Marc Bolan – The Celebration Concert (DVD)

SIXTY years since his birth and 30 since his death, 2007 was a poignant anniversary for fans of Marc Bolan, the ultimate glam-rock idol. Those closest to the star held the triumphant Celebration Concert at Shepherd’s Bush Empire featuring hits such as Jeepster, Ride A White Swan, and 20th Century Boy performed by the likes of Marc Almond, Clem Burke and Dr Robert with tribute band T. Rextasy.

Charles Lloyd – Dream Weaver – The Charles Lloyd Anthology

ONE of the most significant saxophonists of his generation, Charles Lloyd has been recording for more than four decades. Hailed as the first psychedelic jazz group, his quartet was one of the most popular jazz outfits of the 1960s. This two-CD set includes live and studio work recorded for Atlantic between 1966 and 1969.

Esbjrn Svensson Trio – Leucocyte

LEUCOCYTES are white blood cells, part of the human immune system that protect the body against foreign pathogens and infections. They must periodically renew themselves to work. The tenuous link to this Scandanavian piano/bass/drum trio is that for them ‘spontaneous jam sessions were the way to renewal’. You would be right in thinking belly laughs are not their forte.
