• Torbreck Vineyards
    Torbreck winemaker David Powell crafts wine that reflects the character of Australia's Barossa Valley and are as monumental as any of the world's greatest.
  • Baker Lane
    The Baker Lane Pinot Noir and Syrah Stephen Singer produces combine the best of both the old and new worlds- bold fruit is balanced by an elegant tannin structure, easily identifiable as being from Sonoma.
  • Martian Ranch & Vineyard
    An eclectic grower of grape varietals both esoteric and otherwise... Martian Ranch is a young, biodynamically-farmed vineyard on Alisos Canyon Road in Los Alamos, California, where we take our farming much more seriously than we take ourselves. Planted to Rhône and Iberian grape varieties, the tasting room and winery are presently under construction.
    Italian grape varieties grown in California, beautifully turned into wine by master winemaker Jim Moore. They work with food, don't cost an arm and a leg, have acidity and lower alcohol levels than one might expect. It's wonderful juice that's widely available throughout the USA.
  • Brooks
    Founded in 1998, Brooks is a winery and biodynamically-farmed vineyard in the Willamette Valley that continues to reflect the vision of visionary Portland native Jimi Brooks. General Manager Janie Brooks Heuck and Winemaker Chris Williams have recently announced the commencement of construction of their new winemaking facility in Amity, Oregon.
  • Trombetta Family Wines
    Mother and daughter winemaking team Rickey Trombetta Stancliff and Erica Stancliff make sublime Pinot Noir from the Gap's Crown and Peterson vineyards in Sonoma County.

Currently Playing

  • Miles Davis -

    Miles Davis: Dark Magus: Live At Carnegie Hall [2-CD SET]
    Compellingly pissed-off music that's lluminating and inspiring; sure it's ugly in places and totally improvisational but it keeps drawing me back into its anger and rage (and moments of beauty).

  • Various Artists -

    Various Artists: Memphis Boys - The Story Of American Studios
    Virtually a Memphis Greatest Hits compilation, this ACE records comp of tracks recorded at American Studios has some great tracks sung by singers famous or otherwise. Great CD for long drives.

  • Caesar Frazier -

    Caesar Frazier: Hail Caesar! / '75
    Comp CD of two albums from this relatively unknown Detroit Hammond wizard. Some originals blend with well-chosen covers from his days on Westbound/Eastbound Records. "Hicky Burr" a classic, as good as the original.

  • Isaac Hayes -

    Isaac Hayes: Shaft (Hybid SACD)
    My favorite soundtrack album of all time, sounding even better in SACD format. Great performances and tracks, adding greatly to the vibe of the film. "Cafe Reggio's", "Do Your Thing", and (of course" "Theme From Shaft" are the highlights of this double album.

  • Nicola Conte - Love & Revolution

    Love & Revolution
    Nicola Conte: Love & Revolution

    Conte is making some of the most consistently enjoyable records I've heard lately. This one features some great vocal performances and the band is in fine form. This sounds almost like a continuation of his "Details" record, albeit with some slight personnel changes. Highly recommended.

  • Donald Harrison - Real Life Stories

    Real Life Stories
    Donald Harrison: Real Life Stories

    Talk about an album that grows on you, I don't remember how I ran across this one but I'm happy I did. Great playing (albeit with lots of restraint), the song selection is excellent and it's nicely recorded. Recorded over 10 years ago, it still sounds vital and fresh.
