CD Review: Los Lobos, "Tin Can Trust"

CD Review: Los Lobos, "Tin Can Trust"

Quick, name another band whose lineup has been intact for 26 years. Not that easy is it? Not these days, not any days. Los Lobos can claim that distinction. Steve Berlin (sax, keyboards) is the new guy. He joined in 1984. Cesar Rosas (guitar, vocals), David Hidalgo (guitar, violin, accordion, vocals), Louie Perez (guitar, drums, vocals), ...


Blu-Ray Review: "Fantastic Mr. Fox"

I know this is absolute heresy for a guy in my line of work, but Ive never been a big fan of Wes Andersons filmmaking. There's a difference between developing real, honest characters with believable flaws and simply loading up the screen with quirk for quirks sake, and I think Anderson too often falls back on ...


DVD Review: "British Invasion"

DVD Review: "British Invasion"

On February 7, 1964, the Beatles arrived in America, and everything changed. When I say everything, I dont just mean music. The world was never the same. The societal upheaval was simply unprecedented. The new found freedom the Liverpool quartet inspired would have profound consequences, both positive and negative, for generations to come. And the Beatles ...


CD Review: The Bird and the Bee, "Interpreting the Masters Volume 1: A Tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates"

f there is anything to be said of The Bird and the Bee; it is that they certainly are aware of their aesthetic; and they play to it with great aplomb. If the success of the groups paring of said vision with the Bee Gees Saturday Night Fever classic How Deep is Your Love is any indication, ...


DVD Review: Chicago, "Chicago Transit Authority" (Quadrophonic Mix)

I don't think there's a band on the planet that's done a more thorough job of repackaging its hits than Chicago and in the 20 years since scoring its last meaningful hit, the band has really cranked the compilation machine into overdrive, churning out best-ofs, ballad collections, live albums, anniversary sets, and any other type of ...


Bourbon Street: "Short Notes on Four Bourbons"

Blanton's: I was the beneficiary of an act of trickle down economics a few months ago Work was a tremendous pressure cooker that month, and I think my boss was very aware of my elevated stress level. Knowing that I'm very fond of bourbon, he asked me to lunch one day, and on the way back, ...


CD Review: Graham Parker, "Imaginary Television"

Coming from the 1970s UK pub-rock scene, Graham Parker had to slip away from the shadows cast by Nick Lowe, the producer of his first album Howlin Wind, and the burgeoning legend of Elvis Costello. Adept at sharp lyrics, a wicked wit and a keen sense of how to wed it to visceral rock and roll, ...


CD Review: Jimi Hendrix, "Valleys of Neptune"

CD Review: Jimi Hendrix, "Valleys of Neptune"

Given Jimi Hendrix's stature as one of the all-time greatest rock guitarists, the release of any new, previously unreleased material from the 40-years-dead guitar god tends to be cause for celebration. And why the hell not? Much of his barrel-bottom scrapings have more soul in them than the master cuts of more skillful axe-wankers. If you're ...


No Concessions: Scorsese, Polanski Still Crazy After All These Years

Film culture today, I muttered, as I waded through (and into) an unusually bothersome post on the usually half-annoying (but compulsively readable) Hollywood Elsewhere site. Look: Its OK not to get, or to enjoy, Douglas Sirk pictures like All That Heaven Allows (1955) or Imitation of Life (1959). Im not all that crazy about Terrence Malick ...


CD Review: Gil Scott-Heron, "I'm New Here"

CD Review: Gil Scott-Heron, "I'm New Here"

On the back of the booklet in Gil Scott-Herons Im New Here CD is a message. The message reads as follows: There is a proper procedure for taking advantage of any investment. Music, for example. Buying a CD is an investment. To get the maximum, you must listen to it for the first time under optimum ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
