Fine Dining...

Had a chat with a friend from my past this morning.  Years ago... she introduced me to the healing power that the music of  Cat Stevens, a good meal, & conversation with friends can have on one's outlook for the future.
    ...Thanks D.

Morning has Broken  ~  Cat Stevens

A unique live performance of Morning has Broken (link can't be embedded here)

Note: I know there will be those who write me to complain about Yusuf Islam / Cat Stevens. I offer this next song... but its the Music which personally brings me a sense of Peace, not the politics of deaf men around the globe.

Music Pill

"There's no damn business like show business...
      you have to smile to keep from throwing up"
                                                                                                                        Billie Holiday

If it wasn't for healing power of The MUSIC I would have never tried to find John Bartee... the business of Music, and the actions & deeds of those collecting the dead presidents will turn your soul.

ASCAP has made it very hard to do what is right regarding John's son.  I have jumped over and over to get them to acknowledge the truth.  I need some MUSIC to get me ready for the next round.  Been listening to something a little different than Big Band, Jazz & Latin...   

Influenced to pick up a guitar by Charlie Christian,  here is someone who can start us on a enjoyable journey.
