By Jacob Stringer
POSTED // Jan 23,2008 - As anyone who sucks our inversion-laden air already knows, a sizeable chunk of Salt Lake City’s historic downtown recently has succumbed to the wrecking ball of progress. What may be news is that one helluva museum—with a fluid footprint extending...

By Jacob Stringer

Four on the Floor

Music: Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood get it together (again) on Out Louder.

By Jacob Stringer
POSTED // Aug 22,2007 - Guitarist John Scofield has done his time in the jazz world. In fact, if he were the bragging type, which he’s not, Scofield could easily bury you neck-deep by name-dropping all the legendary musicians he has worked with over the years. Even though...

Forward Progress

Dance: Ririe-Woodbury alums build Momentum with a little help from their friends.

By Jacob Stringer
POSTED // Aug 22,2007 - Umbrella titles for multichoreographer dance concerts often have little or no relevance to the actual collection of works. Momentum, on the other hand, actually does seem to fit the bill. An evening of modern dance independently produced by a trio of...

By Jacob Stringer
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - It’s while walking up to the new downtown digs of the Paul Green School of Rock that I first get a taste of what it’s all about. Emanating from within, I can make out the reverberations of Pink Floyd’s The Wall, and initially it sounds...

The Secret Machines don’t want to zap you out of the moment, ever.

By Jacob Stringer
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - It really is no secret. So many bands these days stumble, hard, when trying to take their overproduced, canned studio sound out onto the great open road—consider vocal-track “mishaps” on live TV and such. For the Secret Machines, the...

Junkie Love

The Cowboy Junkies tackle the darkest dark of despair with a “reverse tour.”

By Jacob Stringer
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - In the pop music of here-today-gone-tomorrow, there are few bands that have an unwavering air of both legitimacy and longevity. Even fewer have siblings as bandmates while retaining that same character. Oasis is disastrously attempting it again, the Corrs...

Jazz & Jams

John Scofield reaches out to the jam-band kids with his own “funky fusion.”

By Jacob Stringer
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - It’s been a varied career for John Scofield. As with most jazz musicians, standing on those large shoulders that came before him was, at the time, what it justly was all about. This is true because jazz is an art form with old-school-style apprenticeship...
