Peter Davenport: Bolide

Read "Bolide" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Peter Davenport's Bolide is the sort of album that often flies completely under the radar. It's what record collectors call a private issue; completely self-produced, self-distributed and available on a very small scale; generally only through the artist. Nevertheless, Bolide is a worthwhile listening experience. While not a familiar name to me prior to hearing this ...

The Brecker Brothers: The Brecker Bros. - The Complete Arista Albums Collection

Read "The Brecker Brothers: The Brecker Bros. - The Complete Arista Albums Collection" reviewed by John Kelman

When fusion first emerged in the late 1960s/early '70s with artists like trumpeter Miles Davis, pianist Chick Corea and guitarist John McLaughlin, the emphasis was on guitar and keyboard heavy lineups like Return to Forever and Mahavishnu Orchestra, with an equally strong predilection for the intensity and volume of rock and a kind of thundering funk ...
