LSO Live explore the music of America’s most influential living composer with performances of three of his most iconic works: 'Sextet', 'Clapping Music' and 'Music for Pieces of Wood'. Employing Reich’s universally recognisable sound world, 'Sextet' uses hypnotic repetitions of a sequence of harmonies, which gradually overlap and interweave, resulting in a complex yet utterly compelling musical landscape.
Two CD set featuring the first official release of this legendary live performance, recorded in Maryland in 1979. The New Barbarians were a live-only band consisting of Rolling Stones members Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, Jazz great Stanley Clarke, former Faces/Small Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan, Bobby Keys and Ziggaboo Modeliste. 20 tracks including 'Sweet Little Rock 'N Roller', 'Love In Vain', 'Let's Go Steady', 'Before They Make Me Run', 'Jumping Jack Flash', 'Seven Days' and more. Includes an eight page full color booklet with extensive liner notes. Released on Ron Wood's Wooden Records label.
Live from Kilburn, the second in what may be an ongoing series of archival releases from Ron Wood's vaults, is rawer and rougher than the first, Buried Alive: Live in Maryland. Essentially, this is an official bootleg – containing a CD and a DVD of the entire show – of the first solo concert Woody played in support of his first album, 1974's I've Got My Own Album to Do. When Ronnie took to the stage he was supported by his new Stones bandmate Keith Richards, his old bandmate keyboardist Ian McLagan, bassist Willie Weeks, and drummer Andy Newmark – in other words, this is not the New Barbarians of the late '70s, but close enough that it's cleverly billed as the First Barbarians on this release.
This is an album by Ronnie Wood and Bo Diddley recorded live at the Ritz New York City, 1987. Songs played by the two guitarists include songs by Ron Wood, Bo Diddley, The Faces and the Rolling Stones. Rolling Stone and The Originator combine their efforts while performing at the Ritz in New York City in 1987. Most of the songs are Bo Diddley's originals, already classics of Blues. Others are written by Ron Wood, The Rolling Stones and The Faces. Songs vary from shorter versions to compositions that spin more than 7 minutes featuring guitar work of B & Ronnie as well as done on instrumental "Plynth".

Morning Wood refers to the eponymous CD released by Tony and an all-star line-up including, Al Pitrelli, Chuck Bonfonte and Danny Mirada. The project grew out of the series of shows Tony had participated in with Al's cover band, Ethyl Mertz. It was an acoustic project and mostly about the musicians enjoying themselves. When it was decided to record some tracks, the name Morning Wood surfaced. On how the CD came together, Tony said "We had been playing live with that line-up and the shows sounded really good so we just went in and recorded the band live and finished the thing in about ten days."
It's hard to believe that after more than two decades together playing in all sorts of sonic configurations, Medeski, Martin & Wood haven't released an acoustic trio album since 2000's Tonic. Free Magic remedies that. The set was recorded during their 2007 acoustic tour. There are five tunes in this hour-plus set; four are originals. Chris Wood's "Doppler" (a studio version appeared on 20 [available on iTunes]) commences as a rhythmic improv with Billy Martin playing balafon (an African cousin to the xylophone) with John Medeski on a toy piano and a melodica, and Wood bowing his upright. The pace gradually increases before a rhythmically repetitive motif introduces itself. After vamping on for a minute, the track shifts gears and becomes a jumping, funky, soul-jazz piano trio tune that suggests, in equal parts, the Impulse-era trios of Ahmad Jamal, and Les McCann's and Ramsey Lewis' mid-'60s groove fests.
Medeski, Martin & Wood are among the busiest acts in the music biz. To celebrate their 20-year anniversary in 2011, the group has been releasing its latest album, 20, track by track. Also this year, following the grand Radiolarians series, they decided to issue its DVD portion, Fly in a Bottle, as a separate package; finally, there's MSMW Live: In Case the World Changes Its Mind, an utterly kinetic recording from their 2006 tour with jazz guitar boss John Scofield. In 1997 the trio backed Sco on his stellar A Go Go album. He returned the favor in 2006 by playing on MMW's Out Louder; this tour followed. The double disc collects performances from both recordings and a couple of others.
