Critical Thinking: A Conversation with Alex Ross (Rebroadcast)

Alex-ross 2010

Alex Ross

My guest is New Yorker music critic, award-winning and best-selling author of The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century, MacArthur Fellow, and music weblog pioneer with therestisnoise.com, Mr. Alex Ross, discussing his new book of essays and profiles, Listen To This.

From bass lines to Björk, Marian Anderson to Radiohead, Bob Dylan to Brahms, Alex brings together topics from his acclaimed New Yorker pieces, mixes in a new essay and lots of great notes and references, and places them elegantly between two hard covers. We talk about them and even play some music.
