Following the 2015 release of the critically acclaimed “Fast Forward”, legendary songwriter Joe Jackson has announced the release of his new studio album “Fool”. The record, which is the 20th studio album of Jackson’s career, was the fulfilment of a career-long dream: to finish a tour and head straight into the studio with the band firing on all cylinders. So, on July 29th, Joe wrapped up his 2018 summer tour at The Eqyptian Theater in Boise, Idaho – and the following day set up shop at Tonic Room Studios in town. Read More

Might as well admit my bias: Jacintha has become one of my favorite living female vocalists. I initially came across her work when my friend Paul Seydor, a senior writer for The Absolute Sound, gave me a copy of her first Groove Note album Here’s to Ben, a tribute to legendary tenor saxophonist Ben Webster. I don’t know which impressed me more: the lushness of her voice or the vividness of her interpretations. Read More

When Ying Tan told me that Jacintha’s second album for Groove Note would be a collection of Johnny Mercer songs, I felt a quickening of the pulse. Here surely would be a recital of rare sympathy: one of the most purely romantic of all lyricists interpreted by one of the most ravishingly beautiful voices to come along in jazz and popular music this last quarter century. Few new singers of standards display as much awareness of the performing traditions of the American popular song as this Singapore-born and raised jazz singer, whose first album for Groove Note paid explicit tribute to the great tenor saxophonist Ben Webster.

Jacintha’s first popular music vocal album represents a striking change of pace from this audiophile favorite.Read More

Lindsey Buckingham began 2018 as a member of Fleetwood Mac but by April he had been dismissed from the group he called home since 1975. As he regrouped, he released Solo Anthology: The Best of Lindsey Buckingham, a long-overdue retrospective of his solo recordings. Available as a single-disc and a triple-CD set, Solo Anthology rounds up rarities — notably, “Holiday Road,” the incessantly catchy theme song he wrote for 1983’s National Lampoon’s Vacation makes its first appearance on a Buckingham album, showing up on both editions of Solo Anthology — but its focus is on presenting a full portrait of Buckingham, the tasteful pop eccentric.Read More

The music is scored for a septet of violin, double bass, clarinet, bassoon, cornet or trumpet), trombone, and percussion. The libretto is adapted by Roger Waters from the translation by Michael Flanders and Kitty Black, based on the original text by Charles-Ferdinand Ramus.Read More
