The ’70 jazz-inflected rock band has endured as an icon of musical accomplishment and erudite dark wit, with songs that dip toes in the pool of love and mock anyone who’d dive in. Walter Becker and Donald Fagan have assembled an 11-piece band to play songs from the breadth of the band’s career including a few unusual covers that are as eclectic as fans would expect.

Led Zeppelin’s hot again after guitarist Jimmy Page recently remastered the band’s first three albums and reissued them with previously unreleased tracks, most of which are worth hearing. The all-female Zepparella is not as good as the original, but it’s definitely not coasting on the novelty of their concept. Robert Plant’s vocals loan themselves to a woman’s touch, and singer Noelle Doughty does them justice.

Pop duo MKTO — Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller — are clean-cut, upbeat, and their hit, “Classic,” references the Jackson 5 musically and lyrically. They appreciate classic R&B with an upright, uncomplicated enthusiasm, but the songs are so immediate that it feels mean to complain that they’re too nice. They sing “I want to kiss you like Prince,” but nothing suggests that they mean that in the weird way.
