Steve Winwood has just saved the day. Global threats, natural disasters, doubts and divisions, have stressed many people around the world. Yet here comes WINWOOD/Greatest Hits Live. It's a beautiful opus. Harmonies, flute, sax, mandolin, guitar, Hammond B3 and textured percussion are fluidly orchestrated to deliver a full listening experience that will enrich the soul.  Steve Winwood chose personal favorite live performances to honor his band and give the fans happy memories of prior shows. The album digs deep into the already vast collection that he has performed to universal music lovers for decades. Steve Winwood's music was always wise and transcendent. His live performances bring every song to a new horizon, as if you've heard them for the first time. Now you can bring this uplifting and muscially indulgent experience with you wherever you go. Listening to Winwood's selfless and passionate voice, with the warm tones created by the production masterpieces of the band, creates a cascade effect of hope and well being. Winwood is embarking on an international tour this year. We are big Winwood fans and have covered his work several times. See his performance live and pick up this magnificent album. With a treasure of legendary artists and song gems, the journey of fresh perspectives has just begun. 

It's hard to understand what took so long for the California Blues artist Johnny Ray Jones to release his very first album, Feet Back In The Door. Jones, who has got one of the most solid musical background within the Blues and R&B genres, started this project more than two decades ago, when in 1995 he started working on the making of what would have then become Feet Back In The Door.

The time must have not felt right for Jones, back then, despite having already four tracks completed and already recorded. Whatever happened from 1995 to present times certainly made well worth waiting for the singer/songwriter's debut album. Feet Back In The Door is a true musical feast, a sonic carousel where R&B, Soul, Americana and Blues walk hand in hand thanks to the deep, powerful and inspired vocal deliveries of the artist from Southern California.

Music intended as an art expression, when it is played live, should be a celebration of life or simply the joy of spending a couple of hours forgetting about daily problems and various issues we all get to deal with, sooner or later in our lives.

For many artists, nowadays, playing live music is their own way of making a living and quite rightly so, given the chronic, global crisis of the music business and the lack of incomes both for record labels and the artists themselves.

It's somehow still extraordinary that in a world that moves at the speed of light, where people or facts get easily forgotten in less than 48 hours, despite their importance or impact of any kind on the history of the world, someone of the caliber and talent like the Louisiana-born and drummer extraordinaire Stanton Moore still finds the time to pay respect, through the art form that defines him best, to a giant of world music and a personal friend.

With a new album ready to be recorded, back in 2015 and with his fellow friends musician David Torkanowsky on keys and James Singleton on bass ready to enter the studio to start the recording sessions, the news that one of Moore's long time friends and worldwide music icon, the late great Allen Toussaint, had passed unexpectedly away it really hit deeply the drummer, who had known and worked with Toussaint for quite some time.

The eternal battle between good and evil in human kind has always been one of the favorite subjects for music artists. Some of those artists have been unable often to find a fine line to express in their lyrics the catharsis that this inner dualism generates in many individuals. Some others, like Shaman's Harvest, have been instead perfectly capable to build and balance, both lyrically and sonically, a musical platform where light and darkness plays an equal role through their brand new album called Red Hands Black Deeds.

The collective from Jefferson City in Missouri has come a long way to put together an elaborated and, at the same time, sophisticated rock album, especially given what singer Nathan Hunt has been through in 2014, when a throat cancer threatened Hunt's life and, consequently, the future of the band.

There are certainly great injustices into the world of music business. You might get, on one hand, some random and almost talentless artists pulling off a catchy song that gets several millions viewers on social platforms and sell hundreds of thousands of records without too much sweat or real artistic talent at all.

On the other hand, you get extraordinarily skilled, multi-instrumentalist artists like Minnesota-based Scottie Miller that have to fight really hard to make their own name into the business, despite having so much talent on display. But when one is armed not just with a lot of perseverance but also with an insane ability in playing many instruments, a splendid singing voice and surrounded by some incredible musicians within his band as Miller is, that payback moment, sooner or later arrives.

When music becomes a vehicle of expression, a way to give voice to musician's instincts, that will be the place where you will find the British band Charley Brown.

On their debut album, simply entitled Charley Brown, the British quartet explores 1960 and 1970's sounds through a fascinating sonic time capsule, where the musicians pays respect to what might have been their fonts of inspiration through the years, from The Doobie Brothers to the Steely Dan, from Isaac Hayes to 70's disco.
