I’m at the point in my audio journey (and I’m sure a few of you are too) where I really don’t need more gear, are at least gear that is significantly better than what I already have is beyond my means

Savoy Brown, Ain't Done Yet was released on August 28, 2020. 

 

"Longevity is often a rarity in the fickle world of rock, but when it comes to the blues, it’s never considered out of the ordinary. Most of the great blues artists of the last half century — be it B.B. King, Buddy Guy, John Mayall or Delbert McClinton are known for making music into their 80s or beyond, proving that their prowess doesn’t diminish with age, and in fact, often becomes more definitive and defined."

AC/DC PowerUp will be released on November 13, 2020.

 

"This is AC/DC's first effort since 2014's Rock or Bust and comes after a period where it seemed like the group's future was in doubt. Rock or Bust arrived with the news that Malcolm Young was forced into retirement due to numerous health problems suffered in recent years, including lung cancer, heart problems, a stroke and dementia. His and Angus Young's nephew Stevie played rhythm guitar on the record. Malcolm died in November 2017."

Simon Collins (the son of Phil Collins) Becoming Human was released on September 4, 2020.

 

"Becoming Human finds Collins comfortably returning to the sound of Dimensionaut, with even more focus on strong hooks and memorable melodies. This is immediately evident in the album’s title track and first single. Electronic sounds build the soundscape underneath Collin’s raw vocals right before the chorus kicks with subtle guitars and drums."

Anthony Gomes, Containment Blues was released on October 16, 2020.

 

"Blues fans will welcome the imminent arrival of the new Anthony Gomes album Containment Blues, officially released this October 16th on Up 2 Zero Records, a follow-up to Peace, Love & Loud Guitars (2018.) Toronto-native Anthony Gomes is a blues/rock sing-songwriter and guitarist whose passion for the genre is self-evident. During his illustrious career he has performed alongside a cast of greats including Buddy Guy, Robert Plant and Joe Bonamassa, garnering a host of accolades along the way. As a musician, Gomes is dedicated to a form of living, breathing blues. “The Blues is old,” he says, “but not tired,” echoing a memorable piece of wisdom given to him by no less than B.B. King, “The Blues are like the laws of the land. They need to be amended to the times we live in.”

 Robin Trower, Maxi Priest, Livingstone Brown, United State of Mind was released on October 9, 2020.

 

"Three legendary artists singer/songwriter Maxi Priest, guitarist Robin Trower, and producer/mix engineer and musician Livingstone Brown release their new single “United State of Mind” from their upcoming album, ‘United State of Mind’ out October 9, 2020 on Manhaton Records.

 

After a chance meeting in Livingstone’s studio in Brixton, UK, this unlikely trio hit it off. All directly influenced by soul and gospel, they have a deep appreciation for music and share a passion for all genres."

 

This is nothing like I've heard from Robin Trower before. It's his signature guitar sound, but it's funky, soulful, and playful at times. I really enjoy this album, and it gets a 9 on the Sk1Bum 10 point scale. I hope you like it too.

Konstantin Klashtorni,  7 x 7 was released on February 14, 2020.

 

"Konstantin has a new album out for 2020. It is called 7 x 7 and true to form, this effort showcases his smooth sax stylings. His record label describes him as the "master of chill and king of cool," and we would have to totally agree with that assessment."

Katalyst, Nine Lives was released on September 25, 2020.

 

"Nine Lives grips with the energy of infinite possibility and digs in with a drive that sets it apart – a forward propulsion that reflects the very movement of the Los Angeles jazz scene itself. Conceived solely on an improv basis, the album represents a highlight reel of two months of Sunday jam sessions that Katalyst spent together at their home base in Inglewood, California."

Dirty Streets, Rough and Tumble was released on July 31, 2020.

 

"Whereas most outfits would love to emerge from the studio with a final mix as precise and vibrant as Rough and Tumble, Dirty Streets manage to accomplish the feat live from the stage. It might take listeners a few spins to discern that this isn’t a studio set."

Anthony Kalugin, Marshmallow Moondust was released on October 10, 2020.

 

"With 2020 being a bad year for so many people because of COVID-19, the virus itself, and the lockdowns that followed, we all need something to remedy the hardships endured by so many. And here comes a new CD with music that is a real breath of fresh air!"

 

For you progressive rock fans, this is a good selection. I think it makes great background music for household chores, reading, or just perusing C! looking for someone to mess with. :D 

 

This one gets an 8.5 on the Sk1Bum 10 point scale.

Michael Van Merwyk, The Bear was released on May 8, 2020.

 

"On his new CD “The Bear“ he is back to the Blues with stories about life’s ups and downs and in-betweens. No matter if MvM plays on his own with his beloved old Dobro or if he’s backed by a small band including the great Christian Dozzler on piano & harmonica, Micha Maas on drums and Tobi Fleischer on bass, there ́s always a relaxed but powerful energy in the music."

Jason Miles//Kind of New, Black Magic was released on March 6, 2020.

 

"Like his first album under the Kind of New moniker, a 2015 collaboration with trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, Jason Miles’ Black Magic is all about steep, deep jazz-funk groove-making, catchy melodies, and no-holds-barred solo romps, with more than a few nods to the brand of ’70s electric jams associated with the pianist/keyboardist’s onetime employer, Miles Davis. Unlike the earlier disc, the new one is more of a band effort, featuring a group he recently led on a tour of Europe: saxophonist Jay Rodriguez, trumpeter Philip Dizack, bassist Reggie Washington, and drummer Gene Lake."

Black Stone Cherry, The Human Condition was released on October 30, 2020.

 

"Black Stone Cherry raises the roof and blows out the windows on its new album The Human Condition. Set to break free October 30th, 2020 on Mascot Records, the record focuses on a beefy modern rock sensibility that hits like a gut punch and proves the group hasn’t lost any of the snarl and ferocity that brought it to life almost 20 years ago. The collection will be available on red transparent vinyl, a limited- edition CD box set, and digitally."

Elvis Costello, Hey Clockface was released on October 30, 2020.

 

"Hey Clockface is a terrific record and a testament to the investigational cleverness of Elvis Costello. After all, how many other artists who’ve been around this long and who’ve toyed with so many different styles can still surprise and satisfy almost as much as they did when they first broke out? From start to finish, the album does a great job of capturing the nostalgia and wisdom of age without losing sight of the youthful tenacity and outspokenness that’s always made him unique. Backed and guided by some other truly talented folks, Costello’s latest is another pleasingly characteristic and weighty addition to his already illustrious legacy."

Hey Clockface also features contributions from Bill Frisell, Nels Cline, and longtime collaborator Steve Nieve.

Eagles, Live From The Forum MMXVIII was released on October 16, 2020.

 

"With the passing of Glenn Frey in 2016, some might wonder whether The Eagles may ever fly quite as high as they once did. However, if there is one thing Live From The Forum MMXVIII proves it is that you can’t stop the best, pulling out the best in times of trouble.

 

Recorded live at The Forum in Inglewood, California,Frey’s son Deacon and Pure Prairie League multi-instrumentalist Vince Gill joined Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmitt on what can only be described as an explosion of superbly delivered nostalgia, musicianship and respect."

Thanks, I wasn't aware of this release. So, I looked on Amazon and purchased the 2 CD plus Blu-ray package yesterday and it will be here on Saturday. The Blu-ray will be my next Music & Merlot session using our Home Theater system.

Holy Roller Baby, Frenzy was released on October 9, 2020.

 

"Holy Roller Baby is the next emerging rock band we should all be excited about. The band’s new record, Frenzy, drops on October 9th, 2020 and shows them to be a highly-developed outfit, unafraid to mix heavy riff rock and gritty Motown-inspired grooves in the same set."

This band reminds me of Survivor. If you like big-hair, melodic rock, and I think you'll enjoy this album. I know I do. This one gets an 8.5 on the Sk1Bum 10 point scale.

Jazz In Pink, Joy! was released on October 30, 2020.

 

" ‘Joy’ is very much the Gail Jhonson show.  With ten of her own impeccable compositions this long time Musical Director for Norman Brown produces and plays keyboards throughout. The fact she is joined in her endeavours by label mates Kim Waters. Marion Meadows and Paul Jackson Jr. serves simply as the icing on a particularly tasty cake, a fact that becomes obvious from as early as the opening track, the deliciously smooth ‘Joy Joy’, that incidentally was the first single to be serviced to radio."
