Karl Denson's Tiny Universe: Gnomes and Badgers

Read "Gnomes and Badgers" reviewed by Doug Collette

Karl Denson's Tiny Universe swings hard and grooves deeply for the better part of Gnomes and Badgers. In fact, if the tracks with vocals like “What If You Knew" on the first half of the record were sequenced in a different order, those cuts might well be nothing more than mere distraction from the real attraction(s) ...

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." ...

The Rolling Stones: Blue And Lonesome

Read "Blue And Lonesome" reviewed by Doug Collette

Originally begun as an impromptu respite from the recording of new original material, the Rolling Stones' Blue and Lonesome quickly turned into a rediscovery of the group's blues roots.

By all accounts, Warren Haynes is known to be an upbeat forward-thinking individual. In this recent conversation however, he is borderline ebullient. And why not? Last October he aided immeasurably in bringing the forty-five year career of the Allman Brothers Band to a spectacular close. By the time of that historic appearance at New York's Beacon ...

The Allman Brothers Band at Nassau Coliseum

Read "The Allman Brothers Band at Nassau Coliseum" reviewed by Doug Collette

With a new independent licensing agreement now in place, and the 40th anniversary package(s) of Brothers and Sisters (Capricorn, 1973) giving that title its proper due, the Allman Brothers Band may be fundamentally rethinking its approach to its recorded archive. With revelatory recordings of the original lineup limited due in large measure to a relatively finite ...

Bruce Kaphan Quartet: Bruce Kaphan Quartet

Read "Bruce Kaphan Quartet" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

The pedal steel guitar is so closely associated with American country and western music that its image can scarcely escape that infinite gravity of categorization. Even when it has wobbled its way into jazz, the instrument has always operated beneath the label of “Western Swing" or “Alternative Country." Several notable players have distinguished themselves in the ...
