Good episode? Give it some love!
Our latest guest on Soundtracking is American playwright and film and theatre director, George C Wolfe.

Now it's with a certain sadness we welcome George to the show, as his latest offering Ma Rainey's Black Bottom also happens to be Chadwick's last performance before his passing. But what a performance it is, as he and Viola Davis put on a virtuoso show as the eponymous blues singer and the trumpeter in her band. 

It's available to watch on Netflix now - so you can see for yourself why it landed numerous award nominations and received widespread critical acclaim.
