Bill Frisell | Thomas Morgan: Epistrophy

Read "Epistrophy" reviewed by John Kelman

When ECM Records released Small Town in 2017, beyond capturing the profound intimacy and musical ability to “finish each other's sentences" shared by the first recorded document of guitarist Bill Frisell and bassist Thomas Morgan in a duo setting, one of the biggest walk-aways was the hope that this would not be a one-off. Two years ...

Enzo Pietropaoli, Julian Mazzariello, Alessandro Paternesi: The Princess

Read "The Princess" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

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 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)
