On this program, the simplest of musical forms - song - from reserved to the strange and unusual. Begin with South American songs sung by the German songstress Ute Lemper and hear a song recorded in the late Antonio Carlos Jobim's house and included on the CD, Casa, by Morelenbaum2 / Sakamoto (Paula Morelebaum, Jaques Morelenbaum, Ryuichi Sakamoto). Continue with works by The Roches, Ed Pastorini, Massive Attack, Solas, Alex Cline, and others. Also, Wilco and Nick Drake complete this idiosyncratic hour-long collection of songs.
