Former The Police guitarist Andy Summers Music spoke with us about his adventurous new solo album, pushing himself on his instrument and why he used a South Park guitar strap on the Police reunion tour.
Rock and roll was Chuck Berry's own creation and not an interpretation of someone else's traditions, so he pursued it with a passion that made him rock's first true poet laureate and its first guitar hero. Editor Mark Deming pays tribute to the departed pioneer.
If Brian Wilson invented California, I must insist that Chuck Berry did something even more remarkable: he invented America. And he did it without having to create a soft-focus fantasy, but by discovering a streamlined poetry in the details...
Leonard Rueden Right on!

Kim Ditzler I wonder what they did with his ding a ling
Of all the early breakthrough rock & roll artists, none is more important to the development of the music than Chuck Berry.
Joseph Mancebo I used to listen to his music when I was younger, I also enjoyed singing them at a karaoke venue.....so sad.....gonna miss him dearly.
George Fisherman Sad day.Saw Chuck live in Toronto many years ago,he drove onstage in a white Cadillac with a gorgeous blonde driver while drinking a beer. One of a kind often copied never duplicated R.I.P.

The stalwart bluesman put together a lengthy, celebrated career, from his beginnings as a student of Sonny Boy Williamson to his big break as Muddy Waters' harmonica player to his peak in the 1970s as a notoriously high-energy bandleader.
Insatiable showman, blues singer, and ace harp-man kept his high-energy act alive for over a half century.
Jac van Beek Le Hibou Ottawa in the 1960s-powerful performance that had him playing outdoors for the folks waiting for the next show. I can still hear and see the astonishment on the faces. Legendary bluesman.
Thomas A. Snyder We lost another giant of the blues. Rip sir.
Phil Abbate Master of high compression chromatic harp sucking.
Bill Petryshyn Craig Thompson you bought him a beer !

With his debut solo album, the in-demand collaborator Sampha (Drake, Kanye, Frank Ocean, Beyonce) made a very strong case for himself as a performer in his own right. Check out our review of his album, 'Process,' among others, in our Editors' Choice section.
The R&B producer, artist and songwriter enjoyed a lengthy career, writing songs for Michael Jackson, Ike & Tina Turner, Marvin Gaye, the Isley Brothers, the Four Tops, Quincy Jones and many more, in addition to releasing his own albums.
By 1978, Parliament-Funkadelic had kicked into top gear, partly thanks to the contributions of the recently-passed Junie Morrison as keyboardist and musical director, while songs from Rick James, Chic and Earth, Wind & Fire also made '78 a strong year for R&B.
The microphones may not have always worked and Adele may have needed a second take on her George Michael tribute, but regardless of the telecast's triumphs and shortcomings, here...

A smooth crooner with a flair for scat singing, vocal icon Al Jarreau has released jazz, pop, and R&B records across four decades, winning seven Grammy awards in the process.
Gustavo Aparicio Ces Aparicio Como dije, este va a ser un muy mal año para la música. Al Jarreau, cantante de smooth jazz, soul y R6B. Su tema más conocido Moonlightning de la serie de los '80, Luz de luna (Moonlighting), la serie que catapultó a la fama a Bruce Willis.
De los últimos en cultivar un agradable estilo jazz/soul/R&B antes que derivara en la basura pop/hip-hopera que es hoy, con esos sonidos, incluídas las voces, tan artificiales y repetidos hasta el hartazgo por todos y cada uno de los "artistas".
Niklas Hidenius I played a few Al Jarreau songs this morning 🙁 RIP
Dennis Solis Morales Sad, we've been losing great musical and movie artists here and there. RIP Al. Joseph
Felix Garcia Nogue Impresionantes álbumes a mediados de los 80 con incursiones electrónicas dentro de melodías Jazz like "High Crime"
Njabulo Ngcobo My heart is broken.... untimely passing of a "man with an orchestra in his mouth"...so sad😞😞😞
Jeff C. Suehiro One of the great singers of jazz! May Music follow You in Heaven..
Barbara Fergus Oh I remember Al Jarreau. RIP.
Eric Michael Washington Listening and grieving
Brian Steen A true talent, gone.
Brian McKinstray Good night Al - no one could vocalise like you..

One of the most in-demand bassists in music, Nathan East still found time to record his second solo album, 'Reverence,' featuring guest spots from Chick Corea, Kirk Whalum, Ruben Studdard and Philip Bailey, plus a freshly-unearthed, 25-year-old track starring Eric Clapton and Phil Collins.
While Keane slumbers, frontman Tom Chaplin comes back from the dark side with his debut solo album, 'The Wave.' We talked with him about the good times, the bad times, and jumping into the chilly English Channel for his album cover.
