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.

    Jonny Greenwood’s soundtrack to Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film, Inherent Vice, is out now on CD and digitally, with the vinyl to follow March 3. An adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel, Inherent Vice, now playing in select theaters in NYC and LA, is set in the tail end of the psychedelic ’60s. The soundtrack features nine compositions by Greenwood, an unreleased Radiohead tune performed by members of Supergrass, plus other recordings from the movie’s era. The New York Times calls it an "excellent playlist." Additional performers include The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Neil Young, Can, and The Marketts, among others.

    John Adams's album City Noir has made NPR's list of the Ten Best Classical Albums of 2014. "[T]here was such a bounty of phenomenal albums released this year that the selection process was a joy," writes NPR's Anastasia Tsioulcas. She calls saxophonist Timothy McAllister "outstanding" and says "the performances by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, led by David Robertson, are invigorating and top-notch." The New York Times's Anthony Tommasini includes The Met's production of Adams's The Death of Klinghoffer among the Ten Best Classical Music Events of 2014, calling it "a searing yet ruminative work."
