Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2021: Herbie Hancock ‘Head Hunters’

Almost fifty years since its release, Head Hunters is an open invitation to pay close attention, to pick up on details we may have missed on the last listen, and to come back time and time again.    

The Avalanches ‘Since I Left You’

Since I Left You was created using more than 3500 samples and original music but it is no cloyed nostalgia trip. Pieced together humbly by Aussies who are probably telling you the truth when they say they listen “to a little bit of everything.”

KT Tunstall on ‘Eye to the Telescope’

Spawning five singles including her biggest hit ‘Suddenly I See’, 'Eye to the Telescope' launched KT Tunstall onto the world stage.

Billie Holiday ‘Lady in Satin’ with Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy

This was the last album to be released in Lady Day's lifetime and one that saw her return to full orchestral arrangements with a poignantly matured voice. Listen to the story and music.

The story behind the album credited with helping launch punk that fused music, poetry, art and theatre in mid-Seventies downtown Manhattan.

“It is not addressed to white people - it does not put you down in any way, it simply ignores you… For my people need all the inspiration and love they can get.” Nina Simone.
