North Mississippi Allstars

A forgotten roll of film inspired a musical accompaniment, the North Mississippi Allstars’ new record Up and Rolling. Shot before the turn of the century, the photographs resonate with the music of four families from the Mississippi hills. The album captures the communal spirit upon which the band was founded. In 1996, a photographer from Texas, Wyatt McSpadden, traveled to North Mississippi looking to photograph local musicians. Brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson had grown up just south of Memphis and cut their teeth playing experimental rock & roll together, as well as the roots repertoire pioneered by their father, Jim Dickinson, a legendary producer (Big Star, the Replacements) and session player (Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan)

Gina Sicilia: Love Me Madly

Read "Love Me Madly" reviewed by Doug Collette

It is not to disparage Gina Sicilia in any way to say that she has come of age with her ninth album, Love Me Madly. Produced by North Mississippi Allstars' Cody Dickinson and prominently featuring Luther Dickinson, his sibling and co-founder of that group, the record carries some cosmetic similarities to the vintage sound of Philadelphia ...

Colin Linden & Luther Dickinson: Amour

Read "Amour" reviewed by Doug Collette

On Amour, Colin Linden (of Blackie & The Rodeo Kings) and Luther Dickinson (from North Mississippi Allstars) offer a collaborative paean to romantic love that is not entirely sentimental. Even on such an otherwise earnest effort, there is an inherent danger that might come across as campy, but the two guitarists/vocalists demonstrate an abiding loyalty to ...

John Hiatt: The Eclipse Sessions

Read "The Eclipse Sessions" reviewed by Doug Collette

Since John Hiatt hit his artistic and commercial stride with Bring The Family (A&M, 1987), the most listenable and durable albums of his have been those recorded with a band like the one appearing there (eventually known as Little Village: Ry Cooder, Nick Lowe and Jim Keltner). Offering comparably uniform musicianship in proportionate support of this ...

The Nighthawks: All You Gotta Do

Read "All You Gotta Do" reviewed by Doug Collette

On All You Gotta Do, The Nighthawks illustrate how they've established, then nurtured their vaunted status among the most venerated of American blues units for over four decades and upwards of twenty albums. The changes the band's seen under the tutelage of original founding member Mark Wenner continues unfettered on this self-produced album: the band alternately ...

Following a hiatus of sorts for The North Mississippi Allstars, during which time guitarist Luther Dickinson worked with The Black Crowes while drummer sibling Cody fronted his own band, Hill Country Revue, the group's reformation has fueled a fire within the music of Keys to the Kingdom. The music begins to flow in a ...

Beale Street Music Festival, Memphis in May 2010 Tom Lee Park, FedEx Blues Tent, Memphis, Tennessee May 2, 2010 April, indeed, may be the cruelest of months, but I doubt that a blue-blood like Thomas Sterns Eliot ever spent the sweaty seasons in Hell that are Spring and Summer in the cultural ...

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.
