Six musicians are in a circle in the living room — on one side, trumpet and trombone; on the other, cello, viola and violin; and in the middle, the elephant in the room — Stewart's tuba.<p>The musicians are rehearsing for a concert at Lincoln Center at the end of September; it's a release party for Stewart's new album, <em>Connections: Mind the Gap</em>. The band is a double quartet — a classical string quartet, along with Stewart's jazz band of 25 years.

Five years later, the student is on the music scene, winning praise for folk-rock songs that demonstrate a plain, sometimes flip poetry of their own.<p>D'Amato's new album is called <em>The Shipwreck from the Shore</em>.

When he arrived for his Tiny Desk Concert, the 36-year-old Kentucky native sauntered in sleepy-eyed, wearing jeans, a pair of old canvas tennis shoes, no socks and a well-worn button-down blue shirt, one of only two identical shirts he said he had in rotation while on tour.

Odds are the name Albert Johnson doesn't ring a bell. But if you're a hip-hop fan, you might recognize the author by another name: Prodigy.
