Fifty-five years after first forming in London, The Who is back with an album of brand-new songs. WHO, due out later this fall, will be the band's 12th studio record. It includes the first single, "Ball & Chain," a gritty swamp-rock critique of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp and the powers that have kept it open.

"Down in Guantanamo," Roger Daltrey sings, "we still got that ball and chain. That pretty piece of Cuba designed to cause men pain."

The singer and songwriter Eddie Money, whose singles like "Take Me Home Tonight," "Baby Hold On" and "Two Tickets to Paradise" were an archetype for 1970s and 1980s rock radio, died Friday morning in Los Angeles at age 70.

Less than a month ago, Money announced that he had stage IV esophageal cancer, which had metastasized to his liver, lymph nodes and stomach.

Historians and critics have pored over the recordings of these jazz greats like Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Stan Getz so exhaustively, it might feel like they've left no stone unturned. And yet, fans are seeing a slew of exciting new discoveries lately from these and other artists — so-called "lost" albums by some of the biggest names in jazz.

Ken Burns is our great explainer, television's finest illustrator. He's a filmmaker who gives us what we know from fresh angles, so that we can learn more and appreciate topics on a deeper level. Whether his subject is the Civil War or baseball, Burns has made an art of divining what most Americans know about a subject and then putting an arm around our collective shoulder and murmuring, "Yes, but have you seen this?"

We're starting of with music from the German Baroque this week, and of course we'll include J.S. Bach, but we'll also look at some composers who might be lesser-known to some. Our series of the Liszt transcriptions of the nine Beethoven symphonies continues with the Symphony No. 2, and later we'll listen to the second symphony of another composer, Jean Sibelius. And there's plenty more, all starting right after All Things Considered.

Our mission is to share the joy of dance and to inspire and enrich the community through excellence in ballet.  Being the premiere Space Coast icon since 2003, we strive to present a unique vision of live performance with our talented dancers from the local community and guest artists from around the world.  We invite you to join in our mission and become part of the SCBC family.
