Hitting the road with Ani DiFranco as a follow-up to her national touring debut with no less a superstar than Tracy Chapman, Gaby Moreno will have to follow-up her debut album, Still the Unknown with a title more befitting her potential breakout. She’s already got some surprises up her sleeve for the second act.

David Thomas Broughton vs. 7 Hertz (Acuarela). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Fast boats, Ferraris and 3-day stubble. Yes, Crockett and Tubbs are back — but the new Miami Vice draws surprisingly few comparisons to the iconic TV series. Our man in the Keys, Steve Stav, delivers a hard-boiled report on Michael Mann’s latest crime drama.

Belly of the Sun (Blue Note). Review by David Whited.
