I had the great fortune of being able to create space for my dear friend +lanny cordola so that he could express his take on this Van Morrison song.

Lanny and Gary Griffin produced and arranged a collection of spirituals we called, "Shades of Blue." 

He gathered great friends and fellow master musicians together for the project.

My art direction was simple; reflect the work of Blue Note and the great records that have inspired us throughout the years.

Recorded January/ February, 1994 in Panorama City CA, at the Hall of Supreme Harmony by Gary Griffin.

Sandra Stephens' vocal approach here is pure and powerful.
Lanny, 6 & 12 string guitars, balalaika
Gary, organ, indian harmonium, xylophone, bell lyre
Tony Murga, harmonica
Scott Breadman, bells, tambourine 
+John Stamos, congas
Richard Cook, uilleann pipes
David Enos, acoustic Bass
Scott Breadman, bells, tambourine

Twenty years later, this song still flows in my heart as a meditation to never stop 'Till We Get the Healing Done.'

Below is a free, full resolution play for you.

It is my hope that you'll take a moment and, with good speakers or headphones, listen to their work.

150 Years After Maxwell, Scientists Discover Fundamental Property of Light http://bigthink.com/ideafeed/150-years-after-maxwell-scientists-discover-fundamental-property-of-light 
Light plays a vital role in our everyday lives and technologies based on light are all around us. So we might expect that our understanding of light is pretty settled. But scientists have just uncovered a new fundamental property of light that gives new insight into the 150-year-old classical theory of electromagnetism and which could lead to applications manipulating light at the nanoscale.

How to manually create a Story in Google Photos – Android customization http://www.androidauthority.com/create-google-photos-story-android-customization-622161/ 
While Google Maps has proven to be the best real-time traffic tracking navigation tool on my Android device, last week's Android customization using Zooper Widget has been a priceless addition to the experience. I hope it has helped you speed up your usage of Maps as well. If you are like me, you've been getting in some travel this summer. While on the road, many of us go a little snap happy with our cameras, and then have dozens, hundreds or ...

Microplastics entering ocean food web through zooplankton, researchers find http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/06/150629133813.htm 
Tiny microscopic animals called zooplankton are ingesting plastic particles at an alarming rate, according to a new study. That could not only pose a risk to salmon but also spell trouble for the entire aquatic food web -- from zooplankton to humpback whales.

Is the universe ringing like a crystal glass? http://phys.org/news354561447.html 
Many know the phrase 'the big bang theory.' There's even a top television comedy series with that as its title. According to scientists, the universe began with the 'big bang' and expanded to the size it is today. Yet, the gravity of all of this matter, stars, gas, galaxies, and mysterious dark matter, ...

Fermi Paradox, Doomsday Argument, Simulation Hypothesis—is our view of reality seriously flawed? http://ieet.org/index.php/IEET/more/bruere20150627#When:16:58:00Z 
There are three interlocking statistical arguments concerning the nature of the universe in which we live and which provide what I believe to be a strongly convincing indication that our view of reality is seriously flawed on a massive scale. Let’s begin by asking a simple question…

Supercomputer model shows planet making waves in nearby debris disk http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/06/150625161445.htm
A new supercomputer simulation of the planet and debris disk around the nearby star Beta Pictoris reveals that the planet's motion drives spiral waves throughout the disk, a phenomenon that causes collisions among the orbiting debris. Patterns in the collisions and the resulting dust appear to account for many observed features that previous research has been unable to fully explain.
