ALTROK Ordinals 33
Josh Rouse - Under Cold Blue Stars (Slow River/Ryko)
Jeff says:Born in Nebraska, living variously in California, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, South Dakota, Georgia, and Arizona during the years to follow; obsessed as a teen with British cult favorites like the Smiths and the Cure, he learned to play guitar from his uncle and wrote his first song at 18. This is his fourth critically acclaimed album.
Richard Shindell - Courier-Live (Signature Sounds)
Jeff says:Richard has a new live album (some of it recorded in NJ) featuring all of your favorite Richard Shindell songs ... and a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s
"Fourth Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)".
Robert Randolph & The Family Band - Live At The Wetlands (Family Band)
Jeff says:Robert is a young man (24 y/o) from Maplewood NJ. He is the pedal steel guitar player in THE WORD. The music of Robert Randolph is more than just one man playing a pedal steel guitar. It is more than just a band, a family, on stage engulfing its audience with intense jams. It is a unique style and a new genre of music altogether. Hearing it for the first time, you get the feeling of meeting someone for the first time and knowing instantly you've met a lifelong friend. They’re supposed to be opening for Dave Matthews at Madison Square Garden in April ... as an unsigned band.
