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.

Gravitational waves detected 100 years after Einstein's prediction http://phys.org/news/2016-02-gravitational-years-einstein.html
For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime called gravitational waves, arriving at Earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe. This confirms a major prediction of Albert Einstein's 1915 general theory of relativity and opens an unprecedented new window to the cosmos.

After 100 years, scientists are finally closing in on Einstein’s ripples http://arstechnica.com/science/2016/02/after-100-years-scientists-are-finally-closing-in-on-einsteins-ripples/
Ars goes inside ground zero of the search for gravitational waves.

In an unassuming research lab, Volkswagen is solving problems that Tesla and Google haven't come close to cracking.

Is that some quantum in your bent space or are you just happy to see me?

A new quantum approach to big data http://phys.org/news/2016-01-quantum-approach-big.html
From gene mapping to space exploration, humanity continues to generate ever-larger sets of data—far more information than people can actually process, manage, or understand.

NASA releases even more of its fantastical space tourism posters http://www.theverge.com/2016/2/9/10955126/nasa-space-posters-travel-tourism-planets
You might think NASA is a big bureaucratic agency that only operates according to rules, regulations, and process — and you'd mostly be right. But the space agency is also full of dreamers and...

They should hire meth heads. They're real good at that, I hear.
