Bobby Broom: Soul Fingers

Read "Soul Fingers" reviewed by Jim Trageser

A thematic sequel to his 2007 release, Song and Dance, Bobby Broom's Soul Fingers is a deep-pile take on late 1960s--early 1970s pop, with Broom in his best Wes Montgomery vein, giving new soul-jazz life to one-time chart hits. And yet, it's also a break from Song and Dance because Broom has changed his ...

Steve Khan: Public Access / Headline / Crossings

Read "Public Access / Headline / Crossings" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been a great couple of years for Steve Khan fans who are (relatively) new to the guitarist's work, especially his early releases, thanks to UK-based BGO Records.

Sonny Rollins: Road Shows, Vol. 3

Read "Road Shows, Vol. 3" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

The third installment of tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins' live performances, Road Shows, Volume 3 is the most uniformly outstanding of the series. A task that is hard to achieve since the first two albums were superb musical gems in their own right. Despite covering a span of 11 years the current disc demonstrates extreme thematic cohesiveness, ...

The Complete Arista Albums Collection

Read "The Complete Arista Albums Collection" reviewed by John Kelman

John Scofield: Peaceful Pursuits

Read "John Scofield: Peaceful Pursuits" reviewed by John Kelman

Sometimes a recording comes together easily, with a minimum of muss or fuss. Other times, life seems to conspire against it, but that doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't get done, or that it suffers as a result. Sometimes, in fact, it can make the end result even better. For John Scofield-- one-third of a power trifecta ...

Steve Khan: The Making of "Parting Shot"

Read "Steve Khan: The Making of "Parting Shot"" reviewed by Steve Khan

The term, “parting shot" can certainly be interpreted in any number of ways. Perhaps for most of us, it would be best defined like this: “a threat, insult, condemnation, sarcastic retort, or, gesture delivered while departing." I choose to view it as the latter, thinking of a light punch to the shoulder as the final gesture! ...
