The soundtrack to Frank Zappa's strange early-'70s film 200 Motels was always doomed to be a peripheral entry in his discography. The movie's story was not easy to follow, and neither is the record (not that plot was ever a big focus of the production). It's typically wacky Zappa of the era, with unpredictable sharp turns between crunchy rock bombast, orchestration, and jazz/classical influences, as well as interjections of wacky spoken dialogue. Those who like his late-'60s/early-'70s work – not as song-oriented as his first albums, in other words, but not as "serious" or as silly as his later records – will probably like this fine, although it's not up to the level of Uncle Meat.

From the Middle Ages until the nineteenth century, plainchant was sung polyphonically all over Europe - in a great variety of ways. It is no exaggeration to say that for centuries it epitomized the sound of church music for congregations. Fauxbourdon was a means of solemnizing the Divine Office by embellishing the plainchant melody. This double CD featuring Dominique Vellard and the Ensemble Gilles Binchois offers a selection of this music that reflects the variety and diversity of four centuries of French polyphonic plainchant.

Daniil Trifonov's 2013 recital at Carnegie Hall is a clear demonstration of what this pianist does well, in works well-suited to his talents. Trifonov has a reputation for his dazzling technique, which he has shown to best advantage in performances of Romantic repertoire, and his live readings of Alexander Scriabin's Piano Sonata No. 2 in G sharp minor, "Sonata-Fantasy," Franz Liszt's Piano Sonata in B minor, and Frédèric Chopin's 24 Preludes, Op. 28, offer a well-rounded impression of his extraordinary abilities.

You'd get differing answers to the question of whether John Adams is America's greatest living composer, but he's the one to whom the country turned in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The demand for new work from him has only increased since he achieved senior citizen status. Fortunately, he's been able to meet that demand with distinctive large-scale works. Consider 2016's Scheherazade.2, recorded here by the violinist who premiered the work, Leila Josefowicz, with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra under David Robertson.

Produced by Don Was, the highly anticipated Prisoner is the first release from Ryan Adams since his 2015 Taylor Swift cover album 1989. With influences from AC/DC and Electric Light Orchestra to Bruce Hornsby and Bachman-Turner Overdrive, the tracks may be more uptempo than in the past, but lyrically Adams is just as personal and soul-searching as before.

Dixie Chicks first came together as a bluegrass quartet in Texas in 1989, later becoming a trio in 1995 when founding members (and sisters) Emily Robison (banjo/dobro) and Martie Maguire (fiddle/mandolin) were joined by 21-year-old Natalie Maines (daughter of guitarist/producer Lloyd Maines) as the group's new lead vocalist and guitarist. By the late 1990s, the classic Dixie Chicks trio lineup struck a stunning balance between the traditional Nashville sound and the contemporary influences of alternative rock and pop. In 2016, Columbia/Legacy have reissued the Dixie Chicks classic four studio albums: Wide Open Spaces (1998), Fly (1999), Home (2002) and Taking The Long Way (2006), newly remastered and available on vinyl and digital download.

Of Miles Davis's many bands, none was more influential and popular than the quintet with John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones. Davis's muted ballads and medium-tempo standards endeared him to the public. The horns' searing exposition of classics like "Salt Peanuts" and "Well, You Needn't" captivated musicians. The searching, restless improvisations of Coltrane intrigued listeners who had a taste for adventure. The flawless rhythm section became a model for bands everywhere. Steamin' With The Miles Davis Quintet is, in many respects representative of the total work of the quintet, it affords an excellent opportunity to examine just what this remarkable music was and how it was made. Such chemistry is inexplicable, and so, apparently, is the personality of the man who generated it.

One OK Rock is a Japanese power pop/alt-rock band that draws on the sound of blink-182 and Foo Fighters. Named for the time of the band's scheduled practice and pronounced the same as "one OK rock" in a Japanese accent, the group was established in 2005 by high schooler Toru (guitar), who teamed with bassist Ryota, vocalist Taka (formerly of the boy band NEWS), and another guitarist, the San Francisco-born Alex Onizawa, who had previously worked as a fashion model. After a string of successful shows around Tokyo, the band debuted with the EP One OK Rock in mid-2006, followed by another mini-album, Keep It Real, by the end of the same year. In 2006, One OK Rock finally found a permanent drummer in Tomoya, who played on their first single…
