Is Summer Even Summer Without A Chunky Black Sandal?

It's pretty impressive how quickly we've racked up an extensive sandal collection considering it's only mid-July.

But, there's one go-to sandal that's been there through all the come-and-go trends — and some of Instagram's most stylish ladies are staying loyal to it. Remember the chunky black sandal?In the same way a combat boot has become the ultimate — and most ve...

Donald Trump, The Opera?

Donald Trump is the undisputed hero of this comic opera in three acts. “Comic” does not here mean superficial or laugh-out-loud hilarious: as Rossini so superbly demonstrated in “The Barber of Seville”, comic opera combines a sophisticated analysis of human interactions with a light touch. Foreign policy offers plenty of opportunities to study human nature; at summits, each participant brings not only his or her personality but a country’s sensitivities, strengths and weaknesses to bear. Like Ba...

New Music This Week: Lera Lynn Is Old School, Sophia Black Is Not, & More

Lera Lynn & Nicole Atkins "In Another Life"Lera Lynn dropped a duets album that is worth obsessing over. If you clicked play and thought her lilting alto sounds familiar, you may have heard (or seen) her on season 2 of True Detective. Or, it might just be that her particular brand of roots music feels so damn familiar. To me, this track just screams Roy Orbison: classic with his syncopation of delivery and that lifting vocal he was famous for. Sophia Black "fire"Self-confidence in a relation...

Ronnie Cuber in Copenhagen

Baritone saxophonist Ronnie Cuber cut his teeth in  Marshall Brown's Newport Youth Band in 1959. The band was noteworthy for breaking in gifted players who went on to sizable jazz careers, including bassist Eddie Gomez and pianist Mike Abene. The band also was a feeder for Maynard Ferguson's big band of the early 1960s. Among those who recorded on Ferguson's The New Sound of Maynard Ferguson (1963) and Come Blow Your Horn (1964) were Ronnie, Abene, Nat Pavone and others. [Photo above of Ronnie ...

Stream Online the Complete “Lost” John Coltrane Album, Both Directions at Once

Expectations ran high when it was announced last month that a lost (!) John Coltrane album, Both Directions at Once, had been discovered by the family of his ex-wife Naima, and would finally be released for fans to hear. Would it prove worthy of Sonny Rollin’s comparison to “finding a new room in the Great Pyramid”? Such discoveries can lead to dead ends and disappointments as often as to revelations. In this case, the album yields neither, which is not to say it isn’t, as Chris Morris w...

Scientific Study: Beetles REALLY Don’t Like Rock Music

The researchers report beetles who were serenaded by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings ate just as many aphids as those who dined in silence. But exposure to the rock music greatly depressed their appetites. Listening to AC/DC reduced by nearly half the number of aphids they consumed over a 16- to 18-hour period.
