Originally published on Sat February 16, 2013 10:15 am
Fresh Air Weekend highlights some of the best interviews and reviews from past weeks, and new program elements specially paced for weekends. Our weekend show emphasizes interviews with writers, filmmakers, actors and musicians, and often includes excerpts from live in-studio concerts. This week:
An 'Autopsy' Of Detroit Finds Resilience In A Struggling City: To some, Detroit may be a symbol of urban decay; but to journalist Charlie LeDuff, it's home. In Detroit: An American Autopsy, he says the city's heart beats on. "We're still here trying to reconstruct the great thing we once had," he tells Fresh Air's Dave Davies.
Anat Cohen: Bringing The Clarinet To The World: On her latest album, Claroscuro, the jazz clarinetist explores influences that range from Louis Armstrong to Brazilian music to that of her native Israel. It's this desire to adapt the instrument to so many musical traditions that has earned Cohen such acclaim.
'Electric' Love On Richard Thompson's New Album: The singer-songwriter's subject of choice is often his, shall we say, complex relations with women. On his new album, Richard Thompson is still coming to terms with the sources of his frustrations which ought to give him material for many more years to come.
