The Sextones: Moonlight Vision

Read "Moonlight Vision" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Led by songwriter, singer and guitarist Mark Sexton, The Sextones retreated to the relative isolation of Prairie Sun Studios in Sonoma (one of Tom Waits' favorite recording locations) to lay down their full-length debut. “One of the intentions of Moonlight Vision's production was to have a sonically classic sounding album--sounds that are reminiscent of music we ...

L'ultimo hipster. La vita e la musica di Mark Murphy

Read "L'ultimo hipster. La vita e la musica di Mark Murphy" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Non trovate accenni a Mark Murphy nelle più recenti storie del jazz, neanche il nome. Una lacuna che appare inspiegabile (a differenza di Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormè e Tony Bennett) che si giustifica solo col ritardo a collocare il cantante di Syracuse in una prospettiva storica.

Eppure già prima della sua scomparsa -il ...

Dan Hicks And The Hot Licks: Greatest Licks - I Feel Like Singin'

Read "Greatest Licks - I Feel Like Singin'" reviewed by Chris Mosey

You never knew quite where you were with Dan Hicks And The Hot Licks--that was the great thing about them. Sometimes Hicks would come on stage looking like Cab Calloway in a red jacket, rainbow tie and black hat. Next night he'd be in his psychedelic cowboy outfit. And he nearly always wore a sardonic look ...

Madeleine Peyroux: Secular Hymns

Read "Secular Hymns" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

A vent'anni dalla sua opera prima, Dreamland, la quarantatreenne cantante nativa di Athens (Georgia americana) e parigina d'adozione sforna il settimo album interamente a suo nome, in cui convivono anime diverse (e non è una novità), nel rispetto del titolo anche proprio come spettro temporale. È così che l'iniziale “Got You on My Mind" ci rimanda ...

Proseguono le riedizioni dei dischi della Xanadu grazie all'accordo tra Zev Feldman e Jordi Soley di Elemental Music e la società The Orchard, attuale proprietaria dell'etichetta fondata da Don Schlitten. Dopo un primo assaggio di sei dischi uscito qualche mese fa, il nuovo capitolo della Master Edition Series è corposo e ci dà l'occasione per rievocare ...
