Can this be the Golden Age of the Monkees? Rock's original manufactured group outsold the Beatles in 1967, and filled arenas in the 1980s. Reruns of their fondly remembered television show and the run of ridiculously catchy singles that accompanied it - “Last Train to Clarksville,” “I'm a Believer” and “Daydream Believer” among them - ensured a baseline level of popularity through the decades that followed. But the death last year of Davy Jones sent the albums back to the charts and helped to speed a reconsideration of the band's catalog and its enduring influence on the power-pop that followed.

Warren Haynes, lead singer and guitarist of Gov't Mule, sings what might be the four most introspective words of his career. On "Child of the Earth," in his bluesy drawl, he sings "wisdom comes from despair." This truly applies to Gov't Mule, which almost broke up after founding bassist Allen Woody died six years ago. But Haynes has replaced sorrow with triumph now that Gov't Mule has released what he considers the band's best record, August's High & Mighty. The album, which is the band's seventh studio album, is the second from the current lineup of the band.

Perhaps the most daring jazz vocalist of her generation, Cassandra Wilson often pushes her music in thrilling, richly evocative directions. The dark and loamy feel of the blues usually anchors her sound. Be it a Hank Williams ballad, a pop ditty by the Monkees or an introspective self-penned tune, Wilson adds sensuous, haunting textures and dimensions to any song. On Loverly, her latest CD released in June, the Grammy winner revisits the American Songbook. Excluding Rendezvous, her 1997 duet album with pianist Jacky Terrasson, Loverly is Wilson's first exploration of standards as a leader in 20 years.

Now, Lopez is eyeing a career in film and continuing his successful standup tour. Sunday, he comes to the Warner Theatre in Washington.
