"I have a photographer here. And no, you can't make pictures. So I said, well, with one photographer, you get one point of view, and with two photographers, you're going to get two points of view. So I can shoot right, and he saw, I mean, that's how I said it. You know, he saw my determination. He saw I was smart. He saw I wasn't going to be pushed around, and he went, yeah, you know, I say take a positive approach, not like, oh, could I just wait here and then maybe later we could do some pictures or blob, blah, blah, blah. I don't know where I get that from, but if you create the situation for a person to say yes, you're far more likely to have them say yes. It's just always made common sense to me. Talk about calling Miles Davis a bastard. Well, that wasn't my best moment. Would you rather not? No, no, no, no. It's a fascinating memory for me. Because it's always so clear and answer when I'm at what's the most horrible experience she had photographing the celebrity. What's the best experience? And the most horrible and the best experience are the same experience. It was Miles Davis. It's a rather long story because the shoot itself. It was like 8 hours before I ever got off of the picture. He put me through a lot of testing. And finally, I really couldn't take it any longer. We were supposedly ready to shoot. And I had our Bulgarian folk music, and he said, take off that music. That was when I said, you really are a bastard, aren't you? And I hated him. I felt that I had kind of prostituted myself by hanging around for 8 hours and letting this guy test me and not just do the work. And I was upset with myself. He said, son, his kid who's here. Son, get me my horn. And my heart was so filled with like, you, I can't wait to get out of here, get this shot. He picked up his horn, and he started playing right to my face, and I literally

For fucking like a month. You're a vending machine. Just fucking shitting money all over a fucking front line. That fucking running up that hill. That is a fucking Jesus. That's how that works. It's a fucking problem. Yeah, yeah. On this day though, okay, some might not on this one. On this day in 1991, Guns N' Roses released two albums. Use your illusion one and use your illusion too, which debuted at number one and number two on the UK album shot. Both albums make number one and number two in the U.S. and a lot of people say that could have just been one album. You agree. Yeah, I was probably done with them by then. I think that is November rain on that. One, I think. It's not one of those, I think. I don't like that. Yeah. On this day, also in 1991, this motherfucker. Goth Brooks went to number one on the U.S. album shot with rope in the wind. The album spent a total of 18 weeks at the number one position in 70 weeks on the chart selling over 11 million copies in that motherfucker is the reason we have this shit country music today. What a weird phenomenon. I mean, it was. I mean, they're trying to do that fucking rockstar that gains. What the fuck? Paranoid we're talking about that you pair is like, I think he's lost his mind. He's gone totally crazy. He thought he could do it. He had this wig thing on. In this brooding, he's a brooding rock. That's right. But then he go away after that. Yeah, yeah, he went away. Went away with Billy Ray Cyrus too. There you go. You know, that's the guy knows a lot of people that like James Taylor, stuff in the early 70s. It was kind of like the country more of the country stuff. They gravitated gravitated to a lot of these countries though. Yeah. Then you were like, it was just, it was kind of country, but it was rock, but it's just like you said, it's a top song. Lyrics. And the same themes are similar to going over there. Yeah. It was a sad day on this day in 1991. Also, it was a busy day. American jazz trumpet a band leader and composer Miles Davis, died of a stroke in the pneumonia. His 1959 album kind of blue is a major influence on jazz music, Davis is considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century by a no doubt. No doubt. And I did a thing on his ex-wife Betty Davis, who just passed away some months back. She was if you've never listened to it, she was raw funk, raw funk, and she was another strong woman who got control of her in the studio, got to produce her stuff. And she had married Miles Davis, but she had already started or she looked her up on YouTube. She was easy to look at too.

"Though, some cultural pieces we have to note, stay classic, right? Like a button down shirt. Or The Beatles. How does something get to stay classic? And transcend that trend cycle. Almost everything goes back to some sort of object in which the status associations of the past somehow are so strong that they overpower, whoever wears, or participates in that thing now. And so an Oxford button down, a green extra button down and you think Miles Davis on the cover of an album, you don't think about some schlub. You saw the shopping mall in the same shirt. So for whatever reason, these things because those associations with the past are so strong, they literally can exist forever as cool because of overwhelming nostalgia. Overlay nostalgia for very specifically high status people. I mean, there's lots of things from the past that we have not revived. I'll give you a very clear example. Anything from the 70s. Double knit polyester leisure suits were massively popular. We were thinking American tradition. Exactly. So these leisure suits were a huge part of American culture. In the 1970s, but they're associated with lower middle class people. And so rugby shirts are a timeless item, football jerseys aren't. You know, so these things aren't accidental. They do really map to power and hierarchy and things like that. And so when people decide to say, okay, let's destroy traditions because traditions have these embedded power structures in them. They are not wrong. Traditions are something we have to consider all the time because there's a lot of biases that are embedded within them. And status is different than class. Yeah, so let me define what I mean by status because it is also a term that is quite ambiguous, but also it's a bit of a taboo. We just don't talk about status very often. And I think that comes from a real eagle, and spirit that we have. I mean, we want society to be all men are created equal that people are equal people don't want to talk about. Do I have more status than somebody else? And so status is your position within a social hierarchy. And why it matters. As your status goes up, you are treated better. You get all these social benefits. As your status goes down, you lose those benefits. And most people have normal status, which means you walk down the street, people are courteous, but if you have high status, you know, suddenly you get all this extra stuff. If you walked into a restaurant and you had normal status, people say great. How many are dining tonight? And they see you at the table. If you have low status, maybe they stall you and sitting there. Maybe they treat you with contempt. If you have high status on the other hand, they may go out of their way to give you the best table. If you have super high status, if your celebrity, they may take your photo, put it on the wall, the chef comes out and says hello. Then certainly, people with money in a capitalist society are tend to be at the top of the status hierarchy. But do cultural trends only come from people of high status because there's a lot of cultural trends that emerge from the bottom up, right? Like a lot of fashion or slang or music starts from marginalized communities, black and queer culture, for instance. Absolutely. And I don't think the trickle down is gone. It's just that the form has changed is that people, especially

But for now, it was just a way to collect some nearly routing dairy. My job was dairy sniff. So take a container of milk, open it up. If it smells good, I put it in remove crate over here. If it smells sour, I threw in the trash can. Back then, the jazz scene was somewhat notorious for heroin use. And when some of them were trying to kick, they'd end up at when a synanon's house is. Or would at least pass through. Miles Davis would send his group down. Whenever they came to town, whenever Miles Davis came to San Francisco, he would send his band to yeah, but he didn't come because he was using he had respect. But he was sending the rest of the band to come down and play for us in the afternoon. So it was only natural that this rehab grew a jazz band of its own. Okay.

It's also now up for your Emmy consideration and IGN calls it the best animated series of the year that quote breaks new ground for what's possible in TV animation. You want to do top 5s, anything else you want to say about Sandler? I would like to make one argument in defense of the ridiculous 6, which I believe to be the first Netflix movie. If I remember this, I think it was 2015, it was the first Netflix movie. It is overall very bad. It is probably, I don't think you can even say it aged poorly. I think it arrived poorly. It's like the Super Bowl of racial stereotypes. Like I seem to recall, there was like, there was a huge controversy. There was a revolt of extras about the way it was portraying Native Americans in general. This is a bad movie that's probably worth skipping, except for the fact that for the first half of the movie, they're like running around in the old west, like whatever's happened. We got to get to sweet hog rock. All we gotta do is get to sweet hog rock. We'll meet up at sweet hogwart and they get this sweet hog rock and it's just shaped like a giant penis. And somebody says, wow, that's a sweetheart. It's the funniest shit. That is the second my second favorite line after peeing your pants at school. That's Miles Davis. Just watch the ridiculous 6 for that one line and then bail. That is my advice. You just spoiled the joke. I'm sorry. I did. I did. I did this this movie is like 8 years old and nobody should watch it. That's the thing is even in the most dire of Sandler projects. You usually get a sweet hog here and there. Yes, exactly. The sweet hog rock line always appears somewhere. Even in sandy Wexler or whatever. Okay, here's your time to talk about Sandler, the singer, some more. What's your number 5 movie? Number 5, I'm going the wedding singer. I think we need a representation for the RomCom Sandler. I think that Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are one of the better matched energy RomCom couples in history. Like just the lovable goofiness, I just, they just work perfectly together. As I say, I love him, he's perfectly cast as a wedding singer. He's at the exact right level of aptitude and prestige just.

"An Oscar. That was me, actually. That was unfortunate, rob that you did that. But you know, I would say that Sandler handled it well 'cause he's got 30 plus years of experience of Bros running up on him saying you're the best bro but he did not seem very interested in that line of conversation. And he was just like, that's very nice, but that's not really why I do it. You know what I mean? And even in the promotion of that movie, I didn't feel like he was working the awards circuit hard. He was doing the stuff. You know, he would do the actor on actor conversations, but he's actually quite I don't want to say withdrawn, but he doesn't seek a claim in the same way or publicity. No. I've heard historically, he doesn't love the press, which is one of the reasons why he often does interviews with safe partners. But, you know, he has a lot to protect, obviously. And I think he got a lot of bad reviews at the beginning of his career. And it's a real testimony to something that I've talked about many, many times, which is that most comedies, and over the last 60 years are made for people who are under 25 years old, and most people who review comedies in America are over 25 years old. And we have this historical bizarre critical disconnect between the criticism about comedy and the actual relationship that the audience has to it. Sandler might be the Pinnacle example of this. And that'll come to the four when we talk about this. And I've thought about this myself, you know, I think I've hopefully forged a little bit of a reputation for myself as a stuck up pretentious movie asshole. Thanks, rob. But if I saw Billy Madison today, how would I feel about it? For the first time. What you would feel is that if peeing your pants is cool, then I'm Miles Davis is the funniest line in a movie in either of our lifetimes. I think when you were talking about the grandmas of the Sandler over, I was thinking of that woman in Billy Madison that elderly laid it out to that woman. Yes. This.

And the finger wagon for no apparent reason. Oh, and he plays himself in it, too. Yeah, he did that a lot. Yeah, he did that a whole lot. Okay, then let's check her out. Oh, you're gonna love it. You're gonna be real happy I brought this in. Which, um, we co wrote it. We're crazy about it. But we liked it. And then we found out. And we had to keep rewriting it for different reasons. So it wasn't even the first draft of something that we weren't crazy about. But we liked it. And then we found out we only had an hour and a half to shoot it. And I thought, this won't even make the show. And then the way to get another extra half hour, I'm getting the most compliments for that scene. And it's because we sort of, again, it was sort of justified the feelings that I felt when I got my first comedy crush, David, that we just can read each other's minds. I know when he's going to pause, I know when he's not pausing, so I can talk. And the others are good too. Yeah. Yeah, mine is more the opposite. Like when I met Mark, who is my brother in the troop and they're all in my brothers. But it was like, it was a loose moose theater and I think I said, like, how fucking long are you gonna be rehearsing that piano? 'cause he had his scene, his so much say it is screaming. And then we just, we couldn't not be together because we loved each other's ideas so much. And so when he told me a couple ideas, like, oh God, I'm in with this guy. I gotta be. Yeah, it was a weird combination of things. I actually was thinking this the other day. We had a writers meeting and Frank and Gary and norm and Bruce and I were all meeting. And in the middle of the writers meeting, Frank and Gary and norm snuck off to see a movie. And Bruce and I were kind of like the work pigs. And I was furious. I've never been angry at those guys in my life. And then we wrote a scheme. We stuck around, we wrote a scene. That felt bonding. I don't know if it was any good. Do you have more recent ones? I have a recent one. It was the very first day of shooting and Mark and I were doing hotel lorette and Dave. And Mark was always in drag and I came out onto the set in my character. And I saw Mark and as his character, and I was in my character, and we started spritzing the characters, and I fell in love with them again, because I spent, oh my God, this is beautiful. We're here. We're together. It's working. And it just felt like it's gonna work. I remember it being graded, but I was actually thinking the same thing. We came out and met each other as two people worrying about our wigs. Yes. In a strange studio that we'd never worked in before, with a crew whose faces we would never saw their faces. And then as we shot the couch scene, it just went click, click, click, click, click, and by the end we were doing kids in the hall. It's weird. It is weird because I couldn't really remember the voice. I couldn't really remember how they behaved with each other and then instantly and on that love. And on that loving note, thank you so much for.

"So what, from kind of blue 1959 again? Not sounds. People are used to hearing at that time and flash forward a decade, one more time when Miles Davis plugs in show he's shows he's being influenced by rock and roll and goes electric. This is the beginning of right off from his album released in 1971 called a tribute to Jack Johnson. Mm hmm. A little more. Obviously Rocky, with John McLaughlin guitar than the track we heard earlier from the album Bitches Brew. So Marcus Miller. Would it be fair to start with the idea that Miles Davis was a creatively restless composer? Never content as many artists are in many genres to cup. Just keep doing the same kind of music their whole lives. Yeah, I think that would be that would be fair to say, you know, he, uh He first came to New York from East ST Louis in the mid forties because he had heard Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker. They had come to East ST Louis and they were playing what was a revolutionary music at that time. Called bebop. It was revolutionary in comparison to the swing bands, which were the popular, uh, groups at the time. So he heard that music. It blew his mind. He said. I got I got to be part of this new thing. What? Maybe Bob. New was that it was, um fast temples, sophisticated harmonies and very difficult to play. So he came to New York is basically a protege. Of, um Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. And then, like you said a few years later, basically the beginning of the fifties. Changed it, You know be Bob was hot. It was fast. It was challenging. In the fifties. All of a sudden. You know it wasn't exciting to him anymore. And he wanted to find a new hip thing. Sixties again, Uh, as you pointed out, He got bored again. He was always just looking for the new challenging, uh, Element to put in his music, and so Um Those three uh Changes were pretty revolutionary in the jazz world, but nothing compared What he did in 69 when he started using electric instruments. Yes, And I think of Miles Davis plugging in in the late sixties, a little like Bob Dylan plugging in In the mid sixties, the folk music world was scandalized and thought Dylan was selling out to commercial trendiness. Was there that same kind of blowback in the Jazz world? About miles going electric. Well. If you take The Ah, they'll blow back from People who were used to what Bob Dylan had been doing before and multiply that by about 10. That's what the effect of miles plugging in because Bob Dylan Let's see. Maybe Average six years of history before he plugged in. Ah, with Miles Davis, you were talking by 1971 You talk about 25 years of playing jazz in a more traditional fashion. With traditional instrumentation. So it was it was seismic. Marcus much of this series on this show about 1971 as a pivotal year in music. Includes the political or social context of the Times. Carole King's tapestry we talked about last week had some relevance to the rise of early seventies feminism and the increasing divorce rate at the time. What's going on represented my Vin gay evolving into someone with the civil rights consciousness. More than before in his music, Can you say Miles going Electric was about anything going on in the world other than his relationship with sound itself. Well, you know. 71 for me probably was I look at it as the dust settling from the explosion, the cultural explosion of the sixties so By the time you get to 71 You're almost expected. To reflect the times to reflect the cultural change in your music. Even artists who weren't consciously doing it. We're doing it because the cultural revolution was such a part of everyone's everyday life by 1971 so Miles. Who, as we spoke about, he was already restless. He had been playing a really sophisticated form of jazz by 1967. And he started looking in the audience. And seeing a different Type of audience member. You know they were. There were no black people in the audience anymore. There were they were all no one was tapping their foot anymore because the music was A little too abstract for you to grab onto the rhythm. And he had a girlfriend named Betty. Betty Mabry, and they got married Betty Davis, who was completely immersed in the new culture. She was hanging out with rock and roll as she was making. Records of her own that were very contemporary. She was wearing the knee high. The knee high platform boots and she had a huge Afro. So you know, it was a mix of Miles is social consciousness because he was very socially conscious and him just not want to become a relic. Wanted to make sure his music, uh, still have relevant so I think it was a combination happened Miles interest in Jack Johnson since he made that tribute album that we excerpted from Jack Johnson, the boxer from the Jim Crow era who became the first black heavyweight champion and was the target of so much. Racism for it was miles, particularly into his story ever talked to you about that. Yeah, Miles was a huge boxing fan. And of course he was. You know, miles throughout his career was always fighting against racism. You know, he played. You know, In his early years he played in south and have to Enter the clubs in the back of the restaurant in the back of the club. He had to eat it separate restaurants, the whole the whole thing. So Jack Johnson was very much a hero to him. So when they approached him about providing music for that documentary He was all in So here are a couple of things that that miles revolution miles plugging in spawn, because 1971 was also the first year, the first albums by some of the people who were playing with miles and that revolutionary period. We then went on to start their own band. One was the piano player, Josephine, or who started an electric jazz band called Weather Report that released its first album in 71. This is just the first few seconds of a track. Called umbrellas. Listen, folks to the electric bass and electric piano, plus more traditional soprano sex..

Remembering Chick Corea, Jazz Pianist Who Expanded the Possibilities of the Genre
"Wanna take a moment to reflect on the life of a legendary figure in jazz. Chick corea was keyboardist composer bandleader whose work touched on many genres from classical latin jazz. He died earlier this week. From a rare form of cancer. He was seventy nine bassist christian. Mcbride collaborated with korea for more than two decades. He's also the host of npr's jazz night in america. He joins us now and christian. Welcome i know so. Many people in the music world are so sad today. How are you doing I feel like the rest of them. You know we're we're all sat together. Still in shock still pretty numb from this news because most of us had no idea that he was ill to korea was so well known for collaborating with other artists. You included one of his. Early works was on miles davis's jazz fusion album bitches. Listlessness that kristen. Can you talk about chick. Corea the collaborator. what was he lack. Chick corea the collaborator. One thing about chickens at He was the musician's musician in that. He was always open to ideas suggestions. He was one of the most celebrated and prolific composers and any style of music so a lot of his music was already thoroughly constructive. But the times. I worked with him. He was always open to making a part more specific to a particular player. And you know he was now his own music playing with other people in their groups. Eagles is always the ultimate side. Man look the musician's musician so for you personally. What did it feel like when you were up there playing with them. It felt from me the way it felt for the listener watching chick play in. Because even though i had a chance to work with them very closely for so long i never stopped being fan so i never took him for granted. You know. I got to play with chick quite a bit. But every single gig i would look over and be like man. That's that's chick corea. So i never stopped being a fan. Well as. I'm sure you know every thanksgiving. Npr's all things considered talks with musicians about artists that they're thankful for and in twenty nineteen. The rapper look haley. Forty seven thanked chick korea. And then here. He is now responding to her. It's deeply satisfying really. And it's a testament to all of us as artists able to connect like that able to connect on on a wavelength of creativity. I'm sure it's nice to hear his voice there for you but why do you think is music did resonate with so many different people with different artist. Because he had no agenda he he wrote music strictly from the joy of creating and i actually find that to be somewhat. I don't wanna see rare but it's unusual when you meet someone who writes music simply because they love writing in playing and performing and touching people that that was his objective you know. He's i want people to feel this music. He really wanted his music to be enjoyed by everyone. Bassist christian mcbride hosted. Npr's jazz night in america remembering the legendary chick corea. Who died this week at seventy nine christian. Thank you for your time. And i'm sorry that you've lost your front. Thank you

"Only the legend. Actress Sicily Tyson During a career spanning six decades, she's brought to life iconic roles in theater, film and television, from sounder to the autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, two routes to how to get away with murder roles that have offered previously unseen images of the sweep and humanity of black life. Now. In a new memoir, she finally finally sets forth her improbable journey from the typing pool at the Red Cross to award winning actor and icon of style. Her book is called Just as I Am and Sicily. Tyson is here with us to tell us more about Cicely Tyson. Miss Tyson. Welcome. It's such an honor to have you with us. Thank you. No. Honestly, if someone were to write the story of your life as a novel, I don't think people would believe it. I mean, you started modeling at the age of 30 when most models air hanging up their stilettos. You got your first starring role when you were nearly 50. I mean crazy. That's life. At least mine. Does it seem that way to you? Well, it's remarkable to me that I have arrived. Where I am today, because I had that anticipated it. I made the decision based on things that happened to be along the way. And I just kept going, You know, no matter what happened in my life it did not did not deter berate from reaching the goal that I had set for myself. You write very movingly of your parents, even though you are very honest about the difficulties they had in their relationship, and also frankly, some of the difficulties You had with them. Your memory seems so sharp like I remember you writing about the delicious potatoes your mother would make and yes, at lunch and it just it just amazing to me that you could remember. It's always details. It is amazing, but they was they so impacted my life at the time. Uh, they they affected me in a way that I could not forget those memories and my sister and I sit down sometimes and salivate over them the potatoes and you said her Mac and she's had no equal No one No one and she made a chicken soup that will make you Licked a hair out of your nostrils. Hmm. So So you write about how you kind of fell into acting after a modeling career that just improbable, moderate wing career like you learned literally. Um, a zoo. We said in the typing pool of the Red Cross, and you'd kind of go to the department stores on the kind of the late, Great Lord, Take your lunch hour. That wasn't my favorite place, sadly, just closing its doors. When did you decide that acting? Was your calling? What was the thing that made you say? This is what I have to do. It happened. We could. I learned that I could speak. Through other people. I was very shy child. I was an observer. I would sit And observe and listen and watch people's actions in order to understand what they were. Well, I wanted to know what planted them just say and do things that they did. I sucked my figures for 12 years. I never spoke. Was a silencer, but I was a great observer. Remember, you're writing about the effect. That's a role like sounder had on people where you played Rebecca and I think many people might know the story. Poor Paul Winfield played against you as the Nathan and you played Rebecca and it's It's a story of kind of a loving black couple. Basically, just trying to live against that almost exactly right. Yes, And what amazing was you said that some of the reactions that people got when, like, for example, television writers, saying that they didn't realize that black Children called there Parents, Dad and, Mom, can you imagine that? Understand motion for sounder and after I finished after the film was completed, this journalist said. That he discovered a bit of bigotry and himself. But he realized that this black boy, which should buy first son, Kevin Hooks called his father Daddy. On and when I asked why, he said, That's what my son calls May and I'm not. I tell you, Uh, I was so started to be a few minutes to catch my breath in order. To question What is this man thought? That we were human. You know why Pat my son call his black father Daddy as his sons. Called him and it was at that time that I decided I could not afford the luxury of just big fractures. There were certain issues I have to adjust. And I thought I would use like a rare as why flat floor and you know we can't let you go without talking about Miles Davis. Oh, Yeah, well, you can't because she was part of my life. What do you think you learned from that? I mean, you write about the fact that you all were like the it couple at the time. I mean, you were one of the couples in me. He's a jazz legend. You are a legend in your field. On yet, you know, he had some issues as we as we all know, I mean, he had a serious drug problem and Some other sort of issues. Demons that he was dealing with. What do you think you learned from that relationship? I wish people knew the Miles Davis that I knew. Really because to you can walk into a bookstore and you sing dreams of books about Miles Davis and few people who wrote the books. Yeah. Not only was she feeling they talented, he was brilliantly sensitive, and that is the Miles Davis that people know. I don't know that he was trying to Okay? You have a very forgiving spirit. Well, Isn't that what we're supposed to do? Forgive each other, huh? We don't keep riding a rough truck over a sensitive so you can't do that. People are looking for help. And you look and you see them And you know that they need help. Okay, and you can help them. At least I can. I can always speak myself. Okay on. So what? I realized that he was in deep trouble on that he wanted he wants. He said I don't want to do that anymore. Okay. Uh, So when somebody says that to you And they're asking for help at this. I would try to help them. Before we let you go, Miss Tyson. We have only just scratched the surface of your remarkable life. And I am so honored to have had this time to spend with you. But before I let you go, do you have some advice for younger artists are those just Beginning their careers after you've done so much and seeing so much and been through so much Do you have any advice that you would share Death? Stick with it? Just stick for that. There's a reason why there's always a reason why you keep going in the direction you chose to go. And that is the legend.

I demonstrated this last spring while on my fourth date with Brazilian woman so beautiful. I was almost afraid of her her after dinner in a home Italian restaurant we walked back to the apartment had just moved into in Brooklyn living in the city for the first time without roommates I was eager to take advantage of my newfound.

Old bookish type from Pittsburgh each outing felt as if if I were sneaking into an exclusive club at the end of the night I always feared I'd be discovered and asked to leave. I realized that meeting someone. Wonderful is the whole point of dating but actually being with someone wonderful can be too stressful for me to enjoy. This stress is typical for me. I've been on anti anxiety medication for about ten years and on daytime consistently ask myself. Was that the wrong thing to say. Do I seem nervous. Will obsessing about being nervous make me appear more nervous not unusual question to ask yourself when meeting new the people but for me they can be paralyzing. Even the evening goes well. I often appreciated only later in from distance as if it had happened to someone else like dating into third person so far my success with this particular woman had been an exercise ignoring the reality of it which apparently also led me ignore the reality of my surroundings in general ask unraveled herself from our embrace on the couch to use the bathroom.

It was released in nineteen fifty six to coincide with her autobiography of the same name by this point in her career when she was just in her early forties. Holiday's voice was sounding fragile and warn the toll of a life marked by hardship and addiction. Although the more energetic sound of her earlier records is muted here, holiday still delivers wise and moving performances in this collection of emotional, jazz tunes, many of the songs here became synonymous with her unique sound and persona. Here's colleen. Billie holiday remains one of the greatest jazz, voices of all time and is still easily recognizable to music fans from all generations. She's got them. The musicians and clubs of New York City were integral to the development of jazz in the nineteen forties. Bebop was born in the Big Apple with artists like Charlie Parker bologna, smoke and Dizzy, Gillespie. The nineteen fifties saw the development of hard bop with Sonny Rollins and our Blakey the cool jazz of miles Davis and later, the free jazz of Ornette Coleman, and later John Coltrane explored in downtown, Manhattan venues, like the five spot. But vocal innovator and world-famous Billie holiday with unable to perform these notable. Jaaz clubs in the nineteen fifties as her cabaret card had been revoked due to narcotics charges. So instead, she brought jazz to the mainstream by performing it a major concert venue Carnegie Hall in nineteen fifty six. Nothing. On nothing. She wants said of her style. If I'm going to sing like someone else, then I don't need to sing at all in nineteen fifty eight Frank Sinatra told ebony magazine with few exceptions, every major pop singer in the US during her generation has been touched in some way by her genius. It is Billie holiday who was and still remains the greatest single musical influence on me.

Stephen Brunt on Tiger Woods: What kind of heroes do we want?
"Hey, it's Jordan, and I've podcast for you. Commons is Canada's most popular podcast about politics last season. They tried to answer the question how corrupt is Canada this time around. They're investigating our national addiction oil the currency's featuring host Arshi man is called crude. And it's about Canada's relationship with the oil industry. The good the bad the ugly and the weird you'll find Commons wherever you get your podcasts. So go check it out. I'm going to try to tell you today's story the way all probably tell it to grandkids someday. There was this guy a golfer named tiger. He was the best golfer in the world probably ever, you could argue if you wanted to, but nobody who'd watched him play would listen to you. And if that was our story, it would be a boring one, but it's not anyway, tiger was the greatest he had it all the fame money commercials endorsements beautiful wife and adorable children. But he was also a jerk. There were a lot of stories about this. He was rude to fans who wouldn't give kids high fives or sign autographs. He had his caddy yell at people who was a notoriously bad Tipper. He was a sullen guide to play with. He was robotic with the media, and none of those things mattered because he was the greatest until he wasn't just after two on Friday morning. Thirty three year old Tiger Woods. Drove out of his house alone. His car I hit a fire hydrant then a tree police after that crash. His wife left him. It turned out he'd been cheating on her with dozens of women across the country. His sponsors dropped him. Almost as fast as she. Did Ben details of his affairs came out, and they were humiliating. I want to say to each of you simply and directly. I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible and selfish behavior. I engaged in his knee gave out and then his back and even when he felt good enough to play golf. He was bad at it. And then despite surgeries his backup worse and worse until he could barely sit down without pain. He needed a spinal fusion surgery he had it just so he would be able to play with his children in his old age. He said but afterwards he felt better. So about two years ago, he picked up a club and tried to play again, and he could and he started getting better at it on the rest. Well, we'll tell you the rest, but you probably know how this ends. Then he doubted we'd ever see it. But here it is. Turn to glory. So it's Tiger Woods. Now. Redeemed? What is it about him that compels so many of us to root for him despite his flaws? What does the way we cheer for tiger tell us, but the kind of stories that were drawn to and about the kind of heroes. We prefer. I'm jordan. He's rawlings. And this is the big story. Stephen Brent from sports net is one of our favorite guests to talk to you. Whenever sports gets bigger than the games on the field. Why did everybody I know even with people on my production team who don't care about sports watch golf on Sunday? Well, let's see because the greatest golfer of all time came back under what seemed like impossible circumstances in rows right to the top of the sport in a after being written off for really good reasons over the last several years, especially over the last five or six years because he because Tiger Woods is a ground-breaking figure culturally. The people who don't know the wouldn't know Jordan Spieth of walked up their driveway know, who he is the he's he's an icon and a groundbreaker. So we has significance beyond the game. He plays. And because we all love a good redemption story, whether it's true or not we all want to believe that if you turn your life around if you do the right things instead of the wrong things if you follow the rules. You will be rewarded somehow in the cosmic sense. And for a lot of people. I think that's what it felt like I I'm not sure if the greatest I'm trying to think is this. Latest comeback story in sports history. That's a big one. Right. And I have a personal bias on that. Because I saw George Foreman. When the heavyweight championship at age forty six having been away for eleven years, and then come back as a big fat guy had people laugh Ataman lose nine rounds of a fight Nakagawa the tenth. So that was pretty good. But this that probably just me, but otherwise yet may potentially the greatest comeback story in the history of sport, a nostalgia moment for some people. I yeah, I get creeped out thinking of nineties style. Just somebody my age at doesn't nineties is like yesterday. But there's it's an established a moment, you know, this kind of the big three right there. Right. So within the sport historical greatest of all time, and the redemption narrative, and the and the style jet for a certain generation who remember remember when way way back in those nineteen nineties tell me about that. Because that was something that everybody was talking about right after he won is that moment twenty something years ago. Now when the world saw Tiger Woods for the first time. Do you? Remember the first time you saw Tiger Woods. That's good. I know not specifically. I certainly remember the first master's I remember talking about him in the US amateur. I remember him being out. You know, what I know? I take that back. You know, when I saw him the first time, I was at home as a teenager, a young teenager. Maybe not even a teenager yet. And after school. My parents watched the Mike Douglas show, which was a talk show that was on every day like five o'clock in the afternoon, and that's the famous show where they were L. Whereas whereas all man brought him out as a six year old and he had calls. I saw that show. Do you remember when Tiger Woods became I guess the Tiger Woods that we talk about? When we talk about the beginning of this story. When is lapping the field at the masters. I'm one of those moments when he just did something that when he seemed on another planet when he seemed different from all of the rest when he separated himself and that puts him on a very short list with Jordan and alley and what was it like watching him in the late nineties and early two thousands. Well, the guy so I'm not a golf guy. I have to. So is this I read like, I quit playing golf is fourteen. I walked off the course on the second hole. I hated hated the people here that the clothing, I did everything. So I just laughed. I literally just walked off in the middle of the game. And that's why we're talking you. Because this story is golf, so I hate golf and everything about it. But no, he was he was like a he was a superman, right? He was this. And and again, the nontraditional nature in terms of golf the whitest of sports. Yeah. Those days more so than now. But the idea that you could be, you know, someone other than a rich white kid, and and take on the sports or the way they're with Williams sisters and tennis the same that you could you could kind of just going to throw this back through all of that back in people's faces planned courses that were segregated up. You know within my lifetime. Yeah. There were courses that I remember remember the commercial? I think that Nike did about that. He was the first black person to ever play on some of these courses that he'd been playing. Yeah. I do remember that. And that was you know, again, that's a very so you felt like this was righteous to that that he was kicking down those doors and breaking those barriers and thumbing. Knows that the racist and the racist traditions and golf news, you know, total package now that that said the other side of them was completely unknowable. You know, we saw him. He was again public use a public figure, and he's a six year old to a degree. And he was kind of a brand Ike on it was like, Jordan. He was universal. Right. You could you could show that picture in any continent on earth and people say, oh, that's him. But he was impenetrable. He still is I have no idea who that guy is I really don't you know, has left people try to figure it out. And a lot of very fine writers have taken a crack at it. But I have no idea who what's inside them. Do you think we know him better now than we did ten twelve years ago? I think we would like to think we do again, I think under pretending that we know these people is important to us because it gives meaning to something that's otherwise meaningless which guy just put myself out of out of a job here. But you know, it doesn't really matter this stuff. Right. It doesn't. It's funny. You're like putting a little white ball and a hauler Gorna touchdown or scoring a winning goal and overtime and hockey game. Then add up a whole lot. You know, it doesn't even add up to what your doesn't add up art adds up to you know, with art. You can say the the art is the is what's important. So we will forgive people when number one you don't need to know the personality of the person producing yard you. Appreciate the art as a separate thing from them. And number two, you forgive them their sins. Right. Doesn't matter miles Davis horrible person. Right. Like one of the worst people ever, but produced sublime transcendent, revolutionary, art. And that's enough. You don't have to care about him. But but fleet was that's the thing. It's different. Because this no one's I. Yeah. I know it's you can argue make the argument that it's art, but you know, games come and goes Gore's, come and go somebody wins somebody loses. Like I've been doing. I've been writing about this stuff for a long time. It it. It doesn't add up to a la- beans, but if we can give it meaning, you know, if you can kind of imbue it with meeting and say, there's a human lesson here. And there's a human involved in this. Then I think it kinda justifies it. So I think that's part of we want to turn this into a parable. We wanna turn sports into a parable. That's how we understand the world is, you know, through parable as someone who. Who tries to do that and turn sports into those lessons for us. What did you think when I guess when Tigers false started when the news broke of the car crash and the details of that came out any stepped away? I you know, I felt like Klay like the rest of us. You know, it was it was interesting because it was kind of a flash of humanity in there he'd been so packaged and so protected in so manufactured, and, you know, both as a player, you know, by his father, and then certainly by Nike and everybody else who were in the image business image management business to to to be around tiger. I was a couple of times golf tournaments. And you know, there's no, you know, sense of what was behind this thing. And so, you know, I think that there is well, it's what the gossip industries built on right that they're kind of the Makarius thrill of oh, they're like us, aren't they? They're just like us. As a real under the Nike. Yeah. But especially on a flawed Cuban, right? So yeah, he may be rich, and he may be handsome, and he may be may have this beautiful wife. And but really he's like, you know, the the bad guy down the block, you not like you because you would never know that he was like the bad guy down the block. He has flaws. He's he's he's human in a so, but I I think there's a little bit of glee that goes without sometimes kinda, you know, the the whole shot and Freud thing, right? That you're you're you. I think a lot of people kind of were excited about it. You know, in some ways and said there, you go, you know, you may have thought you were something else. But here's what you really are. But I think it would it mostly revealed was a guy who I again, I'm not going to I wouldn't try and put a framework aunt and say, he was you know, all about golf and then never developed the other dimensions of his humanity. I have no idea. Like, I I don't know who the guy is. I don't pretend. But I think the impulse there is to say, yeah, he's he's a he's he's a flawed human being like the rest of us. And again weirdly to take some satisfaction from it. Well, there is that narrative that we probably like to put on. Sports stars because they're bigger and faster and better and richer than us that they are missing out on an essential part of humanity because they had to focus on this game since they were three years old. And they missed the whole rich tapestry of life that we got. Yes. No. And that's a great point. Right. That is a great point that, you know, the those character lessons you learned by being a really crappy little league player, right? For instance, or how to sit on a bench or being dumped by various girlfriends or ignored by others or just understanding failure that these guys were believed they were impervious to it. But in fact, you know, everybody gets their come up at some point. But again, that's that's kind of a religious theme. Isn't it? It really is. Yeah. Well, it's the it's the new idea of the human experience. Right. And that we all kind of go through the worst valleys in our lives. And it's what comes after that makes it worthwhile. Theoretically, you're radically. Yeah. Theoretically, or you know, it could be just all pointless, which would be another another more bleak way to look at it. We'll how unlikely was the next peak after that Val. Because it wasn't just the personal life scandal. It was like I mean you cover lots of athletes who try to come back from Steph. If I asked you five years ago, Steven what's the chance that I see? Tiger Woods win another green jacket snow slim two years ago. Right. Look, it's not about and it's not about the personal life stuff in this sense. Because look he was quite capable of winning golf tournaments while his personal life was apparently you're Radyr chaotic he managed to keep those things separate as when it was the physical stuff. It's one is back when you know, this guy who could barely bender bent over to pick something up off the floor two years ago the back. You can't swing a golf club with with that. You know, I think physically that idea that no matter how hard he worked his body at broken. And that's you know, way that it was not it did not appear to be able. So he could try as hard as he wanted to and he can live as clean life as you want to do and all of those things, but it didn't matter because this machine was broken. So I I don't think anybody hearing those stories from twenty sixteen twenty seventeen about his back kind of whispers because. It wasn't very public thought. You know this. No, there's no chance right? He can't go out there and compete. We can week out. And then he kind of comes back, I guess about a little over a year ago now and starts playing golf and laying. All right. And even then I don't know about you. But it was like watching an older athlete play out his years with some semblance of what he used to be. But not the same person, certainly the British the British Open right in the open championship. Right. Where you come thought. You know, he's he's not that far off and it's not like, but it's a different year. Right. It's a different vibe was a different vibe in at the masters because you know, the the old vibe is the, you know, I'm going to I'm going to destroy you. I'm going to destroy the golf course, which is what really I'm going to destroy the rest of you in this tournament. And that kind of Uber confidence that he had. I thought the most interesting thing watching that last round was watching him play the eighteenth hole, so carefully so super carefully. Right. Because you know, again, I would have been it would have been just insane you up there and hit a driver at that point, you know, because God knows and and but just. Kind of watching him play a really safe bogey to win that tournament. That's that's not in some ways. That's the anti-tiger. Right. It's just but it was it was smart. It was the right thing to do. And really the way he won that the way you try in that last round was by being kind of dog it and watching and consistent and then watching other people fail around him. It wasn't like he just sees them by the throat they had to fail. So that's a little different. If we're going to do the metaphor thing. Again, he humbled himself in front of the eighteenth hole. And is that can we read into that anything about his new life? I mean, a lot of people talked even before this tournament about how he just wanted to win for his children. Right. And he wanted his kids to see daddy win. And that's not the old tiger. Yeah. And who knows who knows who knows this guy enough to actually say that. I have no idea. I think he probably likes being tiger. Yeah. And I thought the and the chance to be tiger one more time at forty-three. That'd be pretty cool. Right. That'd that'd be an yes, it'd be great to have it. Do it in front of your children? Who'd never really got to experience it in to shut up the nose of everybody who ever said anything about you, there'd be a lot of things that you would take satisfaction from. But again, this is a guy who has programmed to be that that thing that character that kind of golf playing robot from the time he was a toddler, and you know to have that. It's right Thompsons got a new book about kind of greatest the kind of the the nature of some of the greatest of all time athletes him Jordan criminal for the other two are, but is his take on tiger is among his takes on tiger. Now, he's a great writer of golf and a Greg. I was around the sport is you know, that he thinks tiger hated the sport that whole first phase that he he was incredibly good at it and hated every minute of it because it had been forced and imposed upon him. So again, if I'm going to play amateur shrink here, I could talk about them being liberated in this second half and doing it for himself and for his own reasons rather than someone else's reasons and not having the daddy figure hovering over in them and being the daddy himself. And but like now, I'm a sports I'm being a sports writer here. Just extrapol-. I saw that column come into view. I just don't know if it's true, right? I honestly don't I have no idea. I I've no idea we know what lies in his soul. But I don't have any idea. What lies in most people souls? Right. It's we, but we go seeking it. We go seeking that story. Yeah. We're trying to find the meaning we're trying to find the meaning. Yeah. It's and you know, and then tomorrow, we'll try and find the meaning and something else. But this one looked the one thing as a sports writer sports writers people. I was asked to do cheer. We cheer for stories. Yeah. I've been lots of press boxes. Lots of press rooms everybody. Cheers for the story. Everybody got what they were cheering for and you'll end fan through the really that's what fans want you wanna. Yeah. You support your team and you support the uniform. But man, there's nothing like a story is there. Well, here's the question. Then how come I was and probably you were certainly millions and millions of people were cheering so hard for a guy who objectively from the little that we do know about him, isn't that great guy at least hasn't been and cheering form as a huge underdog went objectively. He's one more majors than anybody. But one person and he's one hundreds of millions of dollars because we're flexible. We as a species are very flexible, I wanna feel like we shoot for a real underdog. But we can you know, you can turn it. You know, think about watching the March madness if you have no real rooting interest. And so there's two schools on there. You have no idea who they are. You have no idea who those players are. But you can construct something around that game where when you know, east west North Dakota state beat somebody you go. That's the greatest thing I've ever seen your route informant that basket goes in. And then you go onto the next thing we we do construct stuff like that. And you know, he's like that the idea of the fightback that's really fight back from adversity fight back against the impossible. And the character stuff as I said, it's tricky we could because sport has been a place where we've confused being good at something having great motor skills or winning the genetic lottery, or, you know, working hard or all this up at everybody works hard. Right. We we do confuse I with character. Sometimes those things are blurred might that. You know that he's a character guy. You know? That's that's why that's why he succeeded. Not because you know, he was born this way. A or had some advantages or because there's something else inside. We got we go for that. And a lot of time and the flip side of his we're we're quite willing to ignore the opposite with where somebody could be like Michael Jordan's. Not a nice guy. Right. There's not really any suggestion. That Michael Jordan's a nice go. No there's like with tiger. There's plenty of stories to the contract. And you know, Allie was a terrible husband and a crappy fodder by and large. Now, there's also a political social components rally. So that's you know, it's a little bit different. But as I was saying before about, you know, the separating the art from the artist you can do that with our, you know, Pablo Picasso is bad guy. Right. Really bad guy. But it didn't stop anyone from treating him as Picasso during his work that way. Well, you don't have to cheer for Picasso. You don't and you can see you know, it. It gets tricky with the, you know, the Woody Allens of the world, you know, it gets it gets into some dicey territory there. Maybe I'm not sure anybody's going to listen to a Bill Cosby monologue the same way anymore. But but sport, the two things are connected. The two things are connected, and we'd like to you know, we want to kind of link those two things. Say this guy triumphed or this woman triumphed. Because a yes, they were very compact because they worked harder because they had more of that grit and character in, you know, Royal jelly, we we really we seek that. And I'm not saying, it's not true. But I think it's more that we needed to be true. Or we want it to be true sometime like it's a chicken or the egg did tiger win again because he became a better person or because he's winning again. Do we just think he became a better person Ingo? Yeah. And his backup better. Yeah. That to actually could swing a golf club dad like he may he may be a great guy now and totally, you know, Saint Paul on the road to Damascus had a moment where hang on when everything's clear down. And I'm not going to do all those terrible things anymore or maybe just got healthy. I don't know. We'll never know. But the, but the, but the former is way more compelling than the lab.
