ROBYN HITCHOCK

ROBYN HITCHOCK
ROBYN HITCHCOCK   The enduring godfather of alt-rock is still full of sonic surprises  By Russell Hall  If Robyn Hitchcock never again hears the word “quirky,” that’ll be just fine with him. “I think what people mean is that, for me, an idea can come from anywhere,” he says. “They come from under the table, from behind the sofa, or from the back of a cupboard. They’re not the first places everybody looks. I suppose you could call... 

DRUM ROLE

DRUM ROLE
DRUM ROLE Recording drums takes expertise, experience and experimentation Whether it’s a tight funk beat, driving R&B groove or blistering metal assault, nothing defines the character of a song like artfully played—and beautifully recorded—drums.

Pat Metheny

Pat Metheny
PAT METHENY The jazz guitarist’s new instrument might look funny—but it’s no joke No other jazz guitarist of the past four decades has done as much as Pat Metheny to broaden the definition of the instrument and expand its possibilities. Metheny reached out to listeners outside of the jazz mainstream with early releases like 1975’s Bright Size Life and 1980’s As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls, and he’s maintained a huge audience... 

DAVID BOWIE + A Reality Tour

DAVID BOWIE + A Reality Tour
DAVID BOWIE A Reality Tour [ISO/Sony Legacy] David Bowie hasn’t released a new album in seven years, by far the longest break from recording of his career. Finally, in 2010, we get … a live album recorded in 2003 and already released on DVD in 2004? Its release on CD at this point may be puzzling, but the actual content of A Reality Tour nonetheless demonstrates that Bowie’s most recent major tour found him in excellent form. The performer...
