Phillip Johnston Returns with Diggin' Bones and The Adventures of Prince Achmed

Read "Phillip Johnston Returns with Diggin' Bones and The Adventures of Prince Achmed" reviewed by John Kelman


The consequences of change in the music industry have been predicted for some time now but, with far too many blinkered deniers, it's had to begin approaching critical mass before being recognized for what it is: the commoditization and devaluation of music that has led to increasing challenges for musicians looking to maintain any kind of ...

Nona Hendryx and Gary Lucas: The World Of Captain Beefheart

Read "The World Of Captain Beefheart" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Gary Lucas has been a long time fan of the one-of-a-kind mutant rock-jazz-blues of Captain Beefheart. This led to his being part of Beefheart's Magic Band in the '80s and to his revisiting the music after Beefheart's 1985 retirement in various formats including a raucous jazz tribute band, Fast 'n' Bulbous. This time he goes back ...

Fast 'n' Bulbous: Waxed Oop

Phillip Johnston: Page Of Madness

Read "Page Of Madness" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Saxophonist and composer Phillip Johnston has always been a step (or two) out of synch with trends in modern music. And that is a good thing. His eclectic '80s band Microscopic Septet was never given its due. Now, twenty years later, with the reissue of its Seven Men in Neckties: History of the Micros, Vol. 1 ...
