The RH Factor: Hard Groove, Roy Hargrove (Verve)

To such friends as D'Angelo and Erykah Badu—both of whom pitch in with vocals—this trumpeter is known as Roy "Hard Groove." Hear why on a fluid disc that jams and jolts with P-funk, electric Miles and jazzy hip-hop.

Soulive, Soulive (Blue Note) Culled from gigs last year, Soulive's third disc captures the dynamic keyboard-guitar-drums trio performing nine tracks of high-energy jazz-funk-rock.

Ritmo Caliente, Eddie Palmieri (Concord Picante) Pianist Palmieri, a key figure in Latin jazz, mixes it up with salsa, mambo and boleros driven by his own hot rhythms.

Paganini: After a Dream, Regina Carter (Verve) The large, bold sound of Paganini's vaunted violin defines this jazz fiddler's blues-tinged renditions of familiar classical works.
