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 ...

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." ...

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," ...

Joe Rosenberg: Tomorrow Never Knows

Read "Tomorrow Never Knows" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Nuova fatica discografica per il sopranista bostoniano Joe Rosenberg, stavolta in quintetto secco (nel precedente Rituals and Legends il gruppo si allargava fino alle nove unità), per un'ora scarsa di musica elegante e vagamente cameristica (almeno a tratti), che entra subito nel vivo con “Lalit," dodici minuti e mezzo di deambulare articolato, cui il violoncello di ...

Paul Kelly: Life is Fine...Really!

Read "Paul Kelly: Life is Fine...Really!" reviewed by Doug Collette

Paul Kelly has the soul of a poet, the heart of a rock and roller and the psyche of a renaissance man. How else to explain his last few records leading up to Life is Fine? There's The Merri Soul Sessions, an r&b tribute within which he was more conductor than featured performer. Goin' Your Way ...

Bryan Ferry at the Paramount Theater

Read "Bryan Ferry at the Paramount Theater" reviewed by Geoff Anderson

Bryan Ferry
Paramount Theater
Denver, CO
August 3, 2017

Bryan Ferry creates dreamscapes. Dark, ethereal, eerie, brooding, a little bit spooky, but not too scary. You're floating in dreamland; maybe you're aware that you're dreaming; maybe not. But it's a really good dream and you know you don't want to leave ...
