Mandolinist Chris Thile's roots lie in bluegrass, but like Brad Mehldau, his curiosity and wide-open ears make him incredibly versatile. We'll hear a couple of tunes from their album on this episode, along with new music from the Steve Kuhn Trio and an Indo-Australian collaboration led by saxophonist Matt Keegan
