Rhiannon Giddens & Francesco Turrisi: Trading Comforts

Read "Rhiannon Giddens & Francesco Turrisi: Trading Comforts" reviewed by Tyran Grillo


While Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi are often billed as a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, respectively, on their latest Nonesuch release, They're Calling Me Home, those categorizations are interchangeable. To be sure, Giddens' voice is a central pillar of the album's tent-like structure, into which she and Turrisi invite lifetimes' worth of emotional timelines. But her viola ...

Read "Return to Forever: Back, Bold and Badass" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke


This article was first published at All About Jazz in June 2008. The word has long been out and the 2008 reunion tour of Return to Forever, one of the standard bearers of the jazz-rock fusion movement of the 1970s, is well on its way.

Delbert McClinton: Tall, Dark & Handsome

Read "Tall, Dark & Handsome" reviewed by Doug Collette


On his last album Prick of the Litter (Hot Shot Records, 2017 ), Grammy-Award winning [Delbert McClinton wholly fulfilled his image as the contemporary definition of modern Texas style r&b.

All are brought to the forefront on Learn ...

There's a solid Ace of Cups album within the twenty-one plus tracks on this set. Never having released a studio work in the fifty-one years since the group made a name for itself in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury, it only stands to reason AOC would be sorely tempted to make a statement for its debut, particularly in ...
