No theme to this week's podcast. It starts with Sonny Rollins on the Alfie movie soundtrack. We then hear from Noah Baerman and Linda Oh. Let's get political with Noah Preminger's treatment of Dylan's Only a Pawn in Their Game, followed by the original from Bob Dylan. We mellow things down with Getz and Greene and finish the podcast with a haunting tune from Billy Childs Laura Nyro tribute and then from his latest release.
