Sass Jordan & Dana Fuchs: Two Chanteuses' Blues

Read "Sass Jordan & Dana Fuchs: Two Chanteuses' Blues" reviewed by Doug Collette


When performed with style, grace and depth of feeling, singing the blues is a wonder to behold. But when such virtues are replaced by histrionics, affectation and musical self-indulgence, the performers and the performances fall flat. In building their respective careers of no little renown, Sass Jordan and Dana Fuchs have both proven they can deliver ...

The Rolling Stones: El Mocambo 1977

Read "El Mocambo 1977" reviewed by Doug Collette


The die-cut design of the double-CD cover for the Rolling Stones' El Mocambo 1977 mitigates at least to some degree the borderline amateurish cover art. But reversing the pink and blue covers of the twenty-page booklet inside the dual-fold package achieves a greater end than simply altering the simplistic cosmetics; its extraction also reveals a Paul ...

Graham Parker: Another Grey Area 40th Anniversary Edition

Read "Another Grey Area 40th Anniversary Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette


Iconoclassic Records lives up to its label name with this Graham Parker reissue. Admittedly a niche artist, this irascible Brit has seen more than a few excerpts from his lengthy discography treated with the meticulous care that bespeaks true labors of love, and this initial release of Parker's sans the splendid backing band known as the ...

Nicole Henry: Time To Love Again

Read "Time To Love Again" reviewed by Richard J Salvucci


Nicole Henry has been making a lot of noise, nicely, with her latest album. It is easy to see why. While critics compare her to everyone from Natalie Cole to Whitney Houston, she really does sound like herself. She swings elegantly and does not oversing. Her intonation, diction and phrasing are impeccable. ...

Michael Jackson & Jimmy Smith to Stevie Wonder & Dizzy Gillespie — My Top Ten Jazz/Pop Encounters

Read "Michael Jackson & Jimmy Smith to Stevie Wonder & Dizzy Gillespie — My Top Ten Jazz/Pop Encounters" reviewed by Alan Bryson


It's a good bet that most of us have heard people say they don't like jazz, or even worse, drop the H-bomb, “I hate jazz." If you choose to engage, the key is to tread lightly and tailor an approach that considers the tastes and sensibilities of the other person. The “So You Don't Like Jazz" ...

Read "Springtime in New York 1980-1985: The Bootleg Series, Volume 16 (5CD)" reviewed by Doug Collette


Generally speaking, revelations abound within the various installments of The Bootleg Series, Bob Dylan's ongoing archive initiative, and Volume 16 is no exception. But in listening to Springtime in New York, 1980- 1985, the epiphanies come in slow bursts, flashing over the course of the five CDs to generate a cumulative momentum that reaches a flash-point ...

Sam Cooke: Legend

Read "Sam Cooke: Legend" reviewed by Doug Collette


Sam Cooke Legend Abkco 2021 With a running time of seventy minutes, the documentary on singer/composer/producer Sam Cooke is far shorter than the bonus material included on the DVD of Legend. But in its own way, that's fitting as the late r&b/soul icon's lasting influence, based on his varied career as ...

Who Do You Think We Are?

Read "Who Do You Think We Are?" reviewed by John Kelman


Trying to find a distinct definition of what has come to be known as “The Canterbury Sound" is as elusive as attempting to describe what, in the jazz world, has become an overused epithet for the German ECM Records label and “The ECM Sound." Attempts to do so usually fail short because, rather than being actual ...
