LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

W hat does a young culture torn by racial and sexual tension put up to rival the sculpture of Michelangelo, the screaming paintings of Van Gogh, the poetry of William Shakespeare? Duke Ellington, that's what.

Only a handful of artists are able to help define and redefine social agendas for current and future generations. Curtis Mayfield was one of those people, and writers from Nashville and Boston have filed appreciations of the artist's life and work.

Magic of some sort has clearly been at work in the life of Shania Twain, who has become one of the most successful female artists of all time.

Plus, sitting in at the Grammy nomination announcements, the soundtrack for "The Sopranos," and more.
