While the albums discussed span the era from 1972 to 2014 the insights are timeless-probably. After that wide-ranging exploration of jazz and jazz adjacent fun, pop matters explores Talk Talk's Spirit of Eden as well as releases by Frank ...

California Guitar Trio: Komorebi

Read "Komorebi" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Things come somewhat full circle for the California Guitar Trio on their fifteenth album Komorebi.

Petra Haden/Bill Frisell: Petra Haden and Bill Frisell

Read "Petra Haden and Bill Frisell" reviewed by John Kelman

Working with singers is nothing new to the ubiquitous and stylistically impossible-to-pigeonhole guitarist Bill Frisell.
