NORT SPRINGFIELD, VERMONT - This reviewer recently had the pleasure of seeing The Imperfectionists, perform live at KJ's Place in Springfield, a very cool venue and seemingly "perfect" setting for this intimate acoustic set of classic covers.

NAPA, CALIFORNIA – If you want to see an honest show, then go and see Dave Davies perform and if you want to see joy on someone's face, then go see Dave Davies perform. Yes, the expressions on his face are a “world tour” in themselves. As he furiously jams away on the fantastic songs he's written, Dave studies the music stand he trotted out and meticulously plays his guitar parts; then he looks up, sees he's performing for an audience full of new and old friends alike and you see the biggest grin you could imagine spreading across his face.

PHOENIX, ARIZONA - In San Francisco, on a chilly November evening, as I enter the Regency Grand Ballroom to see the Anderson-Ponty Band, (APB) I proceed up the stairs from a busy Van Ness Avenue into a spacious, yet somewhat narrow lobby. The vaulted ceiling introduced a hallway on my left and my right.

If Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and The Allman Brothers Band ever had a secret baby, than Mark Knight would be their musical Black Crow of a love child, observing from the top of a tree, the top of a house, or the top of a mountain. In the lyrics of Knight's latest self-titled release, you may notice the ending of a previous life lived. But we also get the rebirth of another life beginning.

ALBANY, NEW YORK - Having been a Genesis fan over four decades running, it was a thrill to recently experience live, Steve Hackett, the guitar virtuoso who played a major part in the legendary band's formative years. The setting was “The Egg,” a intimate and futuristic-looking (from the outside) venue in Albany, New York, that I had also yet to experience.

NORTHAMPTON, MASSACHUSETTS – Joe Jackson is one of those artists that transcends music genres; pub rock, punk, jazz, R & B, ballads and even vibes of world music... and they were all on display on this fall night at Northampton's Academy of Music Theatre, which has the unique distinction of being the first municipality-owned theatre (established in 1891) in the United States.

CORNISH, NEW HAMPSHIRE - This music fan spent last Sunday afternooon enjoying longtime, New Hampshire/Vermont rockers VEHICLE, performing live at the Cornish Fair in Cornish, New Hampshire. The weather cooperated nicely and the band put on an entertaining show for the crowd, which just so happened to be peppered with several other great local musicians, all there to enjoy the music.

Considering Scott “Top Ten” Kempner’s music roots, being a founding member of proto punk-rock icons The Dictators and all, you might not expect a live solo-acoustic release from the Bronx-born guitarist... and as it turns out, with this live recording, Kempner wasn’t expecting it either.

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA - A great song is one that drives people other than the author to perform it. A great song writer is one who gets you to drop out of your world and live, even if it is only for three minutes, in the world of the song. A great performer whisks you away into a time and place directed by the songs he or she decide to perform.

DENVER, COLORADO - The Rocky Mountains, dividing the US continent, were created millions of years ago by a surge of unimaginable amount of energy. From this cataclysmic uproar a fluid stream of asphalt oozed up and poured over the prairie like a silkie layer of fudge on a hashish cake. Where herds of Winnebegos once roamed free, cowboys and cowgirls ride along in electric cars which say, “Mha, mha, mha” when you lay on the horn.
