On the latest episode of Extra Eclectic, host Steve Seel plays music in honor of our migrating avian friends — from Norman Dello Joio's Exaltation of Larks and Terry Riley's Mythic Birds Waltz to Jennifer Bellor's Skylark Lullaby and Christopher Gunning's Birdflight. The second hour includes a tribute to jazz iconoclast Carla Bley, who died Tuesday at 87, with a selection from her album Fancy Chamber Music.
