Jamie Cullum and Joss Stone
Schlossplatz
Stuttgart Jazz Open
Stuttgart, Germany

The Stuttgart Jazz Open was seeking special things to commemorate the festival's 25th anniversary edition. With a double bill featuring Jamie Cullum and Joss Stone, that goal was accomplished to the delight of a dancing, sellout ...

BANG! The Bert Berns Story

Read "BANG! The Bert Berns Story" reviewed by Doug Collette

BANG! The Bert Berns Story
Abramorama
2018

BANG! The Bert Berns Story compares favorably to The Terry Kath Experience (FilmRise, 2017), not just in the elevated quality of its conception and execution, but in its authorship by an offspring of the subject. Just as the Chicago guitarist's daughter, Michelle Sinclair, helmed the ...

Eric Clapton: Life In 12 Bars: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Read "Life In 12 Bars: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" reviewed by Doug Collette

There's no scarcity of anthologies devoted to the span of Eric Clapton's work throughout his career, so there's a danger the soundtrack to Lili Fini Zanuck's documentary, Life in 12 Bars, will immediately seem redundant. Yet this companion piece to the film is perfectly complementary, deceptively discerning collection, even apart from the previously-unreleased items it contains. ...

The Vintage Years 1970 - 1991

Read "The Vintage Years 1970 - 1991" reviewed by John Kelman

There are bands that manage to carve out a place for themselves in the music world that lasts for decades; there are others who, while having created a name for themselves during their peak years and, while they continue to tour and, even, make the occasional studio album, are invariably best remembered for their seminal early ...

Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story

Jeff Beck
Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story
Eagle Vision
2018

Unlike its decidedly idiosyncratic subject, Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story is a wholly conventional piece of video work focusing almost exclusively on the musical progression of the British guitar hero. It may be intended ...

Chris Squire: Fish Out of Water (Deluxe Edition)

Read "Fish Out of Water (Deluxe Edition)" reviewed by John Kelman

If ever there were an album that deserved the deluxe treatment, it would be Fish Out of Water (Atlantic, 1975), which would turn out to be (more or less) the only solo album ever released by Yes co-founder and electric bass trailblazer Chris Squire. There was a special remastered edition released in 2007 by Castle Music, ...

Incendio: The Fire Within

Read "Incendio: The Fire Within" reviewed by Jim Worsley

If sophisticated, richly dense, multi-layered instrumental music is your thing, then you may already be a fan of the critically acclaimed band Incendio.

Co-founded in 2000 by guitarist Jim Stubblefield, bassist Liza Carbe, and guitarist JP Durand, Incendio boldly blends a plethora of genres. Jazz, flamenco, rock, Latin, Spanish, world, classical, pop, Middle-Eastern, and Celtic, ...

Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary

Read "Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

More than any other person, Leonardo Pavkovic has made me write some crazy shit.

Pavkovic is the primal force behind the joyously eclectic MoonJune Records, which he established in 2001. “Established" may not be the right word: “I am truly an unusual and rules breaking call-it-record-company with a 'label' identity despite the fact that ...

Jimmie Vaughan: Live at C-Boy's

Read "Live at C-Boy's" reviewed by Doug Collette

Over the course of eight selections and a total running time of approximately thirty-six minutes, the Jimmie Vaughan Trio make Live at C-Boy's short and sweet, and deliciously so. The band enhances the simplicity of the three piece format with takes on tunes as well-known as Bruce Channel's “Hey Baby"and the blues-soul staple “Saint James Infirmary," ...
