    Video: The Black Keys Talk to CNN.com

    The Black Keys have a precious couple of weeks off from their North American tour before hitting the road again in September for several weeks with the Kings of Leon and The Whigs.

    The band performed for a home-state crowd in Columbus last Friday. Reviewing the show for the Columbus Dispatch, Curtis Schieber describes the duo's latest Nonesuch release, Brothers, as a "defining" album for the band. "Rather than resetting the group's course, the album casts its essence in musical gold." The band's performance in Columbus "brought the audience to a fist-pumping fever." Read the concert review at dispatch.com.

    Band mates Patrick Carney and Dan Auerbach recently spoke with CNN.com about the making of their new album, their musical influences, and what makes their live set as feverishly good as described above. The secret to their success, says Dan: "Turn everything up really loud." You can watch the video interview, also featuring clips from album, below:

    "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.
