In my new piece for honoring Elliott Carter's 110th birthday, I try to offer a guide for how to actually *listen* to his music, which has attracted more than its fair share of highly technical or highly subjective articles.

The Birdman situation was similar to Green Book and both cases suggest that the Academy doesn’t see jazz techniques as on the same level as traditional approaches to movie scoring. That needs to change.

Happy 80th birthday to pianist McCoy Tyner, who gets sounds out of those 88 keys that simply didn’t exist before he showed the way. If you gauge an artist‘s work by how much others borrow and steal from it, Tyner is in a very elite group indeed.

In an equally bizarre situation, the score for the movie Solo, composed by John Powell with themes by John Williams, was disqualified because somebody forgot to submit it for Oscar consideration. It was one of the top 10 soundtracks I heard during 2018.

Kris Bowers’ score for “Green Book” has been disqualified from Oscar consideration because of the Don Shirley piano trio music prominently featured in the movie -- but Bowers transcribed and performed it himself in addition to composing the score!
