Wax Tailor // Dusty Rainbow From The Dark

Released 09.18.2012 Le Plan Records

Wax Tailor could arguably be one of the best and most under rated DJ’s around.   This complex and genius concept album demands your attention as it winds you up and draws you into its bad ass breaks and grooves.  Sit down in a dark room and listen to this one by yourself!

The Heavy // The Glorious Dead

Released 8/21/2012  Counter Records

Rock & Roll album of the year?   The Heavy lay down a driving intensity in this CD  - with multiple layers of rock and roll.   Undercurrent vibes from Jack White, Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys and others as the album explodes with creativity.   It’s funky, punky, jazzy, and makes me wanna ROCK & ROLL!

Led Zeppelin// "Celebration Day"

Just remember, this is LZ, so turn it up!  "Celebration Day" is a tribute to Ahmet Ertegun, one of the movers and shakers of the music world for over half a century, and this recording is likely the last time LZ will play. Who knows?

Kelly Richey Band // Carry The Light

Released June 3, 2008 Sweet Lucy Records

Kelly’s guitar playing and singing are amazing. She’s been described as “Stevie Ray Vaughan in a woman’s body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out.” Kelly does things with a guitar that simply amaze me.

Carlos Santana // Shape Shifter

Released 05.15.2012 Starfaith

With the release of this CD, Carlos returns to the classic Santana Sound.  Stunning music, simply stunning.  The  CD’s title track, "Shape Shifter," as well as “Nomad,” are emblematic of Santa’s stinging guitar solos, the big Hammond B3 organ weaving in and out, relentless percussionists keeping everyone honest . . . Carlos' transgalactic musique is back . . . big time.
