Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live In Maui

Read "Live In Maui" reviewed by Doug Collette

It's been quite the circuitous route from the second official posthumous Jimi Hendrix release Rainbow Bridge (Reprise, 1971) to Music, Money, Madness... Live In Maui. And while video component of the 2020 Jimi Hendrix archive release seems like much ado about nothing in its examination of the aforementioned film, the concert content of the Experience reminds ...

Dave Mason: Alone Together Again

Read "Alone Together Again" reviewed by Doug Collette

At the time of its release in July of 1970, Dave Mason's debut solo album, Alone Together (Blue Thumb Records, 1970), was the proverbial perfect storm, a flash-point of both creative art and commerce that remains a singular object of fascination in the annals of contemporary rock. Produced by label co-founder Tommy LiPuma, in conjunction with ...

Dave Brubeck Quartet: Time OutTakes

Read "Time OutTakes" reviewed by Chris May

Few albums in jazz history are as giant as the Dave Brubeck Quartet's Time Out (Columbia, 1959). Deftly balancing experimentation with accessibility and containing amongst its many pleasures one of the most thrilling drum solos ever recorded, Time Out has become so familiar to us that the magnitude of its greatness has become near inaudible.

U2: All That You Can't Leave Behind 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD)

Read "All That You Can't Leave Behind 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD)" reviewed by Doug Collette

The music of U2 on All That You Can't Leave Behind is very much in keeping with the austere black and white graphics, preserved throughout the graphic design of this digipak as well as its enclosed twenty-four page booklet within. A distinct move away from the density of production experimentation on their three previous studio albums—Achtung ...

Bill Laswell / Opening Performance Orchestra / Iggy Pop / William S. Burroughs: The Acid Lands

Read "The Acid Lands" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

The legendary literary outlaw and cult personality William Burroughs has had a lasting influence on literature, pop music, film, and contemporary art. Although a controversial figure due to his impenitent heroin addiction, occult dabbling, the spread of conspiracy theories, and firsthand experiences in the criminal underworlds, he still inspired musicians from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Led ...

Lang Lang: Johann Sebastian Bach: Goldberg Variations Deluxe Edition

Read "Johann Sebastian Bach: Goldberg Variations Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

An early biography of composer J.S. Bach by Johann Nikolaus Forke tells the story of how the famous variations known as Goldberg Variations came to be. Bach received a commission from Count Hermann Carl von Keyserlingk, the insomniac Russian ambassador to the Kingdom of Saxony to compose a set of variations that would help him ward ...

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). ...

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 ...

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 ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
