The Drop: Glen Ballard


As part of the GRAMMY Museum’s Programs at Home series, Moderator Scott Goldman interviews six-time GRAMMY-winner Glen Ballard about the making of the new Netflix original series, The Eddy.

Brought to the screen through a collaboration between Alan Poul, Damien Chazelle, BAFTA Award winner Jack Thorne (National Treasure) and Glen Ballard, The Eddy takes place in the vibrant multicultural neighborhoods of modern-day Paris, where a once celebrated jazz pianist in New York named Elliot is now the co-owner of struggling club, The Eddy, where he manages the house band fronted by lead singer and on-again-off-again girlfriend Maja. Music is featured heavily throughout the TV series, with several original songs in each episode. All original songs were written by Ballard who also serves as an executive producer for the show and Randy Kerber, and are performed by The Eddy Cast Band, which includes drummer Lada Obradovic, bass player Damien Nueva Cortes, sax player Jowee Omicil, Ludovic Louis on trumpet, Randy Kerber on piano and singer Joanna Kulig who also stars in the show. The album also includes covers by St. Vincent and Jorja Smith.
