Read "Buddy Guy and the Damn Right Blues Band Heats Up a Summer Night at the Sandler Center" reviewed by Mark Robbins

When 81 years old Buddy Guy walked from stage left to the the center stage microphone of the Sandler Center the audience was already on it's feet.

Read "Gregg Allman: December 8, 1947 – May 27, 2017" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

“Well, I'll keep on moving. Things are bound to be improving these days. One of these days..."

Gregg Allman recorded Jackson Browne's lament for his 1973 Capricorn release Laid Back. The song clung to him like smoke, the length of his career, surfacing here and there, until, finally he sang the song with its ...

Top Ten Jazz Tracks for Surf Music

Read "Top Ten Jazz Tracks for Surf Music" reviewed by Alan Bryson

The notion of jazz as surf music seems absurd at first blush, but it can work surprisingly well. Some time ago I learned this by happenstance while listening to an album by fusion guitarist Alex Machacek as I watched surf videos on YouTube. It was a true “ah ha" moment. Compared to the original soundtrack, Alex's ...

Read "Marcus King: The Marcus King Band" reviewed by Doug Collette

Praised, mentored and produced by none other than the titular leader of Gov't Mule, Warren Haynes, precocious twenty-year old songwriter/guitarist/vocalist/bandleader Marcus King faces some heady expectations with the release of he and his band's second full-length LP and first for Fantasy Records via the Evil Teen imprimatur.

In a generous two-set performance that lasted til the midnight hour at Nectar's in Burlington, Matt Schofield made a case for himself as one of the finest bluesmen of his generation. Gary Clark Jr. and Derek Trucks may be more versatile, but the ...

Top Ten Guitarists Who Left Us Too Soon

Read "Top Ten Guitarists Who Left Us Too Soon" reviewed by Alan Bryson

Ranking musicians is a hopelessly flawed endeavor. It's about as meaningful as having a list of the top ten best tasting foods. Taste is highly individualized, influenced by mood, familiarity, and the way in which multiple variables interact. One person's escargot is someone else's slice of Chicago style pizza. I just took a break and searched ...

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
The Music Hall Of Williamsburg

On the ground level, there was a tendency to simply watch the flickering images, glimmering out from old school projectors, rattlingly housed within the mixing desk corral. As most of the players in this Montréal collective, particularly ...

Angelo Santelli: Angelo Santelli

Read "Angelo Santelli" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Floridian Angelo Santelli's debut eponymous recording is a richly mixed bag. An accomplished slide guitarist with associations within the Allman Brothers Band family, Santelli might be taken for granted as a jam-band blues knock off. This is before a first listen something else altogether. On nine disparate original compositions, Santelli reveals a much broader and deeper ...
