John Hiatt: The Eclipse Sessions

Read "The Eclipse Sessions" reviewed by Doug Collette

Since John Hiatt hit his artistic and commercial stride with Bring The Family (A&M, 1987), the most listenable and durable albums of his have been those recorded with a band like the one appearing there (eventually known as Little Village: Ry Cooder, Nick Lowe and Jim Keltner).

John Hiatt and the Goners: Beneath this Gruff Exterior

Read "Beneath this Gruff Exterior" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

John Hiatt and Sonny Landreth—nothing, and I mean nothing could be better. John Hiatt has advanced to the forefront of American rock songwriters, a group of musicians that include Warren Zevon, Rodney Crowell, Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and John Prine. Sonny Landreth is the stratospheric slide guitarist who knows no near competitor sporting a bottleneck on his/her little finger.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
