Director's Cuts: Third Album's A Charm

An update on two artists whose music has evolved since each performed on Weekend Edition a while back: Vienna Teng and Kaki King. Vienna Teng's forthcoming album, Dreaming Through The Noise, intimately showcases her talent as a pianist and vocalist. King has moved past the acoustic instrumentals of her earlier discs with her latest album, Until We Felt Red, coming in August.
