>APPALACHIAN JOURNEY Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, Mark O'Connor (Sony Classical) James Taylor and Alison Krauss join these cross-pollinating classical and country performers as they search for the holy, haunted heart of American music.

TIME TO DISCOVER Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise (RCA) And a most pleasant Surprise it is. Growly soul man Bradley gives the blues a fresh and funky urban twist. Detroit smart-mouth rapper Kid Rock guests on two hot tracks.

THE PIZZA TAPES Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, Tony Rice (Acoustic Disc) The late Grateful Dead-head picks and sings in his high, lonesome wail as he and pals revisit such folk and country oldies as "Long Black Veil."
