Seth MacFarlane: a TV maestro takes a turn with the standards.

This week on Afterglow we’ll feature Sophie Milman, a singer born in Russia, raised in Israel, and now living in Canada; veteran saxophonist Houston Person; Freddie Cole, an American popular-music legend’s brother who’s made a name for himself in his own right; and something from Seth MacFarlane, the creator of several edgy and popular TV shows who’s now done a little musical moonlighting with a Sinatraesque CD of standards.
