Nate Smith: Kinfolk 2: See The Birds

Read "Kinfolk 2: See The Birds" reviewed by Mark Corroto


If there were brick & mortar establishments called record stores today, one could imagine the challenge Nate Smith's Kinfolk projects would pose for an employee trying to file his latest releases.

Julian Lage: Notes With The Weight Of Words

Read "Julian Lage: Notes With The Weight Of Words" reviewed by Leo Sidran


When Julian Lage plays guitar, it's hard not to get swept up in it. His relationship with the instrument is natural and contagious. Maybe that's because it's been with him for most of his life. When he was just 8 years old, Julian was the subject of an Academy Award nominated documentary film called Jules at ...

Steve Miller: Live! Breaking Ground August 3, 1977

Read "Live! Breaking Ground August 3, 1977" reviewed by Doug Collette


Given the careerist bent of Steve Miller around the time of Live! Breaking Ground: August 3, 1977, not to mention the popularity of concert releases in the wake of Frampton Comes Alive! (A&M,1976), it is altogether surprising the Space Cowboy did not issue a formal concert album until 1983. Miller came back from a self-imposed hiatus ...

My Morning Jacket: The Waterfall II

Read "The Waterfall II" reviewed by Doug Collette


My Morning Jacket's The Waterfall II is a logical step in the progression of this Kentucky band's career. It's a path that's taken a decidedly zig-zag pattern since the debut of The Tennessee Fire (Darla Records, 1999) and its follow-up At Dawn (Darla Records, 2001), arguably reaching its apogee with It Still Moves (ATO Records, 2003). ...

Steve Miller Band: Welcome To The Vault

Read "Welcome To The Vault" reviewed by Doug Collette


Ostentatious it may seem at a glance, the superficially lavish packaging of Welcome to the Vault may to a great extent allay the skepticism in a knowledgeable music lover all too aware of the multiplicity of previously-issued collections/anthologies of the Steve Miller Band. Above and below a large 3D-rendering of the 'Pegasus" logo, the silver embossed ...

Read "Love Hurts" reviewed by Doug Collette


By the release of Modern Lore (Mack Avenue, 2018), Julian Lage had fully established his very own style of modern jazz, one arising directly from his approach to the electric guitar. Justifiably proud of what he's accomplished to date, yet not content to rest on his laurels, Lage stretches himself on Love Hurts, simultaneously freshening the ...

The Long Ryders: Psychedelic Country Soul

Read "Psychedelic Country Soul" reviewed by Doug Collette

Shepherded by Coal Porters member and Million Dollar Bash author Sid Griffin, The Long Ryders have periodically regrouped for brief ...
