    Watch: Sam Amidon Talks with 'Pablo Held Investigates' Podcast
    Steve Gullick

    Sam Amidon is the guest on the latest episode of Pablo Held Investigates, the interview podcast series from the German pianist/composer, to discuss Amidon's 2020 self-titled album and much more. "Sam Amidon is one of the most open-minded artists I know," says Held. "Right away I was struck not only by his beautiful music, I was also amazed by the vast range of things he welcomes into his world. Every Sam Amidon album is a winner." You can watch their extensive conversation here:

    On his self-titled album, Amidon performs radical reworkings of mostly traditional folk songs with his frequent band, multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily and drummer Chris Vatalaro, along with saxophonist and label mate Sam Gendel, guitarist Bert Cools, bassist Ruth Goller, and Amidon’s wife, Beth Orton, who adds vocals on three songs. You can get it and hear it here.

    Sam Amidon will lead a headline tour of the Northeastern United States this October and will join fellow Nonesuch artist Joachim Cooder on tour in the UK in November. You can see all the details and get tickets here.

    Composer, singer, and instrumental polymath Ben LaMar Gay's new album, Open Arms to Open Us, is due November 19 on International Anthem / Nonesuch Records. Living up to NPR's claim that "there is no one universe for Ben LaMar Gay, he just sonic booms from one sound to another," he interweaves jazz, blues, ballads, R&B, raga, new music, nursery rhyme, Tropicália, two-step, hip-hop, and beyond in his most colorful and communicable work yet, an expression of his signature omni-genre, "Pan-Americana" brew. You can watch the video for the track "Sometimes I Forget How Summer Looks on You," featuring OHMME, here.
