Gov't Mule

Rock torchbearers Gov’t Mule are celebrating their 20th anniversary with an extensive tour and a series of dynamic live archival releases that highlight the group’s versatility and epic, fearless live performances. No two Gov’t Mule shows are alike, as the band draws on the more than 300 songs in their repertoire (and often a host of special guests) to create a unique experience each and every time. Their steadily expanding fan base knows that the Mule always has something special waiting for them. Expect the unexpected.

The deep chemistry and steely confidence shared by the quartet allow them to tackle any form of music and stamp it their own while remaining true to the spirit and intent of the original. This can of course be heard any time guitarist-singer Warren Haynes, drummer Matt Abts, bassist Jorgen Carlsson and multi-instrumentalist Danny Louis take the stage, but a series of new live archival releases really drives the point home.

Gov't Mule: Bring On The Music - Live at the Capitol Theatre

Read "Bring On The Music - Live at the Capitol Theatre" reviewed by Doug Collette

In the essay within the 2CD/2DVD package of Gov't Mule's Bring On The Music, Warren Haynes makes note of the the group's twenty-fifth anniversary. And while the co-founder and titular leader of an ensemble originally spun off from the Allman Brothers Band goes to great length in rightfully stipulating the band's music as the source of ...

John Scofield: Combo 66

Read "Combo 66" reviewed by Doug Collette

The dignified portraits of John Scofield on the front and back covers of Combo 66 are at once in keeping with the reference to his age in the album's name and at odds with the youthful vigor he and his bandmates exhibit in playing the music inside this subtly eye-catching package of all new material.

The Marcus King Band: Due North

Read "Due North" reviewed by Doug Collette

It should come as no surprise that the Marcus King Band is developing a work ethic remarkably similar to Gov't Mule. The latter band's titular leader, Warren Haynes, produced their eponymous second album which was released on Fantasy Records, the same label on which the Mule now resides. And, not coincidentally, MKD has the same management ...

Sermon Organ Combo: Sermon Organ Combo

Read "Sermon Organ Combo" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

American jazz styles have been travelling all over the world and getting absorbed by local musicians for close to a century now. Therefore there's nothing unusual about a soul-jazz organ trio coming out of Denmark, but the Sermon Organ Combo have a lot more going on than just playing recycled Jimmy Smith licks. This ...

The Seth Yacovone Band: Shovel Down

Read "Shovel Down" reviewed by Doug Collette

Vintage hard rock with heavy metal overtones that should appeal as much to fans of the original Gov't Mule as those of early Black Sabbath, the initial studio album by The Seth Yacovone Band 2.0., Shovel Down is the initial and fairly lofty plateau in a judicious plan by the bandleader to remain as independent as ...

Praised, mentored and produced by none other than the titular leader of Gov't Mule, Warren Haynes, precocious twenty-year old songwriter/guitarist/vocalist/bandleader Marcus King faces some heady expectations with the release of he and his band's second full-length LP and first for Fantasy Records via the Evil Teen imprimatur. But The Marcus King Band addresses those ...

John Scofield: Country for Old Men

Read "John Scofield: Country for Old Men" reviewed by John Kelman

When guitarist Bill Frisell first began a more decided focus on roots music, bluegrass and country & western music with the release of 1996's Nashville (Nonesuch), despite being largely very well-received, jazz purists rankled when the largely bluegrass/folk-informed album began to garner awards like Downbeat Magazine's Best Jazz Album of the Year. While Frisell's oftentimes Americana-tinged ...

Warren Haynes and the Ashes and Dust Band Ogden Theater Denver, CO April 1, 2016 Warren Haynes' musical journey continues. Is he on a quest?
