Page 10 POST-GAZETTE, AUGUST 28, 2015 . reviewing JOSH MAXEY- CELEBRATION OF SOUL Miles High Records In the tenth release of a series of recordings featur- ing 50 original songs and 20 musicians, Josh Maxey shines as guitarist, com- poser, improviser, teacher, and bandleader. Members of the ensemble who have played on the previous nine recordings in this series in- clude Brian Charette, organ; Rodney Jones, jazz guitar; Chase Baird, saxophone; and Jeremy Noiler on drums. Jazz guitarist extra- ordinaire, Maxey leads the way on cuts such as, "Brook- lyn Sunrise," the upbeat title track "Celebration of Soul," plus the catchy "Light & Shade," and the sum total of "Culmination." Picking up the pace is the spiraling "Cycles of Sound," the rapid- fire beat of "Blues for Page," and the pensive sound of "Colorado Sunset." Three bonus tracks have a radio mix of "Cycles of Sound," "Light & Shade," and "Culmi- nation," Maxey's brush strokes throughout encom- pass textures and emotions of a musical masterpiece of many colors that highlight his ability as a prolific musician. FANTASTIC FOUR- MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK Sony Music Ent. Marco Beltrami and Philip Glass are responsible for the entertaining music on this exciting soundtrack that ac- companies a re-imagining of Marvel Comics' first and longest-running superhero team, the Fantastic Four. Beltrami possesses a resume that includes films ranging from epic drama to dark com- edy, and has been nominated twice, for Academy Awards. Glass has shown consis- tency, having composed over 28 operas and 10 sympho- nies in his productive body Of work over the past quarter- century. His honors include three Academy Award nomi- nations and, in 1999 won the Golden Globe for his soundtrack to The Truman Show. The track list has "Fantastic Four Prelude," "All My Faith," "Launch One," "Ben's Drop," "Father and Son," and "Strength in Num- bers." The film is an adven- ture in itself, and the potpourri of music serves to enhance the journey! THE VATICAN TAPES - MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK . Lakeshore Records Joseph Bishara is a mas- ter of music suspense and has the ability to put fear in your mind, simply with his music. If you've never expe- rienced the "master" in ac- tion, The Vatican Tapes is a good place to start. The title track opens with a horror tinge, defining the terms of "demonic, exorcism, good and evil." Put on all the lights in the house and get swept into the darkness of "Sleeping Possessed," and the heart- throbbing "Unconscious Pos- session." Then Bishara floods your mind with the haunting "Drowning Inno- cents," but not before mak- ing you even more paranoid with the sound of foot- steps on "Hall Follower." You will feel your heart begin to race as the strains of mixed sounds create a scary vision in your head while listening to "At the Vatican," the pounding "Exorcism Escalates," the darkness of "The Stigmata," winding down with the spine-tingling "Tell Them I Am Here," and the. finale in the form of "Basement Tapes." A soundtrack that will make you want to confess your sins. PIXELS: THE MOVIE - MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK Var6se Sarabande Pixels: The~ Movie has a premise of aliens picking up video feeds of classic arcade games, considering them to be an attack of sorts. The aliens, in turn, use the video games to attack the Earth. With a sci-fi edge to the sounds, Henry Jackman de- livers 21 brief tracks in a col- lection that lasts a mere 37+ minutes, tracks that are sprinkled throughout the movie. Setting the tone with =Invasionf Jackman contin- ues to pour it on to feed the pixels, with tracks such as "Conspiracy Theory," "Hand- Eye Coordination," bringing in the reinforcements via "Call in the Cavalry," and the charging "Power Up." Pixels: The Movie creates the images that form in your mind, but Jackman's music is the true picture in your mind, as he continues to "push the envelope" with, "Trophy for the Victors," "Shoot Em Up," "Mothership," the clatter of "Roll Out the Barrels," ending it all with "Arcaders '82."

Hynes and three city offi- cials being pulled in a dingy by two young men up to their knees in water after almost 12 inches of rain fell in 40 hours. All four officials were wearing their suits with ties on. God forbid they dress- down for the flood waters. Today, politicians would be out there with their pant legs pulled up wading in the water. However, back then, I guess a pol needed to stay above the fray as, they say. By the way, it was an elec- tion year and Hynes was about to face James Michael Curley in the legend's last run for public office. You can bet that Curley wouldn't have been seen by photographers being pulled around like some ancient king. For pub- licity, Curley might have gone for a swim.
