Gov't Mule with John Scofield at the Ogden Theatre

Read "Gov't Mule with John Scofield at the Ogden Theatre" reviewed by

Gov't Mule with John Scofield Ogden Theatre Denver, CO February 24, 2015 A jazz guy plays with a heavy rock band? That would be the superficial description of Sco-Mule. A deeper examination shows that John Scofield and Gov't Mule's Warren Haynes are twin brothers of different mothers. Each possesses a yearning, restless soul, constantly seeking new musical forms and combinations. Each is fearless behind his guitar. And each is possessed of a virtuoso talent and, ...

Take Five UK Edition X Bore Place Kent, England February 9 -14, 2015 Nestled in the heart of the Kent countryside is Bore Place, an organic farm that dates to the seventeenth century. Here, the mobile phone signal is unreliable and internet connection is dickey at best. The only sound is the tenor and baritone lowing of cows. It's the perfect place to plonk eight young jazz/improvising musicians for a week. The ...

Tierney Sutton Band at Jazz Standard

Read "Tierney Sutton Band at Jazz Standard" reviewed by

Tierney Sutton Band Jazz Standard New York, NY February 19, 2015 In jazz circles, educated and experienced listeners often steer clear of first nights and opening sets of multi-night engagements. They rigidly adhere to that maxim about bands--be it an ad hoc formation or a working band--being a bit rusty or out of sync when a run begins. And while that's often the case, it's not a given. Some groups simply operate at such ...

Pamela Rose Tribute To Etta James California Jazz Conservatory Berkeley CA February 6, 2015 Pamela Rose's tribute to Etta James was a stirring live concert/talk/multimedia celebration of the life and career of the legendary soul, R&B, rock, gospel, and jazz artist. The set was interspersed with discussions of James' life experiences, house sing-a longs, and video clips that established context and acted as preludes to the next track.

FForeigner NYCB Theatre at Westbury Westbury, NY February 12, 2015 Foreigner was formed in 1976 by guitarist Mick Jones, multi-instrumentalist Ian McDonald, a former founding member of King Crimson, and vocalist Lou Gramm. Legend has it that Jones gave the band its name because he, McDonald and drummer Dennis Elliott were English, while Gramm, Al Greenwood (keyboards) and bassist Ed Gagliardi were from the States. The story goes that no matter what ...

Read "Live From Old York: Patsy Reid, Clare Hammond & Ruth Keggin" reviewed by

The Patsy Reid Band The Black Swan February 12, 2015 Scottish fiddler Patsy Reid forged her reputation as a co-founder of Breabach, but took her leave from this thriving folk combo in 2011. Now, she's leading her own new-ish small outfit, deliberately treading the familiar furrow of the traditional folk circuit, keeping it intimate for this well-filled upstairs gig at The Black Swan. Even though this weekly club will regularly play host to ...

Read "The Julian Lage Trio at Richmond Congregational Church" reviewed by

The Julian Lage Trio Congregational Church Richmond, Vermont February 15, 2015 Striding from the vestibule to the stage of this tiny house of worship, The Julian Lage Trio were afforded a hearty round of applause, which was just a precursor to further acclamation in the form of whoops and hollers that became increasingly frequent during the course of their single ninety-minute set. But a mutual admiration arose between performers and audience during the ...
