Julian Lage Trio at Flynn Center for the Performing Arts

Read "Julian Lage Trio at Flynn Center for the Performing Arts" reviewed by Doug Collette

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 ...

Roger Daltrey: Thanks A Lot Mr Kibblewhite - My Story

Read "Roger Daltrey: Thanks A Lot Mr Kibblewhite - My Story" reviewed by Doug Collette

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 ...

Various Artists: Confessin' The Blues

Read "Confessin' The Blues" reviewed by Doug Collette

If it weren't so scrupulously annotated (at least up to a point) or attractively designed, this title might be flippantly described as “The Greatest Hits of the Blues." As is, it is the third in a roots revival series of sorts. Confessin' The Blues follows Chicago Plays the Stones (Raisin' Music, 2018), where a Windy city ...

The Beatles: The Beatles 50th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition

Read "The Beatles 50th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

In keeping with its source, The White Album (Apple, 1968), as a virtual primer of contemporary musical style ranging from the Beach Boys ("Back in the USSR") to Stockhausen ("Revolution #9"), The Beatles 50th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition is a weighty proposition indeed. In fact, it's alternately daunting and imposing in mere physical form: housed in ...

The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Electric Ladyland 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "Electric Ladyland 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Given the voluminous prior excavations of Jimi Hendrix' vault, the producers of and contributors to the Jimi Hendrix Experience's Electric Ladyland 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition deserve some kudos. This 3-CD plus Blu-ray set compares favorably to similarly-conceived archive presentations released coincidental to it, specifically More Blood, More Tracks (Legacy Music, 2018), Vol. 14 of The Bootleg ...

Ace of Cups: Ace of Cups

Read "Ace of Cups" reviewed by Doug Collette

There's a solid Ace of Cups album within the twenty-one plus tracks on this set. Never having released a studio work in the fifty-one years since the group made a name for itself in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury, it only stands to reason AOC would be sorely tempted to make a statement for its debut, particularly in ...
