The creatures of the night make beautiful music, and we're here to listen to it. Today, it's songs and jazz pieces having to do with the night. It's dark, it's mysterious, and it's all terrific music. Tune in.
Esperanza Spalding, endlessly protean and inventive, has composed a series of pieces about parts of the body. 12 Little Spells is the name of the work, and it's a surprising and varied exploration of the body, and of one particularly brilliant musical mind. Don't miss the jazz this week.
