The Rolling Stones: Blue And Lonesome

Read "Blue And Lonesome" reviewed by Doug Collette

Originally begun as an impromptu respite from the recording of new original material, the Rolling Stones' Blue and Lonesome quickly turned into a rediscovery of the group's blues roots. And along the way toward completing the three days of sessions, the iconic rockers rediscovered themselves as a band with as much purpose and passion.

Nenad Georgievski's Best Releases of 2016

Read "Nenad Georgievski's Best Releases of 2016" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

There is a poem by a Russian poet Velimir Khlebnikov titled “When Horses Die" that I came across to by accident. It goes like “When horses die they breathe when grasses die, they wither, when suns die they go out, and when people die they sing songs." For many musicians, the year 2016 was final and ...

Although it is compels watching more than once to absorb the varied detail within its two-hours plus duration, The Rolling Stones' Latin American tour documentary, Ole Ole Ole!, is worth seeing just for a single, priceless five minute interval ...

The Rolling Stones: Blue And Lonesome

Read "Blue And Lonesome" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

We should be clear of one thing: were it not for the British Invasion, the United States would likely not have been introduced to its own folk music as early as she was. Gospel, blues, jazz, rhythm and blues, soul, country, and rock and roll all, at least partly, depended on breaking into the lucrative lily-white ...

The Rolling Stones: Blue And Lonesome

Read "Blue And Lonesome" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Among those jazz fans who take a nip of rock & roll from time to time, there may be a secret wish that groups like The Rolling Stones would head for their overdue retirement. That the seventy-three year old Sir Michael Philip “Mick" Jagger and his septuagenarian bandmates have nothing left to prove, is long established. ...

Read "Dave's Picks Volume 20: CU Events Center, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO - December 9, 1981" reviewed by Doug Collette

Dave's Pick's Volume 20 marks a milestone in the Grateful Dead's current archive series, its significance not lost on the curator, David Lemieux. Yet rather than indulge in nostalgia in his notes accompanying this set, the man chooses to take the success of the series as further inspiration to carry on, not just with these quarterly ...

The Rolling Stones: Blue and Lonesome

Read "The Rolling Stones: Blue and Lonesome" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

It was the love for blues and R&B music that bonded two teenage music aficionados Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and this music was the building blocks on which they based their work of art--the band The Rolling Stones. 50 years ago when the Rolling Stones' songwriting partnership between these two began gaining its momentum and ...

Garcia Live Volume Seven: Sophie's, Palo Alto, November 8, 1976

Read "Garcia Live Volume Seven: Sophie's, Palo Alto, November 8, 1976" reviewed by Doug Collette

The openness and vulnerability within Jerry Garcia's singing voice is an often-overlooked virtue among all the others for which he's distinguished, including his ever-so-precise (acoustic and electric) guitar playing as well as his songwriting collaborations with lyricist Robert Hunter. Nevertheless, those vocal qualities also resonate in the best of his solo work and Garcia Live Volume ...

Dominic Duval: Follow Your Melody

Read "Dominic Duval: Follow Your Melody" reviewed by Maxim Micheliov

In memory of Dominic Duval: 1945-2016. This article was first published in October 2010.

Bassist Dominic Duval is a mystery to many--even to those interested in free music. Seemingly emerging out of nowhere in the mid-1990s, over the course of 15 years he has built a formidable discography, firmly establishing him as one of ...
