American Highways

American Highways Episode 20: La Bonne Cuisine

Music of Leonard Bernstein, Frank Zappa, Henry Mancini, T.J. Anderson and Taj Mahal. Songs about food, about eating, about being eaten, and of course music to eat by, for, and with. Bring your knife and fork!

In this episode of American Highways, pianist Guy Livingston brings us a new episode about food, a seemingly inexhaustible subject, saucy and filling. Also a few stories about his grandmother, and her days in radio at Rockefeller Center.
