Trey Anastasio Band - TAB at the TAB CD - The septet that comprises the latest fiery incarnation of Trey Anastasio Band mixes the new and the old in both band members and repertoire. Original TAB members Russ Lawton (drums), Tony Markellis (bass) and Ray Paczkowski (keys) are joined by horn section Jennifer Hartswick (trumpet and vocals), Russell Remington (tenor saxophone and flute), and newcomer Natalie Cressman (trombone and vocals). Recorded live at the legendary Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA, this set runs through such classics as a ripping 'Sand' and a sweetly sung 'Drifting' and pairs them with new TAB compositions including 'Show of Life' (co-written with Steve 'Dude of Life' Pollack) and a horn laden arrangement of Phish's 'Alaska'. TAB at the Tab ends on a high note with Jennifer Hartwick's killer trumpet chops on a raucous cover of Zeppelin's 'Black Dog.'

'You Get What You Give' features a genre-defying collection of songs that the band has been testing on the road over the past year.
The Giving Tree Band - The Joke, The Threat, The Obvious CD - If you ask Todd and Eric Fink of The Giving Tree Band how much time they spend making music, your voice will not be heard above the din of their banjo and guitar, respectively. For the Brothers Fink, there is no distinction between playing music and just plain living. No two days are ever the same, as every new moment is their most creative. Their bodies and instruments become a singularity that is just trying to get in tune, stay in tune, and add a little harmony to the grand symphony of life.
Johnny Winter - Beginnings 1960-67 (2 CD) - These are the earliest recordings of blues guitarist Johnny Winter recorded in the '60s before he was signed by Columbia in 1968. These sides were recorded between 1960 and 1967 for the Dart, KCRO, Frolic, Todd, Hall-Way, and Pacemaker labels -- in other words, virtually his entire recorded output prior to his Progressive Blues Experiment long-player in 1967. The music here is raw electric blues, R&B, and even a few early rock tunes thrown into the mix. The cover of Johnny "Guitar" Watson's "Broke and Lonely" is a highlight, as is the burning instrumental cover of Chuck Berry's "Reelin' and Rockin." "Ease My Pain" is a primitive but fantastic model for what was to come in the late '60s on Columbia. A few tunes, such as "Eternally" and "You'll Be the Death of Me," were originally issued by Frolic, but picked up by Atlantic for national distribution. "Gone for Bad" and "I Had to Cry" were issued on MGM. Neither single charted; Winter was dropped. These tunes are a fine document, a lost highway to the past. Given the role Winter played in the electric blues and its mass acceptance in America, these tunes serve not as some inferior or embarrassing document, but the thing itself, raw and undiluted. Most of the material is comprised of doo wop, R&B, and twist instrumentals, all gritty enough not to be relegated as generic after the first listen.

Cas Haley - Connection CD - With his debut album selling over 30,000 copies without major distribution or marketing, Cas Haley retreated to his home in Paris, Texas, to create a timeless album of reggae-pop songs filled with chill grooves and irresistible melodies. His crystalline voice and funky, easygoing beats earned Cas a second-place finish on America's Got Talent, which in turn netted him a measure of fame and a following. But the contest also locked the Texan singer/songwriter into a major label deal that didn't feel right. So, not wanting to be turned into a manufactured product, he struck out on his own. The superb result: Connection, a collection of songs basking in the musical maturity that comes from staying true to his artistic vision.
