Cameron Mizell: Negative Spaces

Read "Negative Spaces" reviewed by Dave Wayne

A whole bunch of very accomplished guitarists out there have styles can be described cursorily as lying within a triangle that has John Scofield, Pat Metheny, and Bill Frisell at its vertices. There's nothing wrong with this. Scofield, Metheny, and Frisell are amazing, prolific, and highly influential. And even within these confines, there's a lot of ...

I say this because he wrote the music “specifically for this unique group of individuals," using electric guitar with ...

Michael Bates: Northern Spy

Read "Northern Spy" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Did you ever get a bit envious listening to a recording and thinking the band is having way too much fun making music?
