LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

M ore often than not, a Grammy award in a rap category has seemed like a one-way ticket to triviality. What does that mean for this year's crop of winners?

A veteran Nashville record producer has opened a new studio in Memphis with plans to use the internet to reach out to the European market.

Rick Trevino launched his career during country's boom, but now he's looking to relaunch it with a new sound that intermingles a Latin style with contemporary country.

Plus, profiles of Pat Metheny, Dave Van Ronk, Oasis, new music from Richard Thompson, Smashing Pumpkins, and more.
