This week we focus on the music of Wayne Horvitz with special attention for his latest two releases, The Snowghost Sessions and Those Who Remain. It's hard to condense in two hours the long career and many facets of a composer and pianist of great versatility, but we will do our best to present highlights from his various projects as a leader and side-man.

Happy listening!
