    Lionel Hampton, 19082002 - After 75 Years Onstage, a Well-Earned Rest

    Putting aside the probability that in the fullness of time every musician, from Palestrina to Perry Como, will be looked upon as a precursor of rock and roll, in the instance of Lionel Hampton the claim has much validityindeed, it's surprising to di...

    Irony is Hell

    I'm just a writer of simple record reviews. I read The New York Times, but I'm not sure I can tell you the difference between the Hives and the Vines. Actually, my reviews aren't simple, and even if they were I'd have to make them appear complicated,...

    Blood Feast Party Tonight

    The Avengers never amassed a large discography, so it's nice that New York Rel-X are willing to do the extra work for them. In addition to citing the pioneering West Coast band as a major influence on their own sing-along anthems of disaffection, the...

    New Shapes and Colors

    The charm and potential doom of Coldplay is singer Chris Martin's great, sorry voice that's always trying to embrace its own nature. He has plain eyes and Eskimo-carved cheekbones. "God gave me style and gave me grace," he sings now. He moans. He smi...

    What Gaul?

    Hyped as the herald of a post-punk "neo-realist" movement to revive the pre-WW II chanson, Luaka Bop's latest compilation instead offers a fascinating glimpse at an unplugged alternative scene that barely nods to the soap-operatic "realist" tradition...
