Ben Harper sounds like a mystic on the phone, as might be expected from a seasoned, California-raised musician who has accumulated much wisdom and knowledge in his more than 20-year career. With a reunion tour and new album, Call It What It Is , Harper's reconvened with his long-standing creative peers, the Innocent Criminals. They'll perform Sunday at the Fillmore Philadelphia. The songwriter famous for blending genres isn't short on inspiration for his new one. In fact, he's mad as hell.

Ry Cooder, Sharon White & Ricky Skaggs The old-time string band supergroup consisting of ace bluegrass and traditional-country keeper of the flame Ricky Skaggs, his singer-guitarist wife Sharon White (of the bluegrass family dynasty the Whites), and virtuosic and rarely touring musical omnivore Ry Cooder played in the fall at the Keswick Theatre. And, thank heaven, for those who missed their exploration of gospel Americana, they're back. Contributing to the freewheeling familial atmosphere on the band's Saturday-night-in-Delaware date will be Cooder's son, Joachim, on drums and White's father, Buck, on piano.

Teddy Thompson & Kelly Jones / Dori Freeman Back in 2007, Teddy Thompson released Upfront & Down Low , an album of covers of classic country songs associated with the likes of George Jones, Merle Haggard, and Dolly Parton. At first hearing, Little Windows , the British singer and guitarist's new album of duets with American singer Kelly Jones, would seem to be revisiting the same concept, albeit with the added satisfying counterpoint and hopefulness provided by Jones' Dolly to Thompson's Porter Wagoner.

Grandchildren For nearly 10 years, Aleks Martray has led Philadelphia's Grandchildren in an acoustic-electronic mix of highly orchestrated, handily arranged folk-pop music. He's like James Bond film composer John Barry, but without a martini-soaked spy to guide him. Grandchildren's layered, cosmopolitan sound - on albums such as Everlasting (2010), Golden Age (2013), and, most grandly, Zuni (2015) - is so richly dramatic, you keep expecting a film to accompany the soundtracky music.

The Temptations & the Four Tops The Temptations have hits on hits on hits. Granted, when they roll into Glenside tonight, they'll be singing with only one of the original members - Otis Williams. But the Motown legends have amassed such an impressive pile of iconic R&B, pop, and soul smashes that American Idol contestants could sing the hits, and it would still be a blast. Their top five tunes on the Web today - "My Girl," "Get Ready," "Ain't Too Proud to Beg," "The Way You Do the Things You Do," and "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone" - are brilliant in any and all contexts.
