Live From Birmingham: Alabama 3, Craobh Rua, Fanfare Ciocărlia & Wrangler

Read "Live From Birmingham: Alabama 3, Craobh Rua, Fanfare Ciocărlia & Wrangler" reviewed by

Alabama 3 The Robin March 18, 2015 Herald the hedonism! An Alabama 3 gig typically presents a rolling rock'n'roll party vibration, but adopts electronic practices, as well as being saturated in rootsy juices. Delta blues, dub, country, soul, gospel, hip hop and house are all pulped up in this anarchic collective's bloody sack of styles, and slung full-face into the assembled audience, who also appear to be drawn from a bewildering variety of ...

Dead Combo + Camané New Jersey Performing Arts Center Newark, NJ March 15, 2015 On their NJPAC debut, the Lisbon-based duo formed by Tó Trips and Pedro V. Gonçalves walked silently onto the stage as a short video introduction was played. They immediately launched into “Povo Que Cais Descalco," an instrumental based around acoustic and electric guitar, immediately following “Waiting For Nick," a tune filled with distortion and fast riffs. The duo ...

Stevie Wonder Pepsi Center Denver, CO March 17, 2015 Is there anybody that doesn't like Stevie Wonder? Go ahead, I dare you, tell me how you don't like Stevie Wonder. Then go chase those kids off your lawn. For the legion of Stevie Wonder fans, it's fortunate that he goes out on the road every once in a while; maybe not frequently, but occasionally is much better than nothing. On the current tour, ...

Cassandra Wilson at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts

Cassandra Wilson: “Coming Forth by Day, A Celebration of Billie Holiday" Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts Scottsdale, Arizona February 21, 2015 Vocalist Cassandra Wilson delivered a modern homage in honor of the anniversary of Billie Holiday's 100th birthday. Her performance neither replicated the late singer's sound nor did it adhere to the jazz mode of that long-past era. Instead, it was a re-characterization of the songs that made Holiday famous from 1935 to 1959. ...

Iiro Rantala Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane jny:Dublin March 8, 2015 There's a commonly held belief that anything that is free can't be worth a damn. Not so. Luckily, thanks to Dublin City Council, the Arts Council of Ireland and Improvised Music Company, spring in the Irish capital welcomes not only free music, but music out of the top drawer at that. Finnish pianist Iiro Rantala' solo piano concert at the Dublin ...

ZZ Top with special guests the Ben Miller Band NYCB Theatre at Westbury Westbury, NY March 15, 2015 Forty-plus years is a long time for anything. For a rock band it's an eternity. For ZZ Top, the Little Ol' Band From Texas, the past forty-some-odd years have been business as usual. The group had its genesis in jny: Houston, TX in 1969. Originally comprised of Billy Gibbons (guitar and vocals), organist Lanier ...

Jeff Sipe Trio at Independent Public Alehouse

Jeff Sipe Trio Featuring Mike Seal And Taylor Lee Independent Public Alehouse Greenville, SC March 5, 2015 The Jeff Sipe Trio began their set with a surprising cover version of Weather Report's “Black Market." Not a tune that could be easily rearranged for a guitar/bass/drums trio, but they made it sound like it was written for them. Starting with a selection any fusion fan would know is a great way to draw an audience ...

Live From Birmingham: Amy Roberts, Richard Exall, Bruce Coates, John Edwards, Mark Sanders, GoGo Penguin & Mammal Hands

Read "Live From Birmingham: Amy Roberts, Richard Exall, Bruce Coates, John Edwards, Mark Sanders, GoGo Penguin & Mammal Hands" reviewed by

The Amy Roberts/Richard Exall Jazz Band Solihull British Legion March 8, 2015 Shockingly, this regular club at Solihull British Legion, so accustomed to traditional New Orleans trotters, had booked a band that specialises in jazz from a slightly later time period. Precedents already existed, though, and the regulars have occasionally been sighted dancing to bebop and swing numbers. Of course, it's completely outrageous to ignore the fact that saxophonists such as Lester Young ...
