John Popper's voice and his harmonica solos burn through the air. Although he's a rock star, Popper is actually a soul singer in the most basic sense -- an artist who drinks liberally from the blues well. After hearing the singer-musician once, you certainly don't forget him. And he can't lose with the support of his energetic band. But as Blues Traveler's frontman, Popper's talents haven't always been appreciated. "Yeah, some people said I tried to rip off Cat Stevens and Stevie Wonder," says the Cleveland-born, New Jersey-raised artist, who's calling from a tour stop in upstate New York.

Harleys have been a part of rock star macho since before the days of "Easy Rider," but that born-to-be-wild abandon hasn't always come cheap.Motorcycle crashes claimed the lives of Duane Allman, Richard Farina and Allman Brothers bassist Berry Oakley, and nearly ended the careers of Bob Dylan and Billy Idol. So when Blues Traveler harmonica man John Popper wrecked his bike on the way to a recording session late last summer, everyone involved was relieved that his injuries were no more serious than a broken femur.

Even before they first shared a stage, DJ Logic knew he wanted to work with Blues Traveler front man John Popper. He got his chance in 2003. When the two first performed together in San Francisco, Logic accompanied Popper for two sets. The gig sparked an interest that later led them to form the John Popper Project, record and release an album and start touring. Saturday, they play the 8x10. "[Popper] thought it'd be cool to try something different," said Logic, aka Jason Kibler. "We basically just bumped heads and kicked it off real good - what we really wanted to do."

De La SoulStakes Is High (Tommy Boy 1149)There's a reason De La Soul dubbed its new album "Stakes Is High." "Stakes" isn't just a make-or-break effort by a group whose reputation has sagged considerably since the release of "Buhloone Mind State" three years ago; it's also a statement about the importance of keeping hip-hop culture vital. Fortunately for De La Soul, the album succeeds on both fronts. From the album-opening montage presenting fan-in-the-street recollections of Boogie Down Productions' classic "Criminal Minded" to the way "Brakes" quotes Kurtis Blow's "The Breaks," De La Soul clearly appreciates the hip-hop heritage.
