The seemingly sporadic existence of Crescent came to notice again in the 21st century with By the Roads and the Fields, the band's first effort in four years following Collected Songs and only the full group's second proper album as such. It's not a pace or a model to maintain anything more than a cult appreciation, perhaps, but there's a further intrigue to By the Roads and the Fields as well in that the group's sound has refocused in the interim. The overall feeling of shadowy restraint and moody compositions remain, but the feeling throughout is clearer, less swathed in feedback and echo and placing stronger emphasis on the percussion and audible and intelligible lyrics from Matt Jones than before. In a way it's a parallel to how the related group Movietone similarly went from overdrive to sparseness, with the hint of Crescent's earlier loud sound hovering in the background while never fully returning, while in turn the calmer songs such as "New Sun" now serve as the general role models. "Spring" begins with Jones demonstrating his new singing approach, softly and nervously sung perhaps but still clear. "New Leaves" almost builds to the fuzz-heavy blowout of earlier efforts, while the hints of dub that Jones has often employed come forward more fully on "Mimosa," even down to the use of a melodica. There are also touches such as the woozy woodwinds on "Fountains" and the use of chimes, bells, and tones to create the complex rhythm of "Mica." If there's an emblematic song on By the Roads and the Fields, it might be "Straight Line," with the sound of (apparently) vibes and occasional piano meshing with the gently loping rhythm while Jones repeats the chorus like a low-key mantra.

Betty Davis, la pantera funk

Senza di lei, nessuna Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse né Janelle Monáe! Scomparsa dai riflettori ormai da anni, Betty Davis resta la pioniera delle soul sister feline. La dea funk per eccellenza. E addirittura colei che elettrizzò un certo Miles Davis di cui sarà un’effimera compagna. Ma chi è Betty?

J.J. Cale: l’eremita del blues

A più di cinque anni dalla sua scomparsa, non si può dimenticare quella fonte vitale di musica che è stato il lavoro di J.J. Cale. Con la sua fusione unica di blues, folk, country e jazz, quest'uomo venerato da Eric Clapton, che visse per un po' anche in un trailer-park, continua ad essere uno degli asceti più influenti del rock.

Frank Zappa, per il meglio e per una risata

Frank Zappa se ne andò il 4 dicembre 1993, ma più gli anni passano e più la sua assenza si fa sentire in maniera crudele nel panorama musicale attuale. Non che sia stato dimenticato, no, è che si cerca invano qualcuno che possa pretendere di uguagliarlo. Il genio cosmico e comico di Frank Zappa non ha equivalenti al giorno d’oggi, perché nessuno, dopo quasi tre decenni, è stato capace, come lui, di coniugare la maggior eccellenza musicale con un humour assolutamente disinibito.
