John Mayall: Nobody Told Me

Read "Nobody Told Me" reviewed by Doug Collette

Over the course of some fifty-plus years, the bands of John Mayall have served as a proving ground for some estimable guitarists. Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor and Peter Green are just the most famous axemen who've aided and abetted “The Godfather of British Blues." Yet, in all that extended time, he has never before had a ...

Up From The Roots: Cary Morin, Colin James, Joanne Shaw Taylor & Chris Youlden

Read "Up From The Roots: Cary Morin, Colin James, Joanne Shaw Taylor & Chris Youlden" reviewed by Doug Collette

Blues musicians invariably cover traditional genre material because it connects them with the wellspring of emotion at the heart of this music and illustrates the major influences on their personal style. Sometimes these gestures are more obvious than others, but as are those of Cary Morin's on his latest album, they can bespeak bold courage as ...

Walter Trout: Thriving With The Blues

Read "Walter Trout: Thriving With The Blues" reviewed by Jim Worsley

I considered using the word surviving, instead of thriving, in the title. However, as you will see, Walter Trout has done much more than “just survive" his real life blues. Trout speaks candidly about his struggles and near fatal experience with liver disease and the ensuing transplant. He also spoke with humor, vigor, and a renewed ...

Beth Hart Band
Historic Statehouse

It is interesting how sometimes, when performed properly, the most tragic, heartbroken blues can be thoroughly inspiring. Beth Hart verified the truth in that improbable contradiction many times during a superb show.

Marbin: Goat Man & The House of the Dead

Read "Goat Man & The House of the Dead" reviewed by Dave Wayne

It's truly been fun to watch Marbin grow and develop over the past few years. Their eponymous, self- released debut album, from way back in 2009, was a duet affair with the two principals--saxophonist Danny Markovitch and guitarist Dani Rabin--plying their talents on a clutch of brief and very intricate instrumentals. Sounding at times like an ...

Marbin: Aggressive Hippies

Read "Aggressive Hippies" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Far from being just another jazz-rock fusion band, Marbin occupies their own stylistic space. More an instrumental rock band than a jazz fusion band, Marbin's music seems to come from the guitar hero world of Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Joe Bonamassa. But there's a good deal of other stuff going on in their music. Steeped ...

The blues has a youthful future, across both sides of the Atlantic. Singer and guitarist Laurence Jones is the latest upstart to stir the UK scene, possessing a very 1960s sensibility, as if he's a throwback to the scene ...
