Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #286

12-07-17  Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #286 was taped at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts and features the Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, native flute, celtic harp, dulcimer, ukulele, percussion and acoustic guitar, Craig Harris on native drum and congas and Bob Sherwood on piano.  Today’s hour reflects the coming of winter with the first piece “Under The Sky So Blue, Blue, Blue” reflecting a sunny, blustery winter day with Mariam’s chiming harp and snowy piano from Bob.  “Oh The Brilliant Sun Burst” is a lovely ukulele-driven gypsy jazz-folk excursion with an inspired, visionary lyric from Mariam as well as gorgeous native flute passages over an imaginative series of jazz piano figures from Bob.  “Good Feeling Love” is a stately ballad with elegiac piano from Bob and more graceful native flute from Mariam.  Craig holds down the fort with steady conga and percussion work.  “Glory, Glory” is a lush, mystical ballad in best Gaea Star Band form and “Beautiful Bouquets Ask Nothing” is a native-influenced excursion with a gorgeous piano arrangement from Bob and yet more evocative, lush native flute from Mariam in conversation with her beautiful vocal.
