No question, Satchmo owns that song. I'm also remembering how long ago at sesshin, we read out loud a poem shortly before stopping for dinner.... "what a wonderful life" (Satchmo) was one.... "in the place where we are right" was another, and zen literature also.

oh my, sorry I missed Stevie. No TV. NYC stays in my heart tho it's been so long... a city is a wonderous thing where nothing is excluded. Back then, my roommate's father sponsored a trip by all us girls to the Rainbow Room. I went to school in East Orange, NY and it was a 90 cent bus ride to the city. There is only one "the city" to me even tho I'm not so far from San Francisco.

just rambling

Last night watched the great Stevie Wonder at the Global Citizen Festival take a knee and play beautiful harmonica, so was glad to follow-up here with Toots. But Satchmo still owns that song.

Next week I will wear my Kaepernick jersey to work on Friday. White tees, as usual, 'til then. Bet stuff will happen on NFL sports games today.

East Orange, New Jersey, I'd wager, not NY. East Orange, just east of Orange, NJ, which itself is just east of West Orange, NJ. ;)

NPR filmed a performance in their "Tiny Desk Concert" series with Brushy One String last year. It's below.

I'd posted a couple of his YouTube videos here earlier (some 10 pages above), one featuring him and some friends doing "Chicken In the Corn", and another while he was at a luthier's workshop in Argentina having his guitar refretted and otherwise repaired.

Almost 1.8 million people have seen this video.

Una canción de Violeta Parra, ...here sung by Chile's premier folkloric group, Inti Illimani.



Arriba Quemando el Sol

Cuando fui para la pampa
llevaba mi corazón contento
como un chirigüe,
pero allá se me murió,
primero perdí las plumas
y luego perdí la voz,
y arriba quemando el sol.

Cuando vide los mineros
dentro de su habitación
me dije: mejor habita
en su concha el caracol,
o a la sombra de las leyes
el refinado ladrón,
y arriba quemando el sol.

Las hileras de casuchas,
frente a frente, si, señor,
las hileras de mujeres
frente al único pilón,
cada una con su balde
y su cara de aflicción,
y arriba quemando el sol.

Fuimos a la pulpería
para comprar la ración,
veinte artículos no cuentan
la rebaja de rigor,
con la canasta vacía
volvimos a la pensión,
y arriba quemando el sol.

Zona seca de la pampa
escrito en un cartelón,
sin embargo, van y vienen
las botellas de licor,
claro que no son del pobre,
contrabando o qué sé yo,
y arriba quemando el sol.

Paso por un pueblo muerto
se me nubla el corazón,
aunque donde habita gente
la muerte es mucho peor,
enterraron la justicia,
enterraron la razón,
y arriba quemando el sol.

Si alguien dice que yo sueño
cuentos de ponderación,
digo que esto pasa en Chuqui ***
pero en Santa Juana es peor,
el minero ya no sabe
lo que vale su sudor,
y arriba quemando el sol.

Me volví para Santiago
sin comprender el color
con que pintan la noticia
cuando el pobre dice no,
abajo, la noche oscura,
oro, salitre y carbón,
y arriba quemando el sol.

*** "Chuqui" is Chuquicamata, near Calama de Chile, at 2850 meters, the world's largest open-pit
Copper mine. Nationalized after the 1973 military coup de etat. My copy of The South American Handbook (London, 1982) calls it "An astoundingly large hole". I've been there, and concur, and can call the claim conservative. -J.

Travelogue, in a way, of a favorite country.

Here you have Tito Fernandez of Chile, with his great song. Hear the names of cities recited, and immortalized, for their qualities.

¡Una cueca larga! "Una cuequita bien Chilena"... .

It's a good dance very much favored at Chile's Independence Day, "El dieciocho", the 18th of September, every year, ...about a week ago.

Spain fought Chile, and Spain lost, again. Bernardo O'Higgins was the great Chilean naval victor, and libertador. Every town in Chile has a street named "Bernardo O'Higgins".

The "Dieciocho" celebration continues for three days. And the convalescent recovery takes a bit longer besides (depending).



¡Y SIGO SIENDO CHILENO!

Letra: Orel Viciani
Música: Tito Fernández

Yo canto esta cueca larga,
con todito el sentimiento,
con la pena de estar lejos
pero el corazón contento.

Contento está el corazón,
a pesar de los desvelos,
rodando de tumbo en tumbo
y sigo siendo Chileno.

Chilenito sigo siendo,
quién me lo habrá de negar,
aunque las noches sean largas
siempre tendrán que pasar.

Siempre tendrán que pasar,
de eso yo estoy bien seguro,
nunca se ha visto que nadie
pueda parar el futuro.

El futuro no se para,
yo lo siento y lo lamento,
quien quiera que haga la prueba
de hacer pichí contra el viento.

Contra el viento no se puede,
mi vida estoy comenzando
a contar la cueca larga
que inventé un día, soñando.
¡Primera pata?.!

Les voy a contar, señores,
ramillete de jazmines,
como es que estoy tan re lejos
pero sigo estando en Chile.

En Chile sigo viviendo,
dulcesito de alfeñique,
mi corazón se quedó
en una calle de Iquique.

En una calle de Iquique,
a mí no me sacan pica,
he dejado la garganta
en un boliche de Arica.

De Arica son los boliches,
donde la plata se gasta,
mi sombrero y mi cabeza
se quedó en Antofagasta.

De Antofagasta me vuelvo,
porque así me da la gana,
yo dejé los pies bailando
en la fiesta'e La Tirana.

De La Tirana yo parto,
de la mano de una niña,
regalé mi costillar
en una quebrá'e Mamiña.
De Mamiña voy bajando,
derechito p'a las aguas,
enterré un ojito triste
en la arena de Pisagua.

De Pisagua caminando,
por esos cerros y a pata,
he dejado el otro ojo
mirando a Chuquicamata.

De Chuqui sigo bajando,
derechito p'a Calama,
ahí dejé manso suspiro
calentándome la cama.

De Calama me voy yendo,
por los caminos de dios,
se me quedó el rostro seco
en la plaza'e Copiapó.

De Copiapó caminando,
del Lunes hasta el Domingo,
se me quedaron las manos
en las playas de Coquimbo.

Coquimbo ¡caramba sí!
las papayas son re güenas,
se me quedaron los brazos
cuando pasé por Serena.

En Serena tomé el tren,
que me llevó por el riel,
y vendí mis veinte dedos
en la Estación de Illapel.

En Illapel las maletas
se me cayeron al agua,
se me gastaron las piernas
por los campos de Aconcagua.

De Aconcagua fui corriendo,
así la suerte lo quiso,
se me cocieron las tripas
chupando en Valparaíso.

De Valparaíso a Viña
me encontré con un amor,
que me comió hasta el tobillo
en un hotel de Con-Con.

En Con-Con me emborraché
con mi amigo, un tal Petronio,
y empeñé hasta los riñones
en el Puerto'e San Antonio.

San Antonio es muy hermoso,
y no es por hacer halago,
me mordieron la guatita
unas minas de Santiago.

Santiago es la Capital
y el amor es muy galante,
le regalé el pirulín
a una bruja en Talagante.

De Talagante embrujao,
me di una vuelta en el aire,
y me partí los colmillos
con un cacharro en Pomaire.

De Pomaire hasta Puente Alto,
de Calera hasta Quillota,
por dármelas de encachao
me dejaron empelotas.

Empelotas me dejaron,
yo no sé lo que pasó,
cuando perdí una canilla
una noche en Curicó.

De Curicó son las tortas,
de Talca París y Londres,
el poto sí no lo pierdo
¡caramba! porque soy hombre.

Hombre soy, soy hombrecito,
y lo digo con pasión,
se me mojó hasta el ombligo
con la lluvia en Concepción.

De Concepción a Lirquén,
con el agua hasta la tusa,
en Hualqui encontré a una caura
que le dicen "la Pelusa".

Pelusa, m'hijita rica,
versos vienen, versos van,
la panza llena'e mariscos
se me quedó por Chillán.

Chillán viejo, Chillán nuevo,
ya me anda penando el cuco,
p'a los que están escuchando
el que canta es de Temuco.

Es de Temuco el que canta,
pasé tremendo bochorno,
cuando dejé hasta los huesos
en una pensión de Osorno.

De Osorno voy a Valdivia,
manojito de copihues,
le regalé mi boquita
a una caurita en Llanquihue.

Llanquihue con Puerto Montt,
benaiga, dígame usté,
me robaron los bigotes
en la isla'e Chiloé.

De Chiloé pego un salto
y llego a un lugar donde hay que
ponerle precio a la vida
en la montaña en Coyhaique.

Coyhaique, voy terminando,
corazón hecho bandera,
el alma se me está helando
con el frío en Punta Arenas.
Y aquí se acaba la cueca,
¡chitas la payasá!
si alguno me mira feo
no canto ni una "hueá".
Hace tiempo que ando andando
y echando a Chile de menos,
los caminos van pasando
¡yo sigo siendo Chileno!

The late "Pig Pen" passed too soon, clearly. How can Nature compensate?

Those days are gone, and opportunity is lost. Take heed!

But here's an archival record of never-to-be-heard again competence, and swing and sway. Feller who knew what he was talking about, and got the Californians in the group to own it, too. But they knew him well. R.I.P.

"Easy Wind". Blessings, ever' body.



Easy Wind, well, her you go:

Easy Wind -- The Grateful Dead

I been balling a shiny black steel jack-hammer
Been chippin' up rocks for the great highway
I'll live five years if I take my time
Ballin' that jack and a drinkin' my wine

I been chippin' them rocks from dawn till doom
While my rider hide my bottle in the other room
Doctor say better stop ballin' that jack
If I live five years I gonna bust my back, yes I will

Easy wind cross the Bayou today
Cause there's a whole lotta women, mama
Out in red on the streets today
And the river keeps a talkin'
But you never hear a word it say

Gotta find a woman be good to me
Won't hide my liquor try to serve me tea
Cause I'm a stone jack baller and my heart is true
And I'll give everything that I got to you, yes I will

Easy wind going cross the Bayou today
There's a whole lotta women
Out on the streets in red, today
And the river keep a talkin'
But you never hear a word it say!
