Jazzie B. At the Q Awards or the Brit Awards, we've not got a look in. It's a shame no one from the estab- lishment could see this. This approach has produced a list of nominees that ranges from Wu- Tang Clan for best international hip-hop act to Prodigy and the Chemical Brothers for best dance act , Andy Ruffeli, managing director of the MOBO Organisation, says this approach is consistent with perceptions of the music here.
Ruffeli argues that the event has filled a niche in the already crowded market for award shows. The dehut show scored a domestic audience of 2. This year, MOBO is confident enough to be selling the show interna- tionally. London-based distributor Screen Ventures reports strong inter- national interest in the program, with deals to be finalized after the event.

Intermittent keyboardist Rick Wakeman, who first joined in , kept the group "on our fingertips for six months," says singer Jon Anderson, before deciding this past summer not to participate. So that leaves two founding members An- derson and bas- sist Chris Squire , two veterans guitarist Steve Howe and drum- mer Alan White , and one rookie guitarist Billy Sherwood, a some- time Yes co-producer. It's actually the second Yes album of the fall. And 'Open Your Eyes' is more formulated, radio friendly — you could say it's a commercial al- bum.
It has all the pinpoints; there are about four really good songs I love singing, not more than four or five minutes each. Just fun, happy songs. Anderson, in a phone interview before a Hartford, Conn. We should just make an album and get on the road,' " he recalls. We've been sort of pent up with a lot of frustration. Instead of playing short, lightweight pop songs like Elvis Presley or the early Beatles, these groups aspired to link rock with more lofty clas- sical and jazz traditions.
But, more recently, Yes has re- defined itself as two different bands. On rec- ord, Yes plays mostly catchy, upbeat pop mu- sic; in concert, the musicians per- form elaborate solos and rely on older, longer songs. Some of the "Open Your Eyes" songs, including "Universal Gar- den," which begins with an elabo- rate synthesizer suite, rely on Yes' traditionally complex rock arrange- ments.
Mostly, though, the album sticks to catchy pop — and the love theme comes up many times, in the lyrics of "Wonderlove," "From The Balcony," and "Love Shine. As is usually the case with Yes, hard-to-decipher sentiments pop up all over the new album. He wrote, "You've got great imagina- tion" in the title track, for example, which gives the otherwise-straight- forward pop song a cosmic touch.
Stephen Stills is inducted into Hollywood's Rock- Walk. Stills was inducted by friend Bruce Willis. Re- leased Nov. To hear Garfunkel tell it, the pair's output was fueled by Paul Simon's ceaseless drive. We'd finish a project, and I'd say, Td like to take a breather,' and Paul would be like, 'I know what we can do next' It was a constant race around the track.
Put it this way, we never partied during those years. We took all the energy of knowing we were being accepted and poured it back into the studio. You gotta have a lot of love between people for that. I forgot how much we breathed together. There's something very sweet about that. Garfunkel doesn't expect "Old Friends" to change any- one's feelings about the duo, simply because he feels no revisionist history is needed.
I haven't eschewed this group as a sound that's passe. I think they were always appealing and still are. He is in discussions with other record companies.

Burkum replaced guitarist Barry Blair, who left the band in January Tyler Burkum did most of the guitar on this record. Production- wise we just went for it and put no lim- its on ourselves.
Stuart says the title cut was inspired by the time he spent in Haiti, where his parents were working as missionaries. The 'Zombie' record is less introspective. It's more generally spiritual to a much broader audience. It's about change. It's about transformation, about how God takes you from being dead on the inside to filling you up with life.

Maria Miller's vocals don't so much front the disc's nine songs as take their place alongside the musical sounds being generated by her cohorts.

It's got to be the younger demographic as well," says Gina Iorillo-Corrales, senior VP in Beyond's promotion department.
And basically Yes has never gone away, and this is the consummate Yes lineup. The key is they're making really good music, and it just happens to be 30 years later. The lat- ter band broke up for several years, then reunited with a new album of exclusively old material; the Stones, like Yes, continue to put out new material and play the hits on the road. But Yes has carried a larger stigma than either of those groups: Rock critics, not to mention the entire punk movement, have fre- quently savaged the band's preten- sions to "serious music.
You're famous for about 10 minutes and you're out. Maybe that's a good thing. Maybe that's what keeps us going. Maybe if the radio is excited to play this music maybe we'll have a hit. It's about time we have something. Come on, we're still good and we make good music and we're very positive and we just want to make people happy.

We want tour- ing to be intelligent, and by planning a worldwide release, we'll be able to give the next record in a way that satisfies the band's development needs and helps us bring a block- buster marketing mentality to the fourth record.
Another part of the problem in align- ing its marketing efforts has been the band's prolific out- put, says Weiss. But to him, its like, 'This is where I'm at right now. So far, the label has scored a coup with its first two artists, Scott Gordon and Joe E. With her self- titled debut album set to bow Jan. It was the first time since the '60s, really, that the Windy City had been acknowledged as a hotbed of popular music, with the record industry treating it as one. Brown Betty. None, though, had the impact of the pre- viously mentioned artists.
Label attention started to wane; media attention moved on to other mar- kets. Now that the chances of signing a big-league contract have lessened, bands are supporting themselves in true indie fashion. As for the blues, Chicago's prima- ry legacy to the music world, it keeps attracting more and more of a mass audience. Gospel music is thriving, as are jazz, reggae, Latin and other genres.
Among the standouts Milne names are prominent local talents like alt-country artist Robbie Fulks, singer -songwriter Edith Frost and buzzed-about jump- blues act the Mighty Blue Kings, as well as punk acts Not Rebecca and Oblivion.
The infrastructure's sturdy; there's a wealth of little labels [some 75 independent labels, all told] in business. The num- ber of small studios has doubled. AfFiliate label Quarterstick is home to locals Pegboy and the Mckons some of whose members are still based in their native England. Touch And Go i: Chicago's most high-profile rock indie, and also one of its longest lived, with Rusk having relocated the label here from Michigan a decade ago.
Even longer on the Chicago scene is Pravda Rec- ords — at 12 years and counting — which recently was rated by an alternative weekly publication as Chicago's best label. Founder Kenn Goodman says diversifica- tion has been the key to survival for Pravda, whose artists include guitar-pop combo Wake Ooloo former members of the Feelies , Austin, Texas' Javelin Boot and hometown "idiotic rock" trio New Duncan Imperials. Pravda also distributes local labels Bloodshot, Hitlt!
As for the state of hxal music, Goodman says, "There's always been a music scene here. The hype has faded, because a lot of bands got signed and nothing happened. So people are back to square one. Despite any language barrier all songs are sung in Spanish , Latino and Anglo audiences alike are drawn to Ortega's passionate, original songs.
A decade later, his band Gadfly broke up after releasing several discs. A trip to his native Colombia several years ago convinced Ortega to explore his musical roots. When I returned to Chicago, I started playing in restaurants and clubs, and people were very receptive. By the end of the evening, Baran's playing and harmonies had won him a spotlighted role in the group.
And anyway, the year-old songwriter has no interest in ditching his country core, "My early songs combined country and rock 'n' roll, and I'm going back to that," he says. Fulks learned to play banjo and guitar growing up in Virginia and North Carolina and, in the early s, began a year teaching career at Chicago's legendary Old Town School Of Folk Music.
He joined premier bluegrass band Special Consensus and labored with minimal success in smalt clubs and songwriter showcases. Fulks then spent several years in Nash- ville, working as a commercial songwriter. It also allowed Fulks to return to Chicago, to be closer to his daughter. Caterer's bandmates include brothers Matt on bass and Eli on guitar, along with drummer Mike Felumlee. The Brothers Caterer moved to Chicago three years ago, while being signed in the feeding frenzy that followed the city's discovery as "the next big thing.
Caterer insists, "You can drive to it. You can work out to it. You can play it at parties. And you can still use it to help you sleep at night. After that, it took the other labels about three days to make their offers.

With two critically acclaimed Blue Note albums, the Chicago native has established his versatile singing style and dizzving poetry as among the most original the jazz world has seen in a generation. Elling started singing in college, introduced by a friend to the music of Ella Fitzgerald, Dexter Gordon and Herbie Hancock.
Intrigued by Mark Murphy's synthesis of iazz singing and beat poetry, Elling hooked up with sax legends Von Freeman and Ed Petersen and began performing his original "rants," grounding them in classic jazz instrumental solos and impro- visations.

All of a sudden [everything that we were doing] didn't make any sense," says Dallas Austin, who discovered Joi and functioned as the primary producer for both albums.
Joi predated D'Angelo. EMI told us she needs to be more of a Mary J. Bligel to which I said. I wanted to get Joi out of the contract, but Davitt wouldn't let me do that. He said he was as much a fan of Joi as we were, and after that conver- sation I called Joi back and said, 'Look, Davitt is a little different than every- body else. He's checking for us in a dif- ferent way. Or Nancy Wil- son.
Or Gladys Knight. Anybody who had been in the industry plus years. We always make music for us and the peo- ple who love and embrace the theory. While Austin understood where Sigerson was com- ing from, Joi initially didn't. Now you're telling me you didn't really like it? Once we talked, I found out he was talking about me making simpler rec- ords, like those that were a little dif- ferent but crept out, like Prince's 'When Doves Cry' — not selling my soul.
But I was blocked. Every time I wrote something, it came out too Toni Mor- rison, intricate and complicated. I needed some Terry McMillan. Austin says, "That's when I came up with 'Ghetto Superstar. I'd never seen that road before, and I got excited. Let's make sure we find a coupla more ways to simplify it.
We next did 'It's Over. After playing it for Sigerson, he, too, was ecstatic. Plans to release the rec- ord were again put in place. Among the songs are "My Brother's Keeper," a bittersweet tune dedicated to the memory of Austin's deceased older brother; "Dirty Mind," a slinky creep through Joi's sensuality in which a battle rages between flesh and mind; and "Ghetto Superstar," the first video and radio release the track won't be commercially available.

I think everybody had enough of that Plus I did that already. I smoked cigars in videos; talked about bandrtos, the jewelry, and dead presidents. So it's the last thing I wanted to do. What were you doing during the time that you were away? I was watching my family grow, teaching my family, taking advantage of the time off.
Then I was on tour for seven months, doing a show five days a week up until, like, '90, ' My former! I kind of took advantage of the setbacks that came my way. When I got to Universal, everything was smooth. Some tracks of yours showed up on a couple of mix tapes. What happened was, when MCA fired everybody, a lotta people had access to my demos. They started sell- ing 'em to mix shows and radio stations. That did it to me as far as putting chem- istry together and preparing the world for how I've grown since the last album.
All of my views and what I wanted to bring across got leaked out. So, when it came time to do the next project, it was like starting from nowhere and not knowing what the people heard. You always were a quiet person. Even when you were in a room filled with people you were off by yourself. I just imagine you writing in a room by yourself. That's basically it.
I go into the lab, lock the door. Have a nice, soft light be- cause I like to do most of the shining. I go beyond that. As long as the room is dim with a little mu- sic, I could go in there and do my thing. What happened between vou and Eric B.? We were never really friends. It seemed like you were two very different individuals. No doubt. We never shared a cent bag of potato chips back in the day.
We never went half on a soda. You know what I'm sayin'? When you're comin' up with kids in the neighborhood, you develop a special bond with them. But with me and him, it was straight-up business. He came around my way one day, and somebody introduced us. He said he was trying to make a recoi-d and that he knew Mister Magic and Maiiey Marl.
I guess we were two different people. Everyone connected to the hip-hop community has been eagerly await- ing a new Rakim record. Did you feel any pressure because of that? The biggest pressure that I felt was at the beginning, trying to figure out if the world will still embrace me.
Right now it's like no pressure, because up to this point in my life I could deal with anything that comes. As far as sitting down and rhyming, I wanted all the people who waited for Rakim to be sat- isfied. I'm a perfectionist, so I wanted to make sure everything was right. What's the first song you recorded for the new set? I answered all the questions peo- ple were asking: Where's Rakim?
When's the album coming out? What's up with you and Eric B.? You did a song on the soundtrack album ["Hoodlum" with Mobb Deep, but there are no guests on the album. What I wanted to do was rein- troduce myself to the world and not rely on anybody else. I wanted to come in like I came in before — solo. The record is very mystical, very cosmic. What I want people to realize as far as my lyrical skills go is that I'm more mature now. I'm taking it back where it used to be as far as rhyming.
I want [lis- teners] to pay attention to what I didn't do, and that will let them know what I stand for and what I agree and don't agree with. There are a couple of supremely romantic cuts, like "Show Me Love. I always try to get something to make instead of having them feel like every time a rapper sings something about a woman it's disrespectful.
