Jazz can struggle to find an audience, so artists are always looking for ways to appeal to a broader listenership while keeping their artistic hearts pure. In this episode, the boys look at four albums that, with much success, try to bridge the gap between jazz and more popular forms of music, along with a more "hard-core" live album that takes no prisoners -but at least offers sexy cover-art. Sigur Ros and the early -and very strange -days of Danny Elfman take up pop matters.
