The music world is used to seeing artists change styles: Pop and rock singers turn to country to help jump-start sales. English-speaking pop singers go to mariachi or other Spanish-language music and get away with it. But going from hip-hop to salsa? Marc Anthony raised eyebrows when he made that move in 1993, launching the most successful chapter in a musical career that began with commercials when he was 6 and has led to a second career as an actor.

Salsa music has been steadily gaining popularity in Los Angeles in the '90s--as evidenced by record sales and an increasing number of clubs devoted to the sensual, rhythmic style. The local salsa celebration moved Saturday night to the Hollywood Bowl, where a spectacular display of power and musicianship showed why fans are embracing the sound, which has long been associated chiefly in the United States with New York City.

Few would guess from the lilting, melodic strains of Lysa Flores' impressive debut album that one of the 24-year-old singer-songwriter's chief influences was X, the seminal Los Angeles punk-roots rock band. Yet Flores, who has been called the Joni Mitchell of Chicano rock, names X as a primary reason why she's making music. "They were romantic yet political, and somehow I related to that," the East L.A. native says of the veteran group.

By the time they enter their fifth decade of stardom, most pop performers are winding down--doing the old favorites on stage and recycling the long successful sound on record. The amount of new ideas or passion is normally minimal. Yet Celia Cruz--the undisputed "Queen of Salsa" for as long as anyone can remember--seems, after a three-year lull, to be picking up the pace again.

Branford Marsalis, as quixotic as ever, has another new album with his stylistically indefinable band, Buckshot LeFonque. (For the record, the name traces to a nickname once used by alto saxophonist Cannonball Adderley.) The new album, "Music Evolution," once again blends elements of funk, pop, rap, hip-hop and jazz in an uncategorizable melting pot.
