There are many versions of the Motown hit “I Heard It Through the Grapevine.” Since it was first immortalized by Marvin Gaye, it’s been covered by an all-girl punk band and made into an ad jingle for raisins. Tonight we hear singer Alicia Hall Moran’s rendition, a spellbinding operatic-cabaret version recorded live with her husband, pianist Jason Moran, at WNYC’s new Greene Space. Also, music from Misha Alperin and Duke Pearson.
