Little Feat

In his preface to a recent Little Feat retrospective compilation, the band's Paul Barrere wrote, "It's almost 33 years ago exactly since Mr. [Lowell] George came to the front door of the Laurel Canyon house I was livin' in, with that beautiful white "p" bass in hand, and asked if I wanted to try out as bass player for his new band. As most who know the story's end can tell you, as a bassist I make an excellent guitarist, and 3 years later--when I finally began my stint in Little Feat-- I would never have guessed that I would be here writing these liner notes to yet another chapter in the now storied life of a band that has been my life, and a true labor of love." Truth is, there really is no story's end yet, and Little Feat have indeed led a storied life ever since they formed in 1969

Jonah Tolchin: Fires From The Cold

Read "Fires From The Cold" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jonah Tolchin's fourth solo album, Fires For The Cold, boasts some notable selling points, but ultimately stands on its own terms as an estimable, if somewhat narrowly circumscribed, piece of work. The vocal contributions of Jackson Browne and Rickie Lee Jones buttress the delicacy of the recording's predominantly acoustic textures, as does the artist's discerning inclusion ...

Blackberry Smoke: Find A Light

Read "Find A Light" reviewed by Doug Collette

Since that flash-point in the Fifties by which blues and country musics were fused into rock and roll, this hybrid has evolved via a seemingly endless series of permutations, the most derivative of which are an amorphous amalgamation of influences. In contrast, the most memorable instances--or at least the ones with the most potential for extended ...

Trouble No More - The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 / 1979-1981

Read "Trouble No More - The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 / 1979-1981" reviewed by Doug Collette

As Bob Dylan is pictured on the front cover of his latest archive release, Trouble No More, aviator shades glinting in the spotlight with his arms akimbo over the Fender guitar strapped over his shoulder, he doesn't appear all that much different than the wildly combative folk-rocker of the mid-Sixties on which much of his legend ...

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.
