Podcast: Modern Remixes

Modern remixes can go by many names and take many forms: variations, transcriptions, paraphrases, abbreviations, elaborations – tonight we start with a lounge/techno remix of Ballet mécanique, race past the Flintstones, and then settle in for luxuriant jazz versions of Scarlatti, Bach, and Piazzolla – by Donal Fox and his quartet.
American Highways is hosted by pianist Guy Livingston. This show is in memory of Geoff Council, April 12, 1970 – September 13, 2013.
