    Ragged Glory

    It took him a few months, but Neil Young, curveball artist, is pitching for peace, freedom, and all that good stuff in the wake of the attacks on America. Per his tradition, he's also shaking off the signs and offering his own brand of remembrance. A...

    Afrobeatpusherman Tony Allen does more with a hi-hat than most drummers do with an entire kit. On January 15 at the Knitting Factory, the first of his Afrobeat 2000 quartet's four U.S. shows, he guided the group through a plethora of tempos and gro...

    Spelunking and Crooning in 2001 - Reissues by the Boxful, Singers by the Cut

    Reissues and reclamation projects are the oxygen in which jazz, as a living art, breathes. They are the classics, benchmarks, standards, soul, and history of the music. They are proof that an improvised art can defy time; an excuse or demand for re-e...

    Kings of New York

    By all rights they should not be so confident. Not now. Just one week after the tragic events of September 11, in this city where uncertainty has been the daily manna of a shaken citizenry. But in the skyscraper home of Roc-A-Fella records, cocky ass...

    If there was a Black goth planet in some parallel universe, Busta Rhymes would be its evil emperor: the person who, in an MTV remake of The Defiant Ones (The Real Defiant Ones?), you'd handcuff to Marilyn Manson. In a recent Q&A, Busta hails M&M as a...

    Sure of Everything They Do The last time Mission of Burma played New York was their final show, in 1983, and by all accounts a miserable experience. At the time, they were a cult item, barely known outside of Boston; since then, they've become Ame...

    Come on Back Eileen

    Where did all the happy rock and roll go? When did mainstream rock stop being clever and sexy and open? In a world where every musical style is a mouse click away, why must it close off so many possible sound colors and expression shades? Even the be...

    Insofar as popular music improves when something is "at stake," to cite the existentialist clich, it was structurally foreordained that in the Age of Britney, Pink and Shakira can make albums that feel riskier than, say, the Unknown Prophets' or the...

    So Stank, So Clean

    OutKast is the first hip-hop act to notice that the old-school epithet "funky fresh" is an oxymoronthe shock of the new bearing a whiff of the old. That was the idea behind Stankonia, a de facto tribute album that was every bit as original as the Ge...

    The Bridge Is Still Over

    Every once in a while I tune in to the Zulu Nation station in my mind and hear my version of hip-hop. It's kinda old school, louder then a bomb, and tougher then leather. But instead of Big Bank Hank's yes-yes-y'all's, someone's dropping Rakim's scie...
