Checking out this week's new music releases...



Album of the Week: Well-credentialed Detroit drummer and bandleader Drew Schultz offers originals as well as Motown and other R&B covers on "Live at 20 Front Street" (Pax), recorded with his band the Broken Habits last year at the Lake Orion venue. Schultz's scholarly between-song commentary, brief but illuminating, only enhances the crack performances of these 20 songs.
