Blackberry Smoke: Find A Light

Read "Find A Light" reviewed by Doug Collette

Since that flash-point in the Fifties by which blues and country musics were fused into rock and roll, this hybrid has evolved via a seemingly endless series of permutations, the most derivative of which are an amorphous amalgamation of influences. In contrast, the most memorable instances--or at least the ones with the most potential for extended ...

The Wood Brothers at Higher Ground

Read "The Wood Brothers at Higher Ground" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Wood Brothers Higher Ground Ballroom South Burlington, Vermont February 6, 2017 In the decade plus they've played together, the Wood Brothers have made a habit of coming to Vermont virtually every year and their near-sell-out appearance in the ballroom of Higher Ground was almost exactly twelve months since their last ...

The Wood Brothers: The Muse

Read "The Muse" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Muse represents a quantum leap for the Wood Brothers as they fully integrate multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Jano Rix into the band, a process nurtured with not inconsiderable expertise by producer Buddy Miller. At the same time, the album suggests avenues of exploration for the threesome as they continue their evolution. Rix distinguishes himself ...

The Wood BrothersLive Volume Two: Nail & ToothSouthern Ground2012While the Wood Brothers presented its live album, Sky High (Southern Ground, 2012), as a document of how its music has evolved since it resumed its partnership in 2004, it really didn't depict the progression as clearly as its successor ...

Read "Doug Collette's Best Releases of 2011" reviewed by Doug Collette

In no particular order, but all artists display unusually high levels of imagination and creative courage here, rendering each album worth playing for years to come. Brad Mehldau Live in Marciac (Nonesuch) Pat Metheny

The Wood Brothers: Smoke Ring Halo

Read "Smoke Ring Halo" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Wood Brothers began as a quirky duo with musical charm far out of proportion to its numbers. On Smoke Ring Halo the brothers continue as a trio (with plenty of guests),extending their collective virtues further still. The Woods' wry sense of humor comes through as clearly on “Mary Anna" as drummer Tyler Greenwell's ...

The Wood Brothers: The Wood Brothers: Up Above My Head

Read "The Wood Brothers: Up Above My Head" reviewed by Doug Collette

Highlights of The Wood Brothers' live performances invariably include ingenious renditions of choice covers in addition to their own well-wrought originals. So it stands to reason they'd find it perfectly natural to put together this mini-album of outside material by the likes of Beck and Allen Toussaint, among others. Returning to the strictly two-piece ...

The Wood Brothers: Loaded

Read "Loaded" reviewed by Doug Collette

Like most of Loaded, The Wood Brothers' second album begins and ends with its respective companion pieces, “Lovin' Arms" and “Still Close," moving at a decidedly unhurried pace. The understatement at the heart of their approach distinguishes itself precisely because the sound is so quietly inviting. Bassist Chris and guitarist Oliver Wood ...

Read "The Wood Brothers at Higher Ground: Amble On" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Wood Brothers Higher Ground Showcase Lounge South Burlington, VT April 30th 2006 The Wood Brothers' CD, Ways Not to Lose, is the definition of understatment, so it may be overstatement to call it one of the best albums so far this year. Nevertheless, when you see these siblings ...
