In Brief

May 14, 2000|STEVE HOCHMAN

*** 1/2 Jeff Buckley, "Mystery White Boy," Columbia. Buckley's 1997 drowning marked the loss of a remarkable artist who had barely started his career. So any collection of concert performances--where his mix of Zeppelin-esque power and soaring elegance was most arresting--would hold historic and sentimental value. This assortment from a mid-'90s tour, though, fully captures his talent and vision with frayed excursions traveling from dreamy whispers to volcanically emotional bursts, all sung in the voice of a fallen angel.
