    Listen: Chris Thile Performs on WNYC's "All of It with Alison Stewart"
    Nate Ryan

    Chris Thile—who hosted Nonesuch label mates Rachael & Vilray, Rachael Price, and Gabriel Kahane on the latest episode of his public radio show Live From Here from its new home at The Town Hall in New York City—stopped by WNYC studios to chat with All of It host Alison Stewart about Live From Here and perform a couple songs. "As well as being the host of Live From Here, Chris Thile is an excellent mandolin player, a multiple Grammy winner, a 2012 MacArthur Fellow, and he wrapped up a residency at Carnegie Hall earlier this year," says Stewart. "Are you getting a theme here? He is really good at what he does." He performs the all-too-timely "Elephant in the Room," a Song of the Week from the radio show recorded on his 2017 Nonesuch solo album, Thanks for Listening, and the traditional tune "House Carpenter," which he had recorded with his band Nickel Creek on their 2002 Grammy-winning album, This Side. You can hear the All of It session here:

    Multidisciplinary abstractivist and auteur Rob Mazurek will release a new album with Exploding Star Orchestra, Dimensional Stardust, via International Anthem / Nonesuch Records on November 20, 2020. The album track "A Wrinkle in Time Sets Concentric Circles Reeling" is available today; the video by Mikel Patrick Avery can be seen here. Mazurek arranged his pieces for eleven musicians and commissioned his long-time lyrics collaborator Damon Locks to draft original texts for the songs. The album recalls an array of Mazurek’s symphonic­ influences, from Béla Bartók to Morton Feldman to Gil Evans to Sun Ra to Pedro Santos to Bill Dixon to The Art Ensemble of Chicago. Opting to focus on tight ensemble orchestration over passages of open improvisation, he distills an orchestra of explosive improvisers into a graceful group exercise in melodic minimalism.
