Remembering Ellas Otha Bates

Known by so many as Bo Diddley..it was an honor for me to be able to get a chance to meet/interview and become friendly with him a few years before his passing. Here is the audio recording of our chat back inn the day. it is one of the most memorable interviews I have ever done. Today would have been another birthday to celebrate with him…so this reflection time is a chance to do that.

When the GRAMMY nominations were announced earlier this month, a light shined on the untold story of a singer little-known in the music scene. This is the tale of a woman who scoured every corner of the planet in search of soulful music, while climbing the elite ranks of business circles. After years of intense study, she is taking an ancient song form normally sung on streets and in homes, and sharing them in service to others. Her name is Chandrika Krishnamurthy Tandon and her album, Om Namo Narayanaya: SOUL CALL (on Soul Chants Music), has been nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Contemporary World Music Album category, alongside musical greats like Béla Fleck, Bebel Gilberto, Angelique Kidjo, and Sergio Mendes. Soul Call is more than music. The eight songs were composed around a single eight-syllable chant that is over six thousand years old. Chandrika composed each song to follow a different Indian raga. She recruited global sarodCalcutta and New York. maestro Tejendra Narayan Majumdar to create arrangements using over 30 acoustic Indian classical, folk, and Western instruments including the vibraphone, acoustic guitar, and bass. The eight syllables of this chant-Om Na Mo Na Ra Ya Na Ya-are believed to form a protective armor around the body. “These syllables are literally vibrations from the ancient Vedic tradition handed down from generation to generation,” explains Chandrika. “Many traditions have incredible healing mantras whether in Africa, Brazil or Tibet . I can’t tell you in detail how they work; some things are beyond explanation. You have to experience it yourself.”
And that is my recommendation to you, try it out yourself. I will be spinning her album on the show soon, but feel free to get yourself ahead of me. Ears to the finish line!

Tree Branch Ledge

I want to thank Todd Clouser for being a guest on the proGram today as he will be in town on Friday 12/17 at The Frequency. He will bring some of his Love Electric mates to jazzrockjam those in the house. We spoke about the expectations of what the Madison crowd could expect, his time playing with and befriending Keb Mo as well as a special guest that will be on stage here Friday the 17th…The show went on with a flow like a squirrel jumping from tree branch ledge to tree branch ledge…..
