Many Nonesuch artists and their recent Nonesuch releases have made music critics' and fans' year-end best lists in 2014. Here, in words and music and in chronological order, is a look back at the year in Nonesuch music.

In the new video, Giddens takes viewers inside a vintage Voice-O-Graph booth and reflects on the power of music to bring people together across distances, generational and otherwise. Watch it here.

    Audra McDonald will bring her acclaimed portrayal of Billie Holiday from Lanie Robertson’s musical play Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill to HBO. Filming before a live audience at Café Brasil in New Orleans this month, the special will feature McDonald in her history-making performance as the jazz icon. Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill tells Billie Holiday’s life story through the songs that made her famous. Audra McDonald became Broadway’s most decorated performer when she won her sixth Tony Award for Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill earlier this year.
