After featuring earlier pieces on the late Paul Desmond [1924-1977] on these pages that focused mainly on the writings of the eminent Jazz author, Doug Ramsey, a long-time friend of Paul’s, the editorial staff at JazzProfiles thought that Paul’s memory had been well-served.

That is until we found the following essay simply entitled “Paul” in the September, 1983 edition of Gene Lees’ JazzLetter.

Desmond-by-Lees is just too good to pass up, especially since Gene’s narrative emphasizes developments in Paul’s career after the classic Dave Brubeck Quartet disbanded in...

“Grimes is the musical and visual project of Claire Boucher. A lot of people have become aware of her music through her single “Oblivion” off of her most recent album Visions. Her music is a mix of electronic and pop. She’s got some really interesting beats that create a dynamic contrast to her very soft airy voice. Her latest single “Go” has been the only song that has been “professionally” produced and mastered! She did the work for all of her last albums herself, of which two are up on her Bandcamp for free! Boucher is still a pretty underrated musician I think despite playing some big...

90’ların kabına sığmaz kadın rock grubu Sleater-Kinney dediğim anda, grubun bir on yıldan fazla zamandır uğraştığı idealleri yerle bir etmiş oluyorum. Neredeyse tamamen erkekler tarafından domine edilmiş bir müzik sahnesi olan rock, kadınları hep bir budak olarak gördü ve hiçbir zaman gövdesinde yer vermedi. Yüzlerce rock grubundan bahsederken hiçbir zaman ‘erkek rock grubu’ demiyoruz. Kimse erkek rock grubu Rolling Stones demedi. Kalkın ve erkek rock grubu Foo Fighters için akciğer...

Sent my way from the ever reliable Stefano Gottardi, "Thirteenth Hell Level" is a 10-track release from Italian hard & heavy outfit T.H.L. Featuring eight original compositions and two choice cover songs in the from of "Born To Be Wild" (Steppenwolf) and "Honky Tonk Woman" (The Rolling Stones), "Thirteenth Hell Level" is also this band's full-length debut album. And it's a recommended one at that! Formed in 2010, T.H.L. (Thirteenth Hell Level) is a five-piece band whose influences range from Alice Cooper to Metallica (by way of Dokken, Skid Row, Poison and Dangerous Toys!)...

Happy Record Store Day Everybody!!

For this edition of BBR I’m gonna share with y’all what some amazing friends gave me last night for Mein Geburtstag.

Amazing friends indeed, that’s Rage Against the Machine’s self-titled album (XX edition), Jack DeJohnette’s Pictures, Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers (with zipper action), and The Great Adventures of Slick Rick! I mean does it get much better than that? ….. No, it doesn’t.

So for today’s featured album I’m sticking with another hip-hop classic, “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick!”

Tonight we’re blowing up the great GREY EAGLE...

En menos de dos años, MOURN pasó de ser uno de los secretos mejor guardados de Barcelona a irse de gira por el mundo. Grabaron su primer disco en vivo en el estudio, sin sobregrabaciones, y consiguieron un contrato de distribución en los Estados Unidos. Al poco tiempo, Pitchfork comenzó a hablar de ellos y ahí fue cuando comenzaron a volar más alto de lo que quizás hubieran pensado cuando empezaron. Hablamos con Carla Pérez (guitarra/voz), Jazz Rodríguez (guitarra/voz) y Antonio Postius (batería) fuera de The Echo en Los Angeles, antes de su primera presentación en esta ciudad.

Al entrevistarlas,...

Acaba de ganarse el premio al Compositor Latino del Año en los Premios BMI 2015 a la Música Latina por escribir cinco de los temas más sonados del año, incluyendo “Cero a la Izquierda,” “Hermosa Experiencia,” “Mi Niña Traviesa,” “Mi Razón de Ser,” y “Mi Segunda Vida.” Por otra parte, el nativo de Sinaloa, México está poniéndole los ultimos toques a su nueva producción discográfica Vivencias Propias y Ajenas, el mismo que se estrena este mes.

There is no doubt that we love Alabama Shakes here at The Revue. Pretty much all of us were captivated from the very first time we heard them, and they’ve organically grown into a powerhouse of a band despite just one full-length under their belt. We love them so much that we included them as one of our headliners at our made up music festival, The RevueFest (it’ll happen one day!).

With their official second full length being released next week, does Sound & Color surpass 2012’s Boys & Girls? We Take a Listen and...

About a year and a half after the last time she was here, Neko Case kicking off a spring tour in Vancouver, returning to the Vogue Theatre.

Due to a bit of a slow moving line outside the Vogue, I got in the theatre a few songs into the opener, Alialujah Choir. I immediately -- and correctly -- guessed that the sharp-dressed, six piece band was from Portland; their rich, folk-rock sounds, bolstered by a whole compliment of instruments ranging from keys to stand up bass to slide guitar. They even utilized a theremin for a small section on of the the...

Brett Morgen’s Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is shaping up to be one of the year’s biggest music documentaries, and last night the film finally made its New York premiere at the Tribeca Film Fest. With it came Courtney Love. In a candid conversation following the film, Love, Morgen, and Rolling Stone contributing editor Neil Strauss discussed the film’s unprecedented access, unconventional use of mixed media from Cobain’s personal archives, and intimacy… in the form of a long-lost Kurt and Courtney sex tape the couple tried to record...

There’s a difference between tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). To really boil it down, THC is the compound in cannabis that’s typically associated with the “high” of smoking (or ingesting or whatever else you’re doing) marijuana. CBD is actually gaining more and more clout as a natural medicinal way to help with poor blood circulation, nausea, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease, cancer and seizures.

CBD, unlike THC, is not known to have psychoactive properties and it’s CBD that Brandon Hamm and the team at Green Halo in Tucson are infusing in treats of all kinds to help patients medicate with flavor. As...

BLESSING A CURSE NEW VIDEO

Orlando hard rock act Blessing A Curse has released a music video for their song “Down The Rabbit Hole”. The plot follows a murderous villain whose face is concealed by a creepy bunny mask and ends with quite a twist. The video originally premiered with Revolver.

Vocalist Joshy Singer said, “The song itself is about me rejoining Blessing a Curse after parting ways with the band for a year and struggling with depression after my dad passed away. The video symbolizes how sometimes you have to fight your toughest battles on your own in order to find...
