    How do you experience a year? Can a person ever shed his innate subjectivity and perceive or appreciate something on a different level than he would a warm, fuzzy sweater, a pork chop, or a long car trip? It doesn't really matter; nobody's going to p...

    Close to the bone - Tom House's backwoods sound carries essential sparks

    The chorus is delivered with a sing-songy cadence that sounds almost like a nursery rhyme; the voice, accompanied by mandolin and acoustic guitar, is so utterly country in its inflections, it could pass for backwoods--sharp and nasal: alleluia c...

    Yuletide resuscitation - Big Iron comes back for another round

    Christmas is a time for gentle reflection on good times past--and perhaps even the wiping away of a nostalgic tear, so the cover of Honkey-Tonk Holidays (Christmas in Deep Noellum) is particularly poignant: now-passed nightspot Naomi's, all aglow wit...

    Prometheus unbound - The boxed set of Charles Mingus' Atlantic years
