On this edition of The Versus Podcast, it's time to have a 'Come to Jesus' moment about Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers. Is Kaepernick's future with the franchise in question, or can this organization salvage the quarterback situation and make it work moving forward?
Also, the Oakland Raiders might not be a bad team this year. It's a celebration in the East Bay! Can the Fighting Derek Carr's keep it up?
Finally, we introduce Logan's Lounge onto the podcast, where we use the #AskTVP hashtag and answer absurd questions about Drake vs. Future vs. Meek Mill, blocking and more.

When we last spoke to the inside/out beautiful Romain Collin, he was immersed in another project. That's the correct term: immersed. When listening to the way he offers music, there is the distinct feeling that Romain had nothing else on his mind but living the chords he was playing. You can almost see him: eyes closed, smiling at memories - or hope from an anticipated time, savoring the life captured in five minutes worth of piano resuscitation.
Our guest just celebrated his birthday. He's young - not yet 40 - but Romain has lived much longer than that. The echoes of other times linger in his songs. Beautifully scary. Right on time for Halloween :) We'll have to ask if that event is celebrated in France, the country of his birth. What the French celebrate for SURE: education. And a beloved transplant knows all about that. At Berklee first (scholarship), he was then accepted at the Monk Institute (another scholarship!). During that time, he was fortunate to be able to tour with two key legends who oversee admissions into the school: Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter. He also studied with Ron Carter, Charlie Haden and Mulgrew Miller.
2008 saw his debut "stick" with Jazz critics. "The Rise and Fall of Pipokuhn" created a reverberation throughout the community - and Romain was invited to join the esteemed Marian McPartland on her popular "Jazz Piano" radio show. In 2012, this "visionary" (NPR) joined us on the show to tell us about "The Calling" - which resulted in more praise from those who don't tend to do so. Orchestral film scoring - and playing with Christian McBride and Lauryn Hill (among others) - kept him busy every single day. But his eye was on a third album - and here it is. Join us for a discussion of "Press Enter!" 10/29 :)
