    A Quartet of Five - Dave Brubeck Cultivates a Crowd, Calibrates Time, and Finds His Wings

    No postwar jazz musician has cultivated his audience like Dave Brubeck. His success has Pavlovian dimensions. The simultaneous release of Double Live From the USA and UK (Telarc), a lively two-CD set drawn from 1995 and 1998 concerts, and the long-de...

    If your musical interests extend beyond the industrialized world, you're sure to run into field recordings sooner or later. But that doesn't mean you have to like them. Field recordings are for scholars, obsessives, eccentrics, obscurantists, and pse...

    Heal Thyself During an exhilarating performance by Colombia's Aterciopelados ("The Velvety Ones") at Bowery Ballroom on May 1, folksy-voiced frontwoman Andrea Echeverri dedicated "Chamnico" to the shamans of the Putumayo region in her country. A ...

    Belgian techno, a style that sprang up in an area called Flanders that's hardly bigger than Connecticut, still survivesflourishes, even 15 years after it began. Case in point: Lords of Acid's Farstucker, a CD dark and woozy, hard and scrawny, a bit...

    As the name suggests, there's only one infant messiah in Destiny's Child, and Survivor (note singular) is for all purposes the inevitable first solo record from the young lady with the omnipotent dad and the Astrodome-sized persecution complex. Beyon...

    Alias in Wonderland - Buffalo Gals and Mustang Sallys

    In 1972, a singer named Mary McCaslin flushed Hollywood and headed into a West she'd seen only from airplanes. A damn folkie in the Age of Dick (Nixon) and Quaaludes, she carried a notebook, a guitar, hard-won studio expertise, and a hard-fed appetit...

    If the music industry had a sense of humor, next year's Grammy for Most Ironic Cover Version would go to Run DMC's "Let's Stay Together." With r&b crooners Jagged Edge doing their best to ape Al Green, Run dedicates the opening rap to D: "You, Jay, a...

    For the record, I am not a true believer in "underground" hip hop. If anything (see Black Eyed Peas), I'm a bit of a skeptic. But nowhere near as much a skeptic as hip hoppers of every sect and affiliation. Boy does good stuff surface once you start ...

    It Came From Jersey When a show is billed as "all ages," and you've just squeezed through the Roseland lobby past a gaggle of chaperoned 10-year-olds, that sort of tempers the appeal of seeing a woman getting fucked onstage with a power drill. At ...

    Credo in Unum Tonum - Why Was Beyond Words Different From All Other New York Concerts?
