Take a ten minute jazz break with Joshua Redman and Brad Mehldau—-
Mehldau/Redman Duo-“You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To”
This, my friends, is bound to be one great concert. It’s all about the intimate spaces left untouched by these guys; they have absolute control of the mood.
Happy Birthday, Maya Angelou.
In 1997 LIFE asked the writer and poet Maya Angelou if she would consider writing on the topic of heroes and heroism for the magazine. Above are the two concluding stanzas.
These mothers, fathers, pastors and priests,
These Rabbis, imams and gurus,
Teach us by their valor and mold us with their courage.
Without their fierce devotion
We are only forlorn and only fragile
Stumbling briefly, among the stars.
Maya Angelou, “Extravagant Spirits”
Broussard’s Lament by Sarah Jarosz
She is quickly becoming one of my fav bluegrass acts.
