With a Little Help from My Friends

In my latest Jaywalking, I talk about Mexico, Reagan, Fidel Castro Jr., Walmart, WFB … And I have some musical help along the way: from Stan Kenton and June Christy; from James Taylor; from Copland and Bernstein; from Gershwin and Maazel; and from Tureck and Bach. You’ll love it — the words, maybe, the music, definitely.

P.S. More music? Well, I can offer some music writing. For a review of last night’s recital in Carnegie Hall, go here. Piotr Beczała, the Polish tenor, and Martin Katz, the American pianist, performed. And for my “New York Chronicle,” in the new New Criterion, go here.
