Bell'Aria - Little Italy (CD)/ Live From Las Vegas (DVD)

From the label that brought you hugely successful adult franchise Celtic Woman, Manhattan Records brings you an exciting new ensemble that moves to the next largest European immigrant community in America right behind the Irish, The Italian-Americans. Bell'Aria is set to move beyond the cultural stereotypes when their debut studio album of Italian-American standards is released this November. Little Italy is a celebration of the music that helped to shape and define the Italian-American experience, not only for immigrants and their families but also the larger American audience that have come to love these classic songs.

Little Italy celebrates love, family, friends, group singing and life itself. It's what Italians do exceptionally well. And that's what Little Italy is all about, resonating at the heart of what is loved by many Americans, finding the Little Italy that is in all of us.

Bell'Aria is featured on a forthcoming PBS special entitled Bell'AriaLive From Las Vegas. PBS will be using the show as part of their pledge drive starting in late November 2010 and in pledge periods beyond.

 The international Irish music phenomenon, Celtic Woman, is renowned for singing inspirational melodies and heartwarming songs that stir fans of all ages and cultures. Their brand-new PBS TV special concert, aptly titled Songs from the Heart, was filmed in HD in the lush Irish country setting of the majestic Powerscourt House & Gardens. Under a dramatic evening summer sky with the backdrop of the historic estate and musical support of a 27 member film orchestra, 20 member Discovery Gospel choir, 12 member Aontas Choir, 10 member Extreme Rhythm Drummers and an 11 piece Bag Pipe ensemble performing rooftop, the radiant Celtic Woman uplifted their adoring audience with Songs from the Heart.

Sarah Brightman - Symphony - Live in Vienna (CD/DVD)

Over the past two and a half decades Sarah Brightman has established herself as the quintessential crossover artist and is the world's biggest-selling soprano of all time, with worldwide sales of more than 26 million albums and over 2 million DVDs. 2008 brought Sarah Brightman's already stellar career to new heights, from the chart-topping Symphony album (her most highly-anticipated studio album in five years) to her first-ever Christmas album (A Winter Symphony) to performing the Olympic theme song at the closing ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics to the launch of her critically-acclaimed Symphony World Tour.

Kicking off that phenomenally successful year, in January 2008, Sarah Brightman recorded and filmed Symphony - Live in Vienna within the mystical walls of Stephansdome Cathedral in the heart of where classical music evolved - Vienna, Austria. Renowned for its awe-inspiring Gothic architecture, the cathedral was the perfect setting to enter the magical world of Symphony lead by the voice of the beautiful, gothic-angel. The concert includes repertoire from her album Symphony and some of her most popular songs ("Phantom of the Opera," "Time to Say Goodbye"). Symphony - Live in Vienna premiered on PBS TV stations in March 2008 and was an immediate hit with viewers.

Now fans have the chance to own the live material in three different formats: a CD version and two different combo package versions - a CD/DVD combo (jewel case) and a DVD/CD combo (in DVD case).

Van Morrison - Astral Weeks: Live at The Hollywood Bowl

Recorded in 1968 when the Belfast-bred, blues-rock music legend Van Morrison was just 22 years old, Astral Weeks immediately received critical acclaim and continues to be cited as one of the greatest albums of the rock era. Subsequently the album has been ranked on numerous Best Albums of All Time lists, including #19 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and the 40th Greatest Album Ever on VH-1's list in 2003. Both Astral Weeks and Moondance (Morrison's next album) were inducted in the Grammy® Hall of Fame.

Astral Weeks became a cult favorite and was seen almost as a religion to many artists. On November 7 and 8, 2008, four decades later, at the age 63, Van Morrison revisited Astral Weeks live in its entirety at the Hollywood Bowl and delivered a jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring performance.

The first half of the show featured Morrison playing timeless classics that have made him a legend, while the second half was the breathtaking performance of the Astral Weeks album. Van Morrison did not simply re-create what he did 40 years ago in a NY studio, but instead took the songs to a dramatically higher contemporary level. The jazz-rooted compositions of Astral Weeks are poetic stories of young love and the quest to find one's place in life. They were, and remain, ideal source material for musical improvisation that gives way to the sense of wonder for which Morrison has always striven.

Lila Downs - Shake Away

"Downs is a Mexican-American singer-songwriter who spellbinds with the ferocious sweep of her voice." - The Boston Globe

Exploring and expressing Mexico's rich culture has been a lifelong passion for vocalist Lila Downs. With a voice that is varied in color and range, Lila cuts a striking figure live as well - she embodies the spirit of her music with an emotion-drenched physicality. Lila's profile was raised significantly with her stunning performance in the hit film Frida, starring Salma Hayek in the title role. Lila also performed the Oscar-nominated song from the film at the Academy Awards ceremony, becoming the first Latina to perform at the telecast. Her new album Shake Away evokes her home country's rich folk-music legacy while pulsing with modern arrangements.

Carrie Rodriguez - She Ain't Me

After her well-received solo debut Seven Angels on a Bicycle, Carrie Rodriguez spent much of 2007 on a whirlwind tour schedule that included opening for friend/fan Lucinda Williams. The Associated Press raved, ". . . her voice has a character few achieve. Rather than a support player taking a minor turn, she uses her first solo album to mark her ground as a singular talent."

Carrie's sophomore release, She Ain't Me, still showcases her intimate croon, but this classically trained singer/songwriter has just begun flexing her artistic muscles. She Ain't Me is an expectation-confounding statement from Carrie, who notes, "Because I took some chances, wrote with some new people and actually co-wrote most of the songs on the album, it's very different."

For She Ain't Me, the Austin-born, Berklee-trained violinist-turned-fiddler teamed with producer Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris, Patti Smith, Kaki King) and wrote with Gary Louris of the Jayhawks, as well as Mary Gauthier, Dan Wilson, and Jim Boquist. The album also features a guest vocal appearance by Lucinda Williams.

Alejandro Escovedo - Real Animal

"This is not only the finest album of Alejandro’s career, for me, it’s the album of the year. And I’ll stand on Bruce Springsteen’s coffee table in Steve Earle’s cowboy boots and say that." - Dave Marsh

Real Animal, Alejandro Escovedo’s ninth solo album and follow-up to 2006’s critically-acclaimed The Boxing Mirror, will be released on June 24, 2008. Produced by Tony Visconti (David Bowie, T.Rex, Thin Lizzy), Real Animal is a collective journey through Escovedo’s various musical incarnations from punk rock to string quintets, and is as introspective as it is retrospective. Recalling the people, places, and influences that helped shape his career, Real Animal represents the primitive aspect of Escovedo’s music — the instinct, the urgency, the survivor mentality that fueled his passion.

Various Artists - Mad Men: Music From The Series, Vol. 1

From Matthew Weiner, AMC and the Emmy® Award-winning executive producer and writer of The Sopranos, comes Mad Men, a provocative new primetime drama about how to sell the truth. Set in 1960 New York, the daring new series is about the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell while their private world gets sold.

Featuring Vic Damone, The McGuire Sisters, Bobby Vinton, Ella Fitzgerald, Rosemary Clooney and more, the soundtrack mirrors not only the time and place, but sets an emotional tone for the critically-acclaimed series. According to Matthew Weiner, "Music on Mad Men is never an accident. The philosophy of the sound was pointed: do as much to enhance the feeling of the period while offering an artistic commentary to the themes of each show." Alexandra Patsavas, Grammy®-nominated music supervisor and founder and owner of Chop Shop Music Supervision, serves as music supervisor for the soundtrack, which takes its place among Patsavas’s impressive credits that include Grey’s Anatomy, The OC, Rescue Me, Gossip Girl, and Without a Trace, among others. There is no question that music helped define that decade and the music plays an important role in the series.

Richard Julian - Sunday Morning in Saturday's Shoes

Call Richard Julian a "singer songwriter" or a "folk artist" if you must, but there's much that sets this artist apart from the pack. Think more Mose Allison...but with an acoustic guitar. Tight compositions. An off-speed wit. Sophisticated, but not precious. And lyrics that fearlessly venture toward the confessional.

Sunday Morning In Saturday's Shoes is Julian's latest and was produced by the legendary Mitchell Froom. Eleven brand new songs recorded live-in-the-studio with as Julian describes "bare-knuckled" abandonment. Joining Julian on this adventure once again were Tim Luntzel (bass) and Dan Reiser (drums), along with Froom's familiar keyboard wizardry making cameo appearances throughout.

Symphony is the soprano's first new studio album since 2003. Produced by her long-time producer Frank Peterson, the diverse repertoire of Symphony will have a broad appeal to both her original fans from her days in Phantom of the Opera and the international smash hit "Time to Say Goodbye" to fans of her more contemporary experiments with classical-rock and electronic-dance styles.

The repertoire ranges from beautiful ballads ("Symphony," "Fleur Du Mal"), epic power rock scores ("I Will Be with You") to interpretations of the work "Jupiter" from Holst's The Planets on "Running" to Faith Hill's "There You'll Be" sung in Italian as "Sarai Qui," and many more, with a colorful variety of male duet partners include Andrea Bocelli on "Canto Della Terra," Fernando Lima (Mexican tenor) on "Pasiòn" (popular telenovella theme song), and Paul Stanley (from Kiss) on "I Will Be with You (Where the Lost Ones Go)."
