For those of you not familiar with Jorn Lande, he is one of the most powerful and impressive vocalist in the melodic rock and metal genres. His voice is extremely similar to David Coverdale's, though he draws obvious inspiration from Phil Lynott and Ronnie James Dio as well. Jorn's had quite the storied career, working with several bands and projects in addition to his solo career.

The Gathering is the ideal way to become more familiar with Jorn Lande's work. It features remixed and in some cases totally rerecorded versions of songs from his early solo albums as well as some side projects. I'm not usually a fan of artists reworking their previous material, but I think Jorn does it well here.

Here's what you get:

From Jorn's 3rd album Out to Every Nation are Something Real, Young Forever, and One Day We Will Put Out the Sun. The somewhat silly bonus track Big from the Japanese import of Out to Every Nation is also included, which makes this of particular interest to those of us who weren't willing to pay the import price for that one song.

From Jorn's 2nd album Worldchanger are Bridges Will Burn, Tungur Knivur, Sunset Station, House of Cards, Worldchanger, and Christine.

From Jorn's debut album Starfire are Gate of Tears and Abyss of Evil.

Wonderful things happen when great musicians collaborate - there's a synergistic effect that drives the music to new heights as each artist, performing at his or her best, pushes the others to do the same. Case in point: The recently released album, "The Gathering" from the Clayton Brothers (brothers Jeff and John, son/nephew Gerald, and family members bonded by the heartstrings Terrell Stafford and Obed Calviare) with guests Wycliffe Gordon and Stefon Harris. Released on the ArtistShare label, the CD starts out with a stunning medium tempo hard bop tune called "Friday Struttin'" that is sassy and soulful, with a nice also sax solo that swings hard Cannonball Adderley style. The intimate cut has rich, warm tones and is gets the job done of whetting your appetite for the rest of the CD, which incorporates various jazz styles and elements.

The more relaxed bossa nova track "Touch The Fog" features guest Stefon Harris playing vibes with a percussive style and nice solo vibes. Listeners will also find a very lyrical and dynamic performance by Jeff Clayton on flute, and an impressive flugelhorn contribution from Terrell Stafford. Wycliffe Gordon joins the ensemble on "This Ain't Nothing But A Party" and every word of the title is true. I'd have to say that it's hard to pick a favorite on this album, but this is probably mine, as it's funky and smooth, with plenty of swagger and a sax solo that just sings to you. Gerald Clayton tickles the ivory keys well with a slamming solo.

"Stefon Fetchin' It" is exactly what the name implies. The track really allows Harris to shine on vibes, with Wycliffe Gordon also chiming in. It's a very technically sound piece that's performed to perfection. Nice horns and percussion!

Commissioned by the North Carolina Symphony to write a group of songs about a prodigal daughter's journey home on a cold, dark, winter's night, songwriter and guitarist Laurelyn Dossett put together a stunning group of traditional musicians to help tell the story. They include Rhiannon Giddens (fiddle), Joe Newberry (banjo, guitar), Mike Compton (mandolin, mandola), and Jason Sypher (bass). The album's first half is "The Gathering: A Winter's Tale in Six Songs." Dossett's compositions are not your typical string band music. We hear thoughtful, inspired music with unique melodies and creative structures. The stage is set as the opening sentiment is expressed: to light a candle for the night is gathering there. The second song in the series asks "Should I follow the lowland light home?" The album's cover art (a watercolor by Kenneth Frazelle) is nothing fancy, but it splendidly paints the Carolina hills with their winter aura and cold sensation. As all the family is on the way, "Redbird" tells us that it's time to get ready for the gathering day with its unique cast of characters. "Redbird Lullaby" is a short, intimate message. "String of Pearls" assumes a devout tone to create a sweetly reverent remembrance of home. The story ends with the moon and sycamore shining with a heart-connecting light like "Diamonds in the Pines." Spare settings provide accessibility to these six songs, but one is also left wondering if the CD shouldn't have also incorporated the orchestra that commissioned the work and will debut it in November 2011 in Raleigh, N.C.

The second half of the album begins with Compton showcasing his arrangement of Bill Monroe's "Old Ebenezer Scrooge.
