It is a sign of great artistry when performers can take a composer's lesser works and make them compelling. That Fischer and Helmchen have done so with Schubert's modest violin and piano works to such joyous effect is remarkable. The revelation comes when Fischer joins Helmchen at the piano in the sublime Fantasia.

Julia Fischer and Martin Helmchen adopt a rather quick tempo and a light touch, hardly too heavily pedaled in the piano part, in the opening of the first movement of Schubert's First Sonata in D Major, a work that could lend itself, slight as it may be, to overblown Romantic rhetoric (although not in leaner and more spirited readings like that of Joseph Szigeti, who recorded the Sonata with Andor F”ldes in 1942, a performance re-released in Sony's "Masterworks Portrait" series 52538 in 1992).

Preceded by the singles Priestess and Honey, the debut full-length The Witch from London "industrial spiritual" band Pumarosa is a collection of songs that channel the undercurrents of the present day: collectivism, frustration, euphoria, feminism, politics, aggression and love. Packed full of genius - with a few dips that promised more - for the most part, this does play a little like a Greatest Hits. An impressive achievement from such a new band.

Americana has had a banner few years, to put it mildly, and the roots of its current incarnation can be traced back to Rodney Crowell. The Texas-born songwriter has collaborated with everyone from Emmylou Harris to Waylon Jennings, all while maintaining a solo career that's netted him two Grammys and an induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. It's fitting, then, that Crowell's new album Close Ties unfolds like a history lesson, both of his personal mythology and the music that shaped it. Produced by Jordan Lehning and Kim Buie, the 10-song collection considers Crowell's influences while looking to the future, each song delivered with Crowell's slight growl and poet's eye for detail. Also, the album features guest appearances from Rosanne Cash, Sheryl Crow and John Paul White.

The gifted American guitarist draws out the fine lines between contemporary East and West Coast jazz with two equally emotive bands. The East Coast ensemble, featuring Nicholas Payton on trumpet and the energetic fizz of Jeff "Tain" Watts drumming, presents five Eubanks compositions ranging from the potent to the elegiac. The West Coast group, featuring saxophonist Bill Pierce as lead and Mino Cinelu on percussion, delivers five expertly reshaped covers spanning Ellington and Marvin Gaye. The East is funkier, the West more Latinate, and the playing exceptional throughout.
