    Catching Up with Gil - A new series of reissues reaffirms the genius of rap's granddaddy

    Gil Scott-Heron has never been one to wait around for life's battles to come to him. He's expended enormous amounts of energy publicly lambasting three U.S. presidents (Nixon, Ford and Reagan), and yet he has still managed to publish three influentia...

    Generation Exceptional - Pianist Orli Shaham rides the crest of classical's new wave
