Death hasn't stopped Ray Charles from inspiring yet another musical trend. In the wake of the legend's recent Grammy-grabbing success with Genius Loves Company, two other well-seasoned artists are trying to stage comebacks by mimicking that album's canny strategy. The duets on Genius saw Charles bonding with a host of well-worn names, including Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Norah Jones and Willie Nelson. Currently, Jerry Lee Lewis and Herbie Hancock are recording albums in that format. Lewis' as-yet-untitled CD - his first studio work since 1995 - will feature Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Neil Young, B.B. King, Little Richard, Don Henley, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Kid Rock, Rod Stewart and Kris Kristofferson.

BIZARRE FRUITM People (Epic 67037)Too often, the singing on dance records seems almost an afterthought, something mixed in at the last minute to give the groove a little extra flavor. M People, on the other hand, come across like a soul group that just happens to have a flair for hard-core club beats. Consequently, "Bizarre Fruit" is one of the rarest of all pop pleasures, an album that's as listenable as it is danceable. Although deep-voiced Heather Small has all the power and presence expected of a house music diva, she avoids the vocal histrionics that make so many of the species unbearable.

Part of the problem with trying to keep up with the career of the Artist Formerly Known as Prince is that it's so easy to lose the plot.Start with the name. Ever since he decided to retire the name "Prince" in favor of an unpronounceable icon of his own devising, even his fans haven't known what to call him. TAFKAP? Symbol Man? Mr. Nelson? Then there are his business dealings, which, from his announced retirement from recording a few years back, to the collapse of his Paisley Park empire, to the spat with Warner Bros.

Make no mistake: When the history of our age is finally written, people will speak with awe and admiration of the Clinton Era. It's almost inevitable, really. Because beyond the expected hero worship -- the plaudits to Clinton's imagination, innovation and initiative -- it will be impossible not to acknowledge the extent to in which the Clintonian vision will have shaped the world of the future.What? No, no, not Bill and Hillary. We're talking about George Clinton.Don't worry -- it's a common mistake.

AT 26, ROBERT GLASPER is already impressive - a gifted jazz musician with a brilliant, energetic technique and a fresh, mesmerizing sense of melody and composition. A native of Houston, Texas, Glasper will release Canvas, his exuberant debut for Blue Note Records, Oct. 4. He will bring his playful, Herbie-Hancock-influenced style to Washington's Blues Alley Nov. 9. His critically well received first album, Mood, was released on the independent Fresh Sound New Talent label in 2003. Based in New York, Glasper has backed an interesting range of artists, including Carly Simon, Q-Tip and Mos Def. An accessible, fluid stylist who at times weaves hip-hop, gospel and R&B influences through his compositions, Glasper is a musically illuminating cat with a limitless future in modern jazz.

Branford Marsalis. Name ring a bell?"Most people don't know who I am," the musician claims.However, some may recognize him as the brother of the eminent classical/jazz trumpeter, Wynton Marsalis. And anyone familiar with rock star Sting's last three albums has heard the saxophonist at work.But he is on his own, or at least with his Branford Marsalis Quartet, as he performs across the country.He enjoyed touring with and playing on albums for Sting, "Dream of the Blue Turtles" and ". . . Nothing Like the Sun."
