Read "Lydia Pense & Cold Blood: The Endless Summer of Love" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Fifty years ago, the Woodstock Festival blazed the music scene and put modern society on the map. Yes, it was the era of hippies, counterculture, peace, love, and dope. The west coast made its own lasting impression with the far-out, peaceful, yet happening, streets of San Francisco. The rich music scene was as potent as the ...

Holdsworth played the intimate and superbly sound engineered Alvas Showroom in San Pedro, CA many ...

Read "Woodstock—Back to the Garden: 50th Anniversary Experience" reviewed by John Kelman

First things first. For all but the most committed of fans, knowledge of what transpired, how it transpired and when it transpired at the now-legendary 1969 Woodstock Music & Arts Fair has, despite a variety of initial, 25th and 40th Anniversary audio and video releases, been severely limited.

Julian Lage: Love Hurts

Read "Love Hurts" reviewed by Chris Mosey

Julian Lage is a tremendously talented acoustic guitarist and by all accounts a polite, mild mannered kind of guy. Though this might not be the whole story. The cover picture of his album is of twenty used matches, which is thought to refer to his worries of becoming burnt-out after being hailed as a child prodigy ...

The Complete Jan Akkerman: Focusing on a Life's Work

Read "The Complete Jan Akkerman: Focusing on a Life's Work" reviewed by John Kelman

Read "Live from Stern Grove Festival" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Putting together your follow-up can't be easy when your self-produced, self-titled debut wins the notoriously competitive Best Tropical Latin Album GRAMMY® Award. Where could trumpeter Steffen Kuehn (from Germany) and pianist Christian Tumulan (from Mexico) lead the Pacific Mambo Orchestra (PMO) from there?

Tumulan and Kuehn smartly construct PMO's second release to do what ...
