12-19-19 Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #375

Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour was recorded at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts on a snowy November day and is an hour of inspired, visionary acoustic musical improvisation presented by The Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, dulcimer, ukuleles, native flute and acoustic 12-string guitar, Craig Harris on congas and native drums and Bob Sherwood on piano.  Today’s show begins with the lovely, light and very creative “Let’s Sail Into The Essence Of Love”, a driving and upbeat piece heightened by exemplary contributions from the whole ensemble.  “Just Put Down Your Day” is a skipping, Hawaiian-inflected folk song and “Cast Aside” brings in a mystical, reflective mood with swirling piano figures and a reflective vocal from Mariam.  “Oh Let’s Rise” is a rousing anthem to positive unity that gives way to a series of ragas led by Mariam’s sitar-like 12 string guitar; the mystical, spacious “Grateful” features an inspired improvised vocal and lyric from Mariam and “Ganesha” is a song of reverence and praise to the Indian diety.  Today’s show completes with an extension of this lovely tone poem to include Lakshmi and Saraswati.
