No stranger to the music scene, the talented keyboardist/composer Sanjay Wandrekar and his CD "Indian Dusk" will enlighten your musical senses through his artistic arrangements of World/Indian classical music. This album features sound textures that captures the essence of peace and tranquility. Wandrekar reveals his excellent taste in musical tonality on the song, "In Earnest," as the instruments projects crisp clarity with intense precision. A touch of Jazz is heard on "A Bridge So Near" as the female vocal rises above the soft drum splashes and strong bass line with a nice dynamic balance. The sultry sax on the song, "Eloquent Conversation," cascades around the strong and polished vocal while the sparkling piano plays a delicate riff. Relax and enjoy the thought provoking compositions of "Indian Dusk" as you will find this album filled with memorable peaceful music.

"Songs for Salaam/Shalom" by Bamjimba (World Artist from England)

The most recent release by the talented artist Bamjimba is "Songs for Salaam/Shalom." This album is a single release, of sorts, as it contains 3 different versions of the same song, "Allulam Hadash." This release is one for charity and aimed at giving young Jewish and Muslim listeners music they can both enjoy and dance to. "Allulam Hadash (feat. Michal Nahman)" is a more relaxed version of the song with very enlivened drum lines. "Allulam Hadash (slamdogz Remix)" is a more brooding, spacey, and psychedelic version of the song and contains hallucinatory choir like vocals cascading over the stirring percussion. "Allulam Hadash (special Dj Aka Ak Re-mix)" is still spacey, but with a definite danceable feel to it and has more emphasis on the instrumentation as opposed to the vocals. This release is perfect for those who appreciate music that tries to meld the worlds of Jewish and Muslim listeners. And because the proceeds go to a worthy cause, you can feel good as you dance to Bamjimba's "Songs for Salaam/Shalom."

"Groovechasers Live '05" by The Groovechasers (Jazz Artist from England)

"Groovechasers Live '05" by the tight knit Jazz band, The Groovechasers, is a smooth, live recorded album that gives the listener a full heaping of what this band is all about; good Jazz music. This album contains some classic Jazz standards that The Groovechasers creatively put their own musical style to giving the listener a taste of their quality musicianship and wishing that they were at this concert and planning to attend the next. "All Blues," as the track name implies, is a melodious blues-inspired track with an easy-going overtone that puts one in a state of relaxed and serene bliss. "Dig A Little Deeper" on the other hand is comprised of a lot of rhythmic and melodic diversity. The saxophone dominates this one and rides the harmony with laid-back dexterity. "Bags Groove" is an upbeat, sassy, and timeless tune fit for any Jazz night club with its vibrant and energetic swing feel. If you are someone who appreciates the music of Herbie Hancock or Weather Report, then the CD "Groovechasers Live '05" would be a great addition to your Jazz collection.

"New York Situation" by Zhonray (Easy Listening Artist from The United Kingdom)

Zhonray's latest release CD is "New York Situation" and proves to be a wonderful adult contemporary single. This CD includes 2 well produced versions, one with vocals and one instrumental only, of the title song. The song in itself is a beautiful tribute and reflection upon the city that never sleeps and its inherent romantic possibilities. It is a mellow and charming song, featuring Zhonray's velvety voice singing over alluring piano highlights and classy synthesizer interplay. With this single you also get an instrumental version of "New York Situation" so that you can take in this delightful song with its easy flowing drum beats, sweet strings, and synth brass. If you enjoy previous musical tributes to New York City from the likes of Frank Sinatra or Billy Joel, then you will thoroughly enjoy Zhonray's single, "New York Situation," as it is an easy listening song with heartfelt vocals and well balanced synth instruments.

RadioIndy is pleased to present Love Revue with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Love Revue "

RadioIndy is pleased to present Love Revue with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Love  Revue "

Smart and catchy pop/rock with decidedly Power Pop leanings is the order of the day on the very fine new self-titled CD from Love Revue. Boasting a post-Beatles-inspired sense of melody and pop precision, Love Revue's irresistible hooks have an altogether classic feel despite the contemporary production values that make this 11-song collection a natural for multiple radio formats. CD opener, "Cooking for One," a low-key gem built on a piano and acoustic guitar backing, sets the bar pretty high for the rest of the disc as it recalls the charms of Badfinger at that classic band's best. "Looking for the One" and "Soothe My Soul" more than ably demonstrate Love Revue's rocking side, while "Strip Me" and "Release" is love ballads of the first order. With the triumphant song "Get Along," Love Revue really proves its mettle with a spirited ELO-influenced creation tailor-made for summer radio and summer fun. Love Revue's CD impresses as an album that succeeds on its own merits: a collection of pure pop songs that will sound as good on the car radio as they will at home.

RadioIndy is pleased to present Reform with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Reformed "

RadioIndy is pleased to present Reform with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Reformed "

Equal parts jazz and instrumental psychedelic / progressive rock, Reform's debut CD, "Reformed," charts a middle ground that ably fuses classic styles and influences - with an unusual twist. With a stellar 6-piece ensemble behind him, harmonica player Àlvaro Fernandez Gavíria's full, lower-octave playing serves as a primary lead instrument for much of the album. With studied restraint, Gaviria's tone – which recalls that of accomplished blues harp-stylist, Corky Siegel, approaches his instrument like a fusion-oriented Miles Davis, drawing out found harmonics within the framework of the band's rich and melodic songscapes. Guitarists Johan Glasson and Peter Åkerberg create the underpinning for Reform's – at times, Steely Dan-like jazz-rock sound, while drummers Anders Bergman and Åke Eriksson provide the forward thrust, effectively filling passages with deft and meticulous hits and textures. Not to go unmentioned, bassist Jesper Bergman and keyboard player, Magnus Ramel's contributions are no less vital - and noteworthy, to Reform's decidedly adventurous leanings. Regardless of whether it's fusion jazz or spacey art rock, Reform's CD is a terrific set of original music by unique players with unbounded skills.

"The Demolished Man" by Amptek and the Exit Strategy (Electronic Artist from Italy)

"The Demolished Man" is the latest release from the talented group Amptek and the Exit Strategy. In this album electronic artist Amptek collaborates with the instrumental ensemble known as the Exit Strategy to create an album filled with a variety of electronic songs that employs a mixture of genres and moods. The track, "Cause and Effect," is a slow moving, thought provoking song in which a crisp and clean piano interacts with the smooth and flowing drums providing a melody that is delicate and moody. "Technology of Power" is a song that is fresh and invigorating as there are edgy guitar hooks and riffs, funky bass lines, and a hue of energy bringing this song together. "Overbearing Future" is a distinctive number that uses a more danceable and distinguished beat, yet is quasi trance-like with moving sounds throughout the song. This album is for people who appreciate introspective electronic music which displays a dynamic balance of multi layered sounds and textures. If this brand of experimental electronic mood music sounds likes something you could appreciate, then you need to add "The Demolished Man" by Amptek and the Exit Strategy to your music collection.

"Aurora" by Spiker (Electronic Artist from Czechoslovakia)

"Aurora" is the latest release from Spiker. It is a collection of genial and calm electronic compositions for creating a relaxed atmosphere. "Sunup" is a song in which a subdued drum rhythm interacts with a frolicking flute line. "Butterfly" is a tune that has an electro-Latin feel and features a female vocalist crooning softly. "Bearer" is a little bit more energized, with spacey piano sounds and a briskly stuttering drum beat. This is an album that blurs many genres of music into a seamless collection of electronic music that soothes as much as it inspires. If you appreciate contemporary, chilled-out background music then Spiker's "Aurora" is an album for you.
