Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers: Rehab Reunion

Read "Rehab Reunion" reviewed by Geno Thackara

A Bruce Hornsby album with no piano sounds sort of like a Chinese dinner without rice. Well, upon further consideration it may not be quite as crazy as it sounds. The man's career is defined by nothing if not restlessness, and he's managed to do something fresh and different almost every time out. The most surprising ...

Boz Scaggs: A Fool to Care

Read "A Fool to Care" reviewed by Doug Collette

Less is more had to rule the sessions for Boz Scaggs' A Fool to Care. The core quartet of accompanists includes the producer drummer Steve Jordan, who's worked with the likes of Neil Young and Keith Richards, and while, like Memphis (429 Records, 2013), this album was recorded in a musical bastion of America-Nashville Tennessee-the album's ...

Los Lobos: Disconnected in New York City

Read "Disconnected in New York City" reviewed by Doug Collette

Recorded within the intimate confines of the Big Apple's City Winery in December 2012, Disconnected in New York City finds Los Lobos' simultaneously recognizing, anticipating and celebrating its fortieth anniversary as a band. Little wonder the performances are so sparkling on the three discs within the 'Deluxe Edition,' potent beyond their somewhat abbreviated duration.

The Rides: Can't Get Enough

Read "Can't Get Enough" reviewed by Doug Collette

Originally the result of a creative spark generated between guitarist/vocalist/composer Stephen Stills and keyboardist/vocalist/composer Barry Goldberg, who already shared some history as collaborators on the famous Super Session album (Columbia, 1968) the dynamic solidified dramatically with the introduction of guitarist/vocalist/composer Kenny Wayne Shepherd into the mix. Yet even with this ostensible surfeit of talent, the triumvirate-like ...

Boz Scaggs: Memphis

Read "Memphis" reviewed by Doug Collette

Boz Scaggs made a household name for himself with the ultra-slick Silk Degrees (Columbia, 1975), but he had already established a solo career for himself in the wake of departing The Steve Miller Band in 1968. Memphis further reaffirms the selective approach the vocalist, guitarist and songwriter has brought to his career in recent years, at ...

Tommy Bolin: The Definitive Teaser Collector’s Edition

Read "The Definitive Teaser Collector’s Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Guitarist Tommy Bolin elevated the role of journeyman to a high art. After leaving his home in Colorado, where he played with Energy and Zephyr, he worked with fusion drummers Billy Cobham and Alphonse Mouzon, joined a post-Joe Walsh James Gang, and went on to Deep Purple when Richie Blackmore left the group. All of this ...

Dr. John and the Lower 911: Tribal

Read "Tribal" reviewed by Mike Perciaccante

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Dr. John made his bones (at least with the national audience) with a spooky, swampy blues / psychedelia / R&B / funk / pop / rock / jazz-influenced musical gumbo that included the originals “Right Place, Wrong Time," “Mardi Gras Day," “I Walk on Guilded Splinters," “Such A Night" ...

Dr. John and The Lower 911: Tribal

Read "Tribal" reviewed by Chris May

With hindsight, keyboards player and vocalist Mac Rebennack's return to his “Dr. John, The Night Tripper" oeuvre might have been foreseen before the recording of Tribal, when in 2006 he once more donned the full-blown voodoo regalia for his appearance at the Bonnaroo Music Festival. But then Katrina came along and Rebennack's attentions became focused on ...

Jackie Greene: Till The Light Comes

Read "Till The Light Comes" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jackie Greene's Till The Light Comes is an exercise in style the likes of which there is no precedent in his discography. The precocious California rocker's certainly made the most of his opportunities, since Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh “discovered" him in 2007, but this collaboration with Tim Bluhm (with whom Greene often performs as a ...
