PJ Harvey ... Eels ... Tracy Chapman ... Sparklehorse ... Giant Sand. That's a diverse bunch of distinguished pop artists, but they have at least one thing in common besides piles of rave reviews--a bloke named John Parish. His teamings with these pop auteurs have quietly established the low-key musician and producer as the consummate collaborator.

Musicians Polly Jean Harvey and John Parish don't believe in compromise, but they do believe in marriage -- a creative union in which ideas must be 100% agreed upon by both parties. It might sound laughably utopian for traditional matrimony, but that philosophy has yielded the near-perfect artifact of an album in "A Woman a Man Walked By," released this week. Prickly, wicked and tender, the 10-song collection sounds wrenched from mythical landscapes and the fiery imbroglio of the id.

Three out of the four musicians backing up Polly Jean Harvey on Monday night at the El Rey Theatre wore fedoras onstage -- encouraging news for those who mourn the death of millinery, and that's setting aside Harvey's own white Art Deco headpiece, which called to mind a crowned rack of lamb. Since her emergence in the early 1990s as one of the most daring voices in alternative rock, Harvey has become something of a style icon.

*** 1/2 JOHN PARISH & POLLY JEAN HARVEY, "Dance Hall at Louse Point," Island. In this side project with her bandmate, Harvey takes her familiar themes--obsession, deception, dread and emotional extremes--even closer to the edge than she has under her own name. * Albums and other items in the Gift Guide are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good) and four stars (excellent).

PJ Harvey, who dominated 1995 critics' polls with her album "To Bring You My Love," is collaborating with guitarist John Parish, who played on her 1995 tour, writing the lyrics for his music. The team--which will use a name other than Harvey's usual PJ Harvey moniker--has recorded 11 songs in a London studio, and an album is expected by Christmas.

R&B duo K-Ci & JoJo will offer a bonus track on the first 200,000 copies of their next album, "X," when it's released Dec. 5--but it's not by them. Rather it will be the first new song by the group Jodeci, of which they are also members, in five years. The idea, explains MCA Senior Vice President of Marketing Jayne Simon, is to both maximize first-week interest in the album and to lay the groundwork for a new Jodeci album, tentatively scheduled for June. . . .

Recently I was contacted by a deputy from the City of Industry Sheriff's Station. He and his partner had been dispatched to meet an emergency call. A wife had returned from work to find her husband dead on the living room floor. When I arrived at the home of the deceased, I was greatly impressed by the compassion, professionalism and concern of the two young officers. They were consoling the bereaved wife, assisting in locating family members, contacting the coroner, etc. Their calm presence brought a certain peace and order to a distressing situation.

For the first time, Calendar's guide to keeping up with what's exciting in pop on an album budget of $50 a month features two albums that contain the same track.
