Two masters of the jazz guitar in a wonderful give-and-take session, listening to each other as they play and playing as one. The emotion is contagious, the ...

Eliane Elias: Dance of Time

Read "Dance of Time" reviewed by Jeff Winbush

Two years ago, Eliane Elias released Made In Brazil (Concord, 2015) and all it did was win the 2016 Grammy for Best Latin Album. It's a great album and with Dance of Time, Elias hasn't repeated a successful formula; she's perfected it. This is an opulent recording, rich in its authenticity and lavish in its glorious ...

Chick Corea: The Musician

Read "Chick Corea: The Musician" reviewed by John Kelman

As people age, it's not uncommon to commemorate birthday milestones--specifically, those marking the passing of decades--with special celebrations, ranging from parties to vacations. In most cases, however, these festivities are private events, restricted to family and friends.

Not Chick Corea.

When this renowned pianist/keyboardist, composer, bandleader and guest participant in countless projects ...

Chick Corea: The Musician

Read "The Musician" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Ashleigh Smith: Sunkissed

Read "Sunkissed" reviewed by Jeff Winbush

Summer 2016 was hot, sticky and not a lot of fun. Many big name Hollywood blockbusters tanked. The presidential election has been a long slog. Television ratings for the Summer Olympics were off and every time you turned on the TV there were plenty of reasons to turn it back off.

Then along came ...

Warren Haynes: Ashes & Dust Deluxe Edition & Bonus CD

Read "Warren Haynes: Ashes & Dust Deluxe Edition & Bonus CD" reviewed by Doug Collette

It's a left-handed compliment of no small proprtion to state guitarist/composers Warren Haynes' Ashes & Dust (Concord Records, 2015) album only scratches the surface of his recent solo endeavors in the studio and on the stage. Certainly, the erstwhile Allman Brother and titular leader of Gov't Mule has done more than his share of musical exploration ...

Billy Gibbons and the BFGs: Perfectamundo

Read "Perfectamundo" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

We are one hell of a long way from 1971 and ZZ Top's First Album (London). That music was as purely organic chewing tobacco and loose as the dust on the bank of the Rio Grande. Well, all that ended in 1976 with Tejas (London), which was the beginning of the band's ascendency to pop stardom ...

Shawn Colvin: Uncovered

Read "Uncovered" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

There are two trends occurring in popular music that are both equally welcome to “those of a certain age." These are classic rock titans or their later devotees, performing their landmark albums, from beginning to end, in concert. The Rolling Stones performing Sticky Fingers (Rolling Stones, 1971) in its entirety at Los Angeles' Fonda Theater, May ...

Boney James: Futuresoul

Read "Futuresoul" reviewed by Jeff Winbush

At this point, with 15 albums under his belt, it's been established what Boney James does and does not do well. If you are in search of an adventurous artist who is constantly pushing the envelope and challenging himself and the listener by daring to deviate from expectation, keep looking: this is not the saxophonist you ...

Eliane Elias: Made In Brazil

Read "Made In Brazil" reviewed by Jeff Winbush

If you've never been to Brazil, consider Eliane Elias as a goodwill ambassador with Made In Brazil. It is a triumphant return for the pianist/vocalist to her native land to record her first album there since relocating to the United States in 1981.

There is a delicacy to how Elias chooses and approaches the ...
