EP.05 - Vijay Iyer / A Night At The Movies
3500

Vijay Iyer joins Robin D.G. Kelley for a journey into Garner’s 1965 trio album A Night At The Movies. Their conversation not only deconstructs that music, but it explores the deep connections between Vijay Iyer’s own work as a musician and scholar, and the foundational elements of Garner’s unique and undeniable artistry. A Night At The Movies is Garner’s love letter to the films of his youth, and contains some of the finest studio recordings of his longest running trio with drummer Kelly Martin and bassist Eddie Calhoun.

EP.04 - Terri Lyne Carrington / A New Kind Of Love
3680

Terri Lyne Carrington and host Robin D.G. Kelley step inside Erroll’s Garner’s underrated opus, A New Kind of Love. Carrington is the only drummer to appear on the Uncovered podcast, and she brings her own nuanced perspective on Garner’s unique rhythmic approach. She and Dr. Kelley unpack the gendered complexities of the film A New Kind of Love, Garner’s process of arranging for orchestra, and the role their friend Geri Allen played in preserving Garner’s legacy. This album represents Garner’s only orchestral film scoring. Recorded separately, and in addition to the film score itself, Garner improvises alongside a roaring 35-piece orchestra.
