Composer Lalo Schifrin is 87 years old and going strong. You might not immediately recognize his name, but you probably know his music. He's had a wide ranging career, from composing film scores to playing classical piano, and even a stint playing tango with fellow Argentinian Astor Piazzolla. On today's show, hear the Imani Winds play "La Nouvelle New Orleans," by Lalo Schifrin.
