It’s been too hot to be doing much moving around outside, the house captures plenty heat throughout the day, night time is welcomed with the coolness that it brings. One of the reasons for laid back nature of todays selection. That and because there is plenty plenty out there that needs to be shared; Art Blakey and Sabu Martinez, Saul Williams, Dudu Pukwana, Portico Quartet, and much more. The Sakamoto/N’dour collaboration is up there in the ‘One of the most beautiful songs ever’ category.
I was fortunate to see a performance by Mary Margaret O’Hara around the time of her ‘Miss America’ album release. She captured the audience with her eclectic country-tinged songs coming through the Bakerlite radio sound, seemingly random body movements, and sheer honesty in how she is.
