    Hungry and Weird

    Since the 1969 release of Trout Mask Replica, the artist dubbed Captain Beefheart has incarnated the gold standard by which "weirdness" in rock has been calibrated. And with a suitcase like that to lug around, no wonder Don Van Vliet put out his 12th...

    All Souled Out

    When The Harry Smith Connection, a "live tribute" to The Anthology of American Folk Music, came out last year, I missed Souled American. The Anthol-ogy is a document of 'the old weird America," Greil Marcus says, but a live tribute can't help un- wei...

    Diddily-Dee

    The "heavy" in Dwight "Heavy D" Myers's stage moniker has always stood for more than the rapper's size, so why shouldn't it be the title of his new CD? When Andre Harrell (himself an ex-rapper) first dared to step away from executive ranks at Def Jam...

    Cheap Thrills - Freedom's Just Another Word for MP3

    "MP3" is as scary a buzzword in the music business as "blank tape" was 20 years ago, meaning that while the big moneymakers are trying to figure out how to stuff the genie back in the bottle, there's already a culture thriving on it. The major labels...

    Prisoners of the Past

    Midway through the week, the JVC Jazz Festival kicked into life at a sedate homage to Charlie Parker's romance with strings, when the featured soloist, James Moody, bounded into an exultant "Cherokee," shaking off the ensemble like a great swan beati...

    The least thing a critic can do is complain about how this summer's songs are just like last summer's, or some summer 35 years ago when the world sparkled and we all lived in a utopia of the new. It's not just that there are new songs (there are). Or...
