LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

I magine a mini-South by Southwest for blues lovers headed toward Fantasy Island, and you'll have some idea of what the annual Delbert McClinton Sandy Beaches Cruise is all about.

Jaunty and syncopated, the music of New Orleans is as distinctive as the city's cuisine, a gumbo of Dixieland jazz and the parade bands that have strutted down the city's streets for more than a century.

Tina Turner may be 60, but her strength goes on, the steel claw, the rock-and-roll mouth, the woman with a city's worth of heat to burn for, and her new album is intimate in its quietude as well as its noise.

Also, Bob Marley's legacy continues to grow, the rap duo of Prince Paul and The Automator, the low-profile supergroup Continental Drifters, and lots more!
