Life is constructed from the stories we tell, suggests this splendid musician, film-maker (and more). "What else is there but stories?" she asks. "Well," I reply geriatrically, "there's the truth."

Plus terrific music from the Villalobos brothers - Alberto, Ernesto and Luis - with Sergio Ramiriez. And somebody makes dog sounds in three registers - hint, not me - at JCC Manhattan.
