Natalie Cressman, daughter of vocalist Sandy Cressman and trombonist Jeff Cressman, has had just such an upbringing, and her debut album Unfolding indicates that she is making ...

Phish: 12/6/97 The Palace of Auburn Hills and Star Lake '98

Read "Phish: 12/6/97 The Palace of Auburn Hills and Star Lake '98" reviewed by Doug Collette

As with other Phish archive titles such as Chicago '94 (Jemp, 2012), The Palace of Auburn Hills December 6,1997 and Star Lake '98 offer more than mere comparison and contrast of musicianship: the download/two-CD set and DVD alternately accentuate and complement the band's current activities. And while both titles boast eye-catching graphics (the former eschews generic ...

New York, NY
September 6th, 2012

The trombone is not an instrument that tolerates mediocrity. Because of the instrument's many idiosyncrasies, there's no real chance for the slide instrumentalist to get caught in the purgatory of empty virtuosity often exhibited by up-and-coming guitarists and saxophonists. The practitioners who persevere ...

Phish: 10.31.09 Festival 8: Indio, California

Read "10.31.09 Festival 8: Indio, California" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

In 1994, Phish inaugurated the practice of covering a famous classic rock album as the second of three sets making up its Halloween concerts. The band termed these concerts its “musical costumes." The first classic recording it chose to honor was The Beatles' White Album (Apple, 1968). Since that time, Phish has honored, in 1995, The ...

What's most striking at the outset of Phish's Coral Sky DVD is how much the band's presentation here, in November 1996, is so remarkably similar to the sound and vision of the Vermont-based jamband since its reunion in 2009. From the sight of drummer Jon ...
