As part of "Think Global," Public Radio's week of special coverage, Performance Today has been exploring connections between folk music and classical music all week. Today, we wrap things up with what some folks consider American indigenous folk music, American jazz. We open the hour with the Jacques Loussier Trio playing their own special version of Erik Satie's Gymnopedie No. 1.
