    Lunar eclipse - The Moon Festival searches for chance's bright light

    The Moon Festival churns out an impressive brand of vintage pop music, but, apparently, they can't dance. At least not the delicately timed ballet required by the Dallas musical community, where their efforts to fit in resemble nothing so much as Sha...

    Soul survivor - Four decades after his first record, Solomon Burke is still in the studio and in God's arms
