From the area around Memphis comes the black and blind musicians Morris Cummings, who here - accompanied by a loud and gruff therefore coming white band - his debut submit. The whole thing sounds a bit strange, since both his singing style and his Harptechnik are quite rudimentary. Not bad / debut from the blind singer and harp player with did rough voice and simple, powerful harmonica style. He's backed by a pretty good, loud and rough playin 'ribbon.
Robert Ealey is no spring chicken. After singing in local Texas bands for years, he finally started recording in the '90s – I Like Music When I Party was the fourth album he cut after starting his recording career. Like the others, it's a greasy colleciton of Texas blues, spiked with a bit of soul. Ealey's voice may be gravelly with age, but it's by no means gone, and with the support of his youthful backing band, he can really bring it home. There's nothing deep here – just party music, played good and simple. Sometimes, that's enough.
These days, every band seems eager to honor the anniversary of one of its landmark albums, usually in the form of a concert tour or an expanded reissue, and even Yo La Tengo have gotten into the act – a quarter century after they released their endlessly charming 1990 LP Fakebook, in which they covered a handful of their favorite songs and reworked a few of their own numbers in semi-acoustic fashion, YLT have recorded what amounts to a sequel, 2015's Stuff Like That There. Just like a sequel to a 1980s horror movie, Stuff Like That There follows the template of the original as closely as possible – there are two new songs, three remakes from the YLT back catalog, and nine covers, which range from the instantly recognizable (Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," inspired by Al Green's version) to the thoroughly obscure (unless you're a Hoboken pop obsessive or a James McNew completist, "Automatic Doom" by the Special Pillows is probably not on your hit parade).
"I Go Wild" is a song by The Rolling Stones featured on their 1994 album Voodoo Lounge. Credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, "I Go Wild" is largely a Jagger composition…
I LIKE TO SLEEP are a young and energetic free jazz trio based in Trondheim. The trio were brought together by a common interest in modern jazz language, free improvisation and 70s jazz-rock. The product of these musical influences can now be experienced through the unique combination of vibraphone, baritone guitar and drums. They specialise in heavy riffs, extensive improvisation pushed to its limits, and well-written melodies a style labelled Powerjazz.
