Page 10 POST-GAZETTE, OCTOBER 25, 2013 Fact , gX reviewing the best.., forgelting the rest CASSADEE PoPE - FRAME BY FRAME Republic Nashville Cassadee Pope is making her mark in the country music arena with her exciting debut album 'Frame By Frame.' The petite powerhouse was the Season 3 winner of 'The Voice' with Blake Shelton as her mentor. It wasn't hard to realize Pope's talent, as she constantly hit the #1 spot on iTunes with her renditions of top country tunes. The win earned her a recording contract and Republic Nashville was the ve- hicle to take her to Billboard's # 1 Top Country Albums. Pope is confident and philosophical in her music and writes with sincerity. Check out the energetic, initial track "Good Times," followed the head-spinning love of "Champagne," the album's first single, "Wasting All These Tears" is masterful, the hurt of "I Wish I Could Break Your Heart" is powerful. Pope co-wrote the next three tunes, the catchy "Everybody Sings," the insecurity of "You Hear a Song" and maintains the roller coaster ride with "This Car." Feel the emotion as Pope delivers the ballad "One Song Away," plus the infidelity of "Easier to Lie" and two more songs co-written by Pope -- "11" which has Cassadee wearing her heart on her sleeve, and the final cut "Proved You Wrong." There is magic, hon- esty and a whole lot to like about Cassadee's music! RED HOT +' FELA Knitting Factory Records Fela Kuti passed 16 years ago, but his music lives on, not only in the hearts of his fans, but also on Broadway. Red Hot, an AIDS awareness organization spearheaded the drive to release this CD with a host of Fela classics covered by top artists. "Buy Africa" (L'orchestre De La Katuba) sets the Afro- beat mood, trailed by the anthem "Lady" (tUnE-yArDs), "Yel- low Fever" and "Zombie" (Spoek Mathambo), "No Buredi" (Nneka), "Who No Know Go Know" and "Gentleman" (Just A Band), "Trouble Sleep Yanga Wake Am" (My Morning Jacket) and "Sorrow, Tears & Blood" (Kronos Quartet). Superhuman Happiness contributed "ITI'," with Tony Allen delivering "Afro- disco Beat 2013," Gender Infinity surfaces via "Highlife Time" and King has the fmal say with "Go Slow." Red Hot CD! ICONA POP - THIS IS... Big Beat-Atlantic Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt are Icona Pop, a Swedish duo that have earned themselves the status of internation- ally acclaimed pop-stars. Their single "I Love It" featuring Charlie XCX was released online and has passed the two million mark. That's just the tip of the iceberg, as they've added ten more infectious tracks to their album. Check out potential winners as, "All Night," the confident "We Got the World," the vibrant "Ready For the Weekend," the boastful "Girlfriend," and hit the midway mark with "In the Stars." The duo penned half the songs on their debut album, continuing to rock via "On a Roll," wasting time with "Just Another Night," the pleading "Hold On," plus the driving "Light Me Up," and it all comes to an end after the romantic, powerful track "Then We Kiss." No-holds-barred music! GEORGE COTSIRILOS TRIO - VARIATIONS OA2-Origin Records San Francisco-based guitarist George Cotsirilos unites with bassist Robb Fischer and drummer Ron Marabuto to create a mainstream guitar sound that will be music to your ears.

The roster of the varied artists he has worked with include, Pharaoh Sanders, Etta James, Chuck Israels, Jane Olivor, Mel Martin, and the R&B band, The Whispers. George starts off with a bit of bop on "A Walk for Ethel," the solid "I Know You Know," displaying a delicate touch on Ivan Lins's "Doce Presenca," as well as on Fisher's tasty "Sambrosia" and the haunting "Chimera," Cotsirilos shows his dexterity on both acoustic and electric guitar -- check out the fluid "1937," the brief, but pretty "Justin Case," the smooth sound of "Blues For The J Man," plus Burke & Van Heusen's tender "But Beautiful," with the final brush stroke to this masterpiece being the strutting "Madrugadora." A nice clean, precise guitar sound that calls out loudly[ DEAR DUMB DIARY - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK Lakeshore Records In the film, 'Dear Dumb Diary,' Jamie (Emily Alyn Lind) marches to the beat of her own music video.

Connolly had hun- dreds at Day Square and up the street in the Heights, hundreds were doing likewise for Walsh.

Too close to call but a good week for Walsh.
