Martin Taylor & Linn Records - Visions of Stephane Grappelli

Read "Martin Taylor & Linn Records - Visions of Stephane Grappelli" reviewed by

The British audiophile record label Linn has a sub-imprint called Echo. This imprint is dedicated to the re-release of older label titles. It is from this considerable loam of music that these two Martin Taylor releases are gleaned, both hosting appearances by violinist Stephane Grappelli from the mid-1990s. Martin Taylor & Spirit of Django with Stephane Grappelli Years Apart Linn Records 1996/2015 The Spirit of Django was ...

B.B. King: Live in Cook County Jail and More…

Read "B.B. King: Live in Cook County Jail and More…" reviewed by

In his ALLMUSIC artist's biography of B.B. King, Bill Dahl states, “Universally hailed as the king of the blues, the legendary B.B. King was without a doubt the single most important electric guitarist of the last half of the 20th century." That is hyperbole of the order of Stephen Thomas Erlewine's introduction in the same publication to Johnny Cash as, ..."one of the most imposing and influential figures in post-World War II country music." Of course, neither statement is hyperbole ...

Johnny Winter And Live

Read "Johnny Winter And Live" reviewed by

Johnny Winter And Johnny Winter And Live Columbia 1971 There is no other live rock and roll disc that is both so wrong and so perfect at the same time. Johnny Winter led a power trio in the early 1970s supplemented by guitarist Rick Derringer (who later broke through with the Derringer original “Rock and roll Hoochie-Coo" which Winter had also recorded). This particular live recording, Johnny Winter And Live smacks ...

His Master’s Voice: Joanna Pascale & Thana Alexa

Read "His Master’s Voice: Joanna Pascale & Thana Alexa" reviewed by

“Ahab beckons from the side of the whale..." I have had the pleasure to work with a most benevolent Publisher in Michael Ricci for 20 years. His editorial hand has always been liberal and indulging. It is a very rare thing that he would ask me to listen to something that has been ringing his bell. So rare, that when it happens, my ears perk up and I stand at attention. Michael's taste has always been exceptional ...

From the Keyboard: Scarlatti, Glass, & Aho

Read "From the Keyboard: Scarlatti, Glass, & Aho" reviewed by

The keyboard repertoire will never grow stale or cliche. These three composers and their interpreters will see to that. Duanduan Hao Domenico Scarlatti: Complete Keyboard Sonatas Vol.16 Naxos 2015 Naxos began their Scarlatti Sonata Cycle with the release of Volume 1 in 1999 with pianist Eteri Andjaparidze at the helm.

Year of the Mule - Gov't Mule and the Future Past

Read "Year of the Mule - Gov't Mule and the Future Past" reviewed by

What has previously been relegated to Gov't Mule's live downloads have now been released on CD and LP. But first, a little back ground. Gov't Mule adopted a concert practice of Phish, who began (approximately) yearly coverage of a famous “classic" rock album in concert, typically on Halloween. Phish began this practice in 1994 with The Beatles' White Album (Apple, 1968). Gov't Mule began their similar tradition on Halloween and/or New Year's Eve with a covers from ...

"The past is never dead. It's not even past." --William Faulkner, Requiem for a Nun Ghost Town Blues Band Hard Road to Hoe Self Produced 2015 Memphis, Tennessee: The American South's conflicted Mecca. For its size and location, Memphis should be much more than it is. At the very least, it should be the rightful home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Cleveland? The reason? Cleveland was ...

Classical Boxes: Harnoncort’s Strauss & Bostridges’ Schubert

Read "Classical Boxes: Harnoncort’s Strauss & Bostridges’ Schubert" reviewed by

With the traditional music industry in shambles, the larger labels are repackaging their deep catalogs as never before, releasing well-conceived box sets that are modestly priced for the amount of music offered. Here are two from Warner Classics that make me want to yell, “Yeehaw!" (In the southern classical music vernacular, that is.) Nikolaus Harnoncourt Johann Strauss II Warner Classics 2014 When considering Austrian period-performance conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt, ...
