Quentin Tarantino on the 'Django Unchained' soundtrack

In yesterday's New Year's Day Inquirer, I had a story - or a 'critic's notebook,' as we say in the trade - about the music in three movies currently playing in a multiplex near you: Not Fade Away, This Is 40, and Django Unchained. That thumbsucker is here.

A couple of weeks back, Quentin Tarantino dropped in at Sirius / XM satellite radio studios in Manhattan and did one of his favorite things - talked - about the music to Django Unchained. The 'D' is silent, but he rarely is. Listen to his commentary, and the entire soundtrack, in the Soundcloud stream below.
