    Zooids New and Old - Cures for the Twilight Zone

    Schoenberg warned a century ago, during that twilight zone between Wagner and Stravinsky, that the tempered scale was used upits melodies worn out, its thematic variations a close-order drill going nowhere. Of course, jazz proved him dead wrong by r...

    Some Guys Are Only About . . . Its tourist trade as Big Apple Americana notwithstanding, jazz no longer keeps a finger on the pulse of New York in the way that pedestrian hip-hop or sardonic grad-school pop can. With their music short on hipster c...

    One Time, at Band Camp

    "Now, ladies and gentlemen," the MC says, "we come with one of the more soulful sounds from around our town." It's a snippet born for a Pete Rock interlude, except that the line, dropped about halfway through the new compilation Schoolhouse Funk: Lab...

    Grammytanamera - Pour Azcar! on Me

    Latinos rarely need an excuse to don their best threads and party. And as last week's first annual Latin Grammy Awards in L.A. proved once again, we do it with sabor. Having cashed in my frequent-flyer miles to mingle with the Latinrati on the left...

    Ecleftic Ladyland

    Ever have a bright idea, a 1000-watt bulb so blazin that it inevitably slides into the collective consciousness of pop culture? Even if the brainstorm was a somewhat obvious eventuality, it probably pissed you off more than a little when it publicly ...

    Dancehall Daze - Toasters Catch Fire, Burn Down Wall

    Reggae dancehall discovered before hip-hop that a turntable and mike-rocker can be as potent as the conventional spectacle of vocalist, background singers, and band framedand therefore certified as entertainmentby a proscenium arch. But it took hip...

    Afropop Worldwide

    Once or twice a year I spend a few weeks comparing and contrasting the latest cache of Afropop, but rarely do so many good ones fall into place simultaneously. I don't promise there aren't more in store, either. Still, this should hold you. B...

    Make Do With Grin

    When I was nine years old the two comedy singers who vied for my smile were Allan Sherman and Tom Lehrer. Lehrer's got a box set on Rhino (The Remains of Tom Lehrer), but I'll talk a bit about Sherman first, since the two make an interesting contrast...
