Concert Review: "Kneebody"

Sep 30, 2018

Ambient. Ethereal. Haunting. Dissonant. Dreamy.

Live at Dazzle playing cuts from their newest album “Anti-Hero,” Kneebody transcends and melds genres simultaneously, incorporating elements of Funk, Hip-Hop, Soul and even a dash of Metal at times.

Each measure of music is a whirlwind of sonic texture, overtaking the bodily sense, transporting the audience to a place otherworldly.

Book Review: Robbie Robertson’s “Testimony”

Sep 29, 2018

Robbie Robertson had a music band while growing up on the Six Nations Indian Reserve in Canada, but he owes his professional music origins to two guys playing rockabilly and blues covers in the Arkansas Delta region. At age fifteen, Robertson gave two songs he had written to Ronnie Hawkins and the Hawks after his band had opened for a Hawks performance in Canada. Returning to Arkansas, Hawkins recorded these songs for a new album. Hawkins invited his young composer/guitarist discovery to Fayetteville for a crash course in rockabilly guitar playing.

Rocky Mountain International Audio Fest | Oct 5-7

Sep 29, 2018

What is RMAF? The 15th Annual Rocky Mountain International Audio Fest (RMAF) is the largest consumer audio and home entertainment show in the United States. Simply put: “mega stereo systems!” Denver’s own audio wonderland now features over 160 exhibit spaces representing more than 400 companies from North and South America, Europe, Australia, and Asia.

This week’s Vinyl Vault, fundraiser addition, will be Pat Metheny’s 1984 album “Rejoicing” released on ECM records. Heavily influenced by Ornette Coleman, it not only features three Coleman compositions, but also Coleman’s rhythm section in bassist Charlie Haden and drummer Billy Higgins. Metheny wrote several tunes on the album, Haden wrote one and the album kicks off with a Horace Silver composition. The players are highly compatible and sympathetic and the trio format gives Metheny plenty of room for his unique solos.

Book Review: A Welcome Murder

Sep 25, 2018
amazon.com

It’s often said when it comes to literature, that spinning a good yarn can best be done when one writes about “the other”. The "other" being out of the ordinary human beings grasping by their fingernails at the very fringes of life.  Losers, stooges, lowlifes, users, manipulators and narcissists, these are the characters known in literature as “the other”.
