Ryan Truesdell's Gil Evans Centennial Project at the Newport Jazz Festival

Friday, February 1, 2013 - 6:00pm

NPR Music asks, What if there were lost big-band masterpieces by the great composer/arranger Gil Evans which never made it to record? In fact, there are plenty of them, and composer/arranger Ryan Truesdell has culled, researched and transcribed a handful of the best material for the CD Centennial: Newly Discovered Works of Gil Evans. Truesdell leads an orchestra in a live version at Newport.

Massimo Pigliucci & Grace Lin

Sunday, February 3, 2013 - 9:00pm

What is life? Aristotle believed that life is a project and the most important thing that we can do is to ask ourselves how we are going to pursue it. But where can we go for advice about the big questions in life like love, politics and morality? On Inquiry tonight we speak again with MASSIMO PIGLIUCCI, professor in the philosophy program at the City University of New York’s Graduate Center and former biology professor at Stony Brook University. His new book is titled ANSWERS FOR ARISTOTLE: HOW SCIENCE AND PHILOSOPHY CAN LEAD US TO A MORE MEANINGFUL LIFE.
