LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

L ooking for something to get you into that holiday spirit? Tucson Weekly's Stephen Seigel gives us a rundown of music to lift the spirits in "Soundbites."

Two new labels are developing their jazz rosters using different methods, but with the same goal; getting them heard. Nashville Scene's Ron Wynn brings us the story in "For The Record."

Album reviews this week include a look at 10 new live recordings, three new "Prince of Egypt"-related releases, Metallica, Garth Brooks, Afghan Whigs, Cry Cry Cry, comedian Rodney Carrington, Elvis Costello & Burt Bacharach, and more in Mini-Reviews.

Profiles feature down home blues artists Hosea Hargrove and Matthew Robinson, as well as Tejano great Manuel "Cowboy" Donley.
