This country is always in motion, or as one shipping company calls it "moving at the speed of business." Before the question of slavery became a civil war, American's enjoyed their minstrel shows, and after the conflagration, touring minstrel shows were once again one of this country's favorite pastimes.
This Sunday on "The Piano," music that has many fathers, music that comes together, ferments a bit and becomes something new - different and distinctly American.
Join me as I examine composers and styles from Charles Ives to Keith Jarrett. Hear the evolution and revolution on "The Piano" this Sunday at 5 p.m. on KPAC and KTXI.
