In this episode: In 2010, Cecile McLorin Salvant won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition. She joins us to sing a few songs from her new album, Woman Child

    Plus: The lives of athletes have become the raw material for new plays, musicals, and operas. Time Out New York's David Cote talks with guest host, songwriter Erin McKeown, about sports on stage, including — no joke — a musical adaptation of the classic boxing movie Rocky.

    And: We hear from Thomas Kali, director of the NBA drama Magic/Bird, and D.J. Sparr, who composed the music for Approaching Ali, an opera about the boxer Muhammad Ali.
