LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

O ne of Jazz's elder practitioners, Benny Waters passed away recently. At the age of 96, Waters was still entertaining audiences with his beautiful saxophone while sharing his knowledge along the way with many budding musicians. Ron Wynn takes a look at the lives of Waters, guitarist Tal Farlow, and vocalist Johnny Adams in "Final Refrain."

Loud and proud, the mighty Swamp Dogg proselytizes on staying in character as a means to achieving true artistic success. Even if that puts him on the FBI's unAmerican list or gets him blackballed within the industry, he'll take the abuse to keep on keeping on. More in "Dog Soldier."

Many profiles this week including Plush's Liam Hayes, The Afro-Cuban All Stars, Lounge Lizards' John Lurie, and Ferron. Also, a look at Janet Jackson's live show and reviews of the latest releases from Son Volt and Julie Ruin (Kathleen Hanna, formerly of Bikini Kill).
