Sunday, Jan. 27

KATHY CARLLILE -- Longtime local blues/rock singer Kathy Carllile has kept a low profile in recent years. But the diminutive belter -- whose voice is somewhat reminiscent of Janis Joplin, without the freak-out shrieks -- returns to the stage with her band, Tabasco. Fuzzy's Place (Sarig)

MISHA DICHTER -- A second-prize winner at the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, this compelling pianist has dominated in the late-Romantic repertoire for nearly 40 years. Judging by his high-energy performances (not to mention his youthful good looks), he's the Dick Clark of concert pianists. Dichter performs with the Georgian Chamber Players. Spivey Hall (Brown)

DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN -- Oh, brother. You've seen the movie. You've bought the soundtrack CD. You've read about the Nashville concert staging the songs from the movie's soundtrack. You've bought the CD of the concert staging songs from the movie's soundtrack. You've come to believe in the O Brother brand for all your old-timey music needs. You're falling sucker -- at least in part -- to some outstanding marketing. But you could do a lot worse than the Down From the Mountain tour, featuring Alison Krauss & Union Station (with Dan Tyminski; see article, p. 87), Emmylou Harris, Patty Loveless, Ralph Stanley, Norman Blake, Bob Neuwirth and a bunch more acts. Atlanta Civic Center (Sarig)

LUTHER VANDROSS -- His last few releases tanked, yet the undisputed king of sensuous R&B doesn't need a recent hit to make the girls swoon, sell out shows or win American Music Awards. As plush and sophisticated as the venue, the sexy Vandross is an old-school pro who works his audience like a puppeteer and won't leave a dry seat in the house. Fox Theatre (Horowitz)
