Audio Mixer: Eric Sarafin. Recording information: Grandmaster Recording. Photographers: Richard Misrach; J.P. Plunier; Annalisa . Unknown Contributor Role: Ben Harper. More than just the testosterone Tracy Chapman, Ben Harper's WILL TO LIVE shows him to be an introspective songwriter whose musical horizons have broadened considerably on his third album. Having toured the prior two years with louder groups like Pearl Jam and PJ Harvey may have influenced Harper's decision to plug in. A wise choice, seeing as the material ranges from the moody ruminations of the title track (which brings to mind Chris Whitley's edgier work) to the juked-up delta blues of "Homeless Child." Elsewhere, Harper's muse runs to Curtis Mayfield vamps like "Mama's Trippin'," (complete with wah-wah guitar and wailing alto saxophone) to the sparse, spiritual vibe of "I Shall Not Walk Alone."
