The Volcanic World Of Pyroclastic Records

Read "The Volcanic World Of Pyroclastic Records" reviewed by Mark Corroto


As listeners we so often typecast musicians and music labels. Artists are pigeonholed into silos: classical, jazz, rock, blues, pop, etc.. Go into any record store (if you can find a brick & mortar one) and this segregation, a forced separation, is also evident. Even streaming services are divided in this manner. Maybe it is just ...

Heavy Rotation For A Pandemic Summer

Read "Heavy Rotation For A Pandemic Summer" reviewed by Mark Corroto


In the summer of 2020 one result of the COVID-19 isolation, and artists inability to tour and perform is that they have time to deal with projects halted by this pandemic. Musicians, producers, and engineers have mixed, mastered and released an abundance of music. Many of the titles have been, and will be covered by our ...

Pete Mills: The Anatomy Of A Jazz Release

Read "Pete Mills: The Anatomy Of A Jazz Release" reviewed by Mark Corroto


I'm here to tell you that everything you thought about the making of a modern jazz records is wrong. The notion that there are talent agents selling concepts to record companies—wrong. That bands work on tunes, perfecting them for months before entering the studio—wrong. That jazz musicians make money from records—again, wrong. I had ...

The Dude Abides

Read "The Dude Abides" reviewed by Mark Corroto


To paraphrase Jeffrey Lebowski, aka The Dude (or El Dudarino, if you are not into the brevity thing), “I've had a rough night, and I hate the fucking Grateful Dead, man." Actually, The Dude said the “Eagles" (and I guess I'm obliged to agree with him), but for me the Dead seem to always get under ...

Taking stock, a year half over

Read "Taking stock, a year half over" reviewed by Mark Corroto


This month, at the halfway point in the year of music, we are taking stock, and there have been so many great discs released. Here is my list (in no particular order) of the best albums so far. I predict many of these will make final top ten 2013 lists. Sorry, I couldn't keep my list ...

Art Strike!

Read "Art Strike!" reviewed by Mark Corroto


"Would you support an art strike?" That's the question I've been asking musicians for the past few months. “Will you agree to stop writing and performing music for one year?" In 1990 the London artists Stewart Home and Mark Pawson proposed that all artists cease to “make, exhibit, distribute, sell, or discuss their work" for three ...

Jazz: A Blessed Obsession

Read "Jazz: A Blessed Obsession" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Jazz listeners travel some strange and beautiful paths. It might have all begun with collectors trying to find a legendary Edison cylinder that New Orleans trumpeter Buddy Bolden--some believe to be the very first jazz musician--may (or may not) have recorded in 1904. Fast forward to modern times, a quick scan of eBay and the exorbitant ...

Before We Say Goodbye To 2012

Read "Before We Say Goodbye To 2012" reviewed by Mark Corroto


In consumer culture, where we are all guilty of looking for the next new thing, the emphasis is always on new releases, and what the next, best, super-improved product will be.

You say you're beat? You don't know Jack

Read "You say you're beat? You don't know Jack" reviewed by Mark Corroto


..."the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..." Jack ...
