Peter Frampton & Cheap Trick
The Paramount
Huntington, NY
July 29, 2015

Frampton Comes Alive! (A&M, 1976) and Live At Budukan (Epic, 1978) are two of the most iconic live recordings of the past 40-or-so years. As such, it's only fitting (and inevitable) that Peter Frampton and Cheap Trick would eventually ...

NEWS: INTERVIEW

Interview: Damjan Krajacic

Q: When did you start playing the flute? Did your family already know you had an interest in music? A: I was a bit late coming to the flute, at 19. My main instrument was electric bass, and I dabbled into classical guitar and piano a bit prior to that. Once I entered college, I was part ...

Michael Gallant Trio: Completely

Read "Completely" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

For many an ivory-tickler, the piano trio is the perfect format for supper club-appropriate sashays through standards, but Michael Gallant doesn't think that way; he'd rather put a little power, pizzazz and punch into the piano trio, using it as a springboard to launch his oft-excitable tunes.

Gallant is a talented multi-tasker who ...

Web-based Radio Station Jet City Stream Exposes Thrilling New Seattle Talent, From Blues To Rock To Hip-hop

In the Emerald City, the slamming power pop and fuzz-bomb rock of Nirvana is now a faint echo of the past. It was only two decades ago when Seattle nearly ruled the world, when the technological advances of the Internet catapulted Microsoft into global dominance, when the town’s basketball and baseball teams thrust a refuse to lose ...

Todd Clouser's A Love Electric: 20th Century Folk Selections

Read "20th Century Folk Selections" reviewed by Mark Corroto

More than rock musicians and more than blues artists, jazz musicians carry the greatest burden of musical legacy. There are not stories about a contemporary rock musician who dedicates his career to mastering The Beatles catalog, or of the one who's playing is paralyzed because she cannot deal with Jimi Hendrix's solos. Nope. Only in jazz ...

Eddie Vedder
Ukulele Songs
Monkey Wrench
2011

The ballad “More Than You Know" was written by Vincent Youmans, Billy Rose and Edward Eliscu in 1929, a souvenir from a long gone era that a romantic might be tempted to posit represented “simpler times." Insofar as it's unlikely that anyone reading this ...
