Claude Nobs: We All Came Out To Montreux...

Read "Claude Nobs: We All Came Out To Montreux..." reviewed by Ian Patterson

Montreux Jazz Festival is fifty. It's a significant milestone and cause for celebration. No doubt there will be an added festive element to this year's edition of the festival, founded by Claude Nobs--along with pianist Géo Voumard and writer René Langel--in 1967. Yet for many, the celebrations will be tinged with sadness due to the absence ...

Bray Jazz Festival 2015
Various Venues
Bray, Ireland
May 1-3, 2015

Sunshine and squall. The sun and the clouds chased each other's tails throughout the May Bank Holiday weekend of the Bray Jazz Festival. In a way the weather mirrored the music--a pleasingly eclectic, bracing mixture--and the fortunes of the ...

Ziga Koritnik and The Eye

Read "Ziga Koritnik and The Eye" reviewed by John Kelman

In a time when cameras are more pervasive and invasive than they've ever been--with iPhones, iPads, Androids and low-price point-and-shoot devices lending the impression that everyone is a photographer--photo artists like Žiga Koritnik, paradoxically, stand out more than ever. Sure, anyone can take a picture, but to get to the heart of a subject and truly ...

C. Michael Bailey's Best Recordings of 2014

Read "C. Michael Bailey's Best Recordings of 2014" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

This year turned out to be a watershed of jazz and beyond vocals, instrumental jazz and important reissues. It was a year of music that further opened my eyes and ears to music I had not previously valued or considered. How short-sighted of me.

Rory Gallagher: Irish Tour '74 Deluxe Edition

Read "Rory Gallagher: Irish Tour '74 Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Of all the entries in the Rory Gallagher discography-and it's lengthy despite his premature passing in 1995 at the age of forty-seven-none deserve the expanded treatment more than Irish Tour '74, which is not doubt why it was originally documented on film as it happened by Tony Palmer. Not only did the title set the standard ...

Rory Gallagher: Irish Tour '74

Read "Irish Tour '74" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini

Sono passati oltre quarant'anni dal tour irlandese del gruppo di Rory Gallagher che toccò Belfast, Dublino e Cork fra fine dicembre del 1973 e l'inizio del nuovo anno. La Sony Music fa un bellissimo regalo ai tanti fan del focoso chitarrista irlandese e pubblica un cofanetto quadrato (è un insolito formato di 24x24 centimetri) che contiene ...

Rory Gallagher - Irish Tour ’74, the 40th Anniversary Deluxe Box Set

Read "Rory Gallagher - Irish Tour ’74, the 40th Anniversary Deluxe Box Set" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

In the end, music is a personal soundtrack to one's life. It is tied to a specific time and place, circumstances and memories that are so tightly integrated in one's experience that having memory with no music cannot even be imagined, much less considered. In the summer of 1974, I went from Little Rock to Chicago ...
