FAT: #awesome

Read "#awesome" reviewed by John Kelman

While the appropriately titled #awesome represents Alex Machacek's third album in six years with his (similarly witty and self-effacingly monikered) FAT (Fabulous Austrian Trio), this trifecta of virtuosic Austrian musicians goes much further back. Both bassist Raphael Preuschl and drummer Herbert Pirker appeared on roughly half of the expat-Austrian/Los Angeles-based guitarist's acclaimed 2006 Abstract Logix debut, ...

Allan Holdsworth: The Man Who Changed Guitar Forever!

Read "Allan Holdsworth: The Man Who Changed Guitar Forever!" reviewed by John Kelman

In a time when album sales are a challenge being mitigated, at least to some extent, by the release of deluxe editions and box sets, it's still more necessary than ever to grab potential listeners with imagery and words; the title of a box set can have, especially for those less than intimately familiar with the ...

U.K.: Ultimate Collectors' Edition

Read "U.K.: Ultimate Collectors' Edition" reviewed by John Kelman

Well, there's certainly been a wait for this one, but for fans of what may be the last high profile progressive rock group to emerge in the 1970s, U.K.'s Ultimate Collectors' Edition proves well worth it. What began as an already sizeable 16-disc box for a group that, during its relatively brief tenure, released just two ...

Mark Isham
Blue Sun
Columbia Records
1995

Better-known, perhaps, for his work in the film arena as scorer for movies including 1986's The Hitcher, the 1992 reboot of Of Mice and Men and 1998's Blade, Mark Isham has, nevertheless, demonstrated his instrumental prowess as a trumpeter on albums including pianist Art Lande's Rubisa Patrol ...

Frank Zappa, due decenni dopo

Read "Frank Zappa, due decenni dopo" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Il 4 dicembre 2013 cadeva la ricorrenza del secondo decennale dalla scomparsa di Frank Zappa. Sono passati venti anni da quando una delle maggiori personalità musicali del XX secolo è venuta a mancare, stroncato da un male incurabile, lasciando un vuoto incolmabile nel mondo dell'arte contemporanea. Anche se la sua musica ha avuto un'enorme influenza su ...

The Road to Red

Read "The Road to Red" reviewed by John Kelman

Another massive King Crimson box, hot on the heels of the 15-disc, 40th Anniversary Series Larks' Tongues in Aspic: The Complete Recordings (DGM Live, 2012), which brought new meaning to the word heavy by collecting every known note--ranging from low to hi-fi--played by the then newly forged, five-piece edition of a group that, in addition to ...

Curved Air: Live Atmosphere

Read "Live Atmosphere" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Upon its inception in 1970, Curved Air became a prominent exponent of British progressive rock, fronted by vocalist Sonja Kristina. Superb musicianship was a forté, spawning notables such as keyboardist Francis Monkman, keyboardist/violinist Eddie Jobson and violinist Darryl Way. Fast-forward several decades and Kristina and original band drummer Florian Pilkington-Miksa reorganize the unit with a new ...

FAT: FAT

Read "FAT" reviewed by John Kelman

Around for more than a decade, Alex Machacek's first record as a leader (renamed, with characteristically bone-dry wit, as Mc Hacek) was Featuring Ourselves (Next Generation, 1999), but it was when the Austrian-born/California-resident guitarist moved to Abstract Logix that more significant attention came, first with his stunning, year-besting [sic] (2006). Three more records followed, culminating in ...
