Blues Masters: Elvin Bishop & Charlie Musselwhite and New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers

Read "Blues Masters: Elvin Bishop & Charlie Musselwhite and New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers" reviewed by Doug Collette

The tradition of the blues remains tried but true over generations of musicians and fans, the devotion of the latter mirroring and complementing the loyalty of the former. And the twisting, turning geography of the music's evolution, from Africa to the Southern delta (and its adjacent hill country) up the Mississippi River to Chicago, is itself ...

The Paul Collins Beat: Another World: The Best of the Archives

Read "Another World: The Best of the Archives" reviewed by Doug Collette

One of the most enduring power-popsters of our era, no one has been more loyal to the style than Paul Collins. Yet no contemporaries of comparable devotion, including Shoes, Matthew Sweet and the late Tommy Keene, have struggled in quite the same relative anonymity. Still, the native New Yorker has remained both prolific and proud over ...

Fleetwood Mac: Then Play On - The Celebration Edition

Read "Then Play On - The Celebration Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Announced for release roughly five weeks prior to the passing of guitarist extraordinaire Peter Green, The Celebration Edition of Fleetwood Mac's Then Play On was originally conceived as a prelude to the Mick Fleetwood And Friends Celebrate The Music Of Peter Green concert film. As fate would have it (fortunately or unfortunately), the ornate CD package ...

Brian Auger: Introspection

Read "Introspection" reviewed by Doug Collette

A purposefully more far-ranging companion piece to The Best of Brian Auger's Oblivion Express (PolyGram, 1996), among other such compendia, Introspection is keyboardist/composer Brian Auger's personally-curated anthology covering the span of his career. In keeping with John Sellard's graphic design that features an array of period photos, the three-CDs' sound is as impeccable as its track ...

Grateful Dead: Workingman's Dead - 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "Workingman's Dead - 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Released on-line around the time of the fiftieth anniversary of the release of Workingman's Dead (Warner Bros., 1970), The Angel's Share of over two-and-a-half hours of unreleased studio outtakes and fly-on-the wall conversations from the recording sessions somewhat give the lie to the expeditious cost-effective time the Grateful Dead spent recording their landmark album. But it's ...

Piano Forte: Chick Corea & Ran Blake/Frank Carlberg

Read "Piano Forte: Chick Corea & Ran Blake/Frank Carlberg" reviewed by Doug Collette

Originally classified as a percussion device, the piano these days is also generally considered a stringed instrument and, certainly under the right hands, those eighty-eight keys have the ability to conjure up fluid lines that effectively combine melody and rhythm. It is hardly a surprise then that such a versatile tool has evolved into one of ...

Savoy Brown: Ain't Done Yet

Read "Ain't Done Yet" reviewed by Doug Collette

Kim Simmonds might not be quite as highly regarded in the contemporary blues milieu as “The Godfather of British Blues," John Mayall, but the former's forty-first album under the Savoy Brown monicker suggests he ought to be. As his profile has risen over the last five years, commensurate with his increased activity on the road and ...

Graham Parker: The Up Escalator - 40th Anniversary Edition

Read "The Up Escalator - 40th Anniversary Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

It might well be an exercise in futility to find a more potent transitional album than Graham Parker's The Up Escalator. At least that's what The 40th Anniversary Edition suggests, and in no uncertain terms. Why else open the album with a track of deserved braggadocio titled “No Holding Back" or close it with that sentiment ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
