Gurf Morlix: Impossible Blue

Read "Impossible Blue" reviewed by Doug Collette

An object lesson in simplicity, Gurf Morlix' Impossible Blue is one fast shuffle away from pure excellence. Yet even with due recognition for this, his tenth album, the Americana Award-winning man may yet remain better known by association: collaboration with Americana master Peter Case on his eponymous debut and as a fifteen-year tenure Lucinda Williams (during ...

Charles Lloyd & the Marvels with Lucinda Williams
Zellerbach Hall

Charles Lloyd & the Marvels + Lucinda Williams: Vanished Gardens

Read "Vanished Gardens" reviewed by Luca Muchetti

Un incanto di album. La chitarra tesa, dai richiami folk e sognante è quella inconfondibile del maestro Bill Frisell, il sassofono è quello lirico di Charles Lloyd, il musicista che dal quartetto anni Sessanta con Keith Jarrett passò ai Celebration al fianco dei Beach Boys per poi tornare al jazz negli anni Ottanta e Novanta dopo ...

Charles Lloyd &The Marvels + Lucinda Williams: Vanished Gardens
