Gurf Morlix: Impossible Blue

Read "Impossible Blue" reviewed by Doug Collette

An object lesson in simplicity, Gurf Morlix' Impossible Blue is one fast shuffle away from pure excellence. Yet even with due recognition for this, his tenth album, the Americana Award-winning man may yet remain better known by association: collaboration with Americana master Peter Case on his eponymous debut and as a fifteen-year tenure Lucinda Williams (during ...

Marianne Faithfull: Come And Stay With Me: The UK 45's 1964-1969

Read "Come And Stay With Me: The UK 45's 1964-1969" reviewed by Doug Collette

If Come And Stay With Me proves anything, it is that Marianne Faithfull was hardly the mere waif she appeared to be during her initial rise to fame. This collection of her earliest work, comprised of the A and B-sides of UK Decca singles plus the Go Away From My World EP, suggest a resilience borne ...

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 ...
