Shawn Lane


Shawn Lane (March 21, 1963 - September 26, 2003) was an American musician, composer and polymath. He quickly became a noted player in underground guitar circles and joined Black Oak Arkansas when he was just fourteen years old. He is best known for his solo album Powers of Ten and his long stint with former John McLaughlin bassist Jonas Hellborg. Shawn Lane was born in Memphis, Tennessee.

Michael Shrieve: Palace Of Dreams

Read "Michael Shrieve: Palace Of Dreams" reviewed by Mike Jacobs

From the dual-project, double album Two Doors (CMP, 1995) that features drummer Michael Shrieve manning the drum kit in two different trios, it's arguably the Deep Umbra disc with bassist Jonas Hellborg and guitarist Shawn Lane that is the brighter half of that binary star. Shrieve may indeed get top billing here but like so many ...

Kristina Koller Get Out Of Town Self Produced 2022 Youthful, vibrant, and musically precocious, vocalist / composer Kristina Koller answers her two previous recordings: the gracefully insurgent Perception (Self Produced, 2018) and frankly anarchic Stronger (Self Produced, 2019) with the intensely focused Get Out Of Town, devoted to a dramatic ...

Darden Purcell: Easy Living

Read "Easy Living" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Working backwards, I discovered DC-area jazz vocalist and educator Darden Purcell with her second recording, Where the Blue Begins (Armored Records, 2016). It was an impressive recital with the nominal theme of twilight winding through its repertoire. While less thematically focused, Easy Living remains a well programmed set of eleven standards, “My Funny Valentine" thankfully not ...

Jeff Sipe Trio: Jeff Sipe Trio featuring Mike Seal and Taylor Lee

Read "Jeff Sipe Trio featuring Mike Seal and Taylor Lee" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Drummer Jeff Sipe was a member of Colonel Bruce Hampton's Aquarium Rescue Unit and has played with many other musicians. But probably his most visible association was the power trio with Jonas Hellborg and Shawn Lane, followed by a more recent trio with guitarist Alex Machacek. So he is clearly very comfortable in an improvising rock/jazz ...

Alexander Baboian: Alex Baboian - Piano Bench

Read "Alex Baboian - Piano Bench" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Jazz trio treatment of classical music is nothing new. French pianist Jacques Loussier has been doing it for 30 years with releases like Bach: The Brandenburgs (Telarc, 2006) and Mozart Piano Concertos 20/23 (Telarc, 2006), among many others. So, Alex Baboian's Piano Bench might not appear as novel as it is. But it is unique in ...
