A preview of upcoming conversations and improvisations with Marian McPartland and the brightest stars from the world of jazz.
Rank #1: Tony Bennertt, 1990.
Ever-popular song stylist Tony Bennett was McPartland's guest for the first time in 1990. Bennett vocalizes American popular songs like nobody else can. When he was starting out, a voice teacher, Miriam Spier, famously told him: "Don't imitate singers, imitate musicians." So, Bennett decided to emulate Art Tatum. He also credits his relaxed delivery to the inspiration of Mildred Bailey. On this edition of Piano Jazz, Bennett sings "Stay as Sweet as You Are" and "Imagination." There's no need to guess who's playing the accompaniment.
Rank #2: Jess Stacy, 1982.
This week's Piano Jazz presents an episode from the early years of the program with guest Jess Stacy (1904 – 1995), who came out of retirement to appear on the show in 1982. One of the leading pianists of the swing era, Stacy was best known for his work with the Benny Goodman Orchestra and had a prolific career before stepping back from the music world in the 1950s. In this classic session from the archives, Stacy needs no introduction as he starts the show with a solo performance of "Dancing Fool." McPartland joins to end the hour with "St. Louis Blues."
Live performances and conversations in which artists talk about their work, their process, and themselves. Genre-blind but open-eared. Hosted by John Schaefer.
Rank #1: Bombay Bicycle Club Finds Solace in Music
British guitar band Bombay Bicycle Club cites New York bands like LCD Soundsystem, The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs as inspiration. But since they signed to Island as teenagers more than a decade ago, they’ve run the gamut from indie-jangly-folky, then electro-based, and now growly yet melancholy guitar-based pop. Now back together after some time away, there is new hope in their riff-driven hooky sound, which is about finding solace in music. Bombay Bicycle Club joins us in the studio to preview songs from their forthcoming new record, Everything Else Has Gone Wrong. - Caryn Havlik Watch the session here:
Rank #2: American Troubadour Steve Earle Covers Texan Great Guy Clark
Watch the session here: Steve Earle has been many things – a Grammy-winning musician, a political activist, a writer, an actor. He’s also, a music fan. Specifically, he’s a fan of two late, great Texas songwriters, Townes Van Zandt, and Guy Clark. Ten years ago, he released an album called Townes, where he covered that singer’s work. Now it’s Guy Clark’s turn. Steve Earle and The Dukes have recorded a whole album of Clark’s songs – the record is called Guy, and it brings Steve Earle back to our studio.

Rank #1: A. Sinclair “Weeds” [PREMIERE].
For our final Song of the Day of 2019 we’re pulling the cover off a new single from one of our all-time favorite local rockers: Aaron Sinclair. After his tenure with Boston’s The Lot Six, Sinclair backed a bit away from his punk duds, relocated to Austin and doubled down on straight ahead rock n roll under the name A. Sinclair. Sinclair’s brutally honest brand of working class storytelling and knack for pop-leaning phrases have remained a constant in light of many crests and valleys for more than a decade now, and when his band steps on stage, it’s a full throttle experience. This prolific songwriter has just added another bold track to his already impressive discography, coinciding with a release show tonight at The Mohawk, so get out of the weeds of 2019 with…well…”Weeds”! –Jack Anderson
Rank #2: The Harlem Gospel Travelers: “Am I Doing Enough”.
When a group of young musicians is knowledgeable and respectful enough of a certain craft, age is no measure of maturity. Take the four gentlemen in The Harlem Gospel Travelers, who despite the fact that the eldest is only twenty two, collectively possess decades worth of soul and gospel know-how. The performance discipline and classic gospel mindset embodied by these native New Yorkers has earned the Travelers some impressive guest appearances on their debut album, including drummer Aaron Frazer of Durand Jones & The Indications and Arctic Monkeys engineer Loren Humphrey. At ten well-rounded tracks, He’s On Time serves as an exceptional introduction to The Harlem Gospel Travelers, and you can hear the full thing now, starting off with a video recorded in the quartet’s home turf: “Am I Doing Enough”! –Jack Anderson Order He’s on Time Photo: Jacob Blickenstaff

Rank #1: American Icons: ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ — Part Two.
A half century later, Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” is still shaping our future. With no help from CGI, the movie predicted private space travel, artificial intelligence and much of Apple’s product line. It showed the promise and perils of technology and explored life’s biggest mystery: Are we alone in the universe? In Part Two of our look at the movie in our American Icons series, we visit the same IBM research lab that helped inspire HAL. We meet CIMON, a real-life AI robot on the International Space Station and Garrett Reisman, a former NASA astronaut who blasted the “Blue Danube” in the space shuttle. Plus we speak to New York Times critic Wesley Morris, filmmakers Christopher Nolan and Tom Hanks, artist James Turrell and U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith. Learn more about your ad choices.

Rank #2: All Shakespeare All the Time.
On the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, we look at the ways his work continues to change and adapt. In the 19th century, Shakespeare’s work got caught up in minstrel shows — and African-American actors are still struggling to claim the Bard as their own. Also, we find out how a father-son team is changing the way Shakespeare sounds by bringing back his original pronunciation. And we go inside the pioneering immersive theater experience “Sleep No More,” which might be the longest-running Shakespeare adaptation ever. Learn more about your ad choices.

The latest articles from New Sounds Podcasts
Rank #1: #3893: With Guitarist Guy Buttery (Special Podcast)
South African guitarist Guy Buttery visits the studio to perform virtuosic feats of bending, tapping, picking, harmonics, and other techniques and textures yet to be named for guitar. Hear music from his latest record, his sixth, a self-titled wonder of collaborative tunes. Plus, music from the late Malian guitarist and griot Tiécoro Sissoko.
Rank #2: Psychedelic World Music (Special Podcast)
Listen to world music that veers into psychedelic territory on this New Sounds, with Native-American inspired percussive drone music and Afrobeat from Brazil in music by Bixiga 70. Hear a mix of Afro-Ethiopian rock and jazz from the Brazilian band, Bixiga70, whose name is clearly a nod to the Afrobeat pioneered by Fela Kuti and drummer Tony Allen (with whom Mauricio Fleury from the band studied with.) This brass-heavy sound bounces through boundaries to harvest textures of Guinean and Malian mandingo from Guinea and Mali, soukous from the Congo and ethio-jazz. Also, there’s music from a Chinese string band, Red Chamber, and their pipa, zheng, zhongruan, among other Chinese lutes and zithers. On this tune,"Ah Ya Zein," they accompany oud player Gordon Grdina, and are augmented by all kinds of percussion from other traditions. Then, hear “tribal folkadelia” from Flamingods, with musicians based in London & Bahrain, and operatic trance music from Toronto-based artist, Alexandra Mackenzie, who records under the moniker Petra Glynt. Also, listen to a song from Nathan Bowles, a pounding tribute in percussive drone to the dwindling population of the Nansemond tribe who were part of the Powhatan confederacy in Virginia. Plus, explosive music from the Belgian brass klezmer punk band Kermesz a l'est, and more.
