Story

This is a live interview program that invites guests to bring recordings they'd want with them on an imaginary desert island. Each guest is also asked to bring a book and one luxury item. It was great fun!

These clips are only the interview portions of the show. Check the list above for the music I selected.

Lyrics

Alisa gives my bio and welcomes me to the Desert Island. The recordings I chose were: "Stopgap"*, from "Amazing Space."

"Salt Peanuts," from "Jazz At Massey Hall."

"Without Your Love" from "Billie Holiday, The Golden Years."

"Ugly Beauty" from "Monk's Bones.

"Blue & Sentimental"* from "Off The Ground."

"Aria" from "Bach Bachianas, The Yale Cellos of Aldo Parisot" Arleen Auger, soprano solist.

"In My Solitude," from "Ella Fitzgerald Day Dream: best of the Duke Ellington Songbook."

"In Front," from "Facing You," Keith Jarrett.

This segment opens with the end of "Blue & Sentimental," from my recording "Off The Gound." I tell the story of this recording, some of my musical influences, a high school choir story, and more.

Story

This fades into the end of "Ugly Beauty," from the CD "Monk's Bones" that Roswell Rud and I recorded with Monk's Music Trio. I tell my Purple Grotto story, and introduce "Aria" from a sublime recording for soprano & 12 cellos. You'll hear just a bit of the end of "Aria," and then the interview continues. I reveal the book I've brought on the Desert Island, and introduce a recording by Ella Fitzgerald and Barney Kesssel.

We talk a bit about my future plans, and I reveal my Desert Island luxury item. We close with one of my altime favorite recordings, "In Front," by solo pianist Keith Jarrett. You'll hear only a few seconds of it. Thanks for listening!
