John Oates: Arkansas Review

John Oates is best known for being half of the beloved ’80s band Hall and Oates. Hall and Oates represent the epitome of pop. They’ve sold millions upon millions of records. They had six number one hits. Michael Jackson copped to “borrowing” a riff from their “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)” for his own “Billie Jean.” You don’t think of either Daryl Hall, who sang lead on most of the duo’s songs, or Oates, as particularly bluesy, but Oates is a blues fanatic and on Arkansas, he lays down some blues-influenced, country tracks that show a side very different from his Hall and Oates work.

Hot Tuna: Portland Gig Review

Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady formed “Hot Tuna” in 1969 when they were members of the most famous psychedelic hippie band to come out of the Haight Ashbury counter culture flower power movement, “Jefferson Airplane.” The “Airplane,” as they were referred to, became front page tabloid news with top 40 radio hits, when singer Grace Slick and guitarist Paul Kantner had a baby that they named “God.” When things got too crazy, Jorma and Jack would jam together to relieve stress and do what they moved from Washington DC to San Francisco to do, play music. “Hot Tuna” performed “Uncle Sam Blues” at “Woodstock” as part of the “Airplane’s” set with Kaukonen singing lead and playing some great blues rock with Casady in tandem.

Joe Bonamassa: Redemption Review

Joe Bonamassa is known as a blues guitar hero, but the pleasant surprises of Redemption, his latest album, are his songwriting and vocals. Bonamassa is prolific. Redemption is 13th solo studio album. That’s not counting the live albums or his work with his Black Country Communion side project, nor his work with singer Beth Hart. The challenge of generating that much music is finding something new to say, while still holding on to your core sound.

Doyle Bramhall II reveals “Love and Pain”

Doyle Bramhall II is now streaming “Love and Pain,” a brand new track from his upcoming album, Shades, available October 5th.

“We wrote this song after the mass shooting in Las Vegas,” says Bramhall II. “The song asks the question behind the tragedies of mass shootings — not simply how did this happen, but why. Because these things are becoming more frequent and almost comfortably ubiquitous, because each one that happens seems to beget the instance of another one, because we are becoming hardened to and familiar with these tragedies — we wanted to write a song encapsulating the disorder of this new normal.”
