America

America is a British-American rock band formed in London in 1970 by Dewey Bunnell, Dan Peek, and Gerry Beckley. The trio met as sons of US Air Force personnel stationed in London, where they began performing live. Achieving significant popularity in the 1970s, the trio was famous for their close vocal harmonies and light acoustic folk rock sound. The band released a string of hit albums and singles, many of which found airplay on pop/soft rock stations. The band came together shortly after the members' graduation from high school, and a record deal with Warner Bros. Records followed. Their debut 1971 album, America, included the transatlantic hits "A Horse with No Name" and "I Need You"; Homecoming (1972) included the single "Ventura Highway"; and Hat Trick (1973), a modest success on the charts which fared poorly in sales, included one minor hit song "Muskrat Love"

Wadada Leo Smith / Jack DeJohnette: America

Read "America" reviewed by Troy Collins


Originally proposed to ECM Records in 1979, the collaboration of trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith and drummer Jack DeJohnette has finally found new life in America. Recorded last year in Bill Laswell's New Jersey studio (but without his heavy-handed production aesthetic), this unadorned acoustic session documents two of the world's most versatile and virtuosic improvisers working through ...

Cooper-Moore & Assif Tsahar: America

Read "America" reviewed by Rex  Butters


After adopting a low profile following the breakup of William Parker’s In Order to Survive band, Cooper-Moore returns very high profile in duet with leather-lunged reed man Assif Tsahar, who also brings acoustic guitar. Cooper-Moore, known for a pianistic range that allows him to be elegiac or shred, adds his homemade diddley-bo and mouth bow, as ...

Assif Tsahar/Cooper-Moore: America

Read "America" reviewed by Jeff Stockton


I suppose America should be categorized as jazz, since it was made by two musicians who have played jazz in the past. The underrecorded Cooper-Moore usually appears on piano, and Assif Tsahar is best known for his Ayler/late Coltrane-style tenor saxophone workouts—and these men play those instruments here, but this is a recording that defies categorization. ...

Cooper-Moore & Assif Tsahar: America

Read "America" reviewed by AAJ Staff


Half protest statement and half call for renewal, America offers a wonderful combination of the familiar and the unexpected. The heartland music known as Americana--for lack of a better term--meets up here with an eager partner in the form of improvisation. As a definitive missive of social protest, the opening track presents the only ...
