ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ROOTS

ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ROOTS
ROOTS ROCKERS Master wordsmith Elvis Costello funks up with musical magicians the Roots By Russell Hall Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson knows how to bide his time. Nearly five years ago, the Roots’ drummer and bandleader met for the first time with talk show host Jimmy Fallon to discuss potential musical guests for Fallon’s new late night TV show. As newly hired music director—with the Roots as house band—Questlove listened intently as Fallon... 

ELVIS COSTELLO

ELVIS COSTELLO
ELVIS COSTELLO A True Risk Taker I’m tempted to salute Elvis Costello’s new album with The Roots Wise Up Ghost  as his latest reinvention, but that word’s too associated with Madonna—wrongly, I might add—or a meme, except I really don’t know what that word means. Rather, Ghost is just the latest expansion in what has essentially been a two-pronged Costello career. First, of course, is his bread and butter: his rock band side, initially... 

THE CONCEPT OF WILLIE NELSON

THE CONCEPT OF WILLIE NELSON
THE CONCEPT OF WILLIE NELSON Confession: Something was missing in my recent bit on Willie Nelson’s 80th birthday. But I only realized it last week during a long walk home crosstown from the Cutting Room, where I and my new two friends had just seen Buster Poindexter (more on that later). During the show’s intermission, Lincoln Foley Schofield, the club’s booker, asked me how I liked the Willie celebration. It hadn’t even been a week, and I’d...

SHELBY LYNNE — Pasadena, Calif., 2000 FOCAL POINTS Photographer James Minchin III illuminates the spirit of rock ’n’ roll “The images I like most are those where I’m able to just get out of the way,” says photographer James Minchin III. “I prefer to document what’s actually happening rather than trying to create something.” That unerring eye for capturing a revealing moment has earned the trust and admiration of a diverse array...

DAR WILLIAMS
DAR WILLIAMS  Making sense of the modern world through the myths of an ancient time   When she titled her eighth and latest album In the Time of Gods, singer and songwriter Dar Williams wasn’t just looking for something that sounded lofty. On the contrary, Williams has lately been fascinated with Greek mythology and its gods and goddesses—Zeus, Hermes, Athena and their compatriots, whose tales she considers a prism through which to see the... 

ELVIS COSTELLO

ELVIS COSTELLO
ELVIS COSTELLO National Ransom [Hear Music] Elvis Costello has touched on a wide variety of genres during his career, but he usually sticks with one style at a time. On National Ransom, he finally blends two of his distinct artistic modes into one. Last year’s Secret, Profane & Sugarcane featured a band of Nashville acoustic-music ringers, who here are joined by Costello’s longtime rock outfit, the Imposters. The combination is a versatile...
