Blues, Jazz, and Soul at the Oscars

It was a very good year for movie soundtracks.

The 93rd Academy Awards will take place this coming Sunday, and after a year in which most movies were never screened in a theater, several came with soundtracks that caught our ears. We'll listen to tracks featured in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, One Night in Miami, The United States vs. Billie Holiday, and Soul. Wednesday 4/21 at 9 pm.
