One of THE great jazz quartets of all time: Coltrane (tenor & soprano), McCoy Tyner (piano), the earth-shaking Elvin Jones (drums) and Steve Davis (bass, though 'Trane's band would most often feature Jimmy Garrison and sometimes Reggie Workman), playing a blues-inspired program of originals. This band had an empathy shared by only the best bands in jazz: the Brubeck and Miles Davis groups, the Modern Jazz Quartet–and it shows here, with warmth, confidence, economy and relaxed interplay.

]Toronto-band Diemonds' album "The Bad Pack" speeds out of the gate like a bike out of hell, trailing fire and smoke, and doesn't stop to catch its breath until it's all over with the final track. From start to finish, Diemonds plays it fast, hard, dirty, and rough. Diemonds combine live theatrics and the antics of bands like Guns N' Roses, Mötley Crüe, and Motörhead, with lyrics that speak to the outcasts, wild childs, and misfits.

Amy has the voice of an angel and plays the guitar like the devil! A chance meeting with, at the time, fellow Phoenix resident Michael Schenker (UFO, Scorpions, MSG) became the catalyst for her long overdue step into the limelight.

Warbringer are one of the most promising of the new wave of thrash bands, and on their second album, they're clearly hardened by time spent on the road, ready to crush the listener with a fresh set of high-speed riffs and machine-gun drum fills. This band plays in the old-school thrash style of Exodus and Testament, with none of the progressive intricacy that Metallica brought to the form on …And Justice for All.

Riot Act is the seventh studio album by American rock band Pearl Jam, released on November 12, 2002 through Epic Records. Following a full-scale tour in support of its previous album, Binaural (2000), Pearl Jam took a year-long break. The band then reconvened in the beginning of 2002 and commenced work on a new album. The music on the record featured a diverse sound, including songs influenced by folk, art rock, and experimental rock. The lyrics deal with mortality and existentialism, with much influence from both the political climate after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the accidental death of nine fans during Pearl Jam's performance at the 2000 Roskilde Festival.

It’s hard to be ambivalent about Zooey Deschanel. She’s a polarizing personality, one whose deadpan movie roles and big Bambi eyes are either charming or too cute for their own good. The same can be said for She & Him, a soft rock duo that features Deschanel doing what she does best as a film star: acting utterly adorable alongside a quiet, talented male character. Her co-star in this case is M. Ward, who produces the band's second album and frames Deschanel’s voice with a Spector-sized pile of instruments. Those who already take issue with Zooey’s acting will almost surely pick this record apart – it’s too reminiscent of her cutesy turns in movies like (500) Days of Summer to change many minds – but for fans of retro pop (and Deschanel in general), Volume 2 is a gem. Whether they’re copping the Brill Building sound or resurrecting ‘70s beach-pop, She & Him always seem to have nostalgia on the mind.

On their 3rd album, this Chicago band plays melody-driven hard guitar pop with a crunchy rock energy. The songs have a punky hook-filled flow that rides a spirited surge of melodic power. You can dance, bounce, hum along, play air guitar or just fly around the room in a freak-out of pure fun. This is the kind of music that will make your smile. “Terrible Human Beings” is a perfectly balanced combination of rock ‘n’ roll power and pop accessibility.
