My playlist for Edible Gardens LA this month is called Invisible Cities.  The inspiration is from the Italo Calvino book of the same title. 

From the book cover:

"In a garden sit the aged Kublai Khan and the young Marco -Polo- Tartar emperor and Venetian traveler.  Kublai Khan has sensed the end of his empire coming soon.  Marco Polo diverts the emperor with tales of the cities he has seen in his travels around the empire; cities and memory, cities and desire, cities and designs, cities and the dead, cities and the sky, trading cities, hidden cities.  Soon it become clear that each of these fantastic places is really the same place."

I hope this music takes you where you need to go.

Oh gosh I’m a sap for it all. I love listening to Gershwin, Sondheim, Bernstein on a Thursday night.  (at Micelis)

Teddy is spent. He listened to so much music today. He really likes Big Star, Herb Alpert and the new Benjamin Booker album. He rocked so hard he had to rest.
