– “It’s important to say what hope is not: it is not the belief that everything was, is, or will be fine. The evidence is all around us of tremendous suffering and tremendous destruction. The hope I’m interested in is about broad perspectives with specific possibilities, ones that invite or demand that we act. It’s also not a sunny everything-is-getting-better narrative, though it may be a counter to the everything-is-getting-worse narrative. You could call it an account of complexities and uncertainties, with openings.” Rebecca Solnit (Hope In The Dark).
Good morning, friends. I hope everyone is finding enough to do at home, getting out for walks, and social distancing like pros. The past week was a series of ups and downs, trying to wrap my head around what is actually happening, and doing my best to get on my horn, my yoga mat, emails, or a book to keep from going crazy. I am sure it will continue to be a journey for us all the next few weeks. So, while we get through that together, I have some new stuff for you!
Tomorrow night, SDPB Radio’s ‘Jazz Nightly’ host Karl Gehrke and I will be having a phone chat while I debut my new record ‘Water Music’ LIVE on air! I am looking forward to having this world premiere in my home state, giving all those who have supported me throughout my life the first chance to hear it. I am giddy with excitement.
What’s that…you want to hear it, too? You CAN – click here – Tuesday March 24 – at 9p central time – and hang out with us as we discuss Water Music and the Water Protectors who inspired it.
Anton Hatwich, Mai Sugimoto, Isaiah Spencer, Artie Black, Dan Pierson, and Ryan Johnson helped to bring this music to life, and I am proud to present this beautiful collaboration to you.
Tune in and join us!
