"I'm with Steve but with over a dozen versions of "Shoot Out The Lights" in my library I'm gonna have to pass and spend my cash on some new tunes/new artist."

"I've seen Thompson perform many times, both with his band and solo acoustic. Never seen a concert that was less than stellar, but I have a soft spot for his acoustic performances. They always let the nuance of his writing and guitar mastery…"

Richard Thompson - Acoustic Classics (Album Review)

There's probably a bit of intentional irony in Richard Thompson's latest offering: a year after Electric, he gives us Acoustic Classics.If the British balladeer  is trying to say "I can do anything", he is pretty successful. Acoustic is a haunting, accomplished piece of work that reminds listeners of Thompson's superb songwriting and much-heralded guitar work (listed in Rolling Stone's top 100 just above Jack White and just below John McLaughlin).There is nothing that is actually new on the…See More

Wynton Marsalis Trumpets Youth, Musical Diversity and Some Roots of Jazz

The solo played by U.S. jazzman Wynton Marsalis to close his now-annual residency at London's Barbican in early July  was a rare personal moment in what was otherwise a master class in sharing the limelight.In lieu of a full-fledged encore with his 14-strong Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO), Marsalis entertained with a small combo, delighting an already bouncing crowd with swooping scales of trumpet.But for much of the time over the three nights, Marsalis allowed his band and guests to…See More

""There is a bit of ageism in this business. Radio, in particular, is not really interested in new material from old bands…."I would counter that argument with two words:  Tom. Petty. "

Playing What People Want with the Eagles

When veteran California rock band the Eagles hit the stage in London on June 21, there was no pretence about why people had come to see them or what the band was expected to do. It was a case of play the songs we know, dudes, and please don't change anything.So, a lively run-through of "Hotel California", "Tequila Sunrise", "Take it Easy", "Witchy Woman", "Life In The Fast Lane", "Desperado", "Take It To The Limit", and more than three hours of other Eagles standards went down a storm with a…See More

Talking Blues With John Mayall at 80

Blues songs are traditionally about women who have done you wrong, working on a chain gang, or being brought low by booze; but what about Christians and Muslims killing each other?John Mayall, often dubbed the "godfather" of British electric blues, touches on just this in "World Gone Crazy", a track on a retrospective album of newly recorded songs he is putting out this month to celebrate turning 80 last year.To a driving beat, wailing harmonica and decidedly blues-chord progression, he sings…See More
