Ola Gjeilo 'Night' makes KCRW: 'Rhythm Planet - May Melomania'

Bookmark and Share

This week, Rhythm Planet whips up our usual recipe – a mix of new and older releases across a range of musical styles. The playlist begins with Norwegian pianist and composer Ola Gjeilo, from a gorgeous new album called Night-so named as he composed the music at night while looking out over the New York City skyline. I find the entire album perfect for pandemic listening; it's soothing and beautiful but never sappy or sentimental.
