Martin Barre @ Debonair Music Hall in Teaneck, New Jersey, 10/6/2017

You’re not going to find a better guitarist then Martin Barre. The man seems so youthful playing these days, you’d never know he was in his 7th decade and if you do indeed get a chance to catch the man as he tours these smaller venues with his band, I suggest you get out to see him.

José Feliciano featuring the Les Paul Trio @ The Iridium, May 1st, 2017

José Feliciano featuring the Les Paul Trio @ The Iridium, May 1st, 2017

I have caught Mr. Feliciano plenty throughout his career. In fact, back in the day (but I won’t reveal how far back) I caught Jose’ Feliciano at Carnegie Hall, in what was the first concert I ever attended. From that moment on, even though I was young and had yet to see all the great guitarist I would come to (and mainly rock guys), the Puerto Rican guitar master struck me as playing on a different level than anyone else.

Genesis Revisited With Classic Hackett, 2/17/2017 @ The Victoria Theater, Newark, N.J.

Genesis Revisited With Classic Hackett, 2/17/2017 @ The Victoria Theater, Newark, N.J.

Steve Hackett and this spectacular band have been performing these half-and-half “Genesis Revisited” shows for a few years. They have the songs down (no easy feat to be sure), the right mix old and new…and of course, Steve Hackett is one of the very best rock guitarists ever. You owe it to yourself to catch this show, or at the very leats grab Hackett’s new album when it is released next month.

ARW @ The Wellmont Theatre, Montclair, N.J. 10/24/2016

ARW @ The Wellmont Theatre, Montclair, N.J. 10/24/2016

Augmented by bassist Lee Pomeroy and force-of-rumbling-nature drummer Lou Molino III, the boys from old Yes and newer Yes meshed well, even despite the low “wah” sound that always, unfortunately emanates through the rafters of The Wellmont. Rabin, a great guitarist, and composer, never will mine the nuances of Steve Howe’s playing, this particularly showed on “And You And I” and “Roundabout,” where Rabin’s heavier touch kept things down a bit, but from the press I have read about the joining of this trio (and creating an album soon-to-be-released) Wakeman has wanted to play with Rabin since the long ago massive ego Yes “Union” tour and Jon Anderson, the only original member of Yes still alive, seems to be pleased as punch to be fronting a band again, making this music, and sounding so great.
