Ten Great Records from 2016

2016 was a bittersweet year for music. We lost some of our most influential artists, but many bands also released great albums. So many good albums, in fact, that I had more difficulty than usual whittling down my list to ten. I decided to choose albums that may not receive as much coverage in the […]

Top Ten Albums of 2015 [Judy Mills' Picks]

10) Title Fight Hyperview–not the hardcore emo band you remember.  This record shows a more shoegaze version of the band that I keep going back to. 9) Joanna Newsom Divers–Will not convince you if you are not a Joanna fan.  But if you are, you’ll love “Divers” for being more concise but equally ethereal. 8) Low Ones and […]

Blue Note Reissues (part 4)

For my final post regarding the Blue Note 75th Anniversary Reissue Series, I want to discuss what is, quite possibly, my favorite jazz album. If not of all time, then certainly my favorite of this series. McCoy Tyner was most famous for playing piano in John Coltrane’s quartet in the early 1960s. After a series […]

Blue Note Reissues (part 3)

With the exception of Medeski Martin & Wood’s Combustication, my previous posts regarding the Blue Note 75th Anniversary Reissue Series have focused on the label’s older records. (Not that Combustication is exactly new; it was released in 1998.) This week, I want to address a couple recent releases. While jazz may have become highbrow and […]

Blue Note Reissues (part 2)

In my last post regarding the Blue Note 75th Anniversary Reissue Series, I suggested starting with Combustication by Medeski Martin & Wood and The Sidewinder by Lee Morgan. Once again, in the spirit of helpfulness, I’d like to suggest a few other albums for you, the discerning listener.  I feel that a couple other great, accessible […]
