Dean Martin

Quick: name the artist, who (a) knocked the Beatles from the top chart position at the height of Beatlemania; (b) scored a gold record in 2004 with his fastest-selling album ever, which also hit the iTunes Top 5; (c) was worshipped by Elvis Presley; and (d) is heard regularly in the hippest movies, TV shows and commercials. Need another clue? Playboy recently called him "the coolest man who ever lived." Of course that man is Dean Martin. Dean's importance to generations of music fans (not to mention aficionados of masculine cool) now far outstrips his former reputation as the tippler of the Rat Pack or Jerry Lewis' crooning straight man

Anthony Braxton: Sextet (Parker) 1993

Read "Sextet (Parker) 1993" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Is the music of Anthony Braxton impenetrable? Frankly yes, and absolutely not. There are entire wings of his musical house, for instance his Trillium R operas, Echo Echo Mirror House, and Ghost Trance Music, that listeners find untraversable.

Jingle All the Damned Way

Read "Jingle All the Damned Way" reviewed by Jeff Fitzgerald, Genius

I'm not an unreformed Scrooge, I assure you. I do not lack for holiday spirit, even if I don't decorate the Geniusdome until it looks like a busload of drag queens crashed into a 30-foot Balsam fir.

Bing Crosby documentary ‘Rediscovers’ enigmatic crooner

If Bing Crosby seems like a voice from a long-forgotten era, it’s because in many ways he is. As cabaret star Michael Feinstein laments, “No one dreamed he’d fade.” Except maybe the four sons from his first marriage, two of whom committed suicide and two who died of natural causes.
