It was clear that he had nothing to hide, that he was just a regular, unadorned guy. On the Grammy telecast in February, John Mayer, looking like a college student in a T-shirt and sneakers, fluidly plucked his guitar and soulfully sang his breakout hit, "Your Body Is a Wonderland." After his performance, the 26-year-old singer-songwriter picked up the award for best male pop vocal, beating such widely respected veterans as Sting, James Taylor and Elton John. Since then, Mayer, who performs at the 1st Mariner Arena tomorrow night, has become one of the biggest names in pop, a promising artist whose confessional, melancholic lyrics center on personal insecurities, love and its dizzying twists.

Alot of guys start playing guitar to get girls, but no one's as obvious about it as John Mayer. He's an outstanding guitar player, though there's scant evidence of that on his albums. There's just no room for fiery solos on Mayer's soft-focus seduction pieces, aimed at loosening the inhibitions of post-Justin college girls - kind of like beer, but without the morning-after headache. His crooning voice and blurry-edged ballads combine to convey a single straightforward message: "I love you, and I'll always respect you because I'm sensitive, and your body is a wonderland.

Herbie Hancock, forever the chameleonic musician, is still restless. And that's a good thing. As he talks about the art of making music and his just-released album, Possibilities, he's as analytical as a professor -- breaking down some of his ideas literally note for note. A palpable enthusiasm bubbles through all the talk of chord changes and melody and rhythm embellishments. Calling from his Los Angeles office, Hancock puts me on hold from time to time to give instructions to his assistant.

John Mayer isn't hurting for hits. But even the multiplatinum pop and blues singer/songwriter doesn't have enough singles to fill a whole show. Instead of digging through deep album cuts to round out his Sunday night concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion, he strung together a pretty tight set of his own hits and put his stamp on some classic cover songs. The show, which clocked in at about an hour and 15 minutes, was brisk but worthwhile. A steady, heavy rain drenched outdoor concertgoers as Mayer plucked notes to the first tune, "Vultures."

John Mayer Trio Try [Columbia/Aware] *** (3 stars) The blues are meant to be toyed with. In the right hands, they can be a source of inspiration, the root of an artist's discovery of a unique sound and vision. Or they can be a dead end. For John Mayer, the blues are a welcome escape, a side trip from his career as easy-listening pop star and wiseguy troubadour. Turns out he just wants to be Stevie Ray Vaughan. "You all ready to get down?" he asks early on this live album, leading his new blues trio - Mayer, bassist Pino Palladino and the accomplished Steve Jordan on drums.

The 47th Grammy Awards nominations better reflect what kinds of music people actually listened to than in years past. That's a good thing; it proves that the members of the Recording Academy have a pulse. Although Kanye West's impressive debut, College Dropout, didn't get a lot of air play, it refreshed hip-hop and became a double-platinum hit, appearing on numerous best-of-2004 lists. All eyes will be on the Chicago rapper-producer, who leads the pack with 10 nominations. Although predicting winners is always tricky, here are my favorites in this year's major award categories.
