    Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra

    As one of the most prolific composers of his generation, Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington wrote, throughout his long career, movie soundtracks (Otto Preminger's 1959 Anatomy of a Murder is a great example), classical scores, and many tunes that are no...

    The Bravery

    Mainstream indie rock may seem like a contradiction in terms, but that hasn't stopped The Bravery from winning over new fans. Hailed as "the next big thing" by MTV and the popular music press after the release of its 2005 self-titled debut, the band ...

    Magic Bullets

    Magic Bullets' bouncy New Wave pop (often sung with an affected British accent) sounds like a lot like Echo & the Bunnymen, but this San Francisco sextet puts its own spin on things. For example, the song "Spent Nights," from the group's 2006 debut, ...

    Proto-metal gods Blue Cheer are making a racket as if it were 1967 all over again

    Even as Haight was serving up a summer of love in 1967, something darker was brewing in the Bay. Not Altamont, which was still a couple of years away, but Blue Cheer -- a thunderous blues act that delved into the shadowy corners of psychedelia rather...

    Maroon 5 recalls jamming with Prince and figures out how to balance his influences

    In 2002, Maroon 5 released Songs About Jane, which went on to sell something like a bajillion copies around the world. Consequently, the band hit the road for so many years that it didn't have time to record anything other than live albums until this...

    Joe Jackson - Rain (Rykodisc)

    The first two lines on Joe Jackson's new album are: "Hey, can you hear me now, as I fade away and lose my ground? Maybe you'd like to know what I'd have to say, if I was still around." Are the words merely song lyrics or is ol' Joe wryly commenting o...

    Leon Russell

    Southern-fried piano swamp funk doesn't get better than Leon Russell. His greasy R&B cadges a hopping, Delta blues stomp, fueled by his gravelly croak and his percussive pounding at the piano. Russell left Tulsa for L.A. at 16. There, he learned guit...
