Jakko M. Jakszyk: Secrets & Lies

Read "Secrets & Lies" reviewed by John Kelman


Life often unfolds in unexpected ways. For some, like Jakko M. Jakszyk, it has taken some truly surprising twists and turns. That the 62 year-old multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter has attained considerably greater visibility in the last ten years than in the previous 35 has, to say the least, righted a significant wrong. Which makes the ...

Northern Voices: Heather Bambrick and Brenda Earle Stokes

Read "Northern Voices: Heather Bambrick and Brenda Earle Stokes" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


There's a vast array of notable singers that have been given unto us from the Great White North. In terms of star power you have Joni Mitchell, k.d. Lang, Sarah McLachlan, Shania Twain, Bruce Cockburn, the lovably twangy Neil Young and a croaky Leonard Cohen. And, of course, we have genre-straddling, jazz-breathing mega-names like Michael Bublé ...

Bruford-Borstlap: Sheer Reckless Abandon

Read "Sheer Reckless Abandon" reviewed by John Kelman


One of the great joys of music can be that of distance: coming back to a piece of music, a musician/group or a discography, even, years later to rediscover it anew. While returning to music after a break of months, years...even decades...is not always a revelation, it's likely true that, if the music was appealing the ...

4 Wheel Drive: 4 Wheel Drive

Read "4 Wheel Drive" reviewed by Phillip Woolever


Sometimes it's not so much who's doing the playing as how well they play together. Just as some bands seem to perform beyond their individual skill sets, there have been heavily heralded, much hyped “super groups" that amounted to almost nothing of substance. In the case of 4 Wheel Drive, a quartet consisting of ...

Michael Leonhart: The Painted Lady Suite

Read "The Painted Lady Suite" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


A trent'anni esatti dalla scomparsa di Gil Evans, la sua lezione orchestrale rivive e si alimenta di nuove suggestioni. Il sorprendente e straordinario debutto della Michael Leonhart Orchestra rinnova un'estetica che in questi decenni ha ispirato Maria Schneider, in parte Darcy James Argue e alimentato la ricerca filologica e la rielaborazione di Ryan Truesdell.

Brand X: Locked & Loaded

Read "Locked & Loaded" reviewed by John Kelman


There are a great many bands whose lineups have been so fluid that keeping track of who was in the band when is no mean feat. Few bands have, however, had as complicated a history as Brand X. Even in its latest re-reincarnation, there's been a lineup shift between the high octane fusion group's January, 2017 ...

Meet Sarah V.

Read "Meet Sarah V." reviewed by Tessa Souter and Andrea Wolper


One of our youngest Super Fans yet, Sarah V might also be our most dedicated, attending over 200 concerts a year, and even moving to New York City to immerse herself more completely in the music scene. Like Super Fan “Jazz Judy" Balos, she likes to sit way up front--which, as you'll find out when you ...

Sean Noonan: Not Simply Beating a Dead Horse Drum

Read "Sean Noonan: Not Simply Beating a Dead Horse Drum" reviewed by Phillip Woolever


Composer and drummer Sean Noonan is an explorer, charting many edges of the compositional frontier. The term unique does not quite cover the range of his thoughtful, abstract approach to musical narrative.Edgy is often the operative theme in Noonan's repertoire, gleamed from studious sojourns to distant cultures and locales. Noonan's results take form in ...

Interview: Multi-Instrumentalist Paul Stafford

Q: You received your first drum kit at the age of five. Did your family already know you had an interest in music? A: I would say yes. The drum kit was purchased based on the constant beating on shoe boxes. My mindset was drumming as one would do in a school marching band. Although not ...

Interview: James "Jimmy G" Gutzman Of High Brow And The Shades

Q: When and how did High Brow and the Shades form? A: High Brow started the way a lot of bands start — a couple of guys from one band and a couple from another. That was in 1998. The newly-formed band was fortunate in that we had four strong vocalists. We could all sing lead ...
