12-10-20 Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #422 was recorded live in December, 2020 at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts, and is an hour of live visionary musical improvisation featuring the Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on vocals, native flute, ukulele and acoustic guitar, Robin Rooney on djembe, vocals and percussion, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on congas and native drums.  Today’s first piece is the somber, mysterious ballad “Alaymayatia”, a deeply mystical song with an inspired vocal from Mariam and a series of dancing piano ostinatos from Bob.  This hypnotic tone poem moves through a series of compelling movements before yielding to the equally misty “For The Grace”, a gorgeous night ballad praising the Golden Red Star in the southern sky.  “I Am the Silver In The Moonlight” is a gentle, open, ballad with a deeply generous spirit with Light Language from Mariam, pretty nature sounds from Robin, a steady, grounded groove from Craig and hypnotic, compelling piano motifs from Bob.  “Shamiyaya” is a full, spirited take on the reggae song from Mariam’s upcoming “Release” album, and we finish the show today with “Grandmother Moon”, a funked-up, driving afro Cuban jazz piece with classical underpinnings and excellent, racing flute from Mariam and exciting percussive piano from Bob.
