In this episode: Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle talks about an unseen character from most of his films, the soundtrack. Boyle tells Soundcheck about handpicking music for Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, and most recently, his high-tech heist noir Trance.

Grammy-nominated composer and pianist Omar Sosa was inspired by Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue for his new record. Hear Sosa play songs from Eggun, which carries the spirit of Davis, live in the Soundcheck studio. 

And Planet Money's Adam Davidson explains why even with ticket scalping concert ticket prices are just too low. 

Guests:

Danny Boyle, Adam Davidson and Omar Sosa
