Jim Hall's third CD for Musicmasters is the usual excellent mix of well-crafted originals and thoughtfully-arranged standards that one has come to expect from the veteran guitarist. It also marks the addition of young keyboardist Larry Goldings and the recording debut of a promising young Danish tenor saxophonist Rasmus Lee. The leader's "Subsequently" is an immediately infectious song that kicks off the release, while "Pancho" is a captivating bossa nova with a few twists thrown in, and "Waiting to Dance" is a brisk waltz that has a few detours into post-bop. Hall's also covers his wife's tasty composition "The Answer Is Yes" once again. Standard fare includes a gracefully swinging "I'm in the Mood for Love" and a foot-tapping "More Than You Know"; harmonica player Toots Thielemans is a special guest on his own upbeat "Waltz for Sonny." With the demise of Musicmasters, this highly recommended CD could soon turn into a hard to find collectable.
AC/DC wasn't the only great Australian hard-rock band to come out of the '70s; Rose Tattoo's blues-based heavier-than-thou sound made them legends down under, even if they never broke out in America like their aforementioned countrymen. PAIN finds the band hitting it harder than ever 25 years into their career. Singer Angry Anderson and slide-guitar demon Peter Wells still front the band as they pound through blistering tunes teeming with full-throttle vocals and explosive guitar licks. Imagine AC/DC if they dropped the schoolboy humor and got really ticked off, and you'll have a fair idea about the sound of PAIN. First studio album in 17 years for Aussie hard rock act. 16 tracks, highlights include 'Black Magic', 'House Of Pain', 'Satan's Eyes' & 'Illustrated Man'. Steamhammer Records. 2002. Recorded at Karo Studio, Brachel, Germany. Personnel: Angry Anderson (vocals); Peter Wells (slide guitar); Paul DeMarco (drums). Audio Mixer: Herman Frank. Photographer: Jim Hilburn. Rose Tattoo: Angry Anderson (vocals); Rockin' Rob Riley (guitar); Pete Wells (slide guitar); Steve King (bass); Paul DeMarco (drums).
