The background about this great fantastic live recording
For many years Gino Vannelli has received a warm welcome and maximum attention in the Netherlands. With much success on the charts, especially in the 80’s with ‘Black Cars’ and ‘Hurts to be in Love’ being many station’s regular play list. From 2006 to 2008 he chose to live in the area around Amersfoort during some of his ‘protracted stays’ in Europe. He would use a band of Dutch musicians, give lessons, organise workshops and use the Netherlands as a base for smaller tours in Italy, France and Scandinavia. In 2008 he returned to the North Sea Jazz Festival, living out ‘The Dutchbeat’, a landmark song describing his observations and impressions during his stay in Holland culminating in the 2009 album ‘ A Good Thing’. Abandoning the usual loaded questions, his songs, took on more fanciful moods, with heady grooves, a touch of humour, as a kind of coming to terms and salve on old wounds, Furthermore, ‘A Good Thing’ consists of twenty-three newly-written poems Gino Vannelli composed during his ‘Gypsy Days’ in the Netherlands. As regards the poetry, ‘The Falconer’, is considered to be a testament to his verse skills and mirror of his truest beliefs. In 2009, record in Portland Oregon,‘The Best and Beyond’ was released. In a way it is the ultimate musical statement of Gino Vannelli. It was the realisation of a long cherished idea, the recording of the popular successes with new, fresh arrangements, benefiting from life’s experiences and knowledge (and technology). In a matching book called ‘Stardust in the Sand’, Gino Vannelli exposes himself with collected memories, stories, impressions and thoughts together with relevant photographs taken, beginning with his early days as a drumming toddler. Entire Gino Vannelli? The whole story? Hardly! Because here is something yet new!

The first official release of the live recording of his legendary performance with The Metropole Orchestra in DenHaag in 2002 had to come out first.                        With his double staved charts in hand, Gino sat with Holland’s top orchestrater’s to come up with new and fresh big-band arrangements of "Brother To Brother", "Black Cars" or "People Gotta Move"—in all, 12 of Gino Vannelli-classics dating from 1974 to1997. Another dream realised—a truly innovative effort, that is  Gino Vannelli’s own.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

The Metropole Orchestra, with conductor Dick Bakker at the helm, delivers pure excitement with amazing conviction and appreciation of Gino Vanneli’s music. Gino Vannelli flows with exuberant dynamics and manages to deliver lesser known songs such as "King For A Day" with a dizzying high. Their version of "Hurts To Be In Love" is both tender and layered with interesting tones and textures. In all, this work is another step forward in Gino Vannelli continuing growth. In light of such musical works hardly ever being conceived, let alone performed by such capable musicians and an artist, it ranks as one of Gino’s breakthrough innovations. 

Great tunes, arrangements, performances, an enthusiastic audience, Gino Vannelli & The Metropole Orchestra are truly a one-of-kind experience

The first collaboration between Gino Vannelli & The Metropole Orchestra actually took place in Rossendaal Holland, during 2000. It was the beginning of an extremely creative partnership and the logical progression of the 70’s Vannelli sound. Two years later in 2002 their joint performance at the legendary North Sea Jazz Festival was regarded as a momentous collaboration of jazz, modern contemporary and big band. 

About The Metropole Orchestra
A Dutch cultural institution, founded in 1945, the ensemble achieved a good reputation during the entertainment tristesse of the post war years when it came to bringing top-class performances somewhere between jazz, pop and classical music to the people. Originally planned to be a radio orchestra, Metropole quickly conquered the restricting boundaries of that medium, raised cheers on stage and in the soundtrack scene. Eventually considered to be the "biggest professional orchestra" in the world. It was a permanent guest on numerous stages at The North Sea Festival, was Grammy-awarded and can look back on an extensive accumulation of live experiences. Including world stars in jazz (Pat Metheny), pop (Joe Cocker), soul (Chaka Khan) and world music (Mariza). In 2002, conductor Dick Bakker guided the team through sweeping Gino Vannelli arrangements. Since 2005, famous composer and arranger Vince Mendoza presides over the musicians whose reputation can be proved by 4 grammy awards and 16 nominations.


About The North Sea Jazz Festival                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Paul Acket, founder of this mammoth festival and publisher of diverse pop magazines such as Musikexpress or PopFoto, realized his plan to establish a jazz festival of a new style in DenHaag in 1976. The summer musical event has become one of the biggest get-togethers of contemporary jazz in the world. Already at the debut, Paul Acket´s concept to synchronically present several concerts in halls of all sizes proved the key to its success. The listeners can wander from one concert to another to experience and discover established stars of the scene and talented newcomers on the same day. The organisers were at all times unreserved towards other kinds of music that are based on jazz. Soul, funk, pop and on the spot with their most important protagonists (Miles Davis, Wynton Marsalis, Patti Labelle, Carlos Santana,...) every year guarantees an extensive live experience. Since 2006 North Sea Jazz Festival takes place in Rotterdam during the last weekend of July each time, always featuring the stars of the season, a 72-hour mega event, demanding a great deal of musicians and audience.

The Swedish guitar player Pelle Holmberg with his band Pelle Holmberg Group from the South of Sweden has just released a great groovy instrumental CD titled "Ghost Ship"! Outstanding bluesy funky slick jazzfusion with a slight touch of rock maybe, very well played. Both in the way of playing and the style it makes me think on similar great famous guitar player like for example Robben Ford, Oz Noy and others. This is the 2nd album of Pelle Holmberg Group, the former album was released in 2011. The new CD is available exclusively at Blue Desert Music! Order it by sending us an email or call us. Read more about Pelle Holmberg Group and the CD here below were also some sound clips are available. Read more about it here below!

The funky Swedish singer/keyboard player/composer Andreas Aleman has released his brand new CD (his 3rd album in all) in Sweden on Saturday December 13th 2014! This time it is a slick groovy Christmas CD with the title "Home For Christmas". 9 original composed songs which he has written together with Brian Hobbs like he use to work with. Our favourite vocalist Mr Michael McDonald also sings duet with Andreas Aleman in the great song "Celebrate The Season" which also includes a great soulful gospel Choir. This track has been played quite often on the Swedish Radio P4 and also on other radio stations! Order the CDn at Blue Desert Music by sending us an email! Read more about the new CD and about the musician Andreas Aleman here below!

The instrumental Swedish group Peter Martinsson Group features guitar player Peter Martinsson and drummer Ulf Becker. These two genlemen has known each other in 42 years since childhood! (That's why the number "42" is written on the cover of their new CD.) In the year 2012 Peter Martinsson Group released their debut CD together: "Guitar State Of Mind" (Grooveyard Records), a cool Heavy guitar based album that lovers of great groovy guitar music took to their hearts, and which also received quite many great record reviews, from for example rock journalist Janne Stark on the guitar magazine Fuzz. (Janne Stark was by the way one of the persons who made the record companyt Grooveyard Records opened their Eyes & ears for this Group which resulted in the record deal for their first CD). Now it's time for their 2nd album "No Grey" which they have released on their own. The title of the record ("No Grey") is some knd of describtion of that it includes many kind of musical styles. Ulf Becker is playing all drums on the CD, while Mr. Peter Martinsson plays except all guitars, even bass, organ and keyboards. It's produced by both these gentlemen together. Even if the debut album from 2012 by PMG was great, so do I think that their new CD "No Grey" is EVEN stronger than their debut CD! Think: Great instrumental guitar oriented music like a perfect mix by jazzfusion, blues, rock & funk delivered of guitar heroes performed by for example artists as for example Jimi Hendrix, Steve Lukather, Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, Scott Henderson and similar guitar players, all backed up by an incredible heavy funky groove on drums! The Music goes in other words straight in Your heart! Listen to short teasers from the album and read more here below.

On February 1st 2014 the group Colorstone from Malmoe released their 2nd album titled "Steam" and this will of course be celebrated with a release party at KB (Kulturbolaget) the very same day!
The Swedish melodic hard rock group Colorstone from Malmoe have has quite many success all over the world.
Their big selling debut album Into The Garden includes 17 tracks plus a bonus-DVD including a documentary plus 2 music videos, and it is released as CD in Sweden, Germany, Japan, Korea, China & Taiwan.
The debut-CD of Colorstone is since quite a long time very much aired at radio stations over the world like for example in Sweden, Germany, England, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, USA, Japan, Korea, Taiwan & China.
The interesting thing in it all where it's been aired on radio stations in different countries, is that there ain't any perticular song that has been chosen from the CD as a single, the different radio stations have instead been choosen different tracks from all of the great tracks of the CD! (Not SO strange by the way - because this is a REALLY great album ALL over! Not any track is weak on it!)
Great hard rock with good harmonies, good vocals and cool guitar riffs! With clear influences from their favorite groups and artists like for example Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, Jimi Hendrix & also in fact maybe some hint of U2 maybe, so it isn't that strange that this musical blended mix is a success!
The group Colorstone was formed by: Johan Dahlstrm - Lead & Backing Vocals (ex Silver Mountain); Fredrik Bergengren - Guitars, Keyboards & Backing Vocals (ex Time Gallery, Mikael Wiehe & Tricky Track); Jonas Sandquist - Bass & Backing Vocals (ex Wasteland); Olle Nilsson - Drums, Percussion & Backing Vocals (ex Tricky Track).
The debut-CD of Colorstone "Into The Garden has also got quite many good reviews and a growing fan base over the world!
This of course something that we at the record store Blue Desert Music want to celebrate in some great way! (Read more about it & listen here below with "clicking here"!)
