In Brief

* * * Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, "Code Red," Jive. This album manages to be accessible without compromising the genre's energetic street spirit. Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince's coupling of bumping bass lines and smooth R&B--brilliantly; woven together by producers Pete Rock, Dallas Austin and Teddy Riley--make this album irresistible.

New albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor) to four stars (excellent).
