‘I don’t have time in my life to do that': Steven Wilson on his departures from Blackfield, Porcupine Tree
As Steven Wilson begins a 17-date North American tour, one that will feature a half-dozen in-store appearances, it’s increasingly clear where his passion lies: On solo projects like the recently released The Raven That Refused To Sing.
Nik Turner, the sax-playing space-rock pioneer with Hawkwind, may be as busy as he’s ever been. Fresh off a carnival-like series of appearances at South by Southwest, Turner’s working on a new album, and will make several guest appearances
Though his music is very much set in the world of traditional country, filled with banjos, fiddles and, for the most part, nary a distorted guitar to be found, Bob Wayne is not what you’d call a traditional country musician.
Accomplished musical alchemist Billy Martin has taken an opportunity away from Medeski Martin and Wood to rekindle an idea he had years ago — combining ragtime and funk with trumpeter Steven Bernstein.
‘Play with one Beatle, and it really f*cks up your jazz career': Denny Seiwell on Wings, and other things

Since his career went supernova with Silk Degrees, Boz Scaggs has continued to hone his craft, digging deeper into the blues, employing broader jazz brushstrokes — and nowhere is that fine tuning more obvious than on his terrific new album.
Credit, or blame, Mike Oldfield for the new age movement that followed his groundbreaking 1973 effort Tubular Bells. If anything, though, his dance-oriented new sequel Tubular Beats blows that old notion to bits.
