Weekend Jukebox: It’s Elemental…

Hopefully, unfussy music on  simple, important elements of our lives.

If that doesn’t appeal to you musically, give us what does.

Post away…..

Wave Bye Bye by Jesse Winchester

RIP Jesse, who died Friday.

Winchester, a war resister, made a life for himself in Canada in 1967, but came back to the US to work and eventually to live after President Carter’s amnesty (imagine a President doing that today). The NYT obit calls him a “writer and singer of thoughtful songs”.

Rock Me Baby by Big Mama Thorton
At this performance, in 1971, Thorton was thin, in poor health, and barely able to walk, but she kept right on performing for another decade.

The Waters of March  by Antonio Carlos Jobim
(at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 1986)
