Read "Dave’s Picks Volume 38: Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Uniondale, NY 9/8/73" reviewed by Doug Collette


For all the most practical of reasons, the Grateful Dead were never better in live performance than in 1973-1974. Those pertinent virtues of this iconic rock and roll band on stage are fully on display over the course of this three-CD edition of Dave's Picks, a clear depiction of the sweet spot between structured and open-ended ...

Frank Kimbrough: Frank Kimbrough 2003 - 2006

Read "Frank Kimbrough 2003 - 2006" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Pianist Frank Kimbrough (1956 -2020) was involved in a good deal of collaboration throughout his career, with the Herbie Nichols Project and, most notably, his twenty-four year, seven CD stint in the piano chair of the Maria Schneider Orchestra, where he elevated an already high altitude music to an even loftier level. Such was Kimbrough's willingness ...

Lajos Dudas: Radio Days Vol. 2

Read "Radio Days Vol. 2" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


The previous compilation Radio Days: The Music Of Lajos Dudas (JazzSick Records, 2016) was released to celebrate German-Hungarian jazz clarinetist/composer Lajos Dudas' 75th birthday. It collected performances dating from 1984 to the early 2000s: about twenty years. The new volume's coverage is both wider and deeper. The dates range from 1976 to 2017—over forty years—and the ...

Larry Goldings/Peter Bernstein/Bill Stewart: Perpetual Pendulum

Read "Perpetual Pendulum" reviewed by Doug Collette


Keyboardist Larry Goldings, guitarist Peter Bernstein and drummer Bill Stewart have some history. It extends back to performing in clubs in the late Eighties and then, via decidedly circuitous routes, recording together as a threesome in the Nineties. It's a confluence of circumstance and talent that would continue through the three's appearances on a pair of ...

Exposures

Read "Exposures" reviewed by John Kelman


Between the impact of the COVID pandemic since 2020, and in the eight year-long tenure of King Crimson's final lineup, which toured between 2014 and 2021, there's been a lot revealed about its sole remaining founding member, guitarist/keyboardist Robert Fripp. Since 2012, the more than five-decade history of King Crimson, live and in the ...

The Rolling Stones: El Mocambo 1977

Read "El Mocambo 1977" reviewed by Doug Collette


The die-cut design of the double-CD cover for the Rolling Stones' El Mocambo 1977 mitigates at least to some degree the borderline amateurish cover art. But reversing the pink and blue covers of the twenty-page booklet inside the dual-fold package achieves a greater end than simply altering the simplistic cosmetics; its extraction also reveals a Paul ...

Graham Parker: Another Grey Area 40th Anniversary Edition

Read "Another Grey Area 40th Anniversary Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette


Iconoclassic Records lives up to its label name with this Graham Parker reissue. Admittedly a niche artist, this irascible Brit has seen more than a few excerpts from his lengthy discography treated with the meticulous care that bespeaks true labors of love, and this initial release of Parker's sans the splendid backing band known as the ...

Music For Ukraine

Read "Music For Ukraine" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Music For Ukraine is a benefit album whose proceeds are intended solely for humanitarian aid in Ukraine. This gargantuan compilation features artists from the roster of Finnish label We Jazz Records. The twenty-six tracks—contemporary jazz for the most part, with the odd foray into modern chamber and electronica-tinged experimentalism—amount to two-and-a-half hours of compelling music. A ...

Poco: One Night in Nashville

Read "One Night in Nashville" reviewed by Doug Collette


What at a glance looks like a lost treasure, Poco's One Night in Nashville, is in fact a re-release of a title available on CD/DVD around the time of its recording in 2004. It has existed under different titles in the interim and this reissue (with its own seemingly varied cover graphics) actually exists on both ...
