Jam Man [3]
Dave Matthews's appeal is as broad and complex as his band's musical palette -- where pop, rock, funk, and jazz bleed into something surprisingly distinctive.
— Joan Anderman, THE BOSTON PHOENIX
 
Monkey Business [4]
New releases from eccentric Japanese pop savant Cornelius and equally eccentric Beastie Boy Money Mark are all mixed up -- in a good way.
— Matyt Ashare, THE BOSTON PHOENIX
 
The Hunch Is Back [5]
Some real-thing winners from the rough-and-tumble roster of Mississippi's Fat Possum Records hit the road this summer with "The Eye Scratchers and Ball Kickers Tour."
— Tristram Lozaw, THE BOSTON PHOENIX

His Brilliant Career [7]
Ron Wynn on two new Miles Davis reissues.

Sensational Sets [8]
New Orleans jazz recorded by the Atlantic label from the mid-50s to the early '60s has been re-released in a beautiful boxed set called "The Atlantic New Orleans Jazz Sessions."
— Geraldine Wyckoff, GAMBIT WEEKLY
 
Hardcore R&B [9]
Two Mississippi-based labels, Ace Records and Malaco/Waldoxy, are churning out stuff so solid you'd think that none of those slimeball-slick '90s studio R&B rapists had ever been born.
— Dave McElfresh, TUCSON WEEKLY
 


LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T ip to music stars who want to boost their waning careers: get into movies. These days, releasing a strong album will only get you so far. Show up in a high-profile movie like "Sling Blade," and watch your stock soar out of control. It's working for Dwight Yoakam, anyway. Here's what the twangster has to say about it. There's plenty more good reading where that came from -- just scroll down. And get me some of them french-fried pertaters while you're down there.
