I've been around as a musician long enough to understand when a promoter or booker ghosts me. “Yeah, sure, send me an email," they say in that sincere way that sounds like someone saying, “Of course I love you" just to shut you up. It comes with the territory, and a musician has to be Zen ...

Harvie S / Sheryl Bailey: Plucky Strum

Read "Plucky Strum" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Two musicians, two acoustic string instruments, and ten original works recorded live in the studio with no overdubs, edits, or fixes of any sort. That's Plucky Strum in a nutshell, but that's also unfairly reductive in its explanation of the project. For when the two musicians under discussion are as special and seasoned as bassist Harvie ...

Read "Clean Numbers & Dirty Words" reviewed by Paul Naser

The electric guitar has a history of players with fierce energy, and L.A. based guitarist Matthew Yeakley fits right into this tradition.

The Sheryl Bailey 4: For All Those Living

Read "For All Those Living" reviewed by Edward Blanco

Wes Montgomery may be gone, but the great jazz guitarist's crisp, rich-toned sound lives on in Sheryl Bailey, whose style is so reminiscent of the icon, but whose technique has also been compared to that of Pat Martino. It is quite clear that Bailey is a gifted guitarist as well as a veteran musician, with several ...

Sheryl Bailey 4: For All Those Living

Read "For All Those Living" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

While guitarist Sheryl Bailey's A New Promise was a tribute to another tremendously talented female guitarist--the late Emily Remler--For All Those Living touches on a wide variety of figures, both here and gone. Bailey's music pays direct tribute to fellow guitarists, like Jack Wilkins ("Wilkinsburg"), Masa Sasaki ("Masa's Bag") and the late Jimmy Wyble, but she ...

Today's exponents, from Pat Metheny to Fred Frith, have stretched its boundaries, albeit from dramatically different perspectives of the musical spectrum. Sandro Albert fits somewhere in the dynamic pantheon of guitarists, ...
