America's premier roots rock band is celebrating its 30th anniversary with an album that could well be its very best. The Ride is both a nostalgic glance back and a bracing look ahead, featuring stunning new material and inspired versions of a handful of older songs. What kicks the album into the stratosphere are its guests, all of whom have been important influences on Los Lobos, including Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Ruben Blades, Bobby Womack, Richard Thompson, Mavis Staples and Dave Alvin.

The five members of Los Lobos had recorded 11 new songs and were two days away from the deadline to turn in their latest album when a thought suddenly struck them. "We sort of had this idea that we weren't quite done," saxophonist Steve Berlin said. "That there was another song hovering out in the ether somewhere." Singer-guitarist David Hidalgo went back into the studio and recorded a melody that had been in his head, and the group's lyricist Louie Perez took it home to think it over.

What kind of band is Los Lobos?That depends. Sometimes Los Lobos is a gutsy, roots-rock outfit specializing in blues and Southwestern rock, and sometimes it's a cagey, alternative band with a taste for unconventional sounds and experimental song structures. Then there's the Los Lobos that does movie soundtrack music; the Los Lobos that plays spirited, accordion-spiked norteno music; and the Los Lobos that does children's music."And we have this alter ego that goes out and does these performing arts [series]

ALWAYS Pebbles (MCA 10025)If producers L.A. and Babyface are the Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis of West Coast R&B, then Pebbles is their Janet Jackson. Good as the analogy is, though, it isn't enough to make "Always" the California equivalent of Jackson's "Rhythm Nation." Granted, this album does boast a similar assortment of issue-oriented dance songs ("Say a Prayer for Me") and gooey love ballads ("Why Do I Believe"). But instead of the muscular insistence of Jackson's music, Pebbles prefers a softer sell, one which takes its strength from subtle soulfulness.

There was a time when jazz festivals served as a sort of cultural barometer, showcasing both mainstream and cutting-edge artists so the audience could decide for itself which end of the spectrum seemed more interesting. But in recent years, big jazz fests have mainly pandered to the tastes of the most casual listeners, stressing the easy listening gloss of "smooth jazz" above all else. Not the Bell Atlantic Jazz Festival. This multi-city event is like a blast from the past, offering everything from the shock of the new to the soothing sounds of tradition.

When Mayor Martin O'Malley took office six months ago, most folks thought his days of moonlighting in his own Celtic rock band were numbered. Think again. The mayor has used his political celebrity to parlay his band, O'Malley's March, into a much-desired East Coast act. Since being inaugurated mayor in December, the group has delivered its rock-influenced Irish folk tunes and O'Malley originals at such respected music venues as the Kennedy Center in Washington and Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.

DALLAS -- Isbeth Hernandez was on the phone with her cousins in Nuevo Laredo, just across the Texas-Mexico border. They were talking about the beast that drains blood from its victims.They wondered if Chupacabra, the Goat Sucker, was out there (( again. Out in the night, sucking the blood right out of dogs, goats and who knows what else.Hernandez's cousins were specifically wrestling with the possibility that this unseen fanged evil -- this nasty, seldom-spotted, Latin-style Loch Ness Monster whose legend has mushroomed this year -- had just sipped blood out of all those dead chickens in their yard.
