Motel Shot: Expanded Edition

Read "Motel Shot: Expanded Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

With the passage of time, Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett, are unfortunately becoming more and more the unsung heroes of a Seventies rock and roll. The Southern couple not only acknowledged, but built upon roots of blues, folk and country, as well as the soul and r&b influences at the very heart of their style, aided and ...

The Doors' 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "The Doors' 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

In his usual evenhanded, deceptively passionate prose for The Doors' 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, David Fricke neatly encapsulates the combined personal and universal significance of the record. Released in January of 1967, the quartet's debut album, produced by Paul Rothchild, predates other monumental titles of the year--the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper (Parlophone), Jefferson Airplane's Surrealistic Pillow (RCA, ...

Read "Claude Nobs: We All Came Out To Montreux..." reviewed by Ian Patterson

Montreux Jazz Festival is fifty. It's a significant milestone and cause for celebration. No doubt there will be an added festive element to this year's edition of the festival, founded by Claude Nobs--along with pianist Géo Voumard and writer René Langel--in 1967. Yet for many, the celebrations will be tinged with sadness due to the absence ...

Read "OverDOORS" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

However, oddly outside of their most successful hit, “Light My Fire," little of the group's repertoire has been explored by jazz artists. Italian jazz trumpeter and innovative sonic explorer, ...

Warren Haynes: The Timeline of Sco-Mule and Beyond

Read "Warren Haynes: The Timeline of Sco-Mule and Beyond" reviewed by Doug Collette

By all accounts, Warren Haynes is known to be an upbeat forward-thinking individual. In this recent conversation however, he is borderline ebullient. And why not? Last October he aided immeasurably in bringing the forty-five year career of the Allman Brothers Band to a spectacular close. By the time of that historic appearance at New York's Beacon ...

Doors: Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine

Read "Doors: Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine" reviewed by Doug Collette

Given his fascination with media, the late Jim Morrison would no doubt be deeply bemused at the irony of the release of a Doors compilation on cd (a dying configuration) due its popularity as a Record Store Day 2014 issue on vinyl lp (the configuration that won't die).

It's no accident that Bruce Harris' ...
