The Last Night At The Old Place

Read "The Last Night At The Old Place" reviewed by Duncan Heining


By any standards the release of The Last Night At The Old Place will prove to be one of archive releases of the year, second only, perhaps, to the 'Lost' Coltrane album.

Theo Jackson: Shoeless And The Girl

Read "Shoeless And The Girl" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Theo Jackson's second album, Shoeless And The Girl, is an old-fashioned kind of record. That's “old-fashioned" as in melodic, swinging, understated, lyrically engaging--old-fashioned in a really good way.Jackson's debut, Jericho (Self Produced, 2012), was impressive but the lengthy songs sometimes lost focus.

Singer, pianist and songwriter Theo Jackson lives in Oxford, of university fame, and his debut album Jericho is named after an area of the city rather than the ancient town that suffered so much from an excessively loud horn section. There's no need to fear excessively loud horns here: Jackson and his quartet build drama with ...
