Stanton Moore - Conversations CD / LP - The New Orleans native called on a pair of veterans from that city's vibrant, deeply rooted jazz scene to form his new trio. Pianist David Torkanowksy and bassist James Singleton have both played with saxophonist Tony Dagradi's long-running band Astral Project alongside Moore's mentor, drummer Johnny Vidacovich. Singleton has also worked with the likes of James Booker, Professor Longhair, Aaron Neville, Joe Henderson, Milt Jackson, Harry Connick Jr. and Lightnin' Hopkins. Torkanowsky's credits include work with The Meters, Maceo Parker, Dianne Reeves, Dr. John, Boz Scaggs, George Duke, Kirk Whalum, James Moody and Chuck Berry.
Medeski Martin & Wood + Nels Cline - The Woodstock Sessions Vol 2 CD- Medeski Martin & Wood + Nels Cline have announced the release of The Woodstock Sessions (Vol. 2) on April 22. The four musicians came together to record on August 27, 2013 at Applehead Studios in Woodstock, NY in front of an intimate gathering of 75 lucky ticket holders. The session was part of a newly launched series that brings established and emerging recording artists together with their fans in the recording studio. The experience is a performance/session hybrid that supports the artist to fan bond by sharing the process of record making. The end results are inimitable recordings that capture inspired, one-off performances.
Heard in its entirety, The Woodstock Sessions (Vol. 2) presents some of the most imaginative playing ever documented in the vast discographies of either Medeski Martin & Wood or Nels Cline. “MMW has no leader. When we play, there is an unspoken rule that requires each of us to sometimes lead and sometimes follow. As an outsider, it’s hard to join this kind of democracy without altering it,” concludes Chris Wood. “With Nels Cline it’s different. He instantly became a citizen of our twisted democracy and elevated it to a higher realm.”
Quicksilver Messenger Service - Hawaii 1970 (2 CDs) - Quicksilver Messenger Service are a legendary ensemble, an American psychedelic rock band formed in 1965 in San Francisco, together with Jefferson Starship and The Grateful Dead, they are considered one of the leading acts on the city's psychedelic scene in the mid-to-late 1960s.
Ziggy Marley - Fly Rasta CD - The 5th solo studio album from 5 time Grammy winning artist Ziggy Marley, Life on Mars explores crisis on a deteriorating earth and the ultimate migration of the human race. This conceptual album is a cry for humans to come together and make our planet a better place before there is no point of return. Many goodwill partnerships will be created out of this project, all in an effort for people to connect with one another in a positive way and give back to their fellow humans.
Alan Evans Trio - Woodstock Sessions Vol 1 CD - "The recording of the Woodstock Sessions was like a family barbeque, a show and a recording session rolled up into one day. Everyone who joined us there made every second of what you hear (and don't hear) a very special experience. We all showed up, talked, laughed, ate food and drank with each other. As the sun went down, we piled into the live room and started. Everyone knew something special was happening with every note that was played and before you knew it, we were under the stars hanging out again. No overdubs, no second takes. Just a wonderfully unique moment in time captured by and with some wonderfully unique people." - Alan Evans
The Allman Brothers Band - 40th Anniversary Live at the Beacon Theatre DVD - By 2009, the Allman Brothers Band had morphed into a line-up that consisted of Gregg, Jaimoe and Butch, guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, bassist Oteil Burbridge and Marc Quinones on percussion. In tune with each other musically, philosophically and personally, these players were hitting on all cylinders as they prepared to mark the band s 40th anniversary with a no-holds-barred celebration during the group s annual stand at the historic Beacon Theatre in New York City. This rustic venue had become a favored spot for the ABB to play in Manhattan, in the tradition of the Fillmore East. This 15-show run was dedicated to the memory of Duane Allman, and accordingly, some very special guests came out to pay homage to the man known as 'Skydog'. Sixty-two artists, including Eric Clapton, Levon Helm, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, and Buddy Guy were there, with someone of note sitting in during every show, except on one night. March 26, 2009, marked the exact 40th anniversary of the first time Duane, Gregg, Jaimoe, Butch, Berry and Dickey played together, and so this performance belonged to the Allman Brothers Band, and no one else.
The Infamous Stringdusters - Let it Go CD - The new album will be a milestone for the group – Andy Hall (Dobro), Andy Falco (guitar), Chris Pandolfi (banjo), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle) and Travis Book (upright bass) - that showcases their eight-year evolution from IBMA Award-winning bluegrass torchbearers to multi-dimensional string explorers, mixing tight song craft and a flare for improvisation. It’s acoustic music with nods to tradition, but as the New York Times said when describing the band: “genre doesn’t hold them back. The Infamous Stringdusters don’t leave bluegrass behind; they’re stretching it from within.”
Nickel Creek - A Dotted Line CD- The Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum selling trio Nickel Creek Chris Thile (mandolin/vocals), Sara Watkins (fiddle/vocals), and Sean Watkins (guitar/vocals) officially reunites for the first time since its 2007 self-described "indefinite hiatus" with the album A Dotted Line, followed by a tour of the US in support of the Eric Valentine-produced album, which includes the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass and Newport Folk Festivals.
Mike Dillon - Band of Outsiders CD -How many artists can claim being praised a "punk rock provocateur," "jazz vibraphone visionary" and "percussion virtuoso" in the same sentence? There's only one: Mike Dillon. Whether through his affiliation with artists like Les Claypool, Brave Combo and Ani DiFranco, collaborations such as Garage A Trois, The Dead Kenny Gs and Critters Buggin or bands he's fronted, including Billy Goat and Hairy Apes BMX, the Texas-native has set his own standard for 25 years now.
