Hugh Masekela: Still Grazing: The Musical Journey of Hugh Masekela

Read "Still Grazing: The Musical Journey of Hugh Masekela" reviewed by Eric J. Iannelli

Still Grazing is a retrospective. Like all retrospectives that lack any kind of bonus material (even the token unreleased alternate take or live recording), it raises the question of just whom it is for. Fans of the South African trumpeter/flugelhorn player/vocalist/songwriter will already have most or all of these eleven songs, compiled from six albums released ...

Paco de Lucia: Cositas Buenas

Read "Cositas Buenas" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Most veteran jazz listeners probably came across Paco de Lucia during his rip-roaring '80s adventures alongside fellow guitarists John McLaughlin and Al DiMeola. In that particularly heated setting, each player aimed for pure intensity--and amazingly enough, nobody fell by the wayside.

Diehard flamenco fans probably found Paco de Lucia elsewhere. His first record, 1961's ...

Paco de Luc: Cositas Buenas

Read "Cositas Buenas" reviewed by Eric J. Iannelli

When a musician as rare and as skilled as Paco de Lucía falls silent for over five years, you might guess that he’s either suffering a nervous breakdown in relative privacy, or he’s busy composing some of the best music of his career (though some artists have managed to do both at once). Cositas Buenas would ...

Stanton Moore: Flyin' The Koop

Read "Flyin' The Koop" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Drummer, Stanton Moore extends the lineage of the great New Orleans reared drummers along with a deeply personalized and often rip-roaring viewpoint on his latest solo effort. A founding member of the so-called, “steamroller funk" outfit known as Galactic, the drummer and his notable musical associates endow the listener with a downright riotous series of grooves ...

Action Figure Party: Action Figure Party

Read "Action Figure Party" reviewed by Mike Robinson

I thought Art Good was nuts. There, on the Sunday morning lineup of the 2001 JazzTrax Catalina Island Festival was this band, “Action Figure Party."

“Action Figure Party?!"

The band consists of twentysomething musicians from bands like “Garbage," “Buck Cherry," “Incubus," and “Beck." One of the musicians' names is “Flea." Another goes by “Yogi," and a ...

Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown: Back to Bogalusa

Read "Back to Bogalusa" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Why Clarence “Gatemouth" Brown is a National Treasure.

Louisiana born, Texas bred Clarence “Gatemouth" Brown is a trans-genre, journeyman, multi-instrumentalist Renaissance man. Equally at home with Texas Blues, Cajun Zydeco, Western Swing, Rhythm and Blues, Country and Western, and Jazz, Brown spread his influence around generously. In this respect, one could see him as a rural ...

Lucky Peterson: Double Dealin'

Read "Double Dealin'" reviewed by Al Rearick

For those who think that the blues has used up all its ideas in overly-cliched songs about somebody’s woman doin’ him wrong, played over the usual ba-DA-da-Da-da beat, a new record has appeared on the horizon brimming with new twists on grand old ideas.

That record is Lucky Peterson's Double Dealin’.

What makes a record truly ...

Joe Louis Walker: Silvertone Blues

Read "Silvertone Blues" reviewed by Ed Kopp

Tradition-minded newcomers like Alvin Youngblood Hart, Keb’ Mo’ and Corey Harris have spurred an acoustic-blues renaissance over the past few years. Now one of the most respected electric bluesmen on the scene, Joe Louis Walker, has opted to pull the plug on his guit.

Named for the 1930s acoustic guitar Walker plays on over half ...

Mighty Mo Rodgers: Blues Is My Wailin' Wall

Read "Blues Is My Wailin' Wall" reviewed by Ed Kopp

Mighty Mo Rodgers has a rough but limber singing voice that commands attention. His metaphorical lyrics reveal a strong passion for history and social issues. Unfortunately, the instrumentation on this major-label debut isn't nearly as intriguing as the vocals.

Rodgers is a singer-keyboardist who made his mark in the '60s playing with Brenton Wood, T-Bone ...

Lucky Peterson: Lucky Peterson

Read "Lucky Peterson" reviewed by Ed Kopp

Son of Buffalo blues musician and club owner James Peterson, 34-year old Lucky Peterson recorded his first album at age 5 -- and Willie Dixon produced it. Lucky is aptly named, but the thing that makes him lucky is not his birthright or his early start -- it's his talent. Peterson plays nasty wah-wah-tinged guitar, soulful ...
