Way Down in The Hole: HBO's The Wire Digs Deep Into Baltimore's Underground For a Soundtrack Album (Al Shipley, City Paper)

Blake Leyh has worked as The Wire's music director for all of the series' five seasons, incorporating a minimal, diegetic score into the acclaimed urban drama. But it wasn't until a couple of years ago, while assembling the fourth season, that Leyh let Baltimore itself seep into the background music. And much of that local flavor, from hip-hop to jazz to club music, made its way onto The Wire: And All the Pieces Matter--Five Years of Music From the Wire (Nonesuch), the show's soon to be released official soundtrack.
