    Ruminations from the Royal Court

    Riley "B.B." King presides so dominantly over the past and present of modern blues that his influence, innovations, and massive talents are easily taken for granted, and at worst overlooked. The most visible and commercially successful blues artist o...

    In Defense of the Gods of Grunge

    Pearl Jam's got it bad. Unquestionably the most interesting of the grunge bands to follow in Nirvana's wake, Pearl Jam has suffered at the hands of everyone. Even with all manner of concessions to the marketplace -- a video, a tour with the help of a...

    The Last Days of Sound and Fury

    Battering-ram six-string power and inescapable melody have long been the tools of Bob Mould's trade. Through the hostile punk punches of his HYsker DY days in the Eighties and the sublime soaring of his pop-leaning early-Nineties excursion with Sugar...

    Rotations

    Bauhaus Crackle (Beggars Banquet) Bauhaus's revered position in the world of gothic music has an auspicious origin. Their debut single from 1979 was a nine-minute, tongue-in-cheek horror-fest homage to Bela Lugosi, the actor best known for ...

    Two Turntables and a Gender Gap

    In the bowels of Miami Beach's Marlin Hotel is a small, exotic, denlike space. Narrow and dark, the room is painted a rich wine color. Strips of mirror cover the ceiling and stretch down the walls, alternating with billowing burgundy and navy batik c...

    Separate but Equal

    A lot of groups would love to be given credit for having started an entire genre of music, but Bristol, England's Massive Attack has neither the time nor the inclination to bask in its status as the "Godfathers of Trip-Hop." As the British and Americ...

    Moving in the Right Direction

    Raul Midon has some less-than-surprising observations about life as a musician in South Florida and ways to improve that life. "I was going to move to L.A.," he admits. "I was like, 'I've had it here. I have a good scene here, but I've got to get whe...

    Get Back at the Shack

    Hialeah is home to many a rickety warehouse. Most of the buildings contain gritty auto- and electronic-repair facilities, small machine shops, and the odd wholesale business. But one particular structure, a flat-roofed row of industrial-use units abo...

    Exile in Adultville

    On her great but not-quite-brilliant 1993 debut Exile in Guyville, Liz Phair sang in "Fuck and Run" of the longing for "the kind of guy who makes love 'cause he's in it." A year later, on the good but not-quite-great Whip-Smart, she yearned to "Go We...

    All That Brass

    Close your eyes and listen. You could be in any jazz room in New York City. Open your eyes, take a look around, and you may still be fooled, for the venue has the ambiance of a sophisticated Big Apple jazz club. But this isn't New York, it's Miami Be...

    Seven Inches to Salvation

    The 1992 pairing of "Jim Motherfucker" and "Spine," the third release by the Columbus, Ohio, punk quartet Gaunt, is one of the best arguments I can think of for the necessity of the seven-inch single in an era of compact-disc convenience. Probably on...

    Not His Cross to Bear

    Crossover. Record executives dream of it. Most Latin performers covet it. The very thought of it makes Marc Anthony a little sick. "Every time I hear the word 'crossover' something goes off in my stomach," says Anthony, who last year became the ...

    The Year of Chucho

    In the future, a jazz historian leafing through old files of playbills and press clips could easily determine that 1998 was the year of Cuban piano player Jesus "Chucho" Valdes. It seems that Jesus has indeed been everywhere of late: playing a solo c...

    State Secrets

    It's a broiling 92-degree Miami day. Fish are sweating, but Grant Livingston isn't. He's leaning back in a white plastic chair, sipping from a vat of iced tea. Shielded from the searing sun by his Panama hat and the green-and-white-striped umbrella o...
