King Crimson: Sailors' Tales 1970-1972

Read "Sailors' Tales 1970-1972" reviewed by John Kelman

If it's a fundamental truth that adversity can sometimes bring the absolute best, creatively speaking, out of music and the people who make it, then the roughly 23 months following the release of King Crimson's classic 1969 debut, In the Court of the Crimson King (Island)--and, after a single North American tour, the breakup of its ...

Mahavishnu Orchestra: Apocalypse

Read "Apocalypse" reviewed by Julian Derry

Well, there's not much to say about the new release of Apocalypse. Well, not as much as many Mahavishnu fans had hoped; rumours of a long awaited and much needed remastering of this legendary album, making the rounds of the mailing lists were alas, premature. So what is this CD? Answer: it's the exact same, level-for-level ...

Greg Lake & Keith Emerson: Their Best Work Together

Read "Greg Lake & Keith Emerson: Their Best Work Together" reviewed by John Kelman

While it should come as no surprise that musical heroes from across all genres are beginning to die off, some of the highest profile losses are, in particular, in the rock/pop world, where many of its biggest stars are now in their mid-to-late sixties...or older. Few would disagree that one of the years biggest losses happened ...

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, ...

Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti (Deluxe Edition)

Read "Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti (Deluxe Edition)" reviewed by John Kelman

After nearly five years that saw the group release five albums--from 1969's earth-shattering eponymous debut to 1973's less consistent Houses of the Holy (all on Atlantic Records)--and incessant touring that saw the group break numerous attendance records and reach the top of the charts worldwide, Led Zeppelin finally took a much-needed break in 1974. Still, while ...

Keith Emerson & Greg Lake: Live From Manticore Hall

Read "Live From Manticore Hall" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Emerson, Lake & Palmer were recognized as progressive rock's first super-group, framed on supreme virtuosity, extended compositions, melodic song-forms and over-the-top concerts. But during a 2010 world tour, Keith Emerson (keyboards) and Greg Lake (bass, guitars & vocals) delved a bit inward, like old friends who weathered the storm amid the trials and tribulations of the ...

J.Q. Whitcomb & Five Below Explore Progressive Sounds On New Release

J.Q. Whitcomb & Five Below Explore Progressive Sounds On New Release

In half a dozen words, Tales of Enchantment is six tracks of brain salad revelry. To say “go figure” is tempting, but to further describe this album is more enticing and more respectable. The genre jazz itself is a broad spectrum of music styles, and J.Q. Whitcomb & Five Below’s sonic paintings epitomize this very well. The ...

Jimmy Haslip: Former Yellowjacket Generating a New Buzz

Read "Jimmy Haslip: Former Yellowjacket Generating a New Buzz" reviewed by Richard  J Salvucci

Well, the Joint Base San Antonio Fort Sam Houston News Leader is probably not the best place to look for local jazz updates, even if the venue is on the base. “Tickets for the next Friday Night Jazz concert at the Fort Sam Houston Theater are on sale. Featured artists include the Jeff Lorber Fusion with ...

Sonar: Static Motion

Read "Static Motion" reviewed by John Kelman

At a time when more recordings are released than ever before, it's rare to find a group that not just changes the way music is made, but the way it's defined. That description could easily fit Swiss pianist Nik Bartsch and his longstanding group Ronin, its Ritual Groove Music jettisoning overt virtuosity and conventional form for ...

David Kilminster: Scarlet - The Director's Cut

Read "Scarlet - The Director's Cut" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

UK guitar ace David Kilminster boasts an impressive résumé that includes stints with progressive rock icons such as, keyboardist Keith Emerson (Emerson, Lake & Palmer) and bassist John Wetton (Asia, King Crimson), amid his support for rock legend Roger Waters during the ex-Pink Floyd bassist's 2006 tour. A revered session artist, Kilminster's debut solo outing highlights ...
