"Hoo boy, are you going to have fun watching this. It bursts with great rhythm & blues, funk, and jazz music. It's got superb performances from two ‘Wire' vets, Wendell Pierce (as devilish trombone player Antoine) and Clarke Peters (as the leader of a Mardi Gras Indian tribe). There's also Steve Zahn, in his first TV series, playing a ditzy DJ; John Goodman as a righteous English professor; and Khandi Alexander (forget " CSI: Miami" — this is her best work since 2000's ‘The Corner,' another Simon project)

Go ahead. Try to name the five best-selling rock bands in U.S. history. The top four are the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and the Eagles. But the fifth might come as a surprise. It's AC/DC, a group that has sold a staggering 70 million albums in the United States and 140 million worldwide. The band's top seller, Back in Black, sold 19 million copies in the United States (42 million worldwide) and has been played in every frat house worth its beer, as well as in every rock rebel's car stereo across the land.

Elvis Costello wants you to listen carefully to the beginning of his new album, a collaboration with songwriter Burt Bacharach called "Painted From Memory."It starts with a song called "In the Darkest Place," a song about the despair that can wash over a man abandoned and denied by his lover. But it isn't the melody or lyric Costello wants us to hear - at least, not just yet.Where he wants our focus is on the introduction. "Listen to how appealing, how intriguing the opening notes of the record are," he says.

Elvis Costello has had a number of minor movie roles recently, landing cameos in everything from "200 Cigarettes" to "Spice World."But he's never been so cast against type as he is in the Julia Roberts-Hugh Grant romantic comedy, "Notting Hill." And the funny thing is, he isn't even onscreen when it happens.Costello, in fact, is only on the soundtrack, singing the Charles Aznavour ballad "She" as Grant adoringly contemplates Roberts. "It's just a straight-out, adoring love song that's supposed to represent this guy's idealization of this Hollywood goddess," Costello explains, over the phone from London.

Felton Barner retired in late 2007 after spending 30 years in the information technology industry. But the 60-year-old Columbia resident didn't stay retired for too long. Earlier this year, Barner decided to pursue his lifelong interest in photography; he opened an art gallery business in May. Peter Van Buren, too, was ready for a new start after a 25-year career in wine sales. Finding a company that matched his passion in promoting environmental sustainability proved challenging, though.

Music Secret, Profane & Sugarcane *** (3 stars) Elvis Costello Elvis Costello has never been one to shrink from a challenge, and on his new album, he has taken on a big one, a song cycle of sorts incorporating themes that wind like the muddy Mississippi through the cultural legacy of the American South and the tragic secrets and varied stripes of love - obsessive, unrequited and misfired. Some songs can be as straightforward as classic country. With country queen Loretta Lynn, Costello wrote "I Felt the Chill Before the Winter Came," a dark scenario of a faithless man losing his grip on the woman he sinned for. Others are as art-song sophisticated as "She Was No Good," inspired by 19th-century European singing star Jenny Lind's tour of the U.S. Mystery abounds in oblique stories such as "Hidden Shame."

A night at the symphony is the most sought-after concert ticket in town this week. But while conductor Marin Alsop and her Baltimore orchestra will be on stage, they're not exactly the main draw. That would be Trey Anastasio, the guitarist and vocalist best known as the frontman of Phish, which enjoys a devoted fan base not seen since the Grateful Dead. On Thursday, Anastasio will perform the East Coast premiere of Time Turns Elastic, a 30-minute piece that blends electric guitar and vocal solos into a rich orchestral fabric.
