03-03-22 Gaea Star Crystal Radio Hour #481 is an hour of visionary improvisational music recorded live by the Gaea Star Band with Mariam Massaro on Native flute, vocals, acoustic guitar, shruti box and ukulele, Bob Sherwood on piano and Craig Harris on congas and Native drums. Recorded live at Singing Brook Studio in Worthington, Massachusetts in February of 2022, today’s show begins with a fine, somberly romantic take of Mariam’s beautiful “Open Every Day” and a sprightly, playful version of her song “Make The Best”. “We Are All Alive To Remember” is a gorgeous, triumphant drone piece presented with great drama and built around the drone of Mariam’s shruti box and Native flute, eventually sliding into the second movement “This Moment”. “Changes” is a dynamic piece built upon Mariam’s dancing ukulele and imaginative, ever-shifting piano from Bob and “Just Transform To Release It All” is a dramatic minor key visionary ballad underpinned by Mariam’s driving acoustic guitar and Craig’s energized congas. “In The Pocket” is another acoustic guitar based song featuring a fine, searching vocal from Mariam and powerful Indian-influenced piano from Bob and we finish today’s show with a tight, driving take of Mariam’s “Gypsy”, a Jazzy, eastern European song from the “For The Children” album.
