Dan Penn and Dewey Lyndon "Spooner" Oldham first met as members of the Fame studio house band in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Penn had already had songwriting success at the age of 14 when one of his first compositions became a hit for Conway Twitty. His subsequent collaborations with Oldham and/or producer Chips Moman resulted in a score of hits for such soul luminaries as Percy Sledge, Clarence Carter, and James Carr ("The Dark End Of The Street"). The Penn/Moman song "Do RightWoman, Do Right Man" was a massive hit for Aretha Franklin.

Recorded live in the UK and Ireland in 1998, Penn and Oldham work through stripped-down arrangements of self-penned soul and pop hits such as "I'm Your Puppet," "Cry Like A Baby" and the aforementioned James Carr classic. "Do Right Woman, Do Right Man" is, unsurprisingly, the clincher. The listener can be forgiven for thinking that he has just stumbled in on two old friends in a casual jam session. The songs are delivered with such intimacy that only the applause betrays the concert setting. A great album !!!

3 CD COLLECTION OF THE FINEST AVALABLE LIVE STEELY DAN RECORDINGS As extraordinary as the music of Steely Dan remains, the how and why of it all coming about is stranger still. The joining forces of two nerdy students - one an English Lit. major, the other a musical prodigy in the late 1960s could hardly be seen as the most promising recipe for success, nevermind a springboard for the creation of perhaps the most unique, creative, musically adventurous, enormously listenable and downright joyous run of albums in the entire history of pop music. But despite it all that was what the mighty Dan achieved during the 1970s and beyond, and as those records continue to inspire just about everyone who hears them, the mystery remains.

Digitally remastered edition. Look At The Fool, the ninth and final studio album to be released by Tim Buckley in his lifetime (the album was released in November 1974, and Buckley was to die from a drug overdose on 29th June 1975, aged only 28), is seen by some as the last in a trio of 'sex-funk' releases. He'd begun this trilogy with Greetings From LA in 1972. He followed Greetings with Sefronia and the last album in his deal with DiscReet, the label owned by his manager, Herb Cohen, was this - Look At The Fool. The album has been remastered from the original tapes by Dave Schultz in 2017, and the booklet features the lyrics and new annotation.

Ladan Hussein, known on stage as Cold Specks has returned with her most personal work yet. The artist recognized for her twistedly enthralling lyrics and distinctive soulful voice, has dug deep and returned to her roots. In this masterful body of work, Cold Specks intimately explores her identity as a Somali-Canadian woman. She’s unveiled and allowed herself to stretch her palette thematically. The rawness that’s deemed Cold Specks a dark soul, has revealed itself to be a cathartic after glow, illuminating the sort of light born through healing.

Walter Becker and Donald Fagen were remarkable craftsmen from the start, as Steely Dan's debut, Can't Buy a Thrill, illustrates. Each song is tightly constructed, with interlocking chords and gracefully interwoven melodies, buoyed by clever, cryptic lyrics. All of these are hallmarks of Steely Dan's signature sound, but what is most remarkable about the record is the way it differs from their later albums. Of course, one of the most notable differences is the presence of vocalist David Palmer, a professional blue-eyed soul vocalist who oversings the handful of tracks where he takes the lead. Palmer's very presence signals the one major flaw with the album – in an attempt to appeal to a wide audience…

There has been something of a renaissance of what I like to call chanteuse style vocalists, women who borrow from jazz and romantic torch singers of the past in their style. That got a boost back in 2002 with Norah Jones' first album, and there have also been notable recordings by kd lang, Madeleine Peyroux, Judith Owen, and numerous others. They vary in their approach. Some apply their creative energy to adapting the songs of others, while some are singer-songwriters in their own right. Some take a more contemporary direction while others are decidedly retro their sound.

The Dan Reed Network were formed in 1984 when school friends and fellow Nightwing band mates Dan Reed and Dan Pred both ended up living in Portland. Along with guitarist Brion James, bassist Melvin Brannen and keyboardist Blake Sakamoto, formerly of Quaterflash. The group went on to release an independent EP, and within two years had signed with Polygram. Their self titled debut album was recorded with producer Bruce Fairbairn. Their first single 'Ritual' became a Top 40 hit in 1988 and a subsequent tour built upon their success.

Dan Tepfer — whom New York magazine dubbed “one of the moment’s most adventurous and relevant musicians” — has criss-crossed the globe over the past several years. The broad success of the pianist’s 2011 album Goldberg Variations / Variations — an improvisational exploration of J.S. Bach’s masterpiece — led to packed concerts from London’s Wigmore Hall, Chicago’s Ravinia Festival and SF Jazz in San Francisco to events in Berlin, Prague, Tokyo, Vancouver and Manhattan’s Le Poisson Rouge, with The New York Times declaring the latter performance “riveting and inspiring.” Tepfer followed that with Small Constructions, a studio-savvy 2013 album with reed player Ben Wendel, as well as his ongoing collaboration with sax icon Lee Konitz.
