Then, acclaimed fashion photographer and director Bruce Weber -- whose documentary on Chet Baker is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year -- shares a jazz-tinged Pick Three.

And, Jonathan Reichman -- the intellectual property lawyer and expert known as the Copy Cat -- guides us through the boom of lyrics Web sites like Rap Genius and the tricky copyright issues surrounding them.
