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.

Yesterday, Google announced a feature that allows you to send directions to your Android phone directly from a search box. What they didn’t announce is that you can also use “note to self” to send a reminder directly to your notification shade.

(Phys.org)—Newton's gravitational constant, G, has been measured about a dozen times over the last 40 years, but the results have varied by much more than would be expected due to random and systematic errors.
