Jazz Takes On Joni Mitchell

David Lahm and 18 all-star guests demonstrate that Joni Mitchell’s work (on its own, apart from her rendering of it) is jazz composition.

Queen of the Adriatic

Venice is a fairy tale city, rising from the sea on 119 small islands, separated
by the 160 canals that dominate Venetian life. Its jeweled Basilica is a blend
of Byzantine splendor and Western imagination and the Piazza San Marco has been proclaimed “the most beautiful room in Europe.” It has been half a millennium since Venice ruled the waves. Since then its magnificent
churches and palaces, gondolas and canals, public buildings and private villas, art museums and piazzas have steadily declined into a gorgeous decay. This installment of MUSEUM CITY SERIES showcases the thousand years of the glorious history and heartbreaking beauty that is Venice: Queen
of the Adriatic.
