Tonight's program features an in-studio performance by fiddler Mark O'Connor and his Hot Trio. The trio's Sony Odyssey CD "In Full Swing" was a tribute to Stephane Grappelli and included inspired takes on such standards as "Fascinating Rhythm," "Lime House Blues," "Honeysuckle Rose," and "As Time Goes By." The project is more than mere a nostalgia trip, coupling the classic tunes with a contemporary harmonic and rhythmic sensibility that is unpredictable and invigorating. Also, we feature a conversation with Macao-born, American-based composer Bun Ching Lam.
