Our Sights & Sounds: September & October 2018

Josh Groban. Bridges. CD $18.99. Deluxe CD $23.99. RRC applies. This is Josh Groban's first album to include original music since 2013 and, perhaps, his most ambitious. Recorded in Los Angeles, London and New York with multiple producers, this album also finds the superstar singing in multiple languages including English, French, Italian and Spanish. In a statement, Josh says that the album "both 'bridges' my musical worlds old and new, and also hopefully plays a small part in connecting people in that unique way music can." (Warner. September)

John Coltrane. Both Directions at Once. CD $13.99. 2-CD set $20.99. LP $28.99. 2-LP set $37.99. RRC applies. Unknown until 2004 and unheard until now, these recordings by the John Coltrane Quartet are, as Sonny Rollins says, "Like finding a new room in the Great Pyramid." Recorded at the end of a twoweek run at Birdland, the music on this album represents one of the most influential groups in music history both performing in a musical style it had perfected and reaching in new directions that were to affect the trajectory of jazz. (Universal. June)

Jill Barber. Metaphora. CD $16.99. RRC Price $15.29. Limited Edition Vinyl $26.99. RRC Price $24.29. The solo follow-up to 2014's Fool's Gold finds the singer-songwriter embracing danceable contemporary pop sounds to address topics like "empowerment, sexual politics, the complications of love and depression."

(Universal. February)

KUNÉ Canada's Global Orchestra. KUNÉ. CD $13.99. RRC Price $12.59. The Royal Conservatory of Music created the KUNÉ ensemble as a celebration of our country’s cultural diversity. The ensemble came together in December 2016, and under the Artistic Direction of David Buchbinder, began the journey to create a band that looks and sounds like Canada today.
