Here’s a classic-rock bill that looks great on paper, but how much do these performers have left these days? While vaguely implying that this might be their last tour, Deep Purple sound surprisingly assured and momentous on their most recent studio release, Infinite, with longtime vocalist Ian Gillan surveying a semi-apocalyptic landscape of Roger Glover’s rumbling bass, Ian Paice’s almost stately demarcations of cymbals and snare, Steve Morse’s hard guitar riffs and Don Airey’s cycling keyboards. Alice Cooper has had only a fitfully engaging solo career since leaving behind his original backup group in the mid-1970s, but there are encouraging signs of his old seedy allure on new record Paranormal, which features a couple of intriguing tracks with his early bandmates. Edgar Winter, meanwhile, remains a reliably flashy and dexterous keyboardist.
