DEARBORN COUNTY Soiilfioast Indiana ...the porfeot place to plaJ disc 'n'dat Solo suits Greg Burton Strong local sessions players enhance Hyde Park Outrage G. BURTON Cobaltwestsoutherntrancemusic; $14.98 k-k-kVz G. Burton has been kicking around the local scene for a few years, including some time with a promising alt-country-rock band called Solstice that featured ex-Uncle Six members. Nothing he's done comes close to this solo album. Son of local country-pop singer Danny Burton, Greg wisely enlisted his dad and some of the best and most versatile local session players. With violinist Paul Patterson, steel player Kenny Holycross, bassist Michael Sharfe and drummer Mike Hodges, along with the younger Burton's band Hyde Park Outrage, Cobaltwestsoutherntrancemusic sounds as good as its title is bad. Burton's brand of alt-country isn't the punk-styled honky tonking of Uncle Tupelo or Hank III. Instead, the 10 songs hearken back to the mellow 70s sounds of Pure Prairie League and Jesse Colin Young. The CD opens with "Shake the Petals," which is colored by haunting fiddle and lyrical wordplay (e.g., rhyming "Pigeon Forge" and "Curious George"). "Out From Under" is a playful love song with a tropical lilt "Red Line Ticks" is an edgier tune, swinging between HPO's Clint Zimmerman's harmonica and the classical sound of Sharfe's bowed bass. "So" showcases pedal steel, giving a country edge to Burton's likable tenor voice and sweet pop songwriting. Twangy dobro serves that purpose on the even poppier Trailer Park Ways," which, in better radio days, would have been a local hit "Cadillac Song" takes things in a bluesy direction with Zimmerman's harp and some gospel-flavored female backup vocals. "Moment" is an acoustic ballad given wings by stellar interplay between the dobro, fiddle and mandolin. "Cold Hand, Warm Thigh" shifts directions again, taking an R&B detour that finds Burton singing in a Prince-like falsetto. It's all good and a fine debut by a talented singer songwriter and his world-class band. Tonight G. Burton & Hyde Park Outrage play R.P. McMurphy's in Oakley; Saturday, they're at Shady O'Grady's in Remington. Larry Nager ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK The Matrix Reloaded: The Album WarnerSunsetMaverick; $19.98 Vi The Matrix Reloaded is a double-CD soundtrack, full of the big-name, radio-ready metal and electronica that appeals to The Matrix's core kung fu-and-comics crowd. Disc one sports nu-metal (I inkin Park, Deftones, P.O.D.), old metal (Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie), remixed jam-band (Dave Matthews Band) and brand-name trance (Oakenfold). Disc two features the film's entrancing classicalelectronic score by Don Davis and electronica act Juno Reactor, enhanced material of previews from the movie and the accompanying animated projects. The opening track, Linkin Park's moody, instrumental "Session," has an eerie, edgy appeal, but that s followed by the tired posturings of Marilyn Manson's This Is the New S " (uh, wrong) and Zombie's "Reload." Things pick up again with Rob Dougan's blissful techno in "Furious Angels." If s up to the now defunct Rage Against the Machine to really crank with "Calm Like a Bomb." It ends on a dance mode through Oakenfold's "Dread Rock," Fluke's "Zion" and Dave Matthews' "When the World Ends" (remixed by Oakenfold). Cary Darling, The Miami Herald EARTH, WIND & FIRE The Promise Kalimba; $17.98 On its first new album in sue years, the legendary band delivers an engaging first single that recalls some of its best work of the 70s. "All in the Way" reunites EWF with the Emotions, who graced their classic "Boogie Wonderland," and features a welcome return of Maurice White's signature kalimba. With horn-kissed ballads and infectious jazz-funk grooves, the band seems to have regained its spark. Steve Jones, USA Today JESSE HARRIS & THE FERDINANDOS The Secret Sun Blue Thumb; $14.98 This well-crafted CD by Jesse Harris - writer of Norah Jones's hit "Don't Know Why -lives up to newly heightened expectations, offering much of the quiet introspection fans flocked to Jones for. She returns the favor by singing and playing piano on "What Makes You" and lurks in the background on the soft "If You Won't" Howard Cohen, The Miami Herald DAVID BANNER Mississippi: The Album SRCUniversal Records; $18.98 This is what came out of all that pain!" screams David Banner on the album he named after his historically troubled birthplace, Mississippi. But don't be afraid: What the artist born Lavell Crump has actually come up with is an offering that makes you understand what could get you to the point of screaming; at the same time it's smart enough not to stay mired in that hate. Mississippi: The Album opens like a compilation of many of the distinctly Southern hip-hop styles. Midway, however, the drum machines take a backseat to acoustic and wah-wah guitars, setting the tone for Banner's bluesy yelps about the appreciation he has for women ("My Shawty"), and on the title track, the inner turmoil wrought growing up in a place "where a flag means more than me."
