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.

For the first time, researchers are able to extend the lifetime of a quantum bit, or qubit, using error correction – an essential step to useful quantum computers

Weird quantum effects stretch across hundreds of miles http://phys.org/news/2016-07-weird-quantum-effects-hundreds-miles.html
In the world of quantum, infinitesimally small particles, weird and often logic-defying behaviors abound. Perhaps the strangest of these is the idea of superposition, in which objects can exist simultaneously in two or more seemingly counterintuitive states. For example, according to the laws of quantum mechanics, electrons may spin both clockwise and counter-clockwise, or be both at rest and excited, at the same time.

Ever play with a magnifying lens as a kid? Imagine a lens as big as the Earth. Now focus sunlight down to a pencil tip. That still wouldn't be good enough for what some Texas scientists have in mind. They want to make light even 500 times more intense. And they say it could open the door to the most powerful radiation in the universe: gamma rays.

Scientists observe Z-boson production with two associated photons http://phys.org/news/2016-07-scientists-z-boson-production-photons.html
An international group of physicists has observed Z-boson production with two associated photons with later Z decay to electrons, muons or neutrinos at the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in CERN.

Insights from +Steven Levy about how Google is transforming itself into an AI company.

Excerpt:
'Considering the vast size of Google’s workforce — probably almost half of its 60,000 headcount are engineers — this is a tiny project. But the program symbolizes a cognitive shift in the company. Though machine learning has long been part of Google’s technology — and Google has been a leader in hiring experts in the field — the company circa 2016 is obsessed with it. In an earnings call late last year, CEO Sundar Pichai laid out the corporate mindset: “Machine learning is a core, transformative way by which we’re rethinking how we’re doing everything. We are thoughtfully applying it across all our products, be it search, ads, YouTube, or Play. And we’re in early days, but you will see us — in a systematic way — apply machine learning in all these areas.”'
If you want to build artificial intelligence into every product, you better retrain your army of coders. Check.
