Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland
Sunday at 11am
Pianist Carli Muñoz’s musical journey has taken him from Puerto Rico to the studios and clubs of LA, and 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. On this 2007 Piano Jazz, he plays his own tune “Mia” and joins McPartland for Cole Porter’s “So In Love.”

The Cost of War: A Reflection on the United States and Iraq Conflict -- Almost 4,500 American soldiers and more than 100,000 Iraqis have died since the beginning of the Iraq War in 2003. Although President Obama officially declared the end of U.S. combat in August 2010, 50,000 U.S. troops still occupy Iraqi soil and financially it's estimated to cost $750 billion dollars thus far. Fourteen years after the U.S.' began its "Shock and Awe" campaign, we look back and assess the consequences of the war. On this edition, we hear an audio documentary, "The Cost of War - A Reflection on the United States and Iraq Conflict" produced by KALW News in San Francisco.
