    Pharoah Sanders

    Pharoah Sanders Black Unity Impulse IN THE LATE '60s, free jazz threw melody and funkiness out the window--sort of. After yawling his way to notoriety on John Coltrane's free-form grail, Ascension, tenor saxophonist Pharoah Sanders experiment...

    Nout of This World - All Tomorrow's Parties: We epitomize a revolutionary hip-hop scene.

    HIP HOP 1: two turntables and a microphone. The name of the band is the X-ecutioners (formerly X-Men). Their ass-tight groove is midtempo, fluid, and organ-soaked (Wu-lite fresh, you might say). Their MC speaks the lyrics as if they were written on...

    Teenage Kicks

    CARL CRACK PLAYS in a pop band, but he talks like a revolutionary. It's 11 a.m. and he has a post-gig hangover, so it's a little too early for him to talk politics. Yet, within minutes, the Berlin-bred rave punk launches into propaganda in a freake...

    Miles Ahead

    IN THE '50s, Miles Davis played it straight in a double-breasted suit, his crisp collar whitened by a silk tie. By the cool, brooding '60s, he'd slipped into pleated pants, open collars, and loose loafers. Pastel platform shoes, handkerchiefs, head...

    Morrissey Maladjusted (Mercury) DOES ANYONE STILL give a fig about Morrissey? Five years ago he filled the Hollywood Bowl (twice). Now, at 38, a string of sublimely bad solo records behind him, Brit pop's Sylvia-Plath-in-drag is only a bit mo...
