This week, we have 51 hot new shows from everyone who’s anyone, in every kind of thing. Highlights include jazz great Terence Blanchard, R&B crooner Maxwell, a bongload of reggae, De La Soul’s best-of tour and Jamie Foxx’s arena-sized music show. Not to mention a smelting pot of metal, plenty of punk, Tito Puente Jr. and that David Cook dude. — D.X. Ferris
