Sound Tracks | Tom Harrell Performs "Beau Soir" (Debussy) | PBS

Duration: 05:34
Program: Sound Tracks: Music Without Borders (Pilot)
Broadcast Date: Jan. 9, 2012

It might seem strange that a composer as original as Tom Harrell would throw himself into the melodies of dead French impressionists, but he's done far more than write "jazz" arrangements of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. While staying true to the melodic roots of the music, he's effectively re-composed these pieces.
