Monkey House is the creation of singer/songwriter/arranger/producer Don Breithaupt. Left is their fifth album, and the follow-up to their 2012 album, Headquarters. Left features a slew of great players including Jay Graydon, guitar ace Elliott Randall, saxophonist Donnie McCaslin, Kim Mitchell, Drew Zingg and Michael Leonhart. Left is more than a collection of songs, it's a fully formed and compelling work of art Don explains that "I'm rather a traditionalist. I view the making of an album as part of the art form. It is meant to be cohesive, something that musically and sonically sounds like one body of work.
First new album in four years from the legendary Portland quartet and first for Dine Alone Records. Knows an America's Best Britpop Band. Features the single 'You Are Killing Me'.

Hed Kandi’s most iconic album concept returns with enough blissed-out beats to keep you dancing all summer long With three mixes of sun-kissed grooves and sultry Hed Kandi hedonism, Beach House takes the listener on a journey from sunrise to sunset. It's the perfect accompaniment to both poolside listening and the hottest beach parties of the summer.
AMG have no review but 4 stars for this album. Powerful show The blind Boys Of Alabama made at the House Of Blues. I just love the "Blind Boys of Alabama". They are just incredible. At times when I want to just sit back, close my eyes and let my feelings go, I turn on the "Blind Boys of Alabama", and their music just brings out emotion like few others can. Very very good CD.
In Memoriam. Larry Coryell, a guitarist who played rock 'n' roll as a teen but wound up pioneering jazz-rock fusion starting in the mid-1960s and then psychedelic fusion in the early '70s, died on Feb. 19. He was 73. RIP Mr. Coryell. In the 1970s, Germany's Radio Bremen simulcast a series of modern jazz concerts from all across the spectrum, and wisely archived them. Record producer Consul Bodo Jacoby was looking for a new project after losing the rights to reissue the MPS catalog and recalled them. His Promising Music label is issuing a number of these vintage performances in what he calls the Livelove series, of which January 1975 is the first volume.
