Fifi Mondello - It's True     Jazz, Pop 14/09/2011
Fifi Mondello is not just your typical singer-songwriter. She is a fresh, new voice from a lost age, reminiscent of a bygone era, while rooted firmly in the present.
“It’s True” is a fun, quirky little 60’s flavoured treat - sweet, colourful and decadent.

On closer inspection, though, the upbeat, playful facade masks a lost soul navigating the fall-out from a failed love affair.

Defiant, joyous and uncompromising, “It’s True” celebrates overcoming adversity, and never settling for second best.

Other tracks by Fifi Mondello:  You Make Me Wanna Cry
The Bird's Robe Collaboration Band - Absolute Silence     Jazz, Rock, Experimental, Instrumental 30/08/2011
In 2010, Bird’s Robe conceived the first in a series of collaborative projects combining the talents of various musicians working in Sydney’s experimental / progressive rock music scene.
It may not live up to its name, but this track is the definitive example of collaboration in action. With its jazzy melody evoking Frank Zappa circa 'Hot Rats' it settles in comfortably before giving way to a crunching rock outro worthy of the best prog bands around. Whimsical, exhilarating.

Other tracks by The Bird's Robe Collaboration Band:  Work/Music  -  Equilibrium

Daniel Gassin Trio - 78     Jazz, Acoustic, Instrumental 18/07/2011
The Daniel Gassin Sextet's debut CD has a freshness and drive usually reserved for a live performance. The tight ensemble playing giving voice to Gassin's compositional and pianistic skills.

Kafka Pony - Waltz Schmaltz     Jazz, Instrumental 13/07/2011
Guitarist & composer Mastaneh Nazarian creates original pieces for contemporary jazz trio, exploring new forms and textures. Beware of the twisted, the unusual and the quirky!
This piece was composed as a vehicle for trio improvisation in a relaxed swing setting.  It is a jazz waltz with lots of unexpected turns and spins.  The introduction and ending contrast the mood of the rest of the piece and create a frame for viewing the cyclical inner portion.

Other tracks by Kafka Pony:  Day's Work  -  Samba a la Warsaw
