Trisha Yearwood Acclaimed singer/songwriter Trisha Yearwood will perform music from her new CD, Jasper County, tonight at the Hippodrome. The new album is her 11th and, according to Yearwood, is introspective and more carefully considered than her previous work. "I've never taken this long to make a record," she says on her Web site. "I'd never completely started over on an album like I did on this one." The Hippodrome Theatre at France-Merrick Performing Arts Center is at 12 N. Eutaw St. Tickets are $33-$58.

Alicia Keys -- As I Am (J Records) For all her formidable talents (which include a honey-coated voice and a self-assurance that has kept her firmly in control of her own music and career), the knock on Alicia Keys has always been that her R&B was long on heart and short on hooks. It's a complaint she evidently took seriously, because her third studio album enlists the help of John Mayer and professional song doctor Linda Perry in an obvious quest to make Keys a little more pop friendly.

CORINACorina (Cutting/Atco 91752)Dance music singers aren't all faceless and interchangeable -they just sound that way. And it's no wonder, given the way producer-programmed beats dominate so many of today's dance hits. So why bother with an album like "Corina"? It certainly isn't the singing; close your eyes, and Corina could as easily be Saffire, Elisa Fiorello or a half-dozen other Latin hip-hop vocalists. No, the only real reason to listen are the songs -- which, fortunately, are first-rate, from the dark, moody groove of "Temptation" to the minor-key urgency of "Whispers."

That sure was a stirring farewell to Mother Teresa on the Today show yesterday, although it got to be a bit much after a while, didn't it? What's that? You say that wasn't a tribute to Calcutta's beloved "saint of the gutters"? The three hours of mass veneration, the weepy goodbye videos from viewers who said she changed their lives, the gooey testimonials from adoring co-workers, the "We'll Miss You!" signs held aloft by the worshipful crowds shoe-horned into Rockefeller Plaza, the hugs, the kisses, the tears - you say all that was for who?

Last year it was Michael Bolton. This time it's Sting.The respected rock singer-songwriter is taking a cue from pop's self-avowed soul provider by making his Nashville television debut on tonight's 31st annual Country Music Association awards.Like Bolton, who performed with friend and country vocalist rTC Wynonna, the ex-Police-man will take the stage with Oklahoman Toby Keith to sing their duet version of "I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying."The tune, originally on Sting's "Mercury Falling," was recorded for Keith's current "Dream Walkin'" project -- though the singers taped their vocals separately.

AaliyahOne In a Million (Blackground/Atlantic 92715)Some singers are blessed with voices so beautiful that, as the saying goes, they'd sound good just reading the newspaper. Most, though, need strong material to make the most of their gifts, as Aaliyah inadvertently proves on her sophomore release, "One in a Million." Although there's a lot to be said for the silken tone and supple phrasing she pulls from her girlish alto, the songs assembled here rarely give her a chance to show off those strengths.

WHAT'S THE 411?Mary J. Blige (MCA/Uptown 10681)Even though most new jack swing stars are male, the genre isn't just for guys. Or so says Mary J. Blige, whose "What's the 411?" applies the same rap-meets-R&B approach that pushed Bobby Brown and Bell Biv DeVoe to the top of the charts. Blige not only knows the moves, but has all the right connections, fleshing out her album with a cast of contributors ranging from rapper Grand Puba to Jodeci mastermind Devante Swing. Even so, Blige doesn't quite play it the way the boys do, meaning that where they're always boasting about how hard their sound is, she has no qualms about showing off her softer side.

No sooner did word get out that the Cordish Co., which revitalized the Power Plant, might also manage and operate the Pier Six Concert Pavilion, then there was talk of "bigger and better acts" being booked into the 18-year-old Inner Harbor venue.It's not surprising that local music fans believe the pier could be booking better-known bands than it has been. Last summer, for instance, the Merriweather Post Pavilion brought in Lilith Fair, the Backstreet Boys, Pearl Jam and Phish, while the Nissan Pavilion at Stone Ridge had the Spice Girls, Dave Matthews Band, Shania Twain and Ozzfest.

Good music often comes from hard times. But it would be difficult to imagine harder times than those that inspired Beth Nielsen-Chapman's album, "Sand and Water."It all started in 1993, when her husband, Ernest Chapman, was diagnosed with lymphoma and given just a couple of months to live. "He didn't really have any symptoms," she says over the phone from her home in Nashville, Tenn. "It was really a big shock to our whole family."But Ernest was a fighter and managed to hold on for a year and a half -- time the family cherished.

Trisha Yearwood(Songbook) A Collection of Hits (MCA 70011)It's not every country singer who could compile a greatest hits collection that opens with a big Dianne Warren ballad and closes with a tender little love song by Garth Brooks. But then, Trisha Yearwood isn't just any country singer. A crossover artists in the best sense of the term, Yearwood's singing marries the unfettered emotionalism of country with the full-throated power of mainstream pop. But the real magic in "(Songbook) A Collection of Hits" isn't what she does with her voice, but what she brings to the songs.
