    "Uncut" Names Several Nonesuch Albums Among the Decade's Greatest

    Uncut magazine celebrates its 150th issue in November with a list of the 150 Greatest Albums of the 21st Century (so far). On the list are several Nonesuch releases, including three Wilco records from the decade—2004's A Ghost Is Born at No. 3, 2002's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, and 2007's Sky Blue Sky. (Wilco's latest album, Wilco (the album), recently joined Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, from label mates The Low Anthem, on the list of nominees for the 2009 Uncut Music Award.)

    Just next to A Ghost Is Born on the list of the decade's best is Brian Wilson's SMiLE (2004), in at No. 4. Chávez Ravine, the second album in Ry Cooder's California trilogy, from 2005, comes in at No. 48. Emmylou Harris's Nonesuch debut, Red Dirt Girl, released in 2000, makes the list as well, as does Scritti Politti's Nonesuch album from 2006, White Bread, Black Beer.

    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.
