DEREK LOVITCH: HOW TO BE A BETTER BIRDER

Date: 
Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 10:00am
Program: 

Birding is an extremely popular outdoor activity. It doesn’t matter if you are traveling the world looking for ultra-rarities or checking out the common species at the feeders in your own backyard, enjoying birds is a great way to enjoy the natural world throughout the year. But most field guides don’t tell you how to go about birding, how to start or how to improve your field skills. Tonight on Inquiry, we welcome DEREK LOVITCH, who has worked on avian research and education projects throughout the United States.

20th Anniversary Special for the Gil Evans Centennial | Miles Davis/Gil Evans: Still Ahead at the 2011 Monterey Jazz Festival

Date: 
Friday, May 18, 2012 - 6:00pm

Miles Davis and Gil Evans, trumpet and orchestrator, collaborated unforgettably on the albums Porgy and Bess and Sketches of Spain. For this occasion, Miles Evans (the son of Gil) provides the original charts for both. Terence Blanchard is the trumpet soloist, with the Vince Mendoza Orchestra from Los Angeles.
"...[T]he entire performance [of Sketches of Spain] was impeccable," blogged Richard Scheinen of the San Jose Mercury News immediately after the show. "You could hear, with clarity, the astonishing detail of Evans's writing."

Cheyenne Jackson

Date: 
Wednesday, May 16, 2012 - 6:00pm

Actor/singer Cheyenne Jackson is equally at home on Broadway and in front of the camera. He made his Broadway debut as the understudy for both male leads in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and his cabaret debut, a one man show titled Back to the Start, was a sold-out hit. Jackson has appeared on NBC’s 30 Rock and Fox’s Glee and has recorded an album of duets with Feinstein, The Power of Two. The pair are reunited here on Song Travels to discuss Jackson’s journey from Idaho to the national stage and to perform a few musical highlights from along the way.
