Billy Goodman with Steve Kimock - Big Red Barn Sessions CD - Billy Goodman's bluesy songs are helped out by the flawless guitar of Steve Kimock on this release! Distinctly American and fortuitously folky, these songs offer the perfect space for some beautiful acoustic and electric guitar work. Billy Goodman (guitar, vocals), Steve Kimock (guitar). Some tracks feature John Morgan Kimock (drums), Peter Fritz (bass), and Jim Kost (B3 organ). $14.00
Zach Gill - Stuff CD - Growing up in Saratoga, CA, Zach's since-high-school friendship with fellow musicians Dan Lebowitz and Steve Adams (aka LAG) had the trio playing Jazz, Power-Pop Rock, Bluegrass and everything in between. The group evolved into the Animal Liberation Orchestra in 1998. ALO has been Zach's primary musical vehicle over the last decade. This is Zach's first "solo" record, and from the moment you hear the opener, "Family," it's apparent that Gill is an effortlessly strong performer - one who knows how to craft and deliver easygoing pop with a large dose of buoyant soul. Think Leon Russell or Levon Helm if they grew up near the beach listening to Bob Marley. With unique instrumentation and a playful spirit, Zack Gill carries on a tradition of true musicians who revel in playing and creating. He's on a true musical journey that shows no sign of ending, and this album is simply an awesome glimpse inside the ride. $16.99
Supergenerous - Sao Paulo Slim CD - Bolstered by Cyro Baptista's inventive and surreal percussion and composition madness, Supergenerous doles out, um, generous portions of musical eclecticism by way of traditional songs, Brazilian influences, jazz telepathy, and satisfying rock weirdness. With special guest vocal help from Cassandra Wilson and Sue Patrick Breit, this album's songs come alive with a trippy tropical intensity that is nearly indescribable! Supergenerous is: Kevin Breit (guitar), Cyro Baptista (percussion), and Ian de Souza (bass). See our Video of the Week for a taste! $12.00
Johnny Neel & Criminal Element - Vol. 2 CD - This is the real deal right here - uncut, un-screwed-with funk and fusion jams from keyboardist Johnny Neel and his band! These guys lay the improvisational jazz-funk blues and soul grease on thick for their second release. Criminal Element always sounds fresh yet timeless in its richness and soul. $10.00
