On this special episode of Piecing It Together, one of my oldest friends and fellow composer TJ Kross joins me to talk about our picks for the best Film Scores of the decade.

If Beale Street Could Talk
On the 105th episode of Piecing It Together, new co-host Kolby Mac joins me to talk about Queen & Slim, a love story on the run starring Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith as a couple whose first date is turned upside down after they kill a cop in self defense. Puzzle pieces include If Beale Street Could Talk, Fruitvale Station, Belly and Get Out.
