LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A pproaching the mid-year point, the big stories in country music so far concern a couple of grown-up women and a couple of not-so-young guys who don't fit any prefabricated mold.

While most supergroups are about flash and ego, New Grange is about maturity, complexity and space, despite being composed of six musicians with extraordinary credentials in various genres. More than two years after his death, "Alpaca Lips" arrives as the first of an archival flood from Tucson favorite Rainer Ptacek.

Plus, new albums from Yusef Lateef and pianist Monty Alexander, and more.
