In Brief

* * * The Neville Brothers, "Family Groove," A&M.; The Nevilles hit the comfort zone in giving the New Orleans R&B; tradition the fully contemporary spin the group has been aiming for since 1989's "Yellow Moon." All the family trademarks--the wickedly funky title track, a potent version of Steve Miller's "Fly Like an Eagle," Aaron's pop-soul balladry, socially conscious lyrics--finally sound like they flow from a single source, not separate elements grafted together.
