Doug Collette's Best Releases of 2018

Read "Doug Collette's Best Releases of 2018" reviewed by Doug Collette

It wasn't hard in the least to compile a 'Best of...' list for 2018. The titles were self-evident as they rolled out, with almost clockwork regularity, over the course of the twelve months, ultimately comprising what I kept going back to most often during the year, enjoying each one more (and in a slightly different way) ...

Whose Hat is This?: Everything's OK

Read "Everything's OK" reviewed by Doug Collette

On Everything's OK, the core of the Tedeschi Trucks Band, plus vocalist Kokayi, present a live rendition of a spontaneous collaboration captured in December 2017. Free-form in both concept and execution, the group offers a the sophomore album for those who like their sounds as liberated as they are liberating. As such, it may well serve ...

Eagles: Legacy

Read "Legacy" reviewed by Doug Collette

Sometimes a gift box is just a gift box and that's certainly true of Eagles' Legacy. Not to disparage its ample resources, this is not quite the definitive history of these commercial kingpins of the Seventies. But then, there's never been one, at least in any format similar to this: Selected Works (Elektra, 2000) comes close, ...

Julian Lage Trio
Flynn Center for the Performing Arts
Burlington, Vermont
December 2, 2018

It was altogether fitting that guitarist Julian Lage led his trio onto a small stage surrounded on three sides by the modified stadium seating in place at FlynnSpace this early December evening. All the better for the ...

Fred Hersch: Fred Hersch Trio '97 @ The Village Vanguard

Read "Fred Hersch Trio '97 @ The Village Vanguard" reviewed by Doug Collette

Pianist Fred Hersch's discography has been both broadening and deepening in recent years. Besides solo and group recordings, he has released collaborations such as Live in Healdsburg (Anzic, 2018), with multi-instrumentalist Anat Cohen. In addition, the archiving of his past work has borne fruit in the form of a remastered Heartsongs (Sunnyside, 2018) and now Fred ...

Thanks A Lot Mr Kibblewhite
Roger Daltrey
272 Pages
ISBN: #978-1250296030
Henry Holt and Co.
2018

Unlike most rock and roll memoirs, Roger Daltrey's is not a tell-all. Far from it, because, like most interviews the author conducts, Thanks A Lot Mr Kibblewhite is based on the 'less said ...

John Medeski: John Medeski's Mad Skillet

Read "John Medeski's Mad Skillet" reviewed by Doug Collette

Steeped in, but hardly a slave to, the milieu of the Crescent City, John Medeski (of Medeski, Martin & Wood fame) recorded in The Big Easy with sousaphonist Kirk Joseph and drummer Terence Higgins (both natives of New Orleans and members of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band), along with guitarist Will Bernard, one of the unsung ...

Rolling Stones: Voodoo Lounge Uncut

Read "Rolling Stones: Voodoo Lounge Uncut" reviewed by Doug Collette

Rolling Stones
Voodoo Lounge Uncut
Eagle Vision
2018

If there's anything better than issuing a previously-unreleased recording of some kind, it's putting out a fully-restored piece once available only in part. As indicated by its title, the Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge Uncut represents the full and complete performance, in proper running ...

Lee Michaels: Dinosaurs Still Rule!

Read "Lee Michaels: Dinosaurs Still Rule!" reviewed by Doug Collette

Even if you came of age in the Seventies, you may still need to refresh your memory about how Lee Michaels made a name for himself. The memory lapse may very well be due to the fact that, as Michaels appeared in performance, it was (and still is) altogether startling to see him playing (usually a ...

Seth Yacovone Band and Radio Underground: Rockin' the Green Mountains

Read "Seth Yacovone Band and Radio Underground: Rockin' the Green Mountains" reviewed by Doug Collette

Teeming as it is with diversity on so many fronts, it is altogether surprising the Burlington Vermont music scene suffers from a distinct lack of rock and roll. Perhaps it's the self-consciously hip factor often afflicting the community, but the likes of the Seth Yacovone Band and Radio Underground exist as something approaching an endangered species ...
