They formed a Nashville supergroup, who have already played sold-out shows across the country, despite only releasing two songs.

The Inspector General of the Department of Justice, Michael Horowitz, released a report last week that examined allegations of political bias within the F-B-I. The investigation came after text messages sent by one F-B-I agent before the 2016 election was seen by many as a sign of bias against then-candidate Donald Trump. Monday, Horowitz, along with F-B-I director Christopher Wray took questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee about those findings, and the inspector general meets the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday.

In an agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, President Trump announced that he will bring an end to joint military exercises with South Korea. Doing so signals a change to an alliance that dates back decades. Many of United States allies are now wondering what this means for other long-kept agreements and institutions. How President Trump is changing the world order this morning on Morning Edition from NPR News.

Humorist Will Rogers used to quip: "I'm not a member of any organized political party. I'm a Democrat." We can all have a good chuckle at that. But the deep problems with politics in the U.S. are too serious to laugh at. The Democratic Party has in recent decades abandoned to a great extent its New Deal social welfare roots. The party of Roosevelt and Truman has embraced Wall Street bankers, hedge fund managers and financiers. The interests of corporations and the business class have immiserated the working class.

“I think this question of inequity is also really, really important,” states Katharine Mach. “And the flipside of that is that wealth is not necessarily protection.”

In this hour of Blue Dimensions, new music from pianist Kenny Barron and his Quintet, an album called "Concentric Circles." Barron received the National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master designation eight years ago, and numerous other honors, including, six times, the Jazz Journalist's Association Best Pianist award, so he has made for himself a large footprint to fill, but he and his band are fully up to the task on "Concentric Circles." We'll hear some original Barron pieces, and a Thelonious Monk composition from the Quintet - - and Monk will make an appearance as well, with tenor sax g

From “Ol’ Man River” to “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” we turn to the American songbook for portraits of fatherhood, both kindly and cautionary, from down-home country to down-with-the-man rock’n‘roll and soul. We talk to New Orleans jazz patriarch Ellis Marsalis about family life and raising four career musicians—Wynton, Branford, Jason and Delfeayo. Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys tells of working in the studio with his dad, Chuck Auerbach, who is making his recording debut at age 68 with Remember Me. Daughter Rosanne remembers Johnny Cash’s voice and her favorite of his tunes.

Welles is the rock and roll moniker of Jesse Wells. Welles grew up in rural Arkansas where his early bands got together to rock out in giant barns that were built to house turkeys. After graduating from college, Welles moved to Nashville and has just released his debut album. The record's single, "Seventeen," was produced by Dave Cobb.

This week, Ric continues his travel series with a listen to the bands and artists who have defined Canadian rock n' roll: Steppenwolf, Neil Young, BTO, The Guess Who, The Tragically Hip, Cowboy Junkies, 54-40, Chilliwack, Sloan, Rush, Crash Test Dummies, Bruce Cockburn, The New Pornographers, Broken Social Scene, and much more.

Smith College

We remember feminist author and the first female president of Smith College, Jill Ker Conway.  She died Friday at the age of 83.  She was raised on a remote sheep farm in Australia, where her first schooling was through correspondence.  She wrote three acclaimed memoirs.

Natalie Prass had a new album written but not yet recorded when the 2016 election happened. With how she had been feeling after the results came in, you might expect an angry sounding record, but The Future and The Past is full of a dancy sense of hope. She will explain why, and how Stevie Wonder is partially responsible on the next World Cafe.
