Rhino Electric Band, Guide to the Galaxy (Independent)

Jazz isn’t the first soundtrack you’d necessarily think of while making your initial foray into Douglas Adams’ acclaimed sci-fi absurdist pentalogy of novels, of which “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” […]

Sonny Landreth, Bound by the Blues (Provogue Records)
