No storm will rain on this parade. Nick Cristiano Taylor Swift Taylor Swift (Big Machine ) lilf r:& St, So she likes Tim McGraw, and even uses the name of the hack superstar as the title of her (quite good) first single. It's hard to hold that against Taylor Swift after hearing this impressive debut. Just 16 years old, and from the Reading area, Swift wrote or cowrote all the songs here. She displays a maturity beyond her years while retaining the freshness of youth, just as her slightly husky voice balances between open-hearted innocence and life-scarred experience. There's a feistiness to country-rockers "Picture to Burn" and "Should've Said No," but no bubblegum angst or melodrama. Much of the music has a bracing acoustic country texture that reflects the taste and restraint of the singing and writing. "Maybe I'm just a girl on a mission, but I'm ready to fly," Swift declares in "A Place in This World." She's got that right. Here's hoping the commercial pressures that success brings don't pull her back down. - N.C.

Spend a little more time with the CD, and it turns out Harris can also compose, arrange and lead. Harris chooses five cuts from two great Ellington works: The New Orleans Suite from 1970, near the end of the maestro's career, and The Queen's Suite from 1959, which Ellington wrote for Queen See RECORDINGS on H13 I ril:WIil EWMIb 'Tt.irtffi fflijrM.'fl f :L",.'LH, WIN A PAIR OF TICKETS To enter go to: http:COnteStS.philly.COITl BESwUXUB S3 825 Walnut Street Visit us at I FOUND TINY TIM!
