03-05-20 Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #385

Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour was recorded live at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington Massachusetts on a rainy February afternoon and features Mariam Massaro on vocals, native flute, celtic harp, ukulele and acoustic guitar and Bob Sherwood on piano.  Today’s show begins with the laid-back, hopeful groove of “Hello, Hello Springtime”, a shifting, evocative piece that features an elegiac, impassioned lyric from Mariam as well as her lyrical native flute over Bob’s powerful piano motif.  “To The Glory Of The Early Morning” shifts from a languid, gospel-influenced introduction to a latin-jazz flavored vamp as Bob takes the lead with a series of Brazilian motifs that return continually to a powerful, simple refrain.  “Who Are We Becoming?” is a gorgeous, sprightly song built around Mariam’s impassioned, visionary lyric and melody.  Led by Mariam’s acoustic guitar, the piece wafts delicately, gradually gathering intensity, driven by a powerful, sensual lyric.  “Ripples Of Light” is a dreamy, evocative ballad led by Mariam’s 8 string ukulele.  The last half of the show is taken up by selections from Mariam’s albums, beginning with the dulcimer-driven “Smile” and “Happy I Am” from the “For The Children” album and we conclude with Mariam’s epic love ballad “Oh Great Lover”.
