    James Quine

    Dan Auerbach will be the musical guest on tonight's Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Tune in to catch Dan perform a song off his solo debut album, Keep It Hid, out earlier this week on Nonesuch. Also scheduled to appear on tonight's show are actress Isla Fisher (Confessions of a Shopaholic) and recent Grammy night collaborators with Stevie Wonder, the Jonas Brothers.

    Late Night with Conan O'Brien airs on NBC starting at 12:35 AM ET. Next week marks Conan's last in New York City before he heads to the West Coast and takes the Tonight Show reins from Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon fills the Late Night slot.

    "Some musicians just get it," writes Chris Talbott of The Associated Press. "Dan Auerbach is one of those."

    Talbott finds Keep It Hid "every bit as brainy, engaging and powerful as" Dan's work with The Black Keys ("two young guys so talented and in tune with each other, they're like a chemical reaction") and also sees him "stepping out, stretching a bit" on the new solo project. As with the band's most recent effort, Attack & Release, the sound of Keep It Hid "is much more diverse than the band's early, effervescent blues-rock work, and shows an understanding of what really makes rock roll."

    The new record is "full of tasty sounds," says Talbott, material that "is often dark, perfect for Auerbach's preternatural voice," and also exhibits Dan's "range with the occasional ballad or plaintiff cry of the heartbroken soul man."

    "What happens when a jazz virtuoso sets his sights on a cinematic sound?" ask All Things Considered host Audie Cornish. "Pat Metheny has done just that on his new album, evoking the plush and soaring landscapes of film scores. Reviewer Tom Moon says it's among the most ambitious projects of Metheny's long career." "He's pushing forward, seeking breathtaking and profoundly new vistas," says Moon. "It's got the epic journeys of the Pat Metheny Group and the fiery improvisational exchanges of his more recent jazz sessions. It's also a stretch beyond those horizons into textures and atmospheres not often heard in jazz." Hear the All Things Considered piece here.

    Jeff Parker's new album, Suite for Max Brown, is "a demonstration of how jazz mixes it up with other musics these days," says NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross music critic Kevin Whitehead. "Parker invokes his days as a crate-diving club DJ, a job where you can juxtapose beats from all over as long as they serve or creatively stem the flow." You can hear the review here.
