Steve Khan: Public Access / Headline / Crossings

Read "Public Access / Headline / Crossings" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been a great couple of years for Steve Khan fans who are (relatively) new to the guitarist's work, especially his early releases, thanks to UK-based BGO Records. First, his '70s-era trio of fusion-centric LPs on Columbia Records, 1977's Tightrope, 1978's The Blue Man and 1979's Arrows, were remastered and reissued in a 2015 two-CD set, ...

Rolling Stones: On Air

Read "On Air" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Rolling Stones have a well-established history of archive releases, collectively titled 'From the Vault,' with which the band has done yeoman's work to document the later years of their history. On Air is not one of those titles, but in its Deluxe Edition, nevertheless constitutes an extensive examination of the original quintet's meticulous and spirited ...

The Rolling Stones: Blue And Lonesome

Read "Blue And Lonesome" reviewed by Doug Collette

Originally begun as an impromptu respite from the recording of new original material, the Rolling Stones' Blue and Lonesome quickly turned into a rediscovery of the group's blues roots. And along the way toward completing the three days of sessions, the iconic rockers rediscovered themselves as a band with as much purpose and passion.

Five Classic ECM Titles in High Res

Read "Five Classic ECM Titles in High Res" reviewed by John Kelman

If ever there were a label that deserved to have its catalog released in a high resolution format, it's Munich's ECM Records. Since its inception in 1969, the multiple award-winning record label headed by producer Manfred Eicher has truly redefined how, initially, jazz and improvised music recordings could--and, at least for some, perhaps should--sound. Attention to ...

Top Ten Musicians Who Embody Cool

Read "Top Ten Musicians Who Embody Cool" reviewed by Alan Bryson

America has produced some very cool things: jazz, rock, blues, country, hot rods, Hammond organs, and electric guitars. Another one of the coolest things is the language itself, brewed in the melting pot that is America. Like jazz, blues, and rock, American English itself can't be imagined without the influence of African Americans. “Hep," “hip," “funky," ...

Rolling Stones: Sweet Summer Sun & Havana Moon DVD/CD

Read "Rolling Stones: Sweet Summer Sun & Havana Moon DVD/CD" reviewed by Doug Collette

It might be fair to say that any concert appearance by a band with fifty years plus history is an occasion in itself and doubly so (or more) to offer that observation about the Rolling Stones. Who would've guessed in 1963, 1973 or 1983 that the group would not only still be together in 2016, but ...

Buddy Guy: Can't Quit The Blues

Read "Buddy Guy: Can't Quit The Blues" reviewed by Doug Collette

The absolutely splendid Buddy Guy box set Can't Quit the Blues is worth (re)visiting on a number of fronts, the most immediate of which is that this icon of the blues has once again elevated his contemporary profile opening for Jeff Beck on tour during the summer of 2016 . But El Becko is only one ...

Big Head Todd and the Monsters: Black Beehive

Read "Black Beehive" reviewed by Doug Collette

Big Head Todd & The Monsters have maintained a solid and occasionally high profile since their formation in 1986. Regular studio and road work has produced a fairly extensive discography of albums and DVD's as well as authorized concert recordings, including their previous project under the pseudonym Big Head Blues Club, 100 Years of Robert Johnson, ...
