THE JAYHAWKS – MOCKINGBIRD TIME

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

THE JAYHAWKS –...

During their heyday in the first half of the 1990s, The Jayhawks perfected a captivating sound that seamlessly blended the elegant folk-rock of The Byrds, the adventurousness of Buffalo Springfield, the hippiebilly soulfulness of The Flying Burrito Brothers, and the soaring harmonies of The Beach Boys. So it’s richly ironic that their reappearance coincides with a dramatic resurgence of the musical approach they played such a central role in perpetuating—but this time around, The Jayhawks themselves are revered as icons by the young bands carrying on those same traditions, and it’s their own legacy that they’re advancing. On Mockingbird Time, their eighth album, and the first with the original lineup since 1995’s Tomorrow The Green Grass, they’re once again pushing the envelope in songs and performances of rarefied dynamism and grace. The album’s shapes and textures range from the string-laden grandeur of “Hide Your Colors” and the widescreen vistas of “Tiny ...

SOPHIE MILMAN – IN THE...

THIEVERY CORPORATION –...

Get the full Thievery live show feeling without having to leave the comfort of your home. Their first ever live concert DVD is now available. In January of 2010, Thievery Corporation thrilled fans when they sold out 5 consecutive nights at local DC venue, 9:30 Club. The shows were filmed with vintage anamorphic lenses that created flaws and subtle characteristics (including creating flares as the light hits the lens), and have an otherworldly and abstract visual quality. The result is an intimate account of the band and a dazzling recording of one of the world’s most unique musical stage-shows.

ERIC CLAPTON & WYNTON...

New York City‟s premier jazz venue got the blues last April when Wynton Marsalis and Eric Clapton performed together in Rose Theater at Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz At Lincoln Center for two sold-out shows dedicated to vintage blues. The extraordinary collaboration, billed as Wynton Marsalis & Eric Clapton Play The Blues, paired these musical virtuosos with members of the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra as they brought to life a repertoire of songs selected by Clapton and arranged by Marsalis. Reprise Records captures the magic of these unprecedented shows from earlier this year on CD, and as a CD/DVD combo, that both feature selections taken from the two public concerts (April 8-9), as well as special performance of Jazz At Lincoln Center‟s annual gala (April 7). The band nimbly navigated a diverse set list that touched on different styles, from the four-on-the-floor swing of Louis Armstrong‟s “Ice Cream” and ...
