    Spread the Jam - Medeski, Martin and Wood branch out beyond jazz.

    Medeski, Martin and Wood may record for Blue Note, the most venerable of jazz labels, but the trio's music is practically impossible to describe without using a hyphen: Sometimes it's jazz-soul, sometimes it's jazz-funk, sometimes it's jazz-hip-hop, ...

    Jet Boys - Jets to Brazil is taking off.

    Guitarist/vocalist Blake Schwarzenbach isn't quite sure what to make of the "emo-core supergroup" tag journalists have bestowed upon his new project, Jets to Brazil, but it's safe to say he doesn't much care for it. "I think it's a little ridiculous,...

    Seasoned Performers - Salt-N-Pepa are still capable of spicing up your life.

    Although Sandi Denton, known to members of the hip-hop nation as Pepa, sees no reason why she shouldn't continue to prosper in the rap game for many years to come, she realizes that her thirteen-year-old group, Salt-N-Pepa, is a bit long in the tooth...
