Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland
Sunday at 11am
Organist, pianist, arranger, composer, teacher, and singer Trudy Pitts (1932 – 2010) earned a reputation not only for her technical prowess, but also for her ability to convey a wide range of emotions. Her formal training was classical: she studied piano at Juilliard and Temple University, but came to jazz by way of the organ. On this 1992 Piano Jazz, Pitts’ sensitive touch is apparent when she solos on “A Child is Born.” Then she and McPartland create a memorable “Mood Indigo.”

Latino USA with Maria Hinojosa
Sunday at 3pm
Remember that time you set your bed on fire? Or when you went through photos of your ex just so you could have a good cry? This week we embrace the stereotype of the fast-talking, Spanish-speaking, over-dramatic woman, inspired by Pedro Almodóvar's "Women On the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown." Two Latino USA producers set out to discover if watching all of Almodóvar's movies back to back would make them more or less neurotic. We also hear from Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez, also known as "The Human Emoji," and from iLé, a musician who is on the verge of breaking into the mainstream.
