This year, for Dia De Los Muertos, I built a shrine dedicated to the memory of those who fell during the conquest and colonization of the Americas.

In fifteen-hvndred and six
Colvmbvs crossed the river Styx.
Did he know what he wovld find
When he left
Madre España behind?
(i pledge allegiance to yovr flag
and all that jazz aside)

Trve north waiting?

Perhaps a pear-shaped world,
(Like a woman's honey breast)
Great golden calves to fatten and gorge on,
Vast watery doldrvms
In which to kill time,

The endless sea . . . .

. . . . . five hundred years later,
this is a prayer for those caught in his wake.

Phoenix Creative Music Movement

Wicked Children plays jazz interpretations of the music of Radiohead
@ Modified Arts
(2nd Street and Roosevelt in downtown Phoenix)

This Thursday, October 13th I will be taking part as featured singer in a performance by Wicked Children, a jazz nonet led by Adam Roberts that plays some beautifully rich arrangements and reharmonizations of various Radiohead tunes.
We go on about 8:00 . . .

This concert is part of the Phoenix Creative Music Movement, a continuing series of concerts promoting original work by the local jazz and classical and assorted esoterica communities. My own performance of the Thinkhorse Revue in December will be part of this same series. . . . stay tuned . . .
