Tue, 2 Jan 2018 06:00:00 UT

A collection of (mostly) obscure songs by familiar artists, Bonamassa and Hart's new album features earthy, electrified reinventions that breathe new life into old numbers while giving the guitarist and the singer plenty of room to show off within icy-tight arrangements.

Music Review: Elder - 'Reflections of a Floating World'

Fri, 22 Dec 2017 06:00:00 UT

'Reflections of a Floating World' shifts from Isis-esque sludge to headbang-worthy, arena-ready guitar solos reminiscent of Rainbow-often within the same song. But for all of its chameleonic transmutation, it never sounds unfocused.

Theater Review (NYC Broadway): 'Farinelli and the King' with Mark Rylance

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 06:00:00 UT

Well played all around, this Shakespeare's Globe production is blessed with the preternaturally naturalistic Rylance, whose severely manic-depressive and sometimes delusional King Philippe V of Spain is both brilliantly imagined and pulsatingly real.

Concert Review: 'Early Music of the Maghreb' - Traditional Music of Northern Africa (NYC, 12 Dec 2017)

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 06:00:00 UT

The phrase "Early Music" usually refers to early European music, while the term "Afro Roots" generally means music from sub-Saharan Africa. Salon/Sanctuary Concerts teamed with Afro Roots Tuesdays to challenge both those assumptions with a concert of tradition-rooted music from northern Africa.

Great bluesman that he is, Ellis can speak volumes in a few well-placed notes. The songs span Chicago blues, rock, and soul with ease, delivering a dose of just about everything electric blues can offer.
