- Washington-raised jazz artist, educator and ambassador Billy Taylor has died. Read the Post's obituary here, and read the Washington City Paper's appreciation here.

- More sad news: Bobby Farrell of the disco band Boney M has also passed away. He was 61.

- The Washington Post Style section's annual "In/Out" list lands in Saturday's paper but is online now. In the musical realm, our colleagues Monica Hesse and Dan Zak declare M.I.A., Florence + The Machine and Witch House out. Meantime, "NKOTBSB," Robyn and Moombahton are in. We second these emotions.

- Last week, we praised Daft Punk's marvelous soundtrack to "Tron: Legacy." Today, we're reading up on the history of their robot helmets.
