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.

We tend to think our memory works like a filing cabinet. We experience an event, generate a memory and then file it away for later use. However, according to medical research, the basic mechanisms behind memory are much more dynamic.

An experiment claims to have invalidated a decades-old criticism against pilot-wave theory, an alternative formulation of quantum mechanics that avoids the most baffling features of the subatomic universe.

Study shows how neurons reach their final destinations https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/05/160517141140.htm
The discovery that unattached, sliding microtubules aid in neuronal migration, could ultimately help researchers better understand how neurons gone astray contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism, say investigators.
