    The House of Tudor

    The Whispers are soul survivors, one of the few stand-up vocal groups from the '60s who still snap. The band was originally formed by five teen-agers who spent their nights doo-wopping on the street corners of Watts, but the Whispers call the Bay Are...

    Pat Metheny Pat Metheny is so annoying. With an ear for modern harmony and a talent for catchy melodic improv second only to maybe Bill Frisell's, he's one of the slickest guitarists in contemporary jazz. But the two dozen albums in his discograp...
