Audra McDonald performs in the Soundcheck studio.

In this episode: In his new book, The Bee Gees: The Biography, writer David N. Meyer looks back at the music and legacy of The Bee Gees and its trademark soaring falsetto. 

Actress and soprano Audra McDonald recently starred in Broadway's revival of Porgy and Bess. Now, she's back with her first solo album in seven years, Go Back Home, featuring songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein and Stephen Sondheim, among others. McDonald performs songs from that album in the studio.

And mandolin extraordinaire Chris Thile performs the sonatas of Bach.
