The Atlantic Ocean at Robert Moses State Park, Long Island

There’'s something titillating about travel.  Whether it’s the sprawling landscape of the American Southwest or the beignets made in the French Quarter, getting away from the city for the summer is a unwritten tradition for New Yorkers.  On this episode, host Terrance McKnight tours the globe through music.  It'’s an exploration of composers capturing particular musical traditions found in cities and countries around the world.  The program concludes with music by an New York City musical icon.
