Carli Muñoz On Piano Jazz 2006

carliMunozAnother cool NPR Piano Jazz episode today, this one with the great pianist and organist Carli Muñoz. I’ve visited his restaurant in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico a couple of times and had the chance to watch him play and sit and talk with him on both occasions. A great piano player and a very nice man. Carli discusses everything from his early career to his long stint with the Beach Boys to of course his great jazz club.

Set list for this interview:

  • “Mia” (Muñoz)
  • “We’ll Be Together Again” (Fischer, Laine)
  • “So In Love” (Porter)
  • “Stranger In A Dream” (McPartland)
  • “Now Is The Time” (Parker)
  • “Diaspora” (Muñoz)
  • “Margot” (Jarrett)
  • “A Delicate Balance” (McPartland)
  • “Three Little Steps To Heaven” (Muñoz)

Nine interviews with Carli Muñoz

The legendary jazz pianist and long time Beach Boys sideman Carli Muñoz plays almost every night at his restaurant Carli’s Bistro in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Eating there last night and listening to him play so beautifully inspired me to post a link to his interviews page on his personal website.
