RIP: Ronald Shannon Jackson. Ronald Shannon Jackson died peacefully at his home in Ft. Worth on October 19, 2013.
Power Tools was a one-off semi-supergroup that, if it didn't quite fulfill expectations, at least offered up this enjoyable album. It's an odd mixture; drummer Ronald Shannon Jackson was in the midst of his time with the free-metal-noise band Last Exit, bassist Melvin Gibbs was involved with various avant funk bands (including that of Arto Lindsay), and the pre-Naked City Bill Frisell was beginning to delve into that hazy area between country/Americana and jazz.

CBZ (Minutemen) | Marvel | Released Mar 10 2010 | 50 Pages (Including Covers) | 59.85 MB

An oversized black-and-white comic book, offers a collection of short stories by various writers and artists, paying homage to the magazine-style comics of old and the character as originally created by the legends Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The first, and meatiest is a tale by Kieron Gillen and Frazer Irving, "The Cure". None of the the other stories are as lengthy as Gillen's but all stand out in their own way. Peter Milligan and Frank Brunner tackle a more down-to-Earth story (for Strange, anyway) where the hero attempts to help a middle-aged man deal with the demons of his past. Next is a tale written and drawn by Ted McKeever, with an inebriated Strange meeting both friend and foe in a dark alleyway--packed with both energy and humor. The last story up is an illustrated prose piece by Mike Carey and Marcos Martin. HQ Minutemen scan. Three thumbs up.

Ireland's answer to the Incredible String Band, Dr. Strangely Strange engaged in the same type of psychedelic acoustic music with folksy arrangements. With traditional instruments like penny whistle, fiddle, harmonium, and mandolin, Dr. Strangely Strange was more solidly rooted in melody and structure than the group's flaky Scottish counterparts. Produced by British modern folk guru Joe Boyd, "Kip of the Serenes" is built around simple and repetitious melodies occasionally interrupted by stream-of-consciousness musical and lyrical diversions. This simplistic approach would be abandoned with their 1970 follow-up, "Heavy Petting", which saw their first partnership with electric guitarist Gary Moore.

Bébé le Strange is the fifth studio album by the American rock band Heart. It was released on February 14, 1980 through Epic Records. It was the first album without founding member Roger Fisher on lead guitar, who had left the band months prior along with his brother Michael. The album was a commercial success, peaking at number five on the U.S. Billboard 200 and staying in the charts for 22 weeks. The album was re-released in an expanded edition in 2004, containing two additional songs: a live version of "Break" and the studio outtake "Jackleg Man".

Reissue of the album recorded with Dusko Goykovich, et al. 24bit digitally remastered. Cardboard sleeve (mini LP). This is one of the rarest of all Blue Note albums, and one that is a must for record collectors. The Francy Boland/Kenny Clarke big band was one of the most exciting orchestras of the 1960s and ‘70s. Much less known but also brilliant was a unique octet co-led by Boland and Clarke just prior to the big band.

This relatively early set from Bill Frisell is a fine showcase for the utterly unique guitarist. Frisell has the ability to play nearly any extroverted style of music and his humor (check out the date's "Music I Heard") is rarely far below the surface. This particular quintet (with trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, tuba player Bob Stewart, electric bassist Jerome Harris and drummer Paul Motian) is not exactly short of original personalities and their outing (featuring seven Frisell compositions) is one of the most lively of all the ones in the ECM catalog.

With their flair and brilliance, the Six Preludes justifiably became regarded as among Lennox Berkeley’s finest piano works. They originated in a BBC commission for short pieces that could be performed as interludes between programmes (the BBC later dropped this idea). Berkeley intended the pieces to be playable by skilled amateurs and while two proved more difficult than he had envisaged, none requires a virtuoso pianist.
Berkeley’s natural adroitness at developing thematic material is nowhere demonstrated better than in the Sonata, his most significant …
