Colorado-based guitarist Janet Feder has developed a highly personal musical language, drawing inspiration from folk, jazz, minimalism, classical, avant-garde and even pop. Since the early nineties she began experimenting with her guitar, preparing it in different tunings, attaching objects to the strings, developing a unique original sound of her own. “T H I S C L O S E”, her fifth solo album, is Feder’s most fully realized album, featuring nine haunting songs. She manages to create a intimate sonic atmosphere in each of these songs, still, each sounds as a distilled essence of a much larger and deeper musical idea, leaving the listener with lingering thoughts. In these songs, Feder explores the timbral scope of her prepared guitars, let these instruments resonate in the studio space, surrounding the guitars with delicate handmade and found sounds and minor instrumental contributions from an impressive set of supporting musicians.

Tony Fontane – An Evening Concert by Tony Fontane (1965/2015) [Qobuz 24-96]

FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | Time – 00:38:57 minutes | 802 MB | Genre: Gospel, Soul, Folk
Studio Master, Official Digital Download  – Source: Qobuz | Front Cover | Label: RCA Records

Tony Fontane was born Anthony Trankina on Sept. 18, 1925, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. After a stint in the Coast Guard during World War II, he hit the nightclub circuits in New York and Chicago hoping for a break as a singer. Using the stage name Tony Fontane, he won the Major Bowes Amateur Hour, which started him on a career as a popular singer. He recorded for Mercury Records, with his biggest hits being “The Syncopated Clock” and “Cold, Cold Heart,” which sold 1.4 million records in 1950. He toured Australia in two shows, and made several hit records in that country. In 1957, back in the United States, Fontane was involved in a car crash that put him in a coma for more than a month and severely threatened his life. After recovering, he devoted his life solely to Christian music and, by the 1960s, was one of the most famous gospel singers in the world. A recording contract with RCA produced 20 or more very successful gospel albums. On June 30, 1974, Fontane died at the age of 48. His funeral at Forest Lawn Memorial Park was attended by an estimated 10,000 people.
