Formatted Abstract/Summary
Duo performances of selections from the song catalogue of Van Dyke Parks spanning his 50-year career, with Van Dyke Parks singing and playing piano and Robert Davidson playing double bass.

Parks most notably collaborated with Brian Wilson on the notorious "lost" Beach Boys album, Smile. His collaborators have included Bruce Springsteen, U2, Cher, Ry Cooder, Linda Ronstadt, Sheryl Crow, Joanna Newsom, Silverchair and Kimbra. Parks features on albums by The Grateful Dead, The Byrds and Keith Moon, and his own 1968 album Song Cycle is widely considered a leading masterpiece of American songwriting.

The performance is an exploration of cross-genre music making, between singer-songwriter Parks and classical composer/performer Robert Davidson.
