Gary Clark, Jr.: Live North America 2016

Read "Live North America 2016" reviewed by Doug Collette

At first glance and upon initial listen, Gary Clark Jr.'s Live North America 2016 suggests a holding pattern on his rapidly-developing career. More careful perusal, however, reveals the man's second concert release, out in fairly quick succession to both Live (Warner Bros., 2014) and his last studio album, The Story of Sunny Boy Slim (Warner Bros., ...

Red Hot Chili Peppers: The Getaway

Read "The Getaway" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

All the surface evidence on The Getaway suggests that the band Red Hot Chili Peppers, for most part, is steering its music towards unfamiliar territory. This change of sound first began on I'm With You, (Warner Bros. 2011) the first recording the band did without one of its key members, guitarist John Frusciante who left to ...

Little Feat: Dixie Chicken

Read "Dixie Chicken" reviewed by Sacha O'Grady

A lot has been written about Dixie Chicken over the last few decades, so there's perhaps not all that much more this listener can add to the discussion. Yes, it has another great album cover by the late Neon Parks, a painter whose name has become synonymous with the band itself. And yes, the LP found ...

Grateful Dead: Europe ‘72

Read "Europe ‘72" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

When asked the best introduction to the Grateful Dead for the uninitiated, I recommend Europe '72. That opinion has not changed in the intervening 40 years. This tour is one storied in the history of the band. It was the group's great bluesman, Ron “Pigpen" McKernan's last tour before he died of drink at the age ...

Gary Clark, Jr.: Live

Read "Live" reviewed by Doug Collette

Anyone who's had the privilege to see Gary Clark Jr. in concert knows that his previous recordings, on his own Hotwired Records as well as the two major label titles, are but sketches of how he's progressively forging influences of rock, blues and r&b into a stirring style of his own. Live preserves for posterity a ...

Little Feat Rad Gumbo: The Complete Warner Bros. Years 1971 to 1990

Read "Little Feat Rad Gumbo: The Complete Warner Bros. Years 1971 to 1990" reviewed by Carlo Wolff

The first time you hear the jny: Los Angeles band Little Feat, you might think it springs from the same southern loam as the Allman Brothers Band or Lynyrd Skynyrd. Listen a little deeper and you'll hear something more off-kilter and easily as distinctive, whether it's the complicated rhythm supplied by Richie Hayward, Kenny Gradney, Sam ...

Richard Galliano: Tangaria

Read "Tangaria" reviewed by Chris May

A little accordion can go a long way. Its sound is a knife edge away from a dolorous monotone, and stubbornly resists modulation. It is no accident that Argentinian tango, the style indelibly associated with the instrument, typically deals with loss and bad luck. Few accordionists are able to cast off this baggage, but Richard Galliano ...

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Live Anthology

Read "Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The Live Anthology" reviewed by Doug Collette

Tom Petty obviously reveres his band The Heartbreakers with the feeling being mutual, as the group not only welcomes the leader back from his solo projects with Jeff Lynne and Rick Rubin, but also deigns to skillfully reinterpret the most popular material from those projects.

Improvisation takes on many forms in the hands of musicians this ...

Ojos de Brujo: Aocana

Read "Aocana" reviewed by Chris May

While for most people outside Spain, life with Ojos de Brujo began in 2004 with baritone (World Village), or later with Techari (Six Degrees, 2006), the Barcelona-based, Catalan and Gypsy collective has been together since the late 1990s, and released its first album, Vengue (Edel), in 1999. In all this time, the band has stayed true ...
