    Best Local Label - Ascetic Records

    Hieu Nguyen and Matt Snell launched Ascetic in 2001 because, according to Nguyen, "there have been so many cool labels that have supported so many good bands, we just wanted to do the same." In a relatively short time, the label has put out ten relea...

    Best Jam Band - Naked Groove

    "Ass" is a difficult concept to grasp. It's not that people don't understand its ramifications; more likely, they're not willing to accept the fact that ass is a common denominator in many of the things in life that are good. They think it's a nasty ...

    Best Noise Band - Brain Transplant

    Much like guacamole-flavored potato chips, the music of Brain Transplant don't hardly make no sense to regular folk. You can try to stuff the pigeon into the hole, but you're just going to end up with a mess of blood, feathers and splintered bone. Ac...

    Best Blues Artist - Bennie Smith

    There was a time, long ago, when blues guitar was about simplicity and soul instead of Stevie Ray Vaughan wankery. We might not remember that period, but Bennie Smith does. Smith played with luminaries such as Chuck Berry and Ike and Tina Turner as t...

    Best Jazz Artist - John Norment

    Some jazz musicians stay inside, expertly navigating the changes while inventing fresh new melodies on the spot. Others go outside, discarding the boundaries of harmony and stretching music into pure sound with a restless yearning to grab the whole w...

    Best Lounge Act - Tony Viviano

    "Hi, folks, how you doing? Good to see you. Come on in, there's a table right over there. And now, I'd like to do one of my very favorite songs. This one goes out to all you couples out there." Defined in our imagination by the artistry of Sinatra, B...

    Best Jazz Radio Program - Jazz with Bob Parlocha WSIE (88.7 FM)

    Whether you're driving home from work or a gig or a date along a near-deserted highway, propelled by an urgent walking bass and ride cymbal, or sitting in a third-floor walkup lamenting lost love to the moody musings of a tenor sax, the hours after m...

    The Kids Aren't Alright - Drugs could have saved the world from Black, Black Ocean

    Drugs have always been linked to mutations and advancements in popular music. Take pot. As early as 1909, the use of marijuana by jazz musicians in New Orleans' red-light district enabled band members to ignore the fatigue brought on by long hours of...

    Clean Living - Chris Duarte has kicked addiction, but he still has the blues

    The comparisons were immediate: Chris Duarte was the new Stevie Ray Vaughan. The latter had been dead for four years when Duarte's first proper album appeared in 1994, and fans of the late blues giant were still looking for a suitable replacement. Du...

    Donna the Buffalo - Wednesday, September 24; Mississippi Nights

    When Donna the Buffalo performs at Mississippi Nights next Wednesday, it's entirely possible the band won't play a single song from their most recent release, Wait 'Til Spring. If they do, the songs won't sound anything like the recorded versions. Th...

    Cave-In - Sunday, September 21; Mississippi Nights

    Cave-In is a stellar band, both literally and metaphorically. By taking the crunchy aggression of metal and the melody of emo, adding textures and tricks and then turning the whole thing inside out, they have created a unique yet recognizable sound. ...

    Elizabeth McQueen with the Jeff Lazaroff Band - Friday, September 19; Off Broadway

    Music geeks are so easy. Yeah, we sit in the corner and scoff at mainstream American males for worshipping fake-breasted blondes for their looks alone. But put a non-threatening pixie with cat-eyed glasses and a guitar on stage, and watch the guys in...

    June Carter Cash - Wildwood Flowers (Dualtone)

    Appleseed Cast - Two Conversations (Tiger Style)

    Ah, that precious post-alternative gunk, anthems penned by soft boys with bright eyes and dashboard confessionals on their minds: emo. Emotional. Evocative. Derivative. Emo. Whereas there were originators like Sunny Day Real Estate's Jeremy Enigk, wh...

    My Morning Jacket - It Still Moves (ATO Records)

    On its third full-length and first for a major label, Louisville, Kentucky's My Morning Jacket mostly keeps to its formula for country-fried rock, dirty barroom riffs and leisurely paced acoustic folk. Lead singer Jim James's reverb-drenched vocals a...

    David Bowie - Reality (ISO/Columbia)

    Jeff Buckley - Live at Sin- (Columbia)

    The late Jeff Buckley (1966-1997) was a singularly amazing vocalist -- a trait shared with his father, avant-folk troubadour Tim Buckley (1947-1975). Like his dad, Buckley could purr like a jungle cat, sigh like a Delta bluesman, improvise like a jaz...
