It wasn't too hard to guess that Garth Hudson's long-awaited solo album would be a tour de force; his virtuoso instrumental talents stood out even in that legendary group of musicians known as the Band. What may surprise listeners, however, is the sheer scope of sound on this effort, with Hudson playing an intimidating range of keyboards (including pipe organ), various saxophones, accordion, melodica, and Tarogato. Each track is a sonic adventure, the hapless listener unsure of what lies around the next bend

I can say, Wow! But I’m not really surprised. The Sea To The North is a Garth Hudson solo album from 2001, so it should evoke a wow, even a holy sh. efinitely a, Why doesn’t the ex-Band keyboardist put out solo albums every six months?! This six-song gem features as many musical tastes as can be heard in Hudson’s playing and is as near perfect an album as one could ever wish for. Robbie Robertson said he and his other Band members used to actually pay Garth for lessons when they were backing Dylan, Ronnie Hawkins and the like back in the early days.

The Sea Crest is the band’s early base and the cavernous indoor tennis court area is converted into rehearsal space for them. What others are saying. When Bob Dylan took his travelling caravan of musicians – among them Joan Baez, Roger McGuinn and Mick Ronson – out on the road in autumn 1975, the photographer Ken Regan was on hand to document it all. Now his revealing shots are published in Rolling Thunder: Photographs by Ken Regan. Happy Birthday to the one and only Sister Maud Hudson, seen here with Garth in 1979. Photographer: Ron Krisel).
