Heavy Music - The Complete Cameo Recordings 1966-1967

Read "Heavy Music - The Complete Cameo Recordings 1966-1967" reviewed by Doug Collette

Bob Seger has been stubbornly reticent about the distiribution of his catalog in the wake of the CD and the rise of streaming services, so the issue of his early output on Heavy Music: The Complete Cameo Recordings 1966-1967 is a sign of astute archiving. Ten tracks on a single disc isn't usually a treasure trove, ...

Greatest Other People's Hits

Read "Greatest Other People's Hits" reviewed by Doug Collette

In keeping with his adopted moniker, John Wesley Harding, nee Wes Stace, has too often been a bit too clever in penning original material from his position in the circle of late Seventies-early Eighties songwriters including Elvis Costello and Graham Parker.

BANG! The Bert Berns Story
Abramorama
2018

BANG! The Bert Berns Story compares favorably to The Terry Kath Experience (FilmRise, 2017), not just in the elevated quality of its conception and execution, but in its authorship by an offspring of the subject. Just as the Chicago guitarist's daughter, Michelle Sinclair, helmed the ...

Kurt Elling: The Questions

Read "The Questions" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dall'inizio del nuovo millennio Kurt Elling ha sempre più escluso dal suo repertorio brani swinganti e dinamici a favore di ballad o pop song. Gli esuberanti interventi in scat e le fantasiose escursioni vocali dei primi dischi (mutuate dal suo iniziale modello, Mark Murphy) hanno lasciato il posto a interpretazioni da crooner confidenziale, privilegiando interpretazioni eleganti, ...
