The Archive of Contemporary Music

Read "The Archive of Contemporary Music" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In Lower Manhattan, sits a musical gold mine. It's the motherlode of recorded music though the small, brightly colored sign above a grey steel door provides only a cryptic clue. The dusty window display of rare 78 RPM records, broken into erratic pie charts serves as a vestige of the past and a cautionary tale about ...

The Rolling Stones: Let It Bleed: 50th Anniversary Limited Deluxe Edition

Read "Let It Bleed: 50th Anniversary Limited Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Rolling Stones' Let It Bleed 50th Anniversary Limited Deluxe Edition is both more and less of what usually comprises such milestone packages. And that's whether it's perceived as a magnificent scrapbook or a veritable mobile museum. There is certainly much more in terms of peripherals included, such as the hand-numbered replica-signed lithographs, a full-color poster, ...

Sparky Parker: In the Dark

Read "In the Dark" reviewed by Jim Trageser

Crafting the perfect riff has been the goal of every blues and rock guitarist since Jimi Hendrix first began channeling Albert King. Welding a memorable theme to jaw-dropping technique is the surest way for a budding guitarist to elevate his or her reputation. Houston, Texas' Sparky Parker's debut opens with one of those defining ...

Can't Give It Away on Seventh Avenue: The Rolling Stones and New York City Christopher McKittrick 256 pages ISBN: #978-1642930399 Post Hill Press2019 Based on his extremely well-wrought prologue, Christoper McKittrick's Can't Give It Away on Seventh Avenue would seem to be based on a very finite premise. But ...

Marianne Faithfull: Come And Stay With Me: The UK 45's 1964-1969

Read "Come And Stay With Me: The UK 45's 1964-1969" reviewed by Doug Collette

If Come And Stay With Me proves anything, it is that Marianne Faithfull was hardly the mere waif she appeared to be during her initial rise to fame. This collection of her earliest work, comprised of the A and B-sides of UK Decca singles plus the Go Away From My World EP, suggest a resilience borne ...

Rolling Stones: Beggars Banquet 50th Anniversary Edition

Read "Beggars Banquet 50th Anniversary Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

With the exception of the expanded versions of Exile On Main Street (UME, 2010), Sticky Fingers (UME, 2011) and Some Girls (UME, 2015), the arguable essentials of their discography, the Rolling Stones have confined the archiving of their vault to unreleased concert material on audio and video rather than plumbing the depths for unreleased outtakes, demos ...

Dreaming of Dylan: 115 Dreams About Bob Mary Lee Kortes 160 Pages ISBN: #978-1947026179 BMG Books 2018 Considering the subject of Mary Lee Kortes' Dreaming of Dylan, it may sound implausible to suggest the cover reminds of nothing so much as books of Shel Silverstein such as The Giving ...

Thanks A Lot Mr Kibblewhite Roger Daltrey 272 Pages ISBN: #978-1250296030 Henry Holt and Co. 2018 Unlike most rock and roll memoirs, Roger Daltrey's is not a tell-all. Far from it, because, like most interviews the author conducts, Thanks A Lot Mr Kibblewhite is based on the 'less said ...

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.
