Carli Muñoz On Piano Jazz

NPR
Friday, November 1, 2013

Pianist Carli Muñoz's musical journey has taken him from Puerto Rico to the studios and clubs of Los Angeles — and then back to the island of his birth, where he owns his own jazz club. His musical career has taken a similar circular trajectory. Having started out as a jazz musician, he played with pop musicians such as The Beach Boys and Rickie Lee Jones before returning full time to his first love: jazz. In this 2007 session, he plays his own tune "Mia" and joins host Marian McPartland for Cole Porter's "So In Love."

Originally broadcast in the winter of 2007.

  • "Mia" (Muñoz)
  • "We'll Be Together Again" (Fischer, Laine)
