Those who watched 1990s late-night television should be familiar with the work of the Vivino Brothers, who were music directors for NBC's Late Night With Conan O'Brian. On that program, the job of singer/guitarist/pianist Jimmy Vivino and his sibling, singer/saxophonist Jerry Vivino, is to make O'Brian happy; however, on Blues Band, they sing and play for their own satisfaction. This decent, competent CD, which was recorded in April 2000, is fairly diverse. The Vivino Brothers are, as the album's title says, primarily a blues band, and cuts like "Feedback Out on Highway 101" and Lowell Fulson's "Sinner's Prayer" are gritty examples of urban electric blues. But the siblings detour into other areas, including soul on "Slippin' and Slidin'" and instrumental soul-jazz on Jerry's "Fat Burns," along with interpretations of Curtis Mayfield's "Pusher Man" and Sly & the Family Stone's "Family Affair." The Vivino Brothers don't just give us note-for-note covers of those 1970s R&B classics; instead, they take a hint from improvisers like Charles Earland and Grant Green and really interpret the songs. Brian Charette is the group's organist, and his work is right out of the Jimmy Smith/Jack McDuff/Earland school of organ playing. Blues Band isn't for blues purists, but it's enjoyable if you are the sort of eclectic listener who holds urban blues, R&B, and soul-jazz in equally high regard.

J.J. Cale: Big Brother o' Blues

More than eight years after his death, there is still no getting away from the vital wellspring of music that is the works of J.J. Cale. With his unique alloy of blues, folk, country and jazz, the man worshipped by Clapton, who lived for a while in a trailer, is still one of rock's most influential hermits.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.

The Doors, Jim Morrison’s Orchestra

Fifty years ago, on 3 July 1971, Jim Morrison died mysteriously in a Parisian bathtub, survived by his three partners: Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore, who had worked tirelessly for six years to translate his dreams into music.
