I got hit with deadlines today, so no real links round-up; maybe I’ll manage tomorrow. But in the meantime, or maybe in place of it, here’s something to hold you: two wonderful pieces of music.
I dug out an old album I’d forgotten about to listen to while working, thought, I wonder if there’s a video of them performing this song, and looked to see. No—but there they are doing something else that’s equally splendid. Zap Mama… so fine. (Looks like you’ll have to follow the link to YouTube; you should do so.)
Eva Cassidy could make any song sound new again. Every time I listen to her I’m blown away. And as I understand it, this was recorded when she had a bad cold. Go watch all her videos.
