Lopez brought Mr. Ayers to a recording studio for our story. While there, he performed this duet with Joanne Pearce Martin, Principal Keyboardist for the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Steve Lopez writes about the recording session in his most recent column.
Plus, the LA Times has collected all the columns Lopez has written about Nathaniel Ayers on this page. More video there, too.
