A collection of pixelated memories from those North Coast halcyon days of yore, Sandstoned features the standard Church of Hed mixture of spacerock, prog, and electronic music. Some tracks are quite catchy, but don’t worry, esoteric music still abounds. Quarkspace’s Stan Lyon makes an appearance on guitar and bass — in some cases, with his e-Bow in tow. The musical influences of the album run the gamut of CAN, The Orb, John Bonham, Talking Heads, Cluster, Brian Eno, and so much more. An 80s vibe naturally lurks, but with the typical forward-looking focus of Church of Hed. Not that that guarantees looking in the right spots!

“That A Jazz Tribute to ABBA turned out to be so extraordinary excellent is a result of the studious, professional and creative way Nijland and her band arranged the songs.” “Chapeau for this very original musical production!” “Nijland pulls it off, making “Waterloo,” “Head Over Heels,” and “Dancing Queen” sound fresh and new. Danny van Kessel proves the ideal catalyst to Nijland overt musicality. His playing is sparkling and sharp, directing the course for Nijland.” “Judith Nijland’s sophisticated ability to interpret and the striking performance of her band (…) always keep it interesting and not only shed a new light on ABBA’s work but also peek further interest in Judith Nijland’s future material.”

Recorded against a backdrop of political division and dread, Love in Wartime, the 2018 release from Americana darlings Birds of Chicago, is a rock'n'soul suite under the influence of the epic music generated by artists of the '60’s and '70’s. Love is the through-line. "Any act of love is an act of bravery," says Allison Russell. "These songs are fragments of covenants of trust and understanding. We want to give people some good news. And we want them to be able to dance when they hear it."

Saxophonist Hans Teuber and bassist Jeff Johnson began their musical association in 1990 when their paths intersected in Seattle. Both had recently arrived and they soon discovered the chemistry between them was substantial and uncanny. Performing together on all five of Johnson's recordings on Origin Records and on hundreds of performances, recordings and concerts over the last 25 years, their musical collaboration is highly intuitive and empathetic. Both diligently mentored in their teens by veteran jazz musicians, while simultaneously playing in a wide variety of musical situations, they each bring a rich palette of influences to their performances. From free improvisations to jazz standards, it's all touched upon here somewhere, in the moment, completely natural, conversational and without pretension.

Big Harp George continues his crusade to revolutionize the blues and bring the genre roaring forward into the twenty-first century. To start with the obvious: no one but George has ever featured the chromatic harmonica or "big harp" as a primary instrument; all others have, instead, employed the smaller diatonic harmonica, resorting to the chromatic only sparingly. In George's hands, the chromatic is a beguiling new voice, with fresh colorations and moods that range from dark and despairing to soaring and elegant. Meanwhile, George's songwriting is pathbreaking in its ambition.

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Southbound I-95, from JP Soars and it's really cool. Opening with Ain't No Dania Beach, there's a country flavor but still folky/rock along the lines of the Band…you know…just right. Joined by Travis Colby on organ, Paul DesLauries on ultra cool slide, Greg Morency on bass, and Sam Harrison on percussion, this is a stylin' opener. Swamp funky, Sure As Hell Ain't Foolin' Me, is a great track with a solid bass line and vocal delivery by Soars. His guitar playing is really nice as well, backed by Teresa James on vocals, Oscar Santiago on percussion and Scott Ankrom on trumpet, this is my favorite track on the release.

"La mer, la mer, toujours recommencėe” — Paul Valéry, Le cimetière marin. The sea, the sea. The journey, the waves. The swell of the tide, the motion of drift. Time folds back on itself and recommences again, ever changing, ever anew. We catch our breath and steer ahead towards a suggestion of lines on the horizon. Eastbound to where the sun rises, to where the tide caresses island shores, where acres of green stretch ahead. Landfall is nigh, we may alight soon.
