    The divas of pop and R&B look set to steal the show at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs)on Sunday, with Beyonce leading all nominations for her testament to female empowerment "Lemonade," and excitement building over performances by Rihanna and Britney Spears. But don't count out Kanye West, the rapper with a talent for the unpredictable, who is a contender for the coveted video of the year award and who will be seated in the front row just a short leap from the VMA stage. VMA organizers won't say whether Beyonce, West, or sultry eight-time nominated British singer Adele...

    The Boston Globe ^ | August 27th, 2016 | By Sean L. Maloney
    Forty-five years to the month after making its New England debut, pioneering heavy metal band Black Sabbath took to the stage at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield to bid the road farewell. From the perfect weather to a deep-cut-rich set list, it was a best-case concert scenario that highlighted the massive place in musical culture the band has occupied for the better part of five decades. The audience ranged in age from fired-up retirees to one particularly enthusiastic preschooler in hot-pink ear protection. Families galore sang along with every word, and more than a few friendships on display predated the...

    NPR ^ | August 25, 2016 | Bob Boilen
    Here's something I find remarkable: There are only three professionally made recordings of The Beatles playing live in concert. Sure, there are bootleg recordings that don't sound very good. And there's a single-microphone recording from the band's days performing in Hamburg in the early '60s, but that's it. All three professional recordings were done at The Hollywood Bowl. One is a performance from August 1964 and the other two from August of '65. And "professional" in the mid-'60s means they were recorded on three-track analog tape. That's the best they could do. Even the label, Capitol Records, concluded the recordings...

    ean-Baptiste “Toots” Thielemans, whose unrivaled mastery of the harmonica led to collaborations with jazz luminaries such as pianist Oscar Peterson and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, and whose mellifluous sound graced soundtracks as varied as “Midnight Cowboy”(1969) and the television show “Sesame Street,” died Aug. 22 in Belgium. He was 94. The cause was complications from a fall, his agent, Veerle Van de Poel, told Belgian media.

    New York Times ^ | AUG. 16, 2016 | NATE CHINEN
    Bobby Hutcherson, one of the most admired and accomplished vibraphonists in jazz, died on Monday at his home in Montara, Calif. He was 75. Marshall Lamm, a spokesman for Mr. Hutcherson’s family, confirmed the death, saying Mr. Hutcherson had long been treated for emphysema. Mr. Hutcherson’s career took flight in the early 1960s, as jazz was slipping free of the complex harmonic and rhythmic designs of bebop. He was fluent in that language, but he was also one of the first to adapt his instrument to a freer postbop language, often playing chords with a pair of mallets in each...

    The Daily Beast ^ | August 4th, 2016 | Colin Fleming
    In the spring of 1966, riding high on the artistic success of ‘Rubber Soul,’ the Beatles went into the studio to begin crafting what would become their greatest record. It is spring 1966, and the Beatles are ensconced in London’s EMI Studios, where they have embarked upon their latest manipulation of time. The Christmas season just passed had seen the release of the band’s sixth album, Rubber Soul, a game-changer of a disc that wedded American rhythm and blues to English folk music, as if the two genres were meant to go together all along. The Beatles, as the popsmiths-cum-pied...

    Marni Nixon, the American cinema’s most unsung singer, died on Sunday in New York. She was 86. The cause was breast cancer, said Randy Banner, a student and friend. Classically trained, Ms. Nixon was throughout the 1950s and ’60s the unseen — and usually uncredited — singing voice of the stars in a spate of celebrated Hollywood films. She dubbed Deborah Kerr in “The King and I,” Natalie Wood in “West Side Story” and Audrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady,” among many others.

However much these artists may not like having their famous tunes used for political purposes, they may not be able to do much about it. The first high-profile group to sound off about their music being used at the RNC was The Turtles. After the band’s classic 1967 tune “Happy Together” was used on the first day of the convention, Turtles co-founder Howard Kaylan expressed his...
