons

Back in fall 2014, Portishead's Beth Gibbons performed Henryk Górecki’s Symphony No. 3 with the Polish National Radio Symphony. Out now via Domino, the album marks Gibbons' first release since Portishead's 2008 LP, Third . The whole affair was conducted by Krzysztof Penderecki, known as Poland's greatest living composer, and recorded live. The singer ventures into soprano territory here (she's a contralto) and performs in the original Polish, to thrilling effect. As fans would expect, it's a lush, moving, and deeply vulnerable performance from an artist who leaves listeners clinging to every word.

Free Spirit (CD)

Khalid

Khalid’s Free Spirit is smart, soulful, and smooth as silk. The Grammy nominee infuses alt-R&B sensibilities into instantly addictive radio-friendly jams — it’s a winning combination. Khalid’s honeyed voice floats over the glossy, sometimes trippy production, the lyrics candid, vulnerable, and brave. There’s a reason Khalid has gotten so much buzz and this excellent album proves he deserves to be at the top. Essential listening for fans of sultry, sophisticated R&B.

Spaceman (CD)

Ace Frehley

Ace Frehley shows no signs of slowing down at 67, with his third solo album of straightforward F-off rock n' roll. Several tracks on Spaceman were co-written with Gene Simmons, and most of them boast enough still-blistering guitar solos to satisfy KISS fans. “Your Wish Is My Command” is a clear highlight with its cruising, feel-good chorus, as well as the faster-paced rocker “Bronx Boy.” Instrumental closer “Quantum Flux” goes against the grain delving into prog-rock territory and adding a little extra texture.

Invitation (CD)

Heather Woods Broderick

Heather Woods Broderick’s latest release, Invitation , is atmospheric, melancholy, and as familiar as a half-remembered dream. The singer-songwriter named the album as a nod to a quote from American author Thomas Moore about how “to be a person means to be faced every minute with the decision to live or die; to accept the invitations for yet more vitality or to decline them out of fear or lethargy.” It’s a pretty apt synopsis of the album’s lyrical concerns and pervasive mood — shadowy and strange yet ultimately uplifting. Fans of past tour mates Horse Feathers and Sharon Van Etten won’t want to sleep on the intriguing Ms. Woods Broderick’s Invitation .

The Hurting Kind (CD)

John Paul White

The second solo album from The Civil Wars' John Paul White features tracks co-written by Nashville greats Bobby Braddock and Whisperin' Bill Anderson, as well as guest turns from the Secret Sisters and Lee Ann Womack, among others. It's a set of country folk that rides along pleasantly on mid-tempo guitar. “The Long Way Home” is decidedly catchy despite a dark tone and White's sensitive but urgent vocals carry the chorus. “I Wish I Could Write You A Song” sways and soars gorgeously, and album closer “My Dreams Have All Come True” is a sweet waltz that swells into something grander, floating on strings and steel guitar.

Moonlight (CD)

Johnnyswim

The third studio album by husband & wife team Johnnyswim (Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano) ups the stakes with the help of Grammy-winning producer Malay. The duo's slick combination of soul, rock, and pop is centered around their complementary voices, weaving together effectively, for example, on the edgy, percussive single “Bridges.” “Flowers” is a smooth ballad helmed by Sudano with notes of twangy folk, but the tracks are frequently uplifted by energizing beats such as in “The Last Time,” which features Michael McDonald, and “Souvenir” which morphs into a dynamic stomping chorus.

The Music Never Stops (CD)

Betty Carter

The late Betty Carter's 1992 performance for the burgeoning Jazz at Lincoln Center in NYC is available now as a recorded testament to her terrific talents. At age 61, Carter's on-stage energy and largely free-style vocalization was impressive, as she led the big band and three trios, as well as guests like Geri Allen, Crys Chestnut, Ariel Roland, and John Hicks. In keeping with the title of the evening, the concert had no intermission and Carter sang most of the intros and segues, keeping the music constant. The medley of “Tight” and “Mr. Gentleman,” the album's single, shows off her expert intonation and phrasing.

Bolden [OST] (CD)

Wynton Marsalis

Bolden , the new biopic about New Orleans jazz king Charles “Buddy” Bolden, was not only produced by current icon Wynton Marsalis, but he also performed the music that takes center stage in the film. The soundtrack is a feast of that pioneering Big Easy brass sound, reviving many ragtime numbers that Bolden made famous. Delivered here by Marsalis with a wellspring of talent that includes Catherine Russell, Brianna Thomas, Victor Goines, Wycliffe Gordon and more, the music vividly captures the sound of a turbulent era from which a brand new genre exploded – forever changing American popular music.

Ventura (CD)

Anderson .Paak

Anderson .Paak’s star continues to rise on his excellent new LP, Ventura . Joined by a whole galaxy of top tier talent, .Paak delivers a non-stop mix of soulful, funky future hits. Along for the ride are Andre 3000, Smokey Robinson, Lalah Hathaway, Jazmine Sullivan, Sonyae Elise, Brandy, and the late Nate Dogg. Executive produced by the legendary Dr. Dre, this is an album you already know is reaching future classic status. Essential listening for true soul and hip-hop heads.
