    Spicy Proposition

    Young girls played a crucial role in the early success of the Beatles and Elvis Presley. Now, substitute the Spice Girls for either of those rock and roll pioneers, and you're presented with an interesting hypothetical: Could it be that the Spice Gir...

    Being Franks

    With a soft, breathy tone that owes little, if anything, to the legendary likes of Joe Williams, Billy Eckstine, John Hendricks or even Mel Torme, Michael Franks sings like no one else. As a staple of contemporary jazz radio, he draws on an array of ...

    Young and Stylin'

    The two young girls are glued to Brad McCool like family, but as it happens, they are fans of a sort. Waiting for his table at Spanish Flowers, a 24-hour Mexican joint in the Heights, the guitarist doesn't seem to mind the girls' presence as they sta...

    Mind's Ear - Jimmie Vaughan is two albums into a solo career he didn't necessarily want

    Forget, for a moment, his more famous dead brother. Don't make comparisons, and do not buy into the myth that to celebrate one you must tear down the other. Do not think that just because one brother sold hundreds of thousands of albums, and the othe...

    Dave's World

    It's safe to say that the Dave Matthews Band owes the bulk of its tremendous success to the stage. Multicultural grandsons (of a sort) to the Grateful Dead, the band combines a jazzy, jammy feel with distinct world-beat sensibilities, using the live ...

    It was that rare chance to see a completely unscripted rock-and-roll moment -- the type of ugly display most in the audience should remember long after memories of the British Rock Symphony fade. At first, most everyone at the Houston Arena Thea...

    World of Their Own - Carolina retronauts the Squirrel Nut Zippers swing clear of camp

    Perhaps the best way to begin a story about the Squirrel Nut Zippers is to clear up what they aren't. They do not belong to the so-called neo-swing movement that consists of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and other like-styled rockers-turned-zoot-suit-rioters....
