Trying out CDs by unfamiliar artists is a little like speed dating. You've got minutes to decide if you're compatible, if you're likely to be in a relationship for the long term, or if you're just ships passing in the night. Or something like that.

Stay tuned for a pop matters that sneaks in discussion of Indy Jazz Fest's final day.
