Rory Block "Avalon" 

"This is the fourth in her Mentor Series. Were this all she had ever done, her place in Blues history would be secured forever. No one, short of the masters themselves has ever played this music with the power and passion that Rory Block plays. Avalon is a modern masterpiece."


​Paul McCartney "New" 

"New is an album by Paul McCartney, released on 11 October 2013. It is Mccartney's sixteenth studio album and his first since 2007's Memory Almost Full to consist of entirely new compositions."

Trombone Shorty "Say That To Say This" 

Troy ‘Trombone Shorty’ Andrews has God-given talent, natural charisma and a relentless drive to bridge music’s past and future. His third outing for Verve Records, Say That To Say This (Sept. 10), co-produced by Andrews and kindred spirit Raphael Saadiq, sounds like nothing else out there.'

 3 Favorite Albums: 

Bon Iver "For Emma, Forever Ago"

First it was For Emma, Forever Ago. The soul in a refraction of icicles. A moment hanging like breath on air. And yet life – even still life – is not still. The story is not a story if it does not unravel. 

Gillian Welch "The Harrow & The Harvest"

The new Gillian Welch CD The Harrow & The Harvest, besides being a stunning album, is also a testament to musicians able to hold firm during a difficult quest for artistic fulfillment.

Horse Feathers "Cynic's New Year"

"Cynic's New Year' is anything but cynical, but does not fail to deliver something beautiful and new. It nagivates a thoughtful, thought-provoking expedition from the wide sky and rolling ocean to the most private corners of the human heart.
