    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...

    Can't Silence This Monk
