    Pop Jazz Masters

    Before there was Najee's Theme, there was the soul/groove jazz movement of the 1960s and 1970s, and the light-contemporary jazz era of the 1970s and 1980s. Check out these albums by artists who influenced and in some cases defined smooth jazz. More j...

    Son of Jack - Kerouac-inspired, Austin-based Guy Forsyth trips out in Americana dream

    Kamikaze Rap - Public Enemy's Chuck D. speaks

    Is "old school" an attitude or style? If it were a style, then the most commercially successful rapper today would fit the description. Puff Daddy does with retro hits what an old-school artist like Afrika Bambaataa used to do with, at the time, hits...
