Shawn Mullins/``Soul's Core'' (Columbia)
Atlanta's award-winning Mullins is an old-fashioned guy: He crafts gorgeous character studies on acoustic guitar and works them out in front of live audiences more than 200 nights a year. This summer, Mullins received an unexpected lift when one of the country's most influential pop-rock stations added the hook-filled, electro-acoustic saga ``Lullaby'' from this album. There are other winners here, too, such as the heart-tugging homeless ballad ``Twin Rocks, Oregon'' and ``The Gulf of Mexico Noun 1.

Johnny Adams/``Man of My Word'' (Rounder)
New Orleans soul man Adams - dubbed the Tan Canary - sadly died this week at age 67 after a long battle with cancer. His ninth solo album for Rounder finds him in stirring voice, singing as beautifully as ever and maintaining the high standard of excellence in terms of both musicianship and material he set years ago. The songs here are rooted in the deep soul of such icons as Ann Peebles, Al Green and Otis Clay. On the sturdy ``Man of My Word,'' Adams covers William Bell's classic ``You Don't Miss Your Water'' and the Brook Benton/Dinah Washington chestnut ``Looking Back,'' and handles new tunes by such terrific writers as Dan Penn and Bobby Charles. There's also a slow, gritty blues with an ironic title - ``This Time I'm Gone for Good.'' Three and One Half Stars

Andy Bey/``Shades of Bey'' (Evidence)
Jazz singer-pianist Bey's latest effort ventures far from traditional jazz renditions and instead explores more challenging shades of material, from Brazilian to Afro-Cuban to atmospheric interpretations of Nick Drake's ``River Man'' and Thelonius Monk's ``Straight, No Chaser chaser

Backed by a hard-working, creative group that sometimes includes alto saxophonist Gary Bartz and drummer Victor Lewis, Bey is at his understated but powerful best on the poignant requiem ``Blood Count,'' where he perfectly captures the song's bittersweet bittersweet, name for two unrelated plants, belonging to different families, both fall-fruiting woody vines sometimes cultivated for their decorative scarlet berries. essence.

Ben Webster/``Ultimate Ben Webster'' (Verve)
Verve's ``Ultimate'' series enlists modern jazz artists to select favorite Verve cuts from past greats. On this wonderful volume, saxophonist James Carter sifts through Webster's work for the label, delivering a highly enjoyable album that shows off the onetime Duke Ellington orchestra member's many strengths. Although he's not considered an innovator, the late Webster stood tall as a tenor who could purr on ballads and tear his way through boogie-woogie stompers Stompers were first created in 1980 by Schaper Toys. These toys were battery-powered vehicles that ran on a single AA battery and featured all-wheel drive. They were driven by a single motor that turned both axles. . Both are in abundance here, and the album includes vocals by Dinah Washington and the Ravens, solos by Gerry Mulligan and Oscar Peterson, plus prime cuts with the Ralph Burns Orchestra. Webster even puts down the saxophone and plays piano on the album's first and last tracks, just like he would when performing. It's a warm tribute to a man whose sunny way with the saxophone has never quite been equaled. Four Stars

Stefon Harris/``A Cloud of Red Dust'' (Blue Note)
Vibraphonist Harris is one of the rising stars of jazz. Those who caught his work with Joe Henderson at either the Jazz Bakery or Catalina Bar & Grill earlier this year have been anxiously awaiting this debut, and Harris does not disappoint, delivering a passionate disc full of interesting songs that pull from a wide variety of influences. Harris likens the songs on this CD to chapters in a novel, linking them together with short, smooth musical transitions. It's an intriguing concept that doesn't always work, but the album contains plenty of exciting moments. Harris' playing is marvelous, and he gives musicians like pianist Mulgrew Miller, trombonist Steve Turre (who also utilizes seashells), and saxophonists Greg Osby and Steve Wilson plenty of room to explore post-bop fare. A complex, rewarding work. Three and One Half Stars
