Back in the 1970s, many aspiring young guitarists yearned to play like Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page or Jimi Hendrix, but truly inspired musicians wanted to be as good as John McLaughlin or Steve Morse of the Dixie Dregs (later just The Dregs). While the ...

Levin Minnemann Rudess: From the Law Offices of Levin Minnemann Rudess

Read "Levin Minnemann Rudess: From the Law Offices of Levin Minnemann Rudess" reviewed by John Kelman

It may look good on paper, but you can never really know how “super group" collaborations are going to work out until they actually get together and do something. In the case of the power trio named after its members--bassist/stick player Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, Stick Men), drummer/guitarist Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson, The Aristocrats, ...

Ligro: Dictionary 2

Read "Dictionary 2" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Another great fusion band from Indonesia, Ligro is a co-operative trio comprised of guitarist Agam Hamzah, bassist Adi Darmawan, and drummer Gusti Hendi. Compared to the other Indonesian jazz and fusion artists on the MoonJune roster (Dewa Budjana, Tohpati Ario Hutomo, and the group SimakDialog) Ligro's sound is appreciably more aggressive and, dare I say, more ...

Koby Israelite Balkanizes the Blues (and Vice Versa) on "Blues from Elsewhere"

Koby Israelite Balkanizes the Blues (and Vice Versa) on "Blues from Elsewhere"

If Jimmy Page played accordion, and if Taraf de Haidouks sang the blues, they’d be partying along side Israeli-born, London-based multi-instrumentalist Koby Israelite. With devil-may-care daring, the Balkan and blues-loving maverick brings together the coolest sounds of gritty roots, hard-hitting rock, and the joyous mayhem of a good East European wedding band on Blues from Elsewhere ...

Roine Stolt and Neal Morse: Degrees of Separation

Read "Roine Stolt and Neal Morse: Degrees of Separation" reviewed by John Kelman

2011 has been a banner year for progressive rock, the genre that emerged in the late 1960s, peaked in the mid 1970s, and was threatened with extinction (certainly from a commercial perspective) with the advent of punk and new wave. Of course, prog never went away, and the music of seminal bands such as King Crimson, ...
