Trombone Shorty album displays another growth spurt

Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews reinforces his commitment to New Orleans on “Parking Lot Symphony,” a rich, energetic collection of funk, R&B, and even dirges and pop. As is his calling card, Andrews broadens the city’s musical traditions without straying too far as his voice finds new hues and shades of expression.

‘The Circle’ a tale of technology run amok

So the future may be shaping up to be just as horrible as the pessimists have been predicting, but with a few unexpected twists. Yes, people will become enslaved, but not to governments, but to social media and search engine companies. And yes, people will be watched and monitored, but not against their will, but with their permission. They'll just give it all away, freely.

Lockwood’s memoir of growing up as a priest’s daughter

Patricia Lockwood’s memoir “Priestdaddy” (Riverhead Books, $27) is her chronicle of living in the family of a Catholic priest. Her father married a Catholic and later converted to Christianity, eventually becoming a Lutheran minister. Later, he became interested in the Catholic tradition, and petitioned the church for a dispensation to become a married Catholic priest. (The church allows the special status for ministers of other faiths whom it considers fit for the priesthood.) Lockwood takes readers through her adventures with her priest father who plays guitar and likes lying about in his underwear.
