The International Touring Organ is the eighth organ by Marshall & Ogletree, the Needham, Massachusetts organ builders redefining the digital organ as an instrument of artistic significance. Its concept is simple: innovate the relationship between organ and organist. While the uniqueness of each pipe organ is part of its collective magic, this makes it impossible to perform the same music regardless of where the organist plays, as any violinist can do through a relationship of years with a single instrument.

The Wood Brothers

Dec 12 2017

Indeed, The Wood Brothers’ sixth outing, ‘One Drop of Truth,’ dives headfirst into a deep wellspring of sounds, styles and influences. Whereas their previous outings have often followed a conceptual and sonic through-line, here the long-standing trio featuring brothers Oliver and Chris Wood along with Jano Rix treat each song as if it were its own short film. The plaintive, country-folk of the album’s opening track “River Takes The Town” gives way to the The Band-esque Americana soul of “Happiness Jones.” The wistful ballad “Strange As It Seems” floats on a cloud of stream of consciousness, standing in stark contrast to “Sky High”—a Saturday night barnburner built upon stinging slide guitar funk. “Seasick Emotions” is rife with turmoil, yet “Sparking Wine” is jaunty and carefree. The end result is undeniably The Wood Brothers’ most dynamic recording to date.

“Often, when you’re making an album in the traditional way, there will be a unifying concept, whether that be in the approach to the music stylistically or lyrically in terms over the overall narrative. And even though there are some themes that revealed themselves later, this one is all over the place,” explains Oliver Wood.

The intensely involving 14-song collection may be the most deeply felt, deeply affecting work of Lucinda Williams’ illustrious 35-plus-year career, a career that has been established on a foundation of remarkably personal songs.

Easier to believe when you learn he released his first platinum record at 15"an age when many young people are just beginning to play music. Lie to Me revealed a talent that transcended the crop of blues prodigies floating aroundin the late Nineties. No flashy re-hasher of classic blues licks, even at that earlyage Lang was a full-blown artist with a style of his own. Also, setting Lang apartfrom the wunderkind crowd was a 15-year-old voice that sounded like aweathered soul shouter. Actual life experience was yet to come, and has beensubsequently chronicled in a series of five uniformly excellent recordings. "I gotmarried,

This is the story in it’s most abbreviated form.
