Kelly Joe Phelps' new album titled Sky Like A Broken Clock (Rykodisc) is due to hit the streets on July 10. Please take a moment to read some of the kudos Kelly has won in the past alongside a pre-release review of the new album from the U.K. The new album is Kelly's first to enlist accompanying musicians, and he's chosen Larry Taylor (Tom Waits' band) on string bass and Billy Conway (Morphine) on drums.

“(Kelly is) a self-contained, flesh-and-blood music machine..." -- Entertainment Weekly

“It seems his fingers have their own tireless spirit guides." -- Pulse!

“Phelps goes pretty deep inside to come up with stuff this rare. It is highly personal, unpretentious and wholly affecting music." -- Jazz Times

“His songs of faith, with their purring accompaniment, sound refreshing even as they raise the banner of tradition." -- Boston Phoenix

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
