I was saddened by the news that Victoria Roberts, a friend in Salem, passed away this week. She was a great lady and I was proud that she came to shows, with her bestie Melissa, and later Melissa and Adam. She was jolly and smart and kind. My heart goes out to Salem folks.

This is album by Idris Ackamoor has been a repeat summer jam, I love it.
The same goes for this one by folklorist Luis Perez. There is nothing like it--if you are commuting to work while listening to this, work is going to be in a different dimension by the time you get there.

Sometimes a funk rolls in and lands for the day, and if you are lucky you know it's not the end of the world. You run three miles, watch one of the coolest movies ever; mess around with weird tunings on a guitar with a hole in the back; take a 90 minute nap; listen to a Sharon Jones record; and make macaroni and cheese with chorizo and smoked paprika. Remember when you felt crappy for months and years at at a time.
