We’re rerunning this episode with Awadagin Pratt basically because we felt like it. But we don’t think you’re going to mind, as he is awesome. Let his dulcet tones wash over you as Pratt teaches you all about why Brahms is one of the Big Daddies of classical music, what it has to do with Edith Bunker, and how the beard made it all possible.
Also, we just found out that Awadagin was on freaking Sesame Street with Big Bird!! Check it out:
All music in this episode from Awadagin Pratt and Zuill Bailey’s CD “Brahms Works For Cello And Piano”.
