The View From L.A. with Jeff Babko

Every Monday, pianist and keyboardist Jeff Babko gives us a glimpse at the music being made in Los Angeles.

Babko will take us inside the recording studios where he’s worked with artists like Larry Carlton, Nathan East and James Taylor, the film studios where he’s worked on soundtracks including Toy Story 4 and Frozen 2, and the concert halls where he’s the musical director for Martin Short and plays nightly on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Plus, he’s got the view from the street with the latest jazz clubs to visit in the hottest L.A. neighbourhoods.
