Ben Sidran: Renaissance Man

Read "Ben Sidran: Renaissance Man" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

The only appropriate person to tell the story of Ben Sidran is Ben Sidran. And, that is exactly what he did in his “autobiography/memoir" Ben Sidran: A Life in Music.

Read "Things Have Changed" reviewed by Doug Collette

Bettye LaVette's Things Have Changed isn't merely a homage to Bob Dylan, it is also a remarkable combination of invention and polish, as arresting in production, arrangement and playing as in the novel choice of songs.

Rock Candy: Montrose (eponymous) & Paper Money

Read "Rock Candy: Montrose (eponymous) & Paper Money" reviewed by Doug Collette
