    Wynton in Wranglers

    The Long Haul

    The word is traction. Silkworm and the Glands are indie rock to the gut: Both could have sprung out of the fertile crescent in Pavement's Slanted and Enchanted where Stephen Malkmus sings, "lies and betrayals, fruit-covered nails, electricity and lus...

    Third Annual Real-Life Consumer Guide

    Good news: CD prices this year are no higher, and maybe a little lower, than last year. We shopped for 15 likely stocking stuffers at three local stores and two Web sites, and found there is no one cheapest place to buy every item. Online, we tried P...

    Getting Bizzy

    Finally, one of those fall bonanzas the biz is always promising. The two Pick Hits are among the year's very best, and several runners-up are truly choice. Beyond OutKast, that's not to predict that any of them will get as bizzy as the biz prefers, ...

    Large and in Charge

    Paul Simon has an image you wouldn't wish on a real estate developer. At the Radio City Gore-Lieberman benefit in September, he alone in a platinum-studded lineup used his own musicians instead of Paul Shaffer's crew. Arguably, the polyrhythms of "La...

    Hip-Hoperation: Mindcrime

    A decade ago, when Del the Funky Homosapien was still spelling his name funee, his cousin Ice Cube drafted him as point man for a mid-gangsta-age P-Funk revival and piled more George Clinton-copyrighted hooks on Del's first album than a too-goofy-for...

    Pretty Snide (For Some Orange Guys)

    Orange County, California: 800 square miles of white people, wedged in between L.A. and San Diego. Hardly punk rock central, from the looks of it: The land behind the Orange Curtain is a strip of beach backed up by a freeway-ridden patchwork of offic...

    Where the Action Isnt

    Alt-rock may be alive and well, but not so's bashing it is much fun right now. Though many alt bands were considered for Turkey Shoot 2000, only one proved offensive enough to decapitate. Even artistically, the rock action is mostly on the pop charts...

    Did You Hear Sonny Rollins? - The One Youve Been Waiting For

    Last August, at Lincoln Center Plaza, 70-year-old Sonny Rollins gave one of the most exhilarating, inspired, go-for-broke, don't-look-back performances I have ever seen. OK, I've probably written something like that before, but having missed maybe th...

    Eggs and Elephants - Henry Gwiazda Paints a Surreal World of Sounds and Shapes

    CINCINNATIChimes ring like a doorbell, but with the wrong interval. You hear crunching noises, and then seagulls, though you don't see any animal life at all. Instead, you see a gigantic egg arising from a calm sea. A moment of jazz drumming erupts,...
