    Richard Galliano - French Touch (Dreyfus Jazz)

    Rastaman Jazz - Monty Alexander

    A meaningful pause, a soulful piano break, and the sizzle of a hi-hat are all it takes for Monty Alexander's new version of Bob Marley's "Jamming" to make a startling but entirely organic shift from the heavy riddims of Jamaican reggae to the straigh...

    Swinging Addis - Ethiopiques

    In the rich, varied, and bizarre history of African pop music, the absurd tragedy of the Ethiopian pop recording industry stands alone. Less than a decade separates cradle from grave. When 24-year-old Amha Eshete took the gutsy move of founding Amha ...

    The Virtuoso Veloso

    Prominent American musicians wax lyrical over him. In his own country a colleague wrote a tune about him, transforming his name into a verb. Lately it seems that people all across the world have become "Caetano-ized." But for Brazil's Caetano Veloso,...

    Southern-Fried Soul

    Maybe it's because they recorded tough R&B, raunchy blues, and wildcat rockabilly in a city where straight-line honky-tonkers ruled the Nashville nest. Or maybe it's because its staggering roster of talent never cracked the pop charts. Whatever the r...

    Clean and Sober Psychedelia

    Wayne Coyne is no madman. Julian Cope may have fried his brain and come out the other side barely intact, but Coyne (rock's other modern-day psychedelic warrior) makes it a point to soberly lead the Flaming Lips into the studio playground to tweak an...

    Method Men

    The Beta Band fits approximately nowhere. Signed to a label known for spearheading the pop-electronica invasion in America, the band's records feature nary a danceable track. Beta's music bears some resemblance to the hip-hop folk of Beck, but the gr...

    Brian's Kids
