Dave King has been lauded as the firebrand drummer and co-composer behind the groundbreaking Bad Plus trio. His interest in various musical styles and situations has found him active in contemporary jazz, rock, electronic music and progressive improvisation based ensembles. But for all his divergent interests, King has remained a student and practitioner in the jazz drumming tradition. On his new Sunnyside record I’ve Been Ringing You, King realized his desire to create a modern jazz recording using straight ahead and avant-garde tendencies built off of the jazz tradition he has held so dear.

Label: Rockbeat Records | Release Year: 2015

The Rockbeat label continues it's releases of old broadcasts of rock/jazz/blues artists, and this Albert King set is worth a listen if you're a fan of his blues style. The sound is actually pretty decent–similar to other recent live sets from this label–a bit flat but every instrument can easily be heard. And like other releases from this label some songs fade out prematurely. As usual the booklet notes are nothing all that great, except for the cover painting of King, and the disc slips inside a slot in the cardboard package.

Drummer/composer/Bad Plus-er Dave King has become enamored with the concept of bridging the gap between American roots music and the avant-garde. He has created The Trucking Company as a palette for mixing both musical styles and superior musical talents not of the mainstream. As a matter of fact, the ensemble could be seen as the poster child for bands revolting against the academic lean of mainstream jazz, preferring a slant toward the corporeal.The Trucking Company's new recording Adopted Highway was recorded with earthy intentions.

Odd Soul came together over the course of six months, during which the members of MUTEMATH -Paul Meany (vocals/keyboards), Roy Mitchell-Cardenas (bass/guitar), and Darren King (drums) -locked themselves down at Meany's home studio in New Orleans and didn't emerge until they were ready to play it for others. "The idea of complete isolation was the only thing that appealed to us. No camera guys, no producers, no engineers, no record label people, no management. No one would hear or comment on what we were doing until we were done," Meany says. "We didn't want to make blurry music. We set out to record something that was unapologetically us."

There is a certain garage rock mentality to the music of drummer Dave King. Though it may be performed by what seems a jazz combo, his music still roots itself in the free and collective energy of rock. The Dave King Trucking Company is the latest incarnation in King’s pursuit of adventurous music that really grabs listeners. Best known for his groundbreaking work with the Bad Plus and Happy Apple, King has once again assembled an amazing group of musicians, including guitarist Erik Fratzke (Happy Apple), bassist Jason Lind (Fat Kid Wednesdays), and saxophonists Chris Speed (Tim Berne, Claudia Quintet) and Brandon Wozniak, for the group’s inaugural release, Good Old Light (Sunnyside, 2011).

Two years ago they told us the true story of the Saxons (“Wyrd Bið Ful Aræd – The History Of The Saxons“). Now they move back to classic literary realms. With their eighth studio album, “A Tragedy In Steel Part II: Shakespeare's King Lear” they take a turn to the work of the great English playwright of the 16th-17th century. So they are back where they started with the debut album “Shakespeare's Macbeth – A Tragedy In Steel” from the year 2002.

The largely unacknowledged open secret lying at the heart of Rick Springfield's career is how, at his core, he's a serious artist. His gift for power pop and his spell as a television actor obscured this essential fact, but on the many albums he's made since his popular peak during the early '80s, he regularly returns to sober subjects, which means most of his fans may not be surprised that he spends the bulk of his 2018 album The Snake King exploring depression, faith, political confusion, and other weighty ideas. Even so, he hits these subjects hard throughout The Snake King, his lyrical explicitness finding a match in a shift his music: He's moved from arena rock toward heavy blues and folk-rock anthems straight from Bob Dylan in 1965. Given that he's a fine guitarist and craftsman, this isn't quite as startling in sound as it is on paper.
