  2. This album isn’t really considered a masterpiece by most fans but I cherish this recording—it often shows up on my desert island list. For many years this was only one of two early Taj records available on cd so I wore out a few copies since then and I am still waiting on a proper reissue of both on cd (the other being Mo Roots). It is fair to say that Giant Step wouldn’t have been the album I would have gravitated toward had more of his catalog been available in the 1990s, as it has no immediate hook (I would have probably worn out Natch’l Blues or the debut instead). Upon first listen I can’t say any tracks stood out to me—perhaps Fishin’ Blues made the most impact. But as it turned out, this being about all you could get of early, non-best-of compilation Taj, it got played a lot and as a result became my favorite of all his records. This album sort of stands on its own, not sounding exactly like his earlier, more bluesy records nor the reggae-world-caribbean albums that followed. But its got a little funk, a good bit of country-blues, and a lot of laid back rock ‘n’ roll typical of the stuff being made in Southern California in the late 60s/early 70s. And if you’re a Jesse Ed fan this recording is a real treat.
  3. Great site and also concept is also nice one. But too slow to load pages, even on broadband. However, patience is a virtue and will be rewarded by excellent material.The website is constantly updated with news about world music, as well as excellent video clips from artists such as Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Tinariwen.
  4. Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Bryce Avary is the sole man behind The Rocket Summer, whose first record was released at the tender age of 16. The Texas native established a strong local fan base, leading to this, his first major recording and is now on the Warped Tour in America. This will be followed by a support slot of a North American jaunt with The Academy Is.Allover is osum and the Rocket Summer is the rock solo-project of Stephen Bryce Avary who is based in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. Avary is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and producer. He writes and produces every song on his records, as well as plays every instrument on them.
