Allison Scull, a former folk-singer who has taken a decidedly jazzy turn, has been singing, composing and playing guitar most of her adult life. She met Victor Martin, a jazz saxophonist, vocalist and arranger, a few years ago when he was invited to play in her one-girl band. Together they created a union of musical forms uniquely their own, blending the sounds 0f jazz, folk, Latin, blues and R&B in original material and classic standards, putting an entirely new twist on contemporary music. As they performed together throughout the West Coast, their respective styles have joined to create a new sound leaning more toward a roots/jazz style. The duo has shared the stage with the Blind Boys of Alabama, Tuck and Patti, Acoustic Alchemy and blues legend John Hammond.

"Lost time is not found again." This ancient idiom is at the heart of the brothers Alvin's long, tumultuous relationship. However, in Dave's own words, "Sometimes fate, or God, or the universe gives you a rare chance to prove an old saying is wrong." The brothers' new album, appropriately tiffed' "Lost Time," does just that. Like their previous album, "Common Ground: Dave Alvin & Phil Alvin Play and Sing the Songs of Big Bill Broonzy," "Lost Time" pays tribute to the brothers' influences, with songs by blues forebears, including Lead Belly, Oscar Brown Jr., Blind Boy Fuller and Big Joe Turner. "Their encyclopedic knowledge of American music, expansive musical vocabulary and the fluency with which the Alvins slip in out and of genres and eras is what enables their versions of these songs to triumph," remarks the Green River Times. "Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin may have set out to honor the legacy of their musical heroes with these Our from iff tncy on The AIvins, brothers Phil and Theatre in Quincy on Sept. 30. recordings, but in the process, they solidified their own as one of roots music's most exceptional duos." The Alvin Brothers grew up in a music-loving family where they were exposed to a variety of musical styles. "The Blasters (the cult-favorite band they formed in 1979) always stood out, thanks to their love of classic blues and rockabilly, Dave Alvin's stinging guitar playing and older brother Phil's distinct voice, an instrument that evoked singers from decades before his time," writes Dan Nailen of the Salt Lake City Weekly, Dave says about his brother's work on "Lost Time," Phil has done some amazing vocals back in our time together in The Blasters, but this (new) stuff overall is just, 'Ho, wow.' And I think some of that 'Ho, wow' spirit carries over ... because he's sort of leading the band, and en Dave, perform at the Town Hall Photo submitted the intensiBr of how the musicians are playing is all based around his voice. He pulled it off. He got up the hill through the rattlesnakes." In this incarnation of their musical partnership, fans don't get The Blasters, but they do get something that recalls a bit of the wild fun that band knew how to conjure. The brothers and their band clearly know how to make this music rock, and this is a modest triumph for one of roots rock's most fascinating partnerships.

Tickets are still available at Plumas Arts Gallery, Quincy Natural Foods and online, at Plumas Arts anticipates that the show will be sold out the week before the event.
