NEWS/OPINION

MUSIC
The unusually instrumented jazz quartet Fantastic Merlins summons the freedom of a jazz combo and the daring of an avant-garde aggregation. And Marianne Dissard turns heartache into a cathartic Americana record with big gulps of French lyrics.
FOOD

FILM & TV
Che Part One chronicles Che Guevara’s all-star Socialist team-up with Fidel Castro to overthrow Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. Part Two is more of a downer. And Adventureland jostles between bleak characters and childish boner jokes.
ARTS/LIT
The death row drama Coyote on a Fence avoids becoming polemic and instead focuses on human connection and dignity. And much of UNM's public art is hidden in plain sight.
