Taj Mahal: Savoy

Taj Mahal: Savoy

Read "Savoy" reviewed by Dave Linn


Savoy, from Taj Mahal, is the latest entrant in the crowded field of pop music artists trying their hand at the fertile songbook of old big-band, swing-era standards. Unlike most, Mahal's roots show he's well suited to the task. He was born in Harlem in 1942. He grew up in a musical family, and his parents ...

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.

In building their respective careers of no little renown, Sass Jordan and Dana Fuchs have both proven they can deliver ...

New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers: Vol. 2

Read "Vol. 2" reviewed by Doug Collette


The New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers Volume 2 is replete with the same instinctual camaraderie and musicianly savvy as its predecessor. Likewise culled from sessions recorded in 2007, this sequel is decidedly not comprised of mere leftovers or otherwise sub-par tracks originally left unreleased. On the contrary, the alternately upbeat and reflective atmosphere reaffirms the ...

Blues Masters: Elvin Bishop & Charlie Musselwhite and New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers

Read "Blues Masters: Elvin Bishop & Charlie Musselwhite and New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers" reviewed by Doug Collette


The tradition of the blues remains tried but true over generations of musicians and fans, the devotion of the latter mirroring and complementing the loyalty of the former. And the twisting, turning geography of the music's evolution, from Africa to the Southern delta (and its adjacent hill country) up the Mississippi River to Chicago, is itself ...
