Enzo Pietropaoli, Julian Mazzariello, Alessandro Paternesi: The Princess

Read "The Princess" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Piano trio tradizionale, impegnato su “standard del pop" riletti con meditata attenzione, sempre su tempi lenti e con partecipazione emotiva: si può riassumere così questo The Princess, del contrabbassista Enzo Pietropaoli, che vede al pianoforte Julian Mazzariello e alla batteria Alessandro Paternesi.

Il programma si apre con un brano di John Lennon e prosegue ...

Son Volt: Okemah And The Melody Of Riot - Deluxe Edition

Read "Okemah And The Melody Of Riot - Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jay Farrar has hardly shown himself to be a self-promoter during the course of his career. Dating back to the alternative country band Uncle Tupelo through his ongoing solo efforts and intermittently leading the similarly-styled Son Volt, this taciturn man has preferred to make his statements almost solely through his music. An exception to his low ...

Tom Petty: An American Treasure

Read "An American Treasure" reviewed by Doug Collette

In a direct, no nonsense gesture the subject of this anthology would no doubt appreciate, the earliest inclusions on the 4-CD anthology An American Treasure illustrate how Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers forged their own style of songwriting and playing from Bob Dylan, the Byrds and the Rolling Stones. “Surrender," “Listen To Her Heart," and" You're ...

Nouveau Fusion: Superette And Visitors

Read "Nouveau Fusion: Superette And Visitors" reviewed by Doug Collette

Bereft of forced funk and over-complicated compositions, jazz-rock fusion can be as liberating as the best rock and roll. That is, if the technical expertise brought to bear is restrained and sublimated to the unity of the ensemble and the musicians involved play with the unity of a true band. Then the emotional expression usually contained ...

Boz Scaggs: Out Of The Blues

Read "Out Of The Blues" reviewed by Doug Collette

It's been quite a while since Boz Scaggs' massive commercial breakthrough with Silk Degrees (Columbia, 1976), but even longer since he debuted as a solo artist, upon his departure from The Steve Miller Band, with his eponymous (domestic) debut album. Permeated with a soulful sense of the blues---even apart from the late Duane Allman's now-famous incendiary ...

Hal Willner's Rock 'n' Rota

Read "Hal Willner's Rock 'n' Rota" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

"The whole is greater than the sum of its parts." Anyone who has ever been at an all-star event--especially if that was a tribute concert--has learned the importance of Aristotle's maxim the hard way. Maybe the occasion was momentous, the cast probably star-studded, the heart certainly in the right place and the expectations high... however, at ...

Gideon King: Street Jazz

Read "Gideon King: Street Jazz" reviewed by Paul Naser

New York based guitarist/composer/ songwriter Gideon King is no stranger to the city. Growing up there, he is well positioned to tell a story or two about the place. This is just what he sets out to do with his forthcoming release with his band City Blog, entitled Upscale Madhouse. Far from a condemnation, the title ...

Gene Clark sings For You and A Trip Through The Rose Garden

Read "Gene Clark sings For You and A Trip Through The Rose Garden" reviewed by Doug Collette

The legacy of the Byrds looms large in the annals of contemporary rock, ever increasingly so as it pertains to the late Gene Clark. One of its main vocalists, he is usually seen stage center in the alignment of the original band in performance, a position that stands as an apt metaphor for his contributions to ...

Radio Underground at The Last Stop Sports Bar

Read "Radio Underground at The Last Stop Sports Bar" reviewed by Doug Collette

Radio Underground
The Last Stop Sports Bar
Winooski, Vermont
May 6, 2018

It's a special pleasure to catch a band on the rise, and even more so at the threshold of a breakthrough. Chicago at Tanglewood in 1970 come to mind as does the Who at Fillmore East in 1968. ...

Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary

Read "Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

More than any other person, Leonardo Pavkovic has made me write some crazy shit.

Pavkovic is the primal force behind the joyously eclectic MoonJune Records, which he established in 2001. “Established" may not be the right word: “I am truly an unusual and rules breaking call-it-record-company with a 'label' identity despite the fact that ...
