AMERICAN HIGHWAYS #42: REMIXES
Remixes can go by many names and take many forms: variations, transcriptions, paraphrases, abbreviations, elaborations – 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.
