Rolling Stones: Steel Wheels Live

Read "Rolling Stones: Steel Wheels Live" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Rolling Stones Steel Wheels Live Eagle Rock Entertainment 2020 The Rolling Stones have previously covered their Steel Wheels (Rolling Stones, 1989) tour on Live At The Tokyo Dome 1990 (Eagle, 2012), but given its significance in their career timeline, it's no surprise that the band has decided to revisit it again. It is, however, no criticism of Steel Wheels Live to state its almost subliminal temptation to suggest that a viewer who has ...

Stones From the Inside: Rare and Unseen Images

Read "Stones From the Inside: Rare and Unseen Images" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

Stones From the Inside: Rare and Unseen Images Bill Wyman 272 Pages ISBN: 978-1788840699 Acc Art Books 2020 The most important musician in a band is the drummer. Everyone agrees that no group is better than its drummer. Then there are the singers—aka the frontmen—and the lead guitarists, and finally, there are the bassists. The bassist is the other half of what constitutes a rhythm section. The rhythm section is the heart of ...

The Rolling Stones: Let It Bleed: 50th Anniversary Limited Deluxe Edition

Read "Let It Bleed: 50th Anniversary Limited Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Rolling Stones' Let It Bleed 50th Anniversary Limited Deluxe Edition is both more and less of what usually comprises such milestone packages. And that's whether it's perceived as a magnificent scrapbook or a veritable mobile museum. There is certainly much more in terms of peripherals included, such as the hand-numbered replica-signed lithographs, a full-color poster, plus an 80-page hardcover book that includes an essay by journalist David Fricke and never-before-seen photos by the band's tour photographer Ethan Russell. But, ...

Rolling Stones: Bridges To Buenos Aires

Read "Rolling Stones: Bridges To Buenos Aires" reviewed by Doug Collette

Rolling Stones Bridges To Buenos Aires Eagle Rock Entertainment 2019 Bridges to Buenos Aires is the second Rolling Stones concert release this year from the iconic band's world tour in support of Bridges to Babylon (Virgin America, 1997). And, while the decision may be questionable from a marketing point of view , the fact is this second title has every bit the production and perhaps even more passion and precision in the playing so evident ...

BOOK REVIEW

Can't Give It Away On Seventh Avenue: The Rolling Stones And New York City

Read "Can't Give It Away On Seventh Avenue: The Rolling Stones And New York City" reviewed by Doug Collette

Can't Give It Away on Seventh Avenue: The Rolling Stones and New York City Christopher McKittrick 256 pages ISBN: #978-1642930399 Post Hill Press2019 Based on his extremely well-wrought prologue, Christoper McKittrick's Can't Give It Away on Seventh Avenue would seem to be based on a very finite premise. But it's a deceptively complex one and to his great credit, the writer balances the main theme, accurately paraphrased on the back cover with the ...

FILM REVIEW

Bridges To Bremen

Read "Bridges To Bremen" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Rolling Stones Bridges To Bremen Eagle Rock 2010 Stunned by the brilliant pacing of the two and half hours plus that comprises the Rolling Stones' Bridges To Bremen, it's easy to see why Paul Sexton turns borderline breathless during the course of his essay in the booklet enclosed in the two-CD/DVD package. To the author's credit though, his comprehensive exposition of details about the iconic group's performance, near the end of a massive tour ...

FILM REVIEW

The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus - Deluxe Edition

Read "The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus - Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Rolling Stones Rock And Roll Circus Deluxe Edition ABKCO 2019 The limited Deluxe Edition of The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus may rescue the film from remaining (arguably) one of the lost artifacts of contemporary rock and roll. Originally set for 2019 release in this format while the iconic band was on the road in North America, a delay due to Mick Jagger's health issues now has the CD/DVD/Blu Ray and digital ...

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.
