    Out Here - Jack Ingram

    Jack Ingram Close enough (Lucky Dog/Sony Nashville) It might not be fair to blame Jack Ingram for such acts as the execrable Pat Green or a thoroughly unoriginal and clichd newcomer like Adam Carroll, but as one of the originators of the ...

    Del McCoury Band

    Del McCoury Band Don't go see Del McCoury just because he cut an album (last year's The Mountain) and toured with Steve Earle. Not that it isn't a fine recommendation, but McCoury's anointment by postmodern country icon Earle is just part of the s...

    Elvis Costello

    Elvis Costello with Steve Nieve It would make more sense if Elvis Costello were coming to Starplex Amphitheatre with a band, any band, rather than just his acoustic guitar and former Attraction Steve Nieve and his piano. It might not be better, but ...

    Mandy Patinkin

    Mandy Patinkin There's a lot to admire about the guy -- and not just that he had the good sense to leave Chicago Hope, only to return when people stopped remembering why it was such a big deal that he left in the first place. Patinkin's probably t...

    Live from New York? - Saturday Night Live and DreamWorks Records team up for two not-ready-for-prime-time compilations

    At the time, no one could have known how important Nirvana's appearance on Saturday Night Live would be, how many bands would form in its wake, how different the world would sound soon after it happened. Nirvana was just another band on the way up th...

    Girl trouble - Rock and roll is still a man's, man's, man's, man's world

    Trees was packed that night, and you couldn't help but wonder whether the club would have been quite so packed if the band on stage, Sleater-Kinney, were made up of three men instead of three women. Drummer Janet Weiss was capable but not great, suff...

    High fidelity - Pavement isn't breaking up. It's just learning how to grow old together.

    Terror Twilight, Pavement's fifth full-length album, is a hard record to get a fix on. Scott Kannberg, Pavement's guitarist, is having problems explaining it himself. Over breakfast in a restaurant near his home in Berkeley, he's doing his best. "Par...

    Absolute Smash - Or: Sometimes, writing A Hit Single is as easy as it looks

    By all rights, Smash Mouth should have come and gone by now, one-hit wonders saddled up on their one-trick pony and headed into the dimming sunset. "Walkin' on the Sun" -- with its cheese-log Farfisa beat and British-Invasion-by-way-of-Southern-Calif...

    Out There - David Bowie

    Scattergun Reflex laughing at a dead man (Laser Trax Records) All too often, bands are defined by recommended-if-you-like comparisons, first impressions that stick around long enough to pick up negative connotations. Influences become in...

    Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt

    Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt It's easy to think of Harris and Ronstadt's new Western Wall: The Tucson Sessions as Duo; the only thing missing is Dolly Parton, which is like saying the only thing missing from daylight is the sun. That said, th...

    Still orbiting - Tori Amos goes to venus and back on her new disc, and ends up in Texas

    A friend of mine believes Tori Amos is some sort of cross between the Pied Piper and Frank Sinatra in The Manchurian Candidate. That is, she plants secret buzzwords in her songs that have been helping her recruit an enormous army of young women in th...
