Heavy Music - The Complete Cameo Recordings 1966-1967

Read "Heavy Music - The Complete Cameo Recordings 1966-1967" reviewed by Doug Collette

Bob Seger has been stubbornly reticent about the distiribution of his catalog in the wake of the CD and the rise of streaming services, so the issue of his early output on Heavy Music: The Complete Cameo Recordings 1966-1967 is a sign of astute archiving. Ten tracks on a single disc isn't usually a treasure trove, ...

Arturo Stàlteri: Low & Loud

Read "Low & Loud" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Nella trafficata discografia di Arturo Stàlteri (Roma, 1959), figura multiforme la cui indole e inclinazione classica rappresenta comunque una costante benché i suoi primi passi, risalenti addirittura al 1974 (a quindici anni!), lo colgano nel gruppo progressive Pierrot Lunaire (due album, in quello stesso 1974 e nel '77), quest'ultimo lavoro rinforza l'immagine che, come pianista (è ...

Groovemeisters: Dennis Coffey and Barry Goldberg

Read "Groovemeisters: Dennis Coffey and Barry Goldberg" reviewed by Doug Collette

Any musiclover worth his or her salt will testify to the fact that some of the best instrumentalists are the greatest unsung heroes. Playing during any given era of rock and roll, blues, jazz or funk, in any cross-fertilization thereof, session players, sidemen and collaborators of comparatively low profiles can be part and parcel of the ...

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 ...

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, ...

Meet Martin McFie

Read "Meet Martin McFie" reviewed by Tessa Souter and Andrea Wolper

Super Fan Martin McFie is so into live music he doesn't even have a record collection. These days, McFie, British by birth, calls both South Carolina and Nice, France, home. The frequent-traveling “jazz detective" has made it his business to seek out jazz of all kinds in some of the most unlikely places, especially when he's ...

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 ...

Steve Khan: Public Access / Headline / Crossings

Read "Public Access / Headline / Crossings" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been a great couple of years for Steve Khan fans who are (relatively) new to the guitarist's work, especially his early releases, thanks to UK-based BGO Records. First, his '70s-era trio of fusion-centric LPs on Columbia Records, 1977's Tightrope, 1978's The Blue Man and 1979's Arrows, were remastered and reissued in a 2015 two-CD set, ...

Bill Frisell: Music IS

Read "Music IS" reviewed by John Kelman

The tradition of solo jazz guitar recordings is a long one, with guitarists like Johnny Smith, Al Viola, George Van Eps, Lenny Breau and Joe Pass demonstrating just how far a mere six (in some cases, seven) strings could be taken on their own as far back as the 1950s. Subsequent guitar soloists like John Abercrombie ...

Steve Barton: Tall Tales And Alibis

Read "Tall Tales And Alibis" reviewed by Doug Collette

Like Bob Dylan's Triplicate (Columbia, 2017), Steve Barton's Tall Tales And Alibis recounts a rite of passage in three parts. But even though the once and future member of Translator only assigns specific sub-titles once (in the recording credits), his journey from darkness to light is as explicit as that of the Nobel Laureate's, perhaps even ...
