It’s Music Therapy time!

It is Thursday, after all. Last week? Justin Timberlake and Gwen Stefani. Next week: who knows? This week something that’s (as always) completely different. Start with maybe twenty drones tricked out with synchronized lights. Link those lights to a bank of Shaminsens, traditional Japanese guitars, and hit play with Mt. Fuji as the backdrop. It all comes together rather nicely, …

Featuring a star-studded cast of tens, this catchy tune is a worthy source of music therapy. Please enjoy responsibly.

Your mid-week break has arrived

This isn’t the typical excursion to some exotic and faraway corner of the globe that we so often do here on Wednesdays. It is, though, far away in that this, boys and girls, is the kind of stuff children used to entertain themselves with: not necessarily creations this intricate, but that kids of days gone by could entertain themselves with …

This is Prince-related. Of course. Aside from that, it’s exceptional guitar work. (And the drumming is great too.)

This week’s videocation

We sometimes call it The Hump Day Hiatus. This week it’s a day late, but really, when is it not a good time for a brief yet refreshing break? Today we journey to the Ventana Wilderness of California, part of the Los Padres National Forest, to meet Jack English, all of 93 years old, living a life of solitude in …

For Prince: Music Therapy

With the news of Prince’s death, today seems like an appropriate day to remember one of our all-time favorites: Hannah Ford (Hannah Ford Welton), a member of Prince’s inner circle of musical collaborators and one of the most powerful – and beautiful – drummers ever on the rock & roll scene. She was part of Prince’s touring band for New …
