Jim James

Feb 1, 2013, By Blair Jackson

When we last checked in with Jim James, the charismatic and visionary frontman of the eclectic rock/soul/neo-psychedelic band My Morning Jacket, they had recorded a stunning album with co-producer/engineer Tucker Martine, called Circuital, essentially live in the studio, which in that case was actually an echo-y church school gymnasium in the band’s hometown of Louisville....

Feb 1, 2013, By Matt Gallagher

Guitarist Drew Zingg’s self-titled debut solo album is a revelation, and it was carefully designed to be one. It features the teamwork of Zingg with an elite rhythm section: Vinnie Colaiuta (drums), Will Lee (bass) and George Whitty (keyboards/arrangements).

Regina Spektor

Jun 1, 2012, By Barbara Schultz

It all starts with a grand piano, Regina Spektor’s acrobatic voice and the breathtaking songs that bloom from this classically trained artist’s fertile imagination—that’s a pretty amazing place to start.
