Montréal, Canada

Bobby Broom: Soul Fingers

Read "Soul Fingers" reviewed by Jim Trageser

A thematic sequel to his 2007 release, Song and Dance, Bobby Broom's Soul Fingers is a deep-pile take on late 1960s--early 1970s pop, with Broom in his best Wes Montgomery vein, giving new soul-jazz life to one-time chart hits.

And yet, it's also a break from Song and Dance because Broom has changed his ...

The Beatles: The Beatles 50th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition

Read "The Beatles 50th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

In keeping with its source, The White Album (Apple, 1968), as a virtual primer of contemporary musical style ranging from the Beach Boys ("Back in the USSR") to Stockhausen ("Revolution #9"), The Beatles 50th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition is a weighty proposition indeed. In fact, it's alternately daunting and imposing in mere physical form: housed in ...

John Lennon's Imagine: The Ultimate Collection & Imagine/Gimme Some Truth Films

Read "John Lennon's Imagine: The Ultimate Collection & Imagine/Gimme Some Truth Films" reviewed by John Kelman

While hardly a new idea, with so many classic artists and recordings now hitting forty and fifty-year milestones, there's been a proliferation of deluxe and super deluxe editions of major albums from the '60s and '70s in recent years. While some are better (and better value for money) than others, the market for surround sound mixes ...

Big in Japan: A History of Jazz in the Land of the Rising Sun, Part 1

Read "Big in Japan: A History of Jazz in the Land of the Rising Sun, Part 1" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Part 1 | Part 2

The music market in Japan--second only to the U.S. in terms of revenue--generates more than two-billion dollars in sales annually. Enthusiasts and collectors of jazz recordings had long ago discovered that Japan's robust music scene, and the now virtual accessibility to products have made the country a go-to resource for ...

Son Volt: Okemah And The Melody Of Riot - Deluxe Edition

Read "Okemah And The Melody Of Riot - Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jay Farrar has hardly shown himself to be a self-promoter during the course of his career. Dating back to the alternative country band Uncle Tupelo through his ongoing solo efforts and intermittently leading the similarly-styled Son Volt, this taciturn man has preferred to make his statements almost solely through his music. An exception to his low ...

Tom Petty: An American Treasure

Read "An American Treasure" reviewed by Doug Collette

In a direct, no nonsense gesture the subject of this anthology would no doubt appreciate, the earliest inclusions on the 4-CD anthology An American Treasure illustrate how Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers forged their own style of songwriting and playing from Bob Dylan, the Byrds and the Rolling Stones. “Surrender," “Listen To Her Heart," and" You're ...

Rolling Stones: From The Vault: No Security, San Jose '99 (2CD + SD Blu Ray)

Read "From The Vault: No Security, San Jose '99 (2CD + SD Blu Ray)" reviewed by John Kelman

It's hard to believe that 56 years after the band formed, and 55 years after it released its first single, a cover of Chuck Berry's “Come On" that reached an admirable first-time position of #21 in the UK charts, the Rolling Stones continue their strangle hold on the moniker “The World's Greatest Rock 'n Roll Band." ...

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 ...
