Jimmy Haslip: Amperes Beyond The BASSics, Part 1

Read "Jimmy Haslip: Amperes Beyond The BASSics, Part 1" reviewed by Jim Worsley

The name Jimmy Haslip needs no introduction. So, he doesn't get one. Seriously, we had a lot of ground to cover and he had so many great stories and interesting asides to share that we are breaking the interview into two parts as it is. So, without further ado... All About Jazz: I ...

Gene Clark: No Other Deluxe Edition

Read "No Other Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

The range of packages available in the reissue campaign devoted to the late Gene Clark's No Other (Asylum, 1974) mirrors the evolution of fascination with the former Byrd's fourth solo album. The progression is almost linear from single vinyl and compact disc to deluxe and super deluxe editions and encompasses a protracted sequence of events: beginning ...

Tony Molina: Songs From San Mateo County

Read "Songs From San Mateo County" reviewed by John Bricker

Songs From San Mateo County would seem like an afterthought from a musician with a normal discography. The compilation of 14 unfinished and unreleased tracks, most barely more than one minute long, gives each song barely enough time to make an impression before rushing on to the next. This brief project only makes sense coming from ...

The Long Ryders: Psychedelic Country Soul

Read "Psychedelic Country Soul" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Long Ryders remained on the periphery of the so-called Paisley Underground of the '80s, resting virtually alone in the “cowpunk" niche until Uncle Tupelo appeared in the next decade under the aegis of “alternative country." Shepherded by Coal Porters member and Million Dollar Bash author Sid Griffin, The Long Ryders have periodically regrouped for brief ...

Big Star: Live-r Than They Ever Were

Read "Big Star: Live-r Than They Ever Were" reviewed by Doug Collette

In recent years, the cult of personality surrounding power-pop pioneers Big Star has reached near-obsessive levels. Between band reissues large and small, tribute concerts and archiving of the solo work of its principals, Alex Chilton and the late Chris Bell, the devotion of the fan base has isn't likely to subside anytime soon either, so it's ...

Tom Petty: An American Treasure

Read "An American Treasure" reviewed by Doug Collette

In a direct, no nonsense gesture the subject of this anthology would no doubt appreciate, the earliest inclusions on the 4-CD anthology An American Treasure illustrate how Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers forged their own style of songwriting and playing from Bob Dylan, the Byrds and the Rolling Stones. “Surrender," “Listen To Her Heart," and" You're ...

Gene Clark sings For You and A Trip Through The Rose Garden

Read "Gene Clark sings For You and A Trip Through The Rose Garden" reviewed by Doug Collette

The legacy of the Byrds looms large in the annals of contemporary rock, ever increasingly so as it pertains to the late Gene Clark. One of its main vocalists, he is usually seen stage center in the alignment of the original band in performance, a position that stands as an apt metaphor for his contributions to ...

Son Volt: The Search Deluxe Reissue

Read "The Search Deluxe Reissue" reviewed by Doug Collette

The reissue of Son Volt's The Search on both CD and vinyl configurations ties up loose ends in the seminal Americana band's discography, but, more importantly, it documents Jay Farrar's earliest departure into variations on his fundamental style of writing and recording. In doing so, it reaffirms his status as one of our most insightful and ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
