Four decades-spanning, rare live albums from Paul McCartney have been reissued in a variety of formats. The albums – “Amoeba Gig,” “Paul is Live,” “Choba B CCCP,” and “Wings Over America” – have been remixed and remastered into new vinyl, CD, and digital editions.
Sublime with Rome is back with their third album, entitled “Blessings.” It’s the first album to feature drummer Carlos Verdugo. The band, which began ten years ago with original Sublime drummer Bud Gaugh, is still anchored by original bassist Eric Wilson.
Billy Sherwood has been keeping busy with his bass duties in Yes and Asia, but he’s somehow managed to make the followup to his 2015 solo album, “Citizen.” The new chapter is entitled “Citizen: In The Next Life” and it continues the album’s concept.
The bass and drum “power-proggy” duo Clatter has returned with a new album called “Pull Back for Sound.” Featuring bassist Amy Humphrey and drummer Joe Hayes, the Missouri-based group went overseas to record the effort.
Organist Mike LeDonne has released a new trio album called “Partners in Time” with Lewis Nash on drums and Christian McBride on bass. Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, the album ranges from traditional straight-ahead swing to modern style jazz.
The Foo Fighters released a surprise EP this week compiled from their archive including one of their earliest gigs. “00950025” has three tracks, two of which were taken from the band’s 1995 appearance at the Live at Reading Festival in London.
The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York makes itself home to some of the most influential jam, rock, and soul bands in the world, so it’s no wonder that Gov’t Mule’s latest live release was captured there.
Chick Corea has a new project called the Spanish Heart Band that has released their first album, called “Antidote.” The jazz pianist partially revisits his classic album, “My Spanish Heart,” for the record. The band is full of jazz luminaries including bassist Carlitos del Puerto.
For the first time in nearly two decades, the Cro-Mags have released new music. The NYC Hardcore band, led by bassist/vocalist Harley Flanagan, dropped a three-track EP called “Don’t Give In” that marks their first new music since 2000’s “Revenge.”
The Aristocrats have just released their fourth album, entitled “You Know What…?” Although the trio – consisting of Guthrie Govan, Marco Minnemann, and Bryan Beller – are already musically adventurous, they say this may be their wildest.
