07-12-18 Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #314 features the Gaea Star Band with special guest Joe Carvallo. An hour of live acoustic improv from Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts, the show was taped on a hot July Day in 2018 with Mariam Massaro on vocals, native flute, acoustic guitar, celtic harp and ukulele, Craig Harris on congas and Bob Sherwood on piano. Today’s first piece is the sultry, expansive “Summertime Stories”, a steady climb of a song built on mesmeric piano passages from Bob and metronomic, minimalist electric guitar from Joe. Mariam’s inspired lyric embodies peace, praise and gratitude and her soaring native flute takes wing over a jazz-rock odyssey. “There’s a Reason I Live In Worthington” is a hometown folk ballad with evocative electric guitar from Joe, woven into Mariam’s lovely, plaintive melody. “We’ll Hold You All The Time” grows into a beautiful jazz waltz with an aching piano figure from Bob over Craig’s grooving congas. “Ode To The Strawberry Moon” is a flamenco-inspired summer song that grows in intensity to a Spanish piano tour-de-force from Bob. “Gather Together” is a wistful, powerful, modal take on Mariam’s song from her 2009 CD “Gaea Star Crystal: Awakening The Tribes Of Light, again in waltz time, and features a winding, insistent rhythm section.
