Charles Lloyd: The Winds Of Grace

Read "Charles Lloyd: The Winds Of Grace" reviewed by Ian Patterson

At seventy nine years young Charles Lloyd is showing no signs of slowing down. The summer months see the Memphis saxophonist/flautist on the North American and European festival circuits with his quartet of Gerald Clayton, Reuben Rogers and Eric Harland, followed by dates with The Marvels, Lloyd's most recent group, featuring Bill Frisell, Greg Leisz, Rogers ...

The Doors' 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "The Doors' 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

In his usual evenhanded, deceptively passionate prose for The Doors' 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, David Fricke neatly encapsulates the combined personal and universal significance of the record. Released in January of 1967, the quartet's debut album, produced by Paul Rothchild, predates other monumental titles of the year--the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper (Parlophone), Jefferson Airplane's Surrealistic Pillow (RCA, ...

Blues Deluxe: Colin James, Matthew Curry and Johnny Nicholas

Read "Blues Deluxe: Colin James, Matthew Curry and Johnny Nicholas" reviewed by Doug Collette

The cultural fragmentation of the last two decades or so has resulted in such a multiplicity of niche categories that the blues community only benefits by its long-term standing of loyalty to the genre. Rather than suffer foolish players gladly or thoughtlessly reward the mediocre results of their efforts, these devoted and inveterate music-lovers deeply relish ...

David Honeyboy Edwards: I'm Gonna Tell You Somethin' That I Know

Read "I'm Gonna Tell You Somethin' That I Know" reviewed by James Nadal

When David Honeyboy Edwards passed in 2011, with him went one of the last living links to the history of the blues. Born in Mississippi in 1915, he started out as a wandering guitarist, playing acoustic Delta Blues as passed down by the men who invented the genre. First recorded down south in 1942, he eventually ...

Noah Preminger: Some Other Time

Read "Some Other Time" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

After several releases, tenor saxophonist Noah Preminger's uniqueness has become more evident. In large part, this curve is due to Preminger's own patient development of a creative process; part is an individual style but much of the appeal is in how he creates around the broader dynamics of his various groups. What has been consistent, from ...
