Guatemalan-born singer-songwriter Gaby Moreno and American musician, songwriter, arranger, and producer Van Dyke Parks, whose album ¡Spangled! is out tomorrow, were on NPR's Alt.Latino to chat with host Felix Contreras and share some of the tracks from the album. You can hear the episode below.

"In 2013, Gaby Moreno was recognized as Best New Artist by the Latin Grammys. Since then, she's more than lived up to that recognition," says Contreras in his introduction. "But even before that, she's been an Alt.Latino favorite, and her latest album continues to give me reason to admire her ... Van Dyke Parks's arrangements on ¡Spangled! lift Gaby Moreno's voice into a place that will delight and surprise her longtime fans as well as impress those who are just discovering her ... ¡Spangled! is a stunning collection of music ... It's a fabulously gorgeous album."

¡Spangled! is available for pre-order now at  iTunes and the Nonesuch Store. The album will also stream at  Spotify, Apple Music, and other digital service providers.

    Brad Mehldau’s Variations on a Melancholy Theme is out now. The recording features the pianist/composer and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, which commissioned this orchestral version of the work—a theme and eleven variations plus a cadenza and postlude. The album also includes an encore, “Variations ‘X’ and ‘Y.'" "I imagine it as if Brahms woke up one day and had the blues," Mehldau says of the piece, which combines the classical form with jazz harmonies. "While the theme evokes melancholy, I let it be used as a springboard for other happy, wild, violent, and reckless emotions as the variations progress." You can watch a video for Variation 4 here.

    Rhiannon Giddens’ new album, They're Calling Me Home, recorded with Italian multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, released earlier this year on CD and digital, is now on vinyl. Giddens and Turrisi, who both live in Ireland when they aren’t on tour, have been there since March 2020 due to the pandemic. The two expats found themselves drawn to the music of their native and adoptive countries of America, Italy, and Ireland during lockdown. Exploring the emotions brought up by the moment, Giddens and Turrisi decamped to Hellfire, a small studio on a working farm outside of Dublin, to record these songs over six days.
